Everything you need to know about the Amazon Digital Day event
This will be Amazon’s third such annual event, and it promises big savings to potential buyers.
“Digital Day offers great end-of-year deals on digital content across Amazon—arriving just in-time to stock-up on content for your newly gifted devices,” the online retailer said in a post announcing the event.
Amazon will have massive expectations for its Digital Day event, considering that it has already declared Cyber Monday 2018 to be its biggest-ever sales day.
Some of the deals will be available on Dec. 26, but the online retailer says the “the biggest savings” will start at 12 a.m. Eastern on Dec. 28. If you want Amazon to notify you when the deals start, visit the Digital Day landing page.
Once the deals are live, they will be available via Amazon’s Digital Day page, the Amazon App store and the Amazon App. You can also shop Digital Day deals from your Fire tablet, Kindle, and Fire TV.

In an exclusive deal for Audible members, Amazon will be offering “buy one, get one free” deals on “hundreds” of Audible books.
Could Digital Day help with flattening Prime membership growth?
The offers from the Amazon Digital Day event surely sound like good deals, so start making the list of the new games, books, movies, apps, eBooks and more that you want to buy.
“We’re excited to help customers add new apps, games, movies, eBooks, Audible books, and more to their current device or the latest Amazon Fire tablet, Fire TV, or Kindle they just received over the holidays,” Vice President of Digital, App, and Game Services Aaron Rubenson said in a press release.
With the Amazon Digital Day event, the online retailer aims to take on the offers brick-and-mortar retailers will come up with to lure buyers. Amazon will also be hoping the event provides a much-needed boost to its U.S. Prime membership, which is showing signs of flattening. Over the past 12 months, U.S. Prime memberships have increased just 8%, which is the lowest since Consumer Intelligence Research Partners started tracking it in 2012. Amazon’s U.S. Prime membership is estimated to be at 97 million.
