It is not only you who can’t navigate through Amazon‘s departments right now. We are also struggling to fetch the Prime Day deals. Is it because of heavy traffic, or attack? In both cases, this is a nasty surprise!
Until the start of Prime Day less than an hour ago, the online store was functioning perfectly. We have been browsing extensively through the day to select the best Prime Day deals for our readers. However, at present, every second or third click opens an error page.
Amazon kicked off its big Prime Day sales promotion with technical glitches on its website and mobile app, threatening the outcome of its 36-hour sales extravaganza. The internet is buzzing with comments and deal reviews as the mega sale is a highly anticipated and very lucrative earning opportunity not only for Amazon, but for all participating retailers and marketers as well.
It is still possible to get some of the deals, but mostly by following links from external websites to the exact Prime Day deal.
Online shoppers immediately took their frustration to social media sites, because many have been eagerly awaiting the savings opportunities, which are actioally coming at some premium as yo have to buy Prime membership to be able to shop the sale.
However, while we have been crafting this post, it seems Amazon managed to restore the normal functionality of site.
Prime Day deals are really good this year! Happy shopping!
