Not just the big brands
It’s not just Amazon and big brand names that profit from this new-found cyber holiday. Small businesses also have some awesome offerings to share through the online marketplace.
Check out Amazon Storefronts for unique products from small to mid-size businesses. Amazon Launchpad, a platform highlighting startup ventures, also offers a wide variety of brand new buys.
Early access to bargain buys
With each passing year, Prime day draws in bigger numbers. To attract new crowds, Amazon selectively reveals new offerings in the days preceding the big event.
Want to get the inside scoop before everyone else? Take a minute to download Amazon’s free app. When you type “sneak peek” into the search bar, you’ll find additional savings not yet advertised online!
Obviously, Prime day savings draw a lot of browsers to Amazon. However, competing businesses don’t want to miss out one the influx of online shoppers. With a little bit of extra research, you might be able to find an offer that’s even better than Amazon’s listings.
As Prime day garners a bigger following, more businesses have started to offer coinciding summer blow out sales. Most notably, Target will be hosting a concurrent mega-sale for those looking to stock up on basics like SD cards. Be sure to also look into limited time specials from the likes of B&H and Adorama.
Not on Prime? No Problem
Before you get too excited, keep in mind that to cash in on these deals you’ll have to buy into an Amazon Prime subscription. However, if you don’t want to shell out the $119 standard annual cost, there is a work around.
For 30 days, you can sign up for a free trial and enjoy all of the benefits that come with a membership. Even if you opt out after the sales end, you won’t be charged any additional fees.
If you do find that you enjoy the service, however, there are some valuable benefits to be had. Photographers, in particular, can enjoy the perk of unlimited image storage space through Amazon Photos.
Amazon Prime Day 2020 is predicted to be later towards the end of the year of 2020. Normally, Amazon Prime Days take place in the middle of July, but this year, due to the current circumstances, Prime Days will be postponed.
It’s like Black Friday, just better (Amazon promises more deals than ever in the history of online sales).
You need to sign up for a Prime Membership. Get the Amazon Prime Membership before the Prime Days start! Then you can browse the electronics category on Amazon.com and look for cameras, lenses, and other accessories deals.
