If you were wondering when Amazon Prime Day 2023 is, today's the day (and tomorrow) and the deals are overflowing. A recent poll of over 40,000 North American shoppers found that residents of one state in particular, New York, are the most eager to shop Amazon's irresistible collection of sales.
"Out of around 40,000 polled, over 9,000 were based in New York State and marked themselves as 'very eager' to shop this summer's Amazon Prime Day event," shares NYC-based Maria Colari, one of the survey's organizers and retail engagement expert. "And certain categories stood out more than others. Deals on clothes and accessories, Amazon Prime Day baby deals, cleaning and beauty products, in particular, have attracted the most attention."

The top Prime Day 2023 deals to look out for

- Mattresses of all kinds and sizes start well below $100—we found foldable mattress options, the best kids' mattress and best toddler mattress picks for up to 80% off retail
Why are New Yorkers looking forward to Prime Day the most?
"We found that those in the NYC metro area like the one-and-two-day shipping availability of Prime items, and those across Upstate like home delivery rather than having to commit time to in-person shopping," Maria shares. "Plus, New York seems more adapted to online shopping than other states."
Tips for getting the best Prime Day deals
- Shop early and fast—the best deals are offered in limited quantities. Once they sell out, they're gone.
- Make sure you're choosing items that are listed with "Prime" so shipping is ultra fast and free.
- Look for additional clippable coupons.
- Skip deals with discounts under 20%—they're just not worth it.
- Look for seldom-seen discounts on top-rated bestsellers like the Bissell Little Green Machine.
