Amazon’s annual one-day-sales event called Amazon Prime Day starts today, July 12th. Once again, the company is advertising Prime day as the largest sale of the year, even larger than Black Friday or Cyber Monday.
This will be the second mega sale event of this type as Prime Day was introduced last year for its 20th birthday.
Amazon Prime Day
New deals will be starting as often as every five minutes all day today only. In fact, the company is touting over 100,000 deals exclusive for Prime members. There will also be contests, giveaways, sweepstakes, and other events to help celebrate the day.
There is a catch though for all this savings goodness. You have to be an Amazon Prime member which is $99 annually, but you can sign up for a free 30-day trial if you’ve not yet made the plunge for a Prime Membership. Honestly, with free two-day shipping, I personally believe the $99 a year pays for itself, but that’s just me.
