Amazon Prime Day 2018: Best Things to Buy

This year's deals include discounts on hot electronics, freebies for subscribers of services under the Amazon umbrella like Twitch and Kindle, and just about everything else you can imagine.

The discounts are available only for Amazon Prime members, Amazon's subscription service which ensures faster and cheaper item delivery and access to its TV and Music services.

Amazon Australia is providing buyers a free Echo Dot with purchases of its standard Echo smart speaker ($149) - a promotion which is valid until its inaugural Prime Day on July 16th.

Even if you're a lapsed Prime member and you can't get the free trial, signing up for a one-month membership may be worthwhile, depending on what Prime Day deals you want to take advantage of.

Amazon is now preparing for the big Prime Day sale, spread over 36 hours beginning July 16. First, you need to log into Prime Video, stream a TV show or movie for the first time, then within 3-4 days, you'll see $10 in credit applied to your account, along with a confirmation email.
