Amazon announces Prime Day is July 15th, will offer more deals than Black Friday

To mark its 20th anniversary, massive online retailer Amazon will embark on what it’s calling “a global shopping event that promises to have more deals than Black Friday.”

The so-called Prime Day is July 15th and is exclusively reserved for Amazon Prime members living in Canada, the U.S., the U.K., Spain, Japan, Italy, Germany, France and Austria. This two-day shipping extravaganza starts at midnight with new deals pegged to be available as often as every ten minutes. Basically, Amazon wants you to stay up all day and spend lots of money.

Greg Greeley, VP of Amazon Prime, said, “Prime Day is a one-day only event filled with more deals than Black Friday, exclusively for Prime members around the globe. Members tell us every day how much they love Prime and we will keep making it better. If you’re not already a Prime member, you’ll want to join so you don’t miss out on one of the biggest deals extravaganzas in the world.”

There might be some good deals on tech—perhaps some unlocked smartphones, tablets, and accessories. In addition, since Amazon Canada recently launched a dedicated wearable section, there might possibly be some discounted smartwatches and fitness bands.
