Amazon's Prime Day landing page in India promises 'never before offers' on premium smartphones. The online retail giant is also promising 'rockbottom' prices on over 5,000 electronics products during its Prime Day sale this year.
Prime Day sale is also a great time to grab Amazon's own products. The sale will include discounts on Amazon Kindle, Fire TV Stick, and Amazon's Echo range of smart speakers. Amazon will also offer up to 50 percent discount on big-screen TVs and other home appliances. The sale will also include discounts on books, toys, and gaming consoles.

Amazon will also offer unlimited reward points with its Amazon Pay ICICI Bank credit card. No-cost EMI payment options will be available with select payment options.
