It’s Prime Day — Here Are The Deals That Are Actually Worth It

Lots of our staff used Prime Day as a way to get lots of common household goods on sale. Chains like Macy's, Nordstrom, Best Buy, Walmart, and Target planned to roll out their own promotions, said Charlie O'Shea, lead retail analyst at Moody's.

Shoppers in the United States and elsewhere in the world are struggling to access e-commerce giant Amazon's website as one of its biggest annual sales, Prime Day, got underway.

Prime Day also usually helps boost the number of Prime memberships. Amazon did not offer an explanation for what caused the Monday issues.

Amazon launched Prime Day in 2015 and by 2017 it was its second biggest shopping day, topped only by Cyber Monday.

Jason Goldberg, senior vice president of commerce at Publicis.Sapient, noted that the problems could turn off shoppers for a while, particularly those who planned to sign up for Prime membership.

Even though Amazon says it sold more during the first hour of this year's event compared to last year, it remains to be seen whether or not the site's technical difficulties will significantly impact its overall Amazon Prime Day results for this year.

Amazon Prime Day 2018 is underway today, Monday July 16.

"Only (Amazon) will know the impact because the glitch affected their conversion rate, but probably not overall sales which were trending up anyway", she said in an email Tuesday.

Bezos is now the world's richest person, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index.

Eighty percent of the anti-aging cream's reviews are four and five stars, and the top-selling moisturizer has racked up a reputation for reducing wrinkles (especially the forehead "thinking line"), fading under eye bags, and making skin smoother and more youthful-looking.

"We had a ruff start", Amazon said.

Two retailers have told ChannelNews that they are set to call for an Australian Competition & Consumer Commission investigation into the Prime Day sale.
