Set your alarms, mark your calendars, clear your schedules! Amazon’s Prime Day is just around the corner!
Prime Day officially starts at 12:00 pm Pacific on Monday, July 16 and runs through the end of Tuesday, July 17.
Here’s the skinny on Prime Day:
Prime Day is like Black Friday in July. It’s a 36 hour period when Amazon and independent Amazon sellers deeply discounts thousands of items.
These deals are ONLY available to Prime members. You can get a (you can cancel at any time before the 30 days is up).
There will be three types of deals running through Prime Day:
- — These will be available the entire time (not Lightning Deals) but they may sell out.
- Regular Discounts — These are items that have a deep discount that you can purchase at any time, though sellers may have limited quantities.
