Amazon Prime Day 2019 is almost here!
Amazon Prime Day 2019 is just around the corner. The widely popular sale period takes place on July 15th-16th this year and will officially start Monday, July 15th at midnight PST. Exclusively for its Prime members, Amazon will offer significant discounts and deals on tons of products.
In this post, we will review a couple of ways that you can prepare for Amazon Prime Day so that you can make the most out of the event.
Here are a few tips for getting prepared for the big sale:
Register for an Amazon Prime Account if you Haven’t Already
Our first tip is to sign up for a Prime account with Amazon ahead time so that you are all set and logged in before the sale event even starts. The steps to sign up are very simple.

Start Building your Wish List
Just like Black Friday and Cyber Monday you’ll want to consider what items you’ve been looking to purchase but haven’t yet because you would prefer to wait around for it to go on sale before making a buying decision.
You can use a spreadsheet or document to create your list, or if you’ve registered for an Amazon Prime account, you can simply create a new online wish list through Amazon to log all the products you want to buy.
When developing your wishlist, you can even categorize your items to organize your shopping further. For example, you can create a list of things you’ve wanted to purchase for your home, books you’ve had your eye on or even new tech gadgets you’ve been saving up for.
After you make your list, you can go through it and prioritize the items that are most important to you. Having a detailed wishlist allows you to quickly find the items to add to your cart while providing you with backup products in case some of your choices sell out quick.
Budget and Save Up
To avoid going overboard during the sale start setting a budget that you can stick to. This will provide you with a scope of your shopping needs and limitations. If you have built out your wishlist already, you can use this to develop your budget and then commit to saving up the goal amount that you wish to spend while still checking off the must-have items on your list.
The great thing about knowing the exact dates of Amazon Prime Day 2019 is that you can plan to save and set money aside specifically for the event. Prepping helps avoid the unfortunate situation of overspending or not being able to purchase all the deals you want.
Have Fun and Enjoy Browsing US Products
Our most important tip is to have fun shopping online and exploring the various products that are on sale. Even if you have your wishlist created and budget set, you can still spend some time browsing products that you may like or find useful to add to your cart. We would even suggest adding some additional cushion to your budget specifically for miscellaneous items that you discover during the sale.
Prime Day is a sale that is celebrated by millions. Since it only comes around once a year, you’ll want to make sure to get the most out of the big sale. By preparing ahead of time for the shopping holiday and implementing the tips, we’ve mentioned here you can feel more assured in your buying decisions so that you’re enjoying the event while still optimizing your discounts.
Happy online shopping and may Amazon Prime Day 2019 be the best yet!
