Prime Day 2018: Amazon prepares for huge volume of orders

A $119-a-year Prime membership includes more than just free shipping these days. It is not yet known whether Amazon will offer a better deal on this model on Prime Day.

To take advantage of the discounts offered on Amazon Prime Day, you must be a Prime member and that costs money - £79 a year in the United Kingdom or $119 a year in the US.

The events include a performance by Ariana Grande in NY, which is hosted by Amazon Music, and a performance in Los Angeles by deadmau5, which is hosted by its gaming-streaming service, Twitch Prime. That will get you all the free games from Twitch that are available between now and Prime Day.

The intention here is likely to show the breadth of what Prime includes and to educate new customers about its benefits, hopefully encouraging them to fork out $119 for the annual membership.

The bolstered backend logistics will help the company when it launches its 36-hour-long global sale exclusively for its "Prime" members on July 16. Amazon recommends signing up for lightning deal alerts on the Amazon app.

Amazon is also offering teens ages 13 through 17 years old to acquire their own Amazon login under their parents account to shop independently.

While available at Rs 34,999 for 6GB and 64GB variant in India, the One Plus 6 will be available in the Amazon Prime Day 2018 sale at Rs 9,633 with the exchange, the Indian Express reported. If it's just for Prime Day, you can subscribe to a Rs 129 monthly package if not willing to pay for whole year.

Just like the United States and UK, there will be huge tons of lightning deals on the day too.

If you are a Prime member and spend $10 at the store between now and July 17, you'll get a $10 credit to use during Prime Day, according to CNN Money. Amazon Prime yearly subscription is now $119, with benefits including free and faster delivery times, access to Amazon's streaming services, and Prime-specific discounts.

Around a million deals will be up for grabs for subscribers of Amazon Prime.

Shop with SMEs: Prime members will get access to exclusive launches by small businesses such as brass idols by Two Moustaches, accessories by Pipa Bella, kids' toys by Toyshine and musical instruments by SG Musical.

Let's say you've been a Prime member in the past 12 months, so the free trial doesn't apply to you. You can find the full list here.
