What Is Amazon Prime Day?
Amazon celebrated its 20th year with a blast in 2015 and hosted an event called Prime Day. The event is similar to Black Friday but usually set in July with tons of deals from Amazon basics to some of the market’s best gaming monitors. And they seemed to like it, as the event has continued annually ever since.
This year’s Prime Day could feature the highest amount of deals yet, with stock levels starting to replenish – albeit slowly. Amazon always has deals running throughout the year, but Prime members will enjoy the largest of those deals during this event.
You can find big deals on Alexa-enabled products, Fire tablets, Fire TV, and much more. We have listed specific products and deals below, so make sure you check them out.
Amazon has announced some early Prime Day deals already across some of their own products (as well as a few others). So you don’t have to hang around if you want to start saving money now.
Anything New With Amazon Prime Day This Year?
Looking back at the previous Amazon Prime Day events, it seems they are often quite similar. You’ll be getting tons of discounts and great deals, but there’s actually more to it than meets the eye.
Unlike last year, where Amazon Prime Day got delayed by several months, this year’s event will be going ahead in June.
We are expecting some of the biggest and best deals we have ever seen from an Amazon Prime Day event this year as they always seem to outdo themselves. These deals will potentially include Apple products, TV’s, Amazon products, and much more.
What Are Lightning Deals?
Lightning deals are basically limited time and limited stock deals that Amazon runs.
Often the lightning deals will come and go quite fast, so Amazon has added some features to these specific deals that make the user experience a bit more friendly. You will be able to see what percentage of the featured items have been purchased/ is sitting in a customer’s basket. You’ll see what savings are to be made and what discount has been added.
There is also a timer added onto these product pages, so you must complete your purchase within 15 minutes. Otherwise, the item will be available to someone else.
Fortunately, Amazon is considerate enough to offer every Prime member an opportunity to get notified should the item be placed back on the lightning deals. All you have to do is join the waitlist here, and you will be notified the second the item is available.
Joining the waitlist sends an alert in the upper right-hand corner of your Amazon.com page when the deal is available. If you’re using a phone, download the Amazon App and turn the notifications on to get real-time updates when the item is available.
But aside from having to wait around for notifications, you can also visit the Amazon Deals page and sort the page by “upcoming deals”. This should give you some time to prepare before a deal goes live.
Can Prime Students Take Advantage Of Prime Day Deals?
Amazon Prime student members will get all the same access to the deals as regular members do. If you weren’t aware and are currently a student with an edu email address you can sign up to prime for six months free of charge!
