How to Get The Most Out of Amazon Prime Day

Amazon's Prime Day is a summer version of Cyber Monday, beginning 9PM Eastern Time on Monday July 10th. The best way to reap the benefits of Prime Day if you aren't already a Prime member is to sign up for an Amazon Prime 30-Day Free Trial. Students can also get a free 6 month membership to Prime Student for college students. For 30 hours leading up to Prime Day Amazon will be announcing new deals as often as every 5 minutes.


Those who have Alexa can listen to deal announcements. You can also check your wish list to see if anything is on sale. To monitor deals without Alexa, set up Amazon Assistant on your desktop computer, or download the Amazon App to use your mobile device.
