It will just be its third occurrence but Amazon's Prime Day has turned out to be a shopping bonanza for online shoppers.  The annual event begins at 9pm tonight (July 10th), with a new discount deal offered every five minutes for 30 hours this year (with deals ending Wednesday July 12th at 3am)!  But to play the discount game you got to have your strategy ready to go in the short hours left before it begins.  So first, make sure you Prime account is up to date (get the 30-day free trial if you are not an Amazon Prime member). Use the Amazon App to see what deals are coming up.  Touch "Today's Deals" and then "Upcoming" to see all the Prime deals 24 hours before they go live. If there’s something you’ve got your eye on, you can “Watch this Deal” to get a notification when the sale has officially started for that item. As for the discounts, they begin at 9pm tonight through Alexa devices.  Simply say, “Alexa, what are your deals?” anytime during Prime day to hear what’s available right now.  Of course many deals will sell out quickly but don't despair. Using the app, press the “Join Waitlist” button on the product page to get notified if for some reason more inventory becomes available. Finally, don't get caught up in the wave of discounts.  As with Black Friday, not all the Amazon Prime Day deals are actually deals. The good news is that you have some time to prepare for the bargain bonanza!
