Experts think this year’s Prime Day will bring some good deals. Last year, a research firm found that Prime Day sales were 77 percent cheaper than those on Black Friday. However, few Prime Day deals were truly alluring. Review sites found last year that just 64 deals out of 8,000 were worth the money and effort.
Amazon is expected to unveil large discounts for its devices such as Echo home devices, e-readers, and digital-TV streaming sticks. In 2016, The Echo was on sale for $129.99, at a $50 discount. Kindles also sold like hot cakes last year, while TV sticks were the best sellers.
This Year’s Prime Day Tips:
For this year, here are some quick tips on how to benefit of the deals:
You should know that placing an order via a voice-activated Amazon device can lead to extra savings like the Echo additional discounts.
The e-commerce giant has already started rolling out some deals on pre-Prime Day. For instance, you can get discounts to music, audio books and e-books, and many more ahead of Prime Days’ official start.
Moreover, Prime Day lasts longer than a day as it starts at 9 p.m. on Monday and ends at 3 a.m. on Wednesday.
What’s more you can go on a shopping spree and give something to charity too. So, go to smile.amazon.com and choose a charity. The website will direct a percentage of the final price to the charity of your choice.
And one last tip: countless research found that doing things leads to greater sense of fulfillment than owning things. So, postpone buying that TV set, and purchase a plane ticket for a vacation instead.
