Yes, it is that time of year again. Amazon Prime day is like Black Friday in July and it THE day to take advantage of phenomenal sales at everyone’s favorite online retailer…Amazon.

What is Amazon Prime Day?

Prime Day is a set amount of time, when Amazon offers tons of amazing deals all day long from every department. There are Lightening deals, daily deals, and general discounts on so many items and you need to watch for the items that interest you.

Prime Day lasts 36 hours, so there is a lot of time to watch for deals.

Monday July 16th is the day of days! Add stuff to your cart and watch for savings on those items!

What do you need to do to be ready to take advantage of this awesome sale day?

  1. Become a Prime Member

Prime Day is ONLY for Prime members! Click the banner below to get started, and note that it opens in the same tab.

Try Prime free for 30 days and grab the Prime Day specials. No Prime = no Prime day deals 🙁

Prime is a yearly membership (price varies depending on what country you are in) for special deals, free two-day shipping with unlimited deliveries and no minimum order size.

Prime membership also includes Prime Video, which you can watch on computer, Prime Video app or download to device; Prime Music streaming, Twitch Prime, free unlimited photo storage, and early access to lightning deals. Also free books and magazines.

If you are a member of Amazon Family, you will also get 20% off on diapers with your Prime.

  1. Download the free Amazon App

Use the app to watch for the deals that most interest you. The app is available in the Google Play store or the App Store.

Use the “watch” button on your app and get notified so that you do not miss a deal!

You can also install the Amazon Assistant for desktop notification of deals

Final Thoughts

Prime Day is the day to grab the deals. If you are interested in any of the books that I recommend in my Books to Read to Get Rich post, grab them on Prime Day.

  1. I hadn’t heard of prime day before. I am an amazon affiliate and they have been marketing it to me, but I didn’t bother to learn about it. So grateful for this post. Although, I try not to buy stuff unless I need it. I’ll still check out the sales on Monday.

    1. Hello Melinda and thank you for visiting us today!

      Same for me! I just thought it was a subscription service for Amazon. I had no idea it was such a big thing or that they dedicated a day and a half to special sales around it.

  2. Amazing post Irma! I had no idea about Prime membership of Amazon, neither of the Prime Day event. I will definitely have a look and see if I can get some deal out of it.
    Thank you for such a great and detailed information.

  3. Aww, I have not known there is a so-called prime day for the prime members!

    I used to be a prime member before but it has expired now. You mentioned that you can get the free prime membership for 30 days then we can grab the Prime Day deals. Do you know if this is applicable to my case (as I have purchased it before)?

    Also, is it like everything on Amazon will be discounted or the deals are only on certain categories?

    1. Hello Crystal Lim and thank you for visiting us today!

      I am not sure about the free 30 days. I think it depends on when you last had Prime.

      Not everything will be discounted but most of it will. And there are special deals that are just for Prime members; items that are not available for regular Amazon shoppers.

  5. Hi Irma,

    This is really good news to me.
    I thought I knew Amazon well, but now I know I have a lot to learn about the deals.

    Prime day is something I need to look out for from now on.

    Thanks a lot!

    1. Hello Khalfish and thank you for visiting us today!

      Yes, I have been learning about this myself. I did not know, prior to reading some other posts about Prime day, that it was even a thing. I am grabbing my free 30 days of Prime for that free 2-day shipping.
