Amazon Prime Day Is Here: Here's How To Score Discounts On Things You Actually Want

May the clicks be forever in your favor.

It’s Amazon Prime Day, the day Amazon offers steep discounts on thousands of pieces of merchandise, all in a bid to convince you to sign up for the internet retailer’s membership service. 

The Prime promo is a bit like Black Friday, only in summer. And without the masses of sometimes-violent, bargain-crazed shoppers. And only on Amazon, exclusively for Prime members.

So to redeem any of these deals, you’ll first need to sign up for a free 30-day Prime trial, here. The service costs $10.99 a month after the 30 free days, so remember to cancel it if you find it isn’t worth your hard-earned money.

If you’re not seeing a deal you like, here’s where it gets interesting. When you buy at least $50 in Amazon gift cards on Prime Day, the service will give you a $10 credit ― just be sure to use the code GCPRIME16 at checkout. (Unfortunately the deal is one per customer, so you can’t double up on what’s effectively a site-wide 20 percent discount.)

Entrepreneur notes the gift card deal cycled in and out of stock last year, so check back once or twice if it’s unavailable.

Amazon also has a handful of similar discounts for shoppers who buy products using one of their branded devices. These include:
