As for what else will be on sale during Prime Day, it’s usually a mixed bag. Admittedly, many Prime Day deals are either not great or on products that aren’t worth your time — but you’ll probably come across a couple of things you’re really interested in.
If you’re going to participate in Prime Day, the last thing you want to do is blindly open Amazon’s homepage on June 21. It’ll be easy to either get lost clicking through product pages for hours, or get overwhelmed by the plethora of deals available.
It’s also a good idea to use a price tracker like CamelCamelCamel when considering any discount. Either via the website or through the browser extension, Camel lets you check out a product’s price history dating back months and even years in some cases.
Finally, make sure to check out Amazon’s competition. Retailers like Walmart, Best Buy, Target and others will have their own “anti-Prime Day” savings events happening at the same time, and they usually match some of the biggest Prime Day deals.
That was especially true last year when it came to tech — many of the worthwhile Prime Day deals on gadgets popped up at Best Buy, and since it has no Prime-member requirement, anyone could take advantage of them.
The volume of deals available will be daunting, but we sift through them all and pick out the best ones to make Prime Day a bit easier for you. We’ll also be on the lookout for matching and competing sales from Best Buy, Walmart and others.
