Amazon Prime Day Activities

  1. Become an Amazon Prime member

    If you aren't' an Amazon Prime member yet, Amazon Prime Day is a great time to join in the fun — and the deals. Amazon offers a 30-day trial period for free, or you can sign up for the full year and get free shipping, streaming, and other perks all year long, and of course, all the great deals on Amazon Prime Day!

  2. Follow the deals

    Amazon Prime Day involves thousands of deals, including lightning deals, which only last for a certain amount of time, usually a few hours, or until stock runs out. Follow Amazon on Twitter to keep track of the deals yourself, or follow a site like the Wirecutter, the New York Time's tech review site, that will sift through the deals for you and tell you the ones really worth jumping on.

  3. Go shopping

    The whole point of Amazon Prime Day is to buy, buy, buy, and you haven't really celebrated this holiday of commercialism unless you participate! Do some early holiday shopping, buy yourself a treat, or just pick up something you've been needing. Whatever you get, you'll save money — and that's the whole point!

Why We Love Amazon Prime Day

  1. It brings the Internet together

    One thing we love about Amazon Prime Day is that everybody knows about it — and everyone talks about it. For one day, all of our feeds and favorite blogs are picking their favorite deals and sharing them. It's a community!

  2. It's an excuse to shop

    We love shopping, and more than that, we love shopping sales. That's why Amazon Prime Day is so great! We get to shop guilt-free, knowing that we'll save money.

  3. We love a deal

    It's been scientifically proven that a good deal increases happiness, and companies know it! Amazon knows that a day of sales increases customer happiness and loyalty, and you know what — it does! So bump your serotonin and take part in a deal!
