Best laptop deals to expect in the Amazon Prime Day sale 2024

Hybrid working has elevated our laptops to the most important piece of tech most of us own.

Gone are the days of the bulky desktop computer - even Mark Zuckerberg codes using a portable device.

Yet even with their heightened status, it is still a daunting process to upgrade - and this comes down to the initial outlay. A new laptop is expensive but it doesn't have to put so much of a dent on your bank balance.

Follow in the footsteps of savvy shoppers and save shopping for your replacement device during big sales events.

Luckily, one is coming over at Amazon.

What is the Amazon Prime Day?

If you’re new to Amazon’s shopping events, strap in. In the last couple of years, the one-stop shop has treated its customers to a series of sales that are not to be missed. Bargain hunters will create their wish lists in preparation for the big sales bonanzas and finally take the plunge when they spot heavily reduced RRPs.

In 2023, there was the Spring Sale in March, Amazon Prime Day in July and the Big Deal Days in October.

There will be deals across kids’ toys, lawnmowers, alcohol, TVs, vacuum cleaners and much, much more.

When is Amazon Prime Day 2024?

Like clockwork, Amazon’s flagship Prime Day sale takes place in July each year – except for one rogue year during lockdown. In 2023, it took place over two days on July 11 and 12.

How to take part in Amazon Prime Day

It is essential to be an Amazon Prime member to take part in the Prime Day event. This costs £8.99 per month or £95 per year but if you’re a student, this is reduced to £4.49 per month or £47.49 per year. There’s also a 30-day free trial so you can try it commitment free first. Not only will this subscription give you access to Amazon’s plentiful sales but you will also be able to stream Prime Video and Amazon Music, get free delivery on Deliveroo, and of course make the most of next-day delivery.
