Prime Day is Amazon’s biggest annual sales event. It usually features huge discounts among some of the biggest brand names, and is the perfect time to get some early Christmas shopping done.

Amazon Prime Day comes off the back of the Big Smile Sale, which ran in March this year, and the Prime Big Deal Days event from October 2023.

To get the most out of the sales, you’ll need to be an Amazon Prime member. If you don’t already have a membership and you’ve never signed up before, you’re eligible for a 30-day free trial of the service. If you don’t shop on Amazon that often, you can cancel your subscription after the sale ends, so you won’t need to worry about paying for another service.

If you want to keep your Amazon Prime membership, it’ll set you back $9.99 per month, or $79 for a year. Honestly, I think it’s worth having an Amazon Prime membership for the free one-day shipping service the company offers. You can sign up for an Amazon Prime membership here.
