Update on Amazon Lightning Deals Coverage

It looks like this is the new way Amazon is doing teasers of lightning deals. Previously they gave us a 20+ hour heads-up in the Gold Box. Now the maximum future visibility we all have is four hours. More specifically four hours from the top of the hour, so it’s somewhere between 3-4 hours depending on when you check.

This means I can no longer do the nightly schedule posts because I can only “see” 3-4 hours ahead instead of 20+ hours.

Instead, I started using a brand new Gold Box tag (Bookmark This if you like; there’s also a link to it in the Blog Sidebar). I am using this blog tag to mark all the posts that talk about Amazon Lightning Deals, so you when you string them all together, you see the latest lightning deal posts.

New Development? No Upcoming Lightning Deals at Amazon

I don’t know if this is a temporarily technical issue or a planned system/software upgrade, or Amazon is planning to change the way they do Lightning Deals for the holiday shopping season?

If it’s the last one, it would be a major change, with no one having a heads up of what’s coming. Things would just go live when they did. More of a lightning deals Wild West like many years ago before they instituted the “Upcoming” schedule.

For a couple of hours before posting this, there were no Upcoming Lightning deals in the Amazon Gold Box. The mystery will likely be resolved in the next few hours, one way or another…

And this is where our good old Gold Box table below comes in handy, you can use this if you want to quickly check whether any Upcoming deals are loaded. You can also use it to check the currently running deals (In-Progress Now).
