Amazon Prime Day is coming back this July

AmazonAmazon

Last year Amazon celebrated the company’s first ever “Prime Day,” a one-day event that rivaled Black Friday in savings and promotions across the site. The event was a huge success, and the company will be offering another Prime Day to its customers.

The event will take place on Tuesday, July 12, and it will feature more than 100,000 deals worldwide exclusively for Prime members. If you’re not a Prime member there are still ways to take advantage of the deals. Both new and existing members in U.S., U.K., Spain, Japan, Italy, Germany, France, Canada, Belgium, and Austria, will find deals across nearly all departments and categories.Members in the U.S. can shop starting at midnight PT, with new deals as often as every five minutes throughout the day. To participate in Prime Day, sign-up or start a free trial of Prime on or before July 12 by visiting amazon.com/primeday.

“Prime Day is a unique opportunity to discover new items and great deals, on top of our already low prices. Following last year’s record sales, we have dramatically increased the inventory behind many deals. In fact, in the U.S. we have nearly double the TV units compared to Black Friday and Cyber Monday combined,” said Greg Greeley, Vice President Amazon Prime. “Even with this massive selection we know many of the Prime Day offers will sell out, so members should download the Amazon shopping app to receive notifications on their favorite deals.”

As reported last year, Prime Day was the biggest day for sales internationally up to that point. Beyond the top selling deals, and best-selling devices, there were other chart topping categories in each Prime-eligible country.

In addition to blockbuster deals on Prime Day, July 12, Amazon will offer countdown deals for Prime members every day from July 5 through July 11. That means members in the U.S. will find summer entertainment deals starting July 5 including a 32-inch TV bundle with a Fire TV Stick for $119.99.

Countdown deals will include gadgets on-the-go, products perfect for summer travel, for foodies and outdoor living, back-to-school and in-home essentials and daily deals on top of TV series and blockbuster movies available to rent or purchase and instantly stream through the Amazon Video app on TVs, mobile devices, Amazon Fire TV, Fire TV Stick, and Fire tablets, or online.

In celebration of Prime Day, Amazon customers have an opportunity to win an unforgettable Prime Music Experience. In the U.S., starting today and running through Prime Day, customers can listen for a chance to win one of twelve unforgettable experiences with top artists, including Carrie Underwood, Blink-182, Norah Jones, Flo Rida, The Lumineers, Pentatonix, and more.

Each winning experience includes airfare, hotel accommodations, tickets to see the artist in concert, and best of all—a meet-and-greet with the artists themselves. Prime members in the U.S. can participate by listening to a song from select Prime Music playlists, each associated with a prize.

There will be similar Prime Music Experiences taking place for Amazon customers in the U.K., Germany, Austria, and Japan.
