For the past two years, Amazon has run “Amazon Prime Day” which for the most part has offered deals similar to or even better then Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals. Fortunately, Amazon announced that it will be running this fabulous sale for the 3rd year in a row, although the exact date is still TBD. In 2015, the one-day-sale was on Wednesday July 15, in 2016 it was on Tuesday July 11, so the assumption is that this year will fall somewhere between July 10 and July 13. Amazon will definitely let us know ahead of time though! And in the past there was Amazon Prime week which offered some deals a week prior to the official “Amazon Prime Day”. Hopefully, they will have a full week of deals this year as well!
While the Amazon Prime Day page is not yet updated with any information for 2017, the description for the Amazon site when you google “Amazon Prime Day” shows that Amazon Prime Day 2017 is coming soon. This page will list all information including dates and deals!
