Amazon Prime Day 2018 officially starts on July 16 at 3 pm EST, and it will last for 36 hours this year (Prime Day and a half?). Last year it was Amazon’s biggest sales day, even bigger than Black Friday, and this year the buzz is that there will be even better deals for us.
How does Amazon Prime Day work?
During Prime Day, different items will go on sale for a limited amount of time. You need to be a Prime member to participate, but if you’re not signed up for Prime, you can do a 30-day free trial, and still take advantage of the big sale.
Rumor has it that Amazon will post new items for sale every 5 minutes.
As we find out which deals Amazon will be offering that would be of interest to busy moms, or anyone who wants to get organized, we will post them here.
Amazon may offer some pre-Prime Day deals as well, so it’s a good idea to keep your eye on the sales – especially if you’re hoping to get a deal on something specific.
Check back often, as we will be updating the page frequently!
