A primer to save on Amazon Prime Day

This may come in handy as Amazon is readying to celebrate a 36-hour-long global sale for Prime members only on, starting July 16.

The e-commerce giant claims that they managed to sign up huge number of customers to its Prime services during the 30-hours long sale previous year, and is said to an overall success.

TechRadar has a history of being the ultimate destination to spot the best deals during the sale globally.

Along with the extra six hours, Amazon Prime Day is extending to four new countries this year: Australia, Singapore, the Netherlands and Luxembourg. Its biggest rival, Flipkart, according to sources, has around 41 warehouses.

Users under a 30-day trial are can also avail the offers during the sale.

It's undeniable that Prime membership does have its benefits, but it might not be for everyone.

Kicking off at 3 p.m. ET, Highsnobiety will be bringing you all the best from Amazon on the day, so be sure to check in on our Shopping vertical for regular updates as and when we see a deal that we think you'll like.

But it's not useful if you don't shop offline very often or have a preferred online video/music streaming service already. If it's just for Prime Day, you can subscribe to a Rs 129 monthly package if not willing to pay for whole year.

What to expect from Prime Day 2018?

Stay tuned to Highsnobiety's Prime Day coverage next week to make the most of all the savings.

Amazon has teased a bunch of offers and announcements ahead of the sale. Alongside the new launches, there would also be plenty of deals on mobiles, electronics, appliances, fashion and everyday essentials "at the lowest prices of the year".

The site will offer two kinds of deals - spotlight and lightning. As usual, Prime Day sales items will include products from private labels, SMBs and big brands alike. It's an ingenious way to get existing Prime members to search for deals, but more importantly, it gets non-Prime members curious about the offerings. Amazon Prime yearly subscription is now $119, with benefits including free and faster delivery times, access to Amazon's streaming services, and Prime-specific discounts. From an 80-minute charge you can get up to 10 minutes of flying time, and the main unit packs down to a portable 122x94x57mm. New members will then be charged £7.99 per month once the trial period expires.
