Amazon announces Prime Day 2018: Brace yourselves for millions of deals!


Amazon's Prime Day deals are coming to the aisles of Whole Foods as the online retailer seeks to lure more people to its Prime membership after a recent price hike. It turns out the information was accurate, as Amazon just confirmed its monster shopping event.

Ahead of Prime Day itself, larger-than-life Amazon Smile boxes will make their way across land and sea for delivery to major cities around the world including NY, L.A., Tokyo, Milan and London, promising to "unbox" exclusive entertainment experiences for Prime members and the general public. Prime Day will extend to Amazon's physical stores, with sales at Whole Foods and Amazon Books locations in the US.

You'll need to be a Prime member to take advantage of this deal and all the other deals due to land on Prime Day itself.

Amazon's today announced that its annual online shopping event Prime Day will start this year on July 16 at 12pm PT/3pm ET and will run through July 17. Amazon even let you start with a 30-day free trial and offer flexible payment plans after that; £7.99 on a monthly basis (with a flexible cancellation policy) or £79.99 upfront annual fee.

Australia, Singapore, Netherlands and Luxembourg will join the other countries hosting Prime Day this year, which includes the U.S., U.K., Spain, Mexico, Japan, India, Italy, Germany, France, China, Canada, Belgium and Austria.
