Prime Day 2019

Hey Readers!

I probably shop on Amazon a few times a month... I can't help it, they've got everything I could ever want! But this week I'm extra excited because Amazon Prime Day is coming up super soon!! This is THE time to take advantage of great deals and discounts for things in any category. Saw a Kitchen-Aid mixer you liked but haven't ordered it yet? Or maybe some school supplies you set aside in your cart for the coming semester? Have you been saving up to buy the latest 4K TV but haven't pulled the trigger yet? You should definitely take advantage of these deals while you have the chance! Keep reading for my top picks and insight into the best shopping day of the summer.

What is Amazon Prime Day?

Amazon Prime Day is an online global shopping event that allows you to shop for thousands of top-rated products at discounted prices. There will be deals in every category such as home, kitchen, electronics, fashion, toys, and baby.

In addition, on July 10th, 2019, at 9pm EDT, there will be a live concert exclusively for Prime members! Jane Lynch will be hosting the event, while Taylor Swift will be performing live with Dua Lipa, SZA, and Becky G. The two-hour event will be available to watch online and is included with your Prime membership.

There will also be Prime Day gaming deals in partnerships with Twitch Prime. (Twitch is the world's leading social video platform and community for gamers, video game culture, and creative arts.) You'll be able to view live gaming events from Apex Legends and EA Sports, exclusively for Prime and Twitch Prime members.

When is Amazon Prime Day?

This year, Prime Day will last 48 hours. Starting at midnight (PST) on Monday, July 15 and continue through Tuesday, July 16, 2019.

Most deals will only be for a certain amount of time during these days. What's on sale at 8am on Monday won't necessarily be available to purchase a few hours later! But you can add yourself to a "watchlist" for certain items, so you'll be notified when an item is available later on in the day.

How do I access these awesome deals?
Prime day is accessible to all Amazon Prime members. So you'll need to login to and sign up for Prime in order to take advantage of this sale. Don't worry, if you use this link, you'll get your first 30 days of Prime for free!

The Amazon Prime membership program will not only allow you to access Prime Day deals... You'll get to watch thousands of movies and shows only available on Amazon Prime Video, listen to unlimited ad-free streaming of over a million songs with Amazon Prime Music, and even get to borrow Kindle books! But the BEST part about Amazon Prime membership is the fast, two-day shipping for no additional costs! Sign up for your first 30 days and see how you like it. (Though I can assure you, it's pretty amazing.)

Already have a Prime membership? That's awesome! You should already have access to early deals during the week leading up to Prime Day.

"Watch" the deals you like
If you're serious about getting the best deals on an item, I have a tip for you! Download the Amazon App (available for the App Store and Google Play). Once downloaded, go to the settings in the app and turn on notifications titled "Your Watched and Waitlisted Deals". Then, as you scroll through the Amazon Prime Day Upcoming Deals, you can add upcoming deals to your watchlist. Once the deal is live and available for purchase, you'll receive a notification and will be able to order the preferred item at a discounted price.

Some items may only be available for purchase for an hour, while other deals will last the entire 48 hours of Prime Day. Adding items to your watchlist will help you figure out what you want to buy, and the notification feature will ensure you don't miss out on anything you liked! (You will only be notified for deals that you added to your watchlist.)

Sneak Peeks
Every day from July 8 through July 14, 2019, there will be a sneak peek of upcoming Prime Day deals. To access these sneak peeks and get a head start, download the Amazon App. Then in the search bar, type "Sneak Peek, and tap on the top result titled "Prime Day Sneak Peek". The deals shown here will change daily, so if you see a deal that interests you, tap "watch this deal" so you'll be notified when it goes live!

Special Early Access
Even though Prime Day officially starts on Monday, (July 15), there are some early access deals available for purchase happening right now! For currently active early access deals, use this link. And for any upcoming early access deals, you can head here! From there you can scroll through or narrow it down by category to find anything you'd be interested in. Much like on official Prime Day, the items listed change every few hours, so be sure to check back or save items to your watchlist, so you don't miss out!

My Top Picks
I've gone through some of the early access items and chose a few of my favorite deals!

Amazon Echo Dot - With this early access deal, you'll be getting the Echo Dot for half the usual price! It is a voice-controlled smart speaker with Amazon Alexa, and included over 50,000 skills! Play games with Alexa, ask for news, weather updates, and even ask her to play your favorite songs. I also love getting to set alarms, reminders, to-do lists, or timers so I don't forget anything. (Plus they've really improved sound quality in the 3rd generation!)

Ring Video Doorbell Pro with Echo Dot - I actually have the Ring Video Doorbell installed at my front door and I love it! I get notifications to my phone anytime the camera senses movement (or if someone rings the doorbell.) I can easily watch what's happening live and talk to anyone there without even being home! This is a great Prime Day bundle because you'll be getting the Ring Video Doorbell and Echo Dot for $169. (That's over $100 less than regular price!)

Fire TV Stick with Alexa + 2 months of HBOWith the Fire TV Stick, you can enjoy tens of thousands of channels, apps, and Alexa skills with access to over 500,000 movies and TV episodes. Just plug it into your TV, connect to wifi, and enjoy! As well as browse any website you wish like Youtube, Facebook, or 😉 With this bundle, you'll get all the features of the regular Fire TV Stick with Alexa, plus 2 free months of HBO with Prime video channels. With HBO, you can watch shows or movies like Game of Thrones, Big Little Lies, A Star is Born, and so much more!

Because so many early deals are on a day-to-day or timely basis, I didn't want to list anything that might end before you read this! So you'll want to check back to this link for any active or upcoming deals before the big day. 

Using the tips I listed above, I got the inside scoop on a few deals that will go live during July 15-16. I made a list of a few of them in this blog post, and included some instructions on how to get 20% off your orders before Prime Day!

I've also created a Prime Day Idea List in my Amazon Storefront, which is where I'll be adding some good deals I find before and during the main event.
