17. Kayme 6 Layers Car Cover Waterproof

Get that car covered with this. Keep it out of the rain, and keep insects/tree leaves/bird droppings off it, as well. It's waterproof, so your precious metal will be well-protected.

These jumper cables could come in handy if you find yourself with a dead battery, so be prepared.

And do so at a deal -- move quick while Prime Day pricing is in effect.

22. Car Battery 12V Load Tester from TOPDON

If you want to avoid using the jumper cables listed above, one good way to do that is by using a car-battery tester to keep tabs on it.

With 16 percent off, this is the kind of Prime Day deal that won't test your patience.

When is Amazon Prime Day 2022?

Amazon Prime Day 2022 will start on Tuesday, July 12 and will run for 48 hours. Prime Day 2022 will give you the chance to shop from the comfort of home.

What Goes on Sale During Amazon Prime Day?

icon

Every year, good deals are available exclusively to Amazon Prime members. In other words, a lot of products go on sale during Amazon Prime Day. Based on previous years, there are plenty of automotive items that will likely go on sale for Amazon Prime Day 2021. Expect handy accessories such as portable jump starters, power inverters, tire pressure gauges, and car seat organizers to see big discounts. Car detailing enthusiasts will want to stock up on their favorite car cleaning supplies during Prime Day, especially items such as microfiber towels or even an orbital buffer.

This year, expect to see plenty of automotive goods to go on sale. If you’ve been keeping an eye on certain tools or even aftermarket accessories, you might want to add them to your Amazon Wish List so you can easily see if there are deals once Prime Day goes live. TTAC's sibling site, AutoGuide.com, will also be showcasing some of the best automotive Prime Day deals, so keep an eye out on the site for updates on both sites as we get closer to the sale day.

What are the Benefits of Amazon Prime?

icon

Not an Amazon Prime member? The good news is, Amazon offers a 30-day free trial for Prime, which means you can actually sign up and take advantage of Prime Day 2021 when it happens without forking over any extra cash. Now you may think that an Amazon Prime membership only means fast shipping, but there’s so much more. Two-day shipping is standard for all Prime members, while select cities also offer same-day delivery and one-day shipping.

In addition to getting your orders quickly, Prime members also get to take advantage of exclusive deals (30-minute early access to Lightning Deals) on Amazon, exclusive deals at Whole Foods Market, access to award-winning movies and TV shows through Amazon Prime Video, free games and loot with Twitch, and access to over two-million songs on Amazon Music without any ads.

Amazon Prime costs $14.99 a month, or $139 a year. You can also sign up for just Amazon Prime Video for $8.99 a month.

Students can save even more on Amazon Prime, with Prime Student costing $7.49 a month or $69 a year.

How do I Sign up for Amazon Prime?

icon

Signing up for an Amazon Prime membership is really easy. You can simply click here to start your 30-day free trial to Amazon Prime. If you’re a student, make sure you click the student link to take advantage of a 6-month trial courtesy of Sprint. You will have to hand over your credit card information to sign up to Amazon Prime, even to access the 30-day trial. You can always cancel at anytime.

Is Amazon Prime Day Better than Black Friday or Cyber Monday?

icon

It can be. Whether you find Amazon Prime Day better than Black Friday or Cyber Monday largely depends on the types of products you’re shopping for. Automotive products aren’t at the top of every retailer’s sales list for Black Friday or Cyber Monday deals—they’re not the greatest gifts after all—so Prime Day edges out the other shopping holidays in that respect. Because Amazon covers such a wide range of products, you’ll likely find some great deals on automotive goods during Prime Day that you may not come across on Black Friday or Cyber Monday.

Besides, with Prime Day taking place in July, you’ll have plenty of time to save up again for Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

From time to time, TTAC will highlight automotive products we think may be of interest to our community. Plus, posts like this help to keep the lights on around here. Learn more about how this works.

(Editor’s note: This post is meant to both help you be an informed shopper for automotive products but also to pay for our ‘90s sedan shopping habits operating expenses. Some of you don’t find these posts fun, but they help pay for Junkyard Finds, Rare Rides, Piston Slaps, and whatever else. Thanks for reading.)

    Need to check your links. The plate frame one is broken. No referral bonus for the one I’m buying now.

  • Sgeffe Sgeffe on Jul 12, 2022

    The cited car trim kit is already sold out. Not to worry, the other similar-looking kits shown in the Scamazon app are probably produced in the same sweatshop! In other news, I had no idea that an Autel ANYTHING could be had so cheaply—even the non-Prime price on the one shown here is $50 less than I would have guessed, and it’s probably somewhat more likely to work for a while versus the generic cr-p one might find on the shelf at AutoZone.
