Everything You Need to Know for Amazon Prime Day
When it comes to getting a good deal, Amazon delivers all year round. But that doesn’t mean we’re not excited to score some mega discounts during this year’s Amazon Prime Day—a major bonus for Prime members. (Not you? Sign up for a free trial here.) Kicking off on a yet-to-be disclosed day in July, the retail giant will be slashing prices on everything from electronics and kitchen gadgets to mattresses and nursery items.
Keep in mind, these deals are only valid for only 36 hours (or less), so time is of the essence. While we may not know the actual savings just yet, we have some ideas on what will be majorly discounted next month. But first, let’s outline the logistics:
What is Amazon Prime Day?
Amazon Prime Day is pretty much Christmas in July. It’s an unofficial holiday that was created to celebrate the company’s birthday and it’s exclusive to Amazon Prime members. Seriously, if you aren’t already signed up, you should do so ASAP. New Prime customers get a free 30-day trial, so there’s nothing to lose.
When is Amazon Prime Day?
Generally speaking, Amazon Prime Day takes place in mid-July. This year, we’re estimating that Prime Day will fall on Monday, July 15. In previous years, the sale lasted for up to 30 hours, but this year it’s expected to run for a total of 36 hours, with new deals launching every five to 10 minutes. Phew!
Do we know what will be on sale?
Not yet! But based on previous year’s sales, we can expect there will be price cuts on electronics, kitchen gadgets, beauty products, nursery items and more. If you see something you like, you should add it to cart immediately because once it’s gone, it’s not coming back.
