What is Amazon Prime Day?

Amazon Prime Day is the retail giant’s summer version of Black Friday, the difference being that the event is for Prime subscribers only. If you’re not a subscriber though, fear not: you can still take advantage of Amazon Prime Day 2018 by signing up for a free 30-day trial. You’re able to cancel the trial at any time before the end of the 30-day period, so you can easily opt out after Amazon Prime Day has finished, if you so wish.

Prime Day first launched in 2015, when Amazon offered a day of sales to mark two decades of ecommerce domination. It was an immediate success, and has quickly become one of the best shopping days of the year. In 2017 it was bigger and better than ever – and this year the event is already looking set to eclipse anything that’s gone before.

At 36 hours, this year's event will be the longest Prime Day the retailer has run so far – and the biggest, with Australia, Singapore and more countries all joining the party this year. Wondering if you can benefit from the best Amazon Prime deals? Read the full list of countries taking part in Amazon Prime Day 2018 on the official announcement from Amazon.
