3 things you can do to prepare for Prime Day

Look for early sales and deals

If you already know what you want, it’s best to start looking on Amazon as soon as possible. That way, you’ll get an idea of prices and deals, and you might even stumble upon a few sales before Prime Day.

Add items to your cart

As soon as you start browsing Amazon for the stuff you want, it’s a good idea to add things to your cart as you go along, even if you’re not sure you want them. That way, you can decide later, and if you don’t want something you threw in your cart, you can remove it before you check out. Also, there’s no worse feeling than finding a hot deal only to discover that the item is sold out once you’ve decided to buy it.

Turn on alerts for items you want

Did you know you can turn on alerts on virtually any Amazon product? The feature will let you know when a specific item goes on sale. For example, if you turn on an alert on a basketball hoop, Amazon will send you a notification directly to your phone as soon as it goes on sale, letting you get the jump on other shoppers looking for the same thing.
