How can I support small businesses on Prime Day?
This year, Amazon is working hard to further its commitment of helping small business during COVID-19. “Amazon is investing more than $100 million throughout the holiday season on new promotional activities to help small businesses around the world and enabling hundreds of thousands of smaller companies to sustain and even grow their sales despite the COVID-19 crisis and beyond.
Is there anything else that I should know?
Just a few shopping tips!
- To make the most of Prime Day, you can share your Prime benefits (like shopping Prime Day) with your family by creating a “household” for your account for free.
- Shop with Alexa: Prime members can discover deals by asking “Alexa, what are my Prime Day deals?” Plus, starting today, new members who sign up for Prime using an Echo device will receive a $5 Amazon credit. Just say, “Alexa, sign me up for Prime.”
- Keep an eye out for new products that launch on Prime Day just for Prime members and watch for the blue badge that says “PRIME DAY DEAL” to make sure you’re shopping the best sales.
Be sure to check back here on October 13 and 14 to find all of the best deals. Happy shopping!
