Prime membership allows Amazon customers to enjoy free benefits like priority shipping and access to a host of Amazon services. The benefits vary from country to country. This year, Amazon is promising more deals, exclusive launches, and much more during its Prime Day 2019 sale event.
Let's take a look at what Amazon is offering in different countries during its Prime Day 2019 sale:

Each of the 18 countries will experience thousands of deals and offers during the 48-hour Prime Day 2019 sale event.

Prime members will be able to grab Echo speakers, Fire TV, Amazon Basics products at attractive prices. In some countries like France and the UK, Amazon will also offer discounts on its digital services including Amazon Music and Kindle Unlimited.
Nearly all countries participating in the Amazon Prime Day 2019 sale event will receive deals on smartphones, consumer electronics products, home appliances, big-screen TVs, toys, books, and a lot more during the two-day sale. The deals will consist of regular discounts and well as limited-period Lightning Deals.
In case Amazon offers its Global Store or Amazon Overseas program in your country, you can directly buy products from Amazon's online marketplace in your country.
But in case you spot a great deal on another country's Amazon marketplace, you'll have to find a workaround. Amazon ships some products internationally, especially from its US marketplace, but you'll have to factor in shipping and import duties. You can also use a third-party courier service to get your product shipped directly in your country.
Stay tuned to Gadgets 360 as we'll be bringing you the best deals from this year's Prime Day sale next week.
