Here's what you need to know to navigate the fourth annual e-commerce sale, which will begin at 3 p.m. Monday and run through Tuesday. That might be because Amazon's storefront is down - according to many of us at CNET and a host of reports on social media - at a rather unfortunate time for the company. It costs $12.99 a month and includes two-day delivery, access to Amazon's Prime Video service, Prime Reading, Prime Photos and Prime Music - giving you streaming access to over 40 million songs. Target announced that they too will be hosting a super-sale (what many call "Anti-Prime Day" deals) starting on July 17th, with some exclusive deals available now! In addition, for those of you who are itching to shop and save right now, Amazon is offer deals on select devices ahead of the main event. This year's Prime Day is planned to last for 36 hours - six more hours than last year. If you're not yet a Prime member, now is the time.

Shoppers will spend a collective $3.4 billion just on Amazon during the Prime Day promotion, up 42 percent from a year ago, according to Coresight Research.

Talking about the exclusive announcements, the first day of Amazon Prime Day sale is expected to witness over 200 new products.

Goldberg noted that it's easy for Amazon to extend deals on its own devices and brands, but trickier for it to extend deals for its third-party sellers because they signed up for different promotional slots.

Shoppers will also be able search for a specific product to see if it has a Prime Day badge - which means it is discounted for the shopping event.

The eBay deals page, meanwhile, contains a lot more products, across a variety of categories, complete with prices and full information. The most optimistic are those earning more than $100,000, a segment that dovetails nicely with Amazon Prime members. The $10 bonus credit will be automatically added to your Amazon account by scanning the Whole Foods or Amazon app from your smartphone at the register.
