Amazon Prime Day is the online retail giant’s annual celebration of door-busting deals. Prices will be slashed on products ranging from Instant Pots, iPads, flat-screen TVs, and, of course, components and gear for mountain bikers and outdoor enthusiasts.
There’s one catch: you must be an Amazon Prime member to cash in on these deals. An annual Amazon Prime subscription costs $119 annually or $12.99 per month. If you’re not a member, you can sign up for an Amazon Prime membership in a few minutes. There’s a 30-day cancellation window, so there’s little risk in trying it.
If you’re already a member, the Prime Day deals (or days, since these deals run for 48 hours) are quite compelling. There will be deep discounts on all sorts of items. We’ll be updating this post frequently, so check back regularly for the best Prime Day deals for mountain bikers.
When does Amazon Prime Day start in 2019?
For 2019, Amazon Prime Day kicks off Monday, July 15 at 12 am Pacific Daylight Time and runs through July 16.
What Goes on Sale During Amazon Prime Day?
Last year, more than one-million deals were available exclusively to Amazon Prime members. In other words, a lot of products go on sale during Amazon Prime Day. Based on previous years, there are plenty of cycling-related items that will go on sale for Amazon Prime Day 2019.
Gadgets are often heavily discounted. If you’re the market for a new cycling computer or smartwatch, keep an eye out. Are you looking to improve your home repair shop? Prime Day is a great time stock up on Allen keys, torque wrenches, and air compressors, not to mention chain lube and degreaser.
There are plenty of heavily discounted consumer goods that, while not specifically for cycling, might be worth buying. If you need a new tablet for logging basement base miles on Zwift, a new blender for protein shakes, or a new cooler for post-ride beers, stay tuned.
What are the Benefits of Amazon Prime?
Not an Amazon Prime member? The good news is, Amazon offers a 30-day free trial for Prime, which means you can actually sign up and take advantage of Prime Day 2019 when it happens without forking over any extra cash.
