If you are an Amazon Prime Day newbie or you are already a seasoned pro, these are some helpful information you should know about this year’s Amazon biggest shopping event.

Download the App and Get Notified
Once you’re done registering for a free trial or an annual member, it’s important you download the app. You can either visit amazon.com/app to download or enter your email address here to receive a direct link where you can download the app. The app allows you to get a sneak peak on the biggest discounts. It’s important to get notified through the app so you’ll know if the items you want are already on sale. To get notified, you need to do the following:
1. Search for items.
You need to first search for the items that you wish to purchase. You need to include the items in your list to receive an alert whenever they go on sale during Amazon Prime Day.
2. Get notified.
To receive alerts on your chosen items, you need to turn your Amazon App’s notification on. On the Settings menu of your app, you need to click on Notifications and enable the Personal Notifications option.
Once you’ve done these steps, all that you need is wait for Amazon Prime Day to start and go gaga on a shopping spree.
