Amazon announced to offer two times the TV deals compared to Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2015 combined. Overall, Amazon will offer over 100,000 deals during the Prime Day 2016 sale.
The Prime Day sale is featuring three types of deals: Prime Day Spotlight Deals, Amazon Lightning Deals, Prime Savings and Deals.
According to Amazon, Prime Day spotlight deals feature top brands and popular items with deep discounts that last until we run out of stock. These are the best deals you'll find on Prime Day.
The Amazon Lightning Deals are a promotion that lasts for a short time, usually just a few hours. When a Lightning Deal is available, you'll see additional information on the product page. A status bar indicator showing the percentage of items held by others and a timer showing how long you have to add the deal to your Cart.
You can set a reminder for an upcoming Amazon Lightning Deal by adding a push notification in your smartphone's Amazon App. The Amazon Shopping app is essential to score the best Amazon Prime Day 2016 deals. To enable deal notifications, go to notifications in your Amazon App and enable "Your watched & Waitlisted Deals." Allow notifications from the Amazon app, to receive the notifications of the availability of a new deal.
Lastly, Prime Savings and Deals are promotions that run all day or within Prime Day. When you browse the Prime Day Deals page for Prime Member promotions, click the See Details button to view the discount amount. When you add an item to your card and check out, the discount is applied in the checkout page.
Amazon got criticized heavily last year for how difficult it was to get the best Prime Day deals. This year Amazon is providing much more guidance for Prime Members on how to get the best deals. As mentioned above, the Amazon app is essential. The deal notifications are a big advantage to stay on top of the deals you want to get.
It is not clear yet, if Amazon will finally provide the schedule of all Prime Day Lightning deals. In the past, the best Lightning deals showed up at random, without appearing in the timeline of upcoming deals. Amazon has created a Facebook Event Page for Prime Day. Amazon will feature on Facebook tips and tricks on getting Prime Day deals. Make sure you attend this page, to not miss out on any tips to score the best deals.
If you own an Amazon Echo, keep an eye out for special deals only available through Alexa on Prime Day 2016.
