This is the 3rd year Amazon has had their Amazon Prime Day deals. To be honest, many people were disappointing especially the first year as there were not many deals to be had and the items that were discounted were not that desirable. Amazon has learned from this but last year their top discounted items went out of stock really quickly. I mean it went out in seconds! However, if you have been eying Amazon product line such as the Amazon Echo, Echo Dot, Echo Tap, Fire TV, Fire TV Stick, Fire Pad, or Kindle, then you may be in luck!
Here are some Q and A on Amazon Prime Day
When: Amazon Deals start 9pm Eastern Time on July 10 for 30 hours
What: A little bit of everything from all categories will be discounted highlighted by Amazon’s own product line
How: In my opinion, Amazon set up this day to ramp up sales and help merchants get rid of inventory during July as it is distant from Christmas shopping season. They invite merchants to participate by cutting their prices down significantly to be featured.

Will the Amazon App and Website have the same deals? Yes it will.
How to get the best out of my Alexa? Amazon is offering additional discount if you order using Alexa. If you place an order $20 or more, you get $10 credit if you order from Alexa. Not only this, you have access to deals 2 hours early.
