Seven Tips for Shopping on Amazon Prime Day!

It is the most wonderful time of the year! Amazon Prime Day!

Amazon Prime Day was created a few years ago for Amazon.com to boost sales of their products in the summertime. This event was similar to Black Friday events, but it also included limited time deals, subscribe and save deals with coupons, and deals that lasted all day. The products offered on Amazon Prime Day usually range from electronics and clothing to food products and household items.


Here are seven tips for shopping on Amazon Prime Day:

Tip #1 - Remember to download the Amazon app to receive notifications of limited time deals.


Tip #2 - At the beginning of Amazon Prime Day, remember to examine all of the limited time deals and then add these deals to your notification/watch list on the Amazon app.


Tip #3 - Determine if you need to purchase an annual subscription to Amazon Prime, Amazon Music Unlimited, or Amazon Kindle Unlimited before the day begins.

Tip #4 - Purchasing Amazon gift cards from Kroger or other stores that offer fuel points for gift card purchases.


Tip #5 - Use online shopping portals that offer rebates or airline miles for using their link to access Amazon. These shopping portals can include E-bates, American Airlines, United Airlines, and others.



Tip #6 - Set a budget before you begin shopping on Amazon Prime Day. It is easy to spend more money than you anticipate spending.



Tip #7 - Develop a list of items that usually appear on your weekly/monthly shopping list, then look for these items when the Amazon Prime list becomes available.


These simple tips can help everyone create a strategy for one of the most important savings days of the year! Remember to prepare a strategy and you can save money on items that you will purchase anyway.

This post contains affiliate links to help you build your shopping list and travel list for your family. We are passionate about the product and the experiences listed in this post, but we also wanted to provide easy links you can click to purchase products for your busy lifestyle.

Have a great week and plan for the weekend!

24 Hour Adventure in Minneapolis - The Nickelodeon Universe Experience & American Girl Experience in the Mall of America


Recently, we had an exciting opportunity to travel to Minneapolis for a 24 hour adventure. We left on a Saturday at 10am from DFW Airport and we arrived in Minneapolis by 4pm (with a brief layover in Denver, CO). In Minneapolis, we traveled via the light rail from the airport to the Mall of America (a 10 minute ride).



When we arrived there, we walked through the mall with our luggage and headed to our hotel (the JW Marriott in the Mall). After organizing our items in the room, we headed down to the Nickelodeon Experience. We had a GREAT time!


Then, we visited the American Girl store and it was EPIC for our little one! After everything we experienced in the day, we headed to the Flyover America and it was a great way to end the evening, but WAIT there's more! We grabbed some noodles from Noodles and Company and we were SURPRISED by a light display (with amazing music) in the Nickelodeon Experience.

We definitely enjoyed the experience! About Weekends Count - Weekends Count is a Millennial Family Travel, Fun, Food and Activities blog based in the Dallas-Fort Worth area in Texas. We review hotels, travel and household items, and millennial family experiences!

Have a great week and plan for the weekend!

If you are considering spending your weekend in Fort Worth, here are some places you should visit with your family.

Landscape - Things to Do With Kids This Weekend in Fort Worth, Texas

American Airlines C.R. Smith Museum
If your kids love planes, than a visit to the American Airlines C.R. Smith Museum is a great option, particular after leaving or before heading back to DFW International Airport. Kids can learn about the history of flight, why airplanes fly, how airplanes are maintained, and the life and career of American Airlines President C.R. Smith.

Fort Worth Zoo
As one of the nation's best zoos, the Fort Worth Zoo does not disappoint.  Kids who love reptiles and fish will enjoy the Museum of Living Art. The African Savanna brings ostriches, zebras, and giraffes together in one area.

Penguin Fort Worth Zoo

Log Cabin Village
Located near the Fort Worth Zoo, Log Cabin Village features a gristmill, a blacksmith shop, a smokehouse, a school, a garden, and several log cabins that give children a glimpse of how people lived before electricity was commonplace.

Fort Worth Botanic Garden
The Fort Worth Botanic Garden is a great way to learn about nature and get some exercise at the same time by walking. The Botanic Garden features a Japanese garden with koi ponds, cactus garden, rose garden, backyard vegetable garden, a compost outpost, and the Native Texas Boardwalk.

Botanical Research Institute of Texas
Kids can learn about grasses, vegetables, fruits, seeds, and flowers at the Botanical Research Institute of Texas, or BRIT. In addition to providing exhibits for the public, BRIT also serves as a research center.

Fort Worth Museum of Science and History
Your future scientists will enjoy spending part of their weekend at the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History. Popular exhibits include DinoLabs, the Energy Gallery, the Children's Museum, Innovation Studios, and the Cattle Raisers Museum.

Children's Museum - Fort Worth Museum of Science and History

National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame
Located next to the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History, the National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame shows that cowboys weren't the only Western heroes, a lesson that is just as important for sons as it is for daughters.

SeaQuest Interactive Aquarium
At SeaQuest, kids can feed and touch many of the animals there.  Kids also get the opportunity to learn about the animals that live in different habitats around the world.

Fort Worth Stockyards
Find out why Fort Worth is known as the city of Cowboys and Culture at the Fort Worth Stockyards.  The area is filled with celebrations of the city's Western Heritage. Below are some of the family-friendly spots in the Stockyards.

Risky's Steakhouse - Fort Worth Stockyards

Fort Worth Cattle Drive
Every day at 11:30 am and 4:30 am, you can witness a recreation of the Historic Cattle Drives through Fort Worth along the Chisolm Trail with a modern-day cattle drive down Exchange Avenue in the Stockyards.

Cattle Pen Maze
You can watch the cattle drive from the observation deck above the Cattle Pen Maze. Modeled after a western cattle pen, family members can find out who can get through the maze first.

Pawnee Bill's Wild West Show
Every Saturday at 2:30pm and 4:30pm, kids of all ages can watch the recreation of the wild west show that toured the nation over 125 years ago. Kids will be entertained by roping, shooting, and riding tricks.


Grapevine Vintage Railroad
If your kids love Thomas the Tank Engine or The Polar Express, they will definitely enjoy the Grapevine Vintage Railroad. Grapevine, Texas is north of Fort Worth, but also in Tarrant County.  Passengers can board the train in Grapevine and ride along the Cotton Belt Route to the Fort Worth Stockyards to visit the area for a while before returning to Grapevine. Plan at least five hours for the entire trip.

National Multicultural Western Heritage Museum and Hall of Fame
Here at the National Multicultural Western Heritage Museum and Hall of Fame, kids can learn about Vaqueros, Buffalo Soldiers, Native American Chiefs, and the Tuskegee Airmen.  Kids can also enjoy storytelling on Saturday afternoons from 1pm to 3pm.

Weekend Fashion - Mary Jane Oxford Pumps for Work and Play

As a working mom, I HAVE to have good shoes. My day usually involves constant walking and standing for almost 10 hours straight. From my 5:30am alarm, the commute, and the 7:30am start time at work, I constantly have a need to wear good shoes. Priority #1 is a good fit, Priority #2 is STYLE! I LOVE stylish shoes, but the more comfortable, the better. I also love a good black shoe with height as well. As a woman of shorter stature, the heel height is very important. The moral of the daily story is...if you do not have good shoes, you typically do not have a good day.

Recently, I was selected by the J. Adams company to review their Mary Jane Oxford Pumps.- Kym shoes. These shoes were incredibly cute and super fashionable. I would probably select these does as as a weekend shoe with a cute outfit. These usually are meant for feet that are slightly larger than mine, but I would recommend purchasing a half-size down.

Shoes can definitely take you from place to place, but you want to make sure that you are comfortable during the entire journey! Purchase great shoes that will take you from place to place in style!

Have a great week and plan for the weekend!

Sincerely,

The @WeekendsCount Family!
