 Next week starts one of my favorite times of the year! Much like a Black Friday in July, major retailers will start their respective online sale days/week offering some big discounts for their members. I am a bit more excited this year cause after our recent move from Ohio to Arizona, there are a lot of things we need right now and this sale week comes at the perfect time.

I’ll go over some  of the deal previews and how to score memberships at cheaper prices but first, here’s the dates to keep note of:
Amazon Prime Days – July 11th and 12th
Target Circle Week – July 9th-15th
Walmart+ Week – July 10th to 13th

Secondly, if you want to follow along with deals during the week I will be posting them as they come up on several different channels.
1) Instagram and Facebook Stories – check stories on either of these platforms for direct links to deals as they come up. Follow at @total_savings on Instagram and Total Savings on Facebook.

2) Telegram channel – Telegram is the easiest and quickest way to get notified of deals as they come up and convenient for run deals that might go fast. You can set notifications to pop up on your phone or desktop. You can also mute sounds on the channel to avoid the notification sound from continually going off but still see the message pop up with deals. Join my channel by following this link.

3) Facebook group – I recently started a Facebook group specifically for online deals called ‘Total Savings Deals, Coupon Codes, and Freebies

Alrighty, lets get into it!


Amazon Prime Days

Amazon’s Prime Day, the eagerly anticipated annual shopping extravaganza, is back and better than ever! The event will run on both July 11th and July 12th but keep an eye out for some early Prime deals to start saving now.

In order to take advantage of Prime member only deals you’ll need to have an Amazon Prime Membership or be on a household account with a Prime member.

If you’re sad because you don’t have a Prime membership right now and getting pre-FOMO, there are some ways to get it free or cheap so you can join in on the deals next week.

Amazon Prime Day Deal Preview

One thing different this year is “invite only” deals on some of the bigger ticket items. Ahead of Prime day you can request an invite for these deals and on July 11 or 12 emails will be sent out with invitations to select users to buy the products at the deal price. You can request these deals by going to the product page of each item and clicking on “Request an Invite”.

Here are a few of the deals to request an invite on:

In previous years, I’ve found that some of the best deals are the ones that aren’t advertised but the ones that pop up during Prime days with stacking offers or some of their lightning deals. Make sure to follow along on the Instagram/Facebook stories, Telegram, or Facebook group for deals the day of.

Target Circle Week

Target circle week is a week long event for members of the Target circle program. Many of the discounts will reflect after clipping Target circle offers and coupons in your account.

If you’re new to Target couponing check out the FAQ for more details on how Target circle offers work.
