Amazon Prime Day Primer

Amazon Prime Day is nearly here. In year’s past, I’ve gotten some really good deals on stuff. Ya gotta put your time in and be on top of things but lucky for my bank account, we’ll be on vacation. So there won’t be an all day online deal stalking session.


Have no fear…Amazon is offering some Prime Day previews and I’ve pulled together as much from the sneak preview as I can. There are deals to be had ahead of July 16th my friends!

This post contains some affiliate links – meaning if you click through the links and buy anything, the retailer will pay me a small commission at no additional cost to you! 

Amazon Prime Day Details

First things first, in order to take advantage of all the great Amazon Prime Day deals, you have to be a member of Amazon Prime. They are offering a 30 day free trial so you can take advantage now! Cancel if you want…but you won’t want to. Prime membership pays for itself easily, at least for me…or any parent. Don’t want to do the free trail? Find a friend or family member who is already a Prime member and ask them to add you to their account. This is what my sister and I do – just be sure to have a good shopping cart management strategy.

Once you’re in, take advantage of the countdown to deals. Amazon Echo is currently $100 off.

I’m a huge fan of audio books and Audible is currently on sale 66% off for your first 3 months.

My favorite Amazon Prime Day category? Shop specials from small businesses and start ups. I am LOVING this Drippy Ceramic Vase and it’s 20% off.

There are going to be a ton of new product launches on Prime Day. You can get a sneak peak here. Some of my favorites:

Magformers Paw Patrol Edition – I bought these last year on Prime Day and included it in our Christmas Gift Guide. They are still a huge hit with both of my kids.

Vitamix E310 Blender

Seagate 4TB External Hard Drive

Grocery Deals! $30 off your first order with Amazon Fresh with the code 30FRESH and $10 orders of $40+ with free trail of Amazon Pantry.

Live near a Whole Foods? On Prime Day, head in-store for some great deals there. You can also set up a watch list of deals on the day of so you don’t miss a thing.

Happy shopping Prime friends!
