Prime members will be able to purchase a range of products from major brands – such as Dyson, PlayStation, Xiaomi, SK-II, LEGO – at discounted prices. Separately, Amazon also invited members of the public to attend its first-ever Prime Day Pit Stop event in Singapore from 9-10 and 12-13 July, where they could win amazon.sg gift cards and other prizes by playing carnival games.

According to data from YouGov BrandIndex, Amazon Prime’s Ad Awareness score rose from a low of 7.8 on 4 Jun to a high of 18.7 by 23 Jun. Ad Awareness is a BrandIndex metric that measures the percentage of people who have seen adverts from a particular brand in the previous two weeks.
