7 Ways to Get the Most Out of Prime Day

05 July 2017 by - MelodySusie

Amazon has officially announced that this year’s prime day is July 11th. It starts at 9 p.m. Eastern time on July 10thand lasts until 3 a.m. on July 12th.

Started in 2015, Amazon Prime Day offers special deals in the middle of the summer. Amazon Prime Day 2016 led to the company’s biggest day ever. This year is expected to be even better. 

What you can get on Prime Day:

- Free 2-day shipping

- Greatest deals of the year

- Early access to sales and deals

- Much more….


To get the most savings on the hottest products of Prime Day, here are 7 key things you should do:

1: Sign Up for Prime Amazon (If you haven’t already).

Amazon Prime Day is only open to members of the Prime membership program, so if you’re not a Prime member yet, you should definitely test out their 30-day free trial to take advantage of this awesome sales day. Prime Membership is normally $99-a-year (or $10.99 a month) and it includes a video streaming service similar to Netflix.

2: Set a Calendar reminder and shop early

While the official Prime Day is July 11th, the event will last for 30 hours in total. Set some reminder alarms on your phone so you won’t miss out on any of the action. Here are the MelodySusie sale dates and times to schedule.


3: Research deals before it begins

Deals offered will be released on July 9th at 9 p.m. Eastern time, or 24 hours before they go live. That’ll allow Prime members to see what’s on sale and to make a plan beforehand. Some sellers are also doing pre-sales for Prime Day.

Check out our list of pre-sales here: 

4: Reload your Prime Gift Card

Amazon Prime members get a 2% bonus when reloading their gift card balance from their bank accounts. If you’re planning on buying an expensive item, you may want to take advantage of this offer. Load the amount of money you’ll need onto your gift card and then you can use your 2 percent bonus on Amazon Prime Day.

5: Turn On 1-Click Ordering

1-Click ordering lets Prime members make super-fast purchases. When this feature is turned on, you can click the buy button once and the item is automatically charged and shipped based on the payment method and address in your Amazon account. This will be extremely useful during Prime Day to make sure buy what you want before stock runs out.

6: Keep an Eye on Lightning Deals.

Amazon offers a variety of good deals throughout the event, but occasionally a lightning deal will occur. These special sales will not last for the whole Prime day, but only be live for a little while and can come as fast as every five minutes, so make sure to keep your eyes open for them.


7: Don’t Hesitate.

A huge number of shoppers will also be taking advantage of Amazon Prime Day this year, so if there’s an item you really want shop as early as it starts. All items are on a first-come, first-served basis.

However, if you really missed out, Amazon does offer a wait list that allows customers to wait in line in case someone cancels their order or more products become available.

Finally, wish you all a Happy Prime Day! Remember to follow MelodySusie and our Amazon Store and find out more about our Prime Day Deals!
