Amazon Prime Day has surpassed Black Friday as the tech giant's biggest shopping event of the year, but by creating a new shopping holiday out of thin air, Amazon is also giving its top competitors more business during what can be a slow season. Deals go live at 3 p.m. ET and run through midnight on Tuesday. Some deals will be lightning deals (only lasting a short period of time) but some will continue throughout the sale. We'll leave that debacle with Amazon's marketing team. Be sure to have your notifications turned to "on" in the settings section of the app, however, if you want to receive notifications. There is also flash sale on Echo Spot besides deals on latest smart home products such as Alexa enabled smart plugs, lights, cameras, etc.

Select TV brands are also eligible for a 100 per cent cashback for Prime users buying the Fire TV Stick as well, when both purchases are made from Amazon Pay balance.

This is the biggest Prime Day yet. Instead of basing decisions strictly on the percentage of the discount.

In particular, it's a great opportunity for the company to sell more of its Echo, Fire and other Amazon Alexa products, which normally see some pretty remarkable markdowns. Good luck to all those planning on taking advantage of the Prime Day deals.

Echo Dots are available for $30, $20 off.

Amazon isn't the only place offering deals, other retailers are offering discounts to compete with Prime Day. The savings event this year is running longer than prior years, available for shoppers in more countries, and Amazon is promising a million deals - the most yet - for Prime members.

For the first time, Prime members in India will also have access to hundreds of top worldwide Prime Day deals from across 17 countries. Amazon Prime users will also be able to avail a Kindle Unlimited subscription at a discounted price of Rs 1,388, down from the regular Rs 2,388 fee.

Customers reacted with anger and confusion to the site issues, some even going as far as to threaten cancelling their Prime memberships due to the problem.
