But, fret not. You can always take out a free 30 day Amazon Prime trial and have it conveniently overlap with Amazon Prime Day. Prime Day will run until midnight on the 17th, making it the longest Prime "Day" ever at 36 hours.

"It's a natural evolution for Amazon to start offering more Alexa-exclusive specials", says Greene of InfoScout, noting that the company's data shows that more of these devices are now in homes and playing a larger role in placing orders. Amazon promises an additional 10 percent off hundreds of sale items at Whole Foods and deeper discounts on some popular products.

Amazon has also started sale on some of its own products.

Amazon said sales from its Prime Day event a year ago surpassed Black Friday and Cyber Monday, growing by more than 60 percent from 2016.

When asked if Prime Day is a means for Amazon to amass more paying members, Mr Low said that more users sign up to become Amazon Prime members on Prime Day than any other day.

While Prime Day is still a couple of weeks away, Amazon has kicked things off with some early deals, available from its Prime Day Hub. Leaks claimed Prime Day was arriving on 16th July, and that's just been confirmed by Amazon. Amazon Prime has over 100 million subscribers worldwide.


If you're shopping for Amazon hardware like an Echo Dot or an Echo Show, Prime Day is indeed an excellent time to make a purchase. This will be the fourth time that Amazon has held such an event, and this time around it will last a full day and half, giving Prime members plenty of time to sift through bargains. Members will also receive exclusive in-game loot for Warframe and PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds.

Prime Day 2018 will offer more than 1 million deals, and also include in-person discounts at Whole Foods, Amazon said.

Prime has more than 100 million members. You can find instructions on how to link your Amazon Prime account to Twitch via this website. Prime has members from 400 towns and cities across India.

What do you hope to score out of Prime Day? If you have the money to spend, you might as well score some great deals and stimulate the economy, right?

If there is a particular product you are looking for, you should set up deal alerts on items and products you know you want so that you can snag the deal as soon as it is updated.

Amazon is adding more territories to the list as well.
