After a rough start in 2015, Amazon Prime Day will be back for its third year, hopefully with some great gamer deals like the ones they had last year. If you haven't blown all your disposable income on the Steam Summer Sale, then start saving for Prime Day on July 11.
The huge one-day sale will cover plenty of things, but gamers will usually fare pretty well, too. If you are unfamiliar with Prime Day, it is essentially a Black Friday-like event in the middle of the summer. Deals will actually start at 9 p.m. ET on July 10, but carry over for the bulk of the day on July 11. Amazon has even set up a guide to tell you how to make the most out of the sale.
The sale will offer Spotlight deals on items that will last until stock is gone. There will also be Lightning deals that can happen as often as every five minutes and run for a very limited time. Both offer steep discounts of various products.
Amazon is already offering some specials. if you stream a video to your TV through Amazon Prime, you can save $10 off your next purchase. The offer expires on Prime Day, so just save it until then. You can get another $10 the first time you sign into the Amazon app on your iOS or Android device. That $10 is good until July 31.
Obviously, you need to be a Prime member to partake in the sales. You can always sign up for a 30-day free membership, and get Overwatch Gold Loot Box at the same time tied to your free associated Twitch Prime membership. Of course, you can always become a Prime member the regular way through the $100 yearly membership fee.
