Perhaps you have heard of “Christmas in July”? Amazon is celebrating “Black Friday in July” with Amazon Prime Day. For two days only, Monday, July 15 and Tuesday, July 16, Amazon will offer tremendous savings on more deals than on Black Friday. These deals will be for Prime members only.
You’ll be able to shop deals across TVs, smart home, kitchen, grocery, toys, fashion, furniture, appliances and back-to-school supplies and even stock up on everyday essentials. Plus, Prime members get exclusive savings at Whole Foods Market. Here are a few insider tips to help you get all the best deals:
Prime Day deals start at 1 a.m. MT on Monday, July 15, and — for the first time ever — run for 48 hours. As often as every five minutes, new deals will become available.
Prime Day will be the biggest celebration of deals with limited-time offers, never-before-seen entertainment and exclusive launches online and in-store.
Also, members will find the biggest Prime Day deals ever on Alexa-enabled devices.
New this year, Prime Day will offer more than one million deals globally, including new featured Lightning Deals (these are items that are at least 20% off).
Due to the nature of these deals, many will have limited quantities and could sell out fast, so Prime members should come back frequently to view new deals launching throughout the 48-hour event.
