Amazon Prime day versus Amazon on Black Friday- which has better bargains?

Amazon's Prime Day is a day, or two, where Prime members can snag some exclusive deals. These deals are in comparison, if not better than the deals all customers receive on Black Friday. Which day has better deals, though?

The numbers do not lie. Amazon started the exclusive day of deals for Prime Members to celebrate its twenty-fifth birthday in 2015. Let us take a closer look at the deals for these 2 days. We will then give you a clear understanding of which day is better to shop.

What is Amazon Prime Day?

It is a day set up exclusively for Prime Members. If you are a Prime Member of the site, you can save with the many deals available to you. The first-ever day set aside exclusively for Prime Members was July 15, 2015. Some think it was an over-rated publicity stunt.

It was started as a way for the company to give back to its members. It was a way to celebrate their twenty-fifth birthday. The birthday celebration was a success and the company has continued hosting the event every year since. Every year, the event gets better.

The 2019 event was the best so far. In July 2019, the event was hosted for 48 hours. Prime Members saw the best deals near the end of the 48-hour event. Every year, the event boasts better numbers than the immediate preceding year. It appears the company has found itself a keeper sale.

What About Black Friday?

It is the accepted term for the Friday following the Thanksgiving Day Holiday. Every year shoppers go to a day-long event of shopping and starting their Christmas shopping list. All stores both brick-and-mortar and eCommerce put on specials to attract the most customers.

The first Black Friday event was held in 1952. Despite this, the term has not been used to describe the day until recent decades. Amazon is no stranger to hosting sales on the Friday after Thanksgiving. The site offers many sales that usually begin late on Thanksgiving Day. The sales are plentiful and the day usually boasts profits for the company.

The deals site-wide are extraordinary. These sales are open to all visitors to the company's site. You do not have to be a Prime Member to snag a deal with this sale. So, which day has the better deals? Read on to find out.

The Better Deals

Some companies have followed the deals for Amazon's 2 biggest sale days. These studies are ongoing and they state that the Prime Day deals might be slightly better than the other. It might be because of the way the site owner and operator value the customers who visit.

Whether the trends will hold up for the year 2019 is still to be answered. The day for Prime Members has passed. But, we have yet to kick off the 2019 Holiday shopping. We cannot be certain if the Day for Prime Members was better in 2019. If the trends hold up, though, it was.
