With summer underway, dining alfresco is part of most of our daily schedules. Whether you’re catching up with mates in the park, heading off on a camping break, or planning an epic barbecue in your back garden, eating under sunny blue skies feels like a well-earned reward after months of tedious isolation, restrictions and lockdowns.
With a diary packed full of cookout events, your grill needs to be up to scratch. If you’re in need of a replacement, there’s no better time to pick up a new BBQ than the Amazon Prime Day sales.
If it feels like Amazon’s annual sale has come round faster than usual, you’re not wrong. The pandemic pushed back the discount bonanza, usually held in the summer, to October last year. Now it’s back, running from June 21 and 22, and the timing couldn’t be better with the best of summer still to come.
As well as TWO MILLION deals across tech, fashion, food and drink, small business, home security and more, the retail giant has cut the price of dozens of home hosting essentials - and BBQ grills are in the mix.
There are stationary beasts big enough to feed the whole family (and next door’s too, probably), as well as portable, electric models that you can sling into the car boot for your next camping trip under the stars. The ES Best team has sliced through the bulk to bring you red-hot juicy deals that really sizzle.
But before we present the best BBQ deals for Amazon Prime Day 2021, there’s one thing to check.
If you want to take advantage of the epic offers, you’ll need to be signed up to Prime membership. As well as cut-price deals and free next day delivery, membership opens the doors to Amazon’s other services, like Video for endless TV, movies and documentaries, and Music - with two million tracks, you’ll never be at a loss for something to listen to. Members also have access to gaming, the library, podcasts and cloud storage to keep your images safe.
With so much on offer, the annual price of £79 feels miniscule. If you prefer a monthly payment, it’s £7.99 a month, with students paying even less at £3.99 a month for the same services - a wiser way to spend student loan money than in the SU bar, that’s for sure.
You don’t even have to cough up right now - sign up for a free 30-day trial and see if it’s for you first.
If you’re already a member, let’s not waste a minute more. Here are the best deals on grills and BBQs this Amazon Prime Day!
