 Amazon Prime Day | 12 Tips to Get the Best Deals

1 . Sign up for Amazon Prime.

You have to be a Prime member to shop Prime Day – so sign up for a FREE 30-Day Trial.  Bonus -you'll get to enjoy that Free 2-Day shipping for the whole next month 🙂

2 . Know exactly when IS Amazon Prime Day

Officially Amazon Prime Day is July 16th.  However special sales could start popping up HERE as early as today!



3. Alexa Voice Shoppers Get Early Deals

Did you know that using your voice to shop gets you extra early deals?  Customers shopping with devices powered by Alexa (like the Echo or Echo Dot) can get access to select deals earlier than the rest of us – so if you haven't yet, set up those devices to order on Amazon!

4 .  Set Deal Alerts for specific deals

Install the Amazon App to be able to set up deal alerts for specific items you're most interested in.




5 . BIG TV Deals

We've been hearing lots of buzz about Amazon Prime Day Deals – but the one thing we can definitely expect is a few HUGE deals on televisions.  If you've been planning a big TV purchase – this might be a day to keep an eye out!


6 . Prep for Lightning Deals
  • Go HERE and bookmark this page for Lightning Deals
  • Click on “UPCOMING DEALS” in the middle of the page to see what times things are coming that you don’t want to miss.
  • If  there’s something you want, add it to your cart to save yourself one little step when the deal goes live!



7 . Use that Waitlist!

If a deal you wanted says 100% claimed, don't desapair – JOIN THE WAITLIST!   There are so many times I’ve joined the waitlist and ended up getting the deal after a bunch of people backed out.



8 . Stick It On Your List

Even if you have NO IDEA what’s going to go on sale for Prime Day – go ahead and add items you’re wanting to “your list” and then when/if they go on sale, you’ll get a notification so you can hop on the deal!

If you've never added items to your list – it's easy!  Just click “Add to List” (Find it below Add to Cart – see image above).



9 . Score $$ for slow Shipping

You already get FREE 2-Day Shipping with Amazon Prime – but if you choose “No Rush Shipping” you can get a $5.95 Credit to be used towards Prime Pantry orders!

10 .  Keep one eye on, Best Buy and Target

Savvy shoppers will also be combing through Walmart's Deals Page. They'll be matching many of the Prime Day Deals – or at least trying to get your business by ramping up some sales of their own!




11. Watch the PPP Facebook Page 

Stay in the know with the PPP Facebook Page for our favorite deals – we'll be posting just the best of the best all day long
