Amazon Prime Day Is Coming. Here’s How to Take Advantage of It for Free​

Amazon prime Days coming


Amazon Prime Day is coming! July 11 – 12! Get Your College Dorm Room Essentials NOW! 

If you’re a Prime member, you know this is a reason to get excited. This is especially true if you are packing off a kid to college. There are many dorm room essentials needed. These are the biggest shopping days next to Black Friday and Cyber Monday because of the deep discounts on brand-name products and other smaller goods that are especially wanted as college dorm room essentials.  If you haven’t taken advantage of membership yet, well, it’s prime time to get Amazon Prime

Right now, Prime’s 30-day free trial offer for new members will give you access to Prime Day for free! That’s right! You can take advantage of all Prime Day has to offer before you need to pay the membership fee! 

Yes, I am one of Amazon’s minions that are trying to earn a buck by luring you to click on products and services I’ve found useful (someone gotta keep the lights on for our podcast!) But I couldn’t be called a friend if I didn’t share this opportunity with you.

So much more than just free shipping

The best-known reason people join is Prime offers members free shipping on loads of products. If you are an avid Amazon shopper, the $139 a year (or $14.99 a month) membership may pay for itself in savings on shipping alone. But there are many more reasons why you’ll want to keep your membership.


According to the Amazon website Prime Membership includes:

  • free, fast delivery, 
  • unlimited access to award-winning movies and series with Prime Video, 
  • 100 million songs in shuffle mode and the most ad-free top podcasts available in the Amazon Music app with Amazon Music, 
  • free games with Prime Gaming, 
  • more than 3,000 books and magazines with Prime Reading, 
  • unlimited photo storage with Amazon Photos, 
  • exclusive deals and in-store savings at Amazon Fresh and Whole Foods Market stores across the U.S,… 
  • Prime members even receive fast, free delivery on prescriptions from Amazon Pharmacy and prescription savings at more than 60,000 participating pharmacies in the U.S.

If you’re already a Prime member you can get 20% when you spend $50 off your back to school purchases, RIGHT NOW. Just click the link below and follow the instructions on that page. 

Here‘s is a sample of the types of discounts that Amazon is offering its Prime members.
