Happy Almost Prime Day everyone! It’s that one day a year where Amazon puts out massive deals for all their Prime Members and this year is going to be bigger than ever! The event is going to last a full 48-hours starting at midnight PST/3 a.m. EST on Monday, July 15, 2019.
Now, specific sales won’t be revealed until the day of, but you can get prepared by signing up for a free 30-day Prime Trial if you aren’t already a member so that you can take advantage of all the great sales. After the 30 day period, Amazon Prime costs $119 per year, but in addition to qualifying for Prime Day deals, your membership also gets you free two-day shipping year-round, plus ongoing access to Prime Video and Prime Music.
Specific deals won’t be released until the day off, but we can get an idea of what might go on sale this year based on what was marked down last year during Amazon Prime Day! Here are some of my favorite products that were on sale last year and that you should snag this time around!
Best Products for Travelers
Kindle Paperwhite E-Reader
Amazon typically puts all of its own devices on sale on Prime Day, so if you’re in the market for a new e-reader, save this page now. This is perfect for travelling bookworms who love to read on their adventures.
Bose makes some of the best noise-canceling headphones and these went on sale last year. Now, they aren’t wireless, but you can plug them in to watch the in-flight entertainment on airplanes with standard audio jacks and they are so comfortable(my dad has some that I borrow when I forget my Beats). These are absolutely clutch on overnight flights.
Lifestraw Personal Water Filter
This water filter is perfect for anyone going on long hikes where it’s impossible to carry enough water. With Lifestraw, any water source can be filtered and drank with ease! I wish I had one on my trip to Olympic National Park!
Blue Lizard Australian Sunscreen
Now that Hawaii and other tropical locales have banned non-reef-safe sunscreens, you’ll want to consider other sun protection, like Blue Lizard. This one normally runs $15 for a small bottle , several of its sunscreen varieties had great deals last year!
Bose Bluetooth Speaker
For music lovers, throwing a portable speaker in your bag is always a smart move, whether you’re on a business trip by yourself or renting a beach house with a group of friends.
Trtl Travel Pillow
Get some quality rest on the road, thanks to this easy-to-pack travel pillow! This pillow will make those overnight flights more bearable and is easily one of my Carry On Essentials since it racked up over 1,400 five-star reviews on Amazon.
Perfect for the Type-A packer, there are always great deals on packing cubes on Prime day! I am personally hoping these compression ones go on sale this year so I can finally snag a set!
Herschel Supply Company Backpack
An ideal bag for day trips and sightseeing, I have wanted one of these bags forever. Last year it went on sale for nearly half off so I’m hoping to see a similar steal this
Timbuk2 Copilot Roller Suitcase
This amazing roller bag is perfect for all travelers. Be sure to grab it now while its under $100!
Samsonite Aspire xLite Expandable Softside Luggage Set
