CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas -- in July.

That's because Amazon is gearing up for its second annual Prime Day, a global shopping event offering extra deals for Amazon Prime subscribers.

The company says last year’s inaugural Prime Day exceeded Black Friday records at the time, with worldwide shoppers ordering 398 items per second.

This year’s sale kicks off at 3 a.m. Tuesday, July 12, but some countdown deals are already available.

Want in on the savings? Membership to Amazon Prime costs $10.99 on a monthly basis, or $99 per year.
