Best Amazon Spring Sale 2023 deals revealed - including shopping hack to get a £5 Echo Dot

Amazon has kicked off a huge three-day sale to celebrate the arrival of spring - with discounts of up to 68% on a wide range of tech, household essentials, fashion, beauty products and more.

Unlike the internet giant's Prime Day sale, you don't need to be an Amazon Prime member to access the Spring Sale, making it the perfect opportunity for regular shoppers to snap up some nifty bargains.

As with Prime Day and Black Friday, Amazon has also slashed prices on much of its own-brand tech for the sale - meaning if you're looking for a Ring doorbell, Echo home automation gadgets or Firesticks there's plenty of options available - with a stacking discount deal with TopCashback meaning you can get an Echo Dot for just £5.

Early bestsellers including electric toothbrushes reduced by up to 68%, Shark high-performance vacuum cleaners reduced by up to 44% and up to hair straighteners and other personal grooming gadgets reduced by up to 72%.

Meanwhile, bulk purchases of things like dishwasher tablets are also topping the most-bought list as shoppers try to save money in the face of increasing supermarket bills and the ongoing cost of living crisis.

The Amazon Spring 2023 sale was launched by former Big Brother star turned presenter Rylan Clark who has appeared in a series of social media videos helping shoppers spot the best deals.

Our favourite Amazon Spring Sale deals so far

Amazon Fire TVs from £169 - up to £500 off as a special launch offer

Move over Sky Glass, Amazon is coming for you. We all know satellite dishes are less popular nowadays, with homes with high speed broadband instead turning to high spec streaming TVs instead. To coincide with the Spring Sale, Amazon has unveiled its brand new Fire Smart TV range which has similar functionality to Sky's big name Glass tech, but comes in at up to £500 cheaper - although Sky has hit back with new deals since the announcement of Amazon's new range to try and keep their market share.

The new Smart TV comes in three different options and range of sizes, depending on your needs, and customers can save up to £300 for a limited time during the introductory period that ends on April 11th at 9am, meaning the entry point is just £169 for a 32 inch version (although it's only 720p so HD fans will need to pay more for the most intense quality).

All TVs are available for pre-order now and will be released on April 12th.

Shark Anti Hair Wrap Vacuum - reduced to £193, 45% off

Would it even be an Amazon sale without a Shark vacuum reduced? There are plenty discounted across this week's sale but this blue one is the trending product of the day and most popular option with bargain hunters.

Normally £349.99, the electric blue cordless model has 40 minutes run time and the anti-hair wrap technology Shark has become famous for.

Nespresso Vertuo Plus coffee machine - 62% off, now £83.66

Coffee lovers unite! The Krups branded machine works with the new style Vertuo capsules and makes the perfect brew in four different coffee cup sizes. So whether you like the caffeine hit of a thimble of espresso or a comforting mug to curl your fingers round as you watch TV they can all be made with the Vertuo Plus's 1.2l capacity one-touch system.

Whatever kind of coffee you like, don't forget to check out whether they're available on offer - capsules, ground and instant options are also included in the sale for around 20% off - but this is definitely one of those 'check what you normally pay' options, although if you're happy to buy and store in bulk some of the bigger deals work out surprisingly well. Eighty cups of Kenco Americano Tassimo for less than £20 works out at less than 25p a cup. We can all drink to that.

Beats Studio3 wireless headphones - were £349.95 now £199.99 (43% off)

Beats By Dr Dre's wireless noise cancelling over-ear headphones are 43% off in the sale. Available in stylish black and red they have the Apple W1 headphone chip and Class 1 Bluetooth, offering 22 hours of high quality listening time.

How to get the best prices in the 2023 Amazon Spring Sale

As we all love a good deal, Amazon has provided savvy bargain hunters with some handy tips to make sure that they are getting the best prices.

But before you click 'buy' on anything, the simplest way to be sure you're getting a great Amazon sale discount actually comes from another site entirely.

CamelCamelCamel is a price tracker made just for products listed on Amazon, so shoppers can see how much a specific item they're looking at has previously been sold for on the platform.

This is especially helpful when looking at products which might have similar specifications but be slightly different, especially those sold by third-party sellers through the Amazon site.

Shoppers can also check out the "WOW! deals" section, which features the highest discounts across top-branded products.

Although you might want to be quick if you spot something, as the deals will only be available for just two hours and there will only be a limited amount of stock available.

All of the deals in the sale are on the Amazon landing page which will be regularly updated until the end of the sale at 11.59pm on Wednesday (March 29).
