It's heeeere! Amazon Prime Days are Tuesday AND Wednesday, October 13 and 14th. Do you know what you're buying? Read on for some ideas...
Are you a member of Amazon Prime?
I know - it seems kind of steep to pay the $119 a year fee for an Amazon Prime subscription, but if you're not a member you miss out of pretty much making that money right back in the shipping you'll pay. I'm sure you've heard of Amazon Prime Day. That's the day that your friends who are really organized do their Christmas shopping and tell you about it December 15th when you're running like a nut around trying to find the latest gadget your teenager wants. Sound familiar?
What is Prime Day?
Amazon Prime day is a bargain hunter's dream. It's not even a day - it's TWO DAYS. 48 hours of deals, steals and big time squeals. If you've wanted an Amazon Echo, Prime is YOUR day. Instant Pot? Yup. Air Fryer - I can't imagine there won't be a deal on one. There's 1 million - YUP - 1 million deals. So pray for a rainy day, my friend, because the fun starts on Tuesday, October 13th at 12:00am PT! And if you don't have Prime, you can't play— so it's a great time to get a free trial!
Here's the whole scoop:
- Not a member of Prime? You can sign up for an Amazon Prime 30-Day free trial. It's as simple as that!
- There'll be deals coming at you for two days and I'll do my best to keep you in the loop here and on Instagram.
- If you're a current Prime customer and you've wanted to get your groceries shopped for and delivered right to your front door toot suite, there's a AmazonFresh free trial that's pretty sweet. [Note: You have to live in an area served by AmazonFresh.]
- Have Alexa? You can start shopping ASAP. Just ask her, "Alexa, what are my deals?" and she'll set you up! And once you order you can ask her, "Alexa, where's my stuff?". Although I'll tell you if I talked to my mom like that...
