Lightning Deals

A Lightning Deal is a promotion in which a limited number of discounts are offered on an item for a short period.

Lightning Deals can be found throughout Amazon, and are available on Today's Deals or Prime Day* page. Those deals are available, one per customer, until the promotion period for the deal ends or all deals are claimed.

*On Prime Day, all Deals are exclusive to Prime Members.

Lightning Deals are time-sensitive, so complete your order as soon as possible.

When a Lightning Deal is available, here's what you'll see:

  • The item featured in the deal
  • Any available variations of the item (for example, different size or color)
  • The promotional discount amount and final price (not including tax)
  • A status bar showing the percentage of deals already claimed
  • A timer showing how long you have to add the item to your Cart and claim the promotional discount
  • An Add to Cart button, if there are available promotional discounts

Note: When other customers hold all the promotional discounts for a Lightning Deal, you'll see a Join waitlist button and the status bar shows that 100% of the promotional discounts are held in other customer carts or have been used to purchase the deal.
