Deals you can expect on Amazon Prime Day

Deals you can expect on Amazon Prime Day

The first Prime Day drew mixed reviews - there were lots of deals, but some customers found them tough to sift through and were frustrated when more desirable offers sold out fast. In France, customers who stream a video on Prime receive a Euro 5 voucher, to spend from any purchase totaling Euro 25 on Amazon. You need to head to this Amazon sale to check out the sale. The third annual Prime Day will be Tuesday, July 11, 2017, and Amazon offers literally hundreds of thousands of deals exclusively to Prime members. In my house, Amazon Prime isn't important one day of the year, it's a service we access weekly and sometimes daily. For example, the popularity of Amazon's digital home assistant Alexa and its related hardware like the Echo give members another way to take advantage of benefits like streaming music and free shipping. On the other hand, the Great Online Shopping Festival (GOSF), which was hailed as the Black Friday of India while it lasted, had only reached 100K to 1 million searches in 2015, its a year ago in India. Within 3-4 days (in time for Prime Day), you'll get an email confirming that your credit has been applied. Use this free 30-day trial and activate it today. In addition to being 30 hours of insane deals and exclusive launches, Amazon Prime Day also aims to raise the bar of expectations of an online shopper when it comes to delivery.

If you want to get a head start on your Prime planning, these trends are worth keeping an eye on. Plug in all pertinent information in advance, including billing/shipping address and payment options.

So make sure you're signed up for Prime before the 10.

Prime Day will have great bargains that last all day, plus lightning deals - and like the name implies, those last for a limited time. Will it become 1-day or even hours delivery? I will have them for you in advance. Ebates will also be promoting dozens of competing retailers with double cash back throughout the week.

The golden ticket is, of course, a $99 Amazon Prime account. "While Amazon is the star on Prime Day, competitors like Walmart, eBay, and Best Buy are likely to have strong sales themselves", says Jones. "Quarterly growth measured as a percentage continues to slow down, which makes sense as the base of Prime members grew and penetration of the Amazon US customer base continues".
