What is Amazon Prime Day?
The inaugural event takes place for 48 hours only on Oct. 11th and 12th and is being positioned as a second Prime member savings event with exclusive early access to holiday deals and special prices on top brands.
New, we will see Amazon’s first-ever Top 100 list that will feature curated deals from top brands like iRobot, KitchenAid, and Samsung, and of course, major savings on select Fire TV smart TVs, plus score additional savings on Alexa-enabled devices.
And while many of the best Early Access deals (opens in new tab) are available across the whole two-day event, for those "Lightening Deals" you can coordinate with your Alexa (opens in new tab) to bookmark them ahead of when they go live, and can even automatically purchase them for you.
Note, Amazon is one of a number of retailers, including Target, Best Buy and Walmart who are hosting their own major shopping events to entice shoppers to get their holiday shopping done early. Best Buy's Flash Sale (opens in new tab) and Walmart's Deals for Days (opens in new tab) event will run concurrently during October Prime Day. Meanwhile, Target ran its own Deal Days last week and has quickly transitioned to kicking off its Target Black Friday deals (opens in new tab).
Do I need to be a Prime member to shop Amazon Prime Day?
While you can shop Amazon without being a Prime member, the only way to get Early Access discounts is to be a Prime member. New members can sign up for a free 30-day membership to test out all the perks of being a member.
What is a Lightning Deal?
There are two main types of deals that apply on Prime Day.
Deal of The Day discounts typically run for the duration of the event, or for at least a day. These often apply to Amazon's own-brand products, such as its Echo Dot speakers and Kindle e-readers.
Then there are Lightning Deals. These are special offers that pop up over the course of Prime Day on specific items. They may be for a limited amount of time up to around four hours or on a limited amount of stock. The very best Lightning Deals are known to sell out in minutes.
