If you haven't heard of Amazon Prime Day, let me put it this way: If Charles Dickens were alive today, A Christmas Carol would have taken place in the summertime. That's because Prime Day is basically Christmas in July — except you don't get any fruitcake or ugly sweaters. Instead, you save a ton on high priced items you couldn't normally afford.
On Tuesday, July 11th, Prime members will have exclusive access to tons of amazing deals. And starting this year, early access to shopping will start at 6 p.m. PT / 9 p.m. ET on Monday, July 10 — with new markdowns popping up as often as every five minutes.
(Not a Prime member? Sign up here for a free 30-day trial, plus you'll get access to all of today's deals.)
From deals that last all day to lightning deals that stick around only for an hour or so, there is sure to be something for everyone and every budget. But these bargains will sell out fast, so keep an eye on your Amazon app to be apprised of the latest. Of course, since you might not be able to sit next to your laptop all day waiting for Amazon to drop some savings, we're compiling a list of the very best Prime Day has to offer.
