By now, you know that Amazon Prime Day is coming up fast, with deals happening on July 15 and 16. We’ve already outlined potential savings on popular items like Instant Pots and TVs. Yet there are even more ways to save beyond just shopping for specific items on your wishlist.

It can be hard to keep up with all of the extra ways to save during Amazon Prime Day, but Amazon has provided a few tips to help shoppers be savvier than ever.

1. Earn $20 Amazon Credit With An App

Instead of shopping through Amazon on your computer, consider downloading the Amazon app for your smartphone. When you download and sign in to the app for the first time, you get $10 in Amazon credit! The savings don’t stop there, though. After you make your first in-app Amazon purchase, you receive another $20 in Amazon credit. That’s an extra $20 in your cart that you can use on Amazon Prime Day!

2. Use Your Amazon Gift Card Balance

Instead of using your credit card directly on Amazon Prime Day, think about uploading money to an Amazon eGift Card balance. When you reload $100 or more to your Amazon eGift Card for the first time, you earn a $10 bonus!


3. Install Amazon Assistant on Your Browser

Think of the Amazon Assistant plug-in for your internet browser as just another money-saving tool. The plug-in helps you track fluctuations in your favorite products’ prices. You can select items you want to keep an eye on and, when a deal pops up, Amazon Assistant will let you know, as with the Instant Pot Pressure Cooker picture below. When you make a purchase of $50 or more through Amazon Assistant for the first time, you get $10 off your order!

4. Shop At Whole Foods

If you spend $10 at Whole Foods Market either on Amazon Prime Now or at your local store between July 3 and July 16, you’ll get $10 to spend on Amazon Prime Day. So get your list together for Whole Foods, fill up your kitchen pantry with everything you need and don’t miss your extra $10 in savings!
