What is Amazon Prime Day?

Prime Day is Amazon’s answer to Black Friday, when the online megamart’s willingly loses the plot and price slashes hundreds upon hundreds of the products it sells – in fact, Amazon boldly claims it discounts more of its wares on Prime Day than on Black Friday.

Prime Day features two main elements: Deals of the Day and Amazon’s flash sale-like Lightning Deals.

Deals of the Day run for the full 24 hour Prime Day period, while Lightning Deals are usually restricted to a few hours – or even less – and feature even more ludicrous price cuts.

As such, they often sell out quickly, so if you see one you like, we’d recommend snapping it up – Prime Day or not.

When is the next Amazon Prime Day?

In a likelihood, not for some time.

Throughout its existance, Prime Day has been an annual occurance for Amazon, and it typically occurs in July over a 24-hour period.

However, this year, Amazon kick things off early, rolling out the bargains on the evening of Prime Day proper, so the online shopping giant isn’t afraid of shaking things up.

That means there’s a chance – a very, very distant chance – that there could be a second Prime Day in 2017, although in reality, it’ll next take place in July 2018.
