Amazon Prime Day 2020 for Crafters

Amazon Prime Day 2020 is Tuesday, October 13, 2020 starting at 12 A.M. Pacific time, and continuing through the next day. Prime Day is a great event for getting the best prices available all year.  If you haven’t heard about Prime Day before, it’s a once-a-year HUGE sale at Amazon — about 100,000 items get put on sale. It’s bigger than Black Friday, but it is just for Amazon. I’m a Prime member (and you have to be to get these deals) and I’ve been shopping Prime Day for a while now. But I recently learned that it is possible to find out in advance what things are going to go on sale. I looked and I found some really interesting DIY & CRAFT deals. I’ll be adding to my shopping list for myself and my family — and I thought you might like to know about these deals, too. But be warned — it’s addicting.

While your other family members are finding lots of important tools and gadgets, this is a great time to anticipate major crafting needs for the coming year. I have posted links to crafting tools that I use the most.

This post contains some affiliate links for your convenience (which means if you make a purchase after clicking a link I will earn a small commission but it won’t cost you a penny more)!  

What to Expect, How to shop,  and Get Ready

  • Check out the amazon.com/primeday page every day to stay up to date on Amazon’s best deals and offers of the year.
  • Don’t forget to sign up for Prime, as Prime Day deals are exclusively available to members!
  • You can try it for FREE for 30 days! amazon.com/tryprimefree 
  • Download and install the Amazon App. In the top left app menu, tap “Today’s Deals”, then the “UPCOMING” tab. Find a deal that you want and tap “Watch this deal” to get notified when it starts.
  • Make a Wish List and watch for email notifications when items go up for sale. You can use my list as a starting point. Wouldn’t this make a great crafter’s Christmas in July shopping list?

    Prime day has always made me completely NUTTY. I'll hear of a fantastic deal on something I want but then can't find it anywhere on their site. Is there an easier way to watch these upcoming deals than to simply scroll through page after page after page of deals? Sure would appreciate some help with finding these deals you list so I can watch for them on Prime Day. Thanks.

      I have provided direct links to the items in my list. If you click on the brown text, a link will appear. Click on the link, and it should take you directly to the item at Amazon. Julie

    I spent an hour and a half on chat/phone with Amazon support this morning and finally figured out how to find the deals so I could watch them. Once Prime Day starts (they couldn't give me a time, but sometime tomorrow morning) all the deals will go live so we can use the links you provided above. When we go to the product page we should see a blue button for Prime Day Deal and somehow that will allow us to put it on our watch list and get notified when the deal goes live. We'll see if that works....

This resource library is open to everyone for free. All you need is the password to get in, which you can get by filling out the form below. If you already have your password, enter the resource library here. Forgot your password? I put the password at the bottom of nearly all of my emails. But if you can’t find one of my emails to you, you can either fill out the form above again or email me at hello@cuttercrafter.com Password Tip: I recommend you copy and paste the password in to avoid any accidental mistakes. If you ever forget your password, please email hello@cuttercrafter.com Not working? If you enter the password and the same page refreshes, without any contents, that means you put in the wrong password. Double-check your email, copy the password, and paste it in to the link above. Still not working? I promise the password works—I haven’t changed it since I opened the library.   Try the copy/paste method again and make sure the URL you are going to has https at the start of it (that’s a secure page and it makes a difference). If that still isn’t working, try a different web browser.
