Amazon sales event Prime Day to debut in Singapore on July 16


If you install the Amazon app for the first time starting today through Prime Day, Amazon will gift you $5 credit. New members will then be charged £7.99 per month once the trial period expires.

Also new this year is Amazon bringing Prime Day to Whole Foods.

The annual shopping event will be longer than years past, lasting 36 hours.

Watch a deal. You can use the Amazon App to preview, track and shop limited time Lightning Deals while at home or on-the-go with deal alerts.

Ahead of Prime Day itself, larger-than-life Amazon Smile boxes will make their way across land and sea for delivery to major cities around the world including NY, L.A., Tokyo, Milan and London, promising to "unbox" exclusive entertainment experiences for Prime members and the general public.

Amazon is gearing up to unleash special discounts and cut prices ahead of its annual summer sale and this year's bargain rush could be bigger than ever before. More than 100 million Prime members around the world, including India, will find this our best Prime Day celebration yet, Amit Agarwal, SVP & Country Manager, Amazon India.

That means Prime Day takes place a week later than usual this year, more than likely due to the World Cup Semi Finals taking place on the usual date.

Amazon Music Unlimited offers access to over 40 million songs which are all available both online and offline. The assistant will let you track Prime Day deals and orders. Members will also receive exclusive in-game loot for Warframe and PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS.

Said Jeff Wilke, Amazon CEO Worldwide Consumer: "New this year, members can shop exclusive Prime Day Launches from hundreds of brands worldwide, enjoy exclusive savings at Whole Foods Market and experience surprise entertainment events unboxed from giant Smile boxes in major cities". "Canada is geographically really vast, so to be able to offer Canadian members same day or one-day shipping on millions of items is really important for us".
