The first ever Amazon Prime Day may have been a bit… lackluster, but Amazon seems to have figured out how things went wrong and had a much stronger showing in Year 2. This year, for the third annual Amazon Prime Day, the internet retailer has once again upped the ante, expanding their sale in nearly every imaginable way. You can even prepare for Prime Day by getting a free $10 credit for simply streaming a movie or TV show via Prime Video.
I said that the sale was getting bigger, and it’s expanding to more locations. This year 13 countries will be able to join in on the fun.
Prime Day has expanded to 13 countries this year, and Amazon is bringing new and existing members in the U.S., U.K., Spain, Mexico, Japan, Italy, India, Germany, France, China, Canada, Belgium and Austria the best deals of the year.
Not a prime member? No worries. You can sign up for a free 30 day trial to see what all the fuss is about. If you like what you see, you can keep your membership running.
Existing Prime members can get started ahead of time with $10 for free. You can get the full instructions on Amazon but the overall gist is pretty straightforward. You’ll just need to log into your Amazon account on your TV (there are apps available for many popular TVs as well as game consoles), and stream a movie or TV show that is available on Amazon Prime. That’s it. Your credit should be applied to your account within a few days. Amazon says that your credit won’t be listed on your account, but it will be applied to your next purchase on any item sold or fulfilled by Amazon by 11:59PST on Prime Day (July 11th).
If you’re already a Prime member, you can also visit the official Amazon Prime Day page to find more exclusive deals and promotions leading up to the big day.
