Leak reveals 2018 Amazon Prime Day might start on July 16

Leak reveals 2018 Amazon Prime Day might start on July 16

Amazon's fourth yearly Prime Day monster sale will kick off in mid-July, Amazon mistakenly revealed, according to a posting of the dates from its United Kingdom website.

There isn't yet an officially announced Prime Day 2018 date yet, but a recent banner leak suggests that Prime Day 2018 will take place on July 16, 2018. Yet others have reported that Prime Day 2018 will be on July 17th, 2018.

Amazon launched Prime Day, which it says boasts more deals than Black Friday, in 2015. That's all according to a Prime Day 2018 banner published on the Amazon UK website - presumably in error - and discovered by TechRadar this morning. If their deal meets stock and pricing criteria, it may be featured by Amazon.

Consumers can expect discounts on Prime membership in the days leading up to Prime Day.

The catch is that you'll need to be a Prime Member in order to get access to these exclusive deals on Prime Day. As I mentioned in the prior paragraph, since some retailers are launching their sales independently of the Amazon lightning sale, some very big deals that won't sell out due to stock limitations appear July 17. Why?

United Kingdom multiplay telco BT has become the first major United Kingdom pay-TV provider to offer Amazon Prime Video access via a set-top box - giving customers the ability to access Prime Video's TV & movie content at the push of the button. If you associate Prime Day primarily with tech, you'll be missing half the excitement! Pocket-lint will be trawling Amazon's pages throughout the deals period to help find the best deals available to save you the hassle. There are layers upon layers of additional pages and tabs within Amazon where some of the best deals are hidden or less accessible.

Last year, Amazon launched Prime Wardrobe in beta to a select invited group of people, and now the brand is opening up the clothing service, which rivals clothing subscription companies like Stitch Fix, to the public.

Want to see if there will be any cord cutting deals? Don't blame Amazon if you're inundated with cat-related deals on Prime Day. Amazon curates everything, including the alternative book options, so parents can't get any book they want, but that's still a good option to have in case they already own a selected title.

That means there's a significant amount of people not watching Amazon's original programming, especially since the company now has 100 million members: Based on Morgan Stanley's analysis, around 20 million potential viewers are missing out on high-production shows like The Man in the High Castle, and critically-acclaimed comedies like The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.
