How to Get the Most Out of Amazon Prime Day

(affiliate links)

1. Sign up for Amazon Prime

This is the most important thing! Amazon Prime Day is only for Prime customers, so you can’t get the deals if you aren’t a Prime member.

Sign up for a 30-day free trial right now so you’re ready to go when Prime Day hits.

If you are a student, you can sign up for a 6-month free trial.

2. Install Amazon Assistant

If you install Amazon Assistant on your desktop you will have a better Prime Day Experience. Amazon Assistant helps you watch deals by giving you notifications throughout the day on the items you are interested in.

3. Download the Amazon App

If you prefer to watch the deals from your phone instead of a computer, download the Amazon App. Y

Once you have downloaded the app, click on “Today’s Deals & Upcoming” in order to view all deals 24 hours before they are live. If you like an item, simply click on “Watch This Deal” and the app will alert you when the sale price starts.

You can also enter “sneak peek” into the search bar to find the Prime Day Deal sneak peeks. Use the “watch this deal” feature and make sure your app notifications are turned on so you know when the deal goes live.

Note: Amazon does not say what the price will be on these deals. You’ll have to wait for them to go live to find out if it’s a good enough deal for you to actually buy it, but this is a great way to see if there are items you’ve been wanting to buy or would like to buy.

4. Add items to your wish list

If things on your wish list go on sale during Prime Day, Amazon will email you. You will want to keep a close eye on both Amazon and your email during Prime Day so you can be sure to get the great deals on the things you want most. Create your wish list here.

5. Use Alexa

If you do have an Amazon Echo or the Echo Dot, or other Alexa devices, you can ask Alexa for special Prime Day earlybird deals and she’ll give you the information. Also, both the Echo and the Echo Dot will be on sale for Prime Day for killer deals. If you’ve been wanting Alexa, get them now.

Alexa will still be able to help during the main part of the sale as well, so if you have her, use her!
