Amazon Prime Day is July 12, 2016. This is the one day Amazon offers special pricing and deals to its Prime membership.
This is only Amazon’s 2nd Prime Day — a day that features special deals across all departments specifically and only for the Amazon Prime members.
Last year Amazon offered hundreds of special discounts. Fire TV Stick that normally sells for $39 was lowered to $24. Other notable deals included:
- Kindle: $30 off
- Amazon Echo was available to the first 150 buyers for just $149.
- Kindle Fire HD 7: $79 (currently $139)
- Brand-not-specified 32-inch LED TV: $75
- Brand-not-specified 40-inch LED TV: $115
- Brand-name (but not specified) 32-inch smart TV: under $200
- Unspecified Chromebook: $199 (not an uncommon price unless it’s a high-end model)
There were hundreds of name brand electronics, jewelry, clothing, kitchenware, books, and game consoles available at steep discounts.
What is a Prime Membership?
As an Amazon Prime member you could be enjoying discounts on some items all year long and free shipping every day–a big savings if you shop online regularly from Amazon’s website. Amazon Prime includes free streaming of the Prime video library of first release movies, television shows and Amazon original television, and access to thousands of on demand movies and television shows. A Prime membership includes a free Amazon Cloud account for backup and a Amazon Prime Music account.
An Amazon Prime membership costs just $99.00 a year. Immediately you benefit when you buy anything from the Amazon website with unlimited FREE 2-day shipping. You also immediately gain access to Amazon’s Prime Video library. The leading competitor (Netflix) costs $95.88 annually and doesn’t include any of these additional benefits. Amazon Prime members get access to Amazon Prime Music — a huge library of artists from all types of music that can played through the Prime Music App on your phone or tablet.
You can join Amazon Prime for 30-days risk free trial offer for FREE.
How to join Amazon Prime.
Last year Amazon Prime Day was July 15th. I almost missed it. As a Prime member and an Amazon affiliate, I totally overlooked this day until it arrived and I realized there were better deals here than on Black Friday. Amazon controls the market on this day. It’s only offered to a select group of members and they can limit the number of each item available (so shop early). The deals were excellent! But some of the most desirable offers have time limits (only available for a couple of hours) like the Gold Box Deals Amazon features daily. Others have a limited quantity available. It’s good to check out the offerings early.
