Amazon disclosed for the first time this year that it had more than 100 million paid Prime members worldwide.

First up, you can get four full months of Amazon Music Unlimited for just $0.99. This initiative came mostly to a head in 2017 with two major launches: the aforementioned Twitch Prime, which lets Amazon Prime subscribers enjoy some cosmetic and quality-of-life upgrades while watching other people play video games, and the Twitch desktop client, which includes a Steam-like digital-game interface. These are exclusive products launched early just for Prime members, giving you access before anyone else. Think of it like Black Friday, except its only for those signed up. Amazon says last year's Prime Day was its biggest sales day ever.

Ars' Jeff Dunn has already summed up a bunch of discounts and offers to expect this coming Prime Day, but in Twitch's case, we're looking at a Prime Fortnight.

To do this, set up the Amazon Shopping app on your phone, either through the App Store or Google Play Store.

If you're not an Amazon Prime member, the price to join is $119 for a year subscription, which is 20 percent higher than a year ago. Pro tip: You can also learn about deals through Amazon Echo by asking Alexa "What are my deals?"

The online retailer revealed that Prime Day will run for 36 hours in 2018, six more hours than previous year, and expand into new markets.

To help celebrate Amazon Prime Day 2018 (the corporate holiday that Hallmark wished they came up with), Twitch is giving away nearly a month's worth of games through their Twitch Prime service.

It's an open secret among deal-hunting gamers: Amazon is often the best place to buy new games.

Meanwhile, Target is offering a $5 gift card when you spend $25 or more on select household essential items. If you want instant notifications, download the Amazon Shopping app. So you'll have plenty of opportunity stock up on gifts or revamp your wardrobe while everything's heavily discounted.

Prime Day will also be held in the US, UK, Spain, Japan, Singapore, Canada, and 10 other countries on the same day.
