What Is Prime Day Anyway?

Amazon Prime Day GETTYAmazon Prime Day gets underway next week
Conrad Doyle | 07 July, 2017, 19:33

Earlier in the year, Amazon had promotions around select products through Prime Now, so we could see that in either the lead-up or on Prime Day proper.

You will need an Amazon Prime membership for access to the deals, which is $99 a year with free two-day shipping and other benefits like Prime Video, Prime Music and more.

Prime members can shop all of Amazon's incredible deals starting July 10 at 6 p.m. PT (4 p.m. PT for voice shoppers). Eastern time on Monday, July 10, and keeps running for a sum of 30 hours of shopping time.

Amazon will roll out new deals every day leading up to Prime Day as well, beginning June 29 at 1 a.m. ET.

"This is going to be the most exciting Prime Day yet for Amazon voice shoppers", said Assaf Ronen, Vice President Voice Shopping.

The annual event was launched in 2015 as it shattered global sales records by selling 34.4 million products on the day. They'll discount a Kindle just because it's Friday. Customers should ask often as deals change frequently at Amazon.

Make sure to refresh so you don't miss any.

In recent years, Amazon has begun hosting a short term promotional event called Prime Day in order to encourage more people to sign up to its subscription-based suite of services. Past portions of Prime Day have included value cuts on everything from Echo speakers to can bowl lights. Add a deal you're waiting for to your Watchlist on the app and avoid sitting at your laptop all day hitting refresh.

The bar we generally use for a very good deal on a tool set is roughly 50 cents per tool, so when you can get a 210-piece set for $75, you should jump at the opportunity. This could allow you to offer great deals while also creating buzz around your business and potentially even creating a great tradition your customers look forward to year after year. Track and shop deals while at home or on-the-go with deal alerts on the Amazon App. Amazon sold 20 times its normal daily sales and said it was the biggest single day sale ever. Maybe you really need a 12-pack of gummy bears and a Disney Princess Rapunzel's Royal Ribbon Salon.

Gayle Hunter, Lifestyle Hunter, which sells a range of jewellery and lifestyle products said: "We're running loads of exciting offers across our Luxelu product range throughout the United Kingdom and Europe on Prime Day, so everyone will have the chance to grab a bargain".
