Amazon is launching a huge sale starting March 20th called the Big Spring Sale. Many of the deals will rival prices we see for Black Friday on household, beauty and more. We also anticipate seeing big discounts on patio, outdoor, and garden. Our deal experts know a thing or two about making the most of Amazon sales (including the Prime Days in July and October). We spoke with several of them about their favorite tips for shopping the Amazon Big Spring Sale 2024 to get the best deals, sort through the clutter, and avoid overspending.

Note that at the time of posting this article, the availability of Big Spring Sale deals was accurate, but due to high shopping behaviors during this event, this can and will change often. We’ll do our best to keep you up to date.


Pro Tip 1: Shop without a Prime Membership

We all know that Prime membership perks can add real value to your online shopping experience. You get two-day shipping, Prime Video, access to their Try Before You Buy program, and more. 

What’s interesting about the Big Spring Sale 2024 is that Amazon is opening up its big discounts to everyone, not just Prime members! This means you don’t need to pay for a subscription to access the huge savings in this sale. If you want to still take advantage of Prime benefits during this sale, sign up for a free 30-Day Prime Trial for free.

Pro Tip 2: Review Related Products

If the search feature is still offering up too many products, our lead Amazon editor Marisa Lang suggests utilizing the Related Products feature.

“I scan the "products related to the item" section as a starting point for finding the best price. I recently saw a pack of two basketball hoops for less than the price of the one single hoop I was looking at, just by scanning the Related Products section!”

Pro Tip 3: Make a List (and Stick To It!)

Our content editor Tom Kray recommends creating a list and not straying from it.

“Before any Amazon event, make a list of things you'd like to find deals on, whether that's specific products or just general categories. This will help direct your search when literally thousands of different products go on sale. By sticking to a list, you’re less likely to shop for things you don’t need and more likely to shop smart for the best deal possible.”

Tom also points out that sales change and deals are added all the time throughout Prime Big Deal Days. Once you’ve made your list, you’ll want to check often.

Pro Tip 4: Shop Around

A great tip from our Deputy Editor Julie Verslues is to shop all the spring sales at competing retailers to get the best prices on everything. We usually see huge sales from other retailers that align with Amazon’s events. We expect to see best-of-the-season deals at your favorite stores starting around March 20th. 

Bonus Tip: Let Technology Do the Work

If you’d rather not have your face glued to a screen all day, we can help! Set up a deal alert for any items you’re shopping for during the Big Spring Sale. You’ll receive an email from us if anyone on our team posts a great deal for that item.

You can also download our free app and take all the best Amazon deals with you wherever you go. Check the app throughout the day, and rest easy knowing we already sorted through all the junk for you.

Finally, the number of deals included in the Amazon Big Spring Sale can be overwhelming. Utilize Amazon’s site features like the Deals checkbox in search results, Lightning Deals landing pages, and the ‘Watch Deal’ feature to track upcoming discounts.
