Amazon Prime Day is the company’s own version of Black Friday, a yearly event that sees retailers everywhere lower prices for their customers and offer special deals.
Prime Day is set to take place on Amazon’s 20th birthday, July 15, 2015, and addresses its Prime customers, as the name might have already informed.
Good news is that the event will take place globally, in the nine (9) different countries that Amazon has an HQ in (United States, Canada, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Austria and Japan). So regardless of which of theses countries you may find yourself in, if you’re an Amazon Prime customers, you will be able to benefit from some serious discounts.
Greg Greeley, vice president over at Amazon Prime, gave a statement in a press release saying that “Prime Day is a one-day only event filled with more deals than Black Friday”. It’s certainly a bold claim to make, but if anyone can live up to it, the e-commerce giant surely can.
He went on to add that the event will exclusively address “Prime members around the globe”. The vice president informs that these members tell Amazon employees how much they love Prime on a daily basis, and Greeley promises that the company will keep working to make it even better.
Offers will start rolling in at 00:01 local time, and shoppers can expect to spot new deals every 10 minutes or so. Many of these deals are expected to be Lighting Deals, which means that prices for this items will either only be lowered for a limited amount of time, or that there will be a limited supply of these products and the Lighting Deal will last until they’re all sold out.
Those who don’t yet have a Prima account can still participate if they sign up for a free 30-day trial anytime before July 15. You will also have a full month to get a sense of what the service has to offer.
At the end of the 30th day, you can either chose to keep the account or cancel it. However, if you decide that you don’t to keep it, you should be careful to remember to go through with the cancel as Amazon will automatically charge you a 12 month subscription fee if you don’t.
Product categories that will benefit from deals on Amazon’s 20th birthday include electronics, movies, toys, clothing, sports and outdoor equipment, lawn and gardening tools, patio, everyday care essentials, back to school supplies and many more.
Amazon has through up Prime Day as a means of thanking its prime members for helping the company turn the corner and end up with a profit of $214 million in the fourth quarter of 2014, after reporting great losses in previous quarters.
