Amazon prime day is almost here. The annual shopping event that was launched in 2015 has quickly grown into a major “shopping holiday.” In 2019, the Prime Day event will run for 48 hours, beginning at midnight Pacific time on July 15 and ending at midnight July 17.
The concept behind Amazon Prime Day is to create a “Black Friday” scale sales event, but it’s exclusive to Amazon and specifically to Amazon Prime members. More than 1 million different deals are expected to be available including discounts on Alexa enabled devices. Therefore, if you are not an Amazon prime member, you will need to sign up to take advantage of the deals.

What’s on Sale?
Historically speaking, a vast array of consumer electronics are available at a discount on Amazon Prime Day. You’ll see deals on TVs, speakers, subwoofers, headphones, and more. There’s also likely to be deals on accessories such as TV wall mounts, TV stands, speaker stands, and more.
One tip for Amazon Prime shoppers is to create an Amazon wish list and add the products you are interested to it, this will let you see which items go on sale once Prime Day is here.
