Amazon Prime Day begins July 12 and continues until the 13th. Below are the EARLY deals we found for you!
It’s a great time to buy things you’ve had your eye on for yourself and to pick up some of the basics or extras for your college student’s dorm or apt. We will add to this list over the next few days, so come back often to check on other great things we’ve found.
Prices and availability are subject to change.

There are many other perks with the Prime Student account, such as SIX months of FREE LinkedIn Premium, FREE food delivery at GrubHub, discounts on travel and entertainment and deals specifically for college students.
Other retailers are having their own Prime-type deal days, and we will also update what’s happening with them.
