Best Amazon Prime Day Deals 2018 For Families

affiliate disclaimer

Could it be…Christmas in July?  Amazon Prime Day has rolled around, offering significant price cuts that have already started.  This massive Amazon sale for Prime members is sometimes called ‘Black Friday in July’.  In 2017 it took place in 13 countries, including the US, Canada, UK, China, and Japan.  We are updating our favorite prime day deals for families at least once a day.

When Is Amazon Prime Day 2018

Officially this year's Prime Day starts 12pm PT on July 16th and ends midnight on July 17th.  This 36 hour flash sale features deals every 5 minutes.  To get everyone in the mood these deals have already started!

There are deals that last all day, deals that have a time limit, and deals that have limited stock (ie they sell out).  A few, if you're lucky, last until the end of the month.  As you can imagine, some of these sales can lead to a bit of a frenzy, but thankfully all from the safety of your home.

What If I Don't Have Amazon Prime?

The sale is only open to Amazon Prime members, but a way to get around this is to sign up for a 30 day free trial.
