Sneak Peek: Amazon Prime Day Deals

Amazon Prime Day Deals Are Worth Exploring

In July 2015, Amazon celebrated its 20th birthday by launching Amazon Prime Day. Exclusively for Prime members, it offers deals from national brands and small businesses that are not available during the rest of the year.

The event has grown through the years. So much so that two days have recently been devoted to it. This year the event runs July 12 and 13 in more than 20 countries.

In 2021, more than 2 million deals were offered in a wide variety of categories. More than 250 million items were purchased worldwide and third-party sellers enjoyed their biggest two-day sales ever.

As you may know, 4Patriots recently began selling its products on Amazon. As you’d expect, we have a few Prime Day deals going as well. More on that in a moment.

Every Item You Can Think Of

Last year customers stocked up on a number of electronic items including remotes and streaming media players. As well as tools, beauty, nutrition, baby care, apparel and household products. Plus robot vacuums, coffee makers, vitamins and toiletries.

Many took advantage of back-to-school sales. They purchased more than 600,000 backpacks, 1 million laptops, 240,000 notebooks, and 220,000 Crayola products.

Music was another big seller for the 2021 Amazon Prime Day. As a result, more folks signed up for Amazon Music Unlimited globally than on any previous Prime Day.

According to Adobe Analytics, online retail sales in the U.S. were over $11 billion during last year’s Prime Day event. 

This year, among the many sales items, are Ring Video Doorbells, Amazon Eero 6 WiFi routers, Apple watches, Fire TVs and Kindle e-readers. As well as clothing, exercise equipment, electronics and pretty much everything else you can think of. 

Look for Credits You Can Use

In addition to the many items that are on sale, Amazon Prime Day also includes a wide variety of credits.

For example, when you spend at least $75 on select Procter & Gamble home and personal care items, you get a $20 credit on Amazon. (That credit must be spent on Prime Day.)

Those who collect four “digital stamps'' receive a $10 credit on Amazon items. The stamps involve making a $5+ purchase on a Prime-eligible item, streaming a show on Prime Video, streaming a song on Prime Music and borrowing an e-book on Prime Reading.  

If you purchase a movie ticket for Elvis via Atom, you’ll receive a $5 Amazon credit for Prime Day.

People can also acquire a $200 Amazon gift card if they are approved for an Amazon Prime Rewards Visa card. The card offers earnings of 6% back at Amazon and Whole Foods during Prime Day and 5% back year-round.

Be Ready… and Cautious

As with everything, there are some cautions you’ll want to consider before taking part in Amazon Prime Day.

For example, because hundreds of millions of people are aware of these Prime Day sales, some of these items sell out very quickly. It pays to prepare by figuring out exactly what you want and grabbing those items as quickly as possible.

While you’re preparing, it’s a good idea to price check the items you’re interested in. Just because an item is, say, $20 off, doesn’t mean it’s worth that sales price. You might be able to find a similar item from a different company at a better price.

Checking back periodically throughout the two days is also recommended. New deals pop up all the time. If you’re not a Prime member but are thinking about becoming one, take advantage of the 30-day free trial.   

Determine the Difference Between Needs & Wants 

Now, just because an item is on sale ‚Äď even when the price is dramatically reduced ‚Äď doesn‚Äôt make it a wise purchase.

Inflation has been taking a big bite out of our budgets these days. I’m sure I don’t have to tell you that. 

Seems like everything is more expensive now. And that means we have fewer dollars for things like entertainment.

The key is figuring out the difference between needs and wants. Of course, this is always true. But it’s especially important during these inflationary times in which we live.

    Patriots:
    Thank you for supplying all these survival items. I have purchased some, and would like to purchase more, but I am a picky eater, for example, growing up not eating rice as a staple. Your kits have a lot of rice in them. I’m an oatmeal person. I would love to be able to swap out items, or purchase individual items.
    As sampler pack would be excellent for people to try the different foods and see how they can be adapted to their taste and ability.
    I’ll keep hoping and wishing,
    M Clark

    Hi, I did not realize that 4Patriots was selling their items on Amazon. I have to say, I am not a big fan. I guess the enticement of extra sales you can get from there is just too much to keep you away.

    Thanks,
    Susan Rarick

    **Recently bought 2 Solanterns…wish they weren’t made in China.
