Amazon Prime Day Begins July 10! What Deals Can You Expect?

Amazon has held a Prime Day shopping event for the past two years, and we’ve finally got details about 2017. So when is Prime Day going to happen, and what deals can you expect?


When Is Amazon Prime Day?

Amazon has revealed that “Prime Day will be a 30-hour shopping event” that runs from 9 pm ET on Monday, July 10 through 2:59 am ET on Wednesday, July 12. The site says to expect “new deals as often as every five minutes.”

Who Can Shop Amazon Prime Day?

Sorry, but we have to be clear: This sale isn’t for everyone. As the name indicates, only Amazon Prime subscribers can shop Amazon Prime Day. However, this group includes free trial members, guests who’ve been invited as part of an Amazon Household, and users with AmazonFresh, Amazon Family, or Prime Student memberships.

What Is Prime Day, Anyway?

During Prime Day, Amazon offers thousands of deals. Some are all-day offers, while others are available for only a brief period. Those sales, called “Lightning Deals,” launch every few minutes throughout the day.

With such different time frames for so many sales — featuring everything from TVs to baby wipes— finding the deals you want can be hard. One way to make things easier? Download the Amazon app on your phone and look through upcoming deals for the categories you’re interested in. If you add a deal to your “watching” list, you’ll get a notice through the app when that deal is about to go live.

Once you see the deal go live, it’s a good idea to hit “add to cart” immediately. You’ll have a few minutes to either complete your purchase or remove the item from your cart, and some goods sell out in seconds. Even if a deal says “100% claimed,” don’t be shy about putting yourself on the waitlist. Many of the people who immediately claimed the deal might decide to pass after a little thought.

What Should You Buy?

While many of the Prime Day deals will be a surprise, you can pretty much count on solid discounts for Amazon-brand products — especially anything new. This year, those new things include the latest Fire HD 8 Tablet iteration and the Echo Show. However, since Echo Show is due for release at the end of June, any discount would likely be small. {Catch up to an article on the new ECHO SHOW here:
