I admit it: I’m an Amazon addict. The convenience of shopping online and having anything I can imagine delivered to my door in just a few days is a dream come true. Every year I look forward to Prime Day, the day Amazon rolls out massive deals for Amazon Prime members. This year’s Prime Day is taking place July 16-17, officially launching on the 16th at 3:00 PM ET.
I especially love using Prime Day to buy gifts for loved ones—is there anything better than getting great deals and knowing you’ve got upcoming birthdays and holidays covered?
Spoiler alert: there IS something better—getting great deals and gifts while also supporting a cause you care about! If you shop using AmazonSmile, a percentage of your purchases will be donated to the charity of your choice. That means you can support the Prevent Cancer Foundation’s lifesaving research and programs simply by shopping.
AmazonSmile carries the same products as Amazon, and millions of products are eligible for charitable donations. To get started, visit AmazonSmile, log in to your account, select the Prevent Cancer Foundation® as your charity of choice and start shopping!
If you don’t have a Prime membership, don’t sweat it! Set yourself up with a 30-day free trial, or pay $12.99 for one month of Prime. If you’re a student, you can sign up for a 6-month free trial or get 50 percent off of the yearly membership. In the days leading up to Prime Day, Amazon will likely offer discounts on their Prime membership, so it’s a great time to make your move and cash in on the deals offered on July 16 and 17.
Mark your calendar and get ready to score great deals while supporting cancer prevention efforts.
