Last year, Amazon held their first ever "Prime Day" which was exclusive to Amazon Prime members, and offered a ton of sales and deals, around the world. There was a lot of hype surrounding Prime Day last year, but it ultimately was a let down for a lot of people. Especially considering Amazon touted it as being bigger than Black Friday and Cyber Monday. This year, Amazon is doing Prime Day again, and it's set for July 12th - just under two weeks away. The company says there will be more inventory, and over 100,000 products on sale. Amazon hasn't said specifically what will be on sale, but did say that there will be double the TV units available, when compared to Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
Before Prime Day gets started on July 12th, Amazon is doing a Countdown Deals from July 5th through the 11th. These are deals that will be available each day up until Prime Day in the US. On July 5th, there will be a 32-inch TV bundle with a Fire TV stick for just $119.99. Now this likely won't be a 4K TV (if it was, they would be touting it), but even for a 1080p TV, this is a pretty good price. Amazon will also have deals on gadgets, TV series, blockbuster movies, and so much more. Of course, Amazon's own products will be on sale during that time frame as well, including the Amazon Fire TV, Fire TV Stick, Fire Tablet, Amazon Echo and others.
Prime Day will be taking place in the US, Spain, Italy, France, Germany, Japan, UK, Canada, Austria and Belgium. Remember that you do need to be an Amazon Prime member to be able to get these discounts. Luckily you can sign up for a free 30-day trial of Amazon Prime and still be eligible for Amazon's Prime Day 2016. Amazon Prime costs just $99/year or $49/year if you're a student. With Amazon Prime you'll get free two-day shipping, as well as access to tons of movies and TV shows, unlimited cloud storage space for photos and Amazon Prime Music. For just $99/year, it's definitely worth signing up for.
