Amazon.com announced Thursday (June 29) that its third-annual Prime Day, in which it rolls out hundreds of thousands of deals only for Prime members will be held July 11.
In a press release, the eCommerce giant announced that members will have access to deals for 30 hours, with new deals announced every five minutes. According to the company, Prime Day has expanded to 13 countries this year. Members will find millions of items in stock, including deals from thousands of small businesses and entrepreneurs.
“Our members love Prime Day, and we have been thrilled by the response over the last two years. It is inspiring us to make it even better this year for Prime members,” said Greg Greeley, vice president of Amazon Prime in the press release. “Every part of our business is working to deliver more deals for a record number of shoppers. This year’s Prime Day is too big for 24 hours – so we’re giving Prime members 30 hours to shop!”
Amazon said that during Prime Day customers will be able to find deals organized by more than 20 of the most-shopped-for themes, including pet products, garden tools and tech gear. Users can also use their voices to do the shopping with expanded Alexa-only deals for Prime Members who have an Echo, Echo Dot, Echo Show, Amazon Tap and compatible Fire TV or Fire tablet. Shoppers can also track and watch deals with the Amazon app that enables customers to preview, track and shop the deals from their mobile device. What’s more, the retailer said Prime members in China and Mexico can shop local deals, as well as select deals from other countries from the Amazon Global Store. Prime Day will include TV deals, with a variety of great brands, including the all-new Element 4K Ultra HD Smart LED TV – Amazon Fire TV Edition. Amazon is planning one of its largest total-volume TV deals in history, with a record level of inventory, but once again, the TV deals will probably sell out, the company said in the release.
