Amazon Prime Day: Avoid these deals and items, experts say

To avail the "Youth Offer" on Prime memberships, users have to sign up for the Prime annual membership from the "youth offer" banner by paying Rs 999 with any electronic payment method (credit card, debit card, net banking or Amazon pay balance).

This year's Prime Day is actually a two-day event, on July 15 and 16.

Amazon's Prime Day, which launches in the wee hours of July 15, is so big, it now stretches 48 hours. Globally it was the biggest day of sales in Amazon's history, and Amazon Prime Day 2019 is going to be even bigger. Amazon's Prime membership comes bundled with Prime Music and Prime Video subscriptions.

The highlight: free access to a number of Premier League fixtures for the upcoming 2019/2020 season.

It's almost here. One of the biggest online retail events of the year, Prime Day, is just around the corner and it is crucial that you don't miss out on all the Amazon Prime Day game deals. Amazon will also offer phones like Samsung Galaxy M40 and Oppo F11 Pro with discounts and offers.

To cut down on impulse purchases, write down what you want before Prime Day and set a spending limit, said Ross Steinman, a professor of psychology at Widener University in Chester, Pennsylvania.

Much of what is on sale is kept a secret until the event, but you'll be able to browse the deals ahead of time on Amazon's app, the company says. Another tip is to have a plan and figure out ahead of time what you need before buying.

Other stores are crashing Amazon's party, which means more deals for shoppers. It can help you see if you're really getting the lowest price or if the item tends to be cheaper during other times of the year.

That's 12 hours longer than last year's already extended 36-hour Prime Day, during which Amazon sold more than 100 million products in 17 countries.
