If Amazon crashes again on Prime Day, eBay has your back

The sale name is a little dig at Amazon's performance issues previous year, that saw the site crash as it was flooded with eager customers. Amazon is offering "early Prime Day" savings on some private label grocery items. LIke Black Friday in July, the almighty online retailer is set to slash prices on some of the best household products, home goods, kitchen items, gadgets and more.

Target isn't the only e-commerce player looking to upstage Amazon on Prime Day. eBay on Wednesday announced plans to host a Crash Sale on July 15 "with even better deals if Amazon crashes again". When this happened previous year on Prime Day, some analysts estimated that the outage cost the company $90 million or more, according to TechCrunch. In a statement to SheKnows, Amazon said, "Stay tuned as we continue to reveal collaborations with actors, musicians, athletes and top brands including new Prime Day Launches and, of course, exclusive deals".

Amazon's Prime Day will return for the fifth time next month, and this year the discount holiday will run for two entire days. Members can look for savings on Amazon's products, Whole Foods items, new product launches and entertainment options. "Prime members have a chance to win tickets, so get entering now, and I hope to see you there!"

Are you ready for Amazon Prime Day 2019?


Amazon recently updated its Prime offering. Last year, Target had a one-day sale on its website, which the company said was the highest single day of traffic of the year.

Buyers whose orders are greater than $35 will obtain free two-day delivery or free NextDay delivery without a membership, relying on eligibility and the client's location.

The streamed concerts are a way for Amazon to not only sign up more Prime members and offer more perks to existing ones, but to also tout its Amazon Music service, which competes with other streaming music platforms such as Spotify.
