Amazon wised up, however: Last year, it said its Prime Day was its single-largest sales day of the year, exceeding 2016's Black Friday and Cyber Monday, and growing 60 percent year-over-year. As of now, Amazon's Prime Day event is currently celebrated in 17 countries, including India.

Several other brands like American Tourister, GAP, Caprese, Fastrack, Calvin Klein, Carlton London, Raymond, Tommy Hilfiger, Levi's, and Hidesign have also made a horde of exclusive items available for the 36-hour Prime sale. In the end Amazon was forced to issue an apology for the day's cockups.

The first 25 Prime Day deals have been revealed, and they looked pretty impressive.

"The only guaranteed losing play is to ignore it". However, like always the deals are meant for Prime members and the brand is offering discounts on wide range of products on its official website and application. What's interesting is that Amazon's own products, such as the Fire TV Stick, Echo smart speakers and Kindle tablets also see a good price cut.

It's highlighting discounts on its growing lineup of private label brands such as Stone & Beam, Rivet, Presto!, Wickedly Prime, and Goodthreads.

Whole Foods will be the biggest change to the 2018 show. If Amazon is going to offer any PlayStation hardware deals on Prime Day, they should be able to at least match those offers. if not outdo them. People took to social media to complain that they couldn't order items. While it does drum up sales during a traditionally slow month for retail, many question whether it's more about marketing than money.
