Prime Day is in a few days – here’s how to crush it with early bird offers – WKBN.com
Getting ready for the first day
With time running out until Prime Day, it’s time to start making the preparations. If you expect to head to the Amazon home page on the same day and grab some of the most coveted products at a great price, you will likely be disappointed.
The sheer volume of discounts and products can be overwhelming, making the event difficult to navigate without a plan. Don’t worry, we’ve broken down everything you need to know about Amazon Prime Day 2021.
During the event, we’ll keep you updated with the best deals on all your must-have items.
How to access Prime Day
The exact times for Prime Day 2021 are Monday, June 21 at 12:00 a.m. until Tuesday, June 22 at 11:59 p.m. PT.
This event is open to all Amazon Prime members. If you don’t have Amazon Prime subscription, now is the perfect time to take advantage of their 30-day free trial. Depending on the items you are looking for, you could save enough money on a single offer to cover your membership for an entire year.
It is important to note that not all offers are available during the 48 hours. This could be a limited time offer lasting only a few hours, or a product could sell out before the event ends. If you find the deal you’re looking for, grab it while you can and be sure to check back often for the latest price drops.
How to get a discount on the Amazon Prime subscription
Amazon wants to make sure its membership is affordable for everyone, which is why it offers discounts to multiple groups of people.
College students have access to a 6-month free trial of Amazon Prime Student, with a 50% reduction on the subscription after the end of the trial. They can also receive Amazon Music Unlimited for just $ 0.99.
If you receive government aidincluding an EBT or Medicaid card, you also get a Prime membership at almost 50% off with a caveat: you must apply for this reduction again every year. Customers in most states can even use their SNAP EBT card on the grocery store and receive free delivery.
Ways to make Prime Day easier
