To the offer on Amazon ❯

We use the price search engine geizhals.de for our price comparison. On the one hand, we compare the offer with the manufacturer's recommended retail price (RRP), which usually reflects the market launch costs. On the other hand, we of course look at how much other, reputable, online retailers are asking for a product.

This is usually the more interesting comparison, as the EIA usually differs significantly from the current street price. When comparing with other retailers, we only consider well-known and reputable retailers with corresponding ratings and a company headquarters in Germany. We usually leave out smaller eBay or Amazon Marketplace sellers in our price comparison.

Lightning deals and last minute deals

In addition to the daily offers (last minute offers), Amazon also has so-called lightning offers. These are only valid for a few hours and the number of discounted products is also limited. New lightning offers are activated every 15 or 30 minutes throughout the day.

On special days like Black Friday or Cyber ​​Monday, however, there can also be new lightning offers every five minutes. If you like a product, you put it in your virtual shopping cart. After that, you only have 15 minutes to pay at the checkout.

Below is an overview of the current flash offers from the entertainment electronics sector. Please note: We have not performed a price comparison here, but rely on the price information from Amazon.

More advantages with Amazon Prime

As a Prime subscriber, you not only benefit from free premium shipping and free access to the in-house music and video streaming services on Amazon. You also have access to lightning deals 30 minutes early.

»Subscribe to Amazon Prime now

You can test the paid subscription to Amazon Prime for 30 days free of charge, after which the service costs 69 euros per year or, alternatively, 7.99 euros per month. Students and trainees can currently secure the Prime offer for a full 12 months free of charge. On our overview page we give you an overview of all the advantages of Amazon Prime.

Amazon voucher

Since you can buy almost anything on Amazon, an Amazon voucher is a popular gift. You can buy this on the retailer's website and set a value for the gift card yourself. It is also possible to buy vouchers for other retailers, streaming services and more on Amazon.

Shipping

For non-Prime members, there are shipping costs for purchases under 29 euros when ordering from Amazon. Prime customers only have to pay for express delivery. As a non-Prime member, you have to pay these fees:

  • Standard shipping for media products, Amazon devices as well as fashion and sportswear: 2.89 euros
  • Standard shipping for products of all other categories: 3.89 euros
  • Premium shipping for media products, Amazon devices as well as fashion and sportswear: 3.86 euros
  • Premium shipping for products in all other categories: 4.86 euros
  • Same-Day (Evening Express): 9.74 euros
  • Shipping for articles without youth approval: 4.87 euros
  • Special shipping for high quality items: Free of charge
  • Standard delivery for large devices: free of charge for deliveries from Monday to Friday
  • Desired delivery time for large devices: Free of charge for deliveries from Monday to Friday, 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.

The Amazon Marketplace has a special status. Shipping costs can be incurred here for non-Prime and Prime customers alike.

Returns and exchanges

Your right of return or cancellation is 30 days at Amazon. There are also exceptions here at the Marketplace. Depending on the seller, you may only have 14 days to return the goods.

Tip: Always process the return via the Amazon website. For many products you will receive a return slip and can send the goods back free of charge.

As is usual in online trading, there is no general right to exchange goods for an identical product (e.g. clothes in a different size). For some goods you can select "replace" when returning. Most of the time, however, only a return is possible.

Financing purchases - these options exist

Many products such as large kitchen appliances, televisions or notebooks are not very cheap. Not everyone can afford these devices with a one-off payment. If you still want to fulfill a long-cherished wish or are dependent on a quick new acquisition, financing is an option in this case.

It is more difficult at Amazon in this regard than at other retailers. On the one hand, with the Amazon credit card, you have the option of financing expensive products with monthly payments. Here, however, there are high interest rates of almost 15 percent.

On the other hand, the mail order company offers a partial payment option for some products. Here you can pay for goods in five monthly payments without interest. However, the availability of the 5-month financing is very limited. Usually this is offered with Amazon's own products. Sometimes you can also find them at other retailers on the platform.

Secure your Amazon VISA card with a EUR 40 starting credit

If you secure the VISA credit card from Amazon, you can save on your first purchases. As a thank you, you will receive a credit of 40 euros. When buying with a credit card, you also collect bonus points from Amazon and participating partners, which you can redeem when making purchases in the Amazon online shop.

At 12 months free *

Prime customers receive two points for every full euro, non-Prime members one point. The VISA card is free in the first year and then costs 19.99 euros per year.

Amazon Smile

Amazon Smile is an initiative of the mail order company where you can do something good with your purchase. If you buy via Amazon Smile, the retailer supports a non-profit organization of your choice - at no additional cost for you. 0.5 percent of the purchase amount is passed on.
