Don’t Miss Your Favourite Deal: Set a Notification
In all likeliness, Prime Day deals will come with the same countdown timer before a deal expires and a limited quantity of the said item. In such a scenario, it’s possible that you miss a deal that you really wished to avail.
Now since, for the most of us, it isn’t possible to sit in front of the screen for the entire duration of Amazon’s Prime day, the company has made it easier for its customers to follow deals that they like via a nifty in-app feature.
To avoid missing deals without needing to come back to the device every now and then to check if the deal you wish to avail has gone live or not, download the Amazon Shopping app on iOS and Android and set an alert in it.
Open the app, tap on the Hamburger icon (the three horizontal lines) to access the menu. Find ‘Today’s Deal’ and tap on it. Now look for the ‘Upcoming’ tab from among the deal pages.
Underneath each of the items listed under the ‘Upcoming’ tab, you’ll find ‘Watch this deal’ button. Hit this button for any deal that you wish to avail once it goes live and you won’t have to worry about coming back to the app to check how much time is left before the deal goes live.
Now, whenever the deal that you’re watching goes live, you’ll be notified via a push notification. You can view the deals that you’ve set an alert for under the ‘Watchlist’ tab, located beside the ‘Upcoming’ tab.
Prime members who own an Amazon Echo, Echo Dot, Echo Show, Amazon Tap, Fire TV or Fire tablet will be able to get their hands on additional Alexa-exclusive deals.
Members in Mexico and China will not only get to shop for their local deals, but several deals available in the Amazon Global Store will also be accessible too.
