Amazon Prime is a game-changer: For $12.99 a month, Prime members get free, fast delivery on Prime items, exclusive music, movies and TV shows on Prime Video and Prime Music and Prime-only discounts on tons of brands and items. One additional perk is scoring extra big savings and exclusive deals on Prime Day, and this year’s is just around the corner.
How It Works
From July 15-16, all prime members get to shop deals on everything from gadgets and kitchen appliances to groceries and clothing. You can shop for products already available on Amazon at a discounted price, plus take advantage of Prime Day Launches, aka new products available exclusively to Prime members for a limited time.
You’ll get more savings if you use Amazon’s app. Get a $10 Amazon credit when you sign into the app for the first time (and another $10 after you buy something through the app), score $10 off your next order of $50+ by installing Amazon Assistant on your computer (it gives you desktop notifications about deals you’re watching), spend $10 at Whole Foods (in-store or on Prime Now) from July 3-16 to get $10 for Prime Day and more.

How to Prepare
All you have to do to participate is sign up for Prime or register for a free 30-day trial. Then, download the free Amazon app to see the deals and shop. While all the details of what’s actually on sale are only released once the event starts, you can prepare by clicking “Watch this deal” on items you’re interested in via the app. You’ll also be able to search specifically for products with a Prime Day Deal once Prime Day starts, plus get sneak peek alerts about deals before they’re offered up.
