This is a comprehensive guide to making the most out of Amazon's Prime Day.

The biggest Amazon Prime Day event is upon us.

In about a week from now, Amazon’s longest Amazon Prime Day sales extravaganza is taking off with hundreds of thousands — if not millions — of shopping deals across a wide variety of product categories.

With all these hot deals coming up, you have to know how to get your money’s worth while making purchases online. Amazon is already offering a couple of discounts on a number of items with its Prime Day Launches, and that could be a good start to rev up your shopping experience ahead of Prime Day on July 15 and 16.

Amazon itself has come out with a list of tips to shop like a pro on Prime Day.


Sign up to Prime or avail of the free trials

Before you dive in to your shopping, the first and foremost thing to do is to ensure that your are a Prime member since Prime day was created as an event exclusively for Prime members. However, if you have not subscribed to Prime yet, fret not because Amazon is offering a 30-day free trial so anyone can participate in the sales event. Meanwhile, Amazon has also partnered with Sprint to offer a Prime Student subscription, wherein students can try out a 6-month trial courtesy of Sprint. After the trial, students will only be charged $6.49 a month for their Prime Student membership.

Download the Amazon app for free

Having the Amazon app on your phone will help you keep on shopping even when you’re away from your computer. Prime Day will be held on Monday and Tuesday, when most shoppers are at school or work. When you download the Amazon app on the App Store or on Google Play, you can continue shopping even at the bus or on your train ride to work.

Ask Alexa to keep you updated

What better way to keep you posted of the Amazon sales event than with Amazon’s own voice assistant, Alexa. Tell Alexa to remind you of the upcoming Prime Day on July 15 and 16. The sales event will kick off 12 a.m. on July 15.


When the day finally comes, Amazon will open the shops to the world, announcing all the other discounts you can snag that were not included in the early Prime Day Launches and the Star-Studded Deals.

Share your Prime

The Amazon Prime Day event is a family and friends event! Make sure to invite your family to share your Prime benefits at no additional cost.

Watch the deals you like

Now that you have downloaded the Amazon app, tap on “Watch this deal” on a certain product to keep you posted whenever it finally goes on sale on Prime Day.

Shop how - and where - you want

Apart from the Amazon app, you can also check out deals on and through Alexa.

Discover Prime Day Launches

Amazon has been continuously rolling out exclusive items under Prime Day Launches before the actual Prime Day. These items have not been out to the public yet and now is your chance to snag them before everybody else does.

Check for deals on specific items

You can either do this by checking an item on, the Amazon app or through Alexa. Look for the Prime Day badge to confirm that the item is part of the Prime Day.


To celebrate this year’s Prime Day event, Amazon is offering a $10 credit when you sign in to the Amazon app for the first time, plus another $10 for your first in-app purchase.

You can also get $10 off your next order of $50 or more if you install the Amazon Assistant extension on your desktop browser.

Get a $10 bonus when you reload $100 or more to your Amazon Gift Card Balance for the first time, plus spend $10 at Amazon’s physical grocer Whole Foods Market between July 13 and 16 to get $10 on Amazon Prime Day.

Make sure to also tune in to the Prime Day Concert 2019 featuring Taylor Swift, Dua Lipa, SZA and Becky G. The concert will be held July 10 and will be availbe for viewing to all Prime members.
