In addition to tens of thousands of ‘Lightning Deals’ throughout the 30-hour shopping period – with new deals starting as often as every five minutes – Prime members will find curated ‘Spotlight Deals’.

A collection of ‘Spotlight Deals’ will run from 6pm to midnight today, with others running from midnight tonight to midnight tomorrow, so shoppers will find new deals on both days.

Further deals will be released at midnight tonight, including up to 50% off products from Kenwood, Breville and Tefal, including a Breville Personal Blender for £17.99.

Prime Day 2016 was a record-breaking success for small businesses and entrepreneurs worldwide participating in the event, who saw orders nearly triple year-over-year.

For 2017, there will be thousands of small businesses and entrepreneurs taking part, accounting for nearly 40% of all ‘Lightning Deals’.

Top deals from small businesses include 30% off Andrew James kitchen appliances and 30% off the Instant Pot Duo 8L pressure cooker.
