Prime time: A day of deals at Amazon, and at its rivals

  • A study found that children viewed the decives as capable of friendship

Trouble on the site spiked just as the event began at 3 p.m.

Plus, many other chains offered sales and promotions to try to capitalize on the day.

Amazon has said it has more than 100 million paid Prime members worldwide.

Amazon acknowledged the technical glitches in a tweet Monday at 1:59 p.m. PT.

The issues weren't limited to shopping. The Echo Dot, for instance, is $20 off, bringing the already cheap Alexa speaker down to $29.99. Last November, for example, hundreds of Amazon workers in Italy and Germany went on strike, saying they were under "high pressure to create more and more in less time".

But Amazon touted Prime Day growth and said shoppers still found lots to buy, with tech gadgets in particular among the most popular.

Right now Amazon has a package deal for Xbox Game Pass for $59.99, which you can redeem and use immediately.

In a tweet the Amazon said it was working to resolve the issues quickly.

Feedvisor's estimates are based on results from its clients.

Antonio Conte: Chelsea sack Italian after two years in charge
Chelsea have sacked manager Antonio Conte after winning the Premier League and FA Cup during his two seasons in London. Conte departs a year before his contract was due to expire and will now be in line for £9million in compensation.

"They're supposed to be the best company in the world from a retail and e-commerce standpoint", said Sucharita Kodali, an ecommerce analyst at Forrester. Many complained about being unable to checkout or search for products, instead getting an error page with images of dogs. If you have plans to do some discount shopping during Prime Day, you'll need to complete your purchases by July 18 at 3:00 AM ET (12:00 AM PT).

Just a quick heads up that there's an Amazon Prime Day Deal for fifteen months of PlayStation Plus for £34.99, half the usual price. "We encourage anyone to come see for themselves by taking a tour at one of our fulfillment centers". "Someone has made a change and it's not compatible".

"Way to go, Amazon.com".

When the site has been online, the links on the main page advertising Prime Day deals have gone nowhere but back to the page.

But by June this year, Amazon had narrowed the gap significantly in these areas, according to research from Starcom.

Prime Day also usually helps boost the number of Prime memberships. Four new countries will be part of Prime Day this year: Australia, Luxembourg, the Netherlands and Singapore. And Kodali said Amazon has plenty of time to salvage the day.

Yes, they sure did.

Fire Tablet 7 for $29.99 ($20 off): Amazon's least-expensive Fire tablet got a generous price cut and is now selling at its Black Friday price.
