It's estimated more than half of Americans have been holding off on a purchase for this very event. Prime day was such a success last year, the website crashed. And Amazon has now increased the sales from 36 to 48 hours. The deep discounts begin July 15th, on everything from kitchen appliances to electronics like the apple macbook air already $200 off, totaling $999. And the Amazon echo dot, half off, selling for $25. And it's not just Amazon. Coupon site retailmenot anticipates more than 250 retailers will participate in prime day-related promotions. Amazon has figured out a way to really beat that summer slump, and other retailers are noticing that and they're trying to cash in on the hype. Macy's Black Friday in July is here.

Check the price tracking sites to make sure you're getting the best deal. Hope all this competition helps people at home. Linsey, thank you.
