Amazon Prime Day 2018 Kicks Off July 16, Deals Already Happening

Amazon Prime Day starts at noon on Monday July 16 Amazon Prime Day starts at noon on Monday July 16

The annual shopping event will be longer than years past, lasting 36 hours.

Members in the United Kingdom can shop deals across TVs, smart home, kitchen, grocery, toys, furniture, fashion, appliances and more.

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

Putting the Prime Day stamp on Whole Foods is Amazon's latest step to integrate the grocery chain since buying it past year for $13.7 billion.

Sales will kick off on July 16th at 12PM PDT/3PM EDT and run through July 17th, this time with sales lasting 36 hours, up from 30 in 2017.

Prime members in the United States will be able to dave an additional 10% at their local Whole Foods Markets by downloading the Whole Foods Market app and scanning the Prime Code.

It now costs $4.99 to join Amazon Prime in Australia which is well below the asking price in most other markets. It's a subscription programme where you pay more to get more. If this is your first Prime Day, it's a special day for members of Amazon Prime to receive exclusive site-wide deals on anything from TVs to Alexa-powered products and everything in between.


Other additions to Prime Day 2018 include 50% more Spotlight Deals, the ability to track offers on the Amazon App and the option to search for deals based on popular interests and by asking Alexa.

Amazon Prime Day may not be for a couple of weeks but the shopping behemoth has wasted no time in dishing out some discounts.

Coinciding with its official unveiling of the date for Amazon Prime Day today, Amazon released a preview of what to expect in terms of deals, with a sale price on its Echo Show smart speaker. Prime members will exclusively be able to buy brand new products from some of the biggest brands until 15 August, meaning they'll get their hands on the latest and greatest before anyone else.

These could be the "home security devices" that will be newly on sale this year during Prime Day, alongside the Echo Show.

You can also get a "sneak peak" at deals before they go live in order to maximize the way you shop.

To do this, set up the Amazon Shopping app on your phone, either through the App Store or Google Play Store.

Amazon also has lightning deals that are quick-fire short-term discounts on certain items. You can find instructions on how to link your Amazon Prime account to Twitch via this website. Unsurprisingly, all of the early deals are on Amazon products. You can click the "Watch this Deal" button on any deal that's more than 10 minutes away to add it to your "Watching" list.
