The Countdown to Prime Day is on!

The day is coming! Amazon Prime Day – a day when Amazon offers thousands upon thousands of deals, as quickly as one every five minutes – is set for July 17th. Actually, it starts at noon on July 16th and runs through midnight on July 17th. These are exclusively for Amazon Prime members so if you aren’t a member yet, now is the time to sign up for a free 30-day trial so you don’t miss out on the deals. 

As an Amazon Prime member you will get free 2-day shipping on nearly every item offered or fulfilled by Amazon, Prime Video, Prime Music, release date delivery of thousands of items, Amazon Family which offers 20% off diapers, and so many more things are included! 

The Prime Day deals will start at noon on July 16th and end at 11:59pm on July 17th. These times will likely be Pacific because of Amazon’s headquarters location in Seattle.

Are the deals on Prime Day worth it?

Last year we got a three pack of Kindle Fire HD 8″ for $120 – or $40 each. That’s half the price they normally are! We love these tablets for reading books, using at breakfast for our family devotional reading, and letting the kids play games. Saving $120 on those made the whole day worth it!
