Amazon’s Prime Day is one of the most anticipated sales every year wherein customers can get huge deals online. Prime Day is now live in India, but in the US, it might happen “later than usual” due to the continuous rise of coronavirus cases.
As for India, Prime Day is live for a couple of days. Tech deals like the iPhone 11, which has a standard price of around $900 in the area, can now be bought for $800 which is equivalent to approximately 60,000 rupees in India. Aside from the iPhone, the OnePlus 7T Pro that has been praised for its 1080x2400-pixel resolution and 8GB RAM is also up for grabs with a discount of $53.
Amazon Prime Day is a shopping event that goes on for 2 days – typically held in July – an annual event that exclusively caters Prime members. Aside from phones, it has a wide array of products like Fire tablets, Bose headphones, Blink cameras, Kindle e-readers, and – of course – Amazon’s own products, that can be delivered straight to a customer’s home.
As for the US customers, they might have to wait until the fourth quarter of the year starts, according to Amazon’s finance chief, Brian Oslavsky. The company is said to be working with its selling partners to deliver a successful event to Prime members. Although it was headlined that it could happen by October, Amazon has yet to confirm any date for the US Prime Day.
Amazon has made efforts in the US to improve its site over the past months. For one, it has recently removed white supremacist and neo-Nazi products on its platform, along with other e-commerce tech giants. The goods, which became unavailable on July 25, consisted of Ku Klux Klan merchandise that Amazon’s algorithm recommended to shoppers. Amazon is also developing Scout, the company’s six-wheeler delivery robot which underwent trials in Tennessee, Atlanta, and Georgia.
