If you're counting down the days to Amazon's annual Prime Day – or in this case, Prime Days – we've got you covered. Prime Day this year starts next Monday, June 21 and runs through Tuesday, June 22.

In years past, we've seen some great deals on Prime Day for travel gear, electronics, as well as everyday items you can save on. We're expecting more of those massive sales this time around – plus there are some money-saving tricks you can use to take Prime Day savings to the next level.

Here's how we recommend getting ready to bargain hunt – or even start your shopping a little early.


Try Amazon Prime for Free

It should be no surprise that Prime Day specials are only available to Amazon Prime members. If you haven't pulled the trigger on an Amazon Prime account just yet, here's your chance to try it out for free.

Amazon is currently offering a free 30-day Prime test run to new members. Just sign up and you'll be eligible for all those Prime Day specials.

Prime normally costs $12.99 a month or $119 a year, which can easily be worth it based on your shopping habits. In addition to Prime Day access, you'll get free one- or two-day shipping on almost any order, Prime Video streaming service, special deals at Whole Foods, and much more.
