Amazon Prime Day 2019: Dates, best deals, what's new”

Those are three classic hallmarks of a Prime Day deal.

Amazon's Prime Day is back on Monday July 15 - but now the discount frenzy will last a whole two days.

If Amazon's website ends up crashing like it did past year as a result of the deluge of customer traffic, eBay will then put its "Crash Sale" into action and announce even more deals than it's already unveiled as part of a series of discounts that begin starting July 1.

Amazon was originally founded on July 16, 1995.

The company says Amazon Prime Day 2019 will offer up Alexa products, SmartTV's and a slew of other tech products.

And this year will be the longest Prime Day event ever, running for 48 hours - up from 36 hours last year. It's a cheap TV, it's also an Amazon device, sort of, and it's only available to Prime members. Though Amazon does not disclose the final tally from the event, reports have estimated that sales hit $4.19 billion globally in 2018, up almost 74% from the previous year.

"If history repeats itself and Amazon crashes that day, eBay's wave of can't-miss deals on some of the season's top items will excite customers around the world", the online auction site wrote in its announcement. Of those Prime members intending to shop on Prime Day, almost three-quarters plan to shop the electronics category (71% U.S., 72% U.K.); 58% of USA members (31% U.K.) plan to buy clothing; and 56% of US members (58% U.K.) plan to shop home goods. Last Prime Day, small and medium-sized businesses selling in Amazon's stores surpassed $1.5 billion in sales.

The company appears to be taking the marketing of Prime Day very seriously.

"Get ready, as we pull back the curtain to reveal exclusive products, special performances and two full days of phenomenal deals this Prime Day", said Jeff Wilke, CEO, Amazon worldwide consumer. Every year it seems the internet debates on whether or not Amazon really offered up some good deals.

Amazon held its first Prime Day during July 2015, in celebration of the online retailer's 20th anniversary. 3Doodler, for example, will offer its Create+ Pen Set for $64.99 ($79.99 regular), its Start Essentials Pen Set for $39.99 ($49.99 regular), the Create Pen for $49.99 and Star Trek Pen for $49.99 ($68.95 regular). Stay tuned for more Prime Day 2019 deals.
