Is Prime worth the yearly subscription?
If you order 10 Prime products during the year and with FREE shipping, you have paid for your yearly membership. Or watch Prime movies or Prime tv shows. Or upload Prime books and magazines. There are so many ways to enjoy Prime and enjoy FREE items. So, in one word, YES!!
What Deals Can I Expect on Prime Day?
Last year, Amazon’s own products had the best discounts. The Echo speaker dropped by 50 percent, while the smaller Echo Dot was given a $15 discount. That’s when I purchased my Echo Dot. Because of the deal, the Dot became the most-bought item of the day. I can’t wait to see what the discount will be for the new Echo Show.
Use the Amazon App to Notify You of Deals
Be sure to grab the Amazon app to get sneak peeks on what will be on sale. Also, watch for the Lightning Deals. Every day, Amazon offers a limited number of products at really good discounts. The quantity of any item is limited, and deals are only available for a short amount of time. You can also watch items to see when they do go on sale.
To get deals even earlier, check with your Amazon Alexa device. All you do is just say “Alexa, what are your deals?” If you hear something you want, just say “Alexa, add [item] to my cart.” You never have to leave your couch to enjoy Prime Day shopping.
Use the Amazon Assistant Extension for Deals
Amazon offers a browser extension which is available for Chrome, Firefox, Safari, and Microsoft Edge called Amazon Assistant. Never miss a deal and keep up with your orders. You will get desktop notifications on deals you watch and $5 off Prime Day orders of $25 or more. You can download it FREE HERE.
