Amazon Prime Day List for Actors

It’s no secret that Amazon’s Prime Day has become basically Christmas in July. Black Friday in July to be more precise. 

I’ve been an affiliate for Amazon for a while and have seen some excellent deals have really helped actors over the years from self tape gear, to audiobooks, to videos and more. So I’ve decided to put them all on one list to make it easy when time is a factor and you’ve only got a few hours to score some great savings.
