You’ll have more than 24 hours to shop because the deals will run 30 hours this year after launching at 6pm last night and runs until midnight tonight. Amazon says new deals will be offered every five minutes. Customers shopping with a gadget equipped with Amazon’s Alexa virtual assistant will get access to Prime Day deals two hours before anyone else. There will also be deals on Amazon’s Prime Now platform, and as for the big items to watch, the company is teasing “amazing” deals on a “variety” of television brands. (Read more from KING 5)

After 7/11, Slurpee Week continues from July 12-18. Customers who buy seven Slurpees during that time and scan the mobile app will receive 11 free Slurpees.

Plus, any account sending large numbers of friendship requests to unknown accounts would raise a red flag with Facebook’s moderators for violating the social network’s terms and conditions regarding spam.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued an approval for stores to sell the modified fruit at the end of last year, explaining the color change was created by using Lycopene, the pigment that makes tomatoes red and watermelons pink, to change the enzymes that make pineapples yellow.
