Best Amazon Prime Day Deals 2019

What Is Amazon Prime Day?

When it first debuted in 2015, Amazon Prime Day was meant to honor the 20-year anniversary of Amazon — sort of like a big Jeff Bezos’ ‘thank you’ to all his Amazon Prime customers. Now in its fifth year, Prime Day has basically grown into the summertime Black Friday, where Primers get to nab mega discounts on all kinds of popular products, including its own private labels and Alexa-enabled devices. And this year is expected to be the best one yet!

When Is Amazon Prime Day & How Long Will I Have To Shop?

It’s official. Prime Day 2019 will begin at 12 a.m. PT on Monday, July 15 and conclude at 11:59 p.m. PT on Tuesday, July 16, according to an Amazon press release. This means that this year will be the longest Prime Day event in history, lasting for the first time for a full 48 hours (last year’s was only 36 hours).

What If I’m Not A Prime Member?

While you do have to be a Prime member to cash in on all the amazing Amazon Prime Day deals, there is a clever hack to still get in on the savings. If you sign up for a 30-day free trial of Amazon Prime prior to Prime Day, you’ll be able to shop all the Prime Day deals without committing to a full Prime membership — which costs $119 for an annual membership, and $12.99 per month for a monthly membership.

So, whether you’re in the market for kitchen gadgets or smart home accessories, you can pretty much count on saving big on Prime Day.
