And here are a few tips on how to navigate Prime Day and have access to the biggest savings.

1. Start your 30 day free trial of Amazon Prime

If you’re not yet a member, you can try Amazon Prime free for 30 days to get access to all the Prime Day deals. Of course, you will probably become hooked on the Prime services, such as free two-day shipping and streaming movies and TV for both personal and classroom use. If you are working on your advanced degree and in possession of a .edu email address, you qualify to for Amazon Prime Student which gives you a six-month all-access free trial and then Prime for just $49 a year—half the price of a regular membership. Working teachers also get exclusive perks. You can check those out here.

2. Download the Amazon app

Download the free Amazon App to easily find the top deals during Prime Day, as well as Deal of the Day, Lightning Deals, and more sales throughout the year. Go to “Today’s Deals” and click “Upcoming” to view all deals 24 hours before they are live. Then tap “Watch this deal.” The app will alert you when your deal is starting.

3. Set up Amazon Assistant on your desktop

Amazon Assistant browser extension can help you watch Prime Day deals from your PC while you are online and helps you easily compare prices on Amazon versus elsewhere. While this browser extension can be distracting during the school year, during Prime Day  it can help you stay on top of big emerging deals.

4. Make an Amazon list

Turn your wish list into a reality! Make an official Amazon list of the items you hope will go on extreme sale for Prime Day. If these items go on sale, you will be notified through an Amazon app push notification. Score!

5. Use Your Alexa for early shopping and exclusive deals

Last year, Amazon Alexa users got a jump on the Prime Day deals, with a two-hour Alexa-exclusive shopping window before the big event. 

6. Start watching deals early

The Prime Day deals will start being revealed at amazon.com/primeday a day or two before the event begins. New deals start as often as every five minutes for 30 hours straight.

7. If you miss a deal, join the waitlist

If an item shows “100% claimed,” click the “Join Waitlist” button on the product page. Then if additional items become available, you’ll receive a notification on your mobile device through the Amazon app.
