Amazon unveils the date of Prime Day, and it sounds like Alibaba’s Singles Day: Amazon (AMZN) just released the dates of Prime Day – and this year the sale event will be the longest ever, lasting a full two days. Prime Day, the annual shopping event for Prime members, will run July 15 to 16. Like previous years, the best deals usually feature Amazon’s own products, like the Amazon Fire TV and the Echo smart speaker. An early deal, Toshiba HD 43-inch Fire TV Edition Smart TV, is selling at $179.99, 40% off the regular price.
