Amazon Prime Day is coming up, and while it's a great time to take advantage of discounted prices, even careful shoppers can accidentally overpay. Luckily, there's an easy way to make sure you get the best deal – and you don't have to be a genius to do it.
Introducing your secret weapon: Honey.
If you haven't already heard of Honey, it's a free browser extension that automatically finds savings anywhere you shop online – and when I say anywhere, that includes Amazon.
Here's how to use it to maximize your Prime Day savings:
Tip #1: Anytime you buying something on Amazon, Honey double checks to make sure you're actually getting the lowest price. It looks at a bunch of factors like shipping cost, delivery time, taxes, even Prime status. If it finds a better deal, you can swap it out with one click. Easy!
Check this out – I saved $75.81 on this Sony TV, just by choosing a different seller.
Same TV, same delivery, just cheaper. Cha-ching!
Tip #2: Check price history. The price you see is not always the cheapest, even on Prime Day. Honey tracks price changes for every item, so you can see if you're actually getting a good deal.
For example, the price of this camera changed 8 times in 7 days!!! That's just ludicrous.
So unless for some crazy reason you like overpaying, add Honey so you can start saving money and be ready when Prime Day hits!
