What is Prime Day?
Amazon Prime Day used to live up to the name when it only ran for a single 24-hour period but it has now extended into a full-on 48-hour bonanza of deals across Amazon brand items like the Echo and Kindle, as well as a whole range of goods of just about anything. It can also be used for product launches, like the TurboGrafx-16 from last year.
Do I need to be an Amazon Prime member?
Yep! Offers made available during Amazon Prime Day are only able to be purchased exclusively by Prime members.
The good news is if you’ve not joined before, you can sign up for a free one-month Amazon Prime before, and you’ll be eligible for Prime Day deals when they’re live. All you need to do is head over to the Prime membership page on Amazon UK or Amazon US to register, and you can even cancel your membership immediately after Prime Day to avoid being charged.
If you have already used the free trial, though, an Amazon Prime membership will cost you £79/$99 for a year or £7.99/$10.99 a month. But do keep an eye out for a discount on a Prime membership during the event!
As an Amazon Prime member, you not only get access to the Prime Day sale, you’ll also get free one-day shipping, Prime Video, Prime Music, Prime Reading and Twitch Prime (which also makes you eligible for some free games).
For students, you can sign up for a six-month free trial of Prime and get a 50% discount on membership when the trial expires.
The other thing worth mentioning is that Amazon’s Prime Day deals also apply to their own products, as Amazon-brand devices like the Alexa and Fire TV will be subject to exclusive deals for those who have Prime memberships. If you’re all in on Amazon’s merch, this could be a very good time for you to reinforce your collection.
Of course, there’s no shortage of other deals and bargains to find, even beyond Prime Day. Go check out our sister site Jelly Deals for more info on where to find great deals or the best products, or go to the Jelly Deals Twitter for moment-fresh info on the best sales around.
