Amazon Prime Day Sale 2018: How You Can Get the Best Deals?
Amazon has organized its Prime Day sale for the last three years. Last year, the e-commerce giant presented its global sales event in India. After the 2017 Prime Day event, Amazon India claimed to have successfully recruited many customers from its core members, and the sale was a global success. This year, Amazon launches its Prime Day sale on July 16th. Last year's sale lasted 30 hours, while this year's Amazon Prime Day event will last 36 hours. The Prime Day Sale is almost like any other major sales event you expect, but with one major exception, it's only open to Amazon Prime members. You are also eligible if you are currently on a 30-day trial period.
You can expect offers on a large number of products on Amazon during the sale. These offers can be broadly divided into two main categories: offers that last a full day, then there are offers that are only available for a few hours, more commonly known as Lightning Deals. Crossing the entire sale can be a frustrating task, but we will help you with that. We will cover the best offers for sale, so be sure to log in to Gadgets360 once the sale goes live.
While Prime Day is a global event, Amazon India seems to be working very hard to make sure this year's sale is even bigger. Some of the vendors we talked to told us that the online retailer is pushing sellers to offer bigger discounts this year, promising a massive increase in sales. The company will promote the Prime Day sale in all of its marketing channels.
Amazon Prime Day Sale 2018: What to Expect?
The Prime Day Sale will begin at 4:00 pm on July 16 and continue until the next day. The sale will include thousands of one-day offers as well as the short-term Lightning Deals.
Amazon has already put up a huge page on its website, giving everyone an overview of its Prime Day event. The most obvious products that are on sale and worth buying are Amazon's products. These include Kindle e-readers, Fire Stick TV, Amazon Echo smart speakers, and even AmazonBasics products across various categories.
Smartphones are another important product category that attracts the most attention. Even though recently we have not seen any significant discounts on smartphones at sales like these, if you're looking to buy a new smartphone, it's better to wait for the Prime Day sale to at least see what's on offer. Most of the exclusive Amazon smartphones will be available at a reduced price.
However, many consumers complain that sales like these do not really offer good deals. This is true for some products, but most good deals last only a few hours (some last only a few minutes). Should I sign up for Amazon Prime just for this sale?
Amazon Prime offers a lot of value, but it's not really for everyone. If you do not buy more than a few products each month and are comfortable with the slow shipping, you are not an ideal user for Prime.
Premium membership offers free fast delivery options with no minimum market value, access to Prime Video and Prime Music, exclusive offers from time to time, and more. If you are already using an Amazon Echo device, it is likely that you are already a Premium subscriber.
The Amazon Prime subscription costs ₹ 999 in India for a full year and you can also subscribe to the ₹ 129 monthly plan if you do not want to use it for more than a few months - as we mentioned earlier, you can sign up for the first trial just to get access to Prime Day offers or even pay for a month and then cancel, if you wish. Airtel even offers free Premium Subscriptions to some customers, as does Vodafone to subscribers to its Red Postpaid plans.
How to find the best deals on Amazon Prime Day 2018?
If you already understand what you want, you can simply add the products to your Amazon account's wish list. Amazon's mobile apps typically send a push notification whenever the products in your wish list are associated with a Lightning contract. If this is not the case, you should start planning what you want to buy.
During the sale, Amazon is more likely to offer the lowest prices, but it still makes sense to make a simple price comparison in other leading markets. It only takes a few seconds and ensures you get a good deal.
Before leaving, always make sure you use bundled payment offers. Amazon will offer instant discounts on HDFC bank cards and for its, Amazon Pay wallet users as well. choose the one that suits you best.
On the day of the sale, we will review all offers to bring you the best available.
