Amazon Prime Day is July 11, 2017. Think of Black Friday -- but only on and with deals changing every five minutes (literally!).

Here are some tips to help you get the most out of Prime Day:

  • Some of the best Prime Deals are on Amazon products -- like the Amazon Echo (Alexa) or the Amazon Firestick. Echos, for example, are half off.
  • Check competitors' sites., for example, has some deals that beat Amazon's Prime Day prices. Ally Kraemer found a CharBroil grill for a fraction of Amazon's price on
  • Gift cards are a sometimes forgotten deal. Some gift cards on cost $10 less than their value, like this $50 Outback Steakhouse gift card for $40.
  • Deals change every five minutes -- so don't be surprised if some items in your shopping cart expire.
  • You can get "watch this deal" alerts on your phone so you don't miss out on a good buy.
