What is Amazon Prime Day?

Prime Day is a one (plus) day shopping event by everyone’s online favorite retailer – Amazon.

A lot of people will put off summer shopping until Prime Day, just to catch all the bargains.

The cool thing is that other large retailers also try to get in on the craze by offering their own competing sales and deals. So it’s a big win-win for shoppers like you and me.

The first Amazon Prime Day was on July 15, 2015. It was a one-day sale and was so successful that Amazon has turned it into a yearly tradition. Amazon Prime Day 2018 lasted for 36 hours.

During that period, a lot of products (although not all) will be discounted, some with deep discounts. However, not all the products are discounted for the entirety of Prime Day. Some are limited deals, available only certain hours.

And many of the deals are limited on the number of items that they will sell. They may only offer 1,000 or 10,000 or some other limited quantity at the discounted price. So if you see a deal you like, you better jump on quick! There’s no waiting once you find a good deal.

When is Amazon Prime Day 2020?

Amazon has not announced when Amazon Prime Day 2020 will be.

But based on past years, we can predict that it will be around July 13-14, 2020.

Amazon is likely to announce the exact dates in May or so.

Normally we would expect Amazon Prime Day to be around July 13-14. But with all the craziness that 2020 has been, it appears that Prime Day is going to be postponed to sometime in at least August. Maybe even later into September.

Are You Ready for Amazon Prime Day?

To get ready for Prime Day, you’ll need to be a member of Amazon Prime.

The biggest benefit of Amazon Prime is definitely the two day free shipping on over 100 million items. In many cities, you can get free same day or next day shipping on many items (not everything but whatever they stock in their local warehouses are going to be eligible).

The good news is that you get a 30 day free trial using this link.

Extra Benefits on Prime that RVers Love

Amazon Prime is more than just the free shipping though.

Prime has a lot of extra benefits that RVers love:

  • Amazon Lockers If you are traveling, you can have products delivered to a nearby Amazon Locker. I’ve used the Amazon Locker at Georgia Tech during tailgating season. Just pay attention to the delivery dates so you’ll be there to pick up your orders. The Amazon Locker at GT (and many others places) is great for returning items too.

  • Amazon Delivery Day Another great feature for travelers. Schedule it so that all your packages will arrive on the same day. So as you order things, like say that busted sewer pipe one day and then the new spice rack another day, you can schedule the packages to arrive all on the day you get back from your trip. No packages sitting outside your house highlighting the fact that you aren’t home.

  • Amazon Video Being out on the road, it’s nice to have some entertainment options. Even when you are far from over-the-air digital television reception. When you are in town, download some movie and tv show options, including Amazon Prime Originals. Then when you are on the road or out in the boonies, you can still be entertained.

  • Whole Foods If you are planning an epic tailgate, you need epic quality food. So you can go to Whole Foods. Prime members, using the Amazon app on their phone, get special discounts and deals in-store.

    At the 2019 Atlanta NASCAR race, we did a low country boil with an oyster roast too. The savings on the oysters from Whole Foods alone paid for more than one third of this year’s Prime membership.

  • Amazon Photos If you are anything like me, you take a lot of photos during your RV travels and your tailgates on your smartphone. Prime members get access to Amazon Photos, which lets you backup unlimited full resolution photos and 5 GB of video included in their membership. You can then share the photos with anyone. This gives you an automatic backup of your phone and lets you free up space to take more photos.

The Amazon App Has Special Deals

Want to know a (not so) secret?

  1. Get the Amazon app on your smartphone.
  2. Create a wish list of RV items you want (hello Solo Stove)
  3. Amazon will notify you when your wish list items go on sale!

And on Prime Day, you’ll have special early access to certain deals through the app.

But wait until you sign up for Prime to download the app! Amazon will often send you an email with a discount code to save you an extra $5-20 to download, install, and order from the app! Who can say no to free money, right?

Another ongoing benefit of the Amazon app – the app will notify you when packages are delivered. Often even sending you photos of where they left the box. That’s kind of cool, so you know when your Wheel Witness Dash Cam arrives!

Save with an Amazon Store Card

If you are an avid Amazon shopper like me, then you might benefit from the Amazon Store Card.

The Amazon Store Card has no annual fee and 5% cash back on your Amazon purchases if you are a member of Amazon Prime.

The Amazon Store Card also has quite a few special sign on bonuses throughout the year. In March 2019, they are offering $40 in Amazon gift card credit after approval of your application.

And on Prime Day, you can get even more back! They’ll up the cash back reward, to say 20%, on Prime Day. That’s an extra savings!

But you’ll need the Amazon Store Card setup before Prime Day, so apply now!

Top RV Deals on Amazon Prime Day 2020

Don’t Miss Deals from Other Stores!

As Amazon Prime Day approaches, you’ll start seeing some of the deals be announced. I’ll include the top ones here.

Still More Amazon Prime Day Deals for RVers and Tailgaters

In addition to what I’ll call the top deals, a lot of other products will be on sale. RV necessities, like sewer hoses, gloves, LED bulbs, wash and wax gear and more, will be available at deep discounts.

It’s a great time to stock up on these items or replace worn items.

And while these things are great, they don’t attract quite the same attraction as the top deals.

Get Prime Day Credits Early!

In 2019, you could get $40 in Amazon credit before Prime Day even happened. As we get closer, I’m sure Amazon will once again be having similar promotions.

So check back as the weather gets warmer for ways to super size your Prime Day benefits.
