Amazon will offer upwards of two million deals on products to Prime members this year — more than it has offered in previous years— Jamil Ghani, vice president of Amazon Prime, said during a press event Tuesday.
The company is also using Prime Day to highlight how the savings event benefits independent merchants that sell goods through its website.
Prime members will get a $10 credit on Prime Day if they spend $10 at select small businesses from June 7 through June 20, Amazon said. The company said it was part of a new $100 million investment the company was making to boost small businesses.
“This is our biggest promotion for small business sellers in our history,” Keri Cusick, head of small business empowerment, said at the press event Tuesday.
Amazon faces intense scrutiny from lawmakers about its power over third-party sellers on the site.
