What is Amazon Prime Day?
Amazon Prime Day is the retailer’s annual savings event designed specifically for Prime Members who will be able to receive exclusive discounts and deals on top-rated products.
Last year the site sold over 175 million items and the record is expected to be easily broken this year with many people taking to online shopping amongst the coronavirus pandemic.
Amazon Prime Day has already started and goes from 12.01 am on Tuesday the 13th and finishes at 11.59 pm on Wednesday the 14th of October. Usually, the sale is held during peak summer months but this year the sale was delayed due to the pandemic.
How does Amazon Prime Day work?
As the name suggests, to take part in all the shopper savvy deals you need to have an Amazon Primeaccount. The discounts not only include mega savings on popular items but will also involve some sweet deals on Amazon’s subscription services such as Audible Premium Plus and Amazon Music.
Don’t fret if you don’t have a Prime account as you can always get a free trial just for Amazon Prime Day! The site offers a free 30-day trial and if you want to continue your subscription from there all you’d need to pay is just £7.99 per month. That’s surely a bargain considering you would also have access to Prime Video and express shipping.
What are this year’s deals?
This year Amazon is promoting the support of small businesses and anyone who spent £10 or more on small businesses in the months leading to Amazon Prime Day will get a free £10 voucher to spend on the 13th and 14th.
