  • Amazon Prime Day 2018 sale to start from July 16, here are deals on OnePlus 6, Vivo V9 and others

Members of Amazon Prime, the $119-per-year subscription program that includes free two-day shipping on most Amazon purchases, now get 10% off Whole Foods' items that are already on sale, plus free two-hour grocery delivery in select areas. That will get you all the free games from Twitch that are available between now and Prime Day. Now, Amazon has come up with a new wing to fulfil even more advanced logistics requirements of its customers.

Prime Day has become one of the most important sales days of the year for Amazon- and this year, it wants to milk every last bit of it.

Access to top global deals: For the first time, Prime members in India will have access to hundreds of top worldwide Prime Day deals.

Kicking off at 3 p.m. ET, Highsnobiety will be bringing you all the best from Amazon on the day, so be sure to check in on our Shopping vertical for regular updates as and when we see a deal that we think you'll like.

You can get three months of Kindle Unlimited for $1, when it usually costs $10. Alongside the new launches, there would also be plenty of deals on mobiles, electronics, appliances, fashion and everyday essentials "at the lowest prices of the year".

To get the special $10 credit for use on Amazon Prime Day 2018, you must be signed up as an Amazon Prime member.


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

Shop with SMEs: Prime members will get access to exclusive launches by small businesses such as brass idols by Two Moustaches, accessories by Pipa Bella, kids' toys by Toyshine and musical instruments by SG Musical. Amazon India has announced that the Prime Day will begin at 12 noon on 16 July 2018. Search for the items you're interested in and sign up for the "watching list".

For the avid reader out there, Prime Day will be the best day to get an e-reader, with the price getting cut by a third.

Until then, here's everything you need to know about the day to optimize your purchasing time.

For those Alexa fans who like telling the AI interface to turn your lights on, play music and more, the Echo Show is now $100 off through Prime Day.
