The highly anticipated Amazon Prime Day sale is just around the corner, and we’re here to help you grab the best deals! Amazon Prime Day is a 36 hour sale, exclusively for members of Amazon Prime, that takes place each July. Prices are dropped on hundreds of thousands of items during the sale, resulting in some of the best deals of the year.
What you can do to prepare for Amazon Prime Day
Register for a VIP Membership
Our exclusive VIP membership is the hottest place to find deals on the web! We take just a few members every year so that everyone has a great chance at snagging the thousands of limited quantity deals that are priced too low to post in the public groups. We’ll work round the clock to bring you all of the best hidden deals, and even send out push notifications as we find them to make your shopping a breeze!
Make sure your Prime Membership is active.
You must be a Prime member to take advantage of these deals. Not ready to pay for a full membership? Check to see if you qualify for a free trial here, sign up for a monthly membership for just $12.99 (you can cancel at any time). Qualifying low income customers are eligible to receive a discounted rate of $5.99 per month (with no contract).

Make a list of things you’ll need before Black Friday.
Many of these sales are department wide coupons, such as last year’s 30% off all clothing. It’s easy to forget what items and brands to search for. Take a few minutes and jot down the things you expect to purchase in the next few months so that you remember to grab them!
Add specific items to your cart.
One of the easiest ways to track sales on specific items is to simply add them to your Amazon cart. Price trackers won’t be able to tell you if there’s a coupon available for an item, but this will show in your cart. Add items now and periodically click on your cart to view price decreases.

You can purchase an annual membership for $119, or a monthly (with no contract) for $12.99. Qualifying low income customers are eligible to receive a discounted rate of $5.99 per month (with no contract).
When does Prime Day start?
Prime Day will start at 2:00 a.m. CST on October 13th. The best deals will begin at 2:00 a.m. on October 13th, and refresh every 6 hours through 8:00 p.m. on October 14th. You’ll want to stay up (or wake up early), as they will sell out FAST! We will also see sales on the days leading up to Prime Day.
Which Stores Have Prime Day Deals?
In addition to Amazon, many competing retailers will offer up some mega savings for Prime Day!
Target Deal Days
Target will be hosting Deals Days again this year to compete with the Prime Day madness. In previous years, this has consisted of several department wide coupons and many rock bottom prices on name brand items.
This sale will be held on October 13th and 14th, but we expect to see several early bird deals. Some deals are already live!
Walmart Big Save Event
This sale will run from October 11th through October 15th, with deals kicking off at 6:00 p.m. CST on Sunday, the 11th. We will see deals on popular electronics, such as televisions and video games, along with housewares, toys, and fashion.
What are Lightning Deals and How Do They Work?
Lightning deals are very limited quantity and are only available for about 4 hours (unless they sell out first). Some sell out in seconds, some will make it the full 4 hours.
New deals will go live every 15 minutes throughout the day.
You can view all lightning deals here.
To snag a lightning deal, make sure you’re viewing the item page as soon as your deal goes live. Add it to your cart. Unlike other items, lightning deals are secured in your cart for 15 minutes while you check out.
If an item is no longer available, you may be asked if you would like to join the waitlist. If someone ahead of you does not complete their purchase, it may be offered to you. A notification will pop up on your browser, so stay glued to your computer so you don’t miss it. If you’re mobile or walk away, refresh the item page to see if it allows you to purchase.
Lightning deals are typically limited to one per account.
How can I manage sifting through the “hundreds of thousands” of items while I’m at work?
Amazon Prime Day is overwhelming- not only are there hidden deals on items shipped from and sold by Amazon, many of the 3rd party sellers who ship via Prime are also slashing prices. The best deals sell out very quickly- so there’s not a lot of time to browse.
Don’t worry! We’ll do all of the work for you. We pick out the best and hidden items and post them directly in our Extreme Christmas Savings Facebook Group. We also give ‘heads up’ posts and text alerts for popular lightning deals in our Amazing Black Friday and Cyber Monday Deals group.
What items will be on sale during Amazon Prime Day?
You’ll see sales on individual items, high value coupons, coupons that take a percentage off of entire departments, lightning deals, and even deals on Subscribe and Save and Prime Pantry items. We will be live posting the hidden deals we find in our Extreme Christmas Savings Facebook Group.
The best deals are usually on Amazon devices, household items, grocery, and fashion.
