To better follow the offers for Amazon Prime Day 2019, here are three extensions to install on your browser
Amazon Prime Day 2019 is just around the corner: the 48 hours of discounts on thousands and thousands of products on sale on Amazon reserved for Prime users will start at 00:00 on Monday, July 15 and end at 23:59 on Tuesday, July 16. Two days during which, in order to make the best deals, you will have to follow very closely the new WOW offers, which could last even just a few minutes and are related to very limited quantities.
But, if in addition to the passion for online shopping we also have a life and a job, it will be really difficult to monitor the most interesting discounts throughout the time of Prime Day. Luckily, though, there are three browser extensions that can do most of the work for us and alert us in a timely manner when an item we are interested in goes on discount, tell us if there are coupons around the Web that can save us money or, finally, show us the price trend of an item on Amazon. These three extensions are Amazon Assistant Browser (i.e. the official Amazon extension), Honey and The Camelizer.
Amazon Assistant Browser extension
The Amazon Assistant extension works with Chrome, Firefox and Safari. The interesting thing is that we can use it even if we're not Prime users yet, so it can be useful this year for us to figure out what we missed during Prime Day. The add-on also shows us the price difference for the same item on Amazon and other online stores and, finally, allows us to add items seen on other shops to our Amazon wishlist.
The Honey extension is available for Chrome, Firefox, Opera, Edge and Safari. Its job is simple: if there's a discount code or coupon that can save you some money on a purchase at one of the major e-commerce sites, Honey will flag it for you. It works on thousands of online stores and, the developers claim, saves an average of almost 18%.
The Camelizer is the official extension of CamelCamelCamel.com, a site that operates as an Amazon picetracker. It basically tracks the price of a list of items of our choice and shows a graph with the trend over time. In this way we also discover very interesting things, such as the fact that certain items are put on discount even outside of the 48 hours of Prime Day and that, at certain times of the year, the price drops even more. Very useful information to understand if it is the case to buy now, or it is better to wait a few weeks or months and buy at the best price.
How to take advantage of Prime Day deals
For those who could not wait until Prime Day, you can shop with Alexa on Echo devices as early as Saturday, July 13 to get early access to selected deals dedicated to Amazon devices. Just ask, "Alexa, what are my deals?". In addition, Prime customers will find some deals on Amazon devices as early as 12:00 noon on Sunday, July 14.
