(A word to the wise - Be sure to thoroughly read the article or you might miss some crucial tips from me. You have been warned!)

THE 36 HOUR SALE STARTS TODAY!


Last year, I wrote about how epic it was to shop on Amazon Prime day and the time has come again for 2018. If you haven't already known, Singapore will be participating Amazon Prime Day for the very first time, since Amazon has already set anchor in our mainland a few months back.

*** AMAZON US PRIME DAY SALE STARTS AT 3PM ET (US TIME) WHICH MEANS IT IS AROUND 3 AM SINGAPORE TIME ***

* PRIME NOW SINGAPORE AMAZON PRIME DAY SALE STARTS AT 12 PM TODAY!  *

WHAT MONDAY BLUES HUH???


As historic as it is for us Singaporeans, I am duty bound to inform you this - Time to surrender your money people because Amazon Prime Day Sale is back yet again. The annual sale, that has already made its appearance thrice, will be making its fourth one today. YESSSS!!! IT STARTS TODAY!!! However, we do not have any clear indication as to what capacity Singapore will be participating in. It could just be the items listed on our limited Prime Now app or Amazon could be a dear and open up its big heavenly gates to the US warehouse items.

You do have to take note that the awesome discounts will ONLY be offered to AMAZON PRIME MEMBERSShoppers who are Prime Members in Singapore can begin clicking on the "add to carts" on today from (most likely) 9 am onwards. Last's year's Prime Day broke Amazon's record sales record of yesteryears and the record is expected to be broken again. Let's me fill you in on what kind of discounts you can hope to see. Here's a rundown -

SHOP TIL YOU DROP....

And of course, this goes without saying that there are more items such as game consoles, laptops, tablets, cameras, furniture that will be on discounts. A best practice I would also advice, is to install Amazon Assistant on your Chrome or your internet browser. It will make things much much breezy. Click this link to install - http://amzn.to/2swpRTn

Alrighty shoppers. All the best for your next tech hunt. See you at the end of Amazon Prime Day! Cheers!
