It’s no secret that I love Amazon Prime. We live in an age of instant gratification, and I love that I can find competitive pricing on just about any item on Amazon and have it within just a couple days. Amazon Prime Day kicks off on July 15 and actually lasts two days this year. Here is my Prime Day Shopping Guide.
What is Amazon Prime?
I’m confident that the majority of you reading this post not only know what Amazon Prime is, but you’ve probably ordered from Prime at least a time or two. For the rest of you, seriously, what are you waiting for? Here is a run-down of the benefits you get for just $119 per year (or $12.99 per month):
- Fast, free delivery on millions of items: Shipping is always free and typically takes just two days for most items.
- Video: Members enjoy exclusive access to hundreds of Amazon Originals and tons of popular movies and TV shows.
- Music: Unlimited access to over 50 million songs.
- Reading: Access to thousands of free books, with the option of reading from any device or using Prime Narration for audio version.
- Prime Pantry: skip the grocery store and enjoy free delivery of loads of common grocery items.
- Save at Whole Foods: Get up to 10% off select items at your favorite store.
- Prime Day deals (read on!)
If you are not a Prime member, now is the time to hop on the bandwagon and take advantage of their best deals of the year. Best part is, you can join with your first month free! Plus, you can add family members to your Prime account for free.

Also be aware that there are thousands of deals available on Prime Day. Amazon hasn’t released the list of specific products, but we can definitely make some educated guesses. I’ve also added some things to my list to “keep an eye on”. Keep in mind that while some deals will last all day, others are for just a few hours. If you find a deal you can’t pass up, don’t wait on it. So are you ready for my Prime Day Shopping Guide?
