Looking to find the best deals on survival gear and supplies? You have come to the right place!

This page tracks the best ongoing promos and sales to take advantage of. It also covers specific events like Amazon Prime Day, Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Green Monday, Super Saturday, Free Shipping Day and more, specifically with the prepper and outdoor survivalist in mind.

The following sections break down the specific deals to watch in a variety of formats. BackdoorSurvival will be tracking and curating the best deals, so you don’t have to waste your time.

How to Shop Amazon Prime Day Prepper Deals

The best way to take advantage of the sales rush around Amazon Prime Day is the following:

  1. Make a list of what you want IF it goes on sale
  2. Stick to your list!
  3. Watch for reputable brands only. There are a lot of cheap knock offs coming out of China. If you don’t recognize the brand name, it’s probably not as good of a deal as you think.
  4. Historical price vs “discount price”; unfortunately many companies either a) overprice their products and then discount or b) are always discounted. Make sure you find trusted deal watching sources (like this page) to really ensure you are getting a good deal relative to typical pricing.

Since here at BDS we are always monitoring prices and deals in the survival and prepping space, we will only post GOOD deals above.

When is Amazon Prime Day 2018?

Amazon Prime Day is July 17! We will update this section with deals as they are announced.

What is a Lightning Deal?

In case you missed it, Amazon features “lightning deals” on Prime Day and other sales events (Black Friday and Cyber Week included). These Deals are generally quite limited in duration and only while supplies last. Last year, some deals sold out within minutes and never came back. It’s important to recognize these time sensitive deals vs the all day deals featured during Prime Day.

Bookmark this page to stay on top of the deals, especially the lightning deals.

  1. Are there supposed to be active links on all the “Best Prime Day Deal” categories? If so, there aren’t any links.

    • These are a placeholder for the details. It’s VERY time sensitive, so we won’t find out which deals are live until just before the event. This post will be updated with all the relevant details as soon as Amazon releases them.

  2. Gaye,
    I have followed you for a few years now and never commented. I just want to say thank you for posting the Prime Deals. I am hoping to score some great deals that you have already scoped out. Thank you for your blog.

  3. Just wanted to leave a quick comment about the Coast G-20 flashlight you mention, great little flashlight, I have 2 and always carry one at work for when I don’t need a big flashlight. I love everything I have bought from Coast, 2 knives, a multitool, and a half dozen flashlights.

  4. so glad u have posted these sales
