Amazon's 48-Hour 'Prime Day' Event Takes Place July 15 and 16

For the last few years, Amazon has been hosting an epic Prime Day sale that offers up deals and discounts on a huge range of products.

This year, Prime Day is actually going to take place over two days, kicking off at midnight on July 15 and lasting through July 16. Last year's Prime Day ultimately lasted 36 hours, but 48 hours will be the longest Prime Day event to date.

Amazon has some Prime Day event previews on its website, and Prime Day itself will include discounts on everything from tech products to home products, clothing, toys, and more. Amazon is also highlighting products launching on Amazon on Prime Day, such as the Mophie Juice Pack Air.

When Prime Day kicks off, Amazon's website will be filled with lightning deals that kick off at different times over the course of the day, with the available products rotating over time. Lightning deals last for as long as stock lasts, and some of the better deals can go quick.

Last year, we did a live blog covering all of the best Apple-related deals available during Amazon's Prime Day, and we plan to do similar coverage this year so make sure to tune in to MacRumors on July 15 and 16 for help sorting through all of the sales.

Prime Day sales are designed for Amazon Prime members, and a Prime membership is required to get the deals. Prime Day discounts will be available to Amazon customers in the United States, UK, Italy, India, Germany, France, China, Canada, Australia, Belgium, UAE, Austria, Spain, Singapore, and the Netherlands.

Great, more random garbage.
Can’t wait to not spend money on Chinese garbage that I can buy on AliExpress for way less!
If you guys don’t care about this, why would you guys even comment?

Last time I check, your iPhone is still made in China.

Except, Your argument doesn’t make sense in response to those members, because an iPhone is not cheap Chinese made garbage, it’s a fairly expensive device with high company standards, some of these items that are on Prime days is relatively cheap junk, but to each their own what they considered junk.

What a bunch of negative nellies here. You guys are like the old men that sit in the balcony on the muppet show. I like Amazon and I love their offerings... their marketplace has changed e-commerce like Apple changed smartphones. It's hard to beat their prices, and it's impossible to beat same-day delivery and or next-day delivery. I can order something before noon where I live, and it's at my front door between 5-9pm.

If you don't like the deals, don't buy anything.
