Our team of shopping experts is here live with you over the next two days, scouring the deals in real time. From electronics to kitchen appliances to beauty and style deals, we’ve got the all right here. Scroll for our favorite Prime Day alternative deals and Amazon finds across the web.

What is Amazon Prime Day?

Prime Day is a massive sale event that takes place each year and is exclusive to Amazon Prime Members. Prime Day is usually held over two days to give you plenty of time to shop.

When is Amazon Prime Day 2023?

Amazon Prime Day typically takes place in the summer, and 2023 is no exception. This year’s mega-savings event is on Tuesday, July 11 and Wednesday, July 12.

If you’re not a member, you can sign up for a free 30-day trial now, so you can start savings well in advance of Prime Day. If you want to wait, you can sign up for Amazon Prime anytime, including during the event itself, but it’s really best to do it in advance. After all, Prime Members get plenty of perks, including free delivery, access to Prime Video, free Prime Gaming and special sale prices all year.

What type of products have the best sales?

There’s lots of good stuff on serious markdown. “We will see deals on millions of products, but the most exciting deals will be on Amazon’s proprietary brands, like Echo, Fire, Ring and Amazon Essentials,” according to shopping expert Trae Bodge.

Michelle Madhok, online shopping expert and founder of deals site SheFinds.com, agrees. “The biggest discounts are always on Amazon products: Amazon devices such as the Kindle, Echo Dot and Fire TV Stick are frequently offered at discounted prices during Prime Day,” she tells Yahoo Life.

But there are more than Amazon-brand products on sale. “Other brands that sell their items on Amazon will also be offering deals,” Bodge says. “The categories are vast, but as in previous years, many of the deals will be centered around the home category, namely smart-home devices and small home appliances.”

What should you stock up on?

There are a lot of great deals to take advantage of, and they’re across a wide range of categories. Madhok says electronics are usually winners, specifically smartphones, laptops, tablets, headphones and smart home devices. She also recommends looking at home and kitchen appliances, including refrigerators, washing machines, blenders and air fryers.

“Many clothing brands and beauty companies participate in Prime Day too, offering discounts on their products,” Madhok says. “This includes makeup, skincare, clothing and shoes.”

Even simple things, such as Amazon Basics toilet paper and Amazon Fresh coffee “usually offer good markdowns,” she says.

How to get the best deals on Prime Day

It’s easy to go overboard on Prime Day, but Madhok suggests having a plan. “I recommend creating a list of items you need or have been eyeing for a while, setting a budget for yourself and comparing prices across different retailers to ensure that you’re getting the best deal,” she says.

Some other tips from Bodge:

  • Add your favorite products to your shopping cart and then check in on the cart during Prime Day.

  • Add your favorites to a wish list in the Amazon apps and receive notifications if those items go on sale, or subscribe to receive deal notifications for recently viewed items.

  • Search for deals of the day in the Amazon App or in the Amazon Assistant browser plug-in.

  • Subscribe to receive deal notifications for your recently viewed items by visiting the Prime Early Access Sale page on the Amazon app between now and the event to create deal alerts. “Once the sale begins, you will receive alerts for any deals that are available,” Bodge says.

  • Click on “Watch the Deal” in “Upcoming Deals” to receive alerts for that item.

If you’re a Prime member, you can also take advantage of “Invite-Only” deals. Those are products with special deals that Prime members can request access to. Check out the top navigation bar on the Deals page and click on the “Invite-Only” icon with TV to explore the special discounts.
