Amazon Prime Day 2023 is coming up next week, and Amazon is starting a few of the deals early as part of a “July 4 Sale”. It’s always a bit hit or miss to decide what things are actually on sale rather than just “deals”. As always, take a look and only purchase what things make the most sense for you.

Get an extra $5 at Amazon

If you are planning on doing any Amazon shopping, you might want to take advantage of this deal to get a $5 credit on an eGift Card purchase of $50 or moreSo you buy the $50 Amazon eGift Card, then use that to do the shopping that you were already planning on doing, and you’ll get a $5 credit to use later.

Early Prime Day deals

The Amazon Prime Day page is already up and there are a few deals listed there as well. I would imagine that these deals will last for quite awhile and there may even be better discounts as we get closer to the actual Prime Day. Still, if you’re in the market for any of these things, it might make sense.

How to Save Money at Amazon

Amazon often has promotions where you can get a percentage or dollar value off a purchase by using at least 1 credit card point (like Chase Ultimate Rewards, American Express Membership Rewards, etc). These deals are typically targeted, but it’s a good idea to regularly check if you’re eligible, because these deals come around quite a bit. Note that it is generally a bad value to use your points to shop at Amazon, but it’s definitely worth using 1 point to save $20 – $50.

Good luck, happy shopping and we’ll see you back here next week.
