If you love Amazon’s Prime Day, the 2019 version promises to be better than ever before.

Amazon has announced that its annual shopfest will be spread out over two days this year — it will start at midnight on Monday, July 15, and run for 48 hours.

The online retail giant says it will offer more than one million deals worldwide during the 48-hour Prime Day event. And you can enjoy deals starting now. According to Amazon:

“…members will find the biggest Prime Day deals ever on Alexa-enabled devices. And one of the best Prime Day deals starts today — save $120 on Toshiba HD 43-inch Fire TV Edition Smart TV, only $179.99, through June 30 or while supplies last.”

You can snag one other deal right now: Save up to 40% off the Key for Garage myQ Smart Garage Hub + Amazon Cloud Cam (Key Edition) Kit. The price is now $99.98, Amazon’s lowest ever.

Saving money when you shop at Amazon

To enjoy these deals, you’ll need to sign up for Amazon Prime. There are many reasons to do so. For more on the advantages of membership, check out “How Amazon Prime Can Save You $665 a Year.

While Prime can help you score some great deals, you can increase your savings by shopping intelligently.

For example, tracking Amazon pricing can help you determine when an item drops to its lowest price. A great way to do this is to use CamelCamelCamel. As we explain in “7 Free Tools That Will Save You More Money on Amazon Purchases“:

“This Amazon price tracker will email you when an item you’re watching drops to the price you want to pay. Set up an account, add links to the products you want to watch, and then set a desired price.”

Finally, be sure to read “7 Ways You Can Score Free Amazon Gift Cards” to make sure you squeeze the most savings out of your Amazon shopping.
