Amazon Prime Day 2018 Nintendo Switch Gaming Bundle Mystery Deal

Batesville, In. - Amazon Prime Day 2018 begins at 3 p.m. Monday, July 16.

Packages ride on a conveyor system at an Amazon fulfillment center in Baltimore on August 3, 2017.

Amazon.com kicked off its big Prime Day sales promotion in the United States with technical glitches on its website and app, threatening its 36-hour sales extravaganza. "Sorry, something went wrong", reads the error message. In many cases the unions have called on buyers to boycott Amazon on Prime Day to show their support.

Shares of Amazon fell 1.5% in after-hours trading. Some people were seeing the "dogs of Amazon" notification, while others said they could add items to their cart but that the Prime Day discount price wasn't reflected at checkout.

In an email to The Associated Press, it said "many are shopping successfully" and that in the first hour of Prime Day in the US, customers ordered more items than in the same time frame past year.

Now here's the interesting bit: The Best Price Guarantee is valid for Amazon Prime Day deals (provided the same product is available on eBay for a higher price.) This means you can score an extra 5% off the huge Amazon Prime Day discounts.

Packages move along a conveyor belt at the Amazon.com Inc. fulfillment center in Robbinsville, New Jersey, June 7, 2018. That might be because Amazon's storefront is down - according to many of us at CNET and a host of reports on social media - at a rather unfortunate time for the company. Maybe too many people were inspired by the free concerts by middle-aged British boy band Take That, or the parallel event in NY by Ariana Grande, to promote Prime day. Prior to the commencement of the sale, Amazon India gave glimpse of the offers and deals on products like electronics, smartphones, and much more. There you find a Prime Day deal on the Lego Incredibles.
