With the best Amazon Prime Day camera deals just around the corner, there has never been a better time to sign up for a free 30-day free trial of Amazon Prime. Not only will you be able to access the very best Prime Day deals, but there are lots of other advantages to being a Prime member, and some of which, few people know about. 

Whether or not you want to support Amazon as a photographer, you can’t deny that Prime does offer good value for money. The benefits here are listed more with photography in mind, although I do have to mention Deliveroo just because, well, free delivery on food is a plus for everyone!
