Speakers, TVs, Kleenex in demand on Amazon Prime Day

The team at Sale Ninja are updating their website with the best Furniture Prime Day deals on an hourly basis.

Instead of focusing exclusively on Prime members, who pay Amazon's $119 annual subscription, this year Soapboax opted to leverage the flood of onlookers shopping for bargains and expanded its pool of potential customers. Almost every device Amazon makes is now available at a deep discount, and you'll find every single one of them below.

PRIVATE LABEL PUSH: Amazon has been building its own brands, and it'll be offering deals on those, especially its clothing brands, analysts have said.

The big problems seem to have occurred in the USA, where some even report their Alexa devices misbehaving and Instant Video streams crashing, though this seems coincidental as that would suggest the whole of Amazon Web Services (AWS) was struggling which would have been far more serious.

Prime Day deals are live and the experts at Sale Ninja are monitoring Amazon to find the best deals on a wide range of furniture from office chairs to beds for Prime Day 2018.

Looking for more? Step right this way, sir/madam. The company says it gathered more members for the subscription service on July 16 than it has on any previous day in its history. In the late 1990s, two former Amazon employees - a husband and wife team - brought their Welsh corgi, Rufus, to work.

That's probably not really surprising, given the event's extended hours, the fact it was offered in four additional markets, and traffic that was so heavy it overwhelmed the company's servers at times-but it underscores how influential Amazon is on shopper's buying habits. With predictions the company would rack up record sales over the 36-hour run, retail rivals were scrambling to offer competing deals.

Amazon also faced labor issues.

There's no question that this year's Prime Day was Amazon's biggest.

Given the slow initial uptake of Amazon in Australia, the e-commerce giant has a strong incentive to boost Prime membership and, subsequently, sales Down Under. Target's one-day sale made Tuesday its most successful sales day of the year. Amazon later confirmed its website was having issues that left many unable to purchase items, though it didn't elaborate on the cause.

"Most brands increase ad spending on Prime Day", Hull said, adding that they saw as much as a 30 per cent lift in search volume and brand engagement on Google and Facebook that day as shoppers browse before making an online purchase.
