Amazon Prime Day 2019, What is Prime Day? How Does it Work? How do I ship from Amazon to Kenya?
Amazon Prime Day has become one of the most popular days for online shopping – Amazon said last year’s “Prime Day” was its biggest sales day in history, topping Cyber Monday and Black Friday. Prime Day’s popularity has even inspired other retailers to compete with their own “Black Friday in July” deals. Whether you’ve never heard of Prime Day, or you’re already making online shopping plans, here are key things you should know.
Amazon Prime Day 2019 is set to have mind blowing deals
What is Prime Day?
Every year, Amazon Prime subscribers get exclusive offers on countless products for what used to be 24 hours only. This year is the longest Prime Day yet, at 48 hours.
When is Prime Day?
This year, Prime Day starts on Monday, July 15, at midnight Pacific Time and continues for 48 hours until 11:59 p.m. PT on Tuesday, July 16. This translates to 10:00am (GMT+3) in Kenyan time. Meaning as a Kenyan you have advantage to shop for the deals when the sales open because you don’t have to stay awake up to midnight or wake up to shop. For more, Amazon has a guide to how Prime Day works.
How does it work? Do I need to buy an Amazon Prime membership?
To participate in Prime Day you need to have an Amazon Prime subscription, but, you can sign up for a 30-day free trial to access all of the limited-time deals – and regular benefits of Prime – if you aren’t already a member. Plus, if you’re a student, you can get a 6-month free trial.
Amazon Prime is a paid service that offers unlimited two-day shipping on millions of items, as well as access to Prime Video streaming and Amazon Music. Amazon Prime costs $12.99 a month after your 30-day free trial, and you can cancel any time – you can find out more about it here. If you’re a student, it’s $6.49 each month after your 6-month free trial (click here for more information about student plans).
What can I buy on Prime Day?
Most Prime Day deals will be kept secret until the 15th, but last year’s best sellers are good indicators of what you can expect. There are going to be a lot of electronics on sale. You can especially count on Amazon electronics offering deals – the best-selling item overall worldwide in 2018 was the Fire TV Stick 4K. Another department sure to have deep discounts is kitchen appliances. The Instant Pot sold more than any other product in the United States in 2018 – unsurprising when you consider the well reviewed electric pressure cooker temporarily dropped in price from $100 to $60. In the United Kingdom, this Bosch Cordless Drill was the top purchase. But, there were also less conventional products – an extremely popular deal in 2018 was 50 percent off 23andMe DNA Testing Kits.
With Prime Day expanding in length and growing in popularity, it’s likely there will be even more deals added.
