Amazon deals and prices slashed as Prime Day 2017 revealed

While there are still bound to be some duds among the hundreds of thousands of deals this year, Amazon is emphasizing that this year's sale will have great TV deals, which is something all customers love and traditional Black Friday sales are known for.

Of course, none of this happens without a Prime membership.

Since then, Amazon's base of Prime members has only grown in size, which may make it a bit harder to find new shoppers to bring into the fold.

If you're not one of the 54 million Americans who, according to a recent report, already have Amazon Prime, you can take advantage of a free 30-day trial.

Use the Watch this Deal button on upcoming deals to make sure you don't miss them. The reality is however that it's tying up your capital and in the months you're sitting on the stock your money could be churned over multiple times making many times more profit than what you may hope to get by holding out and sitting on your stock.

Walmart (WMT), which recently unveiled similar service to Prime called ShippingPass.com, announced on Monday that it would offer free shipping and discounts on selected merchandise all week.

$10 for the first time you stream an Amazon Video movie on your TV. In Quebec, there's no trial and the $79 subscription lasts 13 months. Some users in certain areas are also eligible for same-day delivery on certain products. The deals are open only to members of Amazon's $99-a-year Prime loyalty program, so Amazon typically gets more sign-ups, too.

The retailer has kept coy on what specific products will be discounted, but has said that it will organise the deals by theme (e.g. pet lovers, tecchies) in response to criticism around the "jumble sale"-like nature of the event". This is the default option for Prime members and is only available in eligible postcodes.




Prime Day will include TV deals with a variety of brands, including the all new Element 4K Ultra HD Smart LED TV - Amazon Fire TV Edition.

The main Prime Day starts at midnight, and new products come out every hour. What Deals Are Available?

Prime members get exclusive access to Prime Now, Amazon's delivery service that operates seven days a week from early morning to late evening.

If the sale price was $100, for example, you'd see that, while it's not the best price ever, it would still be the best price for that keyboard in a while. Download the free Amazon App. It has unlimited skips and offline playback for those who want to take it on the go and it links up with most devices.

Amazon Music Unlimited is Amazon's answer to Spotify, Apple Music, and Tidal. Those will cost you a bit more.

As for Prime Day itself, the start time depends on the devices you have.

The company is offering up to 40 percent off book titles with a Kindle Unlimited subscription.
