Amazon Prime Day is coming to India for the first time on July 11. This is the day of the year when the e-commerce giant runs ‘'hundreds of thousands of deals” for its members around the world. Exclusively meant for its Prime subscribers, the 30-hour sale will have exclusive offers and discounts, cashback, on a range of products including smartphones. The first annual India Prime Day sale will start at 6PM on Monday, 10th July across all markets where the company will bring new deals ‘’as often as every five minutes’’.
India will witness the Amazon Prime Day Sale for the first time along with China and Mexico, while the event is already a hit in several other countries. The sale is exclusively for Amazon Prime members and regular buyers will not be able to access these deals.
Usually the Prime Day sale commenced only for 24 hours but this time around, Amazon has raised the shopping hours to 30.
“We even decided that 24 hours in a day just isn’t enough time to shop all of the great deals – so we’re giving Prime members 30 hours to shop on Prime Day,” says Greg Greeley, Vice President, Amazon Prime.
The deal shopping starts from 6PM on Monday, July 10 and customers will see new deals every five minutes. Amazon has expanded the Prime Day to 13 countries including India.
As per Amazon, many Prime Day deals will be unveiled a day before the sale on July 9. Those who are still not subscribed to Prime membership can pay a fee of Rs 499 per year and participate in the first gala sale from the e-commerce giant.
Amazon will exclusively launch some products from Honor, Lego, Delsey, IFB and others. Moreover, the Amazon Prime Day page says it will reveal new Prime Video titles, new deals, launches and updates on July 5.
“Every side of our business is working to deliver more deals for a record number of shoppers,” says Greg.
Deal available for now include a cashback of Rs 499 on Amazon Fire TV Stick.
Users opting for Amazon Pay balance will be eligible for some additional perks apart from usual cashback and discounts. There’s up to 15 percent cashback on HDFC cards (maximum cashback Rs 2000) and up to 20 percent cashback on Amazon Pay balance (maximum up to Rs 200).
