Amazon Prime Day is Tuesday July 12 in 2016

It’s like Black Friday in July for Amazon Prime members. Amazon officially announced Tuesday 7/12/16 as this year’s Prime Day. They even have Prime Day Teaser page. The offers will work more or less like their regular deals but will be (hopefully) next-level good.

If you are not currently a Prime member, you can join the party by signing up for a FREE 30 Day Prime Trial, which will easily cover July 12. You can easily cancel the free trial from the Amazon account pages. You don’t have to contact customer service, you just go to the page and click click click and it is cancelled.

Other things equal, I am planning to do wall to wall coverage on that day. If nothing else, it’s practice for Black Friday which is less than five months away 🙂
