Amazon’s Prime Day 2020 is the shopping event for bargain hunters with Prime membership *. Because as part of this discount campaign, the online retailer Amazon spoils its Prime customers with attractive offers and deals. On average, products are around 27 percent cheaper on these two days. That means: technology, fashion, household items and more are partly available at the best price.

With these 6 tips you can save on Amazon Prime Day 2020

So you can really save money on Prime Day * – provided you shop with a system. Because even a bargain can be a waste of money if you never use it, for example because it is useless or cheaply processed. So that this doesn’t happen to you, we have put together six tips for Amazon Prime Day, with which you can avoid bad purchases and only click on “buy now” for the right deals.

1. Tip: Become a member of Amazon Prime

The prerequisite for being able to participate in Prime Day * at all is a membership with Amazon Prime *. For € 7.99 a month or € 69.00 a year, you can enjoy numerous advantages – including the right to participate in the shopping event. If you are not yet a member, you can test the service for 30 days free of charge * and even shop for free deals on Prime Day (if you cancel before the free period expires).

2. Tip: Mark the date for Prime Day in the calendar

Prime Day 2020 will take place on October 13th and 14th *. It’s best to set up a reminder in your calendar so that you don’t forget the appointment. Since Prime Day is being held on Tuesday and Wednesday this year and you will probably be working, you can also create an appointment reminder in your Outlook calendar. But don’t let your boss catch you shopping!

Tip 3: Create a shopping list for Amazon Prime Day

Almost everything is reduced on Prime Day. But don’t let the low prices tempt you to make bad purchases that you neither wanted nor need. Better think about what you want to buy in advance and look for offers. Also read purchase advice and product recommendations in order to know exactly which parts should end up in your shopping cart before Prime Day *.

4. Tip: NewsABC.net the Amazon app

The Amazon app is practical – especially on Prime Day *. Under the “Offers” tab, you can see which deals will go live shortly before Prime Day. You can use the “watch” function to be notified when the sale starts. So you don’t miss any important offers and you can fill your shopping cart without stress or time pressure.

5th tip: Don’t forget flash offers

Not all deals will be available over the entire Prime Day *, as some are so-called lightning offers. The motto here is: It pays to be quick, because these lightning offers are usually sold out within a short time. But even if a lightning deal is out of stock, there is still hope. So you can put yourself on the waiting list and keep your fingers crossed that other customers have changed their minds about the deal.

6. Tip: Compare the prices on Prime Day too

Probably the most important tip: Compare prices on Prime Day too. Use a price comparison portal such as Idealo * for this. Because just because Amazon claims something is on sale doesn’t mean you can’t find an even better deal. Often only the far too high and unrealistic RRP is given as the original price. Only when you compare the price at different retailers do you notice how good it really is.
