Amazon’s Prime Day Gets Off To Less Than ‘Epic’ Start

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

Amazon's website ran into some snags quickly today on its much-hyped Prime Day, an embarrassment for the tech company on the shopping holiday it created.

But if you choose to go via this route, do not forget to cancel your membership before the 30-day trial ends to avoid being billed the full £79 annual fee. QuietComfort 25 headphones are engineered to sound better, be more comfortable and easier to take with you. As Telsey Advisory Group's Joseph Feldman notes, the general boost in online traffic "should spill over to some competitors and boost sales on Prime Day", although he admits that "profitability may prove challenging, despite a well-planned counter-promotion". A company spokesman didn't immediately respond to an email. Amazon is hoping its deals, available only to Prime members, are a hit with customers as it's raising the price of the program. Some deals went live over the weekend for Prime members in advance of Prime Day.

This year's Prime Day kicked off on July 16 at 12pm and lasts for 36 hours - 6 hours longer than last year.

There are tons of other deals on TVs, monitors, memory cards, cables, battery packs, and a whole lot more, so be sure to check out everything Prime Day 2018 has to offer. "They backed off for a while but this year, they're all back - Best Buy, Targets stores".

Try Amazon Prime with a free 30-day membership and shop all the Prime Day deals and discounts. Just don't forget that in order to enjoy Prime Day, you have to be an Amazon Prime member.

An Amazon spokesperson was asked for a comment but 12 hours later we have not got any comment from Amazon Australia.
