Check the price history before buying.
Check the price history for the item you want to buy to make sure you actually get the best deal. You can use a website like Camelcamelcamel or Keepa to track the price history of every item you want to buy. The websites will even notify you when the price drops. You can also check PriceBlink to see if prices are cheaper in another store.
Add to Waiting List

Share Your Prime Benefits
It is not necessary to pay the full price for multiple Prime accounts in your household if someone already has one. You can share with another adult and even give access to your children (the children need your permission for all purchases). You get the same benefits as free next day or second day delivery and prime video streaming.
Using a 30-Day Trial
If you only want to use Amazon for the Prime Day promotions, sign up for the 30-Day Trial. They have the same benefits as Prime users for the entire trial period. You can cancel at any time after Prime Day is over to avoid– Set up a calendar reminder when you plan to cancel.
Get a Student or Medicaid Discount
If you're a student or have a Medicaid, you can get a discount on Amazon Prime. So instead of paying $ 13 every month, you pay $ 6. You must confirm your authorization by submitting the relevant documents. If you are a student, you can scan a copy of your certificate or student ID. For the Medicaid discount, enter your EBT number and send a picture of the card – or send your Medicaid documentation.
Consider the Amazon Credit Card
Sign in to Amazon for the credit card to make a big purchase. You can earn 5% cashback with a purchase from Amazon, but you also need a Prime membership. There is no annual credit card charge and the limit is unlimited.
Skip Two-Day Shipping
Amazon offers you rewards if you choose free shipping at the checkout instead of the standard two-day shipping. After adding a qualifying item to your shopping cart, the shipping options will be displayed. Delivery within one day, delivery on the Amazon tag and shipping without hurry. The rewards vary depending on the item selected. You can redeem your rewards for digital items like music, ebooks and apps.
