With so many people missing PRIME DAY last year because they were “not a member”; I’m here to tell you that I have a work around for this year. Now, before we get to that your probably wondering what PRIME DAY is…. It is basically like Black Friday and Cyber Monday but with twice as much inventory combined!
Now, here’s the tricky part and the reason why so many people missed out on these deals last year. In order to participate in Prime Day, you MUST be an Amazon Prime Member. Keep reading because I’m going to tell you how to get access to Prime Day deals without spending a penny! But first let me tell you what Amazon offers to it’s Prime members EVERY day of the year:
- Unlimited FREE 2 day shipping with NO minimum order size!
- Movie, TV, & Music streaming. (In a Netflix-style)
- Borrow Kindle Books.
For an Amazon Prime Membership they charge $99 per year. ($49 if your a college student)
In my opinion, it’s well worth it considering Netflix costs $119.88 per year but you don’t get free unlimited 2 day shipping, eBooks, or music with that.
Here’s how to get the Prime Day access without spending a penny:
If you’ve never tried the Amazon Prime Membership before, you can get a free 30-day trial — and that trial membership qualifies you for Prime Day savings PLUS you get all the Prime member perks for the full 30 days FREE.
If you’re a college student, you can get a six-month free trial of Amazon Prime THEN if you’d like to keep it just pay the $49 at the student discount price of %50 off.
Amazon App…. Will I need it?
The Amazon App is one I’d place into the “Tips and Tricks” pile of this Prime ordeal. It can be very challenging to keep up with the deals that interest you, especially those scheduled to begin later in the day. If you forget, you might miss out!
The App lets you track upcoming deals and you will receive notifications when they’re about to start. It’s compatible for Fire (natch), Android and iOS in their associated app stores.
