If you are not already aware, Amazon Prime Day is almost here, and it promises to be the biggest ever.
It is not technically here yet, as the actual dates are 15th and 16th July 2019, but plenty of deals are already appearing before the main event.
What Is Amazon Prime Day?
Amazon Prime Day is a deal event created by Amazon where you will find plenty of incredible deals and products with huge discounts. It used to be a 24-hour event but has been extended to 48 hours this year. Alongside the Black Friday sale, this is probably the next biggest deal event by Amazon.
The official Prime Day dates are Monday, July 15 through Tuesday, July 16, with two full days of savings.
Prime Day deals, with a few rare exceptions, are available only to Amazon Prime members. A membership costs $12.99 per month, or $120 if you go for the annual plan. There is a 30-day trial, so you can sign up now and enjoy the Prime Day deals without any cost upfront. If you want, you can cancel before your trial ends.
Some of the benefits of a Prime subscription include access to Prime Video, free two-day shipping, unlimited music streaming, unlimited photo storage, unlimited reading and free same-day delivery.
