The event was meant to serve as a version of Black Friday for Amazon users.
But many Amazon competitors have a bricks-plus-clicks edge. Savvy shoppers can get a head start by seeing what the retailer has to offer here.

But shoppers also snapped up more than 300,000 Instant Pots and 150,000 LifeStraw Personal Water Filters, not to mention millions of pencils and pens ahead of back-to-school season.
While Amazon keeps its Prime Day revenue figures secret, the firm did disclose previous year that the discount-laden day was its "biggest global shopping event ever".
