Prime Day 101: Everything You Need to Know to Snag the Best Deals


To put it simply, Prime Day is an annual sale from Amazon exclusively for Prime Members. This year, it will be Tuesday, July 11 – Wednesday, July 12 so mark your calendars! It can definitely get a little overwhelming because we all know Amazon carries a ton of products from top brands and small businesses, deals are constantly changing and new ones are added. But I’m here to help! I’ll be sharing my top picks from the sale across home, fashion, beauty, and more!

As mentioned, there a new deals each day and deals are constantly changing. In general, deals are broken into two parts:

Lightning Deals: These are flash deals that run for 12 hours or until the deal is sold out! These are time sensitive so once you add to cart you usually have a time window to check out/purchase or you lose the deal. So be quick with these!

tip: if you see a lighting deal you love that has not started yet, you can add that product to your watch list and enable notifications for when it goes live! You can learn how to enable notifications here.

Deal of the Day: You’ll usually find these deals featured first on Amazon’s home page. They run for either 24 or 48 hours during Prime Day — meaning deals that are live on Day 1 of the sale may not be available on Day 2. These deals are usually on Amazon’s most-loved and best-selling products!
