Tips for Scoring the Best Fitness Deals on Prime Day
You can maximize your savings and avoid missing out on the best Prime Day fitness deals by completing certain tasks to earn promotional credits, joining waitlists, using Alexa to get notifications when deals go live, and applying coupons to eligible items for additional discounts.
Complete Actions on Amazon Before Prime Day
You can earn credits to use towards your Prime Day purchase by buying certain items or performing certain tasks on Amazon, such as:
Watch for Lightning Deals
Amazon offers lightning deals that allow you to save even more on various items throughout Prime Day. The kicker is that only a limited stock is available, and the deals end after they are 100 percent claimed or a timer runs out (usually after a few hours).
Furthermore, if you add a lightning deal product to your cart, you only have 15 minutes to check out, or you lose the deal.
You might not see a lighting deal on big-ticket items like squat racks or treadmills, but you may be able to get one on products like protein bars, gym apparel, and smaller equipment like high-quality kettlebells.
Check out Amazon’s current lightning deals — you can even filter by Prime Early Access deals to see which items are on sale now. If the deals on the items you want aren’t available yet, you can filter by Upcoming deals to receive push notifications on your mobile device when they go live.
If you miss out on a lightning deal, you may still be able to get the item you want for the sale price. Just click “Join Waitlist” to receive notifications if the product suddenly becomes available, which may happen if another customer doesn’t check out before their 15 minutes are up.
Use Alexa for Reminders and Exclusive Deals
You can ask Alexa to notify you when deals on your desired items become available. However, you’ll need an Amazon Echo device and the Amazon Alexa app to receive deal notifications on Prime Day.
To get alerts when your favorite fitness items go on sale, you first need to add products to your Amazon Wish List, shopping cart, or Saved for Later list. Then, open the Amazon Alexa app, head to your settings, and click “Notifications.”
From there, tap “Amazon Shopping” and turn on Deal Recommendations.
On Prime Day, ask Alexa, “Alexa, what are my notifications?” Alexa will then let you know about the deals it’s found. It can alert you to deals up to 24 hours before they go live. If you want to buy the item, and the discount is already activated, you can then tell Alexa to make the purchase for you.
What’s more, you can ask Alexa, “Alexa, what are your deals?” throughout the day to get access to deals up to an hour before they go live on Amazon.com. You may also potentially get exclusive deals on fitness products that aren’t available on the website.
Watch Prime’s Live TikTok
Between 10 pm and 12 am on July 11, Amazon Prime will go live on TikTok to host a game show where viewers can play along to unlock special deals. Click here to register.
Sign up for a Prime Visa Card
With a Prime Visa Card, you can unlock additional savings and earn rewards points you can apply to your Amazon purchases. Upon approval (which only takes a couple of minutes), eligible Prime members get a $200 Amazon gift card instantly that they can use for Prime Day purchases.
Additional benefits you can get with a Prime Visa Card include 10 percent back or more on eligible Prime Day purchases and six percent cash back at Whole Foods Market on July 11 and 12.
Look for Prime Coupons
Amazon has a large library of products with additional coupons you can apply at checkout. Visit the Amazon Coupons page to unlock additional savings.
Check the Price History
Sometimes, Prime Day markdowns aren’t as good as they initially appear. To ensure you’re getting the best deal possible, check sites like CamelCamelCamel or install the Camelizer Chrome extension to look up the price history of your desired item. If you see that the price has been lower than it is on Prime Day at other times throughout the year, you may want to wait to make your purchase.
