It’s Amazon Prime Day, are you ready to buy? This annual shopping event usually happens in July, but it was delayed to today and tomorrow this year. This two-day thing is massive and there are tons of deals out there, so it’s easy to get overwhelmed. To help us find the bargains, Sara Skirboll, a shopping and trends expert at Retail Me Not, is here with tips and tricks for navigating Prime Day like a pro.
- Be ready when the festivities begin and check back often – There are limited quantities of the best bargains and while Prime members get advanced notice, if you want one of those big screen 4K TVs, Skirboll warns to “be ready to pounce” before they’re all gone.
- Create your own wish list – Then Amazon will let you know if anything on your list becomes a Prime Day deal.
- Keep Lightning Deals on your radar – These are super-limited offers that don’t last long. Once you put a lightning deal in your cart, you only have about 15 minutes to check out.
- Amazon isn’t the only one offering deals on Prime Day – While Prime Day is exclusive to Amazon, competitors want your money, too, so they’re discounting items online to entice you to spend with them. Retail Me Not found 200 retailers getting in on Prime Day action last year, so you may want to shop around.
