Amazon End of Summer Sale bargains

1. Portable Projector

The home projector has never been more in demand, as homeowners seek the ultimate home cinema experience. This smart portable design allows the freedom to set up the projector in any room with ease.

This five star says it all, 'I have used really expensive projectors before at work for presentations and never understood why they were so expensive - they were only ever ok, albeit 'brand' names. So having seen this and reading reviews, thought I would give it a try for 60-odd quid - wasn't expecting it to be as good; but how wrong was I! It is simply amazing. It's mid-weight, feels really great value for money, looks good and feels great - inputs and buttons all feel high quality etc.'

Recently voted one of our favourites in our Best Smart Speakers 2020 buying guide, the cute little Dot has just been reduced by £20 in all of its stylish colour ways – Charcoal, Sandstone, Heather and Plum (shown).

Our reviewer Steve May thinks it's a great working-from-home companion. He reports, 'Boasting the same footprint of a coffee mug, and half the height, it won’t take up too much room on your desktop. It can function as a diddy voice assistant, playing tunes in the background while you work, offer news updates or assist with currency conversions on the fly.'

How does £100 off a Shark rose gold vacuum cleaner sound to you? We think it's a great deal, especially as it comes with a motorised pet tool to shift pesky hairs off carpets, rugs and sofas.

It's received hundreds of five-star reviews, with customers praising its size. 'The whole thing folds down and becomes surprisingly small for storage,' enthuses one happy user. Another remarks, 'Excellent. Carpets that have been down for years now have a new lease of life.'

This Deal of the Day is selling out fast, so grab it while you can!

'I bought this rug in a different color about a year ago for our living room and was so impressed that I bought a second one for our new baby's nursery! It's soft and looks great. The best part is how easily stains come out!' says another.
