The countdown is on for Amazon Prime Day

It’s almost as big as Black Friday and once again the deals last over two days! Amazon announced that Prime Day will be October 13 & 14.  If you haven’t heard, Amazon Prime Day is exclusively for Prime members. According to their press release, shoppers will have over one million deals to choose from.

What’s new this year? Amazon is increasing its support for small businesses with an investment of $100 million in promotional programs.

– Look for the Curated Small Business Collections based on product category, business location and owner profiles.

– To add even more incentive, Amazon offers a $10 credit to Prime members who spend $10 on items sold by select small businesses in Amazon’s store. Find that deal now!

– Small businesses will be featured on Amazon Live Service in the Small Business Showcase.

Of course you’ll find deals throughout the online retail giant right now up until Prime Day with a ton of savings on Amazon products and services.

For everyone who doesn’t have Amazon Prime, you can sign up for a 30 day free trial. After that, you will be charged $12.99 a month and you can cancel anytime. Students and those with a valid EBT/Medicaid card can sign up for Amazon Prime at a reduced monthly rate.
