Amazon's Prime Day runs into snags swiftly

Amazon's Prime Day runs into snags swiftly”

Last year, the e-commerce juggernaut's holiday, which first debuted in 2015, reportedly generated $2.4 billion in sales, according to Coresight Research. We'll continue to update this as we come across more worthwhile deals.

Amazon Prime Day will officially start at midday today (16 July) on the Amazon website, lasting for 36 hours in total before the offers end at midnight on the 17th July.

Amazon Prime Day, now in its third year, is a special day in which Prime members - who fork over $119 annually - can get deals on items and gifts cards offered through the e-retailer.

Lunch Time Deals: 4 Months Of Amazon Music For 99 Cents
Amazon Prime Day sale will include top deals and flat discounts on a wide range of products across all the categories on Amazon. The offer can be redeemed on the brand's Amazon product page (maximum one free box per order).

Alexa will also help Amazon Prime users earn discounts this Amazon Prime Day. Last November, for example, hundreds of Amazon workers in Italy and Germany went on strike, saying they were under "high pressure to create more and more in less time". To keep with Amazon's prime day sale, Flipkart is also scheduled to host a sale starting from today onwards till July 19.

The global company that sells everything (except decaf Nescafe Azera - sort it out, lads) started giving intermittent 404 messages at the start of the U.S. sale saying "something went wrong at our end".

Prime Day is expected to be one of the biggest sales days of the year for Amazon. Other users were sent back to the Prime Day homepage whenever they tried to go to category pages; or, if they were able to add Prime Day deals to their cart, they received an error message when they tried to check out. Maybe you've just picked up one of the best Xbox One bundle deals, and are pondering what else might elevate your new console experience to decadent new heights. "They've got the Amazon Echos and the Dots and the little Amazon tablets in there".

The 29-year-old defender of the Croatian national team said in his statement that he had "no political message" in his statement. Switzerland captain Stephan Lichtsteiner was warned and fined 5,000 Swiss francs ($5,050) for joining in the celebration.

Not to mention the 20% off selected AmazonBasics products, 50% off selected Amazon Video movie purchases, 20% off selected products from Amazon Brands, 20% off Amazon Warehouse Deals and up to 54% off certified refurbished Amazon devices. If you have been wanting to needlessly spend money in the middle of the summer on stuff, the next day and a half were made for you.

Amazon's Fire TV will also get discounts during this sale.

The Amazon Fire TV Stick is a media streaming dongle, just like Google Chromecast.
