In case you haven't heard, Amazon Prime Day is just around the corner. Lasting two days, from June 21 through June 22, the event – one of the biggest online sales events of the year – promises millions of deals and some of the year's best offers on Amazon products and services and other goodies featured on Amazon – including virtually everything you need and want for your dog. While the official Prime Day period will feature some of the best day-of deals, Amazon is kicking things off with hundreds of deals leading up to the big event itself. Your furry friends will feel so spoiled!
What is Amazon Prime Day?
If you've never taken advantage of Amazon Prime Day before, just know that you're missing out. First kicked off in 2015, Prime Day is one of the biggest online sales events of the year, eagerly anticipated and often enshrouded in mystery as to the official date up until a few weeks before the event. It's usually held in July, but not always. Last year, for example, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it was delayed until October. Lucky for us, the mega-event is being held a bit earlier this year, running from June 21 through June 22. Expect to see prices drop to their lowest all year, even beating out some Black Friday deals.
Speaking of Black Friday, you might be wondering: which is better, Prime Day or Black Friday? It really depends on what you're looking for.
Prime Day is more likely to feature sweet deals on items that usually go for under $100, as well as products you're more likely to buy throughout the year (like pet supplies!).
Black Friday, on the other hand, typically features more deals on more expensive, one-time purchases such as a new television or entertainment system. Black Friday can also take place both online (including websites besides Amazon) and offline in brick-and-mortar stores (you've probably heard news stories about Black Friday stampedes before). Following on the heels of Black Friday, Cyber Monday features the best online deals for electronics.
But we're talking about Prime Day, here. You may be wondering about a few other things. Such as...
Who is Amazon Prime Day for?
The biggest caveat to Prime Day is that it's exclusively accessible to Amazon Prime customers. Not a Prime customer yet? Consider subscribing to Amazon Prime. For over 200 million people, it's worth it. Amazon offers a 30-day free trial and after that, if you continue, it's just $12.99 a month, plus any applicable taxes.
What do you get out of Amazon Prime?
Quite a bit. An Amazon Prime membership grants you access to Prime deals and free two- or one-day shipping on Prime eligible products (and there are many), not to mention other benefits like streaming access to thousands of movies, TV shows and Amazon Originals and over two million ad-free songs.
If you're someone who likes shopping online and saving on shipping and finding good deals, it's really something to consider. If you're a student, you could likely qualify for a Prime Student membership that's 50% off the regular price, paying only $6.49 a month after a free six-month trial.
Long story short: you do need a Prime membership in order to participate in Amazon Prime Day deals. However, if you like shopping online and enjoying perks like fast and free shipping and access to entertainment and even savings at places like Whole Foods, it's probably worth it.
When exactly is Prime Day, again?
This year, Prime Day will begin on Monday, June 21 at 12:00 a.m. PDT (midnight) and last 48 hours through Tuesday, June 22.
What are the benefits of Prime Day?
- From June 7 through Prime Day, spending $10 with any of the more than 300,000 small businesses participating on Amazon will earn Prime members a $10 credit to use during Prime Day. Need to buy something before Prime Day? Sounds good to us.
- Also from June 7 through Prime Day, if you use the Amazon Prime credit card to shop at Amazon's small businesses, you'll earn you 10% back.
- Gain access to thousands of deals on products in various categories, including day-of deals (remember, these have a short window, usually around 3-6 hours before expiring), similar to daily Amazon "lightning" deals.
- In the weeks leading up to Prime Day itself, take advantage of thousands of early deals available now.
Speaking of those early deals, we've compiled some of the best deals we've seen on high-quality dog products. If you're convinced, get a head-start checking out our list and know that you can experience the benefits of Prime Day even now! Your canine friends will love you even more for it.
