There are plenty of unbeatable deals to be found during Amazon Prime Day, but sorting through all of the options and getting the best deals before they disappear can be a challenge. The expert shoppers at CBS Essentials (that’s us!) have put together some shopping tips to help you get the best deals available during Amazon Prime Day 2023.

What is Amazon Prime Day?

Amazon Prime Day is an annual two-day sales event created by Amazon. The e-commerce giant puts tons of top-selling products on sale exclusively for Amazon Prime subscribers. Prime Day is an excellent opportunity for shoppers to score brand-name tech, kitchen appliances, furniture, clothing, toys, beauty products, and more for Black Friday-like prices.

When is Prime Day 2023?

Amazon has not yet announced the dates for Amazon Prime Day 2023. It typically occurs in late June or mid-July.

Amazon Prime Day 2022 took place from Tuesday, July 12 to Wednesday, July 13. As such, some people are predicting that this year’s event will begin on Tuesday, July 11 and end on Wednesday, July 12. Though in 2021, Amazon chose June 21-22 as the Prime Day sale dates, so it’s worth noting that there can be quite a bit of variation in the sale dates.

Keep checking back to CBS Essentials for the latest updates on the Amazon Prime Day 2023 sale.

How to get the best deals on Amazon Prime Day 2023

Snag the best deals during the Amazon Prime Day sale with these five tips.

1. Join Amazon Prime

Amazon Prime Day deals have historically been available only to shoppers with an active Amazon Prime subscription. Those who have never been Amazon Prime members can get a 30-day free trial

An Amazon Prime membership costs $14.99 per month (plus taxes) or $139 per year. It includes much more than access to Prime Day deals: You get free, two-day shipping on most Amazon products (and free same-day delivery in some areas), access to TV shows and movies on Amazon Prime Video plus special deals at Whole Food Market and more.

2. Shop early and check back regularly

The best deals on Amazon Prime Day often sell out quickly, so you’ll want to start early if you’re hoping to score a doorbuster deal on a big-name brand. However, it’s important to remember that new deals will be unveiled regularly, so keep checking back periodically for new lightning deals. Amazon also typically unleashes a new set of deals on day two of the sale, so even if you shop the first day of the sale, it’s worth circling back for more discounts.

3. Filter the deals 

The main Amazon deals page can get a bit overwhelming on Amazon Prime Day with so many major discounts. Plus, as mentioned above, there will be deals from just about every product on Amazon available to shop. We recommend narrowing your deals search by category to get a better view of the deals that fit your needs. You can use the menu bar along the left side of the Amazon deals page to filter by category. You can also filter by star rating to make sure that you’re only seeing deals on well-rated products and don’t accidentally impulse-buy a poor-quality item.

CBS Essentials will also be publishing category-specific deals lists all throughout Amazon Prime Day 2023 to help you cut through the noise and find the top deals in each category on products with at least 4 star ratings.

4. Use one-click shopping on Amazon

Make sure that you have up-to-date payment and shipping information in your Prime account and then consider using one-click shopping to complete your Amazon Prime Day purchases fast. The best stuff can sell out quick!

To use one-click shipping, select Buy Now on the product page of the item that you want to buy. A Buy Now pop-up will appear and you can double-check the selected shipping address and payment method and then confirm your purchase. This method is faster than the traditional “add to cart” option, so it’s useful when shopping lightning deals or low-stock items during Amazon Prime Day.

5. Let the experts at CBS Essentials do the work for you

CBS Essentials will be with you every step up the way to help you find the best Amazon Prime Day 2023 deals. Keep checking back to find the best deals roundups and our deals live blog.
