Amazon Prime Day 2019: Navigating the Sales + Best Deals for Families

This post contains affiliate links. Please see the Disclosure page for additional information.

Known as "Black Friday" in July, Amazon Prime Day will feature over a million deals.  

I will be posting loads of Facebook deals on my Facebook deals fan page and a few more exclusive ones in my Facebook deals group.  This is my fifth year covering Prime Day and I know that people get overwhelmed, so I will be updating this post throughout Prime Day to include the best deals.  

Note that lightning deals are not included below but you can find them on the Facebook deals fan page .  

Also, in my Facebook deals group is an “in search of thread.” Comment there with what you are looking for and I will try to respond, or at least use that post to inspire what I post.

Keep checking back to see updates to this post. Also note that I wrote much of this before the deals went live and links to most of the deals weren’t available. I will work to add links to the deals as quickly as I can on Monday.

Background / Tips

When

Prime Day begins at 3 a.m. ET on Monday, July 15 and ends 11:59 p.m. ET on Tuesday night, July 17.  A few deals are available in advance (see below).

Types of Deals

Deals of the Day / Promos

These include categories of items (like clothing), as well as big ticket items (past years included Instapot and accessoriesiRobot Roomba vacuum and Anova Sous Vide.

If you are looking for something specific, click here  and type whatever you are looking for into the search bar. Items may be an additional 20-30% off at the final step of checkout (so if it doesn't seem discounted, try adding it to your cart and going all the way to the final checkout stage).

You can already check out the landing page for Prime Day toy deals (including new releases).

Amazon rolls out loads of new coupons for Prime Day.  Click here to get to the coupon landing page and type in your favorite brand to see if a coupon applies.  

Coupons are typically offered on groceries, drinks, toiletries, baby food, baby formula and diapers.  There is a special page featuring up to 25% coupons on snacks and drinks.  

Lightning Deals

Lightning deals go live every five minutes and often sell out almost instantly.  You can typically see all lightning deals 24 hours in advance.  You can find all active and upcoming lightning deals here.  You can filter by category.  For example, here is the landing page for all lightning deals on baby items.  

New Product Launches 

These aren't deals exactly, but they are new products launching on Prime Day exclusively for Prime Members.  You can find all the new product offerings here

Some that I'm excited about -- 


This Year's Top Deals

NOTE THAT ANYTHING IN ITALICS IS FROM LAST YEAR AND I’M VERIFYING WHETHER IT WILL REPEAT THIS YEAR. LINKS FOR MANY OF THE DEALS LISTED BELOW AREN’T AVAILABLE AT THE TIME THAT I’M PUBLISHING, SO I TRIED TO LINK THE CATEGORY. LIKE LAST YEAR, I PLAN TO CREATE A SEPARATE POST WITH MY FAVORITE DEALS FOR FAMILIES. SEE MY FULL 2018 DEALS BIBLE HERE.

I will be posting to my Facebook deals fan page and  deals group in real time and adding the best deals here when I have time to take a break from rapid fire.
