Amazon’s Prime Day may tempt you to overspend. Here are some tips

Also, the best tactic to follow during Prime Day is to make your purchases during the presale offers so that you have time to make any returns in case you find a better price later on.

If Amazon's website does indeed crash on July 15 (Prime Day is running from July 15-16 this year), then the eBay "Crash sale" kicks in.

Whether it's Prime Day sales or other retailers hopping on Amazon's bandwagon, it can seem like there's no excuse not to be shopping.


This year, despite its name, Prime Day is happening on two days: Monday and Tuesday.

Creating a normal account on Amazon is free, but an Amazon Prime membership will run you $8.99 a month for a Prime Video-only membership, $12.99 a month for an overall monthly membership or a $119 flat fee for an annual membership with all the same allowances as Prime Monthly. This is the membership that gives you next day delivery and access to the retail behemoth's TV service, among other things.

Much of what's on sale is kept a secret until the event, but you'll be able to browse deals ahead of time on Amazon's app, the company said. Experts say to expect the deepest discounts on Amazon-branded goods like Fire, Echo and Kindle devices. And this year's doorbuster sales event will be more distracting than ever, as Amazon has decided to make it a two-day shopping extravaganza running through the end of Tuesday. Another tip is to have a plan and figure out ahead of time what you need before buying.


A 2019 model television may be on sale but consider choosing a television set from 2018 in order to score a great deal, Wirecutter's analysts advised.

On top of the Amazon Prime Day PC deals, there are also some other features and benefits to getting involved this year.
