Amazon Prime Day Hacks

Amazon Prime Day is an exclusive sale period of 36 hours for Amazon Prime Members. During this 36-hour sale, Amazon the sells its items at a steeply discounted price to Amazon Prime members.
Amazon has not yet announced the dates for 2019 Prime day, but from my previous experiences it typically occurs sometime in July. I typically head begin preparations now with hopes to score major deals on back to school items, Christmas gifts, teacher gifts, birthday gifts, clothing and home products.

Quick Prime Day Hacks

  1. Get the Amazon app so you can watch deals. Be sure to turn your notifications on, especially for lightening deals.
  2. Put items in your shopping cart ahead of time. This is an oldie, but goodie. Usually you will see leaks of potential items set for Prime Day, once you have gathered an idea of what you may purchase, go ahead and add them to your cart and check-out once the deals are live.
  3. Ask Alexa to reveal deals early, and use it to shop.
  4. Use CamelCamelCamel to find out if you’re getting the best deal. Just because it’s Prime Day doesn’t always mean that you are getting the best deal. Other stores will likely have MAJOR sales to rival Prime Day. Be sure to always check your options to save the most.
  5. Get on the waitlist for sold out Lightning Deals. Often times lightening deals sell out quick, the good news is that Amazon does offer waitlists for items, so be sure to check this out!
