It's official! Amazon Prime Day dates confirmed

Amazon Prime Day

Amazon Prime Day

The summer shopping event feels just as engraved in our brains as Black Friday, so it's always a shocker to remember that Prime Day has only been around since 2015. Unlike the other sale events, the Prime Day sale is only limited for Amazon Prime customers.

Amazon has said that Prime Day 2019 will offer millions of deals during the 48-hour event, and realistically that's going to be hard to keep up with. It will also be the "biggest Prime Day deals ever on Alexa-enabled devices" so we can expect bigger savings on the likes of Echo speakers, Fire tablets and the Fire Stick 4K streamer than we saw previous year. If you haven't tried Prime Music before, Amazon is offering Rs 200 as Amazon Pay balance for streaming their first song starting today. This is great for those who want to add some security to their home, and it works with Amazon's new in-garage delivery options, which will be a huge benefit so you can keep all your Prime Day packages safe as they're being delivered.

Last year's Prime Day included a live-streamed Ariana Grande concert. These products include new headphones, earphones, and budget smartphones. Both these services are complimentary for Prime subscribers.

We also have a custom Prime Day mailing list set up that will deliver the best tips, tricks, deals, and more right to your inbox as it happens.

Maura is having none of Tom's bad excuses in tonight's 'Love Island'
Maura Higgins has won herself a legion of fans after sticking up for herself on Sunday night's Love Island . Anton says: "He just repeated what we said", to which Maura replies: "Yes but he shouldn't have".

There will be over 1 million deals available worldwide, which is the same number Amazon offered past year.

The online retailer also says there will be some big surprises from some of the world's top talent to be announced.

If you haven't participated in Prime Day before, here's a rundown: It's like the summer version of Black Friday or Cyber Monday, except it's an Amazon-only holiday where the golden ticket is, obviously, an Amazon Prime account.

That of course foreshadows big price drops on Amazon Echo speakers, the Amazon Fire TV line, and Amazon Kindle and Fire Tablet devices. The sale will also include discounts on books, toys, and gaming consoles. All Prime members can get a 10% instant discount with the HDFC Cards during the 2-day Prime Day sale.
