Along with Black Friday, Amazon Prime Day is one of the biggest shopping holidays of the year. Shoppers can always count on deep discounts on household products, premium vacuums, electronics, 4K TVs, video games, laptops, clothes and shoes, kitchen appliances, Amazon’s smart home devices, such as the Kindle Paperwhite and the new Echo Show 5, and much more.
However, 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 gain 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 trial. Amazon 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 Amazon Prime Video and Amazon Music. And yes, a free pass to Prime Day.
While Prime Day itself 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) and access to exclusive movies and TV shows, such as Manchester by the Sea, Fleabag, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan, 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 at the end of November this year.
Sign up for a free 30-day Amazon Prime trial now, and take advantage of the best deals coming July 15th.
