Amazon's highly-anticipated annual shopping event, Amazon Prime Day, is finally here. This year, Amazon Prime Day starts on Monday, July 15 at midnight and runs for 48 hours. First launched in 2015, Amazon Prime Day has become “Black Friday in July” for online shoppers, with an astonishing number of products going on sale each year.
