Like most people, your relationship with Amazon is probably best described as complicated. Most of us are less than happy about its dominance, and its effect on smaller, independent retailers. But then there's no denying it is mighty good at getting shiny new devices through your door in double-quick time, and at knockdown prices to boot.
So you can't ignore the company's two-day shopping extravaganza, Amazon Prime Day, especially if you're currently feeling the pinch and are in need of a bargain. A wide-range of electronics are sure to be on offer, including speakers, TVs, headphones and more.
But there's a catch. The clue is in the name: you do need to be an Amazon Prime member to take advantage of any of these savings. And that costs money. It's a pretty good deal generally, with Amazon Prime offering fast, free delivery, and access to Prime Music and Prime Video, but nevertheless if you haven't signed-up, you won't be able to take advantage of the Prime Day deals.
However, there is a way to take advantage of Prime Day without spending a penny on Prime membership: sign-up for the Prime free trial. Thanks to the 30-day free trial, you can sign up now and take advantage of the Prime Day sales. Once you've filled your boots, and perhaps your online shopping basket, you can cancel your membership (with nothing to pay) and ride off into the sunset with a bundle of discounted products under your arm... Just don't tell Amazon we told you.
Get unlimited one-day delivery on millions of items, free access to Prime Video and Prime Music, access to a rotating selection of eBooks and magazines, and access to Prime Day deals.
