Amazon has announced that Prime Day 2018 will be taking place on July 16 and will feature 36 hours packed with over a million deals you won't want to miss. In 2017, the company held a 30-hour event, so this year will have an extra 6 hours of fun, and the deals are actually starting right now with $100 off the Echo Show and more.

Additionally, Amazon will be offering discounts to those using its desktop Assistant app and the camera feature in its mobile app.

The company states that there will be over a million deals that come and go through the event, and we know there is no way you'll be able to keep up with all of that. Our friends at Thrifter will be covering every waking second of the event, so be sure to follow them on Twitter to see all the best deals as they happen.
