Prime Day 2020.
If you love sales, this long-awaited mega one (13-14 October) from the e-commerce giant – it was postponed from July – means a jammed packed 48 hours of online shopping.
A sale that’s open to both Prime members and non-members with stockists that includes big US brand names (see below). If you aren’t already a Prime member, the sale is a good reason to join, and it’s free for the first 30-days (thereafter it’s $2.99 per month). Why? Because membership unlocks over 1 million discounted items under their “Lightning Deals” section and is one of many ways to score some solid savings.
While you get your trusty HSBC Credit Card in hand (click here to find out how you can get up to $200 cash reward), here are some other pro tips to get the most out of this year’s Prime Day sale.
– The best bargains are available in limited quantities so create a Wish List and get alerts when said item goes on sale.
– Lightning Deals sell fast so once it’s in your cart, don’t delay you have just 15 minutes to complete the purchase.
– Anything Amazon-branded will be getting a price slash, so if you’ve been waiting for a Kindle, Echo Dot or Fire Tablet, this is the time to snap it up.
– Look for bundles, items like a Fire TV Stick or Echo Dot might get thrown in as a freebie with a more expensive Amazon-branded item.
– Load up on Household and Baby items. $100 expenditure receives an additional 30% discount and $22 off.
– Spend $80 on Home Essentials and unlock $20 savings.
– Purchase gift cards if you can’t decide what to buy now. Purchase at least $50 worth of Amazon.sg Gift Cards in a single transaction and a bonus $10 Gift Card will automatically be added to your Amazon account.
Now that you’ve been tipped-off, here’s 10 big brand name items you should get your hands on, now!
Zapp Flex, Quinny, $499 (U.P. $933.21)
It’s hard to beat a 47% discount on this easy to manoeuver three-wheeled stroller with an extendable sun canopy and Maxi-Cosi car seat adapters.
Duo 7-in-1, Instapot, $209 (U.P. $278.90)
Finally, this multi-functional pressure cooker is available in Singapore and the hype is real. It cooks up to 70% faster than conventional cooking methods so that means dishes like pulled pork, bone broth and even homemade yoghurt can be whipped up in less time than it takes to finish a gym workout.
Lego and Duplo sets, Various $25-30% off
If you’ve been allowing the kids more screen time than usual (no judgment here), how about rewarding them with some new Lego and Duplo sets? There’s a wide range of sets available from Lego Disney, Lego Friends and even the Millenium Falcon Starship Building Kit up for grabs.
QuietComfort 35 Wireless Headphone, Bose, $349 (U.P. $499)
Consistently one of the best wireless headphones on the market with a stellar noise-cancelling function, it now comes with voice access to Google Assistant and Alexa making it a whole lot easier to juggle all your Zoom meetings.
Kindle Paperwhite 32 GB, $162.82 (U.P. $251.90)
A Prime exclusive deal, the international version of this e-reader is Kindle’s lightest Paperwhite with 32GB storage and waterproof so you won’t be running out of storage space anytime soon. It does incur a small delivery charge but the savings are substantial.
Star Wars Droid Inventor Kit, $95.40 (U.P. $159)
It’s never too late to relive your childhood and revive your love for Star Wars. An easy to build a droid, the Droid Inventor app guides the Droid to learn new skills like head spins and self-navigation.
Pixel 4 64GB, $767.09 (U.P. $1,015.19)
A deal this good – it’s 24% off – even Apple fanboys might be tempted to switch to an Android platform. A Prime exclusive deal that’s shipped and sold by Amazon US (so there won’t be any issues of authenticity), it’s an unlocked model so just switch sim cards and you’re good to go.
Osmo Action Camera 4K HDR, DJI, $273.34 (U.P. $519)
Another Prime exclusive deal shipped and sold by Amazon US. This action camera with dual front and rear screens record crystal clear videos at 4K/60fps at 100Mbps video, perfect for all your wakeboarding and running adventures.
Oakley Sunglasses, Various, 20% off
Prime members get access to a wide range of Oakley’s most popular models (male and female), from the Holbrook Square, Tie Breaker to the Half Jacket 2.0. There’s a small shipping charge levied but if you bundle up orders with friends, it’ll be more than worth it.
Inspire HR, Fitbit, $99 (U.P. $158)
Complement your at-home workouts and weekend hikes with a new Fitbit heart rate tracker. Priced at just under $100, it’s a nice bit of arm candy to reward yourself for your new active lifestyle. It helps to know that it’s water-resistant up to 50 metres.
