Tips for Getting the Best Amazon Prime Day Deals in 2022
Need tips on how to navigate Prime Day and access the biggest savings? Look no further:
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 have a .edu email address, you qualify 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 the 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.
The Amazon Assistant browser extension can help you watch Prime Day deals from your PC while you are online and helps you easily compare the prices of items on Amazon and 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. 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.
6. If you miss a deal, join the waitlist.
If an item is 100 percent 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.
