Prime day is FAST approaching! I’m pretty sure when this article is out after procrastinating for WEEKS, it’s probably today.

What’s Amazon Prime Day?

Prime day is an exclusive event held by Amazon for Amazon Prime members. Every year, members have an opportunity to snag incredible deals throughout the storefront. Think of it as Black Friday but in June! Members can buy clothing, food, gaming consoles, appliances, and electronics for drastically reduced prices. Unfortunately, non-prime members do not have access to this event, and there are rarely any deals that they can pick up, so I recommend purchasing a subscription or signing up for a free trial to take part in the savings.

For this year, Prime Day officially starts June 21st at 3 AM and continues for 48hours! It’s perfect for us right now as non-essential stores are closed because of lockdown restrictions placed to help try to curve the Covid-19 spike in Trinidad and Tobago.

Don’t have access to a credit card or don’t want to deal with shipping couriers?

Contact 8Bit Supply Company on Instagram and they’ll sort out everything for you! You’ll even get to partake in prime day deals!

Alright. Let’s get into the deals!!

Tips and Tricks for Prime Day

Losing out on a great deal sucks. It’s especially worst to see the same item you want being sold locally at an extreme markup. Many items are in high demand so you need to be extra prepared for Prime Day. Some ways to get ready are to fill your shopping cart ahead of the sales so you can monitor price fluctuations as well as the stock of items. Make sure to also join waitlists for items that are sold out so you can be the first to be notified when they are back! The Amazon app also allows you to “Watch This Deal” so you can receive push notifications on any items you want!
