Amazon Prime Day will be held for the third year on 11 July, including for the first time online shoppers in China, India and Japan.
International members will get access to hundreds of thousands of deals during the event, which this year will start in the evening of 10 July.

Prime Day has also expanded to 13 countries: the US, UK, Spain, Mexico, Japan, Italy, India, Germany, France, China, Canada, Belgium and Austria.
Prime members in China and Mexico will be able to shop both local deals as well as select items from other countries via the Amazon Global Store.
