Prime Day is Amazon's annual sales extravaganza. Amazon's Prime Day starts July 16, 2018, and will be six hours longer than last year's and will.

The social media team at the Philadelphia Eagles, who never seem to miss an opportunity to stand out on Twitter (especially when FS1 host Colin Cowherd is concerned), took the opportunity to poke some fun at the online megastore with its own dogs. Many shoppers hoping to score deals were instead met with photos of cute dogs, the company's standard error page.

"We are committed to ensuring a fair cooperation with all our employees, including positive working conditions and a caring and inclusive environment", said an Amazon spokesperson in an email statement. However, the retailer countered criticisms of its downtime by insisting that, for some users, there are no problems. Many are shopping successfully - in the first hour of Prime Day in the US, customers have ordered more items compared to the first hour past year.

The good news is that you can still find out about Amazon's Prime Day deals by following Thrifter's constantly-updating information.
