Prime Day is quickly approaching, and here is everything you need to know before the deals start.

This year Prime Day runs for a full 48 hours, from midnight Monday until 11:59 p.m. Tuesday. That's the longest prime day(s) in history.

If you plan on shopping there are some things you're going to want to do beforehand:

  • Sign-up for Amazon Prime — if you don't have it already —  since the deals are for Prime Members.
  • Be sure to sign-up for Amazon alerts so you don't miss the deals you want as they drop during the day.
  • Keep in mind Amazon carts refresh every 15 minutes, so if there's something you really want, don't wait too long to buy it.
  • Be sure to research prices beforehand to ensure the best savings.
  • It's not just Amazon that is getting in on the action; Amazon-owned Whole Foods is rolling out its own Prime Day deals. Even competitors such as Walmart and Target are offering huge savings next week to try and compete with Amazon.
