You must be an Amazon Prime member to participate. A prime membership is $119 per year which includes free two-day shipping on prime items (most items are included).
Prime shipping has made the membership worth it for our family since we did all our Christmas shopping on Amazon this year and avoided stores all together.
Amazon offers a free 30-day Prime trial, so you can participate in the sale and then cancel after the 30 days. It’s worth checking out if you are considering a membership, since membership also includes streaming Amazon Prime video (a limited but worthwhile selection), Prime photo online storage, Kindle Owners’ Lending Library of books, and 20% off diapers and 15% off baby registry items.

This sale will be worth it if you’ve got your eye on something already and are hoping to get it for a great price, especially a big electronic purchase or a larger toy purchase. I recommend adding items to your wish list now.
This might also be a good time to do some early holiday shopping if you have a list ready.
You will for sure want to use the Amazon App to track Prime Day deals as they come. You can “watch and waitlist” a deal so you will be notified when it is available. I have been using the Amazon App and they’ve significantly improved the experience.
