Best and worst things to buy in July

Best and worst things to buy in July

If you can't wait until Amazon Prime Day 2018, here are some great deals live right now to whet your appetite.

In 2017, revenue from Amazon Prime Day rose 60% from the previous year, the e-commerce giant said.

Prime Day, which Amazon describes as an "epic day of our best deals", will see major reductions across most product categories on Amazon's marketplace, notably in electronics and homeware.

Amazon holds a flash sale of products once a year in the summer season, a historically slow point for sales. All deals exclusive to Prime Day will have a blue tag on them letting you know that they'll expire at the end of the 36-hour period.

"Members will discover all kinds of exclusive offers and deals", said Amazon. If you've been on the fence about signing up for Amazon's services, such as Amazon Music unlimited or kindle unlimited, look out for lead-up and Prime Day discounts. This allows you to utilize Amazon's Alexa voice assistant in new ways and access visual content via your voice commands. The Prime Day sale is nearly like any other major sale event you'd expect but with one major exception-it is only open to Amazon Prime members. Walk into any Whole Foods and you can get 10 percent off select items via the Whole Foods app. Amazon announced today (July 3) that Prime members will save an extra 10 percent off at Whole Foods on Prime Day proper.


Do you need a Prime membership to participate? If you aren't a subscriber already, you can choose to sign up for the 30-day trial free of charge before deciding to pay $12.99 monthly or $119 annually.

Now that you what to expect, time to put a strategy in place so you can seek out and snatch up the best deals before they disappear. That is by far the best deal in streaming.

So you're anxious you won't be able to spot a great deal from a dud.

Amazon's Prime Day promotions are often a good indicator of which way the company's many-headed borg is facing, and this year, one Amazon entity is screaming quite loudly: Twitch. Australia, Singapore, the Netherlands and Luxembourg will also host the event this year, joining previous participants the USA, U.K., Spain, Mexico, Japan, India, Italy, Germany, France, China, Canada, Belgium and Austria.

For example, Lightning Deals are promotions on specific items. But if you have family members hoping to get in on the bargains, you can add a household member to your plan under Amazon Household.
