As Singaporeans, we take pride in being kiasu. We may make fun of aunties who like to hoard coupons, but let’s be honest – being thrifty goes a long way, especially when the costs of living are increasing. For those who want to stretch their dollar, the annual Amazon Prime Day is a perfect time, with plenty of deals for us.

Prime Day is Amazon’s annual deal event exclusively for Prime members, featuring amazing deals on top brands and products from small businesses. Technically, it isn’t just a ‘day’; this year’s edition runs on two days, from midnight on July 12 and runs through July 13. Save big on must-have products from the brands you know and love like Dyson, Playstation, SK II, Xiao Mi and LEGO. You’ll also be able to support local brands and small-medium businesses. 

Amazon Singapore customers can also explore an expanded selection of Amazon Japan products, with categories from clothing to electronics and even video games and beauty products. There will also be deals from Japanese brands like Nintendo, Wacom and more.

However, as mentioned, all these deals are exclusively for Prime members. To make use of these deals, you can take a 30-day free trial of Prime (what we recommend, just to try it out first, you know), or pay $2.99 a month for Prime membership.

As a Prime member, you can stream your favourite shows with Prime Video (we highly recommend watching hit shows like The Boys), and gain access to free games and in-game loot with Prime Gaming. You’re also promised free and fast delivery. Note: You gain bonus perks if you’re new to Amazon, too! 

There are also vouchers available, with discounts on everyday essentials, gifts, electronics, beauty, toys, and more. Simply clip the voucher, and the discount will be applied at checkout! For those in the mood for giving, check out the gift cards.

For Singaporean and small to medium-sized businesses, look out for deals like a $5 voucher with every purchase of a value set meal bought from 12 to 13 July from Ya Kun Kaya Toast outlets in Singapore, and savings of up to 30% off Snailax, Epitex, Pristine Aroma, Manscaped, Renpho and more. 

To celebrate Prime Day, Amazon will be recreating a classic carnival experience at the first-ever Prime Day Pit Stop event in Singapore. You can attend in-person, and play classic games such as ‘cornhole’ to win exciting prizes, including gift cards. Simply pop by the entrance of Ocean Financial Centre from 12-13 July, 10am to 7pm.
