Last year, Amazon Prime Day came early. Online shoppers had a chance to take advantage of some of the year’s deepest discounts in June instead of the traditional July. It was early summer, and COVID-19 cases had been declining since April. Consumers were feeling more positive about the pandemic, and this seemed to be reflected in the items they purchased.

According to an in-depth market analysis following the two-day mega-sales event, health and beauty products performed as well as the ever-popular consumer electronics category. The apparel and shoes category came in a close second and was tied with household essentials. This reflected America’s desire to stop wearing sweatpants 24/7 and focus on appearance because the world was opening up again.

As life continues to shift back to the way it was, last year’s most popular categories are predicted to be home to some of the deepest discounts again this year. To help you find the best deals on the items you want most, we’ve listed products from those categories: health and beauty, consumer electronics, apparel and shoes, household essentials and home and garden.
