EBay throws shade at Amazon ahead of Prime Day

Just click on the 30-day trial membership is free (and Amazon Prime is $12.99/month) and you will gain access to the deals offered throughout Prime Day. Starting at July 16 noon, the sale will run through till midnight on July 17.

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.

Amazon's big Prime Day 2018 sale is now less than a week away, but tons of deep discounts are already available in the lead-up to the big blowout. According to reports from last year, Amazon's 2017 Prime Day was the company's biggest sales day ever - growing more than 60 percent over the previous year's results and bringing in more new Prime members than in any other single 24-hour period in Amazon's history. The multi-functional Instant Pot is a perennial favorite for Prime Day.

If you're a student, you're in luck, because Amazon is offering you a free six-month Amazon Prime trial. 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!

You can get three months of Kindle Unlimited for $1, when it usually costs $10. On Prime Day, the company will launch a two-hour express delivery service on the back of "I Have Space" warehouses. The new discounts include shipping and span categories including electronics, fashion and sports.

As you'd expect, we're going to be hunting best deals throughout Prime Day on both sides of the Atlantic, finding the deals that you really don't want to miss. Amazon Prime yearly subscription is now $119, with benefits including free and faster delivery times, access to Amazon's streaming services, and Prime-specific discounts.

Then, starting July 16, eBay's real rival sale begins. Search for the items you're interested in and sign up for the "watching list". Prior to Prime Day's arrival next week, it's been reduced in cost from its usual price of £107.49 all the way down to £54.92.

You know the Amazon brand when you need anything from a computer case to paper shredder to an iPhone charger, those will be up to 30 percent off. There's a good chance that spammers and scammers will latch on to Prime Day much as they have with Black Friday and Cyber Monday, so be wary of unsolicited emails or links to deals on social media no matter how legitimate they look: anything asking for card details or login details is a scam.
