Does Amazon's Prime Day really offer the best prices?

But the deals are better than what shoppers might find on Black Friday, according to Amazon Prime members spend on average $1,100 on the site throughout the year compared to $600 spent by non members, according to CIRP.

To participate in Prime Day, you must be a Prime member.

Items selling out lightning-fast plagued Prime Day's inaugural event back in 2015.

Continuing checking into the Daily Dealer over the next day to see a running list of the day's top deals! Shares of department and physical retailing stores like Macy's were mostly down on Friday in anticipation of the Prime Day's effect on Amazon shares. The online retailer is promising "hundreds of thousands" of deals with new bargains popping up every five minutes.

It kicked off at 9 p.m. on Monday and runs until 3 a.m. on July 12.

For each of the six days, a category of products are featured.

John said it's not so much the items bought on Prime Day, it's the potential memberships that come after.

It should be noted that each deal has a time limit, meaning that some will become defunct during the next 24hrs.

Prices of Apple products on Amazon Prime have been dropped considerably. iPhone 7 in black color and 32 GB storage capacity is priced at Rs. 42,999.

In addition to its massive distribution hubs, which are known as "fulfillment centers", Amazon has built at least 58 warehouses specifically for Prime deliveries in dense urban areas.

Normally, Prime membership costs $99 a year, but if you only want it for a shorter period, there is a $10.99 monthly subscription available too.

Starting tonight around 6pm PT, you'll start seeing Amazon Prime Day deals appear.

You must keep in mind to cancel the subscription afterwards if you do not want to continue with it. Heck, you can rake in the deals and you don't even have to leave the comfort of your own computer. While it may be a good time to buy something you've been wanting to try at a discounted price, Benjamin Glaser - an editor with DealNews - told CNN Tech to hold off on big ticket items.

"We believe this event is becoming increasingly important not only for Amazon, but for the entire e-commerce industry", wrote Ed Yruma, managing director at KeyBanc Capital Markets, in a Prime Day primer.

Anyway, eBay does have some anti-Prime Day deals going down, including $28.49 Dolce and Gabbana cologne that you can use to impress someone special, a $250 Diamondback hybrid bike, a really, really nice vacuum for $239.99 and a full-body massage chair.
