United Kingdom retailers ‘hijack’ Amazon Prime Day

Share

eBay.com has kicked off its own "Primo" sale, offering hot deals on electronics and more with a 110 percent price guarantee and an additional 15 percent off. Wow!

This year's Amazon Prime Day begins on Monday 16 July and ends at midnight on Tuesday 17 July.

Daniel Ives believes that this strategy would surely allow Amazon to go on and become established further into the daily lifestyle of consumers and reach out to more customers with dual services on a worldwide basis.

Amazon Prime Music will also be launching specially curated playlists in several Indian languages including Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Punjabi, Malayalam, Gujarati, Rajasthani, Bengali and two new languages - Assamese and Odia. For this to happen, Amazon would take around nearly one year more, but the direction for the path is set by the company.

Meanwhile, pet ware is likely to reap the benefits this Amazon Prime Day (July 18) with the category receiving the largest year-on-year increase in revenue (176%) and sales (200%).

Amazon's real aim with Prime Day is to drive Prime membership. You can save 66% off a three-month membership, or start a 30-day free trial with Audible Romance for unlimited access to thousands of romance audiobooks.

By the time, we roll into the next year; the tech giant Amazon would have nicely poised to be accountable for nearly half of all the e-commerce sales in the US. (Exclusive streaming of "The Americans", "Downton Abbey" and originals like "Transparent" could be in your future.) And you can watch Oscar-nominated movies like "Lady Bird" and "Moonlight" between binges of camp-tastic "Dynasty" and black comedy "Fleabag". Your best bet on Prime Day is to do your homework, don't impulse buy, make sure you read reviews on sale items, make sure what you're getting has all the bells and whistles you want, and is really a sale price. Keep in mind, however, that means you have to secure another account containing all your payment information.

Amazon Prime members will receive a $10 credit when they spend $10 or more at Whole Foods between July 11 and 17.
