Online auction and shopping website eBay will host its big sale day on July 15, overlapping with the first day of Amazon's Prime Day.

But it's also a way for Amazon to get more people to sign up for its $119-a-year Prime membership.

The £20-off deal on an annual Prime subscription, which is usually £79 per year, is available now until midnight on Tuesday 16th July, when Prime Day officially ends.

Sara Skirboll, a shopping expert at the deals site RetailMeNot, recommends setting up a "wish list" on the Amazon app and allowing it to send notifications so you can get alerts if those items get a price cut.

Amazon's Prime membership offer comes just days ahead of the annual Prime Day sale. That way you won't cave to the temptation and buy a bunch of stuff you don't need just because it's labeled a deal.

"You have some time to cool off, " he says. Just keep in mind to set a calendar reminder to cancel the subscription before you're charged $12.99 a month or $119 for the year. Without a Prime membership you won't be able to take advantage of the deals at all. It's turned into a mid-summer event for deal-hunting shoppers, and it's drawn hot competition from other retailers. It can help you see if you're really getting the lowest price or if the item tends to be cheaper during other times of the year.
