7 best Amazon Prime Day 2018 deals available right now

Bear in mind that those deals are not yet live, but will be on July 16. Prime Day will also feature select deals at all US Whole Foods Market stores. Some of the sellers we've spoken to told us that the online retailer is pushing sellers to offer bigger discounts this year, promising them a massive increase in sales.

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

"Alexa, what is Prime Day?".

Perhaps more important than that, Amazon announced last July that the 2017 Prime Day was the single biggest day for Prime sign-ups up to that point.

Another major product category that gets the most attention is smartphones. Members in the USA, U.K., Spain, Mexico, Japan, India, Italy, Germany, France, China, Canada, Belgium, Austria and - new this year - Australia, Singapore, Netherlands and Luxembourg, can shop deals across TVs, smart home, kitchen, grocery, toys, fashion, furniture, appliances and back-to-school supplies and even stock up on everyday essentials. It's a pretty neat deal, especially for the hardcore streamers out there.

Amazon is actually kicking the sale off early - from today, in fact.

Amazon has been building out its own brands in recent years, and is using Prime Day to highlight those collections. There will be so many great offers you may be overwhelmed. The new product launches around Prime Day will be from brands such as OnePlus, Nestlé, Marks & Spencer, Bosch, HP, Acer, Sennheiser, Seagate, Samsung, GAP, Asics and a few others. Smart speakers, Kindle tablets, and Fire TV streaming devices as well as smart home accessories will all see steep discounts. The company said it collected "tens of millions" in new Prime memberships.

What Are the Best Amazon Prime Day Deals to Expect? Alternatively, you can watch Alexa-related videos on the Amazon website while logged in, or download the Amazon App. The app lets you get "sneak peek" advance notice of deals and sign up for alerts. The deluge of deals can have you potentially buying some serious duds, but this can be avoided if you take a considered approach to your bargain hunting. Taking a page from rival Alibaba, which hosts its Singles Day shopping event in China, Amazon in 2015 created the shopping holiday in mid-summer, one of the slowest times of the year.
