Prime Day Starts at Midnight ~ Here’s What You Need to Know to Score the Best Deals!

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

Amazon Prime Day is starting tonight at 12:01 am PST (3:01 am EST) and I am here for it! Are you????

Based on the sneak peek that Amazon sent me (which I shared with you over HERE), it looks like the deals this year are going to be better than ever.

We’re talking Black Friday / Cyber Monday-level better-than-ever!

The next 48 hours (July 15th and 16th) 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).

5 Ways to Get the Best Deals for Amazon Prime Day

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

Prime Day 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 ($119/year), but no worries: You can go into your account and opt-out if you’d rather not continue.

#2. Sign up for FREE real-time text alerts from KOAB

If you’ve gotten this far, I know that you’re a fan of deals – and you don’t want to miss a single one of them. Of course you can find updates on FacebookTwitter, and/or my daily deal round-up email.

But what if you only see 1 in every 10 posts I share on Facebook (stupid algorithm!)? And what if you can’t wait until the daily newsletter hits your inbox – since you’ll be risking some of the best deals selling out in the meantime?

That’s why I set up FREE text alerts with real-time notifications for every single Prime Day deal that I share, including the super short-lived flash deals.

To sign up for Prime Day text alerts, just text DealsKOAB to 81257 (standard text messaging rates from your carrier do apply).

If you live in Israel, I’ve created a brand new WhatsApp group for Prime Day deal alerts. To join, please email me and put “WhatsApp” in the subject line.

#3. Sign up for the KOAB Daily Deal Newsletter

If getting constant text alerts over the 48 hours of Prime Day seems overwhelming to you (I get it!), signing up for my daily newsletter is the next best way to guarantee you don’t miss the deals.

During Prime Day, 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.

#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.
