What is Amazon Prime Day?
Every year since 2015, Amazon hosts a 48-hour worldwide savings event, with massive deals on literally hundreds of thousands of items. Maybe even millions – it’s hard to tell just how many markdowns there are!
Fun fact: Amazon Prime Day first took place on July 15, 2015, to mark the anniversary of the company by chief executive Jeff Bezos.1
It’s important to know that the deals are only available to Amazon Prime Members. However, if you are not a Prime member already, you can try Amazon Prime FREE for 30 days!
We’ve been Amazon Prime members pretty much since the beginning and it is well worth it! The savings and the free 2-day Prime shipping (on certain items) really add up! It’s one of our favorite ways to save money year round too!
When is Amazon Prime Day 2019?
Amazon Prime Day 2019 kicks off at precisely 12am PST on July 15 and lasts for 48 hours until the clock strikes 12am on July 17th.2
This is an awesome opportunity to snag that special item you’ve been eyeing when they are on the deepest discounts of the year.
Or if you’re good at planning ahead, you can get all your Christmas shopping done early and save a ton of money at the same time!
