See something you want? Top products are broken down by category, including home, outdoors, tech and Amazon devices.

Just over a year ago Amazon launched its own range of smart TVs over in the United States, which were essentially TVs with a Fire TV built right in. Any product that enjoys a Prime Day discount will return to its normal price beyond this time.

Now once it starts, what sort of deals can you expect to find? It's worth asking "Alexa, what are your deals?" occasionally throughout the day to see if she's got something new that suits your needs. And if you don't want to shell out so much, you can also get it for a month for Rs 129. The Echo Dot will be available at a discount of 45 percent. Amazon is offering deals through the Alexa home device. The biggest deal for those of us without patience, is the free 2-day shipping on most of the stuff we buy.

Amazon is expected to do an eye-watering $3.5 billion in sales today (more than three times the $1.1 billion in sales it does on an average retail day), and this year Whole Foods will be in the mix too.

For the Amazon Prime Day promotions, the retail giant has discounted LEGO sets by up to 51% - meaning that fans can pick up the mighty LEGO Technic 42055 Bucket Wheel Excavator for nearly half price. "Retailers looking to target back-to-class shoppers in the South should know these consumers are the most likely to be looking for in-store deals compared with other regions, while those in the Northeast are the most likely to shop Prime Day specifically at Amazon". Well if you happen to be an Amazon Prime member then today you've got an extra reason to be tempted. Coming to cashback and instant discounts, Prime members can save big with 10% instant discount with HDFC Bank Debit & Credit Cards, 10 percent cashback on Amazon Pay balance. The accompanying graphic shows cutouts from one such box featuring an image of planet Earth, an Amazon plane (assembly required), clouds, and a sign that reads "Prime Day". However, you can cancel before that month ends to avoid being charged anything.

Two people in a "household" may also share a membership, and the only requirement Amazon lists on its page to define "household" is having a shared payment method.
