Hello, Darlings! Today I am going to share My Amazon Favorites-Amazon Prime Day June 21-22. Amazon Prime Day is a major event where Amazon will slash prices and offer deals for a 48 hour period. For 2021, Amazon has already started promoting and reducing items and other major retailers such as Target, Walmart, and Best Buy are matching prices (especially on electronics).
This is a good opportunity to pick up some needed gift items for birthday or early Christmas. This year they have been giving $10 gift cards to use during Prime Day to those who shop with a small business. I have one just waiting to be used on June 21-22nd.
Do You Have An Amazon Prime Membership?
If you don’t know, Amazon Prime is the membership program from Amazon. It started out free to get you to use do shopping online, but now there is a fee (I think it is $119 or $13 a month). With the membership, you get free Prime shipping on most items (not all) and other perks including Amazon Prime Video service, Prime Music, Prime Wardrobe (7 days free try-on /return before you buy).
You must be an Amazon Prime Member to participate in Prime Day. Good news is that if you are an online shopper, Amazon Prime pretty much pays for itself in shipping fees alone. That is how they got you “hooked” in the first place. Also major retailers and brands sell their products thru their Amazon Stores so you can get their merchandise and use your Prime Delivery. (Neat little trick).
Is Everything On Sale?
No, and not everything will be a great deal. As always when shopping these sales, if you don’t need it, don’t buy it. Also, price check, Amazon used to be the one to beat on prices but now you can easily check online other major retailers to see if they are going to meet or beat Amazon’s price. This time of year is the “dead time” for retailers so sales like this are meant to boost the bottom line. Think of this sale as Amazon’s version of Black Friday.
Best Deals Are Going To Be On Electronics
This year Amazon’s best deals are going to be on electronics and specifically their own Amazon products. One that I totally recommend is the Eero Home Mesh Wifi Networking System. I recently added this to my home and I will be using it at the beach to “cut the cord” on my cable. This wifi networking system allows you to get better wifi coverage over the entire house ( no more dead zones). This is especially important for streaming on your tv’s as everything is going to app’s instead of the cable boxes.

Remember A Few Rules When Shopping Online
These sales tend to get people into a frenzy. Yes, there are some good deals but the rule of thumb for online shopping stand firm- If you don’t need it, don’t buy! Also, check Target & Walmart for their sales too. They are price matching or even going for less and you don’t need a membership to buy from them.
