Get the lowdown on Amazon Prime Day!
Raising little bookworms (and probably being book-obsessed yourselves) could mean that you’re constantly looking for awesome children’s books to build their own personal libraries. And of course, we’re only too willing to oblige — encouraging our kids to read and nurturing their love of books is one parenting goal that’s high on our list. Which is why we’re pumped for the best deals available on books during Amazon Prime Day happening on 13 and 14 October! Mark your calendars people! You won’t want to miss this!
What is Amazon Prime Day?
Here’s the thing about Amazon Prime Day 2020 – it’s back for the third year, but this will be the first instalment in Singapore with Amazon.sg since its launch last year, allowing Singaporeans more ways to shop with Amazon! Exclusive to Prime members, the shopping event starts at midnight on 13 October 2020 (set your alarms!) and will run through 14 October for 48 hours.
Prime members will get the chance to shop deals and top products for the holiday season, including toys, books, beauty, baby products and more from the comfort and safety of their own homes! It’s an easy peasy way to get started on your Christmas shopping AND get some retail therapy. Ready, steady… add everything to your cart and go!
Prep your cart for Prime Day with the best books for all bookworms
For toddlers, add indestructible board books to your cart. From timeless classics such as Eric Carle’s Hungry Little Caterpillar to the super engaging Press Here by Herve Tullet, there’s lots to choose from on Amazon.sg! Young animal enthusiasts will love pawsome picks like Deborah Diesen’s The Pout-Pout Fish and Jon Klassen’s hilarious I Want My Hat Back.
For too-cool teens, exciting Young Adult reads might be the easiest way to convince them that reading is A-OK. Start by introducing them to the magical world of Harry Potter (who doesn’t love a good story about wizards and magic?) or even a murder-mystery from Karen McManus And psst.. If you want some YA reads for yourself, we’re totally with you — they’re our biggest guilty pleasure!
Need more book inspo? We recommend checking out the winners of Singapore Book Awards for awesome local reads such as Liyana Dhamirah’s Homeless and Harris bin Potter, The Stoned Philosopher by Suffian Hakim. Oh, and Amazon has a list of the top 20 books for 2020 so far, just in case you’re looking for more good reads. You know you can always count on Amazon for the best book selection. You can choose from 17 million books spanning multiple genres and age groups — it’s the go-to place for books in Singapore, no doubt!
What else can we expect?
Apart from awesome deals on books, there’s so much more to look forward to. We’re talking incredible savings and deep discounts on thousands of deals across every category and from local small and medium-sized businesses like Happyganics and Porcelain Skin. Plus, for easier gift-giving during the holidays, Amazon.sg is now offering e-Gift cards — and if you purchase them from 13 to 14 October, you’ll get an extra S$10 (on a minimum purchase of S$50 Amazon.sg e-Gift Card in a single transaction).
Not to mention, Amazon is introducing 10 new categories of products on Amazon.sg this Prime Day, with over two million additional products added to Amazon’s ever-expanding selections, covering categories like Jewelry, Musical Instruments, Furniture, DVD and more!
