Consumer Alert: What you need to know before Amazon Prime Day

Besides Xiaomi mobile phones, there will be other smartphone offers during the 36-hour-long Amazon Prime Day sale on 16-17 July.

eBay.com has kicked off its own "Primo" sale, offering hot deals on electronics and more with a 110 percent price guarantee and an additional 15 percent off. Wow! All told, 21 free games are available throughout July.

Amazon has never shared its actual sales figures for Prime Day, but the company did disclose, during an April shareholder meeting, that it now has more than 100 million Prime members.

Next week, Redmi Y2 smartphone will be sold again exclusively on Amazon Prime Day only for Prime members.

Last year, Prime Day deals were available to those in the U.S., UK, Spain, Mexico, Japan, India, Italy, Germany, France, China, Canada, Belgium, and Austria. But if you're not a subscriber, don't worry, you can still take advantage of Prime Day prices by signing up for a temporary membership for free!


Some of the other special offers for Prime members include four months off Prime Music for 99pm from Amazon Music Unlimited (AMU) - a deal that expires on Tuesday, July 31.

For the avid reader out there, Prime Day will be the best day to get an e-reader, with the price getting cut by a third.

What is more, for the first time on Prime Day, members can shop from hundreds of deals from Amazon's global selection. Prime members will also be able to shop for new handicraft products such as Kalamkari Ikat, Pochampally & Banarasi Sarees, Ajrakh hand-block printed apparels and even tribal paintings and jewelry.

You can cancel at any time during your free trial and you won't be charged a penny. And, with the company's acquisition of Whole Foods in June of previous year, Prime Day deals will also include Whole Foods-related shopping perks, bringing the online event into the brick and mortar realm.

What's more, anyone holding an Amazon Prime Rewards credit card can get an extra discount at Whole Foods soon.
