Prime Day used to simply be a day to shop good deals on Amazon. However, since it was first introduced in 2015, it has grown into an all-hands-on-deck sales event that lasts more than a mere 24 hours.
If you’re serious about squeezing in all the value out of this annual sales holiday, there are a few ways you can prepare.
First — and most importantly — make sure you’re already a Prime member so you can access the deals in the first place. If you’re not, start your free 30-day trial to experience Prime Day along with other useful Prime benefits.
Next, bookmark the Insider Picks page. Throughout Prime Day, we’ll be highlighting all the best deals across the site so you don’t have to spend time researching them yourself. Visit us if you want to know about the best savings in the categories you care about, including tech, Amazon devices, home and kitchen, and back-to-school products.
Finally, use all of the following strategies to grab the deals you want, save even more money, and try new services for less. These promotions and tips aren’t exactly top-secret, but they are spread out all over the website and may be difficult to remember if you’re not paying attention.
Consider this your checklist for conquering Prime Day 2018.
Check back frequently for Insider Picks’ curated selection of the best and most up-to-date Prime Day deals to shop, and sign up here for a free 30-day trial of Amazon Prime so you can access Prime Day.
