What is Amazon Prime Day?

Prime day is an annual deal event hosted by Amazon where you get incredible savings on literally everything. This is when Amazon puts over 2 million items on sale and that includes Instant Pots :-).

Use this opportunity to stock up on essentials, buy items that have been on your wish list or buy gifts ahead of time for birthdays, weddings, etc.

I probably shop more on Amazon Prime Day than Black Friday because you can get some amazing deals if you plan it right. Here are some tips to help you.

Tips to make the most of Amazon Prime Day

These deals are available only to Prime members so you need to be a member. If you are not 100% sure about its benefits, sign up for a 30-day free trial
