What did we do before Amazon? I love being able to order items and have them shipped directly to my house. Amazon has the widest range of items I’ve ever seen from books and movies to clothes. 

When is Amazon Prime Day?

Amazon has announced the dates for its wildly popular annual “Prime Day” event, which is actually spread over two days this year, falling on Tuesday, July 12, and Wednesday, July 13.

How to Shop on Amazon Prime Day

1. Become a Prime member. Sign up or start a 30-day free trial for instant access to everything. Without an account, you won’t be able to shop the sale.

2. Share your benefits. Invite a family member to enjoy Prime Day deals, live events, and more.

3. Ask Alexa “When is Prime Day?” With Alexa, you can learn more about Prime Day, shop deals, and more.

How does Prime Day work?

The first thing — and it’s the most important — is that the sale is only open to Amazon Prime members.

That does not mean you have to pay for the $99-a-year service (which can also be purchased on a month-to-month basis now). Eligible users can use a credit card to sign up for a 30-day FREE trial of the service which converts to a paid membership after that period but can be canceled before you have to pay.

Deals have already started showing up, but the big deals will drop during that two-day stretch, which is when Amazon Prime members will be able to save a boatload of cash on electronics, books, movies, music, and much more.

However, you don’t have to wait until Prime Day to start saving. Amazon says that starting on June 21, members will be able to save up to 55% on select Amazon devices, including Echo Show 5 (2nd Gen) and Echo Show 5 (2nd Gen) Kids, Kindle Paperwhite, Amazon Glow with Tangram Bits, Halo Band, Luna Controller, Fire 7 Tablet (2019 release), Echo Dot (4th Gen) with a Free Smart Bulb, Ring Alarm Security Kit 8-Piece (2nd Gen), Blink Video Doorbell, eero mesh WiFi routers, and more.

For streamers, you can already take advantage of some of these deals on Fire TV devices.

One of the biggest discounts already available is on the Amazon Fire TV Cube, which, at just $69.99, is over 40% off its $119.99 price. The device combines an Amazon Echo and Fire TV in a single device.

If you are an NFL fan, you will need to become a Prime Member to stream “adding Thursday Night Football” starting this fall, so now would be a good time to signup and get the perfect streaming setup.

If you want to get ahead of the action, you can earn a $10 credit to use on Prime Day if you complete the following Prime activities: Stream Prime Video, listen to Prime Music, borrow a Prime Reading or Kindle Unlimited book or add one to their library, and make a Prime-shipping eligible purchase. Click here to learn more about the deal.

Prime Day kicks off on July 12 at midnight PDT (3 a.m. EDT) and runs through June 13 for Prime members in the U.S. and around the world.

Prime Video Channels

Watch popular movies and TV, award-winning Amazon Originals, and live events – all included with a Prime membership.
