Amazon may have invented it, but other retailers are cashing in on Prime Day. In advance of the shopping discount period Amazon christened Prime Day two years ago -- falling on July 11 this year -- eBay is rolling out a series of ads urging consumers to give its site a second look for the best deals. In one, Amazon Prime is clearly called out: A male newscaster looks distraught as a voiceover says, "You thought you had a prime deal, but did you check eBay?" . . .
Other competitors of Seattle-based Amazon, such as Best Buy and Walmart, are currently featuring deals on electronics and home appliances including the Google Home device. Amazon's Echo is selling for $89.99, or half its regular price, as a key offering.
