Amazon is expanding Prime Day in 2018

A bigger Amazon Prime Day 2018 arrives July 16 with more deals, devices and longer hours

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 launched Prime in Australia last month, offering free 2-day shipping, access to Prime Video, Books, Twitch streaming and cheaper global shipping for $59/year or $4.99/month until the 31st of January 2019 when it jumps to $6.99/month - as well as getting a free 30-day trial to start you off. Here are all the details! However, all of the deals are exclusive to Amazon Prime members - which means you need to be a subscriber to see them.

Jeff Wilke, Amazon CEO Worldwide Consumer said: "Prime members will enjoy a day and a half of epic deals, with 36 hours to shop more than one million deals across the globe".

This year's Amazon Prime Day kicks off July 16 at 12PM PT (3PM ET) and will last through 12AM PT on July 17 (3AM ET on July 18). Amazon Prime is effectively Amazon's membership service.

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.

Personally, I'm more interested in seeing what Amazon may do with Whole Foods - a store renowned for not offering deals - than any sale it could offer online.

Heat advisory issued for today
Numerous major cities in the Midwest and Northeast - from Chicago to Washington, D.C. - began a heat wave on Friday . FOURTH OF JULY: We keep the hot temperatures for Tuesday , with highs in the mid-to-upper 90s and lots of sunshine.


For Canadians, Amazon says Prime members will find "thousands of deals from top brands", while announcing more customers have joined Prime in the past 12 months in Canada, than in any previous year. "We have added more selections in organic products, Japanese consumables and Korean beauty, just to name a few".

Kindle Unlimited and eBooks - Access to three months of unlimited reading for just $0.99. Buy your first Kindle book and get a $10 Prime Day credit valid towards eBooks, print books and Audible.

It comes once a year and is exclusively for members.

The shopping spectacular has also been a driver of Prime membership, which now stands at more than 100 million worldwide. Other deals include 30 percent off its Mama Bear diapers and baby products. Make sure to do your homework beforehand so you don't end up overspending - some companies may increase prices in advance to make it seem like a better deal than it is. "Members in Bengaluru, Delhi NCR, Mumbai and Hyderabad can enjoy ultra-fast delivery in two-hours on popular deals and launches on the Prime Now app".

If there is a particular product you are looking for, you should set up deal alerts on items and products you know you want so that you can snag the deal as soon as it is updated. The site lets you import all the items from your Amazon Wish List rather than entering them manually.
