Amazon Prime Day 2018: What You Need To Know

Another year another Amazon Prime Day and here are all the details you need to know about the 36-hour event. Prime Day begins on  July 16th at 3 pm est. and will go through July 18th at 3 am est. New benefits from Prime this year will include offline deals at Whole Foods which just began offering 10% on sale items at their stores. In addition, if you’re an Amazon Visa Cardmember you will receive  10% back and double the rewards.

Alexa Life

If you’re in the market for a new Alexa device might I suggest the Echo Show for $100 off making the device $129.00. With my Alexa growing old with time and not working so well anymore (I’ve had her since 2012) maybe it’s time I upgrade and thankfully Amazon has a trade-in program that will give you a value for a pre-approved device on Amazon gift card. SCORE!

Save More Money

Now for the nitty-gritty, before you begin here are two chrome extensions or sites you should keep on standby when making your purchases to ensure you’re getting the best prices Wiki-Buy and  Honey.  I use these two chrome extensions as well as Ebates to maximize my savings and cash back options. The most important thing is to go into this thing with a plan, make a list of things that you’re looking to add to your life… and stick to it. I learned the hard way last year.
