We have a simple way that you can score some sweet deals and have them delivered hassle-free to your front door.
First, here’s Tom’s Guide with what you need to know to shop on Prime Day.
Prime Day started in 2015 to celebrate Amazon’s 20th anniversary. Since then, it’s grown into a global phenomenon celebrated in 18 countries.

How To Access Prime Day Deals
Prime Day is Amazon’s “thank you” to Prime members. As a result, shoppers must be Amazon Prime subscribers to take advantage of any deals.
Amazon offers a free Prime member trial when you first sign up. After your 30-day trial is up, you can keep your membership, or cancel it before the free trial expires.
Whatever you decide to do, your Prime trial period will let you shop deals on Prime Day.
The Kind Of Deals You Can Expect
You can expect deals on just about everything from games to electronics to clothing.
Although tech plays a big role on Prime Day, Amazon will also have discounts on other items like apparel and home decor. Right now Amazon is taking 30% off school essentials, 30% off college gear, and 30% off household essentials. Amazon’s own clothing brands like Lark & Ro and GoodThreads will also be on sale during Prime Day.
You’ll want to set aside an hour to look at what Amazon has on offer so that you know what to search when the sale begins.
Shipping To South Africa
Shipping to South Africa from the US can be a headache. There’s also the possibility that many of the products that you’ll want to buy don’t ship outside of the US.
Here’s a really simple solution.
Postbox Courier gives you a shipping address in the US, UK and Hong Kong.
So, if you’re buying products that don’t ship to SA, or you don’t want to deal with the customs mess once it arrives on our shores, then just give that US address, which Postbox Courier gives you for free).
As soon as it is delivered there (often the same day you order, or the following day), Postbox Courier will grab it and bring it to you in South Africa in three to five working days.
It really is that easy.
Head on over to Postbox Courier’s website to set up your account, which is free, and nab yourself that international address.
