The banner prematurely published on Amazon's United Kingdom store on 21 June revealed that Amazon Prime Day 2018 will kick off at midday on 16 July, and will run for 36 hours until midnight on 17 July. If their deal meets stock and pricing criteria, it may be featured by Amazon. The company now offers, a curated box of two or four children's books available for Prime members for $22.99. The discounts offered are only offered to Prime customers, and so Amazon typically promotes the Prime membership as much as possible prior to Prime Day - at a lower price. If you're not one already, you can sign up for a 30-day free trial membership, or you can pay £79 for an 12 month membership. That is true. Like Black Friday though, you need a plan.
The move comes after Amazon initially launched the trial of Prime Wardrobe in June previous year. This could be general ("I want a good TV at a great price") or more specific ("I really hope the Instant Pot will be on sale"), but it'll be extra helpful when you're looking for offers you actually care about in a sea of discounts and lightning deals.
