HOW TO SHOP AMAZON PRIME DAY LIKE A PRO!
There is nothing I love more than a good sale (well I love A LOT of things, but c'mon - sales are amazing!)! Amazon is one of my go-to places to shop and this year Amazon Prime Day is TWO DAYS - a whole 48 HOURS! This exclusive event is available to Amazon Prime Members (sign up or start a free 30-day trial) and has so many great products that you can stock up on for yourself, or save for later as gifts for birthdays or even, gasp, CHRISTMAS! You can find anything from Alexa-enabled devices and other smart home products to vacuum cleaners to Instant Pots, even household supplies and groceries from Amazon Pantry and Amazon Fresh (aka Unlimited grocery delivery for $14.99/month - you can try a free trial by clicking HERE)! To make life a bit easier, you can download the free Amazon app to preview and shop deals and set a reminder with Alexa so you don't miss out on the deals! Prime Day is on July 15 and 16 and kicks off at 12am PT on the 15th! Prime Day Whole Foods deals and Prime Day Twitch deals (Twitch is the world's leading social video game platform and community for gamers, video game culture, and the creative arts - you can try a free trial by clicking HERE) have even started already. There will even be new products JUST for Prime members, for a limited time, which really excites me! And if shopping on Amazon isn't enough for you! other retailers tend to drop prices during Prime Day, so you'll also find the best anti-Prime Day sales from eBay, Walmart, Best Buy, and more! (I will definitely be shopping Target Deal Days - surprise surprise, it also takes place on July 15 and 16!)
KEEP IN MIND: Unfortunately, you must be an Amazon Prime member to shop all of the amazing Prime Day deals. However, there is a workaround: Amazon offers a free Prime membership trial for 30 days, which you can sign up for, take advantage of Prime Day, and afterward, either cancel your trial before your 30 days run out, or you can keep your membership and pay $119 per year.
*** Do keep in mind that you won’t qualify for the free trial if you’ve canceled a Prime membership in the last 12 months. If you are one of these people, and you don't anticipate that you will keep using the membership, I would suggest just getting the one month membership for $12.99 (just remember to cancel it before the next month begins!).
*** IF YOU HAVE A FRIEND THAT WOULD LOVE TO SHOP THE PRIME DAY DEALS, FEEL FREE TO GIVE THE GIFT OF PRIME!
PRO TIP #1: "Watch" the deals you like: Tap WATCH THIS DEAL on items to get an alert when they go on sale on Prime Day.
PRO TIP #2: If you want to grab an extra $10 in credit, adding the Amazon Assistant browser extension will give you extra credit when you spend $50 or more.
