Who Can Shop During Amazon Prime Day 2019?
Amazon Prime Day 2019 is the company’s thank you to its Prime members, so the sale and all of its deals are exclusive to those with active Prime status on their accounts. Amazon Prime membership costs $119 a year or $12.99 for a monthly sign up. You can also sign up for a free 30-day trial and cancel before it expires unless you already did this trick in the past 12 months.
Don’t fret if you have to pay to play, especially if you plan on buying a lot of stuff during the Amazon Prime Day 2019 sale. The discounts and the free shipping for this event alone should be enough to cover the $12.99 you have to fork out to get a 30-day membership.

Does Amazon Prime Day 2019 Offer the Best Deals of the Whole Year?
Black Friday is a much bigger and more popular sale event than Amazon Prime Day, but that’s a few months away from today. The best way to utilize Amazon Prime Day 2019 is to shop for items that you will need in the coming weeks such as school supplies or college essentials. There is also a lot of offers for summertime products such as camping gear, sports equipment, and our favorite; gaming products such as monitors and peripherals.
Amazon also doesn’t offer price adjustments for items bought on Prime Day nor will it price-match products that get discounts during the event that were bought ahead of time. You can, however, return the item and rebuy it the Amazon Prime Day 2019 discounted SRP. Some deals also have their prices pumped up to their original listings, giving you the impression that you are getting a discount but you are actually paying more than the current worth.
One way to check is to go to CamelCamelCamel.com which tracks price trends from the day the specific item first went on sale on Amazon. You can check the lowest, average, and highest prices to know the current cost of the product and how much Amazon Prime Day 2019 is shaving off. You can also consult your orders archive to see how much you paid for an item if its a repeat buy.
How Fast Will Amazon Prime Purchases Ship?

Amazon’s delivery network is also expanding to small-business delivery contractors on the local scale, to help get packages to their buyers quicker, and cheaper. This aspect of the company helps to push its 1-day shipping agenda, which, according to Amazon, is available on more than 10 million products sold on the website.
