What is Amazon Prime Day?
Amazon has created a yearly sale full of deals EXCLUSIVELY for prime members. Prime Day is July 11th, with some early-access deals already happening now!!! Prime Day sales officially start June 9th 6 pm PT/9 pm ET. I have been a prime member for almost three years now and I have to say it is one of the best things I have signed up for when it comes to online shopping! Can you tell I’m excited about these sales? I’m definitely a bargain-lover!
Note: This post contains links that are affiliate links – there is no extra cost to you, but I will receive a small portion of the profit if you purchase from these links. I only link items that I fully support or use myself. All opinions are honest and my own. Thank you for the support!
If you are not already an Amazon Prime member, you can try a 30-day free trial here so that you won’t miss out on all of the sales! If you are a student, you are able to get a 6-month free trial!
A little about Amazon Prime – prime membership gives you free 2-day shipping on prime items, free one-day shipping on eligible items if you spend $35. Other awesome features of Amazon prime are PrimePantry and PrimeNow . Umm, did you know that you can use coupons on Amazon?! If you shop in PrimePantry items (grocery and household items), you get even more of a discount and add coupons here! And PrimeNow? Those are items that you can get delivered in 2 hours! This is so convenient when you forgot to get something from the grocery store and don’t have time to run back.
Okay, now back to the Prime Day 2017 Sales!
So, Amazon will not reveal the deals until they are occurring. That means we’ll need a little extra preparation in order to shop these deals.
The sales will be occurring as often as every 5 minutes. There is a limited quantity of each item being offered, so try to place items you have your eye on into your shopping list ahead of time so you can grab them while they are available! All you do is go to the item page, and under the yellow “add to cart” button you will see a dropdown option saying “Add to List”! Simple as that.
If you miss an item, simply click to get put on a waitlist and you may still be able to get it if more stock becomes available. Basically – make a WishList of any items you would like to buy to have it ready in case the item happens to be included in a deal.
The best way to shop Amazon Prime Day:
is by downloading the Amazon app! This way you can select the deals you want to shop and get notifications when they start. You can’t miss a deal if you are using the app!
Other Prime Day Deals:
If you download the PrimeNow app, you can get certain deal items delivered to you within an hour!
I have been using Audible for about a year now – and I love it! I sometimes use the whispersync feature along with my Kindle books, so I can read and listen to the audio of a book at the same time! I have enjoyed the audiobooks so much that I typically only download the audiobook version now.
It is wonderful if your eyes get fatigued from reading electronic books on a screen for long periods of time. I love listening to books while I am doing chores around the house, relaxing to go to bed or even in the car! Try Audible with my link and get your first 6-months at 40% off, as well as 2 free books!
Yep, Amazon is hosting some pretty cool giveaways in exchange for watching some Prime Day videos or learning how to use the Amazon app. You can find these giveaways on Amazon’s homepage.

ALL of these items are on sale! The Amazon Echo is only $89.99 – regular $179.99!!!!
Wait – don’t leave yet! Did I mention that while doing all of this shopping you have to option to donate some of the profits from your items to a charity of your choice? That’s right! After you sign up for Amazon Prime, just click here and choose your charity. Giving back can’t be easier than that.
