You can get ahead of the pack with a sneak peek of Prime Day 2018 deals hidden in the Amazon shopping app.
Amazon has added back-to-school and off-to-college deals for Prime Day, after more than one-third of back-to-school and off-to-college shoppers purchased school items on Amazon.com during Prime Day 2017. If you're already buying at least $2,400 per year from Amazon and Whole Foods combined, this is an easy way to have your credit card benefits pay for your Prime membership. The deals are for Prime members only, and if you're considering a membership keep in mind that the annual fee recently increased to $119 a year.
Things get started on Monday, July 16 at noon PT, running through July 17. Research shows these categories offer the best discounts on Prime Day: Toys, some tech, TVs and Amazon's own family of products - the Alexa, Echo, and Kindle were up to half off past year.
Daniel Ives believes that this strategy would surely allow Amazon to go on and become established further into the daily lifestyle of consumers and reach out to more customers with dual services on a worldwide basis.
That means that non-Prime customers can simply sign up and also be eligible for those offers. For example, an extra 15% discount on diaper subscriptions and much more discounts / recommendations for Amazon Prime subscribers. You'll get 30 days free (if you're a student, you get 6 months), and then it's $119/year (or $59/year for students).
When you cancel a paid Prime membership you may automatically receive a refund. Also, make sure the account has accurate personal information and current payment information. This Opal Nugget Ice Maker ($400, down from $500, on Monday, July 16) can be controlled via app, so you can have piles of flawless ice ready for cocktail-chilling the minute you get home.
