Ahead of its big shopping event in a couple of weeks, Amazon is knocking 20% off home essentials for Prime members. This early Prime Day deal sees a chunk of cash knocked of a full range of home essentials, from furniture and storage options to blackout curtains, sheets and towels. 

To claim these deals, you need to be an Amazon Prime member – but remember, there's an option to start with a 30-day free trial, and if you sign up now you'll also be able to advantage of the offers running over Amazon Prime day itself (13-14 Oct) – and if it doesn't suit you, you can always cancel after that.
