Where to find the most deals on Amazon Prime Day

Amazon is convinced 40 per cent of its deals will be coming from small businesses

You need to head to this Amazon sale to check out the sale.

Those with a Prime subscription can, of course, participate in Prime Day, a sort of Black Friday in July, exclusively for members. Whether you want to stock up on tech toys or back-to-school supplies, this sale is one you seriously don't want to miss. You can visit this page to become a prime member.

Amazon Prime can be a pretty good deal for customers who take advantage of the free shipping and streaming video service, but it's also a very good deal for Amazon. You're in, just like the VIP you are.

In just a few days, one of the biggest sales events of the entire year will begin. This year, according to a new report from Consumer Intelligence Research Partners LLC (CIRP), Amazon will open up Prime Day with an estimated 85 million U.S. Prime members-a 35 percent increase year-over-year.

Don't wait until July 10 to start shopping, though.

CIRP estimated that 63 percent of US-based Amazon customers are now Prime members. If you've linked your Amazon Business account to your Prime account, you can get improved order tracking and Amazon's tax exemption program. Like past year, the sale will include both Spotlight and Lightening Deals. Amazon is now a home page for many people.

Outdoor and lifestyle items at 60% off: From ways to improve your property and backyard to camping and tools for outdoor recreation, these deals all drop Monday and last 30 hours.

The online giant has added exclusive deals related to its Prime Now service to its Prime Day shopping extravaganza - a move that will get qualifying purchases to members within two hours.

Like with any major sale, some categories are more deeply discounted than others. More than 100 deals only available to voice shoppers were made available starting Wednesday - almost a week before Prime Day, Amazon said. These items will appear as lighting deals throughout the day on Tuesday.

Amazon is offering new Prime Now promotions in its lead up to Prime Day, July 11.

Alexa: OK, so Alexa is slightly creepy, but she could be your key to scoring the best deals this year.

Amazon also sold 90,000 TVs and thousands of Kindle Paperwhites, Fire TV Sticks and FIre tablets.

Those who use their voices to order products on Prime Day are additionally eligible for Alexa-specific deals. But, if you're already a Prime Member, you probably already own one or more of these devices (I have at least one of each).

"With Amazon attempting to turn Prime Day into another Black Friday, we feel as though it is our duty to hold them to the claim", says Jones.
