Amazon Prime Day 2018: These early deals are available right now

04 July, 2018, 06:30 | Author: Emmett Rice
  • 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

Now that you what to expect, time to put a strategy in place so you can seek out and snatch up the best deals before they disappear. That's right. Beginning yesterday, Twitch Prime is giving away a free game to Twitch Prime members every day.

There are going to be a lot of discounts, some great, others not so much, to sift through on Prime Day. The sale will include thousands of one-day deals as well as the short-lived Lightning Deals.

Amazon has been building out its own brands in recent years, and is using Prime Day to highlight those collections. And at its more than a dozen Amazon Books stores, discounts will expand beyond devices.

Another major product category that gets the most attention is smartphones.

Amazon holds a flash sale of products once a year in the summer season, a historically slow point for sales. However, they can also sell out, so it's always best to act quickly on those deals. Amazon Prime Now, a benefit of Amazon Prime, offers ultra-fast delivery in under two hours and at no additional fee.

Amazon Prime does offer a lot of value, but it's not really meant for everyone.

So you're anxious you won't be able to spot a great deal from a dud.

While Prime Day officially kicks off on the 16th, Amazon has actually already launched a few Prime Day deals that are worth checking out.

Citizens of any country where Amazon offers Prime subscriptions will be able to take advantage of Prime Day online.

However, when you look beyond the Echo, laptop, and TV deals, you'll see Amazon is cooking up a different kind of deal for Prime Day - and it's one that I'm personally excited about the most. "This VR experience is open to all customers with preferential access to Prime members at select malls in Mumbai, Delhi NCR, Kolkata, Chennai and Bengaluru", Sahi added.

To help celebrate Amazon Prime Day 2018 (the corporate holiday that Hallmark wished they came up with), Twitch is giving away nearly a month's worth of games through their Twitch Prime service. That is, Singaporean customers "buy a lot" from Amazon's worldwide website and are "willing to wait and pay for the products to arrive".

For example, Lightning Deals are promotions on specific items. Whenever you're ready to make a purchase, Amazon will alert you to whatever the new price is.
