Amazon Prime Day is almost here, bringing all sort of enticing deals from the world’s largest online retailer. This year’s Black-Friday-In-The-Summer starts July 16th at 3 pm ET and runs until midnight July 17th.
Of course, you must be an Amazon Prime member to share in the wonders of Prime Day. If you’re not yet a Primer, you can sign up for a free 30-day trial membership here. Now, let’s go shopping! Here are a few of the more intriguing Prime Day deals:
Kindle Unlimited – If you’ve used Amazon’s all-you-can-read ebook service, this is the time to try it. Get three months of Kindle Unlimited for 99 cents.
Movies and TV shows – Prime Day shoppers can save up to 50% on some of the most popular movies and TV shows in the digital download, DVD, and Blu-Ray formats.
Basic Stuff – Save up to 20% on Amazon Basics products in 15 categories that cover pretty much every aspect of life from home décor to computer accessories to outdoor gear to kitchenware.
The Newest, New Gadget – Get $100 off the new Amazon Echo Show, which is a video-enabled version of the Echo smart speaker. The Show lets you make video calls, watch Amazon Video content, monitor security cameras, and otherwise rule the world from your kitchen. With the Prime Day discount, you’ll pay just $129 for all that power.
A final word. I wouldn’t be a good financial advisor if I didn’t point out that buying something on sale doesn’t really save you any money if you otherwise would not have bought the item. So, be cool in the heat of Prime Day. Grab the deals on stuff you need and really, really want. And leave the rest of the bargains to your fellow Primers.
