What the Heck is Prime Day + Some Amazing Deals

It’s a big week for sales.  The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (Early Access) begins this Thursday, 7/13 AND today is Amazon Prime Day.  I mentioned it to my husband the other day and he said, “What the heck is Prime Day?” (hence, the name of this post), so I thought I’d give you all the scoop.  Prime Day is Amazon’s largest sale event with more than 100,000 deals worldwide — and yes, it’s bigger than Black Friday.  It’s a one day event, exclusive to Prime members through TODAY only.  I got a sneak peek at the good stuff on sale over the last few weeks and woke up extra early to scour through the sale pages (and weed out all the crazy things currently at a discount)!


If you’re currently a Prime member, you have access to the sale — this includes all memberships (trial, student, household, and fresh members).  You can just start shopping — it’s as easy as that!  There are Lightening Deals throughout the day — new deals will be posted every 5 minutes until 3am EST July 12th.  Oh, and if you use Alexa, you can ask for deals (and if not, you should add an Amazon Echo to your wishlist, there are some crazy deals there, too).   If you’re not a Prime member, it’s a great time to take advantage of their 30-day trial membership!


There are deals throughout every department today only, I’m rounding up what I think is worth jumping on in each category!


Bose SoundLink Mini Bluetooth Speaker – $70 off the regular price!  I love having our little Bose for travel and we end up bringing ours all over the place, plus, the sound quality is amazing!

Mophie Power Station – I swear by these for traveling and just as a general backup!  I love this rose gold version of the one I have!

Waterproof iPhone Case – I’m currently on the hunt for one of these for some upcoming travel, so this one just MIGHT make the cut during the sale today!


Hyaluronic Acid – All the rage at the moment!  I started incorporating this into my beauty routine recently and have really noticed a difference in my skin’s hydration and overall texture.  This is a steal of a deal!

Wet Brush – A two pack!  I love my Wet Brush and have been using the brand for years.  Grab this bundle and keep one as a backup (or give one to a friend)!

Curling Wand – This one is over 40% off!


Steve Madden – For me, this is where the sale shines.  So many amazing Steve Madden shoes are included in the sale, including these strappy sandals with the thick heel that I wear all the time here on Oh So Glam!  I also loved the faux fur version of this slide loafer that would be adorable this fall!

Ray Ban – these round sunglasses that I wear all the time are under $100 ($50 off)!

Luggage – Such a good deal for this set of spinner luggage!

Levis Denim Shorts – My favorite shorts are part of the sale!

There will be deals launching ALL DAY LONG so make sure to keep your eyes peeled — if you like something, don’t wait!  The deals are known to sell out FAST!  You can follow along with my Facebook page, as I will be updating throughout the day!

Happy shopping!
