Midnight tonight (PST) starts the deals flowing for Amazon Prime Day on July 12. We are members of Amazon Prime for many reasons, but the top one is convenience of getting the free shipping along with a record of household items on my account that I reorder. We also use the Amazon Prime Now app for items we need the same day. It is summer and we were just thinking of getting our kids some Kindle Paperwhites to take on vacation which are on sale along with many other items on Amazon. I received a press release with a sample of items on sale. Because it is late and I just received this information, I am going to post it straight from the press release. Please share if you found other hot deals on Amazon Prime Day!
“SEATTLE–(BUSINESS WIRE)–July 11, 2016–(NASDAQ: AMZN) — Beginning at midnight PT on Tuesday, July 12, Prime members in the U.S. can shop thousands of deals from across nearly every category available on Amazon.
