Holiday shopping time is quickly approaching, with Amazon’s annual Big Sale kicking off early Tuesday morning.
Since its inception in 2015, it marks the unofficial start of the global holiday shipping season. Tuesday will be the second Amazon Prime event of the year. The company’s July event is estimated to have generated $13 billion in revenue within 48 hours across 19 participating countries.
Below is information about the savings campaign.
