Get an Amazon Prime account FREE for Amazon Prime Day - here’s how


Amazon has never shared its actual sales figures for Prime Day, but the company did disclose, during an April shareholder meeting, that it now has more than 100 million Prime members.

It's also offering discounts to Prime members who shop at Whole Foods, which Amazon acquired for more than $13 billion past year.

Amazon Prime Day is almost here: it starts at midday on Monday 16 July and runs until midnight on Tuesday 17 July, and we're expecting some excellent deals on TVs, laptops, kitchen appliances, vacuum cleaners, mattresses and much more. That will get you all the free games from Twitch that are available between now and Prime Day. EBay spent $555.9 million on USA advertising in 2017, 8 percent more than 2016, according to Ad Age's Datacenter, which also found that the company doubled its measured media spend to $102.2 million over the same period. In the US? You can now grab it for a very reasonable $59.90. Then, if you want to cancel your membership before you're charged for a second month, you can.

Amazon Prime Music will also be launching specially curated playlists in several Indian languages including Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Punjabi, Malayalam, Gujarati, Rajasthani, Bengali and two new languages - Assamese and Odia. Amazon says this year's edition of Prime Day, an annual blockbuster online sales event created in 2015 as a summertime version of Black Friday, will be bigger than ever, with more than one million deals worldwide. In the past, Echo Dots and items that work with Alexa have been as much as 40 percent off.

Amazon bought Whole Foods in 2017 for $13.7 billion, and has steadily been synergizing the brands.

Amazon said it will offer deals on everything customers need as they head back to school and off to college, from colored pencils to shoes.
