Prepare your credit cards, friends: It’s time for Prime Day again and we have all of the Amazon Prime Day Secrets you need to know.
Amazon just announced that its fifth-annual summer sale kicks off at Midnight (PT) on Monday, July 15 and runs through Tuesday, July 16. And not surprisingly, the mega online retailer says this year’s Prime Day will be bigger than ever.
If you’re new to this Prime Day thing, a little background: This is Amazon’s big annual sale event for Prime members — basically Black Friday in July, when the retailer offers a bunch of rapid-fire deals on TVs, smart home gadgets, kitchen items, groceries, toys, fashion, furniture, appliances, back-to-school supplies, and everyday essentials that run over the course of 36 hours.
There’s not much intel yet on what’s going on sale, but we did get a little sneak peek. Here’s everything you need to know so far.
How to Shop the Deals
If you’re not already an Amazon Prime member, start there. Become an Amazon Prime member by clicking this link. If you’re not ready to commit, you can sign up for FREE a 30-day trial that gives you access to all of Prime Day’s deals. Just remember to cancel after your month is up, or you’ll get charged.
Just like previous years, Prime Day will offer a mix of “Lightening Deals” and “Spotlight Deals.” Lightening Deals start every five minutes and run for a set amount of time, while Spotlight Deals last until an item is sold out. That means, you should plan to check in often and shop quickly. (Like we said, just like Black Friday!)
