Amazon Prime Day 2017: What You Need to Know

Amazon Prime Day 2017: What You Need to Know

Summertime is here, and that means that Prime Day is right around the corner, and this year, it’s bigger than ever. The event itself is expected to last 30 hours, though Amazon will run select discounts for an entire week.

Amazon has not yet announced when it will hold this year’s Prime Day, but we do know it will take place in the second week of July. Last year, it fell on July 12, and the year before was the 15th. This post will serve as a hub for different Prime Day discounts, so watch this space for up-to-date news and the very best deals.

 What kind of deals can we expect to see? Last year’s hottest deals included $30 off select Kindles, the Amazon Fire Tablet for only $33.33, 20 percent off Amazon warehouse deals, and $30 off Echo speakers. There was a fair bit of variety on offer, so there’s a good chance something will catch your eye. As soon as we get word on which products are on sale, we’ll update you here on all of the top-notch bargains.

In recent years, Amazon has doubled down on making its own hardware. If you’re already hooked into the Amazon ecosystem for music and streaming video, this will be an excellent opportunity to grab some Amazon gear on the cheap. Big discounts on the likes of Fire tablets, Echo smart speakers, and Amazon’s selection of Fire Sticks and set-top boxes are all but guaranteed.

While many of the staples will be on sale for the entire event, what you really need to watch out for is the thousands of Lightning deals. These limited-stock offers are the cream of the crop, and often include the steepest discounts around, so serious bargain hunters will want to check back often. We’ll certainly be watching them like a hawk.
