While revealing its back to school and college deals, Amazon has also given us a nice peek at some of the deals we can expect to see on Prime Day. That will get you all the free games from Twitch that are available between now and Prime Day.

Building on the success of new product launches a year ago, Amazon is launching the second edition of its highly anticipated Prime Day event this month.

Last year, Prime Day deals were available to those in the U.S., UK, Spain, Mexico, Japan, India, Italy, Germany, France, China, Canada, Belgium, and Austria.

What is Amazon Prime Day?

Kicking off at 3 p.m. ET, Highsnobiety will be bringing you all the best from Amazon on the day, so be sure to check in on our Shopping vertical for regular updates as and when we see a deal that we think you'll like.

In a global flagship event created by Amazon, over 100 million Prime members in 17 countries, including India, will participate in Prime Day.

With $900m fortune, Kylie Jenner set to become youngest self-made billionaire
She has more than 110 million followers on Instagram , 25.6 million on Twitter and 16.4 million follow her company directly. Thanks to this minuscule overhead and marketing costs, Forbes writes, the profits are outsize and go directly to Jenner.

This is the fourth annual Prime Day event. Alongside the new launches, there would also be plenty of deals on mobiles, electronics, appliances, fashion and everyday essentials "at the lowest prices of the year".

In addition to these products, Amazon will very obviously offer big discounts on their own products including Kindle e-readers, Fire TV Stick, Amazon Echo smart speakers, and even AmazonBasics products across various categories. But if you don't want to pay the per month charge to hang on to your membership, just cancel before the end of the free 30-day period. You can find the full list here. As usual, Prime Day sales items will include products from private labels, SMBs and big brands alike.

Some of the other special offers for Prime members include four months off Prime Music for 99pm from Amazon Music Unlimited (AMU) - a deal that expires on Tuesday, July 31.

How do I get the best Prime Day 2018 deals?

Around a million deals will be up for grabs for subscribers of Amazon Prime.

Until then, here's everything you need to know about the day to optimize your purchasing time. 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.
