Amazon India has announced the dates of its Prime Day Sale. The sale will be held on July 26 and July 27 and will deliver deals and savings across categories, including smartphones, consumer electronics, appliances, amazon devices, and more exclusively to Prime members, along with new launches, the best entertainment benefits, bank offers and among others.

What is Amazon Prime Day?

Amazon Prime Day was first held in July 2015, on its twentieth anniversary, and lasted 24 hours. Since then, the event has been repeated every year and is an opportunity to offer Amazon customers substantial discounts on all product categories on the e-commerce site.

Furthermore, the new editions of Amazon's Prime Day no longer last 24 but 48 hours. 

However, it is good to remember that some flash offers only last for a very limited period of time. There are also pre-Prime Day and post-Prime Day offers, which also start a few days before or last for a few days after the event.

Who Can Participate?

To shop during Amazon Prime Day 2021, and take advantage of the valuable offers, you need to be a registered Amazon Prime member.  In India, currently, there are three different Amazon Prime plans: a monthly plan costing Rs 129, a three-month plan for Rs 329, and an annual plan available for Rs 999. 

It is also important to remember that if you have an account that has never used the Prime offer, you can activate a free 30-day trial, at the end of which the subscription to Prime is automatically renewed, with an annual plan of Rs 999.

The renewal is not mandatory and you can cancel your subscription once the free trial is exhausted. 

Therefore, those wishing to take advantage of the Amazon Prime Day 2021 offers, if they have never used the 30-day free trial, still have time to activate it and enjoy all the benefits deriving from the Prime subscription.
