Amazon Prime Day deals are one of the most anticipated shopping events of the year! Next to Black Friday deals, Amazon Prime Day deals can save you tons of money on everyday necessities, personal indulgences, birthday gifts, and upcoming Christmas gifts. It’s like Christmas in July!
Amazon Prime Day is July 16-17, 2018. It’s actually a day and a half of deals, with some deals coming early for Amazon Prime members.
The awesome deals below are currently available NOW! No need to wait until Amazon Prime Day starts. However, you must jump on these offers before July 17. Because after Amazon Prime Day officially ends, the special coupons and offers won’t be available.
UPDATE: Here are some of the best Amazon Prime Day deals going on NOW! Make sure to get them as soon as possible!
- 23AndMe Ancestry AND Genetic Testing I’ve written about my comparison of Ancestry DNA and 23AndMe DNA testing for my family tree. I’ve also done the health screening with 23AndMe and it is truly fascinating. This extensive testing usually costs $299. During Amazon Prime Day it’s only $99!!!!! That’s $200 in savings!
- LifeStraw Personal Water Filter After a year of traveling across the country – sometimes without power or a water supply – I’ve seen how important it is to be prepared for an emergency situation. Whether you’re camping or making an Emergency Prep Kit, this LifeStraw is a great find. And for $9.99, the price can’t be beat! I’ll be buying many of these for my entire family for emergency stashes.
