Amazon Prime Day is here and…it’s two days now?!
It starts TODAY, July 15th, and the deals will be insane for a full 48 hours!
If you’re like me, you’re probably wondering if the deals are really worth the hype.
Amazon Prime Day is bigger than Black Friday with hundreds of thousands (I think I even heard millions), of items on sale!
So how do you know what’s a great deal and what’s a dud?!
I’m going to help you wade through the chaos and find the best deals to pick up on Prime Day this year.
The “surprise” of what will be on sale is part of the fun, but you can predict a lot of items that will be included, by studying last year’s deals.
Here are my best tips for how to take advantage of the excellent sales on Amazon Prime Day.
Sign Up for Prime!
Remember: You must be an Amazon Prime Member to shop the sales.
It’s easy to sign up, and there are year round money saving benefits to having a prime membership.
If you’re not sure about Amazon Prime, you can start your free trial here.
Shop the sale and take your new benefits for a spin. If you don’t love it, cancel after 30 days.
Plan ahead and Budget for Prime Day Purchases!
Don’t buy a bunch of things that you don’t need, or that are going to send your budget into a tailspin.
Instead, use Prime Day as a money saving way to stock up on birthday and Christmas gifts for the kids.
We got our son’s Amazon Kindle Kid’s Edition for crazy cheap a couple of years ago, and plan to pick another one up this time for our daughter.
Amazon Prime Day is a great way to get deals on items that you plan to purchase or have been saving for, but please don’t go in to debt to shop!
