Here's how to make the most out of Amazon's upcoming Prime Day

If you’re planning on shopping this week, WTHR's Cherie Lowe, the Queen of Free, shares what you need to do right now to prepare.

INDIANAPOLIS — 2022 Amazon Prime Day starts Tuesday, July 12, and ends the next day. Every year, there are not only good deals and sales on Amazon, but many other online retailers will be offering deep discounts and special prices. Cherie Lowe, the Queen of Free, broke down some of the best offers Sunday on 13Sunrise.

Other deals are linked in Cherie's weekly blog.

Before Prime Day

In preparation for Prime Day, Amazon has been running a number of promotions to help customers build up some extra spending money.

Free subscriptions

Amazon is offering a one-year subscription to Grubhub+ for free. Get those details here. If you don't want to pay $9.99 for the next year, make sure you cancel the deal next July. 

  • You can also get three months of Audible Premium Plus for FREE if you qualify.
  • If you’ve never tried it before, you can get four months of Amazon Music unlimited for FREE. 

"With all free trials, it’s smart to see if you can cancel immediately," said Cherie. "If you can’t be sure to set a reminder in your calendar app or on your phone to cancel it before a charge goes through."

Other sites

Amazon isn’t the only site with deals on July 12-13. In particular, check Target and any other website you usually shop. You can put items in your cart before the sale starts, then see if the prices drop once the sales begin.

Cherie recommends you NOT use credit for your purchases. "A deal isn’t a deal if you can’t pay for it," she said. "Especially right now, you need to be watching your personal finances more than ever because the cost of living is on the rise."
