Target is unleashing its own super-sale to battle Prime Day

Australia’s First Amazon Prime Day Is Happening Today And Promises Great Gaming Deals Shannon Grixti

Of course, Amazon probably wants this to be resolved as quickly as we do, and it seems the company has added a sort of captcha verification to access the website. We're not certain this is due to the same overload, but it does seem odd. Other than the annual subscription of Rs 999 a year, you can subscribe to Amazon Prime by paying just Rs 129 a month. It says customers bought more pencils, pens, notebooks, glue sticks, lunchboxes and backpacks on Prime Day last year than any other day of the year.

Amazon Web Services, the company's cloud-computing division, reported global problems with its AWS Management Console, one of its tools. Workers in Spain are out on a three-day strike, meanwhile, while in Poland they are staging a work to rule, Verdi said. But if you act on Prime Day, you can snag a new pair of Bose headphones form Amazon.

Amazon also faced labor issues.

Despite the litany of issues, Amazon said Tuesday that sales in the first 10 hours grew at a faster pace than during the same period of 2017's event.

Prime Day starts Monday afternoon.

The Prime Day computer glitch - which appeared to be the most widespread to date - and worker strikes added up to a spate of bad news for the online giant, which has been heavily promoting its discount event for weeks.

Shoppers found an outlet in venting on social media.

Despite Prime Day's place as a one-merchant summer sale, it has, since its 2015 inception become one of the biggest shopping days of the year as the company attempts to create its own version of 'Singles Day' the Chinese festival worshipping the God of reckless spending.

Instead of deeply discounted consumer electronics and appliances and other sale items, shoppers were treated to photos of dogs tipped to belong to Amazon employees. And Kodali said Amazon has plenty of time to salvage the day.

It also said Amazon fulfilment center jobs offered competitive pay and comprehensive benefits from the first day of employment.
