Amazon announces Prime Day 2018: Brace yourselves for millions of deals!
Lo and behold, Amazon is gearing for yet another Prime Day in less than two weeks' time, and if our past experiences are anything to go by, Prime users will be able to sweetly make use of tons of spectacular deals on a plethora of different products.

This year's Amazon Prime Day kicks off  July 16 at 12PM PT (3PM ET) and will last through 12AM PT on July 17 (3AM ET on July 18).

Amazon boasts that this Prime Day will feature well over a million deals which will be exclusive for Prime members. What's more, Spotlight Deals will be 50% more than last year's Prime Day ones. What's more, Amazon will also kick off twice as many deals on its own hardware products as it did last year -just the perfect time to get that Amazon Echo, a Fire TV, a Fire tablet, or that Kindle you've been lusting after.

Starting today, Amazon will reveal a slew of deals every day leading to this year's Prime Day. Here's the first leg:

  • Echo Show – Save $100 on Echo Show, which brings you everything you love about Alexa, and can show you things. Make video calls or watch video flash briefings, movies and TV shows, see music lyrics, smart home cameras, photos, weather forecasts, and more. All hands-free—just ask.
  • Amazon Brands – Find our lowest prices on products from collections available exclusively on Amazon, including up to 25% off furniture and décor from Rivet and Stone & Beam, up to 20% off AmazonBasics items, and 30% off everyday essentials from Presto!, Mama Bear and Solimo, among others.

If it isn't already on your wish list, you likely don't really want it or need it.
