Amazon Prime Days July 16th

I was just wondering if Amazon Prime Day 2018 has been announced yet, I received an amazon package today, and the box was sealed with this tape:

Could the date be July 16?

*GCs don't count as a purchase for SDM promotions.
*The maximtum you can redeem at any time is $500.
*For best value, get points with SDM promos, spend them at grocery stores.

I had a banner when viewing amazon.ca that said 'get ready for prime day' and offered a $7.50 credit on a $100 reload. I think it's usually $5.
Always hungry ;)

Time to set some cash aside.

Hopefully this time something good. Last year was pretty subpar and uneventful compared to the year before (2016)

As far as I have seen up to this moment, it seems Amazon has less promotion or less attractive promotion this year. This year Prime day, I think Amazon may aim at offering some good discounts on the kitchenware again (like instant pot) and smart device/IOT. Other than that, Amazon may just offer a normal discount during the Prime day. If you are looking for electronic like computer, monitor, hard disk, etc ..., Prime day is normally not the day to offer deep discount for this category. You may want to wait for BF or Christmas.

Outside of the instant pot, these Amazon Prime Days was like browsing through aliexpress.

I'll probably just use Prime Day as an opportunity to re-register for free Prime and cancel after a month

Because half of the sales are coming from third-party sellers. Amazon is becoming a space rental business in the warehouse.

They teased a few pre-Prime Day deals in their press release. Most interesting one is probably the $10 credit for streaming Prime Video starting July 9.
Every day leading up to Prime Day, members in Canada will have access to exclusive offers and deals. Here is a list of deals to come, many which start now:

  • Amazon Brands – Find the lowest prices of the year on products from Amazon private label collections including up to 25% off AmazonBasics and Pinzon.
  • Amazon Devices – This year, Prime Day will feature double the deals on Amazon devices—and the biggest deals yet on home security, smart home and Alexa-enabled products.
  • Whole Foods – On Prime Day, members will save 30% when they spend $35 or more on Whole Foods 365 Everyday Value products on Amazon.ca. To celebrate the first Prime Day for Whole Foods Market stores, members in Canada will receive $10 off all in-store purchases over $50 from Wednesday, July 11 to Tuesday, July 17.
  • Prime Video, DVDs and Blu-Ray – Save up to 50% on popular movies and TV shows on DVD and Blu-Ray. Members will also get a $10 Amazon.ca credit for their first stream on Prime Video between Monday, July 9 and Prime Day.
  • Twitch Prime – Members can enjoy hundreds of hours of free gameplay as Twitch Prime gives away a free PC game every day through July 18, including titles like Pillars of Eternity and Brutal Legend. Members will also receive exclusive in-game loot for Warframe and PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS.
  • Kindle Unlimited – Eligible Prime members can get three months of unlimited reading for $0.99 with a Kindle Unlimited membership.
You can also apparently get a $5.00 credit if you download the app for the first time starting today. I can't confirm if it actually works since I already have the app, but if someone wants to try it:
  • The Amazon App – Download the Amazon App to shop Prime Day deals wherever you go. Also, customers who download the Amazon App for the first time starting today through Prime Day will receive a $5 credit towards their Amazon.ca account.

Working in eCommerce, this is one of the biggest trends right now - becoming a Marketplace. The US is filled with it, and it's expended into Canadian expansions too (Best Buy, Walmart, etc.). It's especially popular for smaller merchants, since they get new markets for their goods, while also displaying the products from other retailers on their site, to make them look bigger. Expect to see more and more of it....

If I recall last year, the only deal I even remotely considered was the Nest/Ecobee deals. But hey, maybe *something* will catch my eye this year.
