How do you know if you’re getting a good deal?

Prime Day may be known for its discounts, but like any buying holiday, it’s up to the consumer to make sure they’re actually getting a good deal. In general, we’ve seen some really great discounts on Xbox consoles, Amazon Echo devices, Instant Pots, and 4K TVs. However, there are quite a few discounts floating around that won’t really be saving you very much money. To help you out, here are some tips for spotting a good deal:

Filter your deals through a trusted source

The easiest way to ensure you find the best possible discounts is to have someone do all the hard work for you. If you bookmark this page for later, we’ll have our entire editorial staff digging through the depths of Amazon to deliver great savings to you. If you have trust issues, though, we’ll let you in on few of the tricks and techniques we use for spotting great deals.

Do a quick Google search

If you find yourself staring down a set of pots and pans, an air fryer, or a gorgeous soundbar but aren’t sure if it’s the best possible price available, head to Google. One quick Google search on a specific product will often pull up pricing information across the board. If it’s actually on sale, then prices from the likes of Walmart, Best Buy, and the manufacturer page will likely be higher.

Check price histories

This may seem like a labor-intensive process, but it’s actually really easy to do. There’s a website called CamelCamelCamel that tracks and displays the price history of any item sold on Amazon. Though this only works for Amazon products, it’s an easy way to see whether or not you’re getting the best deal historically or not.

Read the fine print and comments

Shopping online is a lot less dangerous than it used to be, but that doesn’t mean you can just stop reading the fine print. A lot of retailers will hide important details where you are least likely to look. Most commonly, this happens with third-party sellers who are trying to get a leg up on their competition by offering deep discounts on refurbished tech.

Best 4K monitor Presidents Day deal
Dell S2721QS 27-inch 4K monitor — $230, was $300

Tremendous value is on display with the Dell S2721QS. It’s a high quality 4K monitor that comes in at 27 inches and has a refresh rate of 60Hz. That refresh rate makes it good for some light gaming, in addition to being a great way to watch the best new movies to stream on Netflix, Hulu, Prime Video, Max (HBO), and more. It’s perhaps put to use best as simply an extension of your laptop or as the primary monitor for your desktop PC. It provides great screen real estate, dual 3-watt speakers, and ComfortView Plus, which is an always-on low blue light screen. Whether for work or for play, the Dell S2721QS is made to sit out for long stretches and offers features you’ll find in many of the best monitors at a fraction of the cost.
