It’s Prime Day — Here Are The Deals That Are Actually Worth It

We're nearing the end of Amazon Prime Day 2018, which means you have until the end of July 17 to get deals on all kinds of items from Amazon, including video games. In the audio products, this includes earphones, headphones and speakers from popular brands such as Bose, Philips, Sony and others. Many are shopping successfully - in the first hour of Prime Day in the USA, customers have ordered more items compared to the first hour previous year.

Inc. sales rose sharply during the first three hours of its Prime Day sales event, dispelling fears that the technical glitches that incensed shoppers would significantly hurt business.

What about non-Amazon devices?

"Below is a selection of deals members can expect to find on Prime Day", Amazon says. If you want an Alexa device with a screen, the Echo Show is a steal at $130 compared to the normal $230.

Amazon is offering early access to a variety of deals ahead of the official Prime Day start time.

Donald Trump backtracks on Helsinki remarks, says he 'misspoke'
On Tuesday , Trump said he misspoke and instead meant to say he didn't see any reason why it wouldn't be Russian Federation . And it will now be etched as part of Trump's presidency, no matter how many double negatives he tries to claim .

"I'm candidly shocked that they're not prepared for the traffic", Forrester analyst Sucharita Kodali said.

Small and medium businesses, which make up the majority of sellers on Amazon's global marketplaces, had already exceeded more than $1 billion in sales just 10 hours into the sale. Last year the company made £2.6bn out of Prime Day and this year it has been extended for the full 36 hours.

Prime Day, created by Amazon.com Inc.in 2015 to mark its 20th anniversary, has inspired other e-commerce companies to invent their own shopping holidays.

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". "No Prime Day specials at the store".

This week's strikes have also inspired widespread calls for shopper boycotts on social media platforms such as Twitter. According to One Click Retail, which measures ecommerce data, Amazon sold about $1 million worth of products a minute during peak time past year.
