On July 12th and 13th, the shipping giant Amazon offered thousands of branded products at heavily reduced prices. With the “Prime Day”, the retailer wants to make its “Amazon Prime” membership program attractive every year – the low prices only apply to members of the service. However, a free trial month is enough to order at the better conditions. If you have been planning to purchase a specific product for some time, it may be worth taking out a Prime subscription.
This year Amazon is hosting a second Prime Day, on October 11th and 12th. In order not to lose track of all the offers, we have compiled a list of products that are actually worthwhile.

Anyone who hasn't heard of Amazon's now annual campaign will ask themselves: What is Prime Day and does it offer really good deals that make it worth keeping an eye on?
Prime Day is a shopping event at the online mail order company Amazon. It should be noted that only Prime members, including those with a Prime student membership, can benefit from the Prime Day offers, all other customers buy the products at the regular price. However, it is possible to test the subscription to the online mail order company for 30 days free of charge*. In this way, users can spontaneously enjoy a few bargains. In addition to free premium shipping for many items, it also offers a wide range of streaming content - if you don't want this, you can cancel your subscription during the test phase. In any case, Prime Day is good business for Amazon, because the campaign not only increases sales, but also helps the company to achieve a sharp increase in completed subscriptions.
Amazon will also have special offers in its range for Prime Day this year. In recent years, Fire TV sticks, Echo speakers and Kindle readers have sold like hot cakes. No wonder, after all, the company praises its own products particularly intensively. But Amazon also sold half a million PC products on Prime Day, and customers also bought a number of hardware store bargains and over a million beauty products.
Prime Day Highlights include selected discounted items from well-known brands. The motto for all offers on Amazon Prime Day is: only while stocks last and at most for as long as stated for the respective offer. The “Prime Day” offers can be found at amazon.de/primeday* and on the Amazon homepage. In the "Amazon Prime Day" overview, many Amazon products are expected to be presented again, but also a number of branded items.
You can save money with many Prime Day offers. Nevertheless, you should not be blinded by a supposedly unbeatable price. There is even time for a price comparison when Amazon increases the pressure due to low or limited availability. Check the manufacturer websites and price comparison sites such as Idealo.de* (belongs to Axel Springer SE like WELT) to see whether you can really save something with the offer.
Ultimately, what is also decisive on Prime Day is that a product that you neither need nor really want is not a good buy, even if it is heavily discounted. But if you are already looking for a new smartphone, tablet, television or headphones, you can definitely find what you are looking for as an Amazon Prime customer. And if you don't like an offer after the bargain rush has passed, make use of your right of return.
