Amazon says new 'Prime Day' will bury Black Friday

Posted: Updated:

By Aaron Smith

NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- It's Christmas in July for Amazon.

Black Friday, the legendary shopping day that follows Thanksgiving, is more than four months way. But that hasn't stopped Amazon from declaring a new sort of Black Friday on July 15: An online birthday shopaganza called "Prime Day."

"Step aside Black Friday, meet Prime Day," Amazon announced on Monday, promising the day would be "filled with more deals than Black Friday."

The company said that when it turns 20 years old on July 15, Prime members "will find deals starting at midnight, with new deals starting as often as every ten minutes."

Amazon is also offering free 30-day Prime memberships for non-members who want to take advantage of the one-day deal. Amazon Prime normally costs $99 per year and includes free shipping.

The company has been expanding its Prime service and recently started same-day shipping for members.

A 'basketball-sized' lava bomb punctured the roof of the tour boat, which was carrying about 49 passengers while observing Kilauea's Kapoho ocean entry point, leaving a large hole and seriously injuring at least one woman.
