Amazon Prime Day Bootcamp
Oh boy oh boy oh boy…. Amazon Prime Day Deals are just a few weeks away and we want you to be READY TO WIN AT THIS!
Welcome to our Prime Day Boot Camp – where we've got the best tips for snagging the hottest deals on all the Prime Day offerings (Step #1 is to Sign up for a FREE Trial of Amazon Prime Here!)
Check out the TOP 5 tips we've gleaned from the last 5 years of Prime Day events:
What is Amazon Prime Day anyway?
Amazon Prime Day is one of the BIGGEST online shopping events of the year and has been going since 2015. It's basically a summertime Black Friday that ONLY happens for Amazon Prime members. (Get a 1-Month Trial Here) It goes from Tuesday October 11 at 12am PT – through Wednesday October 12 at midnight. (Basically REALLY late Monday Night to REALLY late Wednesday night!)
Prime Day deals can range from tvs and Instant Pots, to trash bags and granola bars. You can pretty much expect EVERYTHING under the sun to be eligible for a big prime day discount.
Here are my top 5 Tips to make you feel like an Amazon Prime Day rockstar!

2 . Get Free Credits to Spend on Prime Day
In the summer Prime day sale, we saw a TON of FREE CREDIT promotions almost daily. No word yet if the fall sale will have these same credits, but here are the ones we spotted this summer:
Get $10 Credit when you spend $10 at Small Business
Get $10 Credit when you buy $40 Prime Day Giftcard*SOLD OUT AT THE MOMENT
Get $10 Credit using Amazon Assistant
Get $3 Credit for signing up for Panera Rewards
Get $150 Amazon Credit if approved for Amazon Visa Rewards Card
Get $15 Credit with $50 Amazon Giftcard Purchase
Get $5 Credit for Texting an Amazon Giftcard
Get all the details about these Prime Day Credits here– if we spot them for fall we will definitely let you know!
3 . Know Which Deals To Avoid on Prime Day
Amazon will be really hyping ALL their deals on Prime Day – but unless something is a REALLY good deal you may want to hold off. First of all – Black Friday & Cyber Monday are just around the corner and we'll see oodles of sales then too – this is not your last chance for a deal! Secondly – stick to your budget and don't get swept up by FOMO! (Fear of missing out…)
Bonus Tip: If you REALLY want to be able to see the price history of an Amazon item – download the Keepa Browser Extension for Amazon. (It's what our deal team uses!) It tracks the price history of each product so you can see if it's a good deal!
4 . Get Deals FIRST!
Sometimes things sell out FAST on Prime Day – so having an edge can help you score the best of the best deals before they're gone! Here are three ways to get a jump:
Add Your Most-Wanted Items To “Your List”
If there’s something you want to buy “add it to a list” to get notified if it goes on sale. 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!
Alexa Voice Shoppers Get Early Deals
Customers shopping with devices powered by Alexa (like an Echo or Echo Dot) can get access to select deals starting June 18.
Stalk Lightning Deals Early
On the eve of Amazon Prime Day 2021, check and see what upcoming lightning deals are headed your way. You can sort by category (Electronics, Health & Beauty, Etc…) and that way you'll be prepared for the flash sales that end fast. If using the Amazon App: If you find an upcoming deal you're interested in – click “WATCH THIS DEAL” and you'll get an alert when it goes live! This feature isn't available on desktop.
Don't ignore the Waitlist!
If a Lightning Deal you want sells out super fast, sign up for the waitlist! Often times items aren't “sold out” they're just in everyone's cart. But lots of people change their mind and remove items from their cart, and then you'll be alerted so you can buy it at the Lightning Deal price 🙂
5 . Watch for Extra Coupon Savings!
In addition to sales for Prime Day – we will also be seeing extra coupons on many items! If you're not sure how to find the coupon on an item page – just look under the price for the Coupon Box. Some coupons are only available if you are choosing Subscribe & Save (And some are only visible if you choose one-time purchase!)
Want to see ALLLL the coupons? Head over here and search by brand, newest to oldest, or highest value!
