Telecom companies such as Airtel and Vodafone too are offering the Prime membership for free when you opt for some of their plans.

Unlike the one-day sale for subscribers of Amazon Prime, which carries a yearly membership fee, Target says its promotion is for "everybody", and will be held online and in stores.

The red color variant of the OnePlus 6 is now finally available, while not on sale it is exclusively available on Amazon starting today. The 9am flash sale on July 17 will include a massive Rs. 32,000 discount on TCL's 65-inch smart TV. And if you don't want to shell out so much, you can also get it for a month for Rs 129. The Google Pixel 2 also comes with a buyback guarantee for Rs 199, which offers buyback guarantee value of up to Rs 37,000 while upgrading to a new smartphone within 6-8 months via Flipkart. If you don't have the Prime membership, then please get on the bandwagon to make use of all the deals that will be live for 36 hours only.

One big differentiator this year from Amazon is its VR experience.

"Want to try these products before buying them?"

For example, customers can see a dress modelled in 3-dimension, open a microwave placed on the kitchen countertop to look inside, and more. Only Amazon Prime customers are eligible for the special discounts.

For Walmart-owned Flipkart, this is one of the first massive sales it is hosting since the Walmart deal.

To start with, buyers using an SBI credit card will get an instant 10 percent discount, and the sale will last for a total of 80 hours.

The biggest draw, however, will be sales on smartphones, which can be bought at incredibly low prices. Other deals available in the Flipkart sale include the Acer Predator Gaming Laptop, Google Home and Chromecast, power banks, Apple Watch Series 3, TVs and large appliances, Home, Furniture, Beauty and Fitness, Fashion and more. The e-tailer will also host sales for Xiaomi's Redmi 5A and Redmi Note 5 Pro, as well as Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 at different time slots on July 16.

Top offers include Bosch Convection microwave ovens under Rs 12,000 (with the option of no cost EMI available), Samsung 21 L Convection microwave oven or less than Rs 10,000 and IFB's 20 L convection microwave oven at almost 30% discount.

There are also chances to win rewards worth lakhs through various contests that will run on the platform from July 12-19.
