Amazon Prime Day is an all-day, online-deals event that debuted on July 15, 2015, to celebrate Amazon’s 20th birthday. Amazon described it as; “a global shopping event, offering more deals than Black Friday, exclusively for Prime members”.
Amazon Prime Day 2016 generated about $525 million in sales for Amazon. A 26 % increase from Amazon’s projected sales of $415 million in 2015. According to Amazon, the company sold more than 90,000 TVs, over 1 million pairs of shoes.
This year’s Prime Day runs for 30 hours with start July 10, 9PM Eastern Time, and straight through July 11.
Prime Day Is for Prime Members
In order to take advantage of the Amazon Prime Day offers, you must be a Prime member/subscriber. If you are not already a member, no need to worry. It is easy to get started and sign up for a Free Trial.
The trial membership qualifies you for Prime Day savings, so you will be good to go and enjoy all amazingly good deals.
Also, if you are a US college student, you can get a six-month Amazon Prime trial for free. After the six months you only pay half price, $49, compared to regular subscribers that pay $99 annually.
What Comes With the Amazon
Amazon Prime offers unlimited two-day shipping on Prime offers. You should know that all sellers on Amazon are not Prime sellers, and cannot offer free two-day shipping. If you want to make sure you are only searching for Prime deals, you can check the Prime box to the left, see image.
Amazon Prime also offers movie and unlimited music streaming, and various other perks. The cost is $99 per year, or £79 in the UK.
What Does Join Waitlist Mean?
You may see a Join Waitlist button during Prime Day and it basically means that you will be put in a queue to purchase an item if it becomes available.
Why This Queue?
Sometimes other customers will add an item to their cart, but later decide not to buy it (or fail to complete the purchase within 15 minutes) — at which point it goes to the next person in line. That could be you, so do not be shy about joining the waitlist if it is a product you really want.
How to Ensure A Good Deal Is
A Great Deal
We all know that the retail market is a bit “fishy”. It is hard to know whether the seller just raised the original retail price, making it seem like a better discount, or if it really is a good deal.
To figure this out you can use these websites:
- CamelCamelCamel: A site that tracks the price history of many Amazon products. This can help you spot fake deals from true price drops.
- Fakespot.com: This site can help determine whether the Amazon user reviews for a given product are legit or fake.
