What is Prime day?
Every summer, the e-store giant Amazon celebrates its own shopping festival called Prime Day, where members of Amazon’s customer club can take advantage of exclusive offers on selected products. So it really has nothing directly to do with Amazon’s streaming service Prime Video. This year, Prime Day has been postponed to October due to the coronavirus that delayed the annual discount party.
When is Prime day?
In 2020, Prime Day will take place from 13 to 14 October. Although the name suggests that it is only about one day, of course Amazon can not stay based on previous years, so just like most shopping holidays, Prime Day lasts longer than 24 hours. In 2018, the shopping party lasted a full 36 hours! Not only that, in the weeks leading up to Prime Day, Amazon celebrated with new offers for its members every day.
What can I find on Prime Day?
Amazon has historically had the biggest discounts on its own products, such as the e-book reader Kindle, smart speaker Echo and Fire TV products. They also have major price reductions on their subscription services Audible and Prime Video. We can also expect great deals on laptops and Apple products like Mac and Apple Watch, based on the deals we saw during Prime Day 2019.
Amazon has so far not launched any Swedish or even Scandinavian site.
Here are the Amazon sites that celebrate Prime Day 2020:
How do I become a member of Amazon Prime?
If you are a member of one of Amazon’s European sites, you can sign up as a Prime member by clicking Discover Prime when you are logged in. It’s free the first month, then it costs 7.99 euros / pound if you are a member of, for example Amazon.de or Amazon.co.uk.
Why should I join Amazon Prime?
In addition to the opportunity to bargain during Prime Day, Amazon Prime members receive several great benefits. Among other things, you get a 30-minute priority to time-limited offers (so-called “lightning deals”), access to Amazon’s streaming service Prime Video, the cloud service Prime Photos, the e-book library Prime Reading and ad-free twitching and a free subscription to one channel a month.
