When is Prime Day 2023?

Amazon announced today, Prime Day will be a 48 hour event launching July 11-12, 2023!


Every year, e-commerce enthusiasts and bargain hunters eagerly anticipate a day filled with incredible deals, exclusive offers, and unparalleled savings. It's none other than Amazon Prime Day, a shopping extravaganza that has become a global phenomenon. This annual event, exclusively available to Amazon Prime members, offers a plethora of discounts across a wide range of products. In this blog post, we will dive into the essence of Prime Day, explore its history, discuss its significance for consumers and sellers, and reveal some tips for making the most out of this unparalleled shopping experience.

The Origins of Prime Day:

Prime Day made its debut in 2015 to celebrate Amazon's 20th anniversary. Originally intended as a one-day event, it quickly gained traction and evolved into a 48-hour shopping bonanza. Since then, it has been held annually, usually in July, offering Prime members a chance to access jaw-dropping deals and enjoy an online shopping experience.

Prime Day's Significance for Consumers:

For consumers, Prime Day is an opportunity to snag their favorite products at discounted prices. From tech gadgets and home appliances to fashion, beauty, and beyond, Prime Day offers an extensive range of categories and products. Shoppers can explore lightning deals, exclusive launches, and limited-time offers, all while enjoying the convenience of fast and reliable shipping through Amazon's Prime membership.

In 2022, Prime Day reached unprecedented heights, generating over $11.9 billion in revenue, with over 200 million items sold.

Prime Day's Impact on Sellers:

Prime Day isn't just a shopper's paradise; it's also a golden opportunity for sellers, brands, and entrepreneurs. Participating in Prime Day allows them to showcase their products to a massive and engaged customer base. The event boosts visibility, increases brand awareness, and drives sales volumes to new heights. Sellers often strategize and optimize their listings, plan promotions, and offer enticing deals to attract customers during this shopping extravaganza.

Tips for Maximizing Prime Day:

  • Plan Ahead: Start preparing well in advance. Analyze your inventory, identify bestselling products, and create a promotional strategy tailored to your target audience.

  • Optimize Listings: Enhance your product listings with high-quality images, compelling descriptions, and relevant keywords. All product pages and your brand store should look pristine. It's recommended to do an audit of your pages to ensure they're ready to meet new customers!

  • Pricing Strategies: Determine competitive pricing that aligns with your goals. Offer attractive discounts, bundle deals, or exclusive perks for Prime members to entice customers. We recommend sprinkling in Lead In (the week before Prime Day) and Lead Out (the week after Prime Day) deals. These deals can generate some incremental sales and help in favor of Amazon's algorithm. Regarding discount amounts, the floor should be 20% if margin allows.

  • Promote Your Deals: Leverage social media, email marketing, and other channels to promote your Prime Day deals. Engage with your audience, create buzz, and build excitement leading up to the event. From an Amazon Ads perspective, you can expect AMS CPCs to increase so should there be any wiggle room in your spend or TACoS goals should be adjusted sooner rather than later. For DSP, Prime Day is a treat as the increased rate of traffic will only fuel your audience pools - best to increase budget here should you continue to see favorable returns.

  • Inventory Management: Ensure you have sufficient inventory to meet the surge in demand. Leverage Amazon's FBA program for seamless fulfillment and shipping. Do not run out of stock, I repeat, do not run out of stock.

  • Customer Engagement: Provide exceptional customer service by promptly responding to inquiries and reviews. Deliver a positive shopping experience to build brand loyalty.

  • Post-Event Analysis: After Prime Day, analyze sales data, customer feedback, and performance metrics. Gain insights to optimize future strategies and capitalize on upcoming opportunities. A successful Prime Day will likely result in a favorable halo effect as well.


Amazon Prime Day has undoubtedly transformed the e-commerce landscape, offering a unique and exciting shopping experience for consumers and sellers alike. The event continues to grow in scale and influence, bringing joy and savings to millions of Prime members worldwide. As a consumer, mark your calendar and prepare to indulge in amazing deals. As a seller, embrace Prime Day as a chance to skyrocket your brand's visibility and drive sales. Whatever your role, Prime Day is an annual celebration of online shopping that you won't want to miss.

So, gear up, browse those enticing deals, and embark on a thrilling shopping journey during Amazon Prime Day!
