Amazon Prime Day begins today. If you’ve somehow managed to miss the lead-up sales and previous years, Prime Day is a summertime shopping holiday that Amazon has developed over the past couple of years and has turned into a 2-day shopping event. The good news for deal hunters is that lots of other retailers have gotten into the game in order to try to compete, resulting in some solid deals that represent good opportunities for savings (and sometimes for generating points & miles) — even for those who are not Amazon Prime members. Keep in mind that buying stuff you don’t need or wouldn’t have otherwise spent money on isn’t a deal, so be sure you want what you’re buying and that you’ve shopped around to be sure it’s a deal.
Instead of sending out a separate Quick Deal alert with all of the Prime Day-related deals, We’ll be updating this post throughout the day with the latest deals we’ve seen. We will certainly still publish separate Quick Deals in some cases, but we thought many readers would find it useful to have a single comprehensive resource to refer to throughout the day. Additionally, the best of the best deals won’t last long – sliding those into this post will hopefully enable a few readers to scoop them up before they’re gone.
Keep in mind the opportunities for stacking: whether a shopping portal promo (See: Ebates/Rakuten Offering 3x Cashback At 200+ Stores: JCPenney 9%, Walmart 10%, IHG 9% & More), credit card bonus category, or current Amex Offer, there are many ways to save. It’s also worth repeating that it’s a good idea to check on other retailers as websites: Walmart, eBay, Target, Best Buy, and more are already offering sales in an effort to complete.
When we add a notable deal to the list, we’ll tweet / post on Facebook via the Frequent Miler handles and I’ll comment on this post with every deal added. If you aren’t doing so already, you might want to consider following Frequent Miler on Twitter and signing up for mobile notifications (to be notified when we tweet) and/or liking our Facebook page (to be notified of posts there) and/or signing up for our Frequent Miler Insiders Facebook group. Of course, you can also subscribe to the comments section of this post.
Please share any deals you’ve stumbled on in the comments as well. Be patient if your comment doesn’t post immediately; comments with links get caught in our spam filter and have to be individually reviewed. I’ll do my best to check out the deals you submit there and add to the post as appropriate.
Without further ado, here are deals found during Amazon Prime Day, broken down by store. Don’t forget to go through a shopping portal before buying if you are looking to stack savings.
