What is Prime Day and how can everyone participate? This is what we want to share with you because Amazon is promising that this is going to be BIGGER than Black Friday! We can’t tell you for sure as the day hasn’t arrived yet, but we are excited to find out what’s in store (no pun intended!).
First, what is prime day?
According to Amazon, their 20th birthday is tomorrow, July 15th, 2015. So to celebrate, they are having a bigger than black friday sale. Starting at midnight Pacific time July 15th, Amazon Prime Customers will be a privileged group to obtain new deals every few minutes, and every product category is eligible at some point throughout the day. They will be offering both Deals of the Day (prices lasting all day) and lightning deals (short, quick, few minute sales). Also, according to the press release, all Prime Members globally will have an opportunity to grab a deal or two. They have released some sneak peeks, this list is just a snippet of the deals, not a comprehensive list. They are also giving chances to win gift cards by utilizing the several prime music features.
Second, how can everyone participate?
You may have realized the obvious restriction to tomorrow’s big day…must be a Prime Member. Well, guess what?!? We’ve got you covered because you can get a free Prime Membership for 30 or more days depending on which you qualify for! You will want to get signed up for one of these free options today so that you are ready for tomorrow!
The first option is the free 30-day Prime Membership trial for anyone and any household. Receive all of the benefits of a regular prime membership for 30 days and enjoy the Prime Day tomorrow! Read more about the free 30-day trial and sign-up on the Amazon site HERE.
The second option is called the Amazon Mom’s program. We’ve been a part of this for several years now and this can be separate from the Amazon Prime with all of the prime benefits. Basically, it’s an upgraded Prime Membership to give you up to 20% off diapers and wipes and exclusive baby product and supply coupons. Also a 15% off baby registry discount. Please note: if you are a Prime Member already, you can also qualify to register for this for the diaper and baby products savings too. So many benefits if you are a mom, dad, grandma, grandpa, aunt, uncle, care giver, etc. then this might be the free trial you want! You can sign-up for this one and receive a free 30-day trial.
The third option is a REALLY good one! Free 6-month Prime Membership for students! If you are a student (you will need a .edu email address) then you can get a free 6-month prime membership and then if you decide to continue, it’s 50% off the full year after that! SWEET! Also, we recommend that you share with your fellow students to receive a $10 credit too – they are letting the poor, starving college students earn money on this one. 😉 Read more details, sign-up for the free membership and share away too!
Well now that you have your Prime Membership, utilize the sale tomorrow to nab some awesome deals on items you have had on your list to get. If there is something, big or small, that you have planned to purchase in the near future, you will want to get your list out and check the sales tomorrow and the lightning deals to see if you can get it for an incredible price.
Are you excited about this? We are sure Amazon won’t disappoint because they rarely do! 😉
