#1 You Must Be A Prime Member

You need to be an Amazon Prime member.  This includes their free trial.  Go ahead and sign up to experience Prime day through the trial and if you love it, keep the membership. Check my last post to learn about all of the amazing features you get with Prime.


#2 Ebates

Ebates is an amazing service that helps you earn cash back on websites you shop on.  I’ve been using it for a couple years and it’s definitely worth it!  Head on over to to sign up for a free account.  On Prime day sign into your account and follow the link over to Amazon.  This will track your purchases so you earn your rewards!  Right now Amazon purchases can get up to 5% back.

#3 Download The App

I’ve found that the Amazon App is the best way to shop Prime deals.  There’s also an option to receive a notification once the deal goes live.  That way you’ll be able to quickly add the item into your cart and check out right away.  Remember Prime gives you free 2-day shipping, so if you are making multiple purchases you won’t have to pay multiple shipping fees.  PS– Prime deals are already available on the app for sneak peak, go check them out and mark your favorites!

#4 Install Amazon Assistant

Prefer to use your desktop to shop rather than your phone?  No problem!  Amazon has you covered here, too.  Amazon Assistant is available on select browsers to help you shop smarter and save more.  What this feature does is it compares items you’re viewing on other websites, to items on Amazon’s sites.  It also allows you to be notified when specific items you’re watching on Amazon go on sale.  Signing up saves you $5 off a $25 purchase.

#5 Research & Make Holiday Lists

Christmas in July?!  Prime day is a really great opportunity to get your holiday shopping out of the way.  Do your research, make lists for your loved ones, and set up your notifications!  You will probably be glad you did once December rolls around.. 🙂
