Tips from Uswitch.com’s tech and deals expert Catherine Hiley
1. Prepare in advance
Amazon Prime Day is the perfect opportunity to take advantage of huge discounts on Amazon’s top tech, including smart phones, Echo and Kindle devices. If you have been looking to use this technology, this could be your chance.
2. Know your budget
Set yourself a spending limit. Impulsive shopping without strict spending rules can lead to buying things you don’t need, and you can end up with a pile of things you don’t need.
3. Time to sign up for Amazon Prime

5. Do your research
The main point is to always check the reviews, because it is easy to get carried away by clever sales. If you’re planning to buy expensive items, such as cell phones or laptops, look for deals on comparison sites.
When you ask an Alexa-enabled device, such as an Echo or Echo Dot, “Alexa, what do you buy?”, you get access to Prime Day a few hours earlier and a chance to get special discounts.
