5.) Shop the Amazon Prime Day Deals Early
If you are wondering exactly when is Amazon Prime Day, it’s officially July 11th, however the deals will be starting on Monday Night July 10th, at 9pm EST which is early for some of you on the west coast so be ready to shop the night before because that’s when the lightning deals will start going live.

Did you know you can actually get FREE Credits to spend on Amazon just by doing a few simple things BEFORE Prime Day Starts! I’ve posted about them on our Amazon Prime Day Deals Page, but here’s a quick round up:
- FREE $10 Credit when you add $30 in Amazon Cash to your Account
- FREE $10 Credit for Spending $10 at Whole Foods
- FREE $10 Credit when you Reload a Gift Card with $100 or more
If you do all 3 of those you’ll have $30 in FREE MONEY to spend on Prime Day! My Favorite is the $10 Credit when you load $30 on your account at a local store, this is really simple to do and it’s Free Money!
Right now when you spend $10 at Whole Foods and scan your Amazon Prime Barcode in the Whole Foods App you’ll get a FREE $10 credit to Spend on Prime Day!
Note: to get your barcode you just need to download the Whole Foods App and Log In!
Here’s a deal you probably haven’t heard a lot about! You can get $10 off any $40 or more Prime Pantry Order + You’ll get a FREE 30 Day Trial of Prime Pantry!
Prime Pantry lets you get FREE Unlimited Shipping on any size order from Amazon Prime Pantry, which means you can order exactly what you need without hitting the grocery store, no more buying in bulk from Amazon and you don’t pay per box, it’s one low monthly rate.
Amazon offers Free Sample Boxes, you buy the box, then get an equal credit to spend on a future purchase of any item in the box! These are a great way to try new products and there are currently 12 sample boxes available for Amazon Prime Day!
10.) Stack Amazon Coupons with Subscribe and Save
Last year we saw some AMAZING Amazon coupons for up to 35% off select items (including diapers) stacking those sales with Subscribe and Save and ordering at least 5 items so you get the 15% Discount meant up to 50% off so make sure you’re paying attention and if possible grab 5 items on Subscribe and Save to get the biggest discount.
PRO TIP: If you order less than 5 items the discount is only 5%, so the best sales are found when you combine coupons + the 5 items in the same month
11.) Sign Up for Amazon Services like Audible & Kindle Unlimited
If you have been thinking about signing up for Audible or Kindle Unlimited, this is a great time to join! You can save over 60% When you sign up for Audible right now, You’ll pay only $4.95 per month for your First Three Months, that’s SUPER CHEAP especially if you compare the prices of Audio Books to a Monthly Subscription!
12.) Shop the Daily Deals BEFORE Prime Day
Technically Amazon Prime Day is July 17th, but the Deals start at 3pm on Monday July 16th! So be watching early for the best savings + Don’t Forget we have a lot of great Amazon Prime Day Deals already posted that you can grab right now!
13.) Watch For Lightning Deals & “Watch” Your Favorite Deals
The BEST Amazon Prime Day Deals will be lightning deals, that means they will go fast. Check out the Lightning Deal Page Here frequently and click “Watch” on your favorite deals so you’ll be notified when they go live.
14.) Join the “Waitlist” If you miss a deal!
This is probably the MOST IMPORTANT tip I can give you, if you miss a lightning deal that you really wanted, make sure you click “Join Waitlist” As fast as possible, everyone that has that item in their cart will have 15 minutes to check out, if they don’t complete their purchase the item goes to the next person on the waitlist. Leave your Amazon Browser open and shop around, a box will pop up when it’s your turn to add the item to your cart, then you have 15 minutes to checkout!
15.) Shop the Warehouse Deals
Amazon will be offering an additional 20% off Select Brands including SOnos, Le Creuset, Crock-pot, Samsung, TV’s, Amazon Tap, Fire HD Tablets and More that are in the Warehouse. These items are already marked down so that additional 20% off will be huge!!! See all the Qualifying Amazon Warehouse Deals Here.
