Amazon Prime Day is right around the corner, and this year it promises to be bigger and better than ever. One of the internet's biggest shopping events of the year will last 48 hours according to Business Insider, making it the longest Prime Day in Amazon history (up from 36 hours last year). I'm still trying to wrap my head around the fact that over one million products will be discounted for Prime members. Wowza. And remember, while Amazon Prime Day officially starts at 12 a.m. PT on July 15, some early Prime Day deals have popped up already and will continue to in the coming days.
Speaking of which, I'm excited to share some of the best deals I've found so far, as there are some serious savings to be had for online shoppers. But remember, membership has its privileges, and you must be a Prime member to access these savings. And while Amazon did raise their membership prices last year ($119 per year or $12.99/month), Prime Day deals and member benefits make it worth the added cost, in my opinion. New members can try a free 30-day Prime membership trial as an incentive to join, and honestly, I can't think of a better time of year to give it a go. Happy shopping, friends.
