Claim a Lightning Deal

You can find and claim current Lightning Deals on the Today's Deals page or while shopping.

Important: If you're taken to the How would you like to pay? page, ensure that the Use your gift card or promotional balance checkbox is selected to enable the Lightning Deal price.

To claim a Lightning Deal:

  1. If you're claiming the deal from the Today's Deals page, select Add to Cart or Choose Options on the Lightning Deal to claim one of the available promotional discounts. If you're claiming the deal from the product detail page, select the Lightning Deal option and then select Add to Cart.

    Note: You can claim the deal before the promotion period ends and before the deal is sold out.

  2. The item is available in your Shopping Cart at the Lightning Deal price for 15 minutes. You must complete your order before the offer ends and within 15 minutes, or the promotional discount will expire and your cart displays the everyday Amazon price for that item.
  3. Select Proceed to Checkout. Look for the promotional discount in the Lightning Deal section of the Order Summary before you place your order.


  • You must complete your order using the same account used when claiming the Lightning Deal.
  • Lightning Deal promotional discounts aren't transferrable to other Amazon accounts.
  • For some popular Lightning Deals, you may see a "Checking deal status" message after you select Add to Cart. For all Lightning Deals, we verify eligibility on a first-come, first-served basis, before applying the promotional discount to an account. Don't reload or refresh the page in your browser while this status appears.
  • After all the promotional discounts are claimed, the Lightning Deal is marked "All Discounts Claimed" or "Sold Out". You can usually go to the item's product page and purchase it at the current Amazon price, but the purchase is no longer eligible for the Lightning Deal promotional discount.
  • If you cancel your order for a Lightning Deal, you can't place an order for that same Lightning Deal again, even if it's still running.
