Amazon Prime Day 2021 is just around the corner, scheduled to bring a slew of fantastic Prime Day camera deals to your screen from 21 to 22 June. However, if you want to access the Amazon Prime Day deals, then you'll need to ensure that you've signed up for an Amazon Prime membership. 

In fact, Amazon Prime Day can be seen as an especially canny move from Amazon, as it's essentially a massive annual drive to move consumers into an Amazon Prime membership. 

While Amazon Prime Day is known for its deals, one of the best aspects of ordering from Amazon is the peace of mind you get regarding the journey the product makes from the warehouse to your front door. Not only does Amazon operate a clear and sensible returns policy, but it's also known for its excellent shipping practices.

When you order something from Amazon, you roughly know what the box will look like and how long it will take to get to you. When it comes to online shopping, these can be unusual qualities to find in a website, so we never underestimate how useful Amazon can be.

With a wealth of benefits including free one-day shipping, one of the best streaming services, free music and more, investing in an Amazon Prime membership is actually a pretty good idea – even without the draw of Prime Day. 

However, you can still sign up for a Prime membership and enjoy all the Prime Day deals without having to spend a penny. This is thanks to the 30-day free trial that you can use to take advantage of the discounts and then simply cancel the membership when Prime Day is over. If you sign up now, you'll be well within the cancellation period once Prime Day has finished. 

Sign up for an Amazon Prime membership (with a 30-day free trial) and see what benefits you can enjoy below.

Amazon Prime benefits

Unlimited One-Day Delivery

This is definitely one of the most-used benefits from Amazon Prime – after all, who doesn't want their new purchases to arrive as quickly as possible? Not everything on Amazon has Prime Delivery options available, but with millions of items available with this benefit, you're sure to find something suitable. 

Unlimited Same-Day Delivery

This is the perfect option for those who are super pressed for time, but still need their chosen item as quickly as possible. It's not available everywhere, but if you're in a region with unlimited same-day delivery, you can use it seven days a week.

Okay, so one-day and same-day delivery aren't enough? How about 1 & 2 hour delivery instead?! Like same-day delivery, this isn't available everywhere, but if you're lucky enough to have access to this then you'll be able to order packages to your house in a matter of one or two hours seven days a week.
