Amazon Prime Day 2022 is almost here!

The widely popular sale period takes place on July 12th-13th

Amazon Prime Day will officially starts July 12th, at midnight PST. Exclusively for its Prime members, Amazon will offer significant discounts and deals on tons of products. This post reviews a couple of ways to prepare for Amazon Prime Day to 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 of time so that you are all set and logged in before the sale event even starts. The steps to sign up are very simple. You can learn more here. Suppose you are shopping from outside the US and are an OPAS member. In that case, you can add your custom OPAS US address into the account settings to receive your Amazon packages at OPAS and then use our package forwarding service to forward them to your country.

Start building your wish list

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 them 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 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 gadgets you’ve been saving up for.

After making your list, you can go through it and prioritize the essential items. Having a detailed wishlist allows you to quickly find the items to add to your cart while providing you with backup products if some of your choices sell out quickly.

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 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 2022 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 on sale. Even if you have your wishlist and budget set, you can still spend some time browsing products that you may like or find helpful to add to your cart. We would even suggest adding some additional cushions to your budget specifically for miscellaneous items you discover during the sale.

Prime Day is a sale that is celebrated by millions. However, 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 for the shopping holiday and implementing the tips mentioned here, you can feel more assured in your buying decisions to enjoy the event while still optimizing your discounts.

Happy online shopping, and may Amazon Prime Day 2022 be the best yet!
