The number of deals available during Amazon Prime Day is frankly a little ridiculous. We're talking tens of thousands of discounted products spread across 25 categories. Sifting through everything would literally take you hours (at which point a lot of the better bargains will be sold out.) Fortunately, it's possible to find the best deals in seconds by following this trick.
This morning we put together a big roundup of the best Amazon Prime Day deals - but our list barely scratches the surface of what's out there. If you're keen to find more bargains, you need to filter your search to sift out the garbage. (And there's always plenty of garbage when it comes to big Amazon sales.)
Here are the steps to find the best Amazon Prime Day bargains as quickly as possible:
Step #1 Join Amazon Prime
As you've probably heard by now, Amazon Prime Day is an exclusive sale for Prime members. This is Amazon's premium monthly subscription service which boasts free shipping on any items purchased through Amazon and free access to Prime Video, Prime Music and Prime Reading. A subscription normally costs $6.99 per month. If you're only interested in the Prime Day deals you can sign up for a free trial - just remember to cancel after the sale.
Step #2 Select 'Shop All Deals'
Amazon Prime Day is divided into 25 categories. You can see all of the products simultaneously by clicking on the 'Shop All Deals' option, including timed Lightning deals. (This may seem counterproductive to narrowing things down, but hear us out.)
Step #3 Refine your search
On the left-hand side of the Amazon Prime Day page you will find a list of the available categories under 'Department'. Simply check the boxes you're interested in to refine your search.
Step #4 Sort by Discount
In the right-hand side of the deals page, you should see a drop-down menu labelled 'Sort By'. Select "Discount - High To Low". This will automatically reorder the deals from the biggest discount to the lowest, essentially showing you the best bargains available at that very moment.
Step #5 Empty your goddamn wallet!
That's it! You should now have a bespoke list of the categories you're interested in, with the best deals at the very top. (If you want to narrow things down even further, you can also search for specific discount percentages - with the maximum being 70% off. You'll find the option under 'Discount' at the lower left hand side.)
