Amazon's 20th birthday is next week and Prime members can expect even more Blu-ray deals than Black Friday.
On Wednesday, July 15, Amazon will be turning 20 and to celebrate the occasion the mega online retailer will be launching 'Prime Day' -- a global shopping event that will dwarf Black Friday. The deals will be available exclusively for Prime members in the U.S., U.K., Spain, Japan, Italy, Germany, France, Canada and Austria beginning at midnight with new offers as often as every 10 minutes. Prime members can also enjoy unlimited fast and the free shipping.
“Prime Day is a one-day only 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,” said Greg Greeley, Vice President Amazon Prime. “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 extravaganzas in the world.”
Amazon Prime is an annual membership program for $99 a year that offers customers unlimited Free Two-Day Shipping on more than 20 million items across all categories, unlimited Free Same-Day Delivery on more than a million items in 14 metro areas, unlimited streaming of tens of thousands of movies and TV episodes, more than one million songs, more than one thousand playlists and hundreds of stations with Prime Music, early access to select Lightning Deals all year long, free secure, unlimited photo storage in Amazon Cloud Drive with Prime Photos and access to more than 800,000 books to borrow with the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library. In addition, Prime members in Atlanta, Austin, Baltimore, Brooklyn, Dallas, Manhattan, Miami, and London receive one and two hour delivery on a selection of tens of thousands of everyday essentials with the dedicated Prime Now mobile app.
