Time really does fly, doesn’t it? The summer is over, fall is here, and Amazon’s fall Prime Day sale, the period when Amazon (and probably a significant number of its competitors) will be dropping prices on a lot of its products for Prime members, is happening on October 10th and 11th.
If you’re interested in the goodies being offered but haven’t signed up for Amazon Prime, don’t worry — Amazon makes it very easy. (Not surprisingly. After all, it would be the sorry vendor who would make it difficult for people to become new customers.)

You can share your Prime account — and most of its features — with one other adult. And you get a 30-day free trial, so you can try it (and the Prime Day specials) out.
We should probably mention the obvious: you can sign up for a Prime membership, take advantage of the free 30-day trial, and then cancel it after the Prime Day sales are over. But you can only do that once, so you won’t be able to use that trick next year when Prime Day comes around again.
