It’s that time again, folks. Amazon Prime Day is upon us and you don’t want to miss out on some of the best deals and other great perks that are reserved exclusively for Amazon Prime Members.
Over the years, Amazon Prime has revolutionized online shopping. Originally Amazon Prime Members signed up for the free shipping, but Amazon has expanded their offerings over time and now you can actually get SAME DAY SHIPPING in select cities. You also get a discount at Whole Foods which is also included in the delivery service. This is in addition to access to the entertainment services like Amazon Photos, Amazon Music, Amazon Prime Original programming and more.
Amazon Prime Day is one of the most anticipated shopping events in the world. And this year is no exception. As a matter of fact, this year brings us all of the exciting deals and surprises in addition to some new things.
This year not only can you get the best prices on all the things you want to buy, but this year in the lead-up to the two-day Prime Day 2019 on July 15th and 16th, Amazon Music will put on a show. A concert to be exact. The concert will be streamed live via Prime Video, of course, and features performances from SZA, Dua Lipa and Becky G, not to mention a little-known headliner, Taylor Swift. Amazon Prime subscribers in 200 countries will be able to tune in for the show July 10th at 9 PM ET. After it airs live, it will be available for replay for a “limited time,” and it will also include deals on other Amazon stuff. Previews planned for the stream include teasers for Jack Ryan, Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Carnival Row, its superheroes-gone-bad show The Boys and Undone, which comes from the folks that bring you Netflix’s Bojack Horseman.
This year I wanted to focus my Prime Day article on things that will enhance your home entertainment setup. But with so many great deals, I had to throw in some that I just thought were smart buys. Obviously, there will be great offers for all the Amazon Fire TV devices. You should definitely pick up at least one Amazon Fire TV device. Even if you already own one or more of these devices, you never know when you might want another. They also make great gifts for Christmas, so pick them up while they are dirt cheap. Keep in mind that if you are purchasing Amazon Fire TV devices to be used to install the software in my tutorials, you should be using a VPN. IPVanish VPN is my recommended VPN and now is the time to sign up.
Amazon Prime Day is a way for Amazon to show its appreciation to all the Amazon Prime members. They obviously make a lot of money as well, but you get some great deals on the process. But what if you don’t have a Prime membership? Can you still get the deals? The answer is YES! Just sign up for an Amazon Prime trial membership and shop to your heart’s content. The caveat is if you have canceled a Prime membership within the past 12 months, you won’t be eligible for the free trial. The link below takes you to the Amazon Prime Free Trial offer.
Leading up to Prime Day 2019, Amazon is offering teasers or early deals to get everyone in gear for the big day.
