It is mid of July, and Amazon is all set to roll out the Amazon Prime Day Deals for you. Exclusive Amazon Prime Day Deals and discounts are on your way with the Amazon Prime Day 2018 approaching. It has been only three years since Amazon introduced the Amazon Prime Day on its platform, yet it is one of the trendiest shopping fests on the internet.
What is Amazon Prime Day 2018?
It all started three years back in 2015 and is regarded as the equivalent to the Cyber Monday and the Black Friday sales. Amazon offered cracking deals for its prime members as a mark of celebration of its 20th birthday in 2015.
Amazon Prime Day 2018 Deals and offers expect to receive a massive response from the customers. Last year’s Amazon Prime Day stats showed a 50% surge than the previous year ― around ten millions of Prime consumers shopped on the Amazon prime Day in 2017, including a record number of new signups.
In the 2017 Prime Day, Amazon offered discounts on a wide range of merchandises from TVs, home appliances, other electronic items, to Amazon’s very own Amazon Fire Tablets, Amazon Fire TV, and the Amazon Echo.
To make it more incredible, Amazon extended the Amazon Prime Day discount period by 6 hours making it a 30-hour shopping window.
Amazon’s CEO Jeff Bezos later remarked:
“In 2017 Amazon shipped more than five billion items with Prime worldwide, and more new members joined Prime than in any previous year – both worldwide and in the U.S. Members in the US now receive unlimited free two-day shipping on over 100 million different items,”
As per reports, the Echo Dot was the most purchased product from Amazon on the Prime Day 2017. Other than the Echo Dot, the 23andMe DNA Test Kit and the InstantPot DUO80 7-in-1 Programmable Pressure Cooker registered record sales on the Prime Day 2017 in the US.
Before adding the items to your shopping cart, do a little price review with other similar deals. Watch out for such deals on the Amazon app and get smarter with early notifications from Amazon. The only pre-requisite to unlock such huge offers and benefits on the Amazon Prime Day is you should be a registered Amazon prime member.
When is the Amazon Prime Day 2018 expected this year?
Amazon has not yet made any official declaration regarding the date of Amazon Prime Day 2018. Keeping in mind the trend of the last two years, it is highly expected that the Amazon Prime Day 2018 sale will be around 16th of July. Amazon will probably announce the dates by the end of this month.
Amazon rolled out Amazon Prime Day Deals on July 10 last year, while in 2016 the Amazon prime day was on July 12. Do keep a watch as a few incredible deals before the Amazon Prime Day 2018 were on offer last year since around July 26th.
For instance last year, the price of the 1st generation Echo was reduced to around $79 from its original price of $129. The trends hint toward another super Echo deal by Amazon by the end of July this year.
The shopping extravaganza of 2017 lasted for 30 hours and started the night before the Amazon Prime Day.
Best Amazon Prime Day Deals, How to get them:
Amazon offered the Echo Dot at $34.9 last year on the Amazon Prime Day Deals, which also ended up being the most popular purchase among any category on Amazon globally.
The 4K Ultra Smart 55-inch LED Amazon Fire TV was the best-selling deals in the category of TVs, selling a record number of units in about 4 hours.
After the grand success of Prime Day 2017, Greg Greeley, Vice President, Amazon Prime added, “To those customers who tried Prime for the first time and our long-time members, thank you for a great Prime Day,”
“Our teams around the world will keep working to add more and more to your membership, so Prime continues to make your life better every day. We are already looking forward to our Prime Day celebration next year.”
Amazon is expected to offer grand discounts and Alexa-exclusive deals on the Echo Spot, Echo Dot and the 2nd generation Echo on the Amazon Prime Day 2018 too. Other than the Alexa deals, you may save a lot on groceries with amazing Whole Foods deals.
Keep an eye on the lightning deals that last for an hour or two on the Amazon’s site on the Prime Day.
A little recap from the US Amazon Prime Day 2017:
- Prime members from across 13 countries participated in the prime shopping festival.

A Prime customer from Philadelphia said,
“After some browsing, I saw that the Fire HD 8 Tablet was on sale for $49.99. Having the newest version with Alexa capabilities, it will be perfect as I plan for my own wedding. I’m an event planner and also have three other weddings from the end of August until December. That is a lot of things to remember. The Fire Tablet can now be with me on commutes and at the airport and maybe I will start to read for fun again.”
Another Prime member from Rhode Island added, “I could hardly believe the savings! Amazon proves time and time again that its reliability and product pricing simply cannot be beaten. I am a very proud Prime member and cardholder and I cannot imagine my life without Amazon.”
