Tomorrow, July 15th, is Amazon Prime Day and I’m excited! You should be too. Prime members will get a shot at some great deals that are supposed to be as good as those on Black Friday but without the shoving and pushing and long lines at the checkout register. Get your wish lists ready to checkout this sale with deep discounts on all kinds of items including electronics and household goods. I hear the Kindle Fire HD 7″ ( which I own and LOVE) and possibly other Kindles will have fantastic discounts making this the best time to grab one and get those heavy books and newspapers out of your RV. The Fire Stick will be on sale too. Personally, I’m hoping to see a deal on GPS units since mine has gotten pretty out of date and I would like to have some more options on it. If you are looking for a countertop oven, there’s a good chance there will be a deal on those too. Let’s cross our fingers for some cool RV stuff to be part of the sale. Pay attention to your email and Amazon tomorrow and don’t miss out on this.
If you are not a Prime member, now is a great time to try it out for free for 30 days if only to get in on this. At $99 a year, I have found it well worth it just for the free, faster shipping let alone all the other benefits. As an RVer that moves around a fair amount, I have had no problem having them deliver to my mail service who then ships it to me wherever I am. Some campgrounds will also accept deliveries. Currently I have a second mailbox close to where I am working that is just for package deliveries.
Other retailers have also jumped in to bring us Black Friday in July. Walmart will be having a great sale online as well. They have lowered their free shipping threshold to only $35 and their Ship-To-Store option has always been free anyway not to mention extremely convenient for RVers. I know I have used it a lot due to its ease of use and the fact they will hold my packages for two weeks for me to make it pretty simple to time my store visits with my job and moves.
Target and Best Buy have thrown their hats into the ring with some special deals of their own on their websites. Woohoo! It really is going to be Christmas in July this year and not just on TV.
Note: I am an affiliate of Amazon and Walmart but I’m also a happy shopper and camper. 🙂
