Amazon Prime Day History

Amazon held the very first Prime day in 2015 to celebrate its 20th anniversary. The event was a success in terms of sales but not every customer liked it, specially that the deals only lasted for very short time and then most of the good deals were on Amazon’s own products only. Last year, in 2016, the Prime day was bigger and better. TV and Toys were few of the hottest categories.

Not sure which categories are going to dominate on 2017 Prime day but all we can do is hope for the best.

10 Things You Didn’t Know About Prime Day

Since majority of these super saver discounts are scheduled for year end, Amazon has come up with its mid year Prime day, third year in a row, that lets you get your favorite products on an amazing deal. On July 11th, Amazon is expected to come up with better deals and higher discounts for the year 2017 on tens of thousands of its products around the globe. With Amazon’s Prime Day around the corner, here’s a list of things you need to know before the day arrives to actually save up on those bucks rather than being in the illusion of having done so.

1. It lasts for more than a day (2017)

Although it is universally known as Prime day, and is expected to last a full 24hrs, Amazon has more to offer. The Prime Day is scheduled to last for 30 hrs full of bargains. Deals ranging from electronic appliances to your favorite music and books are available throughout the day for Prime Members. New deals are offered every 5 minutes and one needs to do their research to be a smart shopper in order to not get carried away with the discounts. You can track deals ahead of time through the Amazon app, Alexa virtual assistant and by keeping checking on various blogs.

2. Watch out for that great saving

If for some reason, you feel that the discount is just too good to be true, then you might as well trust your gut feeling and do some legwork before clicking on that Checkout option. Chances are that the product has been put up at a lower price before and might happen again. The average price for that product can be viewed through historical and that will let you have a fair idea if the deal is worth it or not.

3. Don’t wait to join the wait list

There will be a whole bunch of discounts and deals on the Prime day, including limited time offers such as Lightning deals. Since the buyers will be spending whole of their day adding items to their cart, they might not end up checking out with all of those things. This is where the wait-listing comes in handy. By joining the wait-list, you sign up to be in the queue for that product if the buyers decides not to buy that item.

 4. Free Trial

Becoming a prime member on Amazon costs you $99 per year. However As we approach the Prime Day, Amazon is also offering a discount on its Prime Membership at a rate of $79 per year. By becoming a prime member you are eligible for free two day shipping and lots more. However, if you’re not willing to pay those $79 and want to avail the Prime day discounts, you’re in for a treat. You can sign up for a free 30 day trial (6 months for students) and avail the Prime Day Discounts and when its time to pay for the membership, you can always unsubscribe if you don’t want to continue.

5. It Marks the Annual Anniversary of Amazon

Prime day marks the annual anniversary of Amazon, because of which it decided to make it a day for all its users to avails huge discounts and super saver deals. The Prime Day started back in 2015 when Amazon decided to upscale its customer base especially its Prime Members. This will be the third in a row.

6. Turn on One-Click Ordering to Win the Battle of the Shopaholics

One click Ordering lets you win the shopping race by saving time you would otherwise have wasted opening the link, adding details and in other purchasing steps. Since the internet will be going crazy on the Amazon website with offers being limited in stock, you do not want to miss the golden opportunity of getting the product for an all time low cost. Simply activate and click on the one click ordering to get your hands on the item before everyone else.

7. App Alerts for Lightning Deals

Amazon offers deals and discounts on a huge variety of products which you might not want to go through, wasting your precious time on Prime day. Therefore, for items appearing in the list of upcoming lightning deals, Amazon lets you set alerts to notify you once the deal starts. This is a great time saver because now you won’t have to spend the whole day waiting and refreshing the page, only to find out that they run out of the product while you went on a washroom trip.

8. Prime Members can Access Deals Days preceding Prime day

You might be wondering how is the membership useful other than free 2 day shipping. Here’s how. While everyone else gets to access the deals on the Prime Day, Prime Day deals start earlier. The week preceding Prime Day, Amazon offers great offers and discounts on books, music and movies. So stay tuned to the offers a little earlier than you planned to.

9. Stay Tuned for the Best of Deals

While CamelCamelCamel lets you know the historical prices of the products before you kick off a deal, other blogs will tell you which deals are the best ones, based on the original and discounted price differences. Do not be fooled by flashy discount percentages. It is advisable that you keep checking Twitter and certain blogs that will update you regarding the latest great deals and offers.

10. Alexa Lets you Bag Exclusive Deals

Alexa is a voice controlled software like Siri and Cortona. By downloading the Amazon Alexa, you get access to exclusive deals and offers prior to Prime Day. If you sign up as a Prime member through Alexa, you get a $20 discount. Similarly, by asking Alexa for offers on the Prime Day, you would be signing up for better deals and higher discounts than other users.

However, you need to remember that there are other sales at bigger brands that you might be missing out on. There’s a bright chance that they’re offering better discounts, so its always recommended to do your homework before kicking off an expensive deal to avoid regrets.
Happy Shopping!
