What is Amazon Prime Day?

Prime Day is Amazon’s annual deal event, spanning across categories including beauty, technology, fashion, appliances and more. There are major savings to be made for all. The catch? To access the extensive range of deals you must be an Amazon Prime member. So, if you have yet to sign up, now is the time.

With a 30-day free membership trial, you can reap the same benefits as other Prime members (expedited delivery, access to Prime Video, Prime Music and more). After that, and to maintain premium status, the membership is just $9.99 a month.
