Amazon Prime Day 2018: The top United States deals in tech

Amazon Prime Day Sales: Top deals on smartphones, TVs, Amazon Echo and more

Amazon Prime Day Sales: Top deals on smartphones, TVs, Amazon Echo and more

The sale went live at 3pm Eastern Time, and it took less than three minutes for Twitter users to report sightings of Amazon's fluffiest dogs.

The hiccups could mute sales and send shoppers elsewhere on one of Amazon's busiest sales days. Sure, Amazon gets to flex its muscles over the retail industry and juice sales numbers. If you're trying to visit Amazon.com and find some Prime Day deals, you may see an error page. The ongoing Amazon Prime Day sale - that ends July 17 midnight - is all set to introduce launch explosive offers on Apple iPhones starting at 4 pm today. The service normally costs $99 a year.

According to DownDetector, most of the outages are centred on the US.

Alexa will also help Amazon Prime users earn discounts this Amazon Prime Day. "The bonus from the competition can be that there's no membership fee required, and you may get more bang for your buck if you get local stores to throw in a freebie like free installation", Woroch said.

Members spend $1,400 a year, compared to about $600 a year for non-members, according to market research firm Consumer Intelligence Research Partners. Don't have Prime? It's not too late to become a member.

There are, of course, a zillion other deals to be had, but if you want the very best deals, just head to Amazon's Device Deals page, which is where you're going to get the best discounts highlighted. Amazon disclosed for the first time this year that it had more than 100 million paid Prime members worldwide. Amazon CFO Brian Olsavsky called it "Christmas in July".

The 36-hour event was projected to break records again this year, with industry analysts estimating the company could make at least $3.4bn (£2.6bn) in sales.


Shares hit an all-time high of $1,827 Monday morning. Prime Day also lasts six hours longer than a year ago.

"Amazon is betting long term on voice-enabled commerce", Magid retail analyst Matt Sargent said previous year.

"The day creates a short-term urgency", said Barbara Khan, a marketing professor at Wharton who studies retail. Good luck to all those planning on taking advantage of the Prime Day deals. The sale will also bring-in additional discount on exchange under exchange offer which will be listed for products such as Moto G6, OnePlus 6, Samsung Galaxy Note 8, Vivo V7+, and the Vivo V9. "The only guaranteed losing play is to ignore it".

PRIVATE LABEL PUSH: Amazon has been building its own brands, and it'll be offering deals such as 25 percent off its Rivet furniture brand, which didn't exist a year ago.

Whole Foods will be the biggest change to the 2018 show.

This offer expires on July 31. Coming to cashback and instant discounts, Prime members can save big with 10% instant discount with HDFC Bank Debit & Credit Cards, 10 percent cashback on Amazon Pay balance.
