Amazon Big Spring Sale 2024 Is On! Grab a Deal Today!

Share what you're reading!

It's that time again! Today starts the Amazon Big Spring Sale of 2024, which lasts from March 20 to March 25. During these five days, you're guaranteed to find all sorts of deals on Spring-related purchases.

What purchases, you might ask? That's up to you! What's noteworthy is that every time you buy something from Amazon by following a link here, this website, as an Amazon associate, earns a tiny commission, which, when added up, helps pay for all the reviews' hardware costs and ultimately keeps the site's honest effort going. I'd hope so, anyway.

And there are lots of options. There must be something you'd want or need among these "must-see" items, the Spring tech upgrades, stuff for Easter preparation, the fashion updates, and whatnot. Check them out! Every purchase is a win-win.

You don't need to be an Amazon Prime subscriber to take advantage of this sale event, but it helps if you are since there are Prime-exclusive deals. That said, below is the A-B-C of what you can do to make the most out of your hard-earned dough during this special time for the shopaholic in you!

The Amazon Big Spring Sale has lots of things for you to buy.

Amazon Big Spring Sale of 2024: Tips on how to make the most out of them

To take full advantage of these Amazon Big Spring Sale Deals, you need three things:

A. A Prime Membership

If you're not already a Prime user, click here to sign up.

An Amazon membership offers a lot more than the free 2-day shipping. It includes streaming (Prime Video and Amazon Music), Amazon storage with unlimited photos and 5TB of video, discounts on groceries (Amazon Fresh and Whole Foods), and much more.

You have a couple of options:

  • The standard plan costs $14.99/month or $139/year with a 30-day free trial.
  • The Prime Student plan costs $7.49/month or $69/year with a 6-month free trial.
  • If you're qualified for government assistance, you can get a discounted plan of $6.99/month with a 30-day free trial.

As noted, all of these options come with a free trial. You won't be charged during this time or judged if you cancel the membership before the trial ends—if so, all the benefits you've enjoyed during the trial remain yours to keep.

Since the membership has a lot to offer, you might want to keep it anyway.

B. Get loaded and be responsible

The Prime membership, or the decision not to have one, is only the first step. In any case, you'll still need to pay for the stuff you want to purchase.

And that's the key. Make sure you're eyeing what you need and not something you buy simply because it's a "deal". A deal is only a deal when you have a legitimate use for it.

When to place a router? The answer might surprise you!

And then get loaded—set aside some cash. Don't spend money you don't already have—but you already know that.

C. A good list of what you should consider

And this is the hardest part. There are so many options. And I'm not an expert in shopping.

However, below is a list of items I've used myself that are currently available at good or great deals. I'll update the list as I learn more.
