Amazon Prime Day began on July 15, 2015, as a means to celebrate Amazon’s 20th anniversary. Prime Day sale was such a success that Amazon decided to make it an annual event and that brings us to Prime Day predictions for 2017! As per usual, Amazon Prime Day is a global event that is exclusively for Prime members. Amazon has no limits on their sales so you’ll find deep discounts in nearly every category. Read on for more details below.
When is Prime Day 2017?
There is no official set date for Prime Day but based on the last two years, we’re going to safely guess that Amazon Prime Day will likely fall somewhere between July 11 or July 12 this year. Prime Day deals will go live at 12 am midnight EST which means west coast shoppers can access deals the night before at 9 pm. Amazon typically announce their official Prime Day and early access deals toward the end of June or early July so stay tuned and we'll keep you updated on of the latest Prime Day details!
What Kind of Amazon Prime Deals & Discounts to Expect
Amazon Prime Visa Rewards or Amazon Visa Rewards Card
Amazon has quite the variety pack when it comes to coupon codes and discounts on their famed Prime Day. Similar to last year, we can expect Amazon to offer up to $30 off with a coupon code exclusively or Amazon Rewards Visa credit card holders.
Consider applying for an Amazon Prime Visa Rewards card if you're planning to make some big purchases on Amazon Prime Day! Amazon recently gave their Rewards card a boost and now, all cardholders are eligible for 5% cashback on purchases from Amazon and best of all… no annual or foreign transaction fees for all! Plus, once approved, you’ll get a free $70 Amazon.com gift card. Click here for more details.
Please note that 5% cashback is for their Amazon Prime Visa Rewards card only. Non-Prime member may still apply for the Amazon Visa Rewards at 3% cashback.
Amazon Prime Now
As you know, other Prime features include Amazon Prime Now and the company will likely bring back $10 off Prime Day discount code for those ordering in July (this discount usually last the month).
