Get your credit cards ready because Amazon Prime Day (aka one of the biggest and most anticipated shopping days of the year) is quickly approaching and will feature major deals on the best beauty, fashion, home, and tech products.
The sale, which is available only to Prime members (click here to try a 30-day free trial!), will begin on July 16 at 12 p.m. PT with deals dropping throughout the day until July 18 at 12 a.m. PT. Want to make the most out of the 36-hour shopping window? Below, we share our five best tips to make the most of the sale.
Download the Amazon app
The best way to not get lost in the shopping frenzy is to set up a game plan. Make a list of your must-have items by previewing some of the deals on the Amazon app. Simply tap the menu icon and click “Today’s Deals” and select “Upcoming.” You can then use the filtering feature to choose the categories you’re most interested in and set up notifications so you know exactly when deals go live.
Install the Amazon Assistant plug-in
Download the plug-in on Safari or Chrome and you’ll get notified when deals go live — plus, save $5 off any Prime Day buy that costs $25 or more!
If you have an Alexa-enabled device, you’re in luck because Amazon is offering special deals that can only be accessed by asking Alexa. Just ask, “Alexa, what are my Prime Day deals?”
Share your Prime benefits
Amazon allows you to share your Prime membership perks with an adult in your household, which means there’s one more person to help you keep an eye out for the best deals (it’s a win-win!).
Check back regularly
Deals are constantly changing, so keep checking to see what other deals you can score. We also recommend using Amazon’s search bar to see if specific items you’re eyeing are going on sale.
