Amazon announces Prime Day 2018 with more than one million deals

Amazon’s Prime Day a sales day for Prime members began in 2015 starting as a typical 24-hour day. It expanded to 30 hours last year and will be 36 hours long this year

Amazon Prime comes with all sorts of perks and goodies to try and make your £79 a year subscription fee some worthwhile, but really it's just a tactic to try and trick you into spending more money.

If this year's event is similar to previous Prime Days, you can expect to see deals going live throughout the day with some only available for a limited time.

Amazon India saw over a million products being sold during the Prime Day past year, which was the first such event the global company had held in the country after launching Prime in 2016. Amazon Prime Day deals are only available to users with an Amazon Prime account.

Finally, Amazon will be hosting events in the run up to Prime Day with London's "Unbox Prime" event taking place on 15th July.

Amazon also plans to offer delivery in up to 2 hours through its Prime Now app in four cities during the Prime Day sale across categories like smartphones and electronics. It's free for Prime and non-Prime members alike, but tickets will be on a first-come first-served basis. Customers can enter by asking the company's voice assistant questions about Prime Day, watching Alexa-related videos or downloading the Amazon app.

"More than 100 million Prime members around the world, including India, will find this our best Prime Day celebration yet".

"Prime members will enjoy a day (and a half) of our best deals, with 36 hours to shop more than one million deals worldwide", said Jeff Wilke, Amazon CEO Worldwide Consumer, in a news release.
