We’re all Amazon shoppers! Right? Like, I think everyone shops Amazon for at least a few things! My plumber even told me he orders some of his parts from the retail behemoth! 🤣
As an Amazon Influencer, I’m often given access to insider scoop on Amazon deals, sales, and upcoming events. I love to pass these along to you! Another advantage of being an Amazon Influencer is that I also get an Empty Nest Blessed Amazon Storefront! It full of good stuff, and my assistant, Natalie, and I update it almost daily! On it, you’ll find up-to-date gift guides, as well as picks for everything from fashion to makeup and skincare. You might want to bookmark it for easy and quick access!
This is a good time for me to remind you that, as an Amazon Influencer, I receive a commission on qualifying purchases. 😊
If you’re an Amazon customer, you likely know that Amazon’s Prime Day sale kicks off at midnight PT on Tuesday, October 13, and runs through Wednesday, October 14 (It’s really 48 hours long.), and features incredible savings on more than one million items across every category. It’s only for Prime members. (If you’re not a member, you can sign up HERE to get a free 30-day trial and take advantage of the deals!)

Also, for big savings, consider buying a gift card for yourself, or reloading your own gift card with $40 or more in order to access the $10 promotional credit! The promotional credit expires on November 29, 2020.
How to Shop Amazon’s Prime Day Tip #4: Kick it With Kindle
I love my Kindle Paperwhite! Oh, I still read good, old-fashioned hardcover books sometimes. (I especially prefer hardcover books if it’s something I’m going to refer back to.) But for beach reads, and other light reading, I like my Kindle better.
Suzy’s Tip: When purchasing a Kindle, you’ll have the option to select “Ad-Supported” or “Without Ads.” Trust me on this one—pay the additional $20 and select “Without Ads.“
How to Shop Amazon’s Prime Day Tip #5: Prime Video & Chill
Enjoy a selection of titles to rent or buy at up to 50% off and for a limited time. When you rent a video, you have 30 days to watch it, so plan ahead for an in-house movie date with your man or your gal pals, and find some deals while you’re at it. For a full list of Prime Video deals, click HERE.
