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

This is causing many people to jokingly detail all the savings they are receiving from Prime Day, simply because they are unable to buy anything.

Amazon says last year's Prime Day was its biggest sales day ever. Loop Capital's Anthony Chukumba believes that today will be "highly successful" for Amazon, and reiterated a $1,900 price target on the shares this morning. Workers in Spain are out on a three-day strike, meanwhile, while in Poland they are staging a work to rule, Verdi said.

Those attempting to shop on the Amazon app were treated to an image of a dog-such as a yellow Lab-and text that read, "UH-OH Something went wrong on our end". Amazon said it was trying to fix the problem. These deals only run from now until midnight on Tuesday, July 17 (in your local territory), and you need to be a member of Amazon Prime to take advantage of them. Wannabe buyers grew increasingly frustrated by the delay to their conspicuous consumption, with the outage issues worst in Amazon's home base of the US. Until now, though, most of their efforts have been centered on the critical holiday season.

"Way to go, Amazon.com". We really recommend Amazon's two home lines, Rivet and Stone & Beam, which are both super affordable.

Shoppers found an outlet in venting on social media. Amazon's Prime Day mid-summer sale offers discounts every 10 minutes and attracts tens of millions of shoppers each year.

The remaining 9 passengers drove themselves to the hospital, and the Fire Department reported their injuries were not as serious. At least 13 people have been injured after lava smashed through the roof of a tour boat following an explosion in Hawaii.

Amazon is facing another backlash, with sales that lasted less than two minutes, server crashes and questionable sale marketing practises, with some retailers now calling for an ACCC investigation into the United States retailers online sales practises.

It is too soon to tell, protest organizers said, how the workers' strikes might affect shipments throughout Europe.
