Are you a teacher looking for the best Amazon Prime Day deals and steals for your classroom? If so, you are in the right place! We are keeping an extra close eye on it all so you don’t miss out on anything! Before we go any further, here are some must-know tips!
Throughout the post, you’ll find Amazon Affiliate links, which means Amazon tosses a few nickels my way if you purchase something through that link, at no extra cost to you, which helps keep my website up and running so we can bring you quality content and freebies.
What is Amazon Prime Day?
Prime Day is a global shopping event where Prime members can shop hundreds of thousands of deals sitewide, with new deals starting as often as every five minutes. Amazon has officially announced that Prime Day 2018 will begin at 3 p.m. ET on Monday, July 16th and will run through Tuesday, July 17th.
How do I shop Prime Day deals?
All teacher and classroom deals will be found and posted right here on this post. We will continue to come back and update this post throughout the day to keep you up to date on everything! You do need to be an Amazon Prime member to shop these deals so if you aren’t already, you should do this today and receive a 30-day trial. Some perks to being an Amazon Prime member includes free two day shipping. You can also benefit from their free music and videos to use in your classroom!
