Amazon Prime Day: Heed these tips before you click


Here is how to avail the offer: To avail the Youth Offer on Prime memberships, you have to sign up, verify and get cash back. This year, Amazon is hosting its Prime Day sale for two days from July 15 to 16. And this year's doorbuster sales event will be more distracting than ever, as Amazon has decided to make it a two-day shopping extravaganza running through the end of Tuesday.

While the vast majority of the deals will stay hidden until Amazon Prime Day itself, further benefits, which Amazon Prime members can enjoy throughout the entire year, include free streaming of thousands of movies and TV shows on Netflix-rivalling Prime Video, early access to Lightning Deals, plenty of free books and magazines on Prime Reading, plus next-day and same-day delivery on select items.

Well, there are a lot of them, most of which will run through Sunday, July 14, at 11:59 p.m. CT in anticipation of the actual Deal Days madness, but we'll obviously try to steer away from things like pools, patio furniture, gardening equipment, kids' uniforms, backpacks, and so on.

Amazon's Prime membership offer comes just days ahead of the annual Prime Day sale. However, consumers should be wary of some third-party sellers who may boost an item's priced to take advantage of the shopping event. Customers can then use the Amazon Pay balance on the e-commerce platform or across other online and offline platforms. But there will also be discounts on other electronics.

But the retailer does promise to expand on last year's insane successful Prime Day-opposing One-Day sale with two distinct days of killer deals on items as diverse as furniture, indoor rugs, kitchen appliances, books, bedding, cookware, floorcare, sandals, toys, sporting goods, vehicle seats and strollers, and much more.

As its Prime Day sale approaches, Amazon has announced that 18 to 24-year-old customers can get 50% (Rs 500) cashback on joining annual Prime membership of Rs 999.

Hundreds of fashion brands will be available at bargain prices during the sale.
