Amazon Prime has over hundreds of millions of subscribers worldwide with over 100 million each in USA and India. Still, one of the few primary offerings of the subscription that paid users often forget to utilise to its fullest is the Prime search option, which is the most efficient way to search Amazon Prime.
The default search on Amazon will give you the best possible deals and offers, which might or might not be covered under your Prime subscription scheme with free and same or one-day deliveries. To ensure that you can find all the Amazon Prime deals when you search the website or within the app, here is a guide to help you switch on Amazon Prime search to make the most out of your subscription.
Note: While it’s a possibility that Prime members will see several exclusive deals via Prime search, it’s also possible that certain items which don’t come under the umbrella of Amazon Prime might not show up — even if they are cheaper alternatives.

How to search Amazon Prime on the app?
Search for anything you wish to buy or explore using the default search bar at the top of your Amazon app. Once your search is complete, you’ll notice the number of results at the top alongside a toggle button beside Prime icon and a Filter button.
Tap on the toggle button beside the Prime icon so that it turns to orange (as shown in the screenshot below). Once you’ve switched on Prime search on your Amazon app, you’ll notice that the number of results has decreased — 398 to 268 in our case — and you’ll now only see Amazon Prime fulfilled items in your search.
