Pre Amazon Prime Day Deals and What to Get on the Big Day

Amazon prime day
The biggest day for Amazon is only 3 days away. With a Prime Day 2018 Guide available and the free Amazon App customers can catch the sales and deals that they’ve been waiting for. From electronics and groceries to clothing and household essentials – there’s something for everyone.

The big day maybe 3 days away, but Amazon has already been kicking off the countdown with some exclusive deals for Prime members.

For those who buy their groceries and household items online, Amazon is already offering 30% off their everyday essentials from their own brands. This includes:

Mama Bear Organic Food Pouches: $11.03/pack of 12

Wickedly Prime Organic Herbal Tea: 12 count, pack of 3 for $16.47

Bai Supertea Tennessee Braspberry Tea: 18 Fluid Oz bottles, count of 12 for $23.88

Laundry Essentials are already marked 20% off. Starbucks Refreshers Sparkling Juice Blends, Doritos, and granola bars, along with tons of other snacks are already up to 25% off.

For all the techy people out there, perhaps the big thing is the Echo Show. It’s like Alexa – but better (if that’s even possible). “Alexa can now show you things” such as Amazon Video content, music lyrics. It can be programmed to monitor certain areas of your home and with 8 microphones and noise cancellation, it can hear one from any direction.

However, the real deal may be the Echo Dot. It’s marked down to $34.99. If you prefer to listen to Alexa and do not care for Alexa to show you things, this is your best bet.

I am personally very excited about the Prime Video deals. Select digital movies such as Wonder and The Commuter are up to 50% off. A large selection of movies are available for rent at $1.99. Favorite movies and TV shows on DVD and Blu-ray are discounted as well. The Amazing Spider-Man 1 & 2 Collection is just one of the hot deals.

Don’t forget about the Prime Exclusive launches. Take a look at the newest electronics, toys, decor, household items, and clothing that are available for Prime members. Some of my picks are:

The Squish Wireless Charger. It is a wireless charging pad and phone stand all in one. Priced at $29.99, this wireless essential seems hard not to purchase. In need of an external hard drive? Seagate’s got a 1TB one on sale for $64.99.

Children’s clothing and baby toys and accessories are just a few of the items available as well. You can buy your expecting friends a crib, or snag a set of cute Hallmark greeting cards here.

It’s definitely still summer time. With summertime comes grilling – and what better than a portable one? The Coleman RoadTrip 285 Portable Stand-Up Propane Grill has 3 independently adjustable burners and InstaStart ignition for push-button, matchless lighting.

Audible has significantly grown over the years. With all the busy schedules these days, many people cannot find the time to sit down and enjoy a book. The solution is Audible. You can listen to it wherever you are, whatever you are doing; while you workout, drive to work, or cook dinner.

Audible has such a large collection of books, it’s impossible not to find something to your liking. Amazon Prime members have specific books exclusively available to them. “A Room with a View” being one of them. Right now, Prime members can also get the subscription for $4.95/month (normally $14.95/month).

So what about the big day? Amazon Prime Day offers so many amazing deals and sales, it may be overwhelming to know what really is worth buying and what isn’t a must have at the moment. How does one prioritize? Here are some picks worth checking out:

Mayfair Liner 100% Egyptian Cotton Sheets: $48.74

Dyson Ball Multi Floor Upright Vacuum: $149. 50

Four Months of Amazon Music for $1. This is an extended trial for newcomers.

This year, Whole Foods is participating in the countdown to Amazon Prime Day. All Prime members need to do is download the Whole Foods or Amazon app and scan the Prime barcode at checkout.

Prime members also get $10 credit to Amazon when they spend $10 from now until the 17th at Whole Foods. Whole Foods is also offering Prime members exclusive deals:

Organic Strawberries: 1 lb containers are 2/$5

RX Protein bars: 2/$3

Allegro bagged coffee: buy one get one free

Boneless chicken breasts: $3.99/lb

Self Serve tea cookies by the pound: 40% off

No matter what you are on the hunt for, there’s something for you to buy on Amazon Prime Day. The hot deals have already started and it’s only countdown to the big day, so go check out what’s in store for you.
