Are you getting ready for Amazon’s Prime Day? If not, maybe you should be. This shopping holiday is the biggest thing since retailers invented Black Friday sales.
Prime Day 2019 will start on Monday, July 15 at 3 a.m. Atlanta time. It will come to a close at 2:59 a.m. on Tuesday, July 16th. This means 48 hours of non-stop deals. As often as every five minutes, new deals will be posted.
And this year, there’s a new way to save:
Amazon Prime members who spend $10 at Whole Food Market between now and July 16 will receive a $10 credit to use on Amazon for Prime Day.
Here’s how to get the $10 Amazon credit:
- Be a Prime member
- Shop at Whole Foods between now and Prime Day (and spend at least $10)
- At checkout, bring up your Prime code on your phone, in either the Amazon app or Whole Foods app (or have the cashier key in your phone number)
- Get the $10 credit added to your Amazon Prime account.
Not a Prime Member? You can sign up for a FREE 30-day trial and do all the shopping you want.
If you sign up for the free trial, we suggest immediately setting the auto-renewal option to OFF, so you don’t accidentally forget to cancel.
College students — get a 6-month FREE trial of Prime. After your trial, Prime Student is just $6.49 per month. There is no contract and you can cancel anytime.
