Get Ready to Shop like a Prime Day Pro

With its endless catalog of items, competitive prices, and lightning fast shipping, it’s no surprise that Amazon has taken the online shopping world by storm. And with Amazon Prime day coming up on June 15th and 16th, shoppers in search of a good deal are in full-preparation mode. But how can you make sure you’re getting the best deal on Prime Day? Here’s 4 tips to be a Prime Day Pro.

Make a Game Plan

An unwise Prime Day shopper would go in to the sale blind, purchasing any odds and ends that seem “cool” or “useful”, but don’t be deceived. To truly get the best deals on Prime Day, make a list of what items you really need (not want) and would love to grab for a lower price. Prime Day can be the perfect time to purchase larger items like technology and appliances. Make a list of your must-haves and go for quality over quantity.


Do Your Research

Just because an item is on your shopping list does not mean Prime Day is the time to buy. Do some pre-Prime Day research and gather an average current price for the item you’re looking to get. If the Prime Day price is lower and is therefore a great deal, go for it! If the price is looking a little too close to regular price for the item, it’s best to wait for another major sale like Black Friday to see if you can get a better deal.


Get Ready

Prime Day deals are not only limited, they’re time sensitive. But, Amazon advertises most of its deals ahead of time. Keep an eye out for the deals you’re after and when they start. Set alarms or reminders if you really want to make sure to snag the right items.


Use the Right Card

During this Prime Day, don’t get played by a high-rate credit card! Get ready to shop 'til you drop using your USC Credit Union Credit Card and pay 0% APR* for 6 months on any purchases made from July 15th to July 22nd, 2019!
