“We are super excited that members can start discovering joy early ahead of Prime Day and earn cashbacks everytime they shop,” said Amit Agarwal, senior VP and country manager at Amazon India.

Amazon, that generally holds Prime Day across all markets simultaneously, will conduct the sale event in other markets later during the year.
