Amazon's "Prime Day" is back, and so is the temptation to shop and overspend on stuff you don't need. Also, the best tactic to follow during Prime Day is to make your purchases during the presale offers so that you have time to make any returns in case you find a better price later on. Unfortunately, we don't have an actual time when Target plans to start the festivities, so technically, this might not be a full 48-hour affair, as it's officially scheduled to end at 11:59 p.m. CT on Tuesday, July 16. Based on past Prime Days, expect the deepest discounts to be on Amazon devices, like its voice-activated Echo speakers and Kindle e-book readers.
eBay is bringing the heat this year as part of its rivalry with Amazon ahead of the latter's two-day Prime Day 2019, which will offer Amazon Prime subscribers more than a million deals and kicks off at midnight PT on Monday, July 15. Featured deals include more than 50 percent off on LG, Apple, Samsung, KitchenAid, Garmin and other consumer electronics, "with a fresh batch of too-good-to-be-true deals that will drop if Amazon crashes", the auction site said in an announcement. Without a Prime membership you won't be able to take advantage of the deals at all.
"You have some time to cool off, " he says. Amazon Prime is available at Rs 999 for a year and Rs 129 per month.
In a new ad spot that was set to launch Thursday afternoon across eBay's main social channels, a seeming father and daughter (named Alexa) discuss Amazon's upcoming sales event. It's turned into a mid-summer event for deal-hunting shoppers, and it's drawn hot competition from other retailers. You only get one free trial per email address, and you have to manually cancel before 30 days if you don't want to be charged. Amazon Prime also gives users exclusive access to pre-sale deals, discounts and more.
