Amazon Prime is a paid subscription service giving its users a number of enhanced services and delivery incentives. It had more sign-ups during 2017's event than any other day in the company's history, Amazon said at the time, without providing specific numbers. What's more, Amazon will also kick off twice as many deals on its own hardware products as it did past year -just the flawless time to get that Amazon Echo, a Fire TV, a Fire tablet, or that Kindle you've been lusting after.

The offers officially begin at noon on Monday, July 16 and will run until the end of Tuesday, July 17. As the name suggests, this sale will be open only for Prime members of Amazon, and it will start at 12 PM on July 16.

These could be the "home security devices" that will be newly on sale this year during Prime Day, alongside the Echo Show.

Don't forget, you need to be an Amazon Prime member to enjoy the exclusive Prime Day deals.

Amazon Prime Day has fast become one of the biggest shopping events of the year, right up there with the juggernaut that is Black Friday when it comes to bargains.

Amazon Prime Day is roughly comparable to other online sales promotions like Click Frenzy and Cyber Monday. It gets you a whole range of benefits from early access to deals, Prime Video, free delivery and a whole lot more.
