Best of Amazon Prime Day

Online retailer eBay, which has battled Amazon for years, hopes to get shoppers to reconsider joining Amazon's club by offering a week of exclusive deals beginning July 16 from hundreds of brands including Apple, Samsung and Adidas. In addition, for those of you who are itching to shop and save right now, Amazon is offer deals on select devices ahead of the main event.

Customers reported the retailer's website experienced issues at exactly the same time as the deals were scheduled to begin in the United States at 3 p.m. eastern time, with the site appearing to be down and responding with a 404 error. One deal we're watching started at noon and is 100% sold out, but we were able to join the Waitlist; another started at 12:30 pm and is 42% claimed.

You can set notifications for your favourite items to see if they come on sale, as well as preview deals before they go online. Granted, past year was the largest Prime Day event ever, racking up billions in sales, but the 2016 numbers also reiterated the conclusion - 77% of the deals were better, with 13% ties.

Amazon's website has been up and down since the start of Prime Day in the U.S. at 3 p.m. Eastern.

For the Amazon Prime Day promotions, the retail giant has discounted LEGO sets by up to 51% - meaning that fans can pick up the mighty LEGO Technic 42055 Bucket Wheel Excavator for nearly half price. A yearly membership costs $119.

The countdown is on for the global shopping event known as Amazon Prime Day. Some of will be lightning deals (only lasting a short period of time) but some will be available throughout Prime Day - including the very best in Bluetooth and wireless speaker action.

For tech products, prices will probably be slightly better around Black Friday, but this is a good mid-year opportunity to score some discounts.

Its members also spend more on the site than non-members.

Amazon's prices may not even be lower than the everyday prices found at rival retailers, according to 2017 research. It says customers bought more pencils, pens, notebooks, glue sticks, lunchboxes and backpacks on Prime Day last year than any other day of the year.

"Meet the dogs of Amazon", the site said, allowing users to click through and adorable mix of dogs with names like Soju, Barkley and Emma.
