3 Simple Things You Should Do to Get Ready for Prime Day

Unless you've been living under the proverbial rock, you probably already know that, this year,  
Prime Day begins at 12:00 p.m. Pacific Time (3:00 p.m. Eastern Time) on 7/16/18 and will last 36 hours, through 7/17/18.  That's TOMORROW, friends.  

My husband  has already set up the coffee and Diet Coke IV for me.  I'm primed (pun-intended), locked, and loaded to get you the very, very best Prime Day deals.  

Here are three quick & easy things you can do to prepare for Prime Day:

1) There will be literally MILLIONS of Amazon deals floating out there on Prime Day.  Make sure you have an easy way to stay in touch with Daily Cheapskate and get the best deals! 

Once Prime Day starts tomorrow, I cannot promise that I will have time to add subscribers to the What'sApp Broadcast List, so make sure you subscribe NOW!

2) Not a Prime member?  No worries. Prime Day deals are for Prime members only, but that doesn't mean that you need to shell out $119 dollars for an annual Prime Day membership to join in the fun.

3) Plan your purchases!  While there are always amazing, unplanned deals that come up on Prime Day, don't go into Prime Day with at least some idea of what you would like to buy and how much you would like to spend.
  • Budget!  Have a specific dollar amount limit for what you will spend on Prime Day and keep to it, no matter how great the deals might be.
  • Make a list, check it twice:  Make a list of things you would like to see go on sale on Prime Day.  The list doesn't have to be item-specific (i.e. baby wipes, a 40" HDTV, curtains, paper towels, school supplies, headphones). Having a list will help you stay focused on Prime Day.
  • Pick out a book.  Or two:  every Prime Day thus far has seen a special deal on a physical book on Amazon.  Last year, the book deal was $5 off $15. This year, given the 36 hour length of Prime Day, there will almost certainly be at least one, or possibly even two book deals. Have in mind in advance which book you think you would like to buy.
  • Low-hanging fruit: Check out my list of items that are certain to go on sale on Prime Day and add the items that you need or would like to your shopping list.

That's it for now. Make sure you tune in here tomorrow at 12:00 p.m. Pacific time for Everything Prime Day.
