On July 15, Amazon will offer special deals to their prime customers.

Savvy consumers may benefit from tomorrow’s “Christmas in July “24 hour sale from AMAZON, Target and Walmart. On Monday, July 15, 2019, the three shopping retailers will go head to head to try  to out sell each other and shoppers may benefit from the deals.   The AMAZON sale is targeted at the website’s prime customers and will offer deals on electronics and flat screen TVs.   As an AMAZON Prime customer ( I pay every year for the privilege of getting discounts and expedited shipping) I’m looking forward to shopping at AMAZON tomorrow.  If you’re not AMAZON Prime now, you can sign up for it just to shop the sale on a trial basis here.   Then, you can cancel your subscription to Prime after the sale ends. If you  cancel your subscription before it renews you can avoid the over one hundred dollars US annual membership charge.  AMAZON is making all these great offers as a marketing push to sign-up PRIME members, but you can sign-up and just use the trial membership to shop  Here’s what’s on our radar for deals.


Some of the Amazon discounts include up to 30% off of Apple Watches and iPads , savings of up to 70 percent on top kitchen brands, an Amazon Fire HD 7 tablet for $60 off (regularly retails for $139), and savings on  Nikon COOLPIX cameras.

However, deals across the AMAZON website are expected including savings on Beauty & Fashion products.  AMAZON has promised 30% off fashion, jewelry and watches on July 15 & 16.

You’ll also find saving up to 50% on select J.Crew Mercantile clothing.  Look for the J.Crew Mercantile Women’s Short-Sleeve Floral Ruffle Wrap Midi Dress on sale for $59.50.  (pictured above)

Believe me, I am shopping this one now to check out the bargains.
