Prime Day is almost here and it is a great opportunity to grab some deals for the classroom! Follow these easy steps to track some amazing deals:
- Sign up for Amazon Prime. If you don’t have an Amazon Prime membership yet, you can sign up for a free 30-day trial. Amazon Prime costs $99 for the year, so be sure to manage your account at the end of the 30 days if you are not interested in maintaining Amazon Prime.
- Create a Wish List. Follow the steps below to create your list:
Search the item you are interested in on Amazon
Scroll below the “purchase” button and click “add to list”
Once you click “add to list,” the list will be accessible from your account!
Click on “Your Lists” to access your wish list
2. Download the App. This will allow you to quickly access your Wish List from your mobile device.
3. Allow push notifications on your app. This will give you an alert if an item on your Wish List goes on sale during Prime Day. Follow these steps:
This is what the homepage of the app looks like:
Click on the three horizontal bars on the top left corner to open up your “Account Options” and scroll to the bottom to click on “Settings.” Under “Settings,” click on “Notifications.”
The app will prompt you to allow notification. Click accept, then switch the toggle next to “Your Watched and Waitlisted Deals” to turn it orange. This will allow you to get a push notification if one of the items on your list becomes a Lightning Deal.
If you see the deal pop up, buy it ASAP. Once the merchandise runs out, the deal goes away!
Good luck shopping! Here is a link to my public Wish List so you can get an idea of some great things to watch for your special education classroom!
