This year, Amazon Prime Day begins July 16 at 3 p.m. ET and runs for 36 hours. It’s an annual sale for Amazon Prime members. (Not a Prime member? Sign up for a free 30-day trial!) Similar to Black Friday, Amazon Prime Day has amazing deals, but many deals are “lightning deals” that only last for a couple hours and sell out quickly.
If you’re looking to make the most of Prime Day (and not spend all day with your phone in your hand), check out this list of my favorite Amazon Prime Day deals.
You can set reminders with the Prime Day app or list your favorite deals on the shopping list. If you’re getting a head start on your Christmas shopping, don’t forget to write down all your purchases so you remember what you’ve already bought!
Get my free printable shopping list and gift tracker at the bottom of this post and keep checking back as I add and update deals!
