We are all used to the frenzied actions of bargain hunters when it comes to Black Friday, but now there’s a new date in the shopping calendar – Amazon Prime Day.
What is Amazon Prime Day?
Amazon Prime Day is an online shopping event that is similar to Black Friday but exclusive to Amazon and reserved only for those customers who have an active Amazon Prime account. It will starts on July 11th and this is the third time it has been held.
You can expect massive savings on all kinds of goods but in particular electronics will feature highly. If you are the sort of person that loves a bargain then Amazon Prime Day should be just up your street.
And if you are not signed up to Amazon Prime, don’t worry, you can become a member and participate in all these deals for just £59, which is £20 off the usual £79 membership fee. You can always of course sign up for a 30 day free trial and cancel after the event.
How to keep track of Amazon Prime Day bargains
Here are several different ways in which you can follow the bargains:
Get the Amazon Shopping App
Available on both Android and iOS, this is the easiest way of keeping track of the best bargains on the day. You can set alerts for certain items, look at the best deals of the day and if you fancy something in particular set the ‘Watch this deal’ button under the product.
If you own Alexa then why not ask her to provide you with the best deals as all Amazon’s Echo devices will be the first to know. Just ask her what you want to know. So for example ‘Alexa, what are the best tablet deals on Amazon Prime day?’
Get the Amazon Assistant to send alerts
If you happen to be working on the day and you cannot keep looking on the Amazon Prime Day page then get the Amazon Assistant to do all the work for you. The assistant is a browser add-on that will let you know in real-time the best deals.
Log onto the Amazon Facebook page
In previous Amazon Prime Days they have posted extra deals on their social media page so it makes sense to keep it open and look in from time to time.
What deals can you expect on Amazon Prime Day?
The shopping event will take place over a total of 30 hours and features heavily discounted products, non-stop deals and tons of unmissable bargains.
