If there’s one day a year we can’t wait for, it’s Amazon Prime Day. We love a good deal (one of our editors *just* got through the dish soap she ordered last year!) and we prefer to do our shopping from the comforts of our home.
That’s why we’re even more excited about the news that just released—Prime Day 2019 will be two full days, starting on midnight (PT) Monday, July 15 through just before midnight on Tuesday, July 16.
Amazon announced that it’ll feature more than one million deals, and some have already started. You can browse all of the Prime Day launches here. Amazon released these deal sneak peeks:
- $179.99 Toshiba HD 43-inch Fire TV Edition Smart TV ($120.00 off)
- $99.98 Key for Garage mQ Smart Garage Hub + Amazon Cloud Cam Kit (40% off)
- Major deals on Alexa-enabled devices

How to get the most of Prime Day 2019:
1. Check your membership
If you’re not a Prime member yet, you can sign up here for a 30 day free membership to get in on the deals on Prime Day 2019! The annual shopping event is reserved for members so make sure you’re logged into a Prime account to shop.
2. Browse Amazon products
While all of the deals aren’t available, Amazon’s products typically always go on sale so take a look ahead of time to know what you’d like to add to your list. We love the Echo Show for video calling grandparents, the Fire HD Kids Edition Tablet for indestructible devices for kids, and the Echo Dot for asking all of the questions.
3. Track products + lightning deals
There are only a certain number of items that qualify for the deal and they can go fast. You can use the Amazon App to track upcoming deals and set it to notify you when that deal is about to begin. Sold out? See if there’s a waitlist option—if an item becomes available, you’ll be added to the line to be notified.
4. Make a list
It can be tempting to order all of the things because they seem like a good deal, but remember that deals happen throughout the year, too. To avoid having a million boxes showing up at your doorstep (guilty ♀️) make a list of what you really need for the year. Think: Birthday presents, holiday shopping, household goods you always use, that item you’d love to treat yourself to, a stroller you desperately need. If it’s on the list, don’t hesitate to buy so you don’t miss out.
