More Information About Amazon Prime Day
It is important to note that Amazon will continue to add to the list of deals over the 30-hour sale period. The company will also hold “Lightning Deals.” Lighting Deals will be offered for a specific period of time, ranging from minutes to hours, throughout the shopping event. Also, those shopping with Amazon’s virtual assistant, Alexa, will gain access to deals two hours earlier than other shoppers. Amazon Prime Now shoppers will also get additional perks for the Amazon Prime Day shopping event.
Also, if you would like to capitalize on these deals you have to be a prime member. If you simply want to get the deals being offered on Amazon Prime Day, you can start a 30-day free trial membership. However, if you’d like to be able to take advantage of Amazon Prime’s deals throughout the year, members pay $99 per year to maintain their membership. This includes deal days like Amazon Prime Day, movies, TV shows, discounted prices on books (and free books), among other benefits. That said, if you just want to get access to the Amazon prime deals, you can always sign up for the 30 day free trial, then cancel it later.
Other online retailers like Walmart and eBay are also working to combat Amazon’s Prime Day. These two retailers are expected to display some great deals as well.
As always, you are only truly capitalizing on a deal if the item is something that you planned on buying anyway. If you’ve been in the market for the items being offered through Amazon Prime Day, you may want to check the Web sale out. However, don’t spend any money that you would not have spent on that item anyway.
