Time really flies, doesn’t it? Prime Day, the period when Amazon (and probably a significant number of its competitors) will lower the prices of many of its products for Prime members, is coming. It’s scheduled for July 11 and 12, but there are already a ton of pre-Prime Day sales.
If you’re interested in the goodies on offer but haven’t signed up for Amazon Prime, don’t worry – Amazon makes it really easy. (Not surprisingly – after all, it would be the sorry salesman who would make it hard for people to become new customers.)

You can share your Prime account – and most of its features – with one other adult, along with a teen and/or child. And you get a 30-day free trial so you can try it (and the Prime Day specials).
We should probably state the obvious: you can sign up for a Prime membership, take advantage of the 30-day free trial, and then cancel it after the Prime Day sales are over. But you can only do that once, so you can’t use that trick next year when Prime Day arrives again.
