The best browser extensions to make the most of Prime Day at AmazonJuly 11th, 2017
Amazon Prime shoppers have been looking forward to the third annual “Prime Day”, which offers amazing new deals for thousands of Amazon’s products and items every 5 minutes, and runs for a whopping 30 hours starting on July 11th.
What is Prime Day?
Amazon once again promised its Prime customers better and more deals then on Black Friday, and it looks like the e-commerce giant kept its promise this year too! Whilst this global shopping event is open only to Prime members of Amazon (those who spend $99 a year, or at least $10.99 per month and have signed up for a Prime membership), there are options to registering for a free trial, or to get access if you are a student with an .edu address.
The Prime day event last year was the biggest day for Amazon ever with an estimated 525$ million earned from sales for the day.
