Are There Lightning Deals During Prime Day on June 21 and 22?

Amazon will be running Lightning Deals for the rest of the day. If you’re not already familiar, Lightning Deals are short-term extra-special deals on brand name products. The deals don’t last long, so if you want to score, you’ll have to act fast. Some are live for a few hours, others are live for the whole day, but they don’t last forever.

We encourage checking out Lightning Deals, because the savings can be extraordinary. However, we also suggest caution. Lighting Deals require fast action, but it’s not a great idea to skip your research and assume any and every deal is a good deal. It doesn’t always work that way.

If Prime Day Is an Amazon Sale, Why Do Other Retailers Also Have Prime Day Sales?

Clearly Amazon’s 2015 experiment with a mid summer sale was a huge success. There’s no better measure of success in retail or many other things in life than when competitors blatantly copy the original. Walmart, Best Buy, and many other big box and online merchants began having their own summer sales on or around the same dates as Prime Day. They may call the sale something other than Prime Day, but the timing is obvious and it benefits Amazon as well by building more excitement around Prime Day. Walmart’s Sales for Days promotion is a perfect example. Participating merchants include Walmart, Best Buy, Home Deport, and Lowe’s, and many many others.
