“More Deals Than Black Friday” – Amazon’s Upcoming Prime Day

Written by Charlie

As miles and point hobbyists, part of the draw is getting great deals on travel and getting to go places that we may never have thought possible because of the miles and points we accrue. So, along with that comes the desire by many to snag great deals when they come up. For us, the Black Friday season is one of those great times to do that.

Prime Day – “More Deals Than Black Friday” – July 15

Amazon Page About Prime Day

While Black Friday does not have as many of the great deals as the day once had for shoppers, there are still many great deals to be had. So, when we see the giant online Amazon claim that they have an upcoming one day sale that will be “more deals than Black Friday,” they certainly got my attention!

To celebrate their 20th birthday, Amazon is rolling out sales globally and is making these available only to Prime members (but don’t worry – check below how you can gain access). They say that they will be having thousands of lightning sales throughout the day in many categories. This could be a great day to save a bunch! I am looking forward to seeing what they will be rolling out. The day is July 15 – so mark it on your calendars!

How To Gain Access

This big shopping day is only available to Amazon Prime members. I have been a Prime member for many years and consistently get my value out of it. Between their, photo storage, video streaming, music streaming, Kindle book lending library, free two-day shipping, and more, I really enjoy the convenience and cost savings it provides. I know not everyone gets the same value out of it, so there is good news for you!

You can sign-up for a 30 day trial for Amazon Prime* and be eligible for this big shopping day! Not only that, but all of the members below who have Prime access in the following ways will be eligible as well:

  • free trial members
  • invited guests of other members (Prime members are able to designate other people to share Prime)
  • Prime Fresh members
  • Amazon Mom members
  • Amazon Student members

So, there is no reason why you should not get access through one of those means and check out the deals that will be flowing. I will be updating an upcoming deal page here with what I think are some of the best deals (of course, as always, if you use my Amazon links on this site, I get a small commission – thank you!) and look forward to what you find as great deals as well!
