What is Amazon Prime Day?
Prime Day was originally launched in 2015 to celebrate Amazon’s 20th anniversary. However, what started as a simple anniversary sale in 2015 has grown into a global deal-a-thon with sales that exceed $1 billion. Amazon Prime Day offers sitewide discounts on everything from Kindles to HDTVs. The sale has been such a massive success that for the past two years Amazon has kept extending it and adding more deals.
When is Prime Day 2019?
Prime Day 2019 may kick off Monday, July 15, according to home improvement website RealHomes. Here at Physical Products Reviews Guide our sources also indicate that Prime Day may start on or around July 15. Assuming Prime Day starts on Monday (as it has the last two years), Prime Day 2019 may stretch from July 15 through end of July 16. Other sources tell Physical Products Reviews Guide that Prime Day could start as early as July 12. Keep in mind that Amazon hasn’t officially announced a Prime Day date. (We’ve reached out to Amazon for comment and will update our story accordingly).
When will Amazon announce an official Prime Day date?
In the past, Amazon has typically released Prime Day’s date during the last week of June. However, last year it waited until July 3 at 1am ET to announce Prime Day 2018. It’s safe to say the retailer will likely follow a similar pattern this year and announce Prime Day 2019 during the first week of July.
What time will Prime Day deals begin?
The first two Prime Day events started at 2:59am (ET) with new deals released every 10 to 5 minutes. Since then, Amazon has tweaked Prime Day’s kick off time. 2019 might be the year Prime Day starts at 12pm ET. Here’s a quick history of previous Prime Day start times.
Like Black Friday, Prime Day has grown from a 24-hour celebration to a full-on shopping frenzy complete with its own countdown. Prime Day 2017 was a 30-hour event (up 6 hours from the previous year), and Prime Day 2018 was a 36-hour event. This could be the year that Prime Day goes 48 hours or longer.
