With Black Friday getting longer each year, it looks like Amazon will end up running a promotion 366 days a year at some point in the future. This year Prime day will now last 36 hours and will start at noon on Monday, 16th July until midnight 17th July.
Amazon is claiming more than one million deals globally and 40 percent more Spotlight deals in the UK than in 2017.
New this year:
- Celebrate the best of Prime entertainment in London at the ‘Unbox Prime Day’ event with a special performance from British music icons, Take That. The entertainment extravaganza (15th July) will also include a special screening of Paddington 2 from Prime Video and a meet-and-greet with Sunday Times best-selling author of First Man In: Leading From the Front, Ant Middleton, from Prime Reading.
- Members can shop Prime Day Launches – exclusive new items, content and special-edition products from well-known and emerging brands
