How To Shop On Amazon Prime Day 2019
1. Become A Prime Member
Are you one of the 100 million people worldwide who are prime members? If you are not, then sign for a Prime membership. Only then you can take advantage of Prime Day.
2. Decide What You Want To Buy
You are not going to buy all the items being offered on the biggest sale event. So, decide what you want to buy, and what you don’t. Compile a list or two to make shopping more efficient.
3. Download The Amazon App
It is not only useful for your mobile shopping experience, but it will be also helpful for Prime Day. The app organizes all the deals where you’ll be able to view all upcoming deals. Click “Watch this deal” to receive an alert the moment it goes live.
4. Know About Lightning Deals
During Prime Day, some deals will be available for a limited amount of time. These Lightning Deals will be available as long as supplies last. On Prime Day, these Lightning Deals will not be open to everyone. Only prime members will be offered these deals.
5. Expect Good Offers From Whole Foods
Amazon purchased Whole Foods park in 2017. In 2018, Whole Foods took part in Prime Day for the first time. Last year Prime members who spent $10 or more at Whole Foods received a $10 Amazon Prime Day credit as well as an extra 10% off select items at the stores. Expect similar, if not better, grocery deals this year too.
6. Think Beyond Amazon
There is no doubt Prime Day is a huge event. But that does not mean you should not know anti-Prime Day sales by Amazon’s competitors like Best Buy, Target, Walmart.
