(Did you read the story of the woman who pranked her husband for April Fool’s Day by saving Amazon boxes for six months from their family and relatives and then set them all out on April Fool’s Day!)
How to Get the Best Deals on Amazon Prime Day
Amazon Prime Day is coming on July 15-16, 2019. And this year, it looks like it’s going to be better than ever!
Not only is Amazon promising to offer amazing deals (last year, the Prime Day deals were on par with Black Friday week!), but a number of other companies are also jumping on the bandwagon and trying to be competitive with the deals Amazon is offering.
Guess what that means for us? More deals and more savings!
I predict that on July 15-16, 2019 we’ll see a flurry of deals similar to what we usually see on Black Friday week. Because of this, I want to help you prepare accordingly so you can save the most money.
5 Ways to Prepare for Amazon Prime Day
To help you prepare well to maximize your savings for Amazon Prime Day Deals, here are 5 strategies I suggest:
1. Sign up for a free 30-day trial to Amazon Prime.
Not an Amazon Prime member? No worries, now is the perfect time to sign up for a FREE 30-day trial. This way, you’ll get all of the benefits of Prime and be able to take advantage of the deals, but you want have to pay for a Prime subscription. At the end of the 30 days, just be sure to go into your account and cancel your subscription and you won’t be charged!
2. Subscribe to my hot deals email newsletter.
Did you see that I just launched a brand-new Hot Deals Email Newsletter? When you sign up, I’ll send you no more than 1-2 emails each day featuring the hottest and best deals hand-picked by me as soon as they become available.
This way, you won’t have to wait for the daily enewsletter to go out in the afternoon; you can jump on the hottest deals right away!
I’ll be sending out two email newsletters both days on Monday and Tuesday featuring only the BEST deals that are my top picks.
3. Follow me on Instagram
If you’re not already following me on Instagram, I would LOVE for you to head over here and hit the follow button. One of my favorite things is getting to personally share deals I find and am excited about in IG stories (plus, I share lots of other behind-the-scenes stuff and my grocery shopping hauls!
On Amazon Prime Day, I’ll be hopping onto IG stories multiple times throughout the day telling you about the best deals that I am most excited about!
4. Follow our Facebook Page & Facebook Group
My team will be posting all the deals all day long on our Facebook Page and Facebook Group. Plus, I’ll be popping on throughout the day to do live videos covering some of my favorite deals.
I think you could link to the post I did today and tell people to gather their gift cards and/or cash out for gift cards in their apps if they want to use them to spend on Prime Day.
5. Make a List & a Budget
If you haven’t done so already, be sure to make a list of the items you are most interested in buying, as well as the budget you have to spend. This way, you don’t just jump on a good deal because it’s “such a good deal”, when it’s not something you need or can afford.
Want to stretch your dollars even further? Now is the time to cash out your free Amazon gift cards or spend some time this weekend earning some extra Amazon gift cards. (Psst! A super easy way to earn a $5 Amazon Gift Card is by signing up for Shopkick and then scanning one item listed in their app if you’re out shopping this weekend.)
