Amazon's best Prime Day 2018 deals are yet to come, as the e-tailer will start the bonanza today at 3pm Eastern, but there is already enough evidence that the pricing during its 36-hour event will beat the Black Friday 2017 deals on average.
Amazon Prime Day 2018 begins in India from 12 pm on July 16.
While Amazon has only announced a few Prime Day 2018 deals in the USA with focus on Back to School, the giant retailer teases in India a hot Prime Day TV deal. The sale brings various discounts, deals and offers on various products, including phones, smart speakers and more. But Prime members can use them for free, with any amount of shopping.
Secondly, it is always good to have your list in place for the products that you want to buy in the sale. Some of the deals are expected to be time bound under the tag "Lightning deals", which means that you will have to get through the checkout window as soon as you can.
Another major benefit that Amazon offers its Prime members is free ad-free access to Prime Video and Prime Music.
Other products getting a decent price cut include the Echo Show at £99.99 (£100 off), Fire TV Stick w/Alexa Voice Remote at £24.99 (£15 off) and Echo Spot at £89.99 (£30 off). Last year's Prime Day saw the best price of the year on the fitness trackers and Deal News expects similar discounts this year. One of the biggest online sale event that will run for 36 hours and is touted to offer some of the best deals on a plethora of products. Buyers paying through SBI credit cards can avail 10 per cent discount on their phone purchases. Amazon also offers discounted same-day and morning delivery options to Prime members in select cities.
These deals include the option to grab four months of Amazon Music Unlimited for just 99p. Besides consumer products, Amazon.in is also releasing latest videos on Prime Video from July 10 to July 16. Download the Vodafone Play app from the iOS App Store or Google Play Store.
Making Prime Day last even longer "ratchets up the pressure on all of retail" to roll out heavy promotions "in hopes of attracting shoppers and dollars", said Charlie O'Shea, lead retail analyst at Moody's.
