The New Year has arrived, and right now there are great deals to be had on speakers, smart home tech, laptops, and more. Here, we bring you the best Amazon deals available, and some top tips to help make sure you don’t miss out on a bargain.
Best Amazon deals of January 2018
Here's our pick of the best deals from across Amazon right now.
1. Fitbit Ionic
Now: £199 (£80 off)
Fitbit's high-end GPS fitness smartwatch is perfect for both the multi-sports enthusiast and the casual get-fit user
2. Apple iPad 9.7in (2018)
Now: £312.61 (£6 off)
The iPad 9.7in (2018) is our current recommended buy, but because it's such good value at full price there isn't much room for discounts. Around Black Friday 2018 Amazon was offering a respectable £19 off, but at time of writing KRCS's small discount on the 32GB model is the best we can find. (Amazon are selling it for slightly more: £315.)
3. HP Deskjet 2630 All-in-One Printer
Now: £24.00 (£25.99 off)
This compact HP inkjet printer can print, copy and scan. It comes with a 3 month trial of HP instant ink - which re-orders ink so you have it when you need it.
4. Amazon Echo Input with UE Boom 3 Wireless Speakers Bundle
Now: £99.99 (£65 off)

How to get the best Amazon deals
Amazon unloaded many of its best deals last year during Black Friday and Christmas, but that doesn't mean you can't pick up a discount now.
Amazon hosts excellent deals throughout the year and updates its Deals of the Day every day. Deals of the Day tend to be discounted products that Amazon has a significant amount of stock for, but you’ll still want to grab them quickly as the best ones will fly off the shelves, especially as we approach the Christmas shopping season.
Even more tricky to grab before they’re gone are Lightning Deals. There are lots of them every day, and they last for a very limited time with very limited stock.
To make sure you don’t miss out, we’d recommend signing up for Amazon Prime. You can get a 30 day free trial of Amazon Prime, or sign up for a year for £79 or £7.99 per month. In the US it’s $119 per year or $12.99 per month.
In a nutshell, Amazon Prime gets you more than just early access to deals. You’ll also get free next day delivery (sometimes items are even delivered on the day you order them), access to Amazon Prime Video (a TV and movie streaming service that rivals Netflix and Now TV) and more. Check out all of the Prime features on Amazon’s website.
If you’re a student, you can get Amazon Prime for free for six months. After that it’s only £3.99/$6.49 per month, or £39/$59 annually, which is half the price of a regular subscription. Click here to sign up for Amazon Prime Student.
The top Amazon deals we’ve listed here are across the entire range of products that the company stocks, but Amazon often offers incredible deals on its own products too. You can see the best Amazon Echo deals from across the web in our round-up here.
The new Echo devices available to buy now, and there are several deals and bundle deals available on the new products. Choose the product you’re looking to buy and you’ll see the bundles available beneath the colour options. You may also spot that buying two Echo devices can get you a discount. Details of those deals will be shown beneath the price.
Amazon Warehouse deals
We’ve not included Warehouse deals in our top deals from Amazon, but it’s well worth having a look there. Amazon Warehouse items can be incredibly cheap, but they are open-box and returned items. Amazon will have ensured that the product is in working order, and will price it based on quality. You’ll find everything from laptops and phones to video games and toys available there.
Amazon certified refurbished devices
Another place worth checking if you’re looking for one of Amazon’s own devices is its certified refurbished offering. Amazon repairs and tests all of its refurbished devices rigorously and provides a one year warranty - which means you can rest assured that the device will work just as new.
