Amazon Prime Day may be a made-up holiday invented by the retail behemoth, but it’s surely something worth celebrating.
For a day or two each year, Prime members get exclusive access to hundreds of thousands of deals on the site. While Amazon Prime offers many perks, Prime Day’s serious savings may be enough of a reason on its own for you to snag a membership. If you don’t have one already, you should sign up for a free 30-day trial sometime before Prime Day.
You should also consider downloading the app so you can stay ahead of deals. The Amazon app is one of the quickest, easiest ways to prep for Prime Day. It allows you to see deals before they go live, and will alert you when the deal you’re interested in goes live. This is useful all year round, but is particularly helpful on Prime Day when daily deals offer even steeper discounts and change out more frequently.
Below, I’ll walk you through exactly how to use the app to make sure you never miss a Prime Day deal when July 15 rolls around.
Most deals won’t drop until July 15, but there’s no such thing as being too prepared. In addition to our breakdown of how to use the app below, we’ve got you covered with everything you need to know about Amazon Prime Day 2019 — including some great deals our readers loved last year and some predictions we think people will be excited about this year, too.
How to use the Amazon app on Prime Day:
Download the Amazon app
To begin, you need the app. Download it in the app store then log into your Prime account.
This app will be the key to making sure you never miss a good deal this Prime Day.
Head over to the “Upcoming” deals
Open the app and drop down the toolbar on the left-hand side. Click “Today’s Deals” and then “Upcoming” — this will let you view all deals 24 hours before they go live.
Choose the deals you want to keep an eye on
Scroll through the deals and tap “Watch this Deal” on any items you’re interested in. The app will alert you when these deals go live.
Watch your deals and get ready to buy
Click the “Watching” tab at any time to see how long you have until your deals drop. Now, all you have to do is wait for a notification telling you your deals are live.
With hundreds of thousands of deals, and new ones constantly dropping, it can be hard to keep track of everything you want to buy on Prime Day — unless you use the Amazon app, that is. It’s a great tool to keep organized and get ahead of the Prime Day chaos — because Prime Day certainly is just as hectic as your average shopping holiday, even though there are no lines.
