Amazon’s highly-anticipated annual shopping event, Amazon Prime Day, is finally here. This year, Amazon Prime Day starts on Monday, July 15 at midnight and runs for 48 hours. First launched in 2015, Amazon Prime Day has become “Black Friday in July” for online shoppers, with an astonishing number of products going on sale each year.
According to Amazon, Prime Day 2018 was a record-setting event for the company. Last year’s Prime Day saw sales surpass Cyber Monday, Black Friday, and previous Prime Days, when comparing 36-hour periods. That means Prime Day has become Amazon’s biggest shopping event in history, and 2019 will likely be bigger than ever. A total of 17 countries participated in last year’s Prime Day, with more than 100-million products purchased.
With more and more shoppers now subscribing to Amazon Prime, you’ll want to be ready for Amazon Prime Day 2019 if you want to take advantage of some deals before they sell out. Here’s your guide to everything you need to know about this year’s Amazon Prime Day, including some of the best deals for car owners. Check back often as we’ll be updating this page throughout Prime Day 2019 with more deals as they go live.

Amazon Prime Day 2019 will start on Monday, July 15 and will run for 48 hours. Amazon promises that 2019 will include more than a million deals worldwide, including huge discounts on Alexa-enabled devices.
Last year, Prime Day 2018 kicked off on Monday, July 16 at 12:00 PM Pacific / 3:00 PM Eastern and ran for 36 hours, so this year’s event will be longer.
What Goes on Sale During Amazon Prime Day?
Last year, over one-million deals were available exclusively to Amazon Prime members. In other words, a lot of products go on sale during Amazon Prime Day. Based on previous years, there are plenty of automotive items that will likely go on sale for Amazon Prime Day 2019. Expect handy accessories such as portable jump starters, power inverters, tire pressure gauges, and car seat organizers to see big discounts. Car detailing enthusiasts will want to stock up on their favorite car cleaning supplies during Prime Day, especially items such as microfiber towels or even an orbital buffer.
This year, expect to see plenty of automotive goods to go on sale. If you’ve been keeping an eye on certain tools or even aftermarket accessories, you might want to add them to your Amazon Wish List so you can easily see if there are deals once Prime Day goes live. AutoGuide.com will definitely be showcasing some of the best automotive Prime Day deals, so keep an eye out on the site for updates as we get closer to the sale day.
What are the Benefits of Amazon Prime?
Not an Amazon Prime member? The good news is, Amazon offers a 30-day free trial for Prime, which means you can actually sign up and take advantage of Prime Day 2019 when it happens without forking over any extra cash. In fact, Prime Day 2018 saw more new Prime members on July 16 than any previous day in Amazon history. Now you may think that an Amazon Prime membership only means fast shipping, but there’s so much more. Two-day shipping is standard for all Prime members, while select cities also offer same-day delivery and one-day shipping.
In addition to getting your orders quickly, Prime members also get to take advantage of exclusive deals (30-minute early access to Lightning Deals) on Amazon, exclusive deals at Whole Foods Market, access to award-winning movies and TV shows through Amazon Prime Video, free games and loot with Twitch, and access to over two-million songs on Amazon Music without any ads.
Amazon Prime costs $12.99 a month, or $119 a year. You can also sign up for just Amazon Prime Video for $8.99 a month.
Students can save even more on Amazon Prime, with Prime Student costing $6.49 a month or $59 a year.

Signing up for an Amazon Prime membership is really easy. You can simply click here to start your 30-day free trial to Amazon Prime. If you’re a student, make sure you click the student link to take advantage of a 6-month trial courtesy of Sprint. You will have to hand over your credit card information to sign up to Amazon Prime, even to access the 30-day trial. You can always cancel at anytime.
Is Amazon Prime Day Better than Black Friday or Cyber Monday?
The first couple Amazon Prime Day sales were a bit lackluster, especially for car owners. You’d have a hard time finding shoppers who believed Amazon Prime Day 2015 or 2016 were better than Black Friday or Cyber Monday. Last year however, the sheer volume of products that went on sale was impressive, and there were some deals that couldn’t be beat.
Whether you find Amazon Prime Day better than Black Friday or Cyber Monday largely depends on the types of products you’re shopping for. Automotive products aren’t at the top of every retailer’s sales list for Black Friday or Cyber Monday deals—they’re not the greatest gifts after all—so Prime Day edges out the other shopping holidays in that respect. Because Amazon covers such a wide range of products, you’ll likely find some great deals on automotive goods during Prime Day that you may not come across on Black Friday or Cyber Monday.
Besides, with Prime Day taking place in July, you’ll have plenty of time to save up again for Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
