Inside: Why I love Amazon Prime for Hair & Beauty products and much, much more!
Can I tell you a secret?
I hate to shop. And when I say that, I mean I really hate to shop!
I work full-time, and I can’t bear to waste my precious time off elbowing my way through crowds at Target or my local mall. Standing in line? Definitely not my favorite thing to do.

Enter Amazon Prime!
I am a proud Amazon Prime member and use it for the majority of my online shopping.
I like to support my local businesses for unique items, but for everyday items like shampoo, conditioner, blow dryers, etc. I prefer to buy them on Amazon and avoid the hassle.
WHAT IS AMAZON PRIME?
Amazon Prime is a subscription service that gives members access to a variety of perks, such as:
- Free 2-day shipping on Amazon purchases (and sometimes 1-Day or Same-Day shipping!)
- Access to Amazon Prime Video – we ditched our cable years ago and prefer Amazon Prime for all of our family’s TV and movie needs. The selection is excellent.
- Access to exclusive deals on Amazon Prime Day
- Amazon Prime Music membership – you can access up to 2 million songs for free, or you can pay for a subscription and access over 50 million songs!
- Unlimited cloud Photo Storage – plus 5GB of storage for documents and videos
- Free Kindle books, Audible discounts, and much more!
At this time, Prime Membership costs $119 per year or $12.99 per month. The free shipping alone will save you a TON of money.

WHAT IS AMAZON PRIME DAY?
Amazon Prime Day is a 36-hour sales frenzy (think an online version of “Black Friday”). Amazon heavily discounts thousands of items to prices only seen once a year. It’s a great day to find deals, but you must be an Amazon Prime member to take advantage of these deals.
In 2020, Prime Day is October 13th and 14th.
Prime Day 2020 will officially begin at 12:01 a.m. PDT (6:01 a.m. EDT) on Tuesday, October 13. It will last a full 48 hours, ending at 11:59 p.m. on Wednesday, October 14.
WHAT DEALS WILL BE AVAILABLE ON AMAZON PRIME DAY?

HOW CAN I FIND THE BEST AMAZON PRIME PRODUCTS FOR GRAY HAIR?
Shop the Katie Goes Platinum Storefront, of course!
I keep an updated list of items that are great for your gray hair, depending on your needs. There are categories such as Brightening Your Silvers, Help for Crazy Gray Eyebrows, and many many more!
ARE THERE ANY CONS TO SHOPPING ON AMAZON?
With hair and beauty items, you need to be a little more careful than you do with other items as sometimes counterfeit items are sold by unscrupulous sellers.
I have had to return one or two beloved and trusted cosmetics products because I could tell immediately that they were not the real product. Luckily, this doesn’t happen often.
To make sure you are getting the legitimate product, read this post for tips.
Amazon Prime is a great deal, with a lot of benefits at a minimal cost. If you are crunched for time and/or do not like shopping, you should definitely try it out!
