It’s time for the Black Friday Sale of Summer. I’m talking about Amazon Prime Day. You guys know that I love Amazon which is why I’m SO excited for this event. It’s the perfect time to treat yourself and stock up on some essentials. Since Prime Day can be very overwhelming I’m going to share my top picks & advice for efficiently shopping. Let’s break it down.

What is Amazon Prime Day?

+ a day exclusively for Amazon Prime members- this includes trial members, Amazon Household, Fresh, Family & Student memberships.

+ the sale begins July 10th at 9 EST / 6 PST PM.

+ THOUSANDS of deals leading up to & throughout the day.


+ Spotlight: available until the limited stock runs out.

+ Lightning: limited amount of time until the deal expires.

+ Savings: promotions that run all day.

How do you prepare?

+ be an Amazon Prime member.
+ if you’re not, sign up for the FREE 30 day trial or a 6 month trial if you’re a student.

+ download the Amazon App to never miss a deal. You can go to “Today’s Deals”, click “Upcoming” and view all deals 24 hours before they’re live. Tap “Watch This Deal” and you’ll get an alert when it’s starting.

+ create a wish list to get notified if items you want go on sale.

+ join the event page for exclusive announcements.

+ leading up to the sale you will find my top picks on the blog.

+ create your own wish list. Now is the perfect time to splurge on that camera you’ve had your eyes on.


+ use Alexa & get early access to Prime Day offers.

+ if you’ve never used Alexa to order before, receive $10 in Amazon credit.

+ if you don’t have Prime, sign up through Alexa and get a $20 discount.

+ sign up for Amazon Music Unlimited and receive 4 months of access for $0.99.

From beauty products to tech items, Amazon has everything you can imagine. With Prime most of those items get to you in a day. The amount of trips to the store it’s saved me is amazing. It’s really just efficient. Also none of this is sponsored. Just obsessed with Amazon. Anyway, you will find me stocking up on lots of essentials like granola & oils during the sale.  Happy shopping : )
