As thousands of shoppers head online to pick up some pre-Christmas shopping bargains, we look at who can benefit from Amazon Prime Day deals.
For some, Amazon Prime Day is more exciting than the January sales or even the best Black Friday deals. But are Amazon Prime Day deals only for members?
How easy is it for those of us, like myself, who have never experienced an Amazon Prime Day and its deals frenzy to give it a go? After all it's less stress than going shopping itself, right? Especially in 2020 when popping into a physical store has never been less appealing...
Well, before you get started, here's what you need to know - and more importantly, if you're not a member - how you can bag the same deals without forking out on monthly membership.
Are Amazon Prime Day deals only for members?
Yes Amazon Prime Day deals are only available to Prime subscribers - but you can sign up quickly and easily to take part. And no need to worry about it costing you, as with a free 30 day free trial you can cancel it with no obligation and still take part in the event.
How to sign up to Amazon Prime
The huge two-day event, which takes place on 13th and 14th October - ending at 23.59pm on the 14th - features hundreds of the best prime day deals on everything from electronics, beauty advent calendars and toys to jewellery, homeware and gifts.
Even though the big sale day has begun, there's still plenty of deals to be had as the second day is not over yet - but hurry to sign up now.
Once you've signed up to Amazon Prime - having taken advantage of the free 30-day membership, you'd be mad not to. You can then shop to your heart's content knowing you will get the goods at the reduced prices.

What happens after the free 30-day trial?
But if you're wondering what will happen when the 30-day free trail comes to an end, there are two options - either cancel your membership. Or after your free trial, if you decide you like the all-year-round membership offers like free premium delivery or Amazon Originals, Movies and TV shows, then Amazon Prime is just £7.99/month - and is a membership you can cancel at anytime.
So if you just want it to take the pressure out of shopping in the run up to Christmas then so be it or if you're tempted to stick around until after the January sales then that's fine too.
And if you simply want to use the free 30-days membership for the latest Amazon Prime Day deals, then no one is going to judge - after all you'd be a fool not to! And it saves you cash to buy yourself an extra treat for shopping so savvy...what are you waiting for? Check out the deals now...
