Amazon Prime Day

I often assume that my family and friends know the same thing I do when it comes to the online world and technology. Not the specialty things like book publishing, but I thought everyone knew about Amazon Prime Day.

My best friend and I were working out, and she asked me, “What is Amazon Prime Day?” I said it’s like Black Friday or Cyber Monday. It’s when Amazon offers deep discounts on some merchandise.

The catch is you have to be an Amazon Prime member. The Prime membership is a good investment if you regularly shop on Amazon because you get free shipping!

Not all Amazon sellers offer Prime shipping, but many do. I almost always find what I am looking for available with free Prime shipping.

You also get other perks as a Prime member, like streaming movies and music.

You can check out the other long list of benefits and try Amazon Prime free for 30 days using my affiliate link.

What I love about Amazon, besides helping entrepreneurs, having practically everything I search for, and fast shipping is their Amazon Associates Affiliate Program.

Amazon Associates is free to use and brings a little extra income for your favorite charity or creative who signs up for the program.

If you own a not-for-profit organization, you can sign up for Amazon’s affiliate program at smile.amazon.com.

If you want to help your favorite charity, visit smile.amazon.com and select your preferred organization. Then shop away! There is no extra cost to you. It’s a great way to support nonprofits often working on a shoestring budget.
