Many of these sales are department wide coupons. 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. Prime Day discounts are often coded in a way that is difficult to find while searching or using a price tracker. Add items now and periodically click on your cart to view price decreases.

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 June 20th-22nd, but we expect to see several early bird deals. To help you prepare, Target will be offering 5% off of all digital Target gift cards from June 16th-19th.
Walmart Big Save Event
Walmart has previously held the Big Save event and Rollback Days to compete with Prime Day. We do not yet have information on this for 2021, but we expect an announcement very soon.
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 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.
Confirmed Prime Day Deals:
A list of Prime Day deals will be released soon.
