UPDATE: Jun. 26, 2024, 11:35 a.m. EDT We’ve updated this story with the latest information about Amazon’s invite-only deals for Prime Day 2024.

Last year, Amazon made the mega-sale that is Prime Day even bigger when they introduced their invite-only deals program, which allowed select shoppers a chance to grab extra-exclusive door busters.

They brought them back for their fall Prime sale event, and as of June 25, have confirmed that Prime Day 2024 will be featuring more invite-only deals.

So what do you need to know ahead of Amazon’s sale on July 16 and 17? Below, you’ll find all the essential info you need to shop invite-only deals.

What are invite-only Prime Day deals?

Pre-dating invite-only deals, Amazon Prime Day has typically included a handful of extra hot-ticket deals that appear unexpectedly and sell out quickly. Buying them, or at least trying to, could be a chaotic and frustrating experience.

The idea behind invite-only deals is that you don’t have to be glued to your computer screen during the sale in order to catch these deep discounts while they’re live. Instead, Prime members can request an invite to claim these deals. There’s still no guarantee you’ll get to actually add them to your cart, but it formalizes the process and takes the usual Prime Day buying frenzy down a notch.

What invite-only deals will be available during Prime Day 2024?

So far, Amazon hasn’t dropped the specific deals that’ll be on sale, but they have teased in a press release that invite-only deals for 2024 will include “up to 40% off Sony Wireless Headphones and up to 30% off Peloton products” as well as “40% off Invite-only deals for a Speedo Champion Signature Swim bundle, up to 60% off Invite-only deal for a Citizen Chronograph Watch and 58% off Invite-only deals on Foreo LUNA mini 3 set.”

For July’s Prime Day sale in 2023, Amazon offered 10 invite-only deals, including a $100 4K Omni TV, saving the lucky few who were chosen 75% on the TV. Fall’s Prime Big Deal Days sale brought back slightly less impressive offerings, with six total deals, including a Sony soundbar and Jabra earbuds. For both Prime sales, Amazon ended up adding deals at the last minute — for fall’s sale, that ended up including 60% off a 50-inch Omni TV and 60% off a 50-inch Hisense Fire TV.

When do invite-only deals become available?

By June 23 of last year, Amazon released their initial slate of invite-only deals. Though that may make it appear that we’re behind schedule, Amazon also announced the official dates of Prime Day 2023 by June 20, so if they keep up with about the same timeline this year, we may start to see invite-only deals become available within the next few days.

We’ll be keeping an eye out and updating this post as soon as they go live. Once they are, you can start immediately requesting invites.

Who can access invite-only Prime Day deals?

We know pretty much nothing about Amazon’s invite-only deal selection process, but we do know that you can only request access if you’re a member of its Prime subscription service (paid or trial). Signing up for a membership is easy, and can give you access to more Prime-exclusive deals throughout the duration of the sale.

How to shop invite-only Prime Day deals

Shoppers can request invitations to these deals via featured items’ product pages in the lead-up to the sale. To request any deals, here’s what to do:

  1. Navigate to any invite-only item, then hit “Request invite.”

  2. Amazon will automatically put in your request via the email associated with your account. If you’re selected to shop the deal, you’ll receive an email or mobile notification (if you have the Amazon app) with a unique link to shop the sale on July 16 or July 17. If you’re not selected, you’ll also be notified.

That’s it — it’s literally a two-step process.

Shoppers are eligible to put in one request per item, but you’re not limited on how many invite-only deals you can shop. For instance, if there are six available items, you can put in up to six requests. Once you put in a request, you’ll be able to see an “invite requested” notice on the product page.

When to shop invite-only deals for Prime Day 2024

As soon as the deals become available, you can start requesting invites to shop. Again, you’ll want to keep your eye on your email in the days leading up to the sale, where you’ll be notified for which item and when you can shop the sale.

We’ll be updating this post with invite-only deals once they go live.
