Amazon Prime Day 2018 was a actually a day and a half this year. It started at midday on 16 July, and ended at midnight on 17 July. But just because the day is over, doesn't mean there aren't still deals to be had. Here, we share all of the best Prime deals and launches.

When is Amazon Prime Day?
Amazon Prime Day is now over until 2019. It began at midday on 16 July, and continued until midnight on Tuesday 17 July. That made this the longest Amazon Prime 'Day' to date, spanning 36 hours.
It featured more than one million deals globally, and Amazon delivered 40% more Spotlight deals in the UK than in 2017.
It was week later than we had originally predicted, which we assume is to avoid a clash with the World Cup. Amazon Prime Day 2017 was on 11 July, and the years before it were within a day or two of that.
What is Amazon Prime Day?
Prime Day 2018 was fourth annual Prime Day Amazon has hosted. The first was in the summer of 2015 when Amazon was celebrating its 20th birthday, but it was such a success that it has now become a yearly deals event.
How to get Amazon Prime
As mentioned, the catch to Prime Day is that you need to be an Amazon Prime customer in order to take advantage of the deals.
You can find out more about Amazon Prime and the huge number of features it offers for that £79/$119 per year fee in our complete guide to Amazon Prime.
Be sure to cancel your subscription before your free trial ends to avoid being charged, unless of course you find yourself enjoying it! Find out more about how to cancel your subscription properly here.
If you've previously had a free trial of Amazon Prime, you might be surprised to hear that you can do so again if it has been more than a year since your last trial.
Amazon Prime Day tips
Make sure your payment and shipping information is up to date now to be ready to make quick purchases on the day.
Consider turning on Amazon's 1-click purchase option.
Use the Watch this Deal button on upcoming deals you see on Amazon's website, to make sure you don't miss them.
Join the Waitlist for products that say 100% claimed, because people often change their minds and don't buy. You'll get a notification to alert you if more become available.
Choose No-Rush delivery to earn rewards.
