Amazon Prime Day has returned with the most amazing shopping deals found anywhere online. Although still referred to as a single day, this year’s event actually takes place over two days.
From July 11 through the end of the day on July 12, deal hobbyists and hunters, veteran shoppers and those new to the event can enjoy some of the lowest product prices found during the year outside of Black Friday events.Read More »
What Are Amazon Prime Days?
Jeff Bezos founded the now-mega online marketplace known as Amazon on July 5, 1994. In 2015, Amazon launched its first Prime Day in nine countries (the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy, Austria, Spain and Japan) exclusively to subscribers with the goals of celebrating the company’s 20th anniversary and offering deals during the summer that would outshine Black Friday deals in the fall.
The event was such a success that it broke shopping records. Prime members ordered 398 products per second and 34.4 million items overall in one day. The first Prime Day gave Amazon more sales in a single day than the previous year’s Black Friday.
Members also purchased more Amazon Devices than ever before. Sellers received an incredible, much-needed revenue boost, with 300% worldwide sales growth. This year, Amazon is trying again to break records with the number and types of deals. It’s also offering more small-business products than previous years.
Popular Deals to Check Out Right Now
It’s important to note that these deals are so popular that they might not last long. Prime members should watch changing prices and deal terms on product pages closely. Special offers never last long.
Several couponing and buying experts also recommend that shoppers look for extra savings on a product’s detail page, such as Amazon coupons and retailer perks. Additionally, Amazon offers additional purchase and savings opportunities that increase a shopper’s buying power to members who sign up for a Prime Store Card, such as an instant $100 Amazon Gift Card.
Amazon Entertainment and Security Devices
Prime members who currently own or want personal and other electronics exclusive to Amazon can save up to 75% during this two-day Prime Day event:

It has 128 GB of storage (expandable to 1 TB and a micro-SD card), 4 GB RAM memory, superfast Wi-Fi 6 and an 8 MP camera.

School and Home Office Supplies
Amazon knows it’s almost time for students and teachers to return to primary and secondary schools, colleges and universities. Parents and others also want to reduce costs as much as possible when purchasing non-business home office supplies.
Now is the time to stock up on art supplies and writing instruments, laptops, towels, bed linens, backpacks and shoes. Members can receive 20% off any order of $30 or more in this category on select items. With some manufacturers’ products, such as Crayola products, they receive up to 55% off. Here are the top three most popular deals in the category:
– Crayola Inspiration Art Case: Although marketed to boys and girls, this Amazon Best Seller can provide endless hours of inspiration for any artist.
With 140 combined non-toxic colored crayons, markers and pencils, paper and a rainbow-colored carry case, it’s simply perfect for the budding artist at home or an older professional traveling with children. It’s also a fantastic resource for teachers and art class students who maintain their own supplies.
– Champion Stealth Sling Backpack. Select Champion backpacks feature a 15% discount for Prime Day. This specific product is a great solution for students, teachers, bike riders, campers and hikers who need a smaller backpack to carry short trip essentials. It features plenty of exterior and interior utility slip and zipper pockets, durable construction, and an affordable price.
– Acer Aspire 1 A115-32-C96U Slim Laptop: There’s a good reason that people still invest in the Acer Inspire 1, even with plenty of newer models on the market. This handy, slim-profile workhorse delivers on Acer’s promise of providing a highly portable device and stellar performance for nearly any task.
It features a 15.6-inch Full HD display with a 16:9 aspect ratio, 4 GB DDR4 Memory, 128 GB eMMC storage, Wi-Fi 5 (aka 802.11ac), 1×1 MU-MIMO 2 and a lot of ports (USB 3.2 Gen, USB 2.0, HDMI 2.0, HDCP support, Ethernet (RJ-45) Port and Headphone/Speaker/Line-Out Jack).
This ultra-popular deal can’t be beat because it also comes with Windows 11 Home (S), the latest Celeron processor, and a full year’s subscription to Office 365 Personal.
Products for Pet Parents
Amazon and retailers have a lot of great deals for pet parents over the next two days. Although Amazon offers an exclusive deal with Wild One that takes up to 30% off select Wild One products, the savings don’t stop with just one manufacturer:
– Ruggable Rugs: One of the most popular deals for pet owners and literally anyone who needs a great rug comes from Ruggable and includes full-size living room, dining room and other rugs that make cleaning a snap. It doesn’t matter if a pet, a young child or a clumsy adult has an accident. Each rug features a machine-washable cover and an easy-to-wipe, separate, non-slip back.
– Dwanton Dog Crate: Dog owners who want a crate that matches their home furniture don’t need to settle for a black-wire-only option. This Dwanton crate in Dark Gray, Greige or Rustic Brown is a multi-functional piece of strong, wood particleboard furniture that blends in as an end or side table while providing a small, medium or large fur baby with comfort on a matching cushion.
The current Prime Day deal applies to only the smaller and medium options. That said, Amazon also offers steep coupons for the large and medium products.
– OIIBO 27 Gallon Reptile Glass Terrarium: Cats and dogs aren’t the only pets in town. Reptile lovers can catch a price break on this tempered-glass terrarium with plenty of ventilation, a top door with full-spectrum light penetration through the mesh, a double front door, quick assembly and disassembly, and a waterproof raised base.
