Amazon Prime Day, Amazon's annual shopping event will begin at 3 AM ET / 12:00 PT on Tuesday, July 12th, and continue through Wednesday, July 13th, according to the company.

A prior earnings call had confirmed that it would be July. However, Amazon Prime subscribers now know when their clocks should go off.

Prime Day this year is a few weeks later than last year but it will still be held in summer, unlike when Amazon delayed it until October 2020 during the peak of the pandemic.

It may also be the best time to save money if you are in the market for tech, toys, or home goods. We can almost guarantee we will see the lowest prices on Amazon's products and discounts on a variety of tech.

Amazon will begin offering early deals starting June 21st. They will be offering up to a 55 percent discount on a variety of Amazon devices, including the Kindle Paperwhite and the fourth-generation Echo Dot.

Amazon did not provide any details about the products on offer but stated that it would have "the lowest prices ever" for select Beats, Bose, and Sony products.

We can expect that many of the deals will be in the form of noise-canceling headphones and robot vacuums.

Amazon will offer a variety of promotions, including free games via Prime Gaming and discounts on Amazon Music Unlimited. Prime Day deals are still available for Prime members who live in the US.

They also offer Prime Day deals to Prime members from other countries such as Australia, Brazil, Canada, and China. Amazon says that it will host Prime Day events in India and Saudi Arabia later this summer.

Prime Day arrives at a difficult time for Amazon, despite the excitement surrounding it. Many reports have been made about the terrible working conditions faced by Amazon's delivery drivers and warehouse workers since the huge influx of online shoppers during the pandemic.

The Amazon Labor Union (ALU), which represents warehouse workers, is now working to unionize more warehouses as Amazon continues to be under scrutiny by the New York State government for its treatment of employees.

While Prime Day will undoubtedly bring about a flood of discounts and deals, it also increases the workload for warehouse workers and delivery drivers.

Some have skipped breaks to meet quotas. We will have to wait to see if the year ahead is any different, particularly with New York moving closer to reducing Amazon's production quotas.
