Amazon announces Prime Day 2016!


Amazon has just announced that Prime Day 2016 will be taking place on Tuesday, 7/12/16 with 100,000 new deals just for Amazon Prime members!  If you're not a member of Prime, make sure you get on the train and sign up here for Prime membership 30-day free trial so that you can take advantage of these deals.

There will be three types of deals available on Prime Day:
  • Prime Day Spotlight Deals:  Spotlight Deals feature top brands and popular items with deep discounts that last until Amazon runs out of stock. These are the best deals you'll find on Prime Day.
  • Amazon Lightning Deals: a Lightning Deal is a promotion that lasts for a short time, usually just a few hours.
  • Prime Savings and Deals:  promotions that run all day or within Prime Day.
Here's what I gleaned from reading all the press releases about Prime Day:

  • In addition to Prime Day Deals, Amazon will offer Countdown Deals for Prime members from 7/5/16 through 7/11/16, including, for example, a 32" TV bundle with a Fire TV Stick for $119.99. Countdown Deals will include gadgets on-the-go, summer travel items, foodie items, outdoor living items, back-to-school items, in-home essentials, deals on TV series and blockbuster movies available to rent or purchase, and more.
  • There will be deals in all shopping categories.
  • It's a GREAT time to buy a tv.  There will be twice as many TVs available as on Black Friday and Cyber Monday combined. Holy Moly.
  • There will be TONS of toy deals all day long.
  • There will be great prices on media:  tv shows and films. 
  • "There will be benefits to being an owner of an Amazon Echo, Echo Dot or Amazon Tap on Prime Day."  I guess this means that there will be deals announced through these devices that wont be available anywhere else.
  • Twice as many small business sellers are participating in Prime Day 2016 as did on Prime Day 2015.
FYI, Prime Day's home page can be found here.  I will have more details as they are released and of course, I'll be posting the BEST of those 100,000 deals, but in the meantime, you can read more about Prime Day 2016 over here and over here.

Amazon disclaimer:  Amazon prices can change without warning, so make sure you double-check the price at checkout.  If the price goes up any time after this deal is posted, Amazon is not responsible for matching this price.
