Prime Day is Amazon’s yearly promotion of its subscription service, which has many perks. Those perks include exclusive deals, free 2-day shipping on many products, and access to streaming services. This year, it starts at midnight (PT) on July 11-12.
The yearly Prime Day promotion is the perfect time to sign up for Prime if you’re not already. It’s also a great day to get some fantastic deals on cool products. New members even get a 30-day free trial.
Where to Shop Prime Day Deals
The folks at Amazon know you’re busy, so you don’t need to be in front of your computer to take advantage of the deals. Instead, Alexa-compatible devices will help you shop on verbal commands. And don’t forget you can use the Amazon apps. Also, if you use smile.amazon.com to place your order, you can share the love with your favorite non-profit – that works every day, not just on Prime Day.

Video Calling (Amazon Show)
I’m particularly excited about ordering this since my brother just moved to Florida, but don’t tell him – it’s a surprise! You may be familiar with Skype, FaceTime, or other video calling apps. But most require you to touch a keypad to initiate the call. With Echo Show, you get the power of video calling and amazing screen quality combined with Alexa’s voice commands. That means you can video-visit your friends and family without ever picking up a device.
