Is Amazon Prime Day worth it?

I would say, it really all depends. If you have specific items or memberships you are looking for, such as those outlined above, then Prime Day is definitely worth it.

However, if you find yourself browsing the site aimlessly trying to spot a bargain you don’t really need, then it won’t be worth it. Don’t forget, it’s only a bargain if you actually need it, and nothing saves more money than not buying in the first place!

Of course, there’s no harm in having a browse and taking advantage of a great deal, but don’t be afraid of missing out, especially if you don’t even need the item in question.

How to get the best out of Amazon Prime Day

To ensure you get great deals on products you actually want, here’s my top tips for getting the best out of Amazon Prime Day:

Decide what you’re looking for ahead of time

To avoid aimlessly scrolling trying to find a bargain you don’t actually need, make a rough list a few days or weeks beforehand of products or brands you are looking for. For example, you might want a new Echo device, but may not mind which model, and can decide based on the best offer.

Don’t compromise key features just to get a “bargain”

On the contrary, if you need specific features that are not available on the models on offer, it is probably not great to compromise.

Don’t just stick to Amazon

Just like Black Friday, many other large retailers such as Curry’s, Boots and Argos may price match or even beat some of Amazon’s Prime Day deals in order to attract sales. It’s worth double checking that Amazon is the best price for the item you’re looking for.

Use Topcashback

With Topcashback, you can get up to 2.5% cashback on your Amazon purchases.
