Amazon Prime Day is happening July 16th

USA e-commerce company Amazon's annual shopping event Prime Day will be available to Singaporeans for the first time ever. You'll also want to make sure you're signed up for our Prime Day newsletter to have all the latest news, leaked deals, and more delivered right to your inbox.

This year, Prime Day will feature double the deals on Amazon devices, with the biggest deals on Alexa-enabled products like Echo, Fire TV and Fire tablets, home security and Echo devices with screens.

Not content with the shopping extravaganza held annually on Black Friday, Amazon has taken to holding its own little promotion in recent years, imaginatively called Prime Day.

"Prime members in India can enjoy over 200 exclusive product launches, thousands of deals at the lowest prices of the year and blockbuster entertainment launches on Prime Video and Amazon Prime Music", said Amit Agarwal, SVP & Country Manager, Amazon India.

So, to help you with that and give you some tips on how to find the best Amazon Prime Day 2018 deals, we've compiled the following guide. Amazon disclosed for the first time this year that it had more than 100 million paid Prime members worldwide. This initiative came mostly to a head in 2017 with two major launches: the aforementioned Twitch Prime, which lets Amazon Prime subscribers enjoy some cosmetic and quality-of-life upgrades while watching other people play video games, and the Twitch desktop client, which includes a Steam-like digital-game interface. The Echo Show receives a $100 discount. All hands-free-just ask. See the Echo Show sale at HERE.

Prime members who haven't yet tried Amazon Music Unlimited can get four months of the premium, on-demand service with access to tens of millions of songs and hands-free listening, for just $0.99. Amazon's mobile apps normally send a push notification whenever products in your wishlist go on a Lightning Deal.

Kindle Unlimited and eBooks - Access to three months of unlimited reading for just $0.99.

It comes once a year and is exclusively for members.

Finally, don't forget to also keep an eye on this page where we'll be updating with the best deals as they become available. You'll see discounts on brands like Under Armour, Adidas, and Camelback, according to an Amazon press release.

The offer is valid on orders of $10.01 or more, and the second $10 discount expires at 11:59 p.m. on July 31. But when it comes to shopping for myself, I plan to sit out Prime Day this year.
