Amazon Prime Day 2019 deals in the US begin July 15 and represent the biggest sales you’ll find all summer on things you want to buy – if you’re a Prime member.
We have an ‘Early Prime Day‘ deals list curated and updated today, ahead of the 48-hour sales marathon on laptops, video games, 4K TVs, phones and, of course, Amazon’s own Echo speakers.
The best Amazon Prime Day deals begin there, too: the Echo Dot price at $24.99– up to 50% off. It’s coupled with sales on AirPods, the entry-level iPad, Fitbit, and Roomba. And head of these discounts is a XIDU laptop on July 14, up to 40% off, which seems like Amazon’s way of secure more Prime membership in the lead up the official Prime Day dates.
It’s going to get a bit chaotic leading up to the July 15 start date and time, so let’s begin there to see when the bulk of the savings take place.
We know Amazon Prime Day starts on Monday, July 15 just after midnight (at 12:01am PDT). Prime Day ends on Tuesday, July 16 (at 11:59pm PDT).
Keep in mind the official Prime Day start time is based on where the retail company is located: on the West coast. So some deals may come online at 3am ET.

What were last year’s best-selling Prime Day deals
Prime members around the world purchased more than 100 million products during the last Prime Day event. The top-selling items from last year’s Prime Day included a mixture of home goods, electronics, and Amazon devices. In fact, it was the biggest event ever for Amazon devices with the Fire TV Stick and Echo Dot leading the pack of best-selling items worldwide. The top selling products consisted of the 6-Qt Instant Pot, Fire TV stick, Echo Dot, 23andMe DNA Test, and the LifeStraw personal water filter.
A brief history of Prime
Prime Day first launched four years ago and has grown into the biggest shopping day of the year with last year’s even surpassing Cyber Monday and Black Friday with 89 million visitors logging on to the site with 100 million products purchased during the sale event. Globally it was the biggest day of sales in Amazon’s history, and Amazon Prime Day 2019 is going to be even bigger. It didn’t just increase in terms of territories or numbers, but the sale itself lasted longer too. Where 2017’s Prime Day ran for only one day (well, 30 hours), 2018 ran for a day and a half (36 hours). And now we’re looking at 48, so Prime members will have even more time to snag the hottest deals of the year.
How can I sign up for Amazon Prime?
To participate in the big shopping event, you must be an Amazon Prime Member. Your membership will not only let you partake in Prime Day, but you’ll also have access to Amazon Prime movies, books, music, photos, and more. You can sign up here for a 30-day trial and cancel at any time. All you need is an Amazon account with a valid credit card tied to the account. Once you sign up for your free trial, you’ll have access to all the Prime benefits, receive free two-day shipping and partake in the biggest shopping event of the year.
Amazon Prime 1-day delivery
Amazon just recently announced plans to offer free one-day shipping for Prime members on most orders. Amazon’s CFO Brian Olsavky revealed the ambitious project during Amazon’s first-quarter earnings call. To achieve this, the tech giant says they plan to invest $800 million in the second quarter of 2019 and continue its expansion of their fulfillment and logistics network. Amazon currently offers free 2-day shipping for all Prime members and offers free one-day and same-day delivery on certain items in eligible zip codes. Amazon’s future plans include increasing the locations and available items so free one-day delivery replaces the standard two-day Prime delivery window. While we don’t think the new one-day delivery will be rolled out in time for Prime Day, we do believe there will be more items available for one-day and same-day delivery in eligible zip codes for the big shopping day.
