Amazon Prime Day, the one-day biggest shopping event in the US after Black Friday. The date is not officially announced yet for Prime Day 2018 but according to some sources, this time Amazon is keeping the Prime Day celebration the complete week starting from 9 July to 15 July. It also makes sense because last Prime Day was on 12th of July and the first was on 15th July. According to BusinessInsider report, Prime Day 2018 would be on Tuesday, 10 July.
Prime Day actually was introduced in 2015 to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the company’s founding and from then Amazon celebrates it every year.
Last Year Prime Day Stats
Last year Prime Day was a huge hit for the biggest e-commerce giant. The company announced it was the biggest day in the history of Amazon. According to Amazon,
On a day with incredible deals reserved exclusively for Prime members, sales on July 11 surpassed Black Friday and Cyber Monday, making it the biggest day ever in Amazon history. The most popular purchase on Prime Day was the Amazon Echo Dot, it was also one of the biggest sales event for the Amazon devices like Fire Tablets, Echo and Kindle devices.

Why Amazon Prime Day matters?
Amazon Prime Day deals for 2018 will be the best chance to buy everything you want from the online US retailer at deep discounts no matter its Gadgets, household items, 4K TVs, Gaming Consoles, Laptops or Amazon Devices, you’ll find the bargains.
In Black Friday or Cyber Monday, you shop to gift your family members or loved ones but Amazon Prime Day is for your personal shopping and saving on household items.
Do I need a Prime subscription to take benefit of Prime Day Sales?
It depends on you. Nothing like mandatory here to have the Prime membership to shop on Prime Day. There would be deals for everyone but of course, the Prime members will have advantages in shopping lightning deals which come with limited stock. That means some of the very best deals can be gone long before people who aren’t Prime members get to know about them.
That doesn’t mean you need to pay for a Prime membership, though. You can subscribe for a free trial and take full advantage of all the Prime benefits, including Prime Day. But don’t forget to cancel the trial afterward if you don’t intend to continue. If you don’t, you’ll be automatically billed for membership when the trial period ends.

What to expect from Prime Day 2018?
We’d expect Prime Day 2018 to follow the template of the last two Prime Days. In the week or two before the big day, we’ll see an enticing Amazon Prime subscription discount. Then on the day itself deals will be grouped into two categories: Deals of the Day, which tend to be the most eye-catching and which are available in big numbers, and Lightning Deals, which cover every conceivable kind of product, have limited availability and often sell out very quickly. In the latter case, Prime members get to see the deals before non-members.
