Amazon Prime Day 2018 kicks off with glitches

Xbox Game Pass

"We have been humbled by the response from Prime members to Prime Day in Australia, with demand exceeding our expectations, and sales surpassing Boxing Day on the first day", says Amazon Australia Country Manager Rocco Braeuniger.

Shoppers who went to the site looking to grab a sweet deal were greeted with images of cute dogs, and a message that read, "Sorry, something went wrong on our end". From now until 3 a.m. EST you can still shop some of the best deals of the year.

This is the biggest Prime Day yet.

Another of the top-rated anti-aging brand's products with a special Amazon Prime Day Lightening Deal is the Total Repair Eye Gel for Dark Circles and Puffiness, now reduced by 20% as well.

Prime Day is one of Amazon's most important days of the year, when it hosts Black Friday-like deals in the middle of July. The snags were an embarrassment for the tech company on the much-hyped shopping holiday it created.

For what remains of Prime Day, Amazon is giving 20% off anything in its Warehouse to its Prime members.

Amazon Prime Day 2018 sale is all set to kick start from 12PM IST today onwards that promises to proffer unmatched 36-hours of exciting offers and lighting deals for the Indian buyers.

Theresa May is pleasing no one with her Brexit balancing act
Tory MP and Remainer Heidi Allen said she wished the prime minister had "faced down the amendments". Negotiations in the meantime are ongoing in Brussels this week.

Unai Sordo, CCOO's secretary general, said in a Twitter post on Monday that Amazon must resume negotiations and guarantee the workers' "unquestionable rights".

"It wasn't all a walk in the (dog) park, we had a ruff start - we know some customers were temporarily unable to make purchases", Amazon said in a statement.

The first 25 Prime Day deals have been revealed, and they looked pretty impressive.

What about non-Amazon devices?

Prime Day 2018 is officially underway for shoppers, hours after the United Kingdom deals already started circulating.

In Germany, six sites were hit by a strike on Tuesday with the work stoppage due to continue on Wednesday at the Leipzig depot. As Feldman notes, Target said last year that it saw strong growth even its regular price business around Prime Day last year.
