Black Friday is the perfect time to stock up on those things you’ve been waiting on or to start early holiday shopping. We’ve gathered everything you need to know to successfully get the best Black Friday Deals on Amazon
The simplest way to save money on Amazon on a regular basis is by getting a Prime membership to save on shipping for certain products. Prime is Amazon’s membership with benefits. The fee is $119 per year ($12.99/month). Most members sign-up because it includes FREE (usually two-day) shipping, but it also comes with free movies and music, discounts at Whole Foods, and a few others just to name a few.
If you have someone else who may be interested in an Amazon Prime membership but aren’t 100% there’s a way for you to save some money and each pay a smaller portion. With Amazon Household, you’ll be able to split a membership with a family member or another adult, set your own profiles up, and add your separate payment methods.
EBT/Government Assistance Programs
If you are an EBT cardholder or receive one of the select forms of government assistance, you are eligible to receive a Prime membership for 50% off bringing your subscription to just $5.99/month! You’ll need to verify that you actually receive benefits, and every 12 months, you’ll need to verify that you’re still eligible for this type of membership. You are allowed this special rate for 48 months.
Amazon Gift Cards
For a limited time, Amazon is giving a free $10 Amazon credit when you add $100 or more to your gift card balance on your account using Amazon Reload, for first-time Reload customers. The $100 is money that you’ll be spending anyway ahead of the holidays (and probably during Black Friday).
Look for the banner at the top of the shopping page to check your eligibility for the $10 bonus. It should be added to your Amazon.com Gift Card Balance within three days.
Amazon Cart and Wishlist
One of the best hacks on our list today is utilizing your Amazon Cart and Wishlists! Did you know once you add products to your cart and to your wishlists you’ll begin to receive notifications about that product? If the price increases, decreases, or if the product is out of stock you’ll be notified. This is one of the easiest ways to keep up with the products you want and exactly when they’ll be available.
For select products, you’ll be able to take advantage of the Black Friday deals on top of the coupon percentage off!
