Amazon Prime Day 2018 does not have a set date as of yet however we hope to share some shopping tips and more in celebration of the upcoming summer sales event.
The first Amazon Prime Day was hosted in 2015 to celebrate the popular eCommerce site’s twentieth anniversary. Since then, it has been continued as an annual summer sales celebration. Though July 10th has been rumoured to be Prime Day this year, this remains unconfirmed.
If you intend to shop with Amazon this Prime Day, there’s a few things you might want to keep in mind. For example, you will need an Amazon Prime membership to enjoy the site’s discounts. When you dig into it, the terms of shopping eCommerce with Amazon on Prime Day might not be so favorable. For those eagerly anticipating nabbing themselves a bargain, the pricing for Prime Day has been shown over the years to be not that much different than the eCommerce site’s regular pricing. That’s not to say Amazon pricing is a bad thing. Sometimes they got some pretty good deals. That said, Prime Day has been criticized by non-Amazon shoppers for being nothing more than an exercise in marketing, instead of a real sales event.
This upcoming Amazon Prime Day 2018, a shopping tip you might want to consider is shopping with some of the eCommerce alternatives out there. Just as in corporate retail for Black Friday, the competition for Prime Day is fierce. As one of Canada’s favourite and fastest growing eCommerce sites, PrimeCables specializes in cables, adapters, mounts, sit-stands, tools, appliances, home theater accessories, smart home accessories, network solutions, and more.
