Amazon Prime Day, an annual shopping event for Prime members, is coming up on July 15. Prime Day will last 48 hours, kicking up what’s sure to be a tornado of deals. If you’re not a Prime member yet, you can still shop these specials by signing up or trying it out for free for 30 days. We’re still two weeks away from the big midsummer sale event, and while some good deals have already begun, there are some things you can do to get the best deals for you and your family. Here are some ways to make sure you’re a pro at using Amazon before Prime Day.

You can share with one other adult and you can even give your kids access (the kids will need your permission for any purchases). You’ll share the same benefits, like free next-day or two-day shipping and Prime video streaming. Use the 30-day free trial If you only want to use Amazon for the Prime Day deals, then sign up for the 30-day free trial. You’ll have the same benefits as paying Prime users for the entire trial period. You can always cancel after Prime Day is over to avoid membership charges — set a calendar reminder if you plan on canceling.
