Update: See this new post with how to make a number of Amazon Prime Day Deals even better.
Amzaon 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, I’ll be updating this post throughout the day with the latest deals I’ve seen. I’ll certainly still publish separate Quick Deals on some things, but I 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 many opportuntiies for stacking today: whether a shopping portal promo (See: American Airline Shopping Portal: Earn Up To 1,500 Bonus Miles), 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 like Walmart, eBay, Target, Best Buy, and more are already offering sales in an effort to complete. Lowe’s is a retailer that stands out early on: they are offering 10% off site-wide for MyLowe’s, which stacks with coupons, an offer for a free Google Home mini with $150+ purchase, and 10% back via targeted Amex Offer.
When I add a notable deal to the list, I’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.

- Krups EA9010 Barista Automatic One Espresso Maker: $1,999.99 – Stack with AA portal for 10x miles (20,000 miles earned). Reports in the FM Lab are mixed, but it may be possible to use a gift card and earn miles. If that’s true, you could buy discounted gift cards (current best rate is ~7%) or buy gift cards through MileagePlus X for another 3x miles per dollar. This is not an item for me, but I know some people are into these fancy espresso machines. Depending on how you value the miles, this could be a very good deal for this model. I’ll stick with a Keurig (with reusable cups) and a Nespresso 🙂 – so note that I don’t know whether this model is actually worth the price tag. If you’re tempted to buy it, hopefully you do.
