Amazon workers are currently on a transcontinental strike

Amazon has said it has more than 100 million paid Prime members worldwide.

The iRobot Roomba 671 is one of its more cheap models, but it does still work with Amazon Alexa and the Google Assistant, so you can use your voice to control the robot vacuum here. Add it to your basket and - if you're a Prime member - 20% will be taken off the total, bringing it to a far more palatable £1,301.70. Amazon Prime Day Sale to Start on July 16 at 12PM; Featuring Flash Sales, Discounts & Cashbacks.

Amazon's Prime Day kicked off at 3 p.m. (EST) but when users went to check out the deals, the site appeared to keep sending users in a circle between screens that said, "shop all deals".

Meanwhile, Amazon workers, who have long gone on strike in the run-up to the holidays, have found a new occasion to get their employer's attention: Prime Day.

To make the most of Amazon Prime Day, shoppers are advised to sign up to an Amazon Prime Subscription.

Many are shopping successfully - in the first hour of Prime Day in the US, customers have ordered more items compared to the first hour past year.

"We are committed to ensuring a fair cooperation with all our employees, including positive working conditions and a caring and inclusive environment", said an Amazon spokesperson in an email statement. Taking Prime Day out of it, any sale that hits Bose products is one to take a look at.

Prime Day 2018 is here!

While Amazon is offering price cuts on various items, some of the best deals will be on the brands exclusive to Amazon.

What about non-Amazon devices?

Amazon launched Prime Day in 2015 and by 2017 it was its second biggest shopping day, topped only by Cyber Monday.

There are, of course, a zillion other deals to be had, but if you want the very best deals, just head to Amazon's Device Deals page, which is where you're going to get the best discounts highlighted.

Amazon said it expected only a fraction of its 12,000 workers in Germany to join the strike, and that there would be no impact on Prime Day deliveries. Four new countries will be part of Prime Day this year: Australia, Luxembourg, the Netherlands and Singapore.
