"Prime members will enjoy a day (and a half) of our best deals, with 36 hours to shop more than one million deals worldwide", said Jeff Wilke, Amazon CEO of Worldwide Consumer.

Amazon has finally announced the date we've all been waiting for - Amazon Prime Day is coming July 16th and will last a whopping 36 hours.

Amazon launched Prime in Australia last month, offering free 2-day shipping, access to Prime Video, Books, Twitch streaming and cheaper worldwide shipping for $59/year or $4.99/month until the 31st of January 2019 when it jumps to $6.99/month - as well as getting a free 30-day trial to start you off. Every day leading up to Prime Day, Prime members will find exclusive offers and deals. These include Kindle e-readers, Fire TV Stick, Amazon Echo smart speakers, and even AmazonBasics products across various categories. Just ask her on your Echo. During this time, Amazon will provide product deals, exclusive launches, and video releases in addition to six flash sales which will start at 1 PM on July 16.

Save up to 50% on popular movies and TV shows on digital, DVD and Blu-Ray.

First of all, if you want to get in on the action, you need to sign-up to Amazon Prime. In-game content for Warframe and Playerunknown's Battlegrounds are also being given away to Twitch Prime users.

Amazon Prime Day originally came about as a celebration of Amazon's 20th anniversary back in 2015 and has always taken place in July.

Amazon has been building out its own brands in recent years, and is using Prime Day to highlight those collections. If you haven't yet, sign up here for Amazon Prime, and enjoy a 30-day free trial. From style and fashion to electronics, cooking, travel and more - discover deals that you'll love faster.

Amazon is kicking off the Prime Day deals starting immediately, however.

Amazon has been organising its Prime Day sale for the last three years. Solid and recent gems fill out the daily Twitch Prime bonuses, including the space-station stories of Tacoma, the Portal-like puzzle-solving of Qube 2, the quirky puzzle-RPG Battle Chef Brigade, the retro-platformer Uurnog Unlimited, the arcade-shooting classic Metal Slug 3, and a pair of Double Fine games: Broken Age and Brutal Legend.

"We anticipate strong response and we prepared accordingly", Jamil Ghani, vice president of Prime global, said in an interview. In 2016, a computer glitch prevented people from checking out their purchases online in the early hours of the sale.
