Win yourself an Amazon gift card ahead of Prime Day 2018

Stay tuned for more Prime Day 2018 deals as they're announced. In previous years it's marketed Prime Day as having "more deals than Black Friday".

Now integrated into Amazon Prime, Whole Foods Market is set to make its Prime Day debut. During Prime Day, new deals are released every five minutes, plus special offers for anything included with Prime, from music to video, reading and even groceries.

Prime Day will come to Australia just one month after Amazon launched its subscription service, Prime, locally, with a monthly cost of $4.99 for free two-day shipping, early access to sales, and Amazon's streaming video and e-book services.

"Prime members will enjoy a day (and a half) of our best deals, with 36 hours to shop more than one million deals worldwide", Jeff Wilke, worldwide consumer CEO at Seattle-based Amazon.

It's usually a bit easier to take advantage of the Gold Box Deals of the Day, which last 24 hours before being replaced by new ones.

This year analysts say Amazon will really push deals on products that use Alexa, Amazon's voice-powered digital assistant.

Each day, new deals on Prime Video, Amazon Music, and Twitch Prime will be unlocked, offering huge discounts on movies, music and Kindle books.

As Amazon mentions here, the savings won't only be on Amazon's website. He added that Prime Day was started in 2015 to mark Amazon's 20-year anniversary and thank its Prime members.

So, to help you with that and give you some tips on how to find the best Amazon Prime Day 2018 deals, we've compiled the following guide.

Also through July 17, you can start a free trial of AmazonFresh and get $30 off your first order with the code 30FRESH.

Do you need a Prime membership to participate? Of course, there is no way you'll be able to keep up with all of that so the team at Thrifter will be covering all of the best deals as they happen.

Amazon also has lightning deals that are quick-fire short-term discounts on certain items. Previous year the event ran for 30 hours, so Amazon is extending it for 2018.

Amazon users flock to the event for price markdowns. However, some Amazon products and services are available at a discount now.

Meanwhile, Target is offering a $5 gift card when you spend $25 or more on select household essential items.
