Amazon has promised its customers for a much bigger event in 2019 with a million deals available worldwide and lots more entertainment through Prime Music and Prime Video.

She's joined by a list of other chart-topping artists, including Dua Lipa, SZA, and Becky G, all hosted by Jane Lynch. So make sure you set an alarm to reach early once when the sale goes live. The hosts will also spotlight some of Amazon Prime Days' most "unusual items", which viewers will just have to see for themselves.

The high-end department store hasn't shown any intention of jumping into a direct competition with Amazon, but its two-week annual summer sale event will come on the heels of Prime Day this year, running from July 19 to month-end. For instance, in 2015 and 2017, Amazon shares outperformed the S&P 500 (^GSPC) in the five trading days before Prime Day, one day before and five days following.

How to prepare for Amazon Prime Day sale?

Amazon's Prime Day is back - and so is the temptation to shop and overspend on stuff you don't really need.

The replay is available on Prime Video.

Prime Day starts at midnight on Monday, July 15, but the party got underway last night in NY with a free streamed concert from Taylor Swift. It becomes very easy to get carried away and purchase unwanted things that you may not even need.

"We can't wait to celebrate Prime Day with an extraordinary night of unforgettable performances, for members around the globe", said Steve Boom, VP of Amazon Music, in a statement.

Bargain hunters will have a lot of work to do next week, digging for the best deals available exclusively with an Amazon Prime membership, as well as doorbuster savings on top brands from highly respected eBay sellers, and last but certainly not least, sifting through "red hot online sales" over at Target. You can get around the Prime membership by signing up for a 30-day free trial.

This evening, Alexa users can also ask, "Alexa, play the Prime Day Concert" or "Alexa, show me the Prime Day Concert" to watch the show on Fire TV or Echo Show devices.
