When is Amazon Prime Day 2024?

Amazon’s legendary two-day Amazon Prime Day event officially begins at 3 a.m. EST on July 16th, and comes to a close at 3 a.m. EST on July 17th.

Are Amazon Prime Day deals the same on both days?

No! Some deals will be exclusively available on the 16th, while other sales won’t start until the 17th.

On top of that, many Prime Day deals will be offered as Limited Deals, where they’ll be available for a certain number of hours—or before the sale item runs out—whichever comes first! If you see an impressive deal on something that grabs your attention, I highly recommend buying it while you still can.

How does Amazon Prime Day work?

If the idea of saving big on electronics, kitchen goods, beauty supplies, toys, and more sounds great, the only thing you need to take advantage of the deals is a Prime Membership.

Anyone who regularly buys from Amazon should consider the array of perks that come with a subscription, and these include free shipping on thousands of items, access to Prime Video streaming, and most importantly, the ability to shop the Prime Day discounts.

If you’ve never been a Prime Member before, Amazon offers a 30-day trial, so newcomers can enjoy Prime Day to its fullest. Prime is available for $14.99 per month, and $139 for an annual subscription.

Do you need to be an Amazon Prime member to shop Amazon Prime Day deals?

Yes. The big money-saving Prime Day sales will be available exclusively for Amazon Prime subscribers.

How to prepare for the Amazon Prime Day sale

Once you’ve signed up as a member of Amazon Prime, it’s worth familiarizing yourself with Amazon’s layout and how the shopping platform functions so you don’t miss out on timed sales as they happen. (Our guide to Amazon shopping tips and strategies is also a good resource for getting ready for Prime Day.) Be sure to fill out your payment details ahead of time as well for a smooth and speedy checkout!

Tips for finding the best Amazon Prime Day deals

Prime Day can seem a bit chaotic if you aren’t prepared, but there are a few techniques to help secure the best deals for you.

Browse Amazon before Prime Day and create a wish list of anything that catches your eye. Visit your wish list often for unexpected sales and Lightning Deals, which rarely last for more than a few hours and often sell out quickly.

Check early and often—although the deals aren’t as frequent as Prime Day itself, the days and weeks leading up to Prime Day will offer some impressive sales for observant Prime Members.

Be careful! It’s best to buy directly from Amazon or trusted third-party sellers who use Amazon as a storefront such as Best Buy and Apple. Otherwise, you may not be getting the best price or free Prime shipping.

What retailers offer the best Amazon Prime Day alternatives?

While Prime Day gets the lion’s share of attention from summertime shoppers, there are excellent deals to be had at a variety of other retailers such as Walmart, Target, Kohl’s, Bed Bath & Beyond, Home Depot, Wayfair, Books-A-Million, and more. There’s no doubt that there will be plenty of steep sales and deep discounts for Prime Day, but I encourage you to shop around just in case a better deal exists for the computers, hardware, video games, and other goodies on your personal wish list.
