Posted 3rd July by Peter Byrne

Did you know Amazon Prime Day (15th and 16th July) is approaching?

It presents you with a brilliant opportunity to get some stunning pieces at an amazing discount. To make sure you’re one step ahead and can nab a bargain or two, we've spoken to the experts at idealo.co.uk who share their five top tips on ensuring you get the best products you can.

Idealo’s Katy explains: "There are several reasons why prices can fluctuate all year round, with many retailers using artificial intelligence and algorithms to dynamically adjust prices according to consumer demand, competitor prices and even the weather."

"Amazon Prime Day is undoubtedly a great time to snap-up a deal, but shoppers do have to be a little bit savvy in order to really get the best bargains. Preparation really is key, and we’d urge shoppers to remember to compare prices of products to make sure they are getting the best deal on offer".

The tips to get the products for you are:

1. Preparation is key

Put the time in beforehand to you start researching – this way, you’ll be on your way to landing the best deals for you.

2. Don't take the first deal you see

Compare the prices and delivery costs that other retailers list so you can rest assured you’re actually nabbing a bargain.

3. Know what you want

Make sure you don't just buy something in the heat of the moment because you have seen it - especially if you haven't carried out any research into it.

4. Price compare

Using a price comparison app will be a great way of setting up price alerts to allow you to monitor the price history of the items you've set your eye on. This is especially handy if you have your eye on a particular bargain but may be able to get it for a cheaper price later in the year.

5. Lightning

Make sure you keep an eye on Amazon's Lightning Deals. While they're only available for a short period of time, while stocks last, they provide you with a great opportunity to get a bargain.
