This article was written in 2017, but the advice will still work for 2018! Prime Day 2018 starts at 3pm Eastern on July 16th and lasts until Midnight Eastern on July 17th. If you came across this article after that, don’t worry! There are amazing benefits all year with Amazon Prime!
Most notably, Black Friday and Cyber Monday Prime-only Sales!
You may have seen all the hype all over the place about Prime Day on Amazon.
Pretty much, it’s 30 hours of sales exclusively for Prime Members. If you are a prime member already (high-five! Free 2-day shipping, am I right?) then hop on over to Amazon and see what’s on sale. You have from 9pm EDT/6pm PDT on July 10th until 3am EDT July 12th (midnight July 11 PDT) to rack up the deals. Just like for Black Friday, they aren’t releasing them all at once, so keep an eye out for new items going on sale! This year, you can also add things to your list and they will let you know if they go on sale. Super helpful. So you go now.

But I don’t have a Prime Membership!
Now, If you don’t have a prime membership don’t fret! You can get a membership! I know, it doesn’t seem like much of a deal if you have to pay for a membership that you didn’t plan on having to get these sales. But that’s the thing, you don’t have to pay for it! At least, not for 30-days!
Amazon offers a 30-day trial membership that starts immediately! So you can go sign up for that, get the savings and enjoy Prime for the next 29 days after that! (I take no responsibility if you love it and stick with it.)
Honestly, I do love Prime. I have been using it for years, and it pays for itself with free shipping at the holidays. (Not to mention helping with those last minute gifts without having to brave the stores!) Now that I use it for business too, it’s almost indispensable.
Go ahead and give it a shot now and get some killer deals! You can come back and thank me later.
