Your Super-Quick Guide To Amazon Prime Day

EBay is offering more than 100 deals priced at $119-the same price of an annual membership for Amazon Prime-and touting the fact that its products don't require a membership.

The events include a performance by Ariana Grande in NY, which is hosted by Amazon Music, and a performance in Los Angeles by deadmau5, which is hosted by its gaming-streaming service, Twitch Prime.

Besides these, there are some other smartphones too that are going to be available during the Amazon prime day sale.

Last year, Prime Day deals were available to those in the U.S., UK, Spain, Mexico, Japan, India, Italy, Germany, France, China, Canada, Belgium, and Austria. A total of 17 countries now have access to Prime Day. As we mentioned in our Amazon Prime review, we think Prime is an absolute bargain anyway so at the discounted price it's hard not to strongly recommend signing up.

With an additional six hours for consumers around the world to be shopping, Prime Day is poised to smash its own personal record.


This year, for the first time, Amazon is fully incorporating Whole Foods Market stores into its Prime Day plans.

Amazon Prime members have special reason to shop at Whole Foods this week: When you spend $10 or more at Whole Foods from July 11 to 17, you'll get a free $10 credit that can be used at Amazon during the Amazon Prime Day sales event coming up. Then, if you want to cancel your membership before you're charged for a second month, you can.

There will be plenty of discounted seasonal items, including organic strawberries, boneless chicken breasts and more at Whole Foods stores.

Now, shoppers are being enticed to make some purchases at both Whole Foods and Amazon.com over the next few days. Search for the items you're interested in and sign up for the "watching list". 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.

Let's say you've been a Prime member in the past 12 months, so the free trial doesn't apply to you. There's a good chance that spammers and scammers will latch on to Prime Day much as they have with Black Friday and Cyber Monday, so be wary of unsolicited emails or links to deals on social media no matter how legitimate they look: anything asking for card details or login details is a scam.
