Amazon has deals on nearly all of its own services for Prime Day 2019


With Amazon Prime Day coming soon, many shoppers may assume the best deals are for smart home devices, Instant Pots, and robot vacuums. But Amazon also discounts Prime Day prices on Amazon services like Audible, Amazon Music Unlimited, Kindle Unlimited, AmazonFresh, and more.

In the run-up to Prime Day, which lasts 48 hours this year on July 15 and July 16, Amazon has been releasing pre-Prime Day deals to build shopper excitement and to keep other retailers on their toes. We’ve been tracking the deals as Amazon releases them and making predictions about pricing for popular products. We have found early discounts on Amazon Services, listed below. We also list additional services deals we expect but have not yet been able to verify.

Prime Day in October: Get a pack of 12 AA rechargeable batteries for $18
AmazonsBasics AA batteries being inserted into a game controller.

As much as we try to avoid it, sometimes, you just have to buy those pesky household items you never want to spend money on. But if you're lucky, you can take advantage of some excellent discounts, like Prime Day deals, which provide the perfect opportunity to stock up. Amazon's Prime Day Big Deal Days event makes those discounts even sweeter. While we are close to an AA-battery-free world, it hasn't happened yet. Fortunately, we have a rechargeable option to spend less money and throw fewer batteries into landfills. Right now, you can get a 12-pack of Amazon Basic rechargeable batteries for just $18, thanks to a 10% discount on Prime Day. This deal will likely only stick around during the sale, so if your battery drawer is running low, grab them as soon as possible.

Why you should buy Amazon AA rechargeable batteries during the Prime Day Big Deal Days sale
Of course, there's not much I can tell you about batteries that you don't already know. These Amazon Basics brand AAs have a 2,000 mAh storage capacity. That's lower than a traditional alkaline battery, but it has enough power to last for a good three to four hours of continuous use. Then the rechargeable factor comes in. You can recharge these batteries about 1,000 times before they die out. Think about how many batteries it will save you -- and how much money. Let's do some quick napkin math. 1,000 recharges... alkaline batteries cost around one-third the price of a rechargeable... factor in the difference in storage capacity... It could be as much as $300 in savings over a single battery's lifetime. A lot less waste too.
