How to Prepare for Amazon Prime Day

Amazon Prime Day is a prime opportunity to snag some great deals on everything from TVs to clothes to kitchen appliances. But it can also be a bit overwhelming, with so many deals and so little time. To help you make the most of Amazon Prime Day 2022, here are a few tips to keep in mind. 

  1. Start by making a list of what you need and want.

This will help you stay focused while you’re shopping. Start following your favorite brands on social media. Many brands will post exclusive deals and discounts for Prime members on their platforms in the lead-up to Prime Day. 

  1. Set a budget for yourself and stick to it.

It’s easy to get carried away with all the great deals, but you don’t want to overspend. It can be tempting to go for the lightning deals or the Amazon Prime Day deals, but if you don’t have a budget in place, you could end up spending more than you can afford. By setting a budget and sticking to it, you’ll be able to make the most of the great deals without overspending. Prime Day 2022 is just around the corner, so now is the time to start planning your budget. With a little discipline, you can make sure that you don’t overspend on this year’s Prime Day deals.

  • Watch Amazon in the weeks leading up to Prime Day.

They often release early deals and discounts to get shoppers excited for the big event. Keep an eye out for lightning deals. These are limited-time offers that are often available for just a few hours.

  1. Ask Alexa about deals.

If you have an Amazon Echo, you can ask Alexa about Prime Day deals. She’ll be able to tell you about any upcoming deals and discounts.

  1. Download the Amazon App.

This will allow you to shop quickly and easily on your phone or tablet. These days, we are all looking for ways to save time and make our lives a little easier. If you are an Amazon shopper, downloading the Amazon App is a great way to do just that. With the app, you can shop quickly and easily on your phone or tablet. Even better, if you are a Prime member, you will enjoy exclusive benefits, such as free shipping and early access to deals, including Prime Day!

  1. Add items to your cart ahead of time.

This way, you can check out as soon as the deals go live.

     5.Finally, don’t forget to have fun!

Shopping on Prime Day is a great way to save on items you need, but it’s also a fun event. Enjoy yourself and take advantage of all the great deals!

What have been the best Prime Day deals in the past?

Some of the best deals in recent years have been on Amazon devices, such as the Kindle, Fire TV Stick, and Echo Dot. Other popular items include Instant Pots, KitchenAid mixers, GoPro cameras, and Bose headphones.

On the last Prime Day it was the biggest two-day period ever for Amazon’s third party sellers with over 175,000 sellers participating from around the world and units sold increasing more than 60% year-over-year.

The top-selling Prime Day deals in the US, excluding Amazon devices, included:

-The Instant Pot DUO60 six-quart seven-in-one multi-use pressure cooker
-23andMe DNA test kits
-iRobot Roomba 650 Robot Vacuum Cleaner
-iTunes gift cards

Will other retailers participate in Prime Day?

In the past, other retailers have tried to compete with Amazon Prime Day by offering their own sales on the same days. However, Amazon’s Prime Day is so big and popular that it’s hard for other retailers to keep up. This year, we expect to see some retailers like eBay, Best Buy and Walmart participate in Amazon Prime Day, but we don’t think anyone will be able to top Amazon’s deals.

We hope these tips help you prepare for Amazon Prime Day. Happy shopping!
