This year, Amazon is holding its Prime Day sale starting July 16.

Amazon said sales from its Prime Day event previous year surpassed Black Friday and Cyber Monday, growing by more than 60 percent from 2016.

This affordable backpack - now offered at 20% off - comes in seven stylish colors so that you can pick a pack to suit your style.

What do you hope to score out of Prime Day? The event will run from midday on July 16 until midnight the following day.

Last year, the best-selling product on Prime Day in the United Kingdom was the Oral B Smart Series electric toothbrush.

Ladies and gentlemen, Prime Day 2018 is official... and it's more than a day.

Deals will be changed out daily from now through Prime Day.

"Alexa, what is Prime Day?". Throughout the day, the company will be offering Lightning Deals that will come with discounted prices for a limited period of time.

Amazon's flagship event has got bigger this time. It had more sign-ups during 2017's event than any other day in the company's history, Amazon said at the time, without providing specific numbers.

Another major product category that gets the most attention is smartphones.

Members already get year-round discounts at Whole Foods stores. However, they can also sell out, so it's always best to act quickly on those deals. That does hold true for some products, but most good deals barely last a few hours (some last only a few minutes).

Amazon Prime gives shoppers faster delivery and cheaper offers regularly in exchange for an annual subscription fee.

Amazon has announced Prime Day 2018, which it is calling "an epic day and a half of our best deals". Past year it was the largest sales day for Amazon ever. Airtel even offers Prime Membership free to some customers. The Echo Dot was the most popular item among Prime members during last year's Prime Day. You'll see discounts on brands like Under Armour, Adidas, and Camelback, according to an Amazon press release. The various Amazon Brands are running deals today as well, including AmazonBasics and various home and clothing brands. If not, you should start planning ahead about what you want to buy.

Mr Low also said that Amazon's entry into Singapore has had a business impact on several local SMEs (small and medium enterprises).
