Amazon's website crashes as soon as Prime Day sale begins, users report

Highsnobiety

Most of Amazon's device lineup has been discounted in the lead up to Prime Day proper.

Amazon Prime Day kicks off here in a couple of hours and runs for a good 36 hours or so. But it's not just Amazon offering blowout sales this week.

There is no doubt in our minds that this deal will sell out, but hopefully Amazon will keep offering it at this price with delayed shipping until the end of the day on Tuesday.

How to become Amazon Prime member? More than three out of four Prime members - a group that now numbers more than 100 million globally - plan to take part, AlixPartners found. This is longer than in the past and could mean more deals to go around than during previous sales.

And if you're looking for some extra stellar markdowns, we have a curated "Best Deals" section, just for you. "In other words, fighting the margin battle is a no-win situation for most mid- to smaller-tier retailers".

Fans Finally Get Their ‘Uncharted’ Dream Casting In A Short Film
So director Allan Ungar chose to just go ahead and give the fans what they want in a fifteen-minute fan film, anyway. The film seems to have captured the same fantastic combo of action and humor as the Uncharted games themselves.

Dash buttons have seen some significant discounts as well.

While Amazon doesn't disclose sales figures for Prime Day, Deborah Weinswig, CEO of Coresight Research, had estimates it will generate $3.4 billion in sales worldwide, up from an estimated $2.4 billion previous year. This can give the rival a key advantage when holiday shopping season rolls around, and brand loyalty is critical since Amazon now captures almost 50 percent of all online spending in the USA, according to Emarketer Inc.

Amazon Fulfillment Center in Dupont Wash. As of now, Amazon's Prime Day event is currently celebrated in 17 countries, including India. The company ruffled feathers earlier this year when it upped the annual price of a Prime membership from $99 to $119.

From their site: "To share Prime benefits and digital content between adults, both adults must link their accounts through Amazon Household and agree to share payment methods".

Prime Day 2017 grew by more than 60 percent over the prior year, the company said. It's the first Prime Day with Whole Foods, Amazon's most expensive acquisition. Amazon promises an additional 10 percent off hundreds of sale items at Whole Foods and deeper discounts on some popular products. This also saves you the trouble of signing up to Amazon Prime.
