Amazon is turning 20 today, and is doing what online shops do when there's something to celebrate.
Yes, they're throwing in the goodies in the thousands from their mile-high internet stores with a dash of lightening deals, that too all through the day. There's a new deal every ten minutes, which means by the time you've read through one, a new one's staring at you.
While you're the best judge of what you need, in case you intend to make a killing, there are major discounts available on mobile phones and accessories that should get you really interested.
Shopping is scary, and today's no better. Word is out that Black Friday is now waving the white flag, capitulating to the army of deals that's marching in today. However, you don't get to play crusader until you sign up for something, and Amazon is asking you to do that in exchange of the goodies.
The birthday party is open for only Amazon's Prime customers who have paid £79 a year for exclusive services. These include free streaming of 15,000 movies and TV episodes, unlimited One-Day deliveries, unlimited photo storage in Amazon Cloud and over 8,00,000 books on Kindle Owners' Lending Library.
Prime members based in London can even enjoy one-hour deliveries of any product that features among the list of 10,000 everyday products on the Prime Now mobile app. For other products, same day deliveries are also available.
You can sign up for Prime today and begin a 30-day free trial in case you'd like to take a whiff of the birthday goodies. For a heads up, here’re the top five phones and accessories deals that are worth taking a look at:

While the deals being offered at Amazon today have been unprecedented in case of certain products, we are curious to note that Amazon's home grown Fire Phone has not been included in the list of gadgets so far. Either this means the phone has been removed from commercial business or that they do now want it to sell at a discount.
The answers will surely be interesting.
