Amazon Prime Day

Amazon has announced the details for this year’s ‘Prime Day’ sale which will take place on Tuesday, July 12. What is Prime Day? It’s a one-day only global shopping event exclusively for Amazon’s Prime members. It’s a 24-hour Black Friday-like sales event where prices are slashed on hundreds of thousands of products.

Members in the U.S. can shop starting at midnight PT, with new deals starting as often as every five minutes throughout the day. If you are not currently a Prime member you can give Prime a trial run.

A Wide-Ranging Service

I’m a big fan of Amazon Prime and have been a member pretty much since the inception of the program. There are a number of reasons why the $99 annual fee for Amazon Prime is worth it for me. In addition to my two favorite benefits, Prime Video – which gives members access to thousands of movies and television shows at no additional cost – and Prime Shipping – which includes free two-day shipping on a significant number of items – members get access to other services such as the Kindle Owner’s Lending Library, Prime Music, Shopping with Alexa, and early access to deals. In fact, I was among the first group to request and receive an Amazon Echo, way back in November 2014, significantly before its wider release.

I do a lot of shopping online, own multiple Kindles within the family, love the convenience and utility of the Echo (and Dot), and stream lots of content. If that sounds somewhat similar to your own situation, you should definitely consider becoming a Prime Member and check out some of the deals on Prime Day.
