Hands on with Amazon's Echo Show

Amazon’s annual day of deals kicks off at 9 p.m. ET on Monday.

which’s the third installment of Prime Day, as well as the event has already proven to net massive sales.

which year the company has promised which will be bigger than ever, with discounts on hundreds of thousands of items for Prime members all over the globe.

Amazon has given a few hints about what’s to come. If past years are any indicator, the deals will encompass a wide, if not comical, variety of items.

Here’s what you need to know.

30 hours to shop

Prime Day will actually run a bit longer than 24 hours.

which kicks off at 9 p.m. ET on July 10 as well as runs until 3 a.m. ET on July 12. Amazon says fresh deals will be offered every all 5 minutes.

Greg Greeley, vice president of Amazon Prime, says the goal can be to offer deals to “a record number of shoppers.”

Amazon says customers who do not already have Prime memberships can sign up on or before July 11 to take advantage of which year’s deals. Prime costs about $100 per year.

Track deals ahead of time

Amazon advises shoppers to use the Amazon app, where deals will be posted 24 hours ahead of time. You can even set an alert for when the offer begins.

Get exclusive as well as early deals with Alexa

Customers shopping which has a gadget equipped with Amazon’s Alexa virtual assistant will get access to Prime Day deals two hours before anyone else.

Voice shoppers also have access to “more than 100” exclusive pre-Prime Day offers. Those deals began July 5, Amazon says.

Some deals which are already available include $50 off on a Bose Soundlink Bluetooth speaker, as well as $20 off a Philips light strip which works with Alexa.

One more perk of voice shopping: If you don’t yet have a Prime Day membership, you can currently sign up through Alexa as well as receive a $20 discount, putting the one-year membership cost at $79.

Televisions on sale

We don’t yet know much about what the Prime Day offers will be. yet the company did say there will be some “amazing” deals on a “variety” of television brands — including the Amazon Fire TV edition of the ultra high-definition Element 4K TV.

“Amazon can be planning one of its largest total volume TV deals in history which has a record level of inventory yet Once more, the TV deals will likely sell out,” the company said in a press Discharge.

Items selling out lightning-fast plagued Prime Day’s inaugural event back in 2015. Last year, Amazon beefed up inventory. yet Prime Day 2016 was beleaguered by some technical difficulties when some customers found which difficult to add certain deals to their shopping carts.
