What is AMAZON prime day?

It’s the month of July. And that, for avid shoppers around the world, means the biggest online shopping festival of all times! I’m talking about Amazon Prime Day, the international shopping event, designed to give out the best products on the site at discounted prices. Thousands of deals are available on the site for Prime members, and since it has started, things have only become better. 


Amazon first created this shopping event in 2015 to celebrate their 20th anniversary. 

Started four years back, Amazon Prime Day has established itself as the biggest shopping events in the world, surpassing the Black Friday or even the Cyber Monday. Last year, around 90 million users logged in to their Amazon account to avail the offers. And this year, too, it is likely to see the same rush during the lightning deal offers during the whole Amazon Prime Day events. 

So, don’t miss your chance to get the best products at the best rates.

when is AMAZON prime day?

The 5th edition of Amazon Prime Day, 2019 kicks off at 12 am PST July 15th and ends at 11:59 pm PST July 16th!, 48-hours straight. So, keep your cart ready to grab the best deals for your favourite items. ​


By now, you’re probably excited to know how to enjoy this massive shopping festival! You can make the most of the deals by following just a few simple steps. So, here’s what you can to do to be a part of the Amazon Prime Day discounts:


As you must have understood by now, you need to be a Prime member to avail the offers in this year’s Amazon Prime Day. There are many benefits come with the Prime membership, like enjoying a two-day priority shipping option, getting access to Prime video streaming platform, free books and music, etc. 


For frequent Amazon users, the Amazon Prime Store Card is an excellent device, especially in this time of the year. You can get 5% cash-back daily on specific products when you use the card at the time of purchase. On Amazon Prime Day, this percentage goes up even more, giving you huge returns. While the store card is not mandatory for availing the offers on Prime Day, It’s definitely an added advantage to have one, as you can save much more with it. 


If you have been thinking about gifting yourself an Alexa-enabled device, now is the right time to do it, so that as an Alexa user, you receive deals before the others. Alexa and Prime are a great combination, giving you easy access to purchase, order status, reorders, etc. Just ask Alexa, and get the job done. On Prime Day, it will definitely make shopping easier and faster to have Alexa as your shopping buddy! 


Prime Day is all about the Daily Deals and the Lighting Deals. So, you have to keep an eye on these deals to grab them before your favourite products are gone. Lightning Deals offer products on sale for a short period of time. The number of products on discount is also limited, which is why it doesn’t take long for the items to sell out.  With Daily Deals, however, the number of products will be available until the inventory is sold out.


All Prime members can avail the super deals between midnight on 15th July and 11:59 PM on 16th July, but very few members actually know how to spot the best and the right deals for you. Prime Day starts with signing up for Prime. Become a Prime Member and get access to all Prime Day Deals.


Otherwise, it is really a difficult job to get the right price of the right product that you really want among millions of product available on the upcoming Prime Day. A blink of an eye, and you can miss the best opportunity to buy the products you really need.

Besides the usual deals, Amazon lists their best items at an unbelievable price in the ‘lightning deals’ segment. And, the deals keep appearing every few minutes during the whole 48-hour of the Prime Day. So, it is quite impossible to track all the deals.


Amazon gives their Prime members a chance to buy fabulous items at a discounted price. So, if you want to grab the best deals and don’t have a Prime membership yet, go ahead and signup for their 30-day free trial to get the best deals WITHOUT PAYING A PENNY.

Besides this grand opportunity, you are going to enjoy a two-day priority shipping option year round.

Additionally, you’ll also get access to Prime video streaming platform and can store unlimited photos in the cloud.

Free Books & Magazines for download, etc and a lot more!


For that, the best strategy is to set a price alert for the items you want to buy. You can use several online tools like Camelcamelcamel and Pricejot, to set your price alert. Most of these tools have browsers extensions to make them even handier.

Amazon app is the best way to access the best deals and more Prime Day-centric offers.

Install the app on your Andriod, or IOS devices. This way, you can view the Prime Day deals in advance, because there are many exclusive promotions available directly on the app.

You can learn to get the best of this year’s Prime Day by going to the “Get ready for Prime Day” segment on the app. The app is also going to help you to get Lightning Deals, available in both 15th and 16th July this year. You can also use the ‘scan barcode’, ‘view in room’, and ‘search with camera’ features of the Amazon app from 8th to 14th July, to get up to 20% discount on the selected products.

With every passing year, Amazon includes more Prime Day-specific offers on their app, which can be availed at a lightning-fast speed. It is expected of Amazon to have app-specific offers this year, too, like the previous year.

Once you click on the ‘Prime Day’ banner on the app, you can view the promotional items and events. You can have exclusive access to the opening concert by your favourite celebs or live gaming events before or during the Prime Day sale.

The Amazon Assistant browser extension is another helpful feature to get the best discounts on this year’s Prime Day. Last year, this extension saved an additional $5 on the purchase of $25 or more. This year, too, extra benefits are highly anticipated.
