For UK Amazon-ers, there's now a great deal going for Prime Membership - you can save £20 on the annual cost, reducing it to just £59 for a whole year. And this year's doorbuster sales event will be more distracting than ever, as Amazon has decided to make it a two-day shopping extravaganza running through the end of Tuesday.

The made-up holiday, first held in 2015, has become one of Amazon's busiest shopping days, offering discounts on gadgets, television sets, and other goods. And this year, despite its name, Prime Day is happening on two days: July 15 and July 16. Banking on the promotion's huge success last year, the big-box retailer expanded the one-day event to two days this year-again, just like Amazon. Before you buy, give yourself some time to think about whether you actually need the items you're eyeing.

"You have some time to cool off, " he says.

The deals are only for Prime members. It will take you to the Prime landing page, where clicking the "Try Prime" button will automatically charge your card - but you can cancel anytime. You can get £20 off right now, reducing the overall cost to just £59 for the year.

So, in case you are not an Amazon Prime member or fear that Monday and Tuesday will be too intense for online shopping during work time, here are four equally exciting sales hosted by Amazon's competitors around the same time frame.

But the retailer does promise to expand on last year's insane successful Prime Day-opposing One-Day sale with two distinct days of killer deals on items as diverse as furniture, indoor rugs, kitchen appliances, books, bedding, cookware, floorcare, sandals, toys, sporting goods, vehicle seats and strollers, and much more.

Amazon's primary rival Walmart has joined forces with Google to offer pre-Prime Day deals on a range of smart home devices now through July 17. So don't forget to search around on other sites to make sure a product isn't cheaper elsewhere.

Use price-tracking websites, such as CamelCamelCamel or Keepa, to see how the price of an item has changed on Amazon over time.
