Prime Day is coming! July 15 and 16 is Amazon’s biggest sale of the year and I’m here to give you the details! I’ll provide you with a hub if-you-will to check-in with during the sale! I’ll be posting my finds and I’d love for you to feel welcome to leave in the comments anything great YOU find as well!
Amazon Prime Membership
If you aren’t already a member of Amazon Prime, or don’t know what I’m talking about (or aren’t living in 2019 with the rest of us, HA!), Prime is simply Amazon’s membership program. You pay for a yearly membership, and through this membership gain access to lower prices, free 2-day (or quicker!) shipping, and special Prime member-only deals and events. We’ve been Amazon Prime members for 7 years, and set up our account together as soon as we got married. A Prime account will cost you approximately $119 a year. If you’re a student though, and have access to your school’s email address, you can sign up for a Prime Student account, and only pay roughly $59. Try it out first though with a 6 month trial! If you’re not already a member of Prime, you can try it out with a 30- day free trial! You’ll NEED to be a Prime member in order to take advantages of the sales on Prime Day! If you’ve got littles on board, an Amazon Family 30-day free trial may be the route to take – think 20% discount on diapers subscriptions, exclusive Amazon Family coupons, etc!
Prime Day is a great time to start thinking ahead about Christmas gifts, fall/wintertime birthday gifts, baby registry gifts, and even a few things for yourself! I’m not kidding when I say Amazon has EVERYTHING, and we use it multiple times a week. The arrow under their logo goes from A to Z for a reason! An Amazon Prime membership is seriously the BEST investment. I don’t know what we would do without ours!
Save Even More With the Amazon Prime Rewards Visa Card
This is actually the only credit card we use, and it has been really nice! Since we buy SO many of our daily items from Amazon, it really made sense. We earn 5% back on our Amazon purchases using our Prime account, and those points (think Amazon dollars) get stored up in our account for use on future purchases. This is actually how we bought a ton of our Christmas gifts last year! When you check out, you have the option to redeem your points, or keep holding onto them. We also earn 2% back at restaurants and gas stations, and 1% back on other purchases. We sometimes will use it to pay all our bills as well, and that will help us accumulate even more points. This Prime Day, you can earn 6% back on every purchase, instead of the usual 5%, plus there will be certain items eligible for upwards of 15% back. You can apply for the Amazon Prime Rewards Visa Card HERE.
*Disclaimer: just a friendly reminder to be responsible with your credit card and opening a new line of credit. Always pay it off monthly and on time!
What I’m Looking For + What I’ll Be Sharing
This Prime Day, I’m mostly looking for deals related to baby, kids, home finds, and maybe a few cool tech items, depending on what is released! I need to find some cute “boy” things for Barrett, and some more “big girl” things for Adeline, mainly to use as Christmas and birthday gifts. With our big beach trip coming up soon, we also need to grab a few more last minute beach essentials. Another monitor, maybe a doorbell camera, and maybe a new bathroom light fixture is also on my list! Not looking to spend a fortune, but this mama always loves a good deal.
I plan to share deals as I find them, and will drop them below throughout the sale, with direct links to each. Items most pertaining to what I normally share on this blog, motherhood (baby, toddler, kids, mom!), fitness, fun lifestyle finds, will be top priority! Be sure to shop fast though, as many of the deals will not only have limited quantities, but often have a timer set, and when the deal is over or gone, that’s it!
They’re also advertising a few new product launches, available only for Prime members! One more reason to make sure your Prime account is ready to go!
Like I mentioned, I’ll be updating this post with deals as I come across them, and will also be posting to my blog’s Facebook page throughout the sale. Be sure you’re following it, or have liked it, so you don’t miss anything!
I’ll also drop the link to this blog post within my Instagram bio, so you can either check back there, or be sure to bookmark this post in your browser!
