Best of Amazon Prime Day

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.
