Prime Day 2018 – Highlights

It’s Prime Day 2018, Amazon’s unique Black Friday/Cyber Monday younger brother. While you’re a lot less likely to score a dirt cheap TV, Amazon tries to get rid of a lot of old stock, and Amazon products are always heavily discounted. The below specials will all become available starting 16 July at 3pm ET, with some of the specials becoming available earlier.

For 2018, Amazon has already announced a Kindle Unlimited special where you can get 3 months of reading for less than a dollar! At a normal cost of $10 a month, that is an incredible saving.

Also for sale are a slew of Amazon consumer products. This includes $100 off Amazon’s latest Echo product, the Echo Show. The Show has all the functionality you’ve come to expect from Alexa, with the benefit of a 7.0″ LCD screen that supports video and video chat. If you’re happy with a refurbished product, Amazon also have discounts on their Kindle Oasis, Echo Connect and Echo Look products.

One thing to keep in mind is that Prime Day is just for Prime Members. If you’re not already a Prime Member, don’t worry, you can sign up for Prime for a free month trial, specially for Prime Day. If you’re a student, you can try Prime student for free for up to 6 months before committing to any payment. If you see something on sale on Prime Day, it may well be worth your while just signing up for a month to get the guaranteed sales prices.
