Whether you’re a pro at shopping Amazon savings events, or if you’re brand-new to them, here’s what you need to know about the five-day deals extravaganza.

If you’re a frequent Amazon shopper, this is a no-brainer. The Prime Visa offers Prime members 5% cash back on purchases made at Amazon’s website, Amazon Fresh and Whole Foods. It also earns 5% for travel booked through Chase, as well as 2% cash back on restaurants, gas stations and local transit (like rideshares). There’s no annual fee, but it does require a Prime membership. The card could put money back in your pocket with little effort if you shop at these places often. And when you sign up right now, you’ll get an Amazon gift card upon approval.

CNET has an overview of the Prime Visa, too.

Set up deal alerts in the app

As you might imagine, Amazon’s smart digital assistant comes in pretty handy around events like Prime Day. You can have your Alexa devices inform you when the Big Spring Sale is about to begin by asking for a reminder about the event. Better yet, Prime members can ask Alexa to notify them about deals on products in their Wish List, Cart or Save for Later lists — and even place an order on their behalf so they can shop the sale hands-free.

Keep an eye on other retailers

The CNET Deals team will be covering the event from the minute it starts, right up until the last minute when the deals end. You can follow the main CNET account on X (formerly Twitter) for the best of the best deals, along with the CNET Deals account for a wider stream of deals.
