In 2015, the online retail giant launched Prime Day to mark the company's 20th anniversary by offering a day of big discounts on many of its items.

"We have over a million deals available across Amazon.com for things like furniture, TVs, smart devices, groceries and clothing," said Hards.

For 48 hours starting at midnight on July 15, the discounts will be posted on Amazon's site, but the deals are exclusively for Prime members.

"Any customers that are not currently Prime members can sign up that day and also have access to our deals," said Hards.
