How to Do the Most on Prime Day 2017

  1. Ok, I know I said to be a member already but seriously no deals for you if you’re not an Amazon Prime Member.

    Don’t forget you can add another adult in the household to your account and they get the same benefits are you for no extra charge. Not even gonna lie…I share my account with my BFF who lives across town. She just added her own shipping/payment info when she accepted my invitation to join my household.

  1. Download the Amazon App.

    If you do that you’ll never miss any Amazon Prime Day deals. After Prime Day, you’ll still get the hottest deals on items you’re interested in! Just go to Today’s Deals and click “Upcoming” to view all deals 24 hours before they are live, and then tap “Watch this deal.” The app will alert you when that deal is starting.

  2. If you really wanna be the Real MVP of Prime Day…set up the Amazon Assistant on your desktop.

    You’ll get real-time notification about items on your list and new deals!

  3. Clip Your Coupons.

    Did you know that Amazon totally has coupons? I never make a purchase without checking to see if they have a coupon. I usually just clip all that I’d use just in case!

How to Find the Prime Day Deals

  1. Shop early.

    Deals start 9 ET on July 10th. (Start watching deals on July 9—24 hours before they are live! New deals start as often as every 5 minutes for 30 hours straight.)

  1. If you miss a deal, join the waitlist.

    If an item shows “100% claimed,” click the “Join Waitlist” button on the product page. If additional items become available, you’ll receive a notification on your mobile device.
