Get ready shoppers, Amazon Prime Day is right around the corner. As always, Shopbrain wants you to find the best deals on all the products you are scouring the internet to find. If you’re still on the fence about joining the other 100 million users worldwide, here are some lesser-known services you get with an Amazon Prime subscription.
1. Discounts on Amazon’s Private Label
It’s well known that shoppers can find almost anything they are looking for on Amazon. What fewer people know is that Amazon has its own private label with some products only available to Prime members. With especially deep discounts on Amazon Prime Day in 135 private-label categories, shoppers can find everything from baby products to food to Amazon hardware like the Echo Dot.
2. Lightning Deals
The deep discounts found in Amazon’s lightning deals, on products like the hottest tech accessories and current fashions, typically cause the biggest frenzy on Prime Day because they only last a few hours and have limited supplies. Shoppers can set up notifications that alert users when a deal goes live because with such limited supplies, it’s best to stay in the know. Smart shoppers check out upcoming deals on their desktop or in the Amazon app to see deals 24 hours before they go live. If you still miss out on something you really want, you can add yourself to a waitlist after the deal is sold out. It’s not guaranteed but hey, it’s worth a shot.
3. Amazon Key Delivery
Everybody knows Prime shoppers are eligible for free, two-day delivery, but Amazon also offers a service called Amazon Key. Mainly used to thwart porch pirates from stealing packages, this delivery service gives access to a Prime customer’s home, garage, or car trunk to authorized shippers during a four-hour delivery window. It works through a smart lock using a combination and is only available in certain areas.
4. Amazon Fashion
Amazon has several private-label fashion brands for women, men, children and baby that are only available to Prime members. Savvy shoppers should also check out two cool fashion services. Prime Wardrobe is a hassle-free way to try three or more fashion items, including accessories and shoes. You have seven days to decide whether you want to keep an item. If it looked better on the hanger, you can send it back for free. Amazon also offers a free outfit compare service. This nifty service gives advice on what looks best on you, how clothes fit, your best colors, what’s trendy, and how to style an outfit. It’ll help when your most stylish and honest friend isn’t available.
5. Amazon Books
Amazon wants to get adults and kids reading. Prime members can borrow one book free from Kindle each month through Amazon’s First Reads, and Prime Book Box is a book subscription service for children. Parents will love the 40% savings, free delivery, and that they can preview the books. Little readers up to 12 years old will love the two hardcover books or four board books they’ll receive, hand-picked by Amazon’s team of book experts. Amazon even has a STEM Club subscription program that sends out toys and games for kids who love all things science, tech, engineering, and math.
