What is Amazon Prime Day?

Prime Day is an unofficial holiday created by Amazon to celebrate the company’s birthday. Amazon Prime Day is exclusive to Amazon Prime customers. So if you're not already a member, it's worth signing up for! (You can even get a 30-day free trial.)

When is Amazon Prime Day?

This year, Prime Day starts on Monday, July 16 at 3 p.m. ET and runs through Tuesday, July 17. Deals start bright and early, and only last for a limited time until another deal pops up. Because of the time limit and quantity of products, you don’t want to wait if you find something you like! Order it right away. This page will continuously be updated as Prime deals roll in, so stay tuned for the most exciting deals on many different products and services.

Can I try Amazon Prime for free?

Enrolling in Amazon's free Prime trial is the best way to experience the program if you’re still on the fence about signing up for a membership. Free two-day shipping, free returns, grocery and house cleaning services, music, books, registries, and many more perks are included when you become a Prime member. And with a free trial, there’s no harm in taking a chance on it!

If your babies are off to college — weren’t they just starting high school? — this Prime Student free six-month trial is a must-have. They can purchase their textbooks and receive them within two days, shop for all of their dorm and school supply essentials, and have groceries delivered when they’re too busy studying for exams. Students also receive a discounted rate from the original Prime membership price, and will receive it up until graduation. After graduation, Amazon can help them transition to a regular account while they focus on taking on the real world — but let’s not fast forward too much!
