If you are like me, it seems your finger is never quick enough to help ensure you get the deal you want during Amazon Lightning deals. I know how frustrating this can be, as I’ve had it happen to me on more than one occasion. Here are some tricks to helping you get the deal you want!
The best tip is to always add the item to your cart no more than 15 minutes before the deal goes live. When the deals are really good, I will post a reminder so that you can do this. Then, when the deal goes live, you can see if the price is what you want to pay and if so, just checkout and it will be yours! Keep in mind that not all items will adjust automatically, so there isn’t always 100% success with this method (although it usually works).
Now, if you happen to miss out, it is always very important to join the waitlist. People forget to check out all of the time and so that frees up products for others to buy. You have only 15 minutes from the time you add something to your cart to proceed to checkout, or it will be removed and someone else can purchase it (whether you get it right away or through the waitlist). Once you on are on the waitlist, a couple of things will happen.
1 – Purchase the Item Immediately. Sometimes, as soon as you hit to join the wait list, you can purchase it. So, if that happens, makes sure you check out right away so you can be sure that you get the item you want.
2 – Stay on Amazon. If you click to join the waitlist, do NOT leave Amazon. If you are cleared for purchase, you will receive a pop up in the upper corner of your screen. You still still have only 15 minutes to checkout, so make sure you get it right away. If you are not on Amazon and are cleared from the waitlist and don’t purchase, you will end up missing out.
