Amazon launched Prime Day in 2015 with hopes that a one-day shopping event would boost sales during the slow summer months. Well, the retailer achieved that and much more. Prime Day surpassed Black Friday 2014 sales, becoming Amazon's biggest day ever. About 398 products sold every second! Prime Day 2016 broke records again, and it's likely 2017 will do the same.
You'll find flash deals and sweeping discounts on almost every product category. Prime Day offers savings on the latest Amazon devices, apparel for the whole family, laptops, tablets, headphones, baby essentials, makeup, skincare, and the list goes on!
Borderlinx offers package forwarding addresses in the U.S., U.K., Hong Kong and Germany, which means as an international shopper, you can take advantage of Amazon Prime Day from any of those countries.
Don't sign in to Amazon on Prime Day without planning ahead. You don't want that headache. Here are a few things to know before you deep dive into pages of deals.
