How do I get the most out of the sale?
To find the items in which you’re most interested, use the filters on Amazon’s website to search for products by brand or price. Begin by clicking on “Prime Big Day Deals” on the site menu below the search box. From there, scroll down until you see a menu on the left of the screen that lists “Departments” you can click on to narrow your search. You filter for items based on product categories such as “Baby clothing,””Electronics,” and “Home and kitchen,” as well as price range and discount size, such as “50% off or more.”
If you spot a product you’re interested in buying that has a red “Invite-only Deal” label, click the yellow “request invitation” button on the right of the page to sign up to receive a purchase link when the deal becomes available.
