Searching for the best deals on Big Deal Days on a wide range of products, including phones, TVs, laptops, and headphones? Here they are, exactly.
For Amazon, Black Friday and Prime Day are insufficient anymore. Amazon Big Deal Days are a new sale season that debuted this year. For Prime members alone, it’s a kind of October Prime Day and Black Friday pre-party.
October 10 and October 11 are the only Big Deal Days this year, so this is your final chance to score a deal.
We’ve combed through tens of thousands of Amazon UK offers to weed out the fakes and uncover the real discounts.
Here is a list of some of our favourites. These are the tech purchases—some of which are included in WIRED Recommends—that we believe are both excellent values and useful items.
- £250 for the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite (£100 discount)
In 2022, the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite saw a big upgrade, but the name remained the same. This is because the tablet is so understated. But this tablet is the finest for reasonably priced solitary digital artwork, and we anticipate it selling for £350 all year long. After this first purchase, there is no need to pay any money because you get a S Pen stylus in the package. With a respectable 10.4-inch 1200p screen and a powerful, albeit understated, Snapdragon CPU, it is also good for other tasks. It’s arguably the greatest inexpensive tablet overall.
- Predator Helios 300 Acer for £1,350 (savings of £600)
Acer’s laptops for no-compromise performance gaming are categorised as Helios. Although it’s not designed to be extremely portable or light, gamers should still desire that. It indicates improved performance and cooling. This machine is from the previous generation, although it wasn’t that long ago that it cost over £2,000. The Nvidia RTX 3080 graphics card, which is at least two tiers better than gaming laptops that sell for this much, and the 1440p display are notable higher-end features. It looks to be £50 cheaper than Amazon’s all-time low pricing and up to £700 cheaper than other stores. The identical machine is being sold by one reseller for £150 extra as a “open box” used item. Whoa.
- £60 (£20 discount) for a Logitech G502 Lightspeed wireless mouse
The price of Logitech’s well-liked G502 Lightspeed gaming mouse is the lowest it has been in eighteen months. and a sizable portion less than what it sells for the majority of the year. This wireless mouse has a lot of buttons and is mostly intended for gamers. Nonetheless, Excel spreadsheets will function just as well with it. It’s fine if you think it’s overly combative. Instead, have a look at the MX Master 2S, MX Anywhere 2S, and G305 Lightspeed. They are all available for purchase and meet various demands in terms of form and appearance.
- MSI Thin GF63 costs £680, saving £120.
The MSI Thin GF63 gained some notoriety as one of the most affordable laptops equipped with a graphics card from the Nvidia RTX 40 series. Now that it is £120 less expensive than it is at other stores, we have a real gem on our hands. Purchase one of these if you have a limited budget but yet want to be able to play games. Yes, with only 45W available, it utilises almost the least powerful version of the RTX 4050. There is no denying this device’s power per pound, even with a 12th generation Intel CPU.
- £1600 (£350 discount) gets you a Panasonic Lumix S5 II camera with a 50mm lens.
If you’re interested in full-frame mirrorless cameras, this is a wonderful choice. The camera body and 50mm f1.8 lens are being sold by Amazon in an odd bundle, but it’s easy to calculate how much of a deal we’re getting. Typically, the camera body alone should cost you around £1750, while the lens typically costs between £345 and £430. That’s an almost £600 save. A prudent consumer would never spend so much. Perhaps astute purchasers ought to take this package into account. Remember that this isn’t the “X” edition, which comes with a few more features. However, this camera is not that ancient. In January 2023, it was made available.If you’re interested in full-frame mirrorless cameras, this is a wonderful choice.

- £410 (£70 discount) for the PlayStation 5 EA FC 24 bundle
If the labelling is accurate, this console combo isn’t officially included in Prime Big Deal Days, but it’s still worth a shot. The PlayStation 5 disc edition and the newly released EA FC 24, which is essentially FIFA (but not), are available from Amazon right now for about £60 less than the price of a PS5 alone. Why is that? Sony just unveiled the PS5 Slim, a redesign of the PlayStation 5. It will retail for £480, is 30% smaller, and becomes available in November. But this could be one of the finest offers we come across before to Christmas. Furthermore, the PlayStation 5 Slim doesn’t appear all that different from earlier iterations of the PlayStation system.
- Shark IZ300UKT Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaner for £230 (savings of £70)
The main query you could have about this purchase is: how does it stack up against a Dyson? You may consider a Dyson V8 as an option for this amount of money. Compared to the Shark, it has a 40–60 minute battery life. Along with having anti-pet hair technology, the Shark folds up for simpler storage, and evaluations indicate that its suction is excellent. Increased value but diminished brand recognition? Possibly.
- £120 for Elgato Stream Deck (£20 discount)
One of the most important tools for those who stream on websites like Twitch is an Elgato Stream Deck. It is a surface for control. Every button has a little display that explains precisely what it does behind it, and you can completely customise these features. There are now two Stream Deck models available for purchase. The regular version has fifteen buttons. And the Stream Deck Plus, which has four control knobs, an extra display, and eight buttons. This one is better for producing audio live. Unfortunately, just the white models are marked down.
- £40 (£40 off) for Kärcher WV2 Plus window cleaner
Though it’s not the most interesting piece of “tech” available, this product is nevertheless an excellent value at half the amount you would pay if you bought it directly from Kärcher. This window and work surface cleaner leaves no streaks behind by first spraying water and then sucking the residue back up after wiping. Applying cleaning solution with the sprayer/mop attachment comes first. After that, you complete the task using the window vac. Both components are included in this bundle together with an extra, narrower hoover head.
- £149 for Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 Pro (savings of £60)
Samsung might not be associated with audio. However, Samsung currently owns Harman, which created the Harman Curve, the tuning standard for audio equipment. The Galaxy Buds 2 Pro are only one example of how that knowledge is put to use; they received a 9/10 rating and a WIRED Recommends badge. They feature great sound quality, robust noise cancellation, and a decent microphone array that allows you to conduct clear conversations even in noisy areas like crowded streets.
- Laptop Lenovo Legion 5 Slim Gaming for £1,300 (savings of £120)
For the past several years, Lenovo’s Legion series has been among the finest options for anyone looking for a high-quality, reasonably priced gaming laptop. This specific offer is for a new model; elsewhere, it would cost anything from £120 to £200 more. We receive the most recent Nvidia RTX 4060 graphics card, a metal casing, and excellent core specifications. This comes with an Intel i7 13700H CPU, 16GB of RAM, and a 1TB SSD. With good colour reproduction and a resolution of 2560×1600 pixels, the 16-inch display also goes well beyond the essentials.
- Blender Nutribullet 600 for £40 (savings of £20)
Even if they are difficult to clean, little blenders like this one are perhaps the fastest and most straightforward method to prepare a smoothie for breakfast. Only a few years ago, this well-known Nutribullet blender was a desirable lifestyle kitchen appliance. The 600W motor is housed under a lid that also functions as a cup. A Nutribullet 600 package that includes an extra, smaller cup is also available. But if all you want to do is take a spin around one of these smoothie machines, it might not be worth the extra £10.
- £1150 for an HP Omen 30L with £200 discount
For the price, the HP Omen 30L has great specifications. It all comes down to the AMD Ryzen 5800X CPU and the Nvidia RTX 3080 graphics card. Since this is an instance of older stock getting disposed of, neither is new; yet, they were deadly components in 2021. They continue to outperform their mid-range counterparts from today, albeit you might have to pay extra for them. There are two problems: Nvidia’s almost miraculous frame creation capability is not available if you use a last-generation graphics card, and the Omen 30L casing has restricted ventilation.
- £1,300 for the LG UltraGear 45GR95QE OLED monitor (£100 discount)
The LG 45GR95QE is a contender for the most immersive gaming monitor available. It is a 21:9 display with an ultra-wide 21:9 aspect ratio that hugs your face to better fill your field of view. With its 45-inch diameter and 240Hz OLED display, it provides flawless blacks even in low-light environments. While it may be costly, the pricing here is still £100-400 less than it would be elsewhere. Seek for something more reasonable? Its 27-inch flat (although OLED) brother is likewise discounted by about £55 at this time.
- 2nd generation Amazon Echo Buds just £45 (originally £85).
When buying things from Amazon, the best deals are usually during their promotions. This one could have slipped your mind. In 2021, the wireless earbuds known as Echo Buds 2nd generation were awarded the WIRED Recommends badge. Two years of lost development are readily made up for by cutting the cost by two thirds. These earbuds include active noise cancellation and a pleasing sound quality. Though it’s not as good as Sony’s or Bose’s, just have a peek at that pricing.
