The best offers require an invitation.
If you want the best Prime Day deals, you need to start early. Amazon hides some of its best discounts behind an invitation system – you must request access to these offers before July 11. If Amazon accepts your application, you’ll receive an email invitation and secure a spot in line.
This “by invite only” system is primarily an anti-scalping measure. It may seem a bit inconvenient, but it beats getting up early to beat other shoppers. Plus, it’s easy to request an invitation to these exclusive offers. You just have to click a couple of buttons.
Here are some of the best invite-only Prime Day deals:
If you’re a Prime member, you’ll see a “Request an Invite” button on the right hand side of these product listings. Click the button before July 11 to apply. Amazon will send you an email on July 11 or 12 with a link to purchase the invite-only offer. (You will also receive an email if your request is denied.)
Clearly, Amazon Fire TV is a great invite-only deal. It’s hard to find a TV for $100, let alone a 43-inch model. But I also want to highlight that Acer Swift X laptop. In our review of the Acer Swift X, our biggest complaint was the $1100 price, which was cut in half on Prime Day.
Please note that these invite-only offers require a Prime subscription or trial membership. Amazon is pretty generous with their free trials – if you don’t see a 30-day trial offer on the Amazon Prime page, try ordering an item, as a trial offer may appear during checkout.
Amazon Prime Day officially begins on July 11 and ends on the night of July 12. If you haven’t already, now is the time to start creating a wish list of products you might want to buy. That way you can quickly check if they’re on sale during Prime Day.
