Other events are taking place in London, Tokyo, and Milan over the weekend, in advance of Prime Day on Monday, July 16.

Building on the success of new product launches past year, Amazon is launching the second edition of its highly anticipated Prime Day event this month. That way you'll be alerted through the Amazon app when that deal is about to go live on Prime Day. Prime members will also be able to shop for new handicraft products such as Kalamkari Ikat, Pochampally & Banarasi Sarees, Ajrakh hand-block printed apparels and even tribal paintings and jewelry. A total of 17 countries now have access to Prime Day. But if you're not a subscriber, don't worry, you can still take advantage of Prime Day prices by signing up for a temporary membership for free! If it's just for Prime Day, you can subscribe to a Rs 129 monthly package if not willing to pay for whole year.

This year, for the first time, Amazon is fully incorporating Whole Foods Market stores into its Prime Day plans. On Prime Day, the company will launch a two-hour express delivery service on the back of "I Have Space" warehouses.

Amazon is going all out in July to drum up excitement for Prime Day, its annual sales event that sees tons of products across all categories get temporary price drops.

Once Prime Day gets properly started on July 16th, we'll be sure to let you know the best deals - and the geekiest ones - that we spot.

Yes and no. While Prime is for Prime customers, there will be other deals on the day that are open to everyone - it's just that with lightning deals, which tend to have limited stock, the Prime users get to see them before anybody else. Search for the items you're interested in and sign up for the "watching list".

How do I get the best Prime Day 2018 deals?

Until then, here's everything you need to know about the day to optimize your purchasing time. In reality, it's more like Prime week, as many "deals of the day" have already been trickling out, specifically electronics like Wi-Fi Light Switches and Bluetooth speakers.
