Amazon will compete with the largest shopping day, Black Friday next week, upon introducing Prime Day to celebrate 20 successful business years.
It was 90 years ago when holiday shopping used to officially take off the Friday that followed Thanksgiving, giving the biggest shopping event of the year the name Black Friday.
Amazon, the e-commerce giant has helped cement Black Friday as the biggest shopping event brick by brick, not only in the U.S., but around the world.
Now, Amazon expects to dethrone Black Friday by introducing Prime Day, an international shopping day that boasts far more deals while marking Amazon’s 20th year on the market.
Prime Day will target Prime members in Austria, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, as well as Japan, Spain, U.K. and the U.S..
On July 15th when Prime Day starts, the U.S. Prime members, as well as the others will be able to browse through deals as soon as midnight. New deals will be introduced every ten minutes. Lightning Deals will also feature on the website, as will seven Deals of the Day.
Worried about shipping? It will be free and fast and unlimited.
Greg Greeley, the VP of Amazon Prime stated:
“Prime Day is a one-day event filled with more deals than Black Friday, exclusively for Prime members around the globe. Members tell us every day how much they love Prime and we will keep making it better”.
At the same time, he added:
“If you’re not already a Prime member, you’ll want to join so you don’t miss out on one of the biggest deals extravaganza in the world.”
Indeed, for those who would like to benefit from the fantastic offers Prime Day has to offer, there is still time. On the website, everyone can subscribe for a free 30-day trial.
On July 15th, Amazon’s Prime Day will basically meet any wishes. From toys to clothing to entertainment, to gadgets and electronics to summer adventure gear and home decorations, there will be a deal for everyone. The event is open for purchases across any device, from desktops to tablets and smartphones.
Amazon Prime is Amazon’s program coming with a yearly membership fee of 99 dollars. While a few are reticent to paying the price tag, Amazon Prime is worthed. Unlimited Free Two Day-Shipping ranging across 20 million products from all Amazon’s categories is one of the advantageous features.
Think unlimited Free Same-Day Delivery spanning over one million items and fourteen metropolitan areas. Add the unlimited streaming of your favorite TV series and movies, songs, playlists, Prime Music stations.
Check out the Lightning Deals that pop up all year long or Google’s rival Amazon Cloud Drive Photo Storage, also unlimited.
All these features are at least worth checking out for the free 30-day trial period. Prime was the key factor in turning Amazon’s profit around. In 2014, Q4, it was Prime that greatly factored in the 214 million dollars profit.
Thus, Prime Day is not only Amazon’s celebratory event, but a celebration of Prime as well.
