A sale so nice they’ll do it twice… sort of. Following the success of last year’s extended 36-hour Prime Day, Amazon has doubled down on Prime Day 2019 and is stretching the epic summer sale into two full days (July 15th & 16th) jam-packed with primo product deals for its customers.
With discounts on upwards of a million items rolling out in this year’s 48-hour window, there’s plenty of great gear available for globetrotters. Here’s the lowdown on the best deals for thrifty travelers that are ready to add to your cart now!
Top Travel Deals For Amazon Prime Day 2019
First things first, with the name Prime Day, it shouldn't be a huge surprise that you’ll need to be an Amazon Prime member to score these discounted deals. If you’re not a member yet, no worries, you can sign up here in a flash and get in on the action. Annual memberships cost $119, with yearly student memberships available for $59. If you don’t want to commit for a full year, monthly memberships are available for $12.99. Still on the fence? Sign up for a free 30-day trial account to access all that Prime Day has to offer.
Now that you’re a Prime Member (if not already) the next step to stay on top of the slew of sale deals is to download the Amazon app. If you don’t already have it, you’ll get $10 just for signing in for the first time on your phone (and another $10 after your first in-app purchase). This way, you’ll be able to get real-time updates on the deals and previews before they post.
Once the app is up and running, sign up for notifications. Amazon has a handy step-by-step guide here on how to do so. Push alerts will ping you as soon as a new sale item is announced, so you’ll be ready to pounce before popular items sell-out.
