Is Christmas in July heading our way? Recently, Amazon announced that they would start shipping more items for free. Specifically, customers are to get no-cost shipping when they order small items weighing less than 8 ounces and priced less than $10; which I thought sort of devalued Prime membership which usually costs $99/year. I think that the news of a Prime Day is an effort to make Prime more valuable and keep people opting for Prime membership. Now let’s hope it lives up to the promise that it is to be a day that offers “more deals than Black Friday.” I personally have Prime and value the benefits. I was definitely hoping for more benefits now that the free shipping is more accessible, so I’m really excited about Prime Day!
More Deals Than Black Friday?
Prime Day is a one-day shopping event on July 15, 2015, with more deals than Black Friday. Prime members can shop exclusive deals from electronics, toys, video games, movies, clothing, patio, lawn and garden, sports and outdoor items and more.
What is it?
Prime Day is a global shopping event, offering more deals than Black Friday, exclusively for Prime members. On Wednesday, July 15 new and existing members will be able to shop thousands of Lightning Deals, Deals of the Day, and will receive unlimited Free Two-Day Shipping. Members will find deals starting at midnight PDT, with new deals starting throughout the day, as often as every ten minutes. Not a Prime member? Try Prime today and get immediate access to deals on July 15.
Prime members can find deals on products across categories including electronics, toys, video games, movies, clothing, patio, lawn and garden, sports and outdoor items and more. Members will enjoy deals on items perfect for summer adventures, their to-do list, family road trips, back to school supplies, and everyday essentials. Prime members can shop on any device, including smartphones and tablets and enjoy deals anytime, and anywhere.
In addition to the deals, there are a couple contests you can enter:
Mark your calendar for Prime Day and be sure to check it out. If you don’t have Prime, you can sign up for a free 30 day trial (if you haven’t before) and have access to Prime Day. So, I think that now might be the time to Try Prime if you haven’t before. Can’t wait!
