Amazon Prime Day 2019: Shop for your loved ones or for yourself!
This post contains affiliate links. See our full disclosure here.
Last year I accidentally scheduled a “no-spend month” for myself starting the day before Amazon Prime Day! Ha! Little did I know! The truth is, if you are a smart shopper, you can save money by shopping on Amazon Prime Day, and in 2019 the “day” is actually TWO days.
When it comes to shopping, I am not a hunter-gatherer! No window shopping for me! I much prefer to walk in, look around quickly, and walk right out of the store if I don’t find what I want. This is why online shopping works so well for me: I don’t need to please a salesperson or spend hours looking for one or two items. I can get online, search for an item, see if my size or color is available, and either order it or log out.
So don’t feel guilty about shopping on Prime Day! You can use it as a way to shop efficiently and cost-effectively for yourself or the people in your life who could really benefit from a gift. What are you in the market for?
In a nutshell, Amazon Prime Day is a way for Amazon to promote its Prime service, which offers members free fast shipping on many products. It also offers members streaming of movies, TV shows, and music. Amazon Prime is a subscription service that currently costs $119 per year.
Amazon Prime Day has become one of the biggest shopping days of the year, rivaling Black Friday after Thanksgiving Day.
Is Amazon Prime Day for You?
Is Prime Day for you? Probably. If you are in the market for a major purchase, or even for a smaller purchase you had been planning to make, it’s worth it to check the deals on Amazon during that 48-hour window. The key is to know whether it is actually a good deal. Know the standard price of the item you are looking for, so that you know whether the Prime Day price is a good deal.
You must be a Prime member to participate, and you can sign up for a free Amazon Prime trial here.
I have saved hundreds of dollars in shipping by being a Prime customer, and I love that my purchases arrive at my door the next day or day after. This has saved my skin at Christmas and even for Bible studies, when I hadn’t purchased the book until the last minute!
When Does Amazon Prime Day Start?
In 2019, Amazon Prime Day starts at 12:00 a.m. Pacific Time (PT; that’s 2:00 a.m. Central time) on Monday, July 15, and continues until 11:59 p.m. PT on July 16. This gives you a 48-hour window to shop the for Prime deals.
