Don’t miss out on great deals. Prime members can subscribe to receive deal-alert notifications related to their recent Amazon searches and recently viewed items. All members have to do is visit the Prime Big Deal Days event page on the Amazon app between now and Prime Big Deal Days to create deal alerts. Once the event begins, members will receive push notifications on available deals they’ve subscribed to.

Get help from Alexa
Alexa tip

Keeping track of deals on your favorite products can be tricky. Fortunately, Alexa can help. Alexa can proactively notify you up to 24 hours in advance of a deal becoming available for eligible items you’ve saved to a Wish List, Cart, or Save for Later.

When this feature is enabled, you’ll see a yellow ring light or a pop-up notification on your Echo device, when there is a deal available. You can ask Alexa to remind you about the deal when it goes live, or ask Alexa to make the purchase when the deal is available by saying, “Alexa, buy it for me.” If you want to be alerted at the start of Prime Big Deal Days, say, "Alexa, set a reminder for Prime Big Deal Days."
