Amazon is 20 years old today.
To celebrate its birthday, the online retailer has invited all Prime members to a birthday bash. It isn't a party but rather a day-long event filled with mega sales. Amazon announced earlier this month that it would be running several deals on its birthday (what it calls "Prime Day"), and now we know what some of those deals include.
Amazon gave us a sneak peek at a few of the biggest deals ahead of the event starting and here they are. Some you'll find as day-long discounts, others as part of its Prime Day Lightning Deals.
What is Prime Day?
Prime Day is a one-day-only sale event held on 15 July. It's exclusive to Prime members around the globe and will consist of more deals than what Black Friday typically offers. Prime Day will happen in countries offering Prime, so that includes: US, UK, Spain, Japan, Italy, Germany, France, Canada, and Austria.
If you're not a Prime member, you can still up for the free 30-day trial in order to take advantage of the day. The deals will start at midnight, giving you the chance to snap up a bargains across Amazon. The deals cover electronics, toys, films, clothes, garden, sports, and even outdoor equipment.
