Question #1: What is Amazon Prime Day?

Amazon Prime Day is an online event where record breaking deals will be published for 30 hours to celebrate the 22nd birthday of Amazon. Amazon Prime Day started back in 2015 and because the company saw SO much success, they decided to keep doing it every year in July to give thanks to their customers and help them find the best deals around.

These deals are ONE DAY ONLY and to be honest, I never see deals like this any other time of the year on Amazon except for on this day! Like I mentioned above, this is better than Black Friday AND Cyber Monday! All you have to do is sit in your house, get on your laptop or your phone, and find the deals that you like! (And guess what, my team and I will find MOST of the deals for you!)

Question #2: What Are the Requirements to Participate in Amazon Prime Day?

Unfortunately, not all can participate in these awesome deals, or so they say. Hear me out! You need to be a member of Amazon Prime in order to get these deals! I LOVE AMAZON PRIME! It is $99 for a year subscription and you get SO many benefits. (FYI: If you are a student with an .edu email, you can get your subscription for only $45!). Go read this blog post about all the benefits of Amazon Prime. And if that doesn’t convince you on how great Amazon Prime is, I have a workaround it so you can STILL get access to these awesome Amazon Prime Day Deals. 

Amazon gives you the option to have a FREE 30 day trial of Prime. All you need to do is sign up for this free trial BEFORE Amazon Prime Day! With your free subscription, you can gain access to all the deals that will be available. Here is the key though! After you sign up for the 30 Day Free Trial, it will automatically renew and charge you the $90 once the 30 days are up! SO, if you are not wanting to buy a year subscription (which, I really think you should because it is worth it!) make sure you cancel your subscription before the 30 days are up! If not, you will be charged! Canceling is SUPER easy if you decide Prime is not for you!

Question #3: What Day Will It Be Happening?

We have the date ladies and gentlemen! On July 11th Prime Day will happen! Starting at 7pm on the 10th, the deals will start and will run all day on the 11th. The deals will run for 30 hours and we will be there along the way to make sure you don’t miss anything!


Question #4: What Can I Expect (and shopping strategies)?

This day is complete MADNESS, but my team and I will be here to help you all along the way! What you can expect is that thousands of items will have reduced prices for just one day! So take a moment and write out a list of items that you need, want, or have been dying to have. Think about Christmas, or back to school, or upcoming weddings, or just things you need around the house. Then come to the blog and you can easily filter by category to see if anything you need is showing up! If you just try and look through all the deals, you will be stuck searching for HOURS and may end up missing the deals that you really were needing.

On top of the normal discounted deals, you’ll also find Lightning Deals. What are lightning deals you may ask? Well, lightning deals are just like that, LIGHTNING. They come in an instant, and then they are gone! On Amazon Prime Day, there are THOUSANDS of lightning deals and they are exceptional. They are so good that I have seen products sell out in minutes! And the awesome thing is that usually lightning deals are high demand products like kindles, echo dots, Fire TV sticks, and SO much more! You can find deals in every department!

But, there is a trick to these lightning deals. Once you claim the item and add it to your cart, you only have a certain amount of time to purchase it. If you do not purchase it in that amount of time, you loose your claim and it goes to someone else. The good thing about that is if you are a little late to the game and the product is “sold out”, you can join the waitlist and every time people lose their claim, the person who is the highest on the waitlist will get the opportunity to buy! So always join the waitlist if you initially miss the deal. 

Question #5: What Kinds of Deals Will There Be?

Unfortunately, I cannot tell you EXACTLY what deals will be there this year because Amazon has been so hush-hush about this day, BUT, I can show you the deals from last year so you can get a good idea on what past year’s deals have looked like!

Deals from Amazon Prime Day 2016:

Those are just 30 of the THOUSANDS of deals that were posted last year and I have no doubt that this year will be even better. What is awesome is that these deals are NAME BRAND products that are quality and that people actually want! If I get any hints about upcoming deals, I will let you know!

 Question #6: What Will Fabulessly Frugal Do For Me on Amazon Prime Day?

This is my favorite part… like you saw above, I showed deals that people actually want. My team and I are will be searching through Amazon ALL DAY and keep you updated so you know exactly what deals are up! We will spend the hours searching through the thousands of deals and we’ll post the ones that people like you will actually want! And make sure you follow Fabulessly Frugal on Facebook and turn your notifications on. I’ll be sharing direct links to some awesome lightning deals you won’t want to miss there!
