The shopping event that attempts to rival Black Friday and Cyber Monday is experiencing a hiccup this morning.

Some people have reported trouble checking out with Amazon Prime Day deals.

Amazon acknowledged the issue early Tuesday morning, tweeting that they are working to resolve the problem.


Here are just a few examples of the savings to be found on Amazon today: 

Samsung Curved 55-Inch 4K Ultra HD Smart LED TV: $649 + free shipping (originally $1,247.99)

LG Electronics  43-Inch 1080p Smart LED TV: $367 + free shipping (originally $399)

ViewSonic LightStream Full HD 1080p Home Entertainment Projector: $477.58 + free shipping (originally $599.00)

On the first Amazon Prime Day, which was in July 2015, deals included flat-screen televisions, Amazon Kindle, Amazon Echo, FitBits, kitchen items and more.

This year's Prime Day will include similar items, but is adding more. Customers may book an Amazon Home Service and get $40 cash back on anything that costs $75 or more.

Customers will also find 15 percent off of select warehouse deals in the lawn & garden, books, home improvement and automotive categories. Those deals will be good through the end of July, Amazon announced.

Amazon will also offer $30 off its Fire HD 6.
