The highly anticipated Amazon Prime Day sale is just around the corner, and we’re here to help you grab the best deals! We don’t expect a formal announcement for a few more weeks, but it’s always good to plan ahead!
Who can take advantage of the Amazon Prime Day sales?
This sale is only offered to members of Amazon Prime. Not a Prime Member? Check to see if you qualify for a free trial here. 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?
There hasn’t yet been an announcement for the 2018 Prime Day, but based on previous years, we expect to see a selection of deals available at 8:00 p.m. CST on July 9th, and many more dropping at 2:00 a.m. CST on July 10th.
How can I manage sifting through the “hundreds of thousands” of items while I’m at work?
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. We expect to see another record breaking sale on the Instant Pot (and when you get one, check out our Pressure Cooking 101 group to learn how to use it!).
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.
We’ll update this post as we have more information, and if you would like deal alerts or have any questions at all, please join our Extreme Christmas Savings Facebook Group!
