Amazon India to offer Prime membership at half price to these users


The £20-off deal on an annual Prime subscription, which is usually £79 per year, is available now until midnight on Tuesday 16th July, when Prime Day officially ends.

The made-up holiday, first held in 2015, has become one of Amazon's busiest shopping days, offering discounts on gadgets, television sets, and other goods.

Amazon Prime membership comes with a host of benefits, not least of which is exclusive access to the best Amazon Prime Day deals in the two-day sale next week. There will be an Amazon exclusive version of Jabra Elite 85h headphones launching on Prime Day.

For UK Amazon-ers, there's now a great deal going for Prime Membership - you can save £20 on the annual cost, reducing it to just £59 for a whole year. Based on past Prime Days, expect the deepest discounts to be on Amazon devices, like its voice-activated Echo speakers and Kindle e-book readers.

It's turned into a mid-summer event for deal-hunting shoppers, and it's drawn hot competition from other retailers.

The volume of deals may be overwhelming, so experts advise consumers to not act on impulse and wait for that good deal to make sure you're saving the money you want. We're bringing you the most up-to-date news and latest details on the 48-hour-sales event, from the best Prime Day furniture promotions to Prime Day beauty sales happening now.

"Just because something is on sale", said Skirboll, "doesn't mean it's a great deal".
