The ad, spotted by TechRadar, notes that the event will last some 36 hours, which would be the longest Prime Day since the event’s launch two years ago. (Last year’s was a 30 hour event.) It would also be a notable shift from the company’s history of running Prime Day on the second Tuesday in July.
