Sneak Peak Amazon Prime Day | Here’s What to Expect!

Disclosure Statement
Prime DayAmazon Prime Day starts in just a few hours, so I wanted to give you a quick sneak peak so you would know what to expect.

Amazon has promised to release 100,000 deals across all categories, with deals available exclusive to Amazon Prime members.

When will the deals start?

The deals begin at midnight Pacific Time – 3 am EST – and last for 24 hours. New deals will be released every 10 minutes throughout the day.

Keep an Eye Out for Prime Day Spotlight Deals

Expect huge discounts on big name brans. Amazon is promising that these are the “best deals” you will see on Prime Day. Although we don’t yet have specifics, I’m expecting TVs, tablets, gift cards and baby gear – at least based on what we saw last year.

…. As well as Lightning Deals

In addition, there will also be a number of lightning deals throughout the day – you know the deal with these, right? You typically have four hours before the deal expires. But if it’s a really HOT deal, expect it to be sold out within seconds (yup, seconds). The good news is that there is a wait list, so you can get on that if you missed the deal. Keep your Amazon window open if you’re on the wait list, because that’s how they notify you when you get off the list – and can score the deal.

But tachlis, what deals can we expect?

We don’t know yet whether these are going to be Spotlight Deals, Lightning Deals or All-Day Deals, but we do know that Amazon has promised us that we will see:

  • 2016 Model – Samsung UN55KU6600 Premium Curved 55-Inch 4K Ultra HD Smart TV for $649.99 – Amazon Exclusive (I think it’ll be this one)
  • Fire tablet, Amazon’s best-selling tablet, starting at just $33.33
  • $50 off the Amazon Echo
  • $30 off the Amazon Fire TV
  • $15 off the Fire TV Stick 
  • $30 off the Kindle Paperwhite
  • Up to 50% off top toy brands including Nerf, Barbie, Fisher-Price and more
  • Up to 50% off electric shavers, hair tools, and more
  • 30% off clothing, shoes, jewelry & watches
  • Up to 60% off athletic shoes
  • $25 back with $50 Luxury Beauty purchase (LIVE NOW)
  • Samsung Curved 3D Blu-ray Player for $49.99 (not sure which model)
  • and lots, lots more!

I am planning to live blog the sale, starting around 4:30 or 5 am (*cry*) so I suggest you check right here as soon as you wake up! Even if it’s just to offer me a virtual cup of coffee and say, “Hi, Crazy Lady!”

P.S. I’m guessing you realize this by the name “Prime Day”, but these deals will only be available to Amazon Prime members. If you aren’t a member, you can sign up for a FREE 30-day trial.
