What Is Amazon Prime Day?
Prime Day began in July 2015 when Amazon celebrated its 20-year anniversary with 24 hours of deals exclusively for Prime members. The event was a hit, so the following year Amazon branded it as a "deals holiday" comparing it to Black Friday. In 2017, Amazon expanded Prime Day from 24 hours to 30 hours. In 2018, Amazon expanded Prime Day again adding six hours for a total of 36 hours of deals. Prime Day 2019 will last for 48 hours and will be celebrated in 18 countries.
I'm not a Prime Member. How Can I Shop Prime Day deals?
To participate in Prime Day, you need a Prime membership. If you're already a subscriber, you're good to go. Otherwise, you can start your free, 30-day Prime membership trial at any time. After your trial is up, you'll be charged $119 for a full year of Prime unless you cancel. (Or you can opt to pay $12.99/month for Prime membership with no commitment. Just keep in mind, paying monthly for a full year is pricier than doing an annual payment).
Can Prime Student Members Shop Prime Day Deals?
Amazon Prime Student is a budget version of Amazon's traditional Prime membership. To qualify, you must be enrolled in college and have a valid edu-based e-mail address. Prime Student members get six free months of Prime (instead of the usual 30-day trial) and they only pay $59/year for membership, which is 50% cheaper than a full Prime membership. Prime Student members benefit from many of the same Prime perks such as speedy, 2-day shipping, Amazon Video streaming, and the ability to shop Prime Day deals. (Sign up for your free 6-month Prime Student trial here).
