The Worst Amazon Prime Day 2019: 5 Deals Experts Say to AVOID

All the details on Amazon's biggest shopping event of the year - and how to take advantage of the savings.

Amazon Prime Day 2019 gets underway tomorrow with the online retailer promising big discounts on its Alexa-powered devices.

"Mid-July used to be one of the sleepiest times for retailers, and Prime Day has really reshaped the dynamics", said Andrew Lipsman of the research firm eMarketer. That's a full 12 hours longer than last year's Prime Day. Of course, you might want to consider waiting until Monday before taking the plunge, as Amazon will likely offer the console at deep discount as well. Last year, the top-seller of Prime Day in Canada was a was a LifeStraw Personal Water Filter - so expect to see best-sellers and top-rated favourites on sale this year as well.

Amazon Prime Day 2019 is almost here-the two-day shopping bonanza is going down this coming Monday and Tuesday for a full 48 hours, making it the longest-running Prime Day since the event was first held in 2015.


"While the numbers are impressive, we believe there are also additional benefits of Prime Day across Amazon's ecosystem as it allows Amazon to better gauge customer demand for the second half (of the year), acts as a critical peak-day test to ready fulfilment centres and logistics for the holiday season and brings in new Prime members well ahead of the holidays". The membership is available at Rs 129 per month and Rs 999 per year.
