Amazon Prime Day_July162018.png

AMAZON PRIME DAY is coming up soon ~ It’s sort of like Amazon’s very own Black Friday – and just like Black Friday, this is a shopping event you’ll want to plan for so you don’t get overwhelmed.

So, are you wondering “when IS Amazon Prime Day?”

Well, the Amazon Prime Day start date has been *officially* released ~ Prime Day will be starting at 3pm EST on July 16th and will run for 36 hours (through the end of the day July 17!). Deals will be going live as often as every 5 minutes for 36 hours. CRAZY!

You’ll want to sign up for Amazon Prime NOW to have full access to all sale events (Get a FREE 30-Day Trial of Amazon Prime!)

3 . Know exactly when IS Amazon Prime Day

4. Alexa Voice Shoppers Get Early Deals

Did you know that using your voice to shop gets you extra early deals?  Customers shopping with devices powered by Alexa (like the Echo or Echo Dot) can get access to select deals from 7pm – 9pm EST.


5 . BIG TV Deals

We’ve been hearing lots of buzz about Amazon Prime Day Deals – but the one thing we can definitely expect is a few HUGE deals on televisions.  If you’ve been planning a big TV purchase – this might be a day to keep an eye out!

6 . Prep for Lightning Deals

  • Go HERE and bookmark this page for Lightning Deals
  • Click on “UPCOMING DEALS” in the middle of the page to see what times things are coming that you don’t want to miss.
  • If  there’s something you want, add it to your cart to save yourself one little step when the deal goes live!

8 . Use that Waitlist!

If a deal you wanted says 100% claimed, don’t despair – JOIN THE WAITLIST!   There are so many times I’ve joined the waitlist and ended up getting the deal after a bunch of people backed out.


9 . Know About the Daily Deals

Leading up to Prime Day there will likely be some nice daily deals as well.  Here are a few we saw last year:

  • Alexa Voice Shopping
  • Amazon Music
  • Amazon Prime Video
  • Everyday Essentials
  • Amazon Reading

10 . Stick It On Your List

Even if you have NO IDEA what’s going to go on sale for Prime Day – go ahead and add items you’re wanting to “your list” and then when/if they go on sale, you’ll get a notification so you can hop on the deal!

If you’ve never added items to your list – it’s easy!  Just click “Add to List” (Find it below Add to Cart – see image above).


11 . Score $$ for slow Shipping

You already get FREE 2-Day Shipping with Amazon Prime – but if you choose “No Rush Shipping” you can get a $5.95 Credit to be used towards Prime Pantry orders!


12 . Follow CFS for HOT Deal Updates!
