Amazon Prime Day – Is It Bigger Than Lowes Black Friday?
Amazon Prime Day is almost here. Now in its seventh year, Amazon’s online sales event will be on June 21st and 22nd.
In just a short few years, Amazon’s annual global shopping event, Prime Day, has cemented itself as a major, can’t-be-missed retail sales holiday.
What is Amazon Prime?
Amazon Prime is an annual membership program for $119 a year that offers customers unlimited Free Two-Day Shipping on more than 20 million items with unlimited Free Same-Day Delivery on more than a million items.
Fast and convenient shipping, free video and music streaming, and access to Amazon Prime Day deals on June 21 and 22 are part of the perks of Amazon Prime. First-time subscribers can sign up for a 30-day trial to experience all the benefits before having to pay for a subscription. Doing so will get you free shipping on Amazon’s Primes daily deals and try out other features of Prime before you decide if you want to pay for it.
You also have access to stream tens of thousands of movies and TV episodes, more than one million songs and hundreds of stations with Prime Music. Enjoy free unlimited photo storage in Amazon Cloud Drive with Prime Photos and access to more than 800,000 books with Kindle Owners’ Lending Library.

Amazon Prime Day – Bigger Than Lowes Black Friday?
Whether or not you’re a regular customer of Amazon.com, you may want to check out Amazon Prime. Need a last minute gift? You can’t get everything at Lowes or Home Depot. With FREE Two-Day Shipping from Amazon Prime, your shopping problems are solved.
Everyone can take advantage of the discounts and free shipping too! But to take advantage of the savings, you have a little work to do. Namely, signing up for a free 30 day trial of Amazon Prime.
With Amazon Prime, shoppers gain access to deals and pay nothing for the privilege. On July 12th, Amazon will offer Prime members deals as often as every five minutes. That compares with a new deal every 10 minutes during last year’s Prime Day. The sale will include more than 100,000 deals spanning nearly all departments from televisions to tools and from shoes to vitamins.
Not happy with Amazon Prime?
Simply cancel and owe nothing.
The catch: Shoppers must have an Amazon Prime membership to take advantage of these deals. Prime members get access to unlimited free two-day shipping, as well as access to free movies and TV shows to stream on Prime Instant Video, among other benefits. But if you don’t have a membership, you can still sign up for a 30-day free trial of the service to get Prime Day deals.
Sign up and then cancel the service?
That’s not what Amazon is betting on happening. Though Amazon hasn’t come out and stated it, this is simply a marketing event to get new members in the door. Like most retail businesses, Amazon knows that members spend more.
Prime members on average, spend about $1500 per year, versus only $625 per year for shoppers who aren’t Prime members. The extra cost of free shipping and digital video that members enjoy is offset by the annual membership fee and of course increased sales volume.
Prime deals will be offered across different categories, including electronics, toys, movies, clothing, patio, lawn and garden, sports and outdoor items and more. You will also find deals on back-to-school shopping, college logo merchandise and pro sports gear.
Other Retailers and Prime Day
While other retailers don’t take part in Prime Day, expect to see large retailers like Lowes, Home Depot, Menards, Walmart, Target, and Best Buy offer sales with special pricing during and around the Prime Day.
However, the number of these competitor deals are still up in the air. With this event usually happening in July, this years mid October event puts us very close to the deals that will be offered for Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
Walmart’s “Deals for Days 2021” Mega-Sale” leapfrogs Prime Day by starting June 20th and will last until June 23rd. Target’s ‘Deal Days’ event matches Prime Day’s dates and Target will offer early-bird specials plus exclusive discounts for Target Circle members.
Even though I work at Lowes, yeah, sometimes I need to shop the competition. You can’t get everything at Lowes. I will be shopping Amazon that day too!
