The online mail order company is warming itself up for the approaching Christmas business and the bargain hunt around Black Friday: with special offers in September. After the first week of offers, the discounts are extended. We looked around for interesting special offers for you.
Amazon offers: only on special days? No!
Wif he likes to shop online and also looks at the price, he usually starts in June to at least mentally create a small wish list. Because Prime Day in mid-June, with numerous offers and discounts, is considered by many to be the online shopping event of the summer. Recently, there have been increasing signs that Prime Day will have an offshoot in autumn. However, this is traditionally occupied by the Black Friday discount event, which has recently been expanded to include Cyber Monday and Cyber Week.
Amazon recently started another special offer at the end of the summer with discounts of over 70 percent in some cases. But deal foxes at Amazon & Co. also get their money’s worth outside of the prominent bargain days. We looked around in the jungle of percentages and put together some offers.

Some discounts come out unexpectedly, while others are used to free up space in the warehouse for newer products and to please interested buyers.

When do special discount campaigns take place?
Online mail order companies like Amazon organize discount campaigns several times a year. In particular, Prime Day and Black Friday and the subsequent Cyber Monday have established themselves as international sales events. In addition, there was recently a special offer from Amazon between April 6th and 14th. September 2021 – as the end of summer and a foretaste of Black Friday.
Regardless of this, various retailers reserve the right to regularly discount products. There are daily changing offers of the day *, each of which remains live in the Amazon universe for 24 hours, while stocks last, as well as lightning offers with even smaller quantities that are valid for a maximum of 12 hours. As soon as a new discount campaign is launched, you will find out about it in the purchase advice section at WELT.
Amazon offers: view products and save
The respective offers of the day are gathered on an offer page *, which is broken down into further subcategories. If you already know which areas are of interest to you, it will make browsing easier for you and you will find the products that suit you faster. Since, for example, flash offers are available to members of Amazon Prime 30 minutes earlier, it can be worthwhile to take out a trial membership * – this is free for 30 days.
Amazon offers: Customers have to be quick
According to the group, the “offers of the day” are valid for 24 hours – but only while stocks last. The bargain hunters have to be even faster to secure one of the lightning offers: These are only available for 12 hours. Since the lightning offers should be available from 6 a.m., early risers have a clear advantage. Members of Amazon Prime are also ahead of the game: They can access the lightning offers 30 minutes before everyone else. Of course, this also applies to anyone who quickly signs up for a free trial membership.
Note on bargains: Do not buy blindly
Only 24 hours to strike, and then only while stocks last: Your fingers can get very itchy to first order and then answer the question of whether the product is actually needed. Nevertheless, take a moment to consider the purchase – is the product offered really what you need or want? And is the price really the best? Since many other providers are also lowering their prices in the summer, it is certainly worthwhile to keep an eye on their price development. To do this, check manufacturer websites and price comparison websites such as Idealo.de (like WELT, belongs to Axel Springer SE) to see how much you really save on your purchase. When it comes to technology, you should also check whether the products on offer are really new or whether they are refurbished models. Perhaps the models on offer are a bit older – if that bothers you, you shouldn’t be dazzled by particularly low prices. But if you want to freshen up technology, furniture or tools anyway, it is certainly worth checking the Amazon offers.
