Amazon Prime Day, now in its fifth year, was launched to drive subscriptions to Amazon Prime, but now more than half of all Amazon's sales are made to Prime subscribers and subscriber growth has dipped to just 11% annually.
Retail observers are anxiously awaiting Prime Day (July 15-16) to get a better sense of how strong Amazon is right now.
Amazon is offering cashback of Rs 500 on purchase of the annual Prime membership at Rs 999 for people under the age group of 18-24 years. Again, only viewable for Prime members. While there are no specifics deals being advertised, Target says deals will be on top national and exclusive brands from home and clothing to kitchen appliances and more.
If you love a bargain, get your mouse and smartphone ready. The service costs $14.99/month (this is in addition to your Prime membership fee) and lets you shop groceries and everyday essentials straight from Amazon. Amazon will also offer phones like Samsung Galaxy M40 and Oppo F11 Pro with discounts and offers.
You need to be an Amazon Prime Member to get these deals, but you can sign up for a free trial, a student trial or even a discounted Prime membership if you have an EBT card. The 60-second spot, which the San Jose, California-based company began airing on social channels on Thursday, features a real-life teenager named Alexa educating her dad about Prime Day.
When Does Prime Day 2019 Start: 2:59 AM eastern Monday, July 15th.
When Does Prime Day 2019 End? Amazon represented a whopping 49.1% of USA retail sales in 2018, per eMarketer. Instead, go through the main Lightning Deals in the morning or when the sale goes live at midnight, and see if something you want is listed.
Some early deals are already posted.
