However, all of the details are currently being kept under wraps. But we'll be sure to update you as soon as they start to come through.
If last year is anything to go by, expect amazing deals from big brands, especially in tech.
Of course there will also be savings on popular Amazon devices, including 49% off an Echo Dot with six months free Amazon Music Unlimited and an incredible 58% off Echo Buds.
In previous years the Echo, Fire Stick and various smart home security were slashed in the Prime Day sale, and the online giant saw a huge increase in demand as shoppers rushed to take advantage of the savings.
