The best time to shop on Amazon is definitely on Prime Day. If you miss Prime Day, the next best chance is on Big Deal Days, and towards the end of the year during Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

One helpful tip is to search for the items you want beforehand and add them to your Amazon watchlist. Check in every now and then to see if the price has dropped. Once it reaches its lowest, go ahead and make your purchase.
