This year I am all about saving money. I pride myself on being a smart shopper, and am always a bit leery of sales. I know from experience that some sales are more hype than others. Then there are the real deals . . . like Amazon Prime Day. Last year, I did not take advantage of the savings. This year, however, my shopping cart is ready. While the sales will change throughout the 2 day sale, here are some of the items I am eyeing. I wrote this post with teachers in mind for Amazon Prime Day 2020, but really the strategies can apply to many other professions as well. These are affiliate links so if you click on them I may receive a small payment at no extra cost to you.
What is Amazon Prime Day?
Amazon Prime Day is July 13th and 14th. You have to be a Prime subscriber, but don’t worry – if you aren’t you can sign up here for a free 30 day subscription and take advantage of the sale. I would sign up now, to make sure that you can take full advantage of the Prime Day Sales. As teachers, we are constantly going back to school, so if you happen to be in graduate school right now use your school email address and sign up for Amazon Prime Student. With Prime Student you get the same great benefits for half the cost!
What is the Benefit of a Prime Membership?
As a teacher I never have enough time. Prime allows me to have groceries, and many other necessities delivered straight to my front door with no delivery fees! Sundays are a lot less stressful in my house, because I no longer have to visit the grocery store. I also love my free 2 day shipping for just about all of my purchases. I stream music at home and at work for free. Finally, who can resist streaming movies on Amazon prime. I have been a prime member for several years now, and don’t see myself cancelling anytime soon.
What Are The Deals for Prime Day 2020?
What Are Lightening Deals?
The lightening deals are on the above link. These are the deals that WILL sell out, and will disappear within a set period of time. They also tend to be deeply discounted. I like to be ready for these by following the upcoming sales page. If you see a product that you know you’d like to buy when it goes on sale, simply click the button that says “watch this deal” and Amazon will notify you when it is on sale. Then, you have to act quickly : )
The live sales will change throughout both days of this sale. So far I am loving this kindle e-reader. I plan to finish up my professional (and personal) reading this summer using this waterproof kindle by the pool.
The sales will continue to change over the next 48 hours. I will continue visiting the Amazon’s deals on school and college page throughout the sale. Items on this page will be up to 75% off!! Personally, I will stock up on my back to school needs during this sale. So far today I have fallen in love with this organizational beauty! Hopefully you can snag it before the lightening sale ends.
I also never seem to have enough of these base ten blocks which are also on sale now.
I will also splurge on a few items for my new home! Like this Instant Pot which promises to make back to school meal prep easier.
I am also eyeing this Ring video doorbell that comes with an Echo Dot.
