Amazon Prime Day 2018 to Offer Exclusive Launches and Discounts in India

The internet has been buzzing for days with predictions about when Amazon Prime Day would land this year, and we've finally got the official date: July 16.

Tomorrow's special holiday in the United States may not be the reason for the Amazon Prime Day but it has always been a tradition most shoppers look forward to each year. Now, you'll save 20% when you shop this shelving unit that's flawless for the kitchen, your closet, the kids' play room - and beyond.

Amazon has made its Prime Day 2018 a reality.

Amazon Australia country manager Rocco Braeuniger said the annual sales event could give new Prime members another reason to pay for the service. Prime Day started in 2015 and has broken Amazon sale records every year since. To be honest, it's not much different than Black Friday or Cyber Monday.

Ahead of Amazon's 36-hour Prime Day sale, the online retailer is appealing to video game fans with a bumper pack of downloads for Twitch and Amazon Prime subscribers, from "The Bridge" and "Broken Age" to "Tyranny" and "Tacoma". Starting on July 16th at 3 PM ET, the hottest deals online will be available, letting smart shoppers save on games, electronics, and so much more!

Amazon has been building out its own brands in recent years, and is using Prime Day to highlight those collections.

You do need to be a Prime member in order to take advantage of Prime Now delivery, this limited-time promotion, and other Prime Day deals. For the first time, U.S. Prime members will also be able to celebrate Prime Day at their local Whole Foods Market.

Explore a rotating selection of popular magazines.

"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.

Aside from discounts, new Prime exclusive products will be also surfacing. But even if you miss it, Amazon tends to discount its hardware at least once a month.

If you have already figured out what you want, you could simply add the products in your Amazon account's wishlist.
