Amazon Prime Day starts tonight; how to grab the deep discount deals

The more Amazon can continue growing its apparel sales and build up a reputation for selling apparel beyond just basics, the more impactful the Echo Look will be when it's released publicly.

Just by looking at Amazon's list of Prime Day deals sneak peak list, it's apparent that they're not kidding around.

Amazon will be offering deals on several of its own devices during Prime Day.

That's not to say there aren't competing deals if you're not willing to put Amazon's ear in your living room (or kitchen, or bedroom). Though Amazon's event is limited to members of its Prime subscription program, competing offers like Google's will only help develop that reality.

So far, Amazon has only announced a handful of deals.

"But the only way they will draw attention away from Amazon is through great deals", Barr said.

Therefore, the study suggests that brands should bolster visibility across multiple online retail channels to maximize sales opportunity, as 76% of Prime Day shoppers visit other major online stores to research product ratings and reviews before making a purchase on Amazon.
