Get ready shoppers — Amazon Prime Day 2017 kicks off on Monday at 6 p.m. Eastern Standard Time. An unofficial holiday for Amazon Prime members, “hundreds of thousands of deals” are expected. This year Amazon will treat customers to 30 hours of deals, instead of it’s usual 24. Last year Prime Day was the biggest one in Amazon’s history, raking in over 90 thousand TVs, thousands of Kindles, Fire TV sticks and over 18 thousand headphones, sold in just 3 hours.

Online shoppers rejoice! You don’t have to be an Amazon Prime member to indulge in some overzealous spending today. There are sales aplenty through other retailers that don’t involve paying for a $100 membership.
