Amazon Prime Day is on July 11th this year (that’s on Tuesday in case you are calendar challenged like myself.) I hope your bank account is ready for this! I kid, well kind of. In case you are new to the Amazon Prime Day game, let’s chat.
What is Amazon Prime Day?
Amazon Prime Day is the annual sale exclusively for Amazon Prime members. The deals are deep and some say better than Black Friday deals! This July 11 is the third annual Prime Day. Did I mention you MUST be an Amazon Prime member? If you aren’t keep reading!
When Does Prime Day Start?
Shop deals as early as 6pm PT / 9pm ET on July 10, 2017. That’s right – even though Prime Day is officially on July 11th – the deals start early! New deals start as often as every 5 minutes for 30 hours straight.
The Deals Go QUICK!
Watch out, these deals go quick. You will be waitlisted if the deal is full. If additional items become available (if someone doesn’t check out in time, this enables those on the wait list to get the deal) – you will be notified on your mobile device.
Amazon Prime Day Deals!
We all want to know about those deals! Let’s talk about what we know if going to be on sale and also how to shop on Prime Day. That’s right, this isn’t your typical Amazon shopping experience. It’s like Black Friday style, minus the fights, tents and news crews.
