Amazon's Prime Day runs into snags swiftly

Amazon's Prime Day runs into snags swiftly

First of all, if you're an Amazon Prime, you'll be able to take advantage of a bunch of hot deals on tech and other products.

At the time of writing, the below are pending prime day deals yet to be activated - Amazon Prime Day kicks off at 3pm EST.

Unlike the one-day sale for subscribers of Amazon Prime, which carries a yearly membership fee, Target says its sale is for "everybody", and will be held online, and in stores. Amazon is hoping its deals, available only to Prime members, are a hit with customers as it's raising the price of the program.

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. Prime Day also lasts six hours longer than past year.

"There's a much broader push this year, from discounts, to the type of inventory, and Amazon's marketing push as well", Ives said in an interview.

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. "If you look at membership over the last few years, it's grown significantly more than expectations".

Amazon Prime Day was established in 2015 to commemorate the 20th anniversary of Amazon. Other deals include 30 percent off its Mama Bear diapers and baby products.

The Verdi services union called the one-day strike to back its demand for labor contracts that guarantee healthy working conditions at fulfilment centers run by the world's largest e-commerce company. People might actually buy prime day stuff if your site wouldn't crash.
