If you follow the Practical Family Facebook page, you’ll notice that I share my favorite Amazon products every so often. I love to suggest supplies and tools that we use regularly in the home or for homeschool, and Amazon deals are the best on Amazon Prime Day!
With the new school year just around the corner, I wanted to take an opportunity to put our favorite go-to supplies in one post, and I’m happy to hear suggestions of your favorites, too! Just leave a note in the comments.
But first things first…
What is Amazon Prime Day?
Amazon Prime Day is one of Amazon’s largest annual events during which they put thousands of items on sale on run deals for a limited time. This sale has even come to rival Black Friday in the online shopping world, as Amazon has become a leading retailer for their quick shipping times and widespread customer ratings.
Can anyone get Amazon deals on Prime Day?
The thing is, this special offering is exclusively for Prime Members. Not a member yet? It’s so so worth it, even just the free shipping is amazing!
You can get a Prime Membership here and take advantage of the Prime Day deals. You can even cancel before the 30-day trial period before cancelling to avoid the $119 annual fee.
When is Amazon Prime Day?
This year (2018), Prime Day deals start on July 16th at 12 pm Pacific Time and will run for 36 hours through the end of July 17th
What does Prime Day mean for Homeschoolers?
Amazon Prime Day is a chance to save money on items you’ve been eye-ing but couldn’t quite justify the cost.
But there is so much more that Amazon offers besides physical products (and books… so many books). Homeschooling can be made easier by efficient ways to get groceries delivered to your home, reading lists on your Kindle device, audio books for that child who has trouble reading, and music to soothe their quiet times at home.
