Amazon is offering great deals on thousands of items in all kinds of categories including electronics, toys, clothing, sports, and outdoor items just to name a few. ‘A global shopping event, offering more deals than Black Friday,’ is the announcement on their website. That, along with free 2-day shipping. If you love a good deal, that sounds pretty exciting. It’s like Christmas in July!

When does it start?
Prime Day starts on July 15th at Midnight PDT, which is 3am EST.
How does it work?
You’ll want to go to the Gold Box Deals page. To do this just click the ‘Today’s Deals’ link at the top of most of the Amazon pages. On this page you’ll find:
- Deal of the Day – One item or a small set of items discounted for just that day.
- Our Best Deals – A bunch of discounted products that are featured.
- Lightning Deals – Good deals that are only offered for a short period of time and are limited in quantity so you can only purchase one of each deal in order to be fair to others. There will be a timer indicating how much time you have to add it to your cart and purchase the item before the promotion ends. New deals are added throughout the day as quickly as every 10 minutes so you’ll want to check back often if you’re really interested in scoring some good items.
Join wait list – If you see this option under the lightning deals it means that it’s almost sold out. Other people either bought the item or have it in their cart waiting to checkout. If they don’t check out in time, you will then have the option of purchasing it.
In order to take advantage of these deals, you need to be a member of Amazon Mom so if you’re not already, click on the link below and get your 30 day free trial. You can always cancel your membership after July 15th.
Once you get your free trial, you’ll be wondering if Amazon Prime or Amazon Mom is really worth the annual cost to continue the membership. Check out my post Is Amazon Mom Worth It? where I discuss the cost and benefits of the program.
