The two-day global shopping event will bring thousands of deals and offers. The e-retailer has also teased that will the launch of over 1000 products during the Prime Day sale period. 

With less than a week to go, it's a good time to start preparing for Amazon's Prime Day 2019 sale event. The sale presents a good chance to save some money but also enhances the risk of overshooting your budget by spending all your money on impulse purchases. But if you're well prepared and set clear goals, you need not worry.

Get Amazon Prime membership, if you don't have it already
First things first, you'll need to be an Amazon Prime member to enjoy all those exciting deals and offers on Prime Day 2019. In India, Amazon's Prime membership is relatively more affordable and offers a number of benefits. From free unlimited one-day and two-day shipping to free access to Prime Video and Prime Music, you get it all.

Prime membership costs Rs. 999 for a full year subscription and Rs. 129 for a monthly subscription. But in case you're looking for a way to crash the Prime Day 2019 party, you can get Prime subscription for free via your mobile service provider. Airtel, Vodafone, BSNL, and Idea offer complimentary subscription to Amazon Prime with select plans.

Make plans before Prime Day 2019 sale kicks off
Just like last year, Prime Day 2019 sale will include thousands of deals. It's very easy to get carried away and buy a bunch of things you don't really need. Plan what you need and assign a budget to your shopping list. Doing this will keep you focussed, and hopefully, prevent you from browsing Lightning Deals at 3 o'clock in the morning.

Create a specific wishlist on Amazon before the Prime Day sale begins. Do your research, and know exactly what you want. Pick a make and model, and add it to your Amazon wishlist. This way you'll also receive a notification in case the product you need goes on sale.
