For the fifth year in a row Amazon Prime Day got underway giving members 48 hours of savings.

According to Today, the yearly event started early this morning (July 15th) at 2 a.m. CST, and will run for two full days concluding on 1:59 a.m. on Wednesday (July17th).

To celebrate Amazon already placed some surprise deals that was originally supposed to start today like the Fire TV stick, the Echo and Kindle Paperwhite.

Of course you have to have an Amazon Prime membership to participate, but if you are on the fence about that $119 annual membership, you can do a 30 day trial.

Also, during Amazon Prime Day you can check out flash deals and the Gold Box deals of the day.  You can set up notifications for the potential deals and products you want to buy through the Amazon app.

Are you planning to buy anything for Prime Day today? If so, what kind of deals are you looking for?
