Amazon Prime Day 2018 (July 16, 2018)

Amazon Prime Day made an amazing comeback in 2016 and 2017 after its mediocre start in 2015 where it offered a plethora of awesome deals. It is basically a day organized by Amazon offering deals and discounts similar to those offered on Black Friday by retailers. Lightning deals should be at least 20% off, should be on products which have an average of at least three stars, and should have enough stock to last six hours.

This year, Amazon Prime Day is scheduled to take place on Monday, July 16, 2018, starting at 12 p.m. PT and will continue till the end of Tuesday, July 17. The day will last for 36 hours, and Amazon will also offer additional discounts and offers in the same week under the name “Prime Day Week.” However, you cannot avail these offers if you do not have a subscription to Amazon Prime. You can, of course, sign up for the month free trial of Amazon Prime to avail these offers but remember to cancel your subscription before the yearly-subscription fee is charged.
