I have Amazon Prime now how do I do Amazon Prime Day?

Then begin watching for Prime Day Deals on the designated page on Amazon.

  • This year Amazon is categorizing their Prime Day Deals according to their most shopped for themes. Think Pets, Beauty, Back to School….get what I’m saying now?
  • Some deals sell out but that’s okay, you can put yourself on the Waitlist and Amazon will notify you if the item becomes available.
  • Spotlight Deals – These are special deals that feature top brands, popular items and deep discounts that last until the very last item is gone. Find Spotlight Deals through the “Shop All Deals” link on or on

Amazon Prime Day Spotlight Deals Example

  • 30 Hours of Prime Day: Spotlight Deals that start on July 10th may return on July 11th. Product detail pages will indicate which Spotlight Deals may return, while supplies last.
  • Lightning Deals – These deals are viewable 24 hours before they are live but they only run for a very short time and the quantity is very limited. Again you’ll want to watch your Prime Day Deals page for up to date information as well as a timer on each deal as well as a status bar showing availability until the deal is claimed.
