Amazon Prime Day 2018 will begin at midday on Monday 16 July which means it's not too far away, so, are you ready for one of the biggest online shopping events, exclusively for Amazon Prime members, to begin? This includes simple things like ensuring your account is up-to-date with your correct details and knowing how to find the best deals quickly so you don't miss out on bargains. There are other things you can be doing in the lead-up to Prime Day 2018, as well as on the actual shopping day, which we've listed, in a bit more detail, below.

Get Prime Membership 

Amazon Prime


Obviously, you need to be an Amazon Prime Member to be able to access all of the deals on Prime Day and if you sign-up for Prime membership right now, you can use the 30-day free trial which means you can access all of the Prime Day deals without actually parting with any extra cash - result!


Download The Amazon Shopping App



The Amazon shopping app is available for both iOS and Android devices which means you can shop on-the-go and never miss a deal while you're away from home. With features such as push notifications on specific deals and 1-click ordering, the app makes it really easy to make purchases on Prime Day (as well as throughout the year). 


Check Billing & Shipping Information




It seems obvious but make sure your billing information is correct so you're not messing around updating delivery addresses etc. on Prime Day. You can also turn on 1-Click ordering if you want to which lets you associate a credit, debit, or AmazonStore Card with addresses you ship to frequently so you can place orders with a single click of a button. 


Get Deal Notifications & Watch Deals


Get Deal Notifications & Watch Deals


With your iPhone or Android smartphone, you can select upcoming deals and pop them on a watch list. You'll then receive notifications as soon as one of your 'watched deals' becomes available. This feature is particularly useful for lighting deals which have a specific start time.  

On desktops, you can download the Amazon Assistant so you can get notified when deals that you're watching go live. Plus, you can create wish lists, shortcuts, track your orders and create product comparisons. 


Set A Reminder 


Set a reminder


Those with echo devices can ask Alexa to remind them about Prime Day or you could just set a notification in your smartphone's calendar. (Prime Day begins at noon on Monday 16 July - just in case you've forgotten.)


Start Early

Shopping List

If there are particular items you're interested in buying, add them to your list/basket ahead of Prime Day and you'll quickly be able to see if they've been discounted or not. 


Look For The Prime Day Badge

Look For The Prime Day Badge

When you search for products over on Amazon during Prime Day, the products included in the Prime Day deals will have a Prime Day badge on them so you can easily see which items will be discounted when you're browsing through product lists. 



Browse Smartly

Amazon shopping categories


If you really want to, you can scroll through hundreds of offers but you're better off browsing by interest (we're guessing 'photography' might be a popular one with you guys) or use the category filters to drill down to the products you actually want to see/buy. 


Get Others looking For Deals


Share Prime benefits

A perk of Prime membership is that you can share some benefits of it within your household and this includes access to Prime Day shopping. A household is considered to be 'up to two adults and four children.'
