Last minute tips for the end of Amazon Prime Day
Amazon Prime Day 2018 is almost over, but that doesn't mean the sales have stopped. From now until 3 a.m. EST you can still shop some of the best deals of the year.
If you're feeling deals-weary, don't fear. We've come up with some useful tips to help you get the most out of the last few hours.
Whether you know exactly what you want or are just browsing, check out these tools that our staff is using to keep the Prime Day momentum going:
Shop for someone else
While we hope you took full advantage of Prime Day to get yourself a few things, don't forget that in a few short months the holidays will be here. Yes, there will be Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but wouldn't it be nice to get the shopping out of the way now?
We saw plenty of great deals on toys and electronics all throughout the sale that would be nice for any age group. Or stock up on a few Amazon Echo Dots that teachers or other people in your life might enjoy.
So you just picked up a new Instant Pot or maybe an Amazon Echo device - that's great! But before the sale ends you might want to think about some useful accessories you could get to supplement these purchases.
For example, you could get a baking tin or steamer basket for your Instant Pot. You might even want to pick up a cookbook for your new kitchen appliance.
If you just got your first Echo then think about how you want to use it. There are plenty of smart plugs on sale if you want to control your appliances with your voice, or maybe you want to grab a speaker that complements the voice assistant.
Stock up on household goods
Lots of our staff used Prime Day as a way to get lots of common household goods on sale. Whether it's toilet paper, lotion, beauty products or diapers, you'll likely find a brand that's on sale. You can even pick up food at a cheaper price, especially protein bars and snacks. While it's not the most exciting purchase, you'll be happy about the savings and save a trip or two to the store later.
Check other retailers
Amazon wasn't the only e-commerce giant holding a sale today. Walmart, Jet, and Target all took advantage of the increased number of online shoppers and held sales of their own. Walmart has plenty of ongoing deals for smart home products as well as other electronics. Jet is taking $100 off most Apple products and big discounts on Beats headphones. Target's one day sale is focused on home products including furniture.
