In two years Amazon Prime membership doubled

Prime Day becomes a huge shopping event, although it’s addressed only to the members of the multi-benefit Prime program.

Are you getting ready for Prime Day 2017? It’s one of the biggest shopping events on Amazon, with thousands of deals – and some of these deals are better than those offered during Black Friday or Cyber Monday.

There is one catch, though. To be able to take advantage of the Prime Day, you have to be a member of Amazon Prime subscription-based shopping program.

The membership costs $10.99 per month and offers several benefits, including unlimited access to Prime movies, music, and digital publications, or free two-day shipping, among others.

Although Prime Day is addressed only to Prime members, not all Amazon customers, it’s becoming a huge shopping event. Some facts that prove it are collected in an infographic presented below.

The infographic was released by Volo Commerce, an easy-to-use multi-channel e-commerce software and service.

As you’ll see on the visual, Amazon prepared more deals for Prime Day 2016 than for the 2015 Black Friday. Prime Day 2016 sales reached $2.5 billion, versus $1.5 billion in 2015, what makes a nearly 40% increase.

When is Amazon Prime Day 2017? Book your time for July 11. You’ll find the list of all deals at Prime Day landing page. Just have a look at the offered deals: toys, pet products, everyday essentials, and electronics!

Some of the deals are already activated, naming only the 40% discount on Audible audiobooks subscription, or 25-40% percent price cut on Kindle Unlimited subscription plans.
