Here’s what deal seekers need to know:
Who: The deals are only available for Amazon customers with Prime memberships. However, shoppers can sign up for a free 30-day trial to take advantage of the sale (don’t forget to cancel if you don’t want to pay the fee).
In addition to the U.S., shoppers in nine countries can participate, including Spain, Japan, France, Canada and the U.K. The deals will differ slightly in each country.
What: The company said the sale will be the “biggest global Amazon event ever,” and new deals will roll out throughout the day.
There will be three types of deals on Prime Day: Spotlight Deals, Lightning Deals and Savings and Deals. Spotlight Deals are the best deals of the day, according to the company.
A Lightning Deal is only available for a limited time — typically a few hours.
The company has been tight-lipped about exactly what will be on sale.
Customers who have an Echo device, which uses Amazon’s voice-command assistant Alexa, will be able to buy Prime Deals using their voice. They can also get$10 off their first purchase of at least $20 when they buy through the device.
Alexa has been offering exclusive deals for the past few days, including a Dromida Kodo UAV Quadcopter drone for $25 and an Amazon Tap for $79 — a nearly 40% discount.
