Promotional Offers and Coupons
Accelerate your growth with Amazon Today's Deals
Customers are always actively looking for the best offers on Amazon, especially during the end-of-year period and during Amazon events. Creating Today's Deals (Promotional Offers and Coupons) on Amazon can help you increase your sales and brand visibility, and generate more customer reviews.
Why create a Deal?
Promotional offers and coupons can be an effective tool for promoting your brand and making your products more easily visible to customers. Promote your products by gaining visibility on the Lightning Deals page.
Today's Deals can be a good tool to help you increase your sales by offering discounts on products. Promote your bestsellers or reduce your excess inventory by freeing up storage space in our warehouses.
Schedule Today's Deals during event periods, such as Prime Day or Black Friday, and benefit from Amazon's online and offline marketing efforts, which aim to maximise traffic to the event page.
This Sunday's Promotional Offer went very well. We expected an increase, but not to this extent. Going forward, we will consider promotions in our inventory planning.Raphael DenkerManaging Director of Maiden & Friends

How do you make the most out of your deals?
Use ASIN recommendations
The recommendations are updated weekly. If you see an eligible product, take the necessary actions as soon as possible.
Use high-quality images for your offers
Make sure the image does not include any logos or text that are not part of the product itself. If a deal does not meet the style criteria with regard to the image or if the deal does not represent the products included in the deal, the offer may be cancelled.
Add Enhanced Brand Content
Brand owners can add Enhanced Brand Content to their listings to improve the product description and help customers make a purchase decision.
Combine your Promotional Offer with a Sponsored Products campaign
Sponsored Products is a self-service advertising programme that allows you to quickly create cost-per-click ads to increase your visibility.
Monitor the status of your Offer
Use the Promotional Deal Manager to check the status of your Offer regularly before its launch date, and avoid making changes to the ASINs included in the promotion during this time.
