We’ve been talking in the Sophisticated Widow’s Guide to Smart Home Gadgets posts about why you need smart home gadgets in your life to make your day-to-day tasks easier.

The posts outline the smart home gadgets I use, why I use them, and how they can help streamline your life, too.

I wanted to give you the heads up that you can get some of these smart gadgets on sale during Amazon Prime Day. For 48 hours only, from July 15-16, 2019 score some awesome deals and even scope out new product launches.

With Amazon Prime Day less than a week away, you might want to start planning your purchases and getting ready to take advantage of this ginormous sale.

Not Already an Amazon Prime Member?

If you don’t have a Prime membership, now’s the time to sign up for a free 30-day trial of Amazon Prime so you can take advantage of all of the Prime Day deals.

You can cancel your trial after the sale without any penalty. So, if you don’t want a permanent membership you can still take advantage of these deals.

However, you won’t qualify for the free trial if you’ve canceled a Prime membership in the past 12 months. In that case, just sign up for a 1-month Prime membership at $12.99/month and decide what to do with your membership after you’ve saved on your Prime Day purchases.

What is Amazon Prime Day?

Amazon Prime Day is a massive online sale where Amazon Prime members can snag amazing deals on everything from electronics to toys to clothes to household goods. Even food!

Hundreds of thousands of deals that are as good or even better than Black Friday are available for two days only. It’s Amazon’s way of saying “thank you” to its Prime members.

Early Prime Day Deals

Prime Day only lasts for 48 hours from July 15-16, 2019. However, Amazon also floats early Prime Day deals so you can actually purchase lots of items early.
