There are certain sales we love to highlight on our calendars: Black Friday, Cyber Monday, Memorial Day Weekend, Nordstrom's Anniversary sale, etc. But the one we always highly anticipate is Amazon Prime Day, or how we like to call it Christmas in July. Because just like Christmas, we anxiously await this bonafide deal event with open arms (and wallets).
And if this year, which if you haven't taken note is July 15 and July 16, is anything like last year's sale (which only lasted 36 hours, btw) you'll get access to everything from great beauty deals to must-have clothes and accessories for 48 whole hours.
Basically, what we're trying to say is that you can't miss out on this major shopping event. So, make sure you don't spend all of your money on the best Fourth of July sales (even though this year there are great deals, too) and follow our step by step guide so you're ready to go when Amazon Prime Day arrives.
Step 2: Download the Amazon App on your iPhone or Android. There you'll be able to track the best deals, and even view them before they're live.
Step 3: Go the extra mile and make sure you read through Amazon's Prime Day Insider Guide. Here you will learn what to expect during this year's 48 hours of sale.
Step 4: Charge your laptop and your phone. You don't want them dying on you when the deals go live!
Step 5: Stretch your fingers and get ready to shop! Make sure you have a list prior to shopping of the things you know you can't miss out on so you don't end up overspending. Or make sure you're following along our Amazon Prime tag so you stay up-to-date on all the best deals to shop before, during, and after.
Step 6: Do a little dance! Your deals will be at your doorstep sooner rather than later!
