Philadelphia Eagles mock Amazon over Prime Day outages

The company said it sold millions of devices that work on the Alexa voice-activated platform, with top-sellers including the Fire TV Stick streaming device with an Alexa Voice remote and the Echo Dot voice-activated speaker. Shoppers have lots of options, as many other chains have offered sales and promotions to try to capitalize on the Prime Day spending.

While the site seemed to be up and running again within an hour or so for most people, social media exploded with disappointment at opening Amazon's website and finding the dogs instead of deals. If you are an Amazon Prime member, you'll have a limited time to act if you want to secure some of these member-exclusive deals for yourself.

There are even some money-making opportunities during Prime Day. It's chaos, but attractive chaos, and if you haven't ever signed up for Amazon Prime yet, you should do that now (for a free trial, no less!) to prepare for all the sick deals.

"I'm candidly shocked that they're not prepared for the traffic", Forrester analyst Sucharita Kodali said.

Writer removed from summit event says he only had a question
When finally asked what he thought of Trump's behavior with Putin, Emanuel spent more than 3½ minutes giving his thoughts. By Tuesday afternoon when he faced the cameras, Trump had changed tack.

Amazon said sales in the first 10 hours of Prime Day grew at a faster pace than the same period of the event in 2017. "They backed off for a while but this year, they're all back - Best Buy, Targets stores". "No Prime Day specials at the store".

The sale went live at 3pm Eastern Time, and it took less than three minutes for Twitter users to report sightings of Amazon's fluffiest dogs. Amazon increased the annual Prime membership by 20 percent to $119 in May 2018. The unions that represent the warehouse workers, Comisiones Obreras and Verdi services union, say they are calling for better working conditions, pay, and health benefits.

Amazon started Prime Day to celebrate its 20th anniversary in 2015. According to One Click Retail, which measures ecommerce data, Amazon sold about $1 million worth of products a minute during peak time previous year.
