💜 I will update this page with deals as I can on 10/13 & 10/14💜
Are you ready to shop? Are you ready to SAVE money? The holidays are just about here. Why not save money while shopping!
Enter—- drum roll— Amazon Prime Day 2020!
It has arrived! Yay! Cue the confetti. 🎉🎊
If you are not familiar with Amazon Prime Days, it is a once a year massive Black Friday type sale on Amazon. You can shop from hundreds of thousands of items that are on sale for one to two days only.
This year Prime Day will run from October 13th at 12:00 am PST to October 14th at 11:59 pm PST. 48 hours of non-stop deals!
Are you as excited as I am?
What kind of deals should you expect from Prime Day?
No one knows exactly. We all find out at the same time. The best thing to do is to be prepared for anything.
My goal is to help you prepare, do some of the work for you, and help you save as much as you can.
First, let’s get prepared
1. If you don’t already have Prime, then you will want to sign up for a FREE 30-day trial.
Yes, the trial is FREE if you haven’t signed for it yet or it has been a while since you signed up for it. It is required to get the Prime Day deals.
When you sign up for the trial it will automatically renew and charge you for a full year after the 30 days. Make sure you make yourself a reminder to cancel or cancel right after signing up if you are worried you might forget (been there, done that, more then once). Even if you cancel right after signing up, you will still get the full 30 days to try it out.
Before you do cancel, check out all the additional benefits that come with your Amazon Prime membership and see if it is worth it to you.
They now have a monthly option as well if you just want to continue to use it between now and the end of the year and now be stuck with the big yearly fee.
2. Make a wish list
I am constantly adding things to my wish list all year round. Throughout Prime Day I scan my lists to see if any of the prices have dropped.
If you want to go one step further for the things you really want (or all of the things you want), you can actually put items in your cart and then save for later. The items then show up just under your cart for super easy access.
3. Download the Amazon app
Deals come and go all day long. Having the app on your phone will allow you to check for sales quicker and faster than jumping on your computer when you have a few minutes of downtime. (Downtime, what’s that?)
1. Look for Lightning Deals
Amazon has something called Lightning Deals and the deals come and go as quick as lightning, well, almost. They are quick and if you miss it, it is gone.
When you see a lightning deal there is a timer and a bar that shows what percent of these deals have been claimed and what percent is still available before they sell out.
If the deal sells out before you are able to snag it, you can choose to go on the waitlist. Most of the time I have been on the waitlist I have been able to still snag the deal. This is because once you claim it you have 15 minutes to purchase it or the deal is released back to others waiting.
2. Download Camelcamelcamel
This browser extension will allow you to compare the price of the items you are looking at over the past prices on Amazon. You can see if you are really getting a good deal or not.
3. Download Honey
Honey works a lot like Camelcamelcamel but has a lot more features such as searching for coupon codes at checkout. I will be writing a whole blog post on it shortly but in the meantime, check it out to maximize your savings.
4. Choose slow shipping
When you are checking out, look at your shipping options. Many times there is a choice for slow shipping (usually delivered within a week). If you don’t need the item quickly, you can score credit for different things on Amazon. Usually digital credits for digital downloads but I have seen other things offered as well.
Deal time – Personalized deals for you
To save you some time I went through and found some things that most likely will be on sale this Prime Day. I don’t guarantee any of the items will be on sale but looking at data from last year and what is hot this year I scouted out what I thought you might like.
