Amazon Prime Day Deals on Kitchen Gadgets

This Wednesday, July 15th, 2015, Amazon is running its first ever Amazon Prime Day. They’ll be offering great deals all day long, and none of the details have been announced yet.

On July 15th, click here to see all the Prime Day Kitchen Deals — I hope they’ll have some amazing specials on kitchen gadgets!

If you’re not a Prime member yet, sign up for the free 30-day trial today, so you can take advantage of the exclusive sale prices. Later, if you decide that the Prime membership doesn’t meet your needs, you can cancel, before the end of the 30-day trial.

Amazon Prime Benefits

Aside from Amazon Prime Day, what benefits do you get when you join Amazon Prime?

Free Two-Day Shipping — You get unlimited deliveries with no minimum order size. (Without Prime, you need to spend $35 or more to get free shipping.) That could save you from overspending, if you sometimes add items you don’t really need, just to get to the $35 minimum.

Unlimited Movies and TV – Watch blockbuster films and popular TV shows on your TV, laptop, Fire TV, Kindle Fire, or your choice of more than 600 devices. You can cancel your other movie and TV subscriptions, to save the money you spend on them.

Music Streaming – Enjoy unlimited, ad-free access to over a million songs and hundreds of custom-built playlists

Free eBooks – Borrow one book a month, with no due date, from the Kindle Owner’s Lending Library, where over 500,000 books are stored. Choose fiction or non-fiction, New York Times best sellers or lost classics, and much more.

Early Access – Get 30-minute early access to some of the Lightning Deals on Amazon, and shop new events on 30 minutes before other customers. Don’t miss out on limited quantity deals because you don’t have a Prime membership!
