What is an Amazon Lightning Deal?
A Lightning Deal is a discount offered on a specific product on Amazon.com for a limited amount of time.

We do not yet know the exact hours of the sale, but once the promotion period starts, it will last up to 6 hours or until all the units have been sold. Set yourself a reminder to check the Spark Activity Tracker page on Amazon.com on Tuesday (February 18) throughout the day to catch the sale. We’ll also post an update to the SparkPeople Facebook page once the Lightning Deal is live!
How do I get this deal?
Once the sale is live, the 20% discount will be automatically reflected on Amazon.com. No promotion code required! Just place the Spark in your cart and complete the checkout process.
This is your chance to get an amazing deal on an amazing product! Here's what one Amazon buyer said about her Spark:
''The (Spark) is great because it tracks my steps and makes me want to reach a certain goal. It was easy to connect, it comes with a second battery, and the clip is really tight. I was a little hesitant because of the price, but I'm really pleased with the purchase, and doubly pleased with SparkPeople!''
So mark your calendar for February 18th to save 20% on your Spark and get the motivation you need to reach your goals!

In October, SparkPeople partnered with National Geographic Kids magazine to attempt to break a Guinness World Record for the most people doing jumping jacks in a 24-hour period. We needed more than 20,000 people to do jumping jacks to break the record.
We are excited to announce that we broke the record! More than 300,000 people– including many SparkPeople members – participated in Let’s Jump! events around the world between 3 p.m. on Oct. 11 and 3 p.m. on Oct. 12. The record now stands at 300,265 — far surpassing the previous record of 20,425. (Find out how many calories you can burn while doing jumping jacks!)
Here's what our partner, National Geographic Kids magazine, had to say about the event:
