Prime Day #2 Starts at 3 am EST ~ Here’s What You Need to Know to Score the Deals

Amazon delivery free for christmas 2018ARE …. YOU …. READY?????

Amazon’s Prime Early Access Sale (aka Prime Day #2 of the year) is starting at midnight PT (October 11) —  and I am here for it!

We’re talking Black Friday / Cyber Monday-level of deals!

The upcoming 48 hours (July 12th and 13th) will be HOPPING with non-stop deals, which means you can count on me to work around-the-clock to keep you informed about all the best of them.

{I’ll also be sorting thru the junk that’s out there – because let’s face, there are always some clunkers during Prime Day, and I don’t want you to mistakenly think, “Oh, it’s Prime Day, it must be a good deal.”}

Because of all the craziness that’s coming over the next 48 hours, I really want to help you get your ducks in a row today, so that you can maximize your savings (and minimize the time you spend scoring them).

4 Ways to Get the Deals You Want for Amazon Prime Early Access Sale

#1. Make sure you’re a member of Amazon Prime

This is an exclusive sale for Prime members. So if you’re not yet a member, today is the perfect day to sign up for a FREE 30-day trial of Amazon Prime.

With your trial membership, you will get all the benefits of Prime – including free next-day shipping (and in some cases same-day shipping) with no minimum purchase. And best of all, you’ll be able to take advantage of the awesome Prime Day deals I’m going to be posting.

After your free 30-day trial, you will automatically be enrolled in Amazon Prime ($139/year), but no worries: You can go into your account and opt-out if you’d rather not continue.

#2. Sign up for the KOAB Daily Deal Newsletter

For Prime Day #2 — and any day!, signing up for my daily newsletter is the best way to guarantee you don’t miss the deals.

During the Early Access Sale, I’ll likely send an extra newsletter or two, just so that we can minimize the number of deals that expire before you can get your email.

#3. Sign up for FREE real-time WhatsApp alerts from KOAB

Many of the best Early Access deals will be “Lightning Deals” — which means they won’t last longer than a few hours (if that!).

If your only way of getting the deals is thru the newsletter, you will be risking some of the best deals selling out before you get your email from me.

That’s why I’ve set up FREE WhatsApp alerts with real-time notifications for every single deal that I share, including all these super hot Early Access deals.

#5. Read this article on “When Is a Deal NOT a Deal”

Amazon is the biggest retail company in the world for good reason. Not only do they sell everything and anything, but they know HOW to sell it to us.

There’s a deeply psychological part of Amazon’s marketing plan – and that is the frenzied pace of all their deals. This frenzy can trick your brain into a “feast or famine” mode, which gives you that niggling fear that if you don’t BUY NOW, you’ll never be able to buy again.

In turn, that feeling can cause some people to spend money they don’t have, on things they may not even need or want.

I love finding great deals for you! It’s the best job I’ve ever had and it makes me so happy.

But worrying that you might be spending money you don’t have? That literally keeps me up at night.

So let me just reassure you right now: Yes, Prime Day will have 48-hours of great, GREAT deals. And yes, we may not see these low of prices ever again (at least not until Black Friday/Cyber Monday).

But if you don’t have the money to pay for something… and if you’re going to put that something on a credit card without a clear plan for paying it off… then that is not a deal.

That is an albatross around your neck. And I don’t want that for you. No deal is worth that stress!

    Hi Mara. I’m in a WhatsApp group of yours but there haven’t been any notifications yet today (nothing about the deals on your website). Is that to be expected? I’m in deal alerts #11.
