Amazon Prime Day: How to Get the Best Deals

Who’s ready for the third annual Amazon Prime Day? You can read Amazon’s official insider guide, but here’s the short list of things to know for the epic day of online sales.

– This year, Amazon Prime Day starts Monday, July 10th, at 6 pm PT / 9 pm ET and will last a full 30 hours. You can view new deals here  as often as every five minutes.

– In order to get the Prime Day deals, you have to be a Prime member. If you aren’t a member already, you can sign up for a free 30-day trial.

– Be prepared by downloading the Amazon app. From there, you can go to “Today’s Deals” and click “Upcoming” to view all deals 24 hours before they go live. Tap “Watch this deal”, and the app will alert you when that deal starts.

– You can also download Amazon Assistant to help you watch deals from your PC.

– If you miss a deal, click the “Join Waitlist” button to receive notification if that deal becomes available.

I’ll be starting a special Amazon Prime Day thread on our Facebook page with live updates as geeky finds come up. Grab some coffee, and follow along. I’ll be up all night sharing deals.
