AMAZONAmazon Prime Day 2018
Today, the online marketplace finally announced that it would be holding Prime Day on July 16. Prime Day kicks off at 12pm PT/3 pm ET, and then runs through July 17 for a total of 36 hours.
The Prime Day sale is nearly like any other major sale event you'd expect but with one major exception-it is only open to Amazon Prime members. Customers can also sign up for a free 30-day trial. In just three years, Prime Day catapulted past Black Friday and Cyber Monday as Amazon's busiest shopping day. Online furniture seller Wayfair introduced Way Day in April, becoming its biggest revenue day ever. This year, a total of 17 countries will celebrate Prime Day. Track your Prime Day orders with Alexa.
Another major product category that gets the most attention is smartphones.
"Prime members will be the first to shop, taste, listen and laugh with early access Prime Day Launches that will top everyone's wish list", Amazon said in its news release. But even if you miss it, Amazon tends to discount its hardware at least once a month. Make sure to do your homework beforehand so you don't end up overspending - some companies may increase prices in advance to make it seem like a better deal than it is. That does hold true for some products, but most good deals barely last a few hours (some last only a few minutes). Amazon did not explain why it's adding more hours to the day, but perhaps it has something to do with the fact that the company upped the price of a Prime membership from $99 to $119 a year. If you're already using an Amazon Echo device, chances are you're already a Prime subscriber.

Having just launched Prime in Australia, we are delighted that Australian members can now enjoy the unparalleled combination of shopping and entertainment benefits that Prime gives them. This is the easiest way to preview, track and shop those limited time Lightning Deals while at home or on-the-go with deal alerts on the Amazon App. Alternatively, you can watch Alexa-related videos on the Amazon website while logged in, or download the Amazon App. The deluge of deals can have you potentially buying some serious duds, but this can be avoided if you take a considered approach to your bargain hunting. Amazon Prime is a paid subscription service giving its users a number of enhanced services and delivery incentives. You might also actually need a product right now, so that will also help with the decision.
