I’ve purchased some of my all-time favorite products from Amazon. My desk chair, the oversized mirror that sits in my bedroom, the emotional-support water bottle I take everywhere—heck, I even bought my coffee table on Amazon. I’m a sucker for a good deal and fast shipping, and you know Amazon does both of those things well. And there’s no better time to shop the mega-retailer than during Amazon Prime Day.

Back again this July, Prime Day offers deals that rival even Black Friday and Cyber Monday-level savings. This summer’s sale promises to be as big as ever, but with a few twists that you’re going to want to know about before you start shopping.

Read on to learn everything you need to know to make the most of Amazon Prime Day, including when the sale starts and how to find the absolute best deals.

When Is Amazon Prime Day 2024?

This year’s Amazon Prime Day runs from Tuesday, July 16, through Wednesday the 17th. The massive 48-hour sale officially goes live at 12:01 a.m. Pacific Daylight Time (that’s 3:01 a.m. Eastern), but we know some items are bound to sell out well before then. Plus, Amazon will be dropping new deals as often as every five minutes during certain periods throughout the sale, so keep your eyes peeled for extra savings.

How to Shop the Best Deals from Amazon Prime Day

Amazon Prime Day is only available for Prime members, so you’ll want to sign up for a membership (or a free trial) ASAP. It costs $14.99 a month or $139 annually, but of course, you’ll get a ton of benefits like super-fast, free delivery in addition to access to the sale. If you like placing an order and having it arrive within a day or two, the membership fee is well worth it.

During this year’s sale, Amazon is also offering certain deals on an invite-only basis. Starting right now, you can request an invitation to certain items that’ll be on sale during Amazon Prime Day. The program applies to some of the best deals that are expected to sell out quickly, including 55% off these Sony wireless headphones and 58% off this face-cleansing set from FOREO. If you score an invite, Amazon will send you an email during the sale with a unique link to purchase the item at the deal price. Since invites are limited, you’ll want to jump on this ASAP if you’re interested in any of these special deals.

Another hot tip for scoring the best deals? Set up deal alerts so you’ll be notified about any sales on items you’ve got your eye on. You can do this starting right now by visiting the Prime Day event page in the Amazon Shopping app. Then once the price drops on your item, you’ll be the first to know.
