One of the biggest shopping events of the year is just days away. No, it's not Christmas Eve or even Black Friday- Amazon Prime Day is here just in time for summer! Prime Day in recent years has made waves through the e-commerce world. Offering a wide array of products at heavily discounted rates, usually around 40% off. Amazon Prime Day has split their big day of sales into two days, so you don't need to miss out on anything. Prime day began in 2015 as a one-day sales event in honor of the company's 20th anniversary. It has since turned into an annual two-day event when amazon offers significant savings for everyone.
Amazon is a leader in the online shopping space. What launched as just a bookstore has turned into the epitome of a one-stop shop. Where else can you order toilet paper, a Japanese specialty sauce, and a designer handbag all in one place? Few shops are offering as diverse of a product assortment as amazon.com.
Amazon's free-with-prime two-day shipping has raised consumer standards for shipping across online retailers. Remember when stores used to take two weeks to process and ship out your order? Shipping speeds over a week are now almost unheard of. Amazon has expanded consumers ideas of what is possible for the e-commerce space. Companies like Walmart, which have traditionally only operated as brick and mortar stores, are now evolving their e-commerce platforms. Offering 2-day shipping and a multitude of products from third-party sellers in an effort to compete with Amazon.
This e-commerce growth comes at a benefit to the modern consumer. Shoppers are receiving products faster than ever before and with more options than ever before, allowing for more informed purchases. Not to mention specialty items that could once only be accessed by city dwellers, are now available to people in rural locations too. Amazon is bridging the gap of availability between sellers and consumers.
This accessibility is what makes the Amazon Prime Day sale so major. Amazon's audience is everyone- so your seventy-year-old dad can be just as excited about Prime Day as your ten-year-old daughter. Someone in Kentucky can be just as enthusiastic about Prime day as someone living in the West Village of Manhattan. Amazon knows no bounds.
Amazon has recently added Prime Day shows to its offerings. Usually, the concert is just for Amazon employees and their families, but the pandemic has brought live streams to the mainstream. This year prime members can live stream the Prime day concert and watch Billie Eilish, H.E.R., and Kid Cudi perform.
In an effort to highlight small businesses on their platform, Amazon is offering $10 credits for shoppers looking to shop small. Shop any small business now or before June 21-June 22 and receive a $10 credit to be applied towards your Prime Day Small Business purchase. This is just another way Amazon is doing its part.
