Along with Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Amazon Prime Day—which is happening on October 13 and 14—is one of the biggest shopping holidays of the year. You can snag incredibly deep discounts on all sorts of products—including vacuums, electronics, 4K TVs, video games, laptops, clothes and shoes, kitchen appliances and Amazon’s smart home devices, such as the Echo Dot, Fire TV Recast, the new Fire TV Stick Lite and much more.
Prime Day is only available to Amazon Prime members, so if you’re not part of the program, you won’t be eligible for all the big savings and deals. But, there’s a way to get access to the exclusive annual shopping event without shelling out $119 per year for a membership ($78 per year for college students or $72 per year for EBT or Medicaid cardholders).
Simply sign up for a free Amazon Prime trial. The retail giant offers a lengthy 30-day free trial to entice potential members to take advantage of its exclusive benefits, including free two-day shipping, discounts at Amazon and Whole Foods and access to Prime Video and Amazon Music. And yes, a free pass to Prime Day.
If you sign up for a free trial now, you can use the Amazon Prime service for all the Prime Day 2020 deals, including Lightning Deals and Gold Box Deals. While Prime Day is now a whopping 48 hours, flash deals frequently start and end sporadically throughout the event.
Just remember to cancel your membership before the 30 days are up so you won’t get charged for a yearly subscription.
However, if you enjoy getting access to daily deals, free two-day shipping (sometimes one-day or two-hour delivery), discounts at Whole Foods, Amazon Music, free Kindle e-books and exclusive Prime Video movies and TV shows, such as Manchester by the Sea, Fleabag, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, The Boys and more, then just treat yourself to a membership for the entire year.
This is truly the best and smartest way to save even more money during Prime Day! Trust us, you won’t see lower prices on Amazon until Black Friday.
Sign up for a free 30-day Amazon Prime trial and take advantage of the early Prime Day deals right now.
