There is a lot of hype going around right now about Amazon Prime Day… but what is this magical day that is currently getting all the attention?
Think Black Friday in July, but better, and only on Amazon.
The idea behind Amazon Prime Day is to entice people to sign up for Amazon Prime by offering INSANE deals – said to be better than Black Friday or Cyber Monday. To score on Amazon Prime Day you do have to be a Prime member, which is $99 per year, but they do offer a 30-day free trial.

I have blogged about my obsession with Amazon Prime before, but I just can’t preach about how many times they have saved my life after becoming a parent. Amazon of course basically sells EVERYTHING these days, and with a Prime membership, you get free 2-day shipping on all your orders! This is especially awesome for me since my whole family is on the East Coast, and it is easy to get last-minute gifts across the country without paying a dime to ship them!
There have been times where I desperately needed to get my kid a present for a holiday and didn’t have the time to run to the store to shop… other times where I see something in a store (*cough* Pottery Barn) and though I love it feel I can get it for a better price. In both instances Amazon Prime saves me with the ability to find adorable and cute items online and get them extremely quickly without paying shipping.
Well, even if you don’t feel you are ready to take the Prime plunge, I do suggest at least taking advantage of their 30-day free trial to score some Prime Day deals!
Amazon Prime Day officially starts at 9PM ET on July 10th and runs for 30 full hours. July 11th 2017 is the day they are advertising as “Prime Day”, but I would log on the 10th to try to get some early bird specials. I would absolutely suggest reading Amazon’s official guide on how to make the most out of your Amazon Prime Day shopping.
I have heard that there will be a lot of Amazon specific deals such as on the Echo, Kindle, etc. but you can also expect it on things like TVs, gaming consoles, and so on. They are also offering an additional 20% off Amazon Home services, ans special deals for Prime customers who have baby registries.
If you have any questions please be sure to reach out and ask! Good luck with your Prime Day shopping all!
