  • Amazon announces Prime Day 2018 Brace yourselves for millions of deals

According to Amazon, in 2017, over 40 million items were ordered worldwide on Prime Day.

Amazon has been organising its Prime Day sale for the last three years. "This year, Prime Day will feature double the deals on Amazon devices-and the biggest deals yet on Alexa-enabled products like Echo, Fire TV and Fire tablets, in addition to new categories from home security to Echo devices with screens". "We are also bringing worldwide deals to India across fashion, electronics and media that's being offered from global sellers to India". Subscribers also receive free shipping on many items and access to digital content such as music, video, gaming and photo storage. Deals Start Now Every day leading up to Prime Day, members will discover all kinds of exclusive offers and deals.

Amazon Prime is £5.99 a month, or £79 a year for the whole membership.

Prime Day started in 2015 to mark Amazon's 20-year anniversary but has quickly turned into one of the biggest days of the year for the online retailer.

Meanwhile, Amazon's virtual assistant app Alexa could once again be on hand to help bargain hunters after handing out cryptic responses and Easter eggs on deals during last year's sale.

Prime Day has been a hit for Amazon.




With Twitch Prime included as part of a $9.99 USD Amazon Prime subscription, the service has been establishing itself as a rival to the Humble Monthly, Xbox's Game Pass and Games With Gold, and PlayStation Plus. 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.

Audible - Eligible Prime members can get their first three months at more than 65 percent off for $4.95 a month. Amazon said it signed up more new Prime members previous year on Prime Day than any other single day in company history.

From my experience, many Prime Day deals aren't necessarily "deals".

Watch A Deal - The Amazon App ensures you never miss a deal.

Amazon's own version of Black Friday will be on 16 July, so here's a roundup of everything you need to know before the shopping frenzy begins. There are also some classics in there, like Metal Slug 3, and Broken Age, offering you a good sweep of both genres and eras.

On Prime Day, we'll be posting up the best deals we can find for you, so prepare your method of payment for the festivities.
