In a press release announcing Prime Day 2018, Amazon is claiming it will be the biggest shopping event ever held.
100 million Prime subscribers around the world will have exclusive access to over one million deals across almost all categories, including apparel & personal accessories, home & garden, or electronics.
Among the deepest deals, you will see the ones on voice-controlled devices: “Prime members will enjoy the biggest deals yet on Alexa-enabled products, including Echo, Fire TV, and Fire tablets this Prime Day.”
The official Prime Day 2018 shop is a great way to spot highlighted deals, but on a single page, you can’t put all exciting deals.
That’s why we are putting together a list of all current deals available exclusively for Prime members. These deals are addressed to users or potential users of Amazon’s devices and services: Kindle e-readers, Fire tablets, Echo speakers, or Kindle Unlimited and Audible subscriptions.
The last part of this overview lists all currently active deals that are available for all Amazon customers, not only Prime members. Sometimes, these regular offers, naming only the Kindle Unlimited deal, are more attractive than what you can find in Prime Day 2018 directory.
