In case you didn’t already know, here at OOHPod, we’re passionate about shopping.

This year, on Tuesday 16th and Wednesday 17th July, Amazon Prime Day is the most anticipated shopping extravaganza of the year. For 2024, it's set to offer incredible deals across a wide range of products, from electronics and home appliances to fashion and beauty.

To make the most out of your Prime Day shopping experience, follow these top tips and don’t forget to utilise the convenience of OOHPod lockers for your deliveries.

1. Prepare Your Wishlist in Advance

Before Prime Day begins, create a wishlist of items you’re interested in. This allows you to keep track of the products you want and easily check if they go on sale. You can also use Amazon’s “Watch this Deal” feature to receive notifications from Alexa when a deal starts.

2. Set a Budget

With the excitement of deals, it’s easy to overspend. Setting a budget helps you stay within your financial limits and prioritise purchases. Consider what you actually need and stick to it.

3. Compare Prices

Even on Prime Day, not every deal is the best deal. Use price comparison tools and websites to ensure you’re getting the best possible price. Check the price history of items to see if the current deal is genuinely a bargain.

4. Use Amazon’s Tools and Extensions

Amazon provides several tools to enhance your shopping experience:

 Amazon Assistant: A browser extension that helps you compare prices, track orders, and find deals.

Alexa: Use Amazon’s voice assistant to check deals and make purchases hands-free.

Prime Day Sneak Peek: Check this feature for early access to deals and plan your shopping strategy accordingly.

5. Use OOHPod Lockers for Deliveries

One of the most convenient ways to receive your Prime Day purchases is through OOHPod lockers. These secure, self-service lockers allow you to pick up your packages at a time that suits you, eliminating the worry of missed deliveries. Here’s how to use them:

How to Use OOHPod Lockers:

Sign up on OOHPod.com and get your unique  OOH identity number or “OOHID”.

Send to an OOHPod Locker: During checkout, instead of entering your home address, enter your OOHID and the address of the locker where you want to collect your parcel.

Receive a Notification: Once your parcel is delivered to the locker, you’ll receive a notification with a unique code.

Pick Up Your Package: Go to the locker, enter the code, and retrieve your parcel.

Using OOHPod lockers ensures your parcels are safe, secure, and available for pickup at your convenience.

6. Check OOHPod Oversize locations

If you’re planning on buying items which won’t fit in a locker, check out the OOHPod locations page for locations that accept oversize items.

7. Check for Lightning Deals

Lightning Deals are limited-time offers that can disappear quickly. Keep an eye on these deals throughout Prime Day, but act fast – they’re known to sell out in minutes. Setting up Alexa notifications can help you stay on top of these fleeting discounts.

8. Join Prime Early Access

If you’re a Prime member, you often get early access to certain deals. Make sure your Prime membership is active to take full advantage of this benefit. Consider signing up for a free trial if you’re not already a member.

9. Read Reviews

Before making a purchase, read product reviews to ensure the item meets your expectations. Verified customer reviews provide valuable insights into the quality and functionality of a product.

10. Be Ready When It Starts

Prime Day deals can start at midnight, so being ready as soon as the event kicks off can help you snag the best offers. Have your devices charged and your payment methods updated to avoid any last-minute hiccups.

Happy shopping!
