The much anticipated Amazon Prime Day is scheduled for Monday and Tuesday.
The volume of deals may be overwhelming. Experts advise consumers not to act spontaneously and wait for that offer to make sure you save the money you want. Another tip is to have a plan before you buy and find out in advance what you need.
While Amazon continues to be the mother of certain deals that will be held at the biggest prime event shopping event, there are some deals and deals to avoid, experts advised.
On Prime Day, many "flash offers" were offered by third-party vendors. However, consumers should be wary of third-party sellers who raise the price of an item to take advantage of the purchase event. Kristin Cook, Editor-in-Chief of BensBargains.com, told MarketWatch that consumers should check prices with a tool like The Tracktor, which looks up how much the item is compared to the sale.
Tech products, such as laptops and game consoles
Need a new laptop? Skip it on Prime Day. According to US News World & World Report, the best laptop deals are usually offered when back-to-school sales are ongoing.
In the meantime, experts stopped buying a video game console and waited until Black Friday or Cyber Monday were considered buying. During Christmas, many stores offer a game or gift card with the console, which is an added bonus to the product, said Kristin McGrath, Offers.com's shopping expert, opposite MarketWatch.

Do not buy toys for your child or grandchild on Prime Day. The best toy deals are offered weeks before Christmas, when most are in stock and on sale.
Sure, a bundle deal may look great, but look closer. Do you need everything in this package or just one thing? Are you going to use everything in the bundle? According to wirecutter analysts, a consumer should not only be blinded by a bundle deal, but also take a look at what he buys and whether he will use all the articles. If not, you can reject the bundle.
