Amazon customers are buzzing about what the online retailing giant is calling their “Prime Day” in a new press release, titled “Step Aside Black Friday — Meet Prime Day” in the Amazon media room. “Prime Day” is a way that Amazon is celebrating their 20th birthday by giving “more deals than Black Friday” to their Amazon Prime members.
“On Wednesday, July 15, new and existing members in the U.S. will find deals starting at midnight, with new deals starting as often as every ten minutes. They can shop thousands of Lightning Deals, seven popular Deals of the Day and receive unlimited fast, free shipping.”
Those who are Amazon Prime members can still get in on the “Prime Day” deals, explains the retailer, by signing up for a 30-day free trial of Amazon Prime by visiting their Prime Day page for more details. On that page, Amazon explains that their “Prime Day” will only last for one day — but that Amazon Prime customers can find a plethora of deals in a variety of categories. There’s even a video on the Amazon page describing the whole “Prime Day” plan.
“Prime Day is a one-day shopping event on July 15, 2015, with more deals than Black Friday. Prime members can shop exclusive deals from electronics, toys, video games, movies, clothing, patio, lawn and garden, sports and outdoor items and more.”
In addition to their “Prime Day,” Amazon describes a #PrimeLiving photo contest, as well.
However, it’s Amazon’s new “Prime Day” that will bury Black Friday, reports CNN Money — and plenty of other news publications looking forward to the big sales event. The real question is: Just what kinds of deals will Amazon really offer on “Prime Day” and will there be deeper discounts and more discounts than Black Friday?
That’s what TechCrunch asked Amazon about their “Prime Day” when the website emailed Amazon for further details about the sales customers can expect. Stay tuned to see if Amazon will leak more details about their big sales day prior to July 15 rolling around.
As reported by the Inquisitr, Amazon has had its share of buzz and big deals — even if some were in error. When a bunch of products sold for only one penny due to a “Repricer Express” glitch, Amazon sellers threatened a lawsuit against the popular web retailer. Since Amazon’s new “Prime Day” is just for their Amazon Prime members, no doubt plenty of Amazon customers who aren’t yet Prime members will be willing to give the 30-day free trial a try just to get in on the “Prime Day” deals.
