It's a Prime Day premiere for Whole Foods

Amazon Prime Day 2018 is almost here-and it's six hours longer than ever before, starting July 16 at 12pm PST (3pm EST) through July 17, according to the Amazon Prime Day press release. Yes, that's a full 36 hours of Amazon Prime Day deals. Starting July 3, a ton of Prime sales are hot and heavy at their actual Prime Day prices, so Prime members can get a head start and get some deals out of the way. Then on Prime Day, you can check your shopping cart and Amazon will automatically change the price on those products to whatever the sales price is. Whole Foods will also be involved in Prime Day this year with deals and offers at all US stores, after being acquired by Amazon a year ago.

Other additions to Prime Day 2018 include 50% more Spotlight Deals, the ability to track offers on the Amazon App and the option to search for deals based on popular interests and by asking Alexa. It was previously $299 and is now $129.

Whole Foods in the mix: Expect discounts on groceries as well as in-store events, such as cooking demonstrations, says Jamil Ghani, the global vice president of Amazon Prime.

Prime Day will also be held in the US, UK, Spain, Japan, Singapore, Canada, and 10 other countries on the same day. However, some Amazon products and services are available at a discount now.

In celebration of Amazon Prime day, Twitch Prime has chose to give away free PC games. You can click the "Watch this Deal" button on any deal that's more than 10 minutes away to add it to your "Watching" list.

Amazon Prime gives shoppers faster delivery and cheaper offers regularly in exchange for an annual subscription fee.

Where does Prime Day take place? You can find instructions on how to link your Amazon Prime account to Twitch via this website.

To help celebrate Amazon Prime Day 2018 (the corporate holiday that Hallmark wished they came up with), Twitch is giving away nearly a month's worth of games through their Twitch Prime service.

With these capabilities, the Echo Show is among the most advanced of Amazon's Echo speaker line and ahead of its time in general.

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

For example, Lightning Deals are promotions on specific items. However, they can also sell out, so it's always best to act quickly on those deals.
