Amazon Prime Day, an annual shopping event for members of Prime, will be on July 1
We are still two weeks away from the big event that is sold in the middle of the summer, and although some good deals have already begun, there are some things you can do to get the best deals for you and your family. Here are a few ways to make sure you are a professional in using Amazon before Prime Day.
Share your benefits
There is no need to pay a full price for multiple major accounts in your household if someone already has one. You can share with another adult and you can even give your kids access (the kids will need your permission for any purchases). You will share the same benefits as a free next day or two day delivery and an initial video streaming.
Use the 30 day free trial
If you only want to use Amazon for First Day deals, then sign up for a 30 day free trial. You will have the same benefits as paying primary users for the entire trial. You can always cancel after the first day is over to avoid membership fees – set a calendar reminder if you plan to cancel.
Log in waiting list
Typically, a popular product with a nice sales label will go shopping carts quickly. However, buyers are given 15 minutes to check, and if they are not at this point, the item will be removed from their carts. To secure your place in the next available item, you must join the waiting list group. While you are waiting, check again to see if the item has become available.
You can also sign up for Amazon alerts so you will not miss a deal with Prime Day.
Check Pre-Purchase History
Make sure you actually get the best deal by checking the pricing history of the item you are thinking of buying. You can use a site like Camelcamelcamel or Keepa to track the history of the prices of each item you want to buy. Sites will even warn you when the price drops. You can also check PriceBlink to see if prices are cheaper in another store.
Get a Student or Medicaid Discount
If you are a student or have Medicaid, you can get a discount on Amazon Prime. So instead of paying $ 13 each month, you'll pay $ 6. You will need to confirm that you are eligible by submitting the relevant documentation. If you are a student, you can scan a copy of your copy or student name. For the Medicaid rebate you will enter your EBT number and send an image to the card – or send the Medicaid documentation.
Consider the Amazon credit card
Sign up for the Amazon credit card if you make a big purchase. You can earn 5% in cash when you buy Amazon, but you will also need Prime membership. There is no annual credit card charge, and the profit margin is unlimited.
Jumping two-day shipping
Amazon offers you awards if you opt for a free delivery without a quick delivery to the cashier instead of the standard two-day delivery. Once you add an appropriate item to your cart, you'll see delivery options, such as one-day delivery, Amazon's day shipping, and delivery without a fast delivery. The prizes will vary depending on the item you choose. You can redeem your digital media awards, such as music, eBooks, and apps.
