46 products you’ll want to have in your cart ahead of Prime Day

Amazon Prime Day 2022 is approaching. With incredible deals on all kinds of products from tech to fashion to homeware and everything in between, it's the perfect time to grab a bargain. 

When the event starts, buyers can get overwhelmed and forget everything they wanted to buy. Consider adding products to your cart ahead of Prime Day so you don't miss a deal on a product you want or buy things you don't need. 

When is Amazon Prime Day? 

It moves around year to year, but Prime Day 2022 falls on July 12 and 13. Deals will appear at midnight PDT on July 12 and run until 11:59 p.m. PDT on July 13. Some deals will stick around for the entirety of this 48-hour period, while flash sales can last just an hour or two.

How to prepare for Prime Day

Add products to your cart ahead of time

Add any products you have your eye on to your shopping cart before the sale begins. While there's no way of knowing whether their prices will drop, it saves time scouring Amazon during the event. The best deals can sell out quickly, but keeping items you want in your cart will help you spot these discounts and check out before they're gone.

Update shipping and payment details

Don't get held up by having an old address or payment details on your account. The minutes it takes to update them could cause you to miss out on a hot flash deal. Check ahead of time to make sure your shipping and payment information is up to date. 

Sign up for Amazon Prime

Prime Day deals are only for Amazon Prime members. If you aren't already a member, sign up before the event so you don't waste time or miss out. Membership costs $14.99 a month or $139 for a year if you pay upfront. You can also get a 30-day trial membership for free if you haven't been a Prime member within the last 12 months, which is perfect for taking advantage of Prime Day.

Keep checking back during the event

New deals are added throughout the event, so it's worth checking back intermittently if you have a particular product you're hoping to buy. That said, you should also check in as soon as possible after the sale starts so you don't miss top deals that sell out quickly.

Be flexible where possible

Knowing exactly what you want on Prime Day can pay off, but it's also a good idea to be flexible. If you've been eyeing those high-end Sony headphones for six months, but some Bose headphones of equal quality are heavily discounted, it makes sense to take advantage of the deal. That said, for some people or in some cases, only a specific product will do. Know when to compromise and when to hold out for what you want.
