Microsoft Edge tools for Amazon Prime Day 2021Source: Windows Central

In 2021, the Amazon Prime Day sales event will take place in the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, Mexico, and several other countries on June 21 through 22, and during these 48 hours, customers will access many bargains and exclusive deals on thousands of products across the site. Some of which include items like desktop computers, laptops, phones, appliances, accessories, and more.

However, since you will come across many deals in such an event, it can be easy to lose control and end up buying things you do not need. Or jump into a deal you think is worth it, when in reality, it has been manipulated into making you believe it is a good deal when it is not. But don't worry, if you plan to shop during Prime Day 2021, you can use the shopping tools built into Microsoft Edge, including Collections, Coupons, price history and comparison, and the extension support to save time, hassles, and money.

Of course, in addition to the tools built into Microsoft Edge, you will need an Amazon Prime membership to take advantage of the deals. The subscription costs $119 per year (or $12.99 per month), but you will also get many perks, including free and faster shipping, access to the company's video, music, gaming stream services, and many other benefits.

In this Windows 10 guide, we will walk you through the steps to leverage Microsoft Edge on Windows 10 to make shopping during Amazon Prime Day less stressful and potentially save you money.

How to use extensions to find Prime Day deals Edge

In addition to the built-in shopping tool, you can also install extensions that can extend the Microsoft Edge ability to get the best deals while saving money during Amazon Prime Day (and everyday shopping).

Amazon Assistant

Amazon Assistant is the official extension from the online retailer. The extension checks the product page you are viewing on an external website (such as Best Buy or Microsoft Store), and it surfaces the same item with a direct link, current price, price information over 30 days, and related product.

Although this extension has been designed to bring you to Amazon when viewing products on another site, it can also be an excellent tool to shop in the retailer's website since it can show valuable pricing history, related product information, and when signed in with your Amazon account, you can use the extension to quickly build a wish list, view your orders, and access current deals.

To install the Amazon Assistant, use these steps:

  1. Open Microsoft Edge.
  2. Open the Edge Add-ons store to install the Amazon Assistant.
  3. Click the Get button.

  6. Click the Get started button.

  7. Continue with the on-screen directions to complete the tour.
  8. Sign in with your Amazon account (if applicable).

Once you complete the steps, you can start using the extensions to shop during Prime Day. If you happen to be shopping in another online store, the extension will show you an alert letting you know a better deal is available on Amazon.

Keepa

Keepa is a freemium service that tracks and provides the price history of Amazon products. The extension works by embedding the history information within the product page. When browsing products on Amazon, you review the pricing history to determine if you are actually getting a good deal. If you are not sure about the discount, you can sign up with Keepa to track the item and receive alerts when the price drops to your desired amount.

To install the Keepa extension on Microsoft Edge, use these steps:

  1. Open Microsoft Edge.
  2. Open the Edge Add-ons store to install Keepa.

After you complete the steps, you can browse any product on Amazon, and the extension will embed the price history for the item at the bottom of the description to help you make a more informed decision on the purchase.

The Camelizer

The Camelizer is another extension for Edge that connects to the CamelCamelCamel service to show you the price history of virtually every Amazon product. Unlike the Amazon Assistant extension, The Camelizer only works when browsing products on Amazon. However, the price history extends beyond 30 days and includes pricing from products sold and fulfilled by Amazon and third-party sellers.

Similar to the price history feature built into Microsoft Edge, the extension provides the pricing information to help you determine whether the deal is worth it. Or if the price was recently increased and then reduced to give you the illusion of a considerable discount.

You can also sign up with the service to create a wish list and get alerts as soon as the product reaches your desired price during the Prime Day 2021 sales event (and beyond).

To install The Camelizer extension on the default browser for Windows 10, use these steps:

  1. Open Microsoft Edge.
  2. Open the Edge Add-ons store to install The Camelizer.
  3. Click the Get button.
