Amazon Prime Day is close: what you can buy at a discount
Amazon Prime Day kicks off at 03:00 on June 21 and will include discounts on over 2 million items for Prime members - roughly double last year. More details about the discounts told the publication CNBC.
EMarketer predicts total US sales on Prime Day will jump 17,3% year on year to $ 12,18 billion. Sales made exclusively on Amazon on Prime Day will grow 18,3% from 2020 to $ 7,31 , XNUMX billion
“That's an incredible amount,” said Dave Kender, editor-in-chief of Reviewed, but “most of the products aren't that exciting.”
“There will be real finds among the proposals,” he added. "You just have to work hard to find them."
Naturally, there will be big discounts on Amazon-branded products, including two TVs. Echo Dot and Fire TV for $ 99,99.

This is a great time to start stocking up on summer travel supplies or school supplies. State bag company will offer half the discount on children's backpackwhich usually retails for $ 95 and Rockland has travel bag on wheels for $ 50, which is about 55% less than usual.
Some of the best deals this year will be on small kitchen appliances such as electric kettles and coffee makers, according to Nathan Burrow, senior discount editor at Wirecutter.
Burrow suggests that deep fryers may be among the hottest items overall, eclipsing even the Instant Pot, which has been one of the best-selling products for many years.
Of course, you must be an Amazon Prime member to take advantage of the Prime Day offers.
If you haven't joined yet, it's free for 30 days. After that, you can cancel or subscribe to your monthly membership for about $ 13 or pay $ 119 for a year. For bargain hunters, note that the membership also includes free music, movies, and ebooks, as well as discounts on groceries at Whole Foods.
Then download the Amazon app, scroll through the upcoming deals and mark the items of interest as “observables,” advised Julie Ramhold, consumer analyst at DealNews.com. When the price drops, you will receive a notification.
When you see that the deal is active, immediately add the item to your cart. Some of the offers sell out quickly, Ramhold said. Once the item is in your cart, you have 15 minutes to decide whether to make a purchase or not.

If you're in the mood for a specific product and don't see it in upcoming sales, you can create a wishlist and Amazon will alert you if it becomes part of Prime Day discounts.
However, some of the best deals are not exclusive to Amazon at all.
Best Buy is already selling Roku Express for only $ 29,99, and the headphones Jabra - for $ 179,99, which is $ 50 cheaper. On sales days for Office Depot, which run from June 21 to June 23, Acer Chromebook will be discounted by 25% - up to $ 169,99.
But buyers should also beware, according to a recent report from the American CPA Institute, as vaccination rates rise and the economy recovers from the coronavirus, post-pandemic spikes, or so-called revenge purchases, could quickly lead to cost overruns.
Already, 2 out of 5 Americans said that the increase in the number of purchases on the Internet makes it difficult to meet the monthly budget.
About 39% of those surveyed said they often don't know how much they've spent until they see their monthly statement.
“Salespeople have powerful strategies that encourage you to spend more,” said Neil Stern, a member of the financial literacy committee at the association.
“Determine what you plan to buy and how much you will spend before you start shopping,” he said. "When there is a plan, then there are more chances not to overspend the money."
Also, Kender advises, always look elsewhere for the best deals before buying. Open a new tab and search for the product model number to see prices on other websites.
And finally, read user reviews, study price history to determine how good the product and discount are.
