The biggest shopping day of the summer is almost here. What are we talking about? Amazon Prime Day 2018 of course.
What do we know about Amazon Prime Day so far?
Well, we know that this year the deals are going to be even better than the past 3 years combined. As this day has become even more popular amongst online shoppers, Amazon is doing everything in their power to make this summer event bigger and better than ever.
While we don’t know the exact date it will fall this year, we are thinking that (based on the past 4 years), it will fall sometime in mid-July. Tuesday, July 10th is a big possibility.
Don’t worry, we’ll keep you posted on upcoming deals, dates, the whole nine so you can save some serious cash to fund your business.
If you haven’t signed up for Amazon Prime yet, now would be good a time!
We’ve got the date! [Update]
Looks like prime day will start Monday, July 16, 2018 this year! Hooray! There will be lots of sales to watch. We’ll keep you updated.
Sounds good, but does Amazon support small business?
Why are we getting all excited about an Amazon event, you may ask. That’s a good question. While Amazon isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, they do support a lot of small business owners too. Many small (and social impact) companies use Amazon as their main distributor. In today’s ecommerce-centric world, there is no doubt that the big guys, like Amazon, are going to get some slack for growth but we still think the deals are worth it.
You all know the struggles of taking a small, or mid-sized business and making it large. Watching your cash flow, finding those deals (especially in the bootstrap days) can mean the difference between survival and success. We want to help!
When is Amazon Prime Day 2018?
While Amazon hasn’t officially announced the actual day yet, we can take a guess and say that it should be around the same time of year that it always has:
The first Prime Day was Wednesday, July 15, 2015.
The second Prime Day was Tuesday, July 12, 2016.
The third Prime Day was a multi-day affair that started late on Monday, July 10, 2017, went through all of Tuesday, July 11, and ended early on Wednesday, July 12.
So, keep this page bookmarked. We’ll let you know as soon as we do!
Our best guess — Prime Day 2018 will likely be Tuesday, July 10, but may encompass Monday, July 9 and Wednesday, July 11 as well.
How to get the best deals on Amazon Prime Day?
The best way to get big deals on Amazon Prime day is to do your research. Amazon will start to send out notices beforehand so you can watch those deals that you have your eye on. Now is the best time of year to get deals on electronics, office supplies, everyday household items, and subscription services like audible (we’re hoping).
What kind of deals can I expect on Prime Day?
Don’t be surprised if you see some seriously significant discounts. After the first year, Amazon has really ramped up the deals. It’s worth waiting for. Of course, all Amazon-branded products like Fire TV, tablets, e-readers, and Echo will be on sale. Some models for savings of 40%!
Not every product on Amazon is discounted though. The best tip I can give you is to know ahead of time what you want to buy and keep checking (and comparing) the prices now so you know if it is a great deal, or not. Some brands use these days to discount products they want to get rid of, with deals that are not any better than a flash sale. So, do your homework. Choose the brands you already know and trust, and watch prices now.
Of course, just because it’s on Amazon doesn’t mean it’s the best price out there!
