What is Amazon Prime Day?

Oh hi, you must be new. Here is the TL;DR version of Amazon’s biggest sale event.  Amazon Prime Day began on July 15, 2015, when Amazon initially launched this event to celebrate their 20th anniversary. Due to the success of Prime Day for both Amazon sellers and buyers, Amazon decided to make it an annual sale party. Amazon Prime Day has since become a well-known marketing success (think Cyber Monday and Green Monday) so many retailers have hopped aboard to offer their own hot deals and sales on Prime Day as well.

This might seem obvious but as you may have guessed, Amazon Prime Day is a global shopping event reserved for Amazon Prime members only. Of course, if you are not a Prime member, you can still access plenty of site wide savings at (Just, you know, not the Prime Day stuff).

I wanna be the very best like no one ever was. Couponing is my real test, to cut them is my cause. I will travel across the land, searching far and wide. Each store to understand, the discounts that's inside.
