How to Take Part in Amazon Prime Day Deals

Only Amazon Prime Members Can Take Part

Prime members, remember to STAY LOGGED IN to see all the deals.

You have to pay to play. Only Prime members can take advantage of Amazon Prime Day deals. If you’re a seasoned Amazon shopper, the $119/yr fee is well worth the many perks of Amazon Prime. If you don’t shop want to pay the cost, here are some much cheaper alternatives.

  • If you’ve never signed up for an Amazon Prime trial: You’re eligible for a free 30-day trial membership. Make sure to cancel before your 30 days are up.
  • If you’ve already signed up for an Amazon Prime trial: Amazon offers 1 month of Prime for only $12.99. This is easily the best solution if all you want to do is participate in Prime Day without any commitment. You could recoup the cost from a single purchase.
  • If you’re a student: You’re eligible for a free 6-month trial. Even if you already used up the trial, you’re still eligible for 50% off Amazon Prime, or $59 per year for 4 years.

Prime Day Gift Card Deal

Send $50 in Amazon Gift Cards via SMS Text (I.E. To Yourself) and Get Free $5 Amazon Credit

The first Amazon Prime Day “free money” deal is in. Follow the directions to text $50 in Amazon gift cards to yourself and you’ll automatically receive a $5 Amazon credit to your account. This is essentially free money. If you plan to shop on Amazon at all and have an unlimited text message plan, there is no reason you shouldn’t be taking advantage of it.

Prime Day Whole Foods Credit Deal

Spend $10 at Whole Foods or Prime Now, Get Free $10 Amazon Credit

The second Amazon Prime Day “free money” deal is in.This is your chance to walk into Whole Foods and go on a $10 shopping spree. Personally for me that means buying 5 bottles of Bruce Cost Ginger Beer. For in-store Whole Foods purchases, scan the Prime Code or use your linked mobile number at checkout. The credit can be used between July 15 and 17.

Prime Day eBook Credit Deal

Spend $20 in eBooks, Get Free $5 eBook Credit

You must be logged into your Amazon Prime membership account to see this deal. Spend $20 in Kindle eBooks by July 14 and get an additional $5 worth of eBooks. In layman’s terms, that’s 20% off your $25 eBook total.

Prime Day Prime Pantry Deal

$10 Off Prime Pantry Orders of $40 or More

Use code “PANTRY” to get $10 off your first order of $40 or more. Amazon Prime Pantry offers low prices on tons of household goods which are not usually available to regular Amazon shoppers. No matter how many items you buy, you pay the same $5.99 flat rate shipping cost.

Prime Day Free Kindle Unlimited Deal

You must be logged into your Amazon Prime membership account to see this deal. If you’re a regular digital ebook reader, this membership is highly recommended. Kindle Unlimited gives you access to over 1 million Kindle eBooks and over 20,000 digital comics. This deal is typically for new subscribers only, but there have been reports that it has worked for people who have previously subscribed but are not current members.

Prime Day Amazon Music Unlimited Deal

Get 4 Months of Amazon Music Unlimited for $0.99

Log into your Amazon Prime account to see this deal (for new subscribers only). This promo is an Amazon Prime Day staple. It’s an excellent deal considering you normally pay $8-$10 per month for this service. Amazon Music Unlimited gives you access to millions of ad-free songs and playlists, and is comparable to ad-free paid services such as Spotify and Pandora Premium. It’s especially useful if you own Echo devices.

Log into your Amazon Prime account to see this deal. An Audible membership normally costs $149.50 per year.

Early Amazon Prime Day Deals

Prime Day Echo Dot Deal

3rd Generation Amazon Echo Dot for $24.99 (Originally $49.99)

Save 50% off the latest Amazon Echo Dot. The Echo Dot is more than just an informational device or a friend to talk to when you have none. You can download from a library of thousands of 1st party, 3rd party, and user submitted Alexa skills that accomplish everything from ordering Domino’s pizza to controlling your home security system.

Prime Day Instant Pot Deals

Instant Pot DUO Plus 60 6 Qt 9-in-1 Electric Pressure Cooker for $69.99 (Originally $130)

This same Instant Pot sold for $80 last Amazon Prime Day, but you’re getting it for 13% less than that this year. Electric pressure cookers are all the rage, and for good reason. You can cook all kinds of food that typically would take a very long time in a matter of minutes. In my case, that’s been ribs, tri-tip, beef stew, rice, and much much more. I bought this a few years ago and besides my microwave, it is the most used small appliance that I own. The Duo Plus 60 is the luxury model of the instant pot lineup.

Prime Day Fire TV Recast Deal

Amazon Fire TV Recast From $129.99 (Was $230)

The Amazon Fire TV Recast is a DVR that lets you watch and record over-the-air TV at home with Fire TV or Echo Show, or on-the-go with a compatible mobile device with no monthly fees. The base model has 2 tuners and 500GB of storage which can record up to 75 hours of TV. The advanced model has 4 tuners and 1TB of storage.

Prime Day Ring Video Doorbell Deal

Ring Video Doorbell Pro with Alexa for $169.99 (Was $250)

Prime Day MicroSD Card Deal

Samsung EVO Select 256GB Micro SDXC Card (Nintendo Switch Compatible) for $36.99

After plunking down $300 on a Nintendo Switch, you might find it hard to spend more money on accessories. Unfortunately, the Switch only comes with 32GB of onboard storage, which is inadequate if you hope to build out any kind of digital library. Fortunately, you can increase your storage capacity 9-fold for only $37. For most people, a 256GB card is all you’ll ever need to hold every single one of your games. The Samsung EVO Select is a faster memory card than the other memory card (SanDisk Ultra) we like to push.

Prime Day Arcade1up Deal

Street Fighter 2 Arcade1Up Cabinet (Street Fighter ll Champion Edition, Street Fighter ll The New Challengers, Street Fighter ll Turbo) for $199

Clip the $50 off coupon on the product page and score this awesome 3:4 scale SF2 arcade replica for just $199, $100 cheaper than everywhere else. The 3:4 scale is perfect for sit-down play. If you want standup play, this riser is specifically made for this cabinet.

Prime Day LEGO Deals

Prime Day Corsair Headset Deal

Prime Day Logitech Speaker Deal

Logitech Z313 2.1ch Multimedia Speakers for $27.72 (Was $50)

Prime Day MacBook Deals

$200 Off Brand New 2018 MacBook Air 13″ Retina Display Intel Core i5 Laptop, Now Starting at $999

The page says “Latest Model,” but don’t be fooled. Amazon just hasn’t gotten the new ones in yet (though you can get them directly from Apple). Regardless, these 2.8lb MacBook Airs are very good laptops, with 13.3-inch Retina 2560×1600 displays, dual-core eighth-gen Intel Core i5 processors, Intel UHD Graphics 617, and 8GB memory. Basically, if you need a laptop to do regular laptop things, this is a fantastic choice. It’s also the last time you’re likely to find a MacBook for under $1000, so grab it quick before it sells out.

Up to $200 Off 2017 MacBook Pro 13″ Retina Display Intel Core i5 Laptop without Touch Bar, Now Starting at $1149.99

Deliciously Touch Bar-free. This is the “MacBook Escape,” or the most recent MacBook Pro to ship without a Touch Bar. And with the new MacBook Pro refresh Apple announced yesterday, there are no more models without a Touch Bar. So if not having a Touch Bar is important to you, this is pretty much your last chance to get one for the foreseeable future. Aside form that, it comes with a 2.3GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 processor, a crystal-clear Retina display, Intel Iris Plus Graphics 640, and two Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) ports.

Aside from that, it comes with a 2.3GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 processor, a crystal-clear Retina display, Intel Iris Plus Graphics 640, and two Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) ports.

The G7 is Dell’s highest end gaming laptop outside of Alienware. This particular config comes equipped with the latest 9th generation Intel Core i7 processor and the new GeForce GTX 1660 Ti video card. The GTX 1660 Ti mobile variant performs on par with the RTX 2060, which means it’s about 10%-25% faster than the GTX 1060. It also boasts a 15″ 1080p IPS display, Intel Core i7-9750 processor, 8GB of memory, and dual drives.

If you factor in the $75 Dell Gift Card, you’re basically paying $725. If you’re looking for the ultimate beast in gaming monitors, the Alienware AW3418DW should be tops on your list. Specs include a 34″ 3440×1440 curved IPS panel display with super wide viewing angles and 99% sRGB coverage, 4ms response time, NVIDIA G-SYNC compatibility, up to 120Hz refresh rate, and RGB lighting. You should see the Dell gift card in your cart. The gift card carries a 90-day expiration date and can be used on practically anything at Dell.com.

This is a really powerful gaming desktop for under $1400. The latest generation Intel Core i7-9700K 8-core processor is unlocked for better overclocking overhead and the newest generation RTX 2070 is better than the GTX 1080.

Amazon Prime Day Tips and Strategies:

The Amazon Visa Card normally gives you 3% cashback on all Amazon purchases. If you have an Amazon Prime Membership, the cashback gets bumped up to 5%. For Prime Day (July 15-16) this cashback gets increased to 6%. Getting an extra 6% off every single purchase on Amazon is pretty outstanding, especially considering this card has zero annual fees.

Now until July 25, also get an $80 Amazon Credit when you first sign up.

For those of you who prefer making purchases with a debit card instead of a credit card, there’s a very easy way to get cashback here too. Simply reload your Amazon balance with a debit card and get 2% cashback. All you’re doing is transferring funds from one account (your debit card) to another (your Amazon account) and Amazon is essentially rewarding you for it.

One of the biggest perks for Amazon Prime members is the free 2-day shipping. But do you need 2-day shipping for every purchase? If instead you choose “Free Standard Shipping” Amazon will give you $1-$5 worth of Amazon credits good for digital goods (like games and software), Prime Pantry, music, Kindle digital books, and more.

If you own an Amazon Echo, Echo Dot, Amazon Tap, Fire TV, or Fire Tablet device, ask your device “Alexa, what are your deals“, and Alexa will spit out unique deals that can’t be found anywhere else. There will be quite a few Alexa-exclusive deals on Prime Day.

1-Click Ordering is especially useful for those of you who like to make Amazon purchases on your mobile device. Instead of having to trudge through several pages before making the purchase, this process lets you purchase the item in just 1 or 2 clicks. You’ll just have to set up your account information beforehand to use this feature.

On Prime Day, this feature will also be useful for claiming those Amazon Lightning Deals that expire in mere seconds. Your item isn’t guaranteed even if you have it in your cart; the only way to make sure is to check out.

Amazon Prime Day Concert With Taylor Swift

Watch the Prime Day 2019 Concert for Free

Prime Day has gotten big enough now to spawn its own dedicated concert. Taylor Swift headlined an Amazon Music special concert broadcast live ONLY for Amazon Prime members. Also on the bill were Dua Lipa, SZA and Becky Lynch.

The bad news is the live event is over. But the good new is Amazon Prime members can still watch the Taylor Swift concert as part of the Amazon Prime Day festivities. It’s not the same as the live stream, but it’s still a great way to catch the Prime Day concert if you missed it and really want to see it.
