Amazon Prime Day 2019 will begin July 15, and we’re getting ready to bring you all the best deals on Wirecutter picks and recommendations from our expert staff. Bookmark our Deals page, follow Wirecutter Deals on Twitter, and sign up for our daily deals newsletter to see the best deals from around the Web on Prime Day—and every day.
Prime Day is coming, and with it tens of thousands of deals. Because you surely don’t want to spend every minute of Prime Day on your laptop scavenging for deals (that’s our job!), let me offer a tip: Use the Amazon app, available for iPhone and Android. The app offers a great experience plus mobile access to the same marketplace you can find on the main Amazon site, including advance Prime Day deals and promotions. Amazon adds more Prime Day–specific content to its app with every passing year. Last year, for instance, we saw a number of app-exclusive deals that you couldn’t get on a laptop.
Once you download the app, tap the Prime Day banner—it’s presently displaying a days to Prime Day countdown. You’ll find pre–Prime Day promotions as well as previews of the larger-scale Prime Day events (so far the the recent Taylor Swift concert and an upcoming celebrity Twitch Prime live gaming event have been featured heavily). You’ll also see a “Get ready for Prime Day” section with a tutorial showing some of the features of the app, such as how to “watch” an item.
