In addition to sales at Amazon Book Stores, Amazon is also promoting Prime Day through Whole Foods Market for the first time. In particular, he points to the Echo Show, Amazon's video smart speaker, which regularly sells for $229.99 but is on sale now through Prime Day at $129.99.

Some brands will take advantage of Prime Day by launching new products.

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

In past years, Amazon's Prime Day has proven to be a revenue driver for many small and medium-sized businesses that take part in the event. Pacific, you'll need to be a Prime member to partake of the deals.


Meanwhile, Amazon recently announced that its annual Prime Day will begin in the afternoon on July 16 and run for 36 hours through July 17; six hours more than a year ago. On the other hand, the company should drive non-Prime members, who are shoppers of Whole Foods into becoming members of their Prime Service in the near term. "More than 100 million Prime members around the world, including India, will find this our best Prime Day celebration yet", he added.

All Prime deals will be clearly marked on the items with a blue sign underneath, which will indicate that these products are included in the event. If you are on free trial, your membership will auto-renew to the annual plan.

Now in its fourth year, the day-and-a-half digital shopping spree turned global pastime has become a frenzy of online customers eagerly snagging everything from coveted gadgets to some freaky merchandise.

Now, shoppers are being enticed to make some purchases at both Whole Foods and Amazon.com over the next few days.


Access to top global deals: For the first time, Prime members in India will have access to hundreds of top worldwide Prime Day deals.

While the Amazon Prime Day runs through until midnight of 17th July, the Virtual Experience Zones in the malls will be operational only until 8 PM on the 17th of July.
