Amazon Prime Day is extended this year.

It starts July 16th, 2018 at 3:00 p.m. local time and will last 36 hours.

That's 6 hours longer than last year.

Prime Day is a chance for people to sign up for Amazon Prime memberships and take advantage of some sweet online deals.

The new price tag for an annual Prime membership is $119.

That's up 20% from last year.

The last Amazon Prime Day was the largest sales day ever for the online retailer.
