After months of speculation, the dates of the Prime Early Access have been announced, with the 48-hour shopping event taking place on Tuesday 11 October and Wednesday 12 October.
One of the best times to score a saving across TVs, laptops, gaming, home appliances, mattresses and so much more, the Prime Day two-day event took place in its usual slot of July earlier this year. We saw everything from the online giant’s own Echo dot smart speakers to Shark’s vacuum cleaners and Emma mattresses drop to record low prices – and now, you have a second chance to snap up the deals.
Just like Black Friday, one of the best areas you can save in during the sale is on home appliances. Whether you’re after a cordless vacuum, coffee machine, fridge-freezer or kettle, there’s thousands of sizable discounts up for grabs.
And with the cost-of-living crisis, Prime Day is the perfect opportunity to save on an energy-efficient appliance to help keep costs down this winter, from air fryers and heated airers to plug-in heaters.
To help you navigate the mammoth sale, IndyBest’s team of dedicated deal-hunters will be handpicking the best deals and discounts across home appliances and other categories, from beauty to tech and laptops. Ahead of this year’s October sale, here you’ll find everything you need to know about Amazon’s second Prime Day sale – and most importantly, the best deals to expect.
When will Prime Day kitchen appliances and cleaning deals begin?
Amazon has confirmed the second Prime Day event will take place from 11-12 October, with the deals spanning home appliances, fitness, beauty, tech, gaming and more. Just like the July sale, we can expect to see discounted products from big-ticket brands such as Ninja, Shark, Dyson, Sage and KitchenAid. The deals will begin with flash offers, which will spread out across the 48-hour event.
Do you need Amazon Prime to buy Prime Day kitchen appliances and cleaning deals?
Yes, to shop the deals, you need an Amazon Prime membership, paid for either monthly or annually. Alternatively you can enjoy a 30-day free trial – which means you could cancel your membership after the event. The free trial only applies if you’ve haven’t already signed up in the past 12 months.
What to expect from Prime Day kitchen appliances and cleaning deals in 2022
We don’t yet know what exactly will be discounted during the October Prime Day sale, but Amazon’s last sale in July can give us a pretty good picture.
We saw a 32 per saving on Instant Pot’s multi-cooker, £120 slashed off the price of Eufy’s robot vacuum and 50 per cent off one of our favourite deep fat fryers from Tefal. If you’re after a new vacuum, Prime Day is the perfect opportunity – with July’s sale featuring top-rated Shark and Gtech models.
Meanwhile, those looking for a better night’s sleep were treated to a £40 discount on Panda’s mattress topper as well as a sizable 50 per cent off Simba’s hybrid double mattress.
The best kitchen appliances and cleaning deals to shop ahead of Prime Day
Before the main event kicks off, there are plenty of stellar savings to be had on kitchen appliances and cleaning products. You can save 34 per cent on Shark’s cordless stick vacuum cleaner IZ201UKT (was £379.99, now £249, Amazon.co.uk). “We know it’s a little weird to get excited about a vacuum cleaner but we were genuinely bowled over by this vacuum’s super-clever Flexology technology,” said our reviewer about this Shark model in our round-up of the best cordless vacuum cleaners.
“Its flexible wand bends to easily clean under sofas and coffee tables, with an LED headlight to illuminate hidden dust in every corner,” our tester added. You can also save more than 30 per cent on Eufy’s boostiq robovac robot vacuum cleaner (was £189.99, now £129.99, Amazon.co.uk).
Said to quietly operate with up to 100 minutes of power time, the powerful suction is teamed with smart features such as the anti-scratch tempered glass, infrared-sensor for avoiding obstacles and drop-sensing tech to avoid falls. In a review of a slightly different Eufy model, our tester said it is “solid, dependable and gets the job done with little fuss”.
Want to enjoy barista-quality brews at home? De’Longhi’s bean-to-cup coffee machine (was £499.99, now £328.99, Amazon.co.uk) is reduced by more than 30 per cent right now. The appliance features an intergrated grinder, seven adjustable coarseness levels, a milk frother and more. From cappuccinos to strong espressos or americanos, customise your coffee, depending on your preference.
