Amazon's Prime Day "presents a tremendous opportunity for other retailers if they know how to take advantage of it", said David Bassuk, global co-head of the retail practice at consultant AlixPartners. Amazon will be running six big flash sales through the day. The online retail giant's 36-hour sale for Prime members begins today at noon. Massive discounts on iPhone X, iPhone 8, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone SE and more are expected. Also, if you are HDFC Bank credit and debit cards to purchase the smartphones then you will receive 10% discount instantly, but not to forget the offers are exclusive for Amazon Prime Users. The discount will reduce its price from the current Rs 4,099 to Rs 2,255.
However, unlike Black Friday, not everyone can get involved with the deals, you need to be a paying Amazon Prime customer to make the most of it.
Prime Day was introduced in 2015 in the U.S. as a one-day only sales event claiming more deals than Black Friday to celebrate Amazon's 20th anniversary.
That gives you a full 36 hours to get your hands on the hot deals.
Coming to smartphones, Prime members will get up to 6,000 off on Honor smartphones along with extra 2,000 off on exchange and no-cost EMI starting from Rs 1,111 per month. You get two TCL TVs for the price of one.
The Amazon Fire Stick has been reduced, but you can save yourself some money on Amazon Prime Day 2018.
