    Amazon Prime Day WFH Deals: Here's What To Expect

    From lumbar-friendly swivel chairs and WiFi extenders to lap desks and footrests, Prime members can expect lots of savings when it comes to home office products.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    It's that time of year again! Prime Day will take place on June 21–22. Yes, the two-day annual event when you get to go all out on Amazon without having to worry about hiding packages from your significant other or your invasive parents is upon us once more.

    The key difference between these two days and the other 363 is the amazing deals offered. You can find great deals on beauty, hair care, electronics, clothing, cleaning products — really anything that you've been eyeing or needing. It's such a fantastic time, and we're going to tell you how to prepare for Prime Day this year.

    The Most Important Thing: In order for you to be able to indulge in Prime Day you MUST have an Amazon Prime membership.

    Your Amazon Prime membership can be billed monthly for $12.99 or annually for $119. For college students, the monthly plan is $6.49, and the annual plan is $59. Signing up for an Amazon prime account also gives you access to Amazon Music, Prime Video, and free two-day shipping anytime. If you're not sure that having a Prime membership is for you, there's a 30-day trial that you can sign up for before Prime Day. 

    But access to deals isn't the only thing that Prime Membership will get you!

    Prime members get to find out what's on sale an entire day before the sale begins!

    Plus you'll get a chance to jump on the Lightning Deals on the first day of the event. For those who don't know, Lightning Deals are promotions in which a limited number of discounts get offered on an item during a *lightning* short time. Amazon advises that if you are interested in Lightning Deals, you try to check out as quickly as possible as these deals are prone to sell out fast! 

    Although we don't know what'll be on sale this year (yet), but based on what was on sale last year, we can venture a pretty good guess!

    Last Prime Day, there were plenty of products on sale that would help you continue to thrive in your WFH environment — and seeing as though the "home office" may be with us longer than we thought, here are some products that we think will be on sale on Prime Day.

    1. A lap desk so that you can take all of your work calls from the comfort of your bed — or anywhere for that matter.

    Promising review: "The little ergonomic wrist pad helps out more than I thought it would! My favorite feature is the little pocket on the backside where I keep my multiple colors of pens for easy access. A solid pad versus just a strip at the top and bottom provides better support and doesn't require your legs to be a certain way for the table to be straight. I have a 17-inch laptop, so I cannot use the pen/cell phone rest, but that didn't stop me from giving 5 stars." —Rainbow Bright's Closet

    Price: $29.77 (originally $35.99).

    2. A multi-pack of 16 cable clip organizers of various sizes, because you probably have a lot of cords that continue to get tangled day after day.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Effective little holders, and you get a lot for your money. Husband used the multiple-slot mounts to organize a jumble of thin wires on his electronics bench. My favorites are the single mount round ones to hang toothbrushes on the inside of the medicine cabinet." —Mountain Mama

    Price: $8.98 (originally $17.99).

    3. A laptop stand so that your posture is great — be sure to assure your mother that you care about your posture first — and it also frees up some of your desk space.

    Promising review: "I have a workstation at my home office and I like to work with multiple screens through docking stations. Sometimes the most brilliantly engineered products are the simplest. This is certainly the case here. Though on the surface it looks like a very simple product, you can tell that a lot of thought went into its design. From an aesthetic standpoint, it is gorgeous simplicity is the perfect complement to a Mac laptop or high-end aluminum PC. It even looks great sitting on the desk by itself. The size is good. It lifts the screen to a good readable height, so no more hunching over the laptop. From a functional standpoint, this laptop stand elevates your computer to the perfect height, has an open bottom for maximum heat dispersion, is solidly constructed, and easily disassembled for transport if you need." —Mountain Digger

    Price: $20.39 (originally $32.99).

    4. An anti-fatigue mat designed to help make standing and working not as uncomfortable as it could be. It features calculated terrain to keep your feet moving subconsciously throughout the day to avoid soreness.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I've been standing on hardwood floors in front of my computer at my standing desk for over a year now since the pandemic started. The standing desk helped the neck, but my feet were hurting! I've been using this mat for a week now and my feet are much happier. I really like the topography which gives my knees and hips different stances. Plus the slight cushioning helps the plantar faciitis pain I've been suffering from standing all day. I definitely recommend." —Bobbysox

    Price: $99 (originally $199).

    5. An ergonomic mesh office chair to give you a more breathable, comfortable WFH experience.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "What can I say? These chairs are great. Being forced to work from home to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, my fiancée and I scrambled to find solutions that would quickly help us set up a home office so we could work more efficiently and not sit on chairs that would kill our backs. These fit the bill! Super easy to assemble, arrived quickly, and more comfortable than my chair at work. I find it hard to complain about any aspect of them. Are the arms kind of cheap-looking? Sure. But they are supportive and comfortable. For this price, don't hesitate, just buy one!" —JE

    Price: $33.49+ (originally $86.99, available in four colors).

    6. An under-the-desk foot rest so your feet can stop distracting you from what's more important — your work tasks. It's also reversible, so if you prefer a rounded footrest, you're in luck, and also, if you prefer a flatter rest, you're, well, also in luck.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I ordered this footrest to assist with a more comfortable and ergonomic work-from-home experience. My legs are a bit on the short side and even when I lower my chair, I find it more comfortable to have my feet resting slightly elevated. This footrest does the job perfectly. I use it with both the flat sides up (for the more idle sitting during zoom calls) as I can rock my feet to keep myself from dozing off, and the round side up when I want to keep my feet still. The footrest memory foam makes for a nice/soft experience either way while still providing that lift." —Hekin

    Price: $29.99 (originally $31.95).

    7. A faux-leather dotted journal to keep your head and dreams organized in a separate space.

    Promising review: "I’m so excited to use this new journal! The dots are helpful to keep everything the same size and I used a variety of pens, none bled through at all! The binding is sturdy and this is overall just a great purchase." —Amazon Customer

    Price: $6.99+ (originally $8.99, available in six colors).

    8. A 6-in-1 MacBook adapter, because chances are that you have accessories and memory cards that are essential to you completing your work, and like, Apple doesn't have room for those.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I just bought this product two days ago and was honestly surprised by the size. It’s very small, which is great, because I didn’t want anything big and bulky. It has a lot of different ports which is absolutely amazing. I would recommend this product to anyone looking for these kind of ports especially since it’s very lightweight and slim." —Onyinye Okeke

    Price: $16.99 (originally $22.99).

    9. A pair of blue-light-blocking glasses that'll help reduce eye strain and avoid those pesky headaches from staring at your computer, phone, and TV screens for nine hours straight.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Don't forget to clip the coupon before checking out!

    Promising review: "Love these!! My roommate had some blue-light glasses that I had tried and as much as they worked, they got smudged very easily and almost had a sort of film over them. These ones do not easily smudge and when they do I find it comes off pretty easily. I also have a very small head/face and these fit perfectly and don’t look too big on me! I’ve noticed my headaches have lessened a lot since I started wearing them during screen time, so happy with the purchase!" —Jenn Wagstaffe

    Price: $11.89+ (originally $13.99; available in seven colors and as a multi-pack).

    10. A double-sided, portable, dry-erase, mini-whiteboard for making sure that your work and home to-do lists are separate but always organized.

    Promising review: "I use this whiteboard at work to let people know when I'm out of the office on vacation and when I will return. I purchased it because of the easel and the size. It is the perfect size for my desk and it cleans easily. The easel could be slightly more sturdy, sometimes it can fall back, but I tend to keep it between my keyboard and docking station which ensures it will remain standing. After bringing this whiteboard to work, other coworkers got their own whiteboards to use. It is better than wasting paper and I'm really glad I purchased it!" —A. Gold

    Price: $9.99+ (originally $24.99).

    11. A Smart Wi-Fi Router that comes with three external antennas to help it go the distance and bring a strong Wi-Fi signal throughout your home.

    FYI: It works with Alexa, VPN Server, Parental Control, and QoS.

    Promising review: "So happy with my purchase. I had my old router for like seven years and it kept losing signal and needing to be restarted. This router's signal is ALWAY strong and reliable. We run multiple devices on our WI-Fi and it never loses a signal and rarely has a low output." —Crystal

    Price: $57.99 (originally $79.99).

    So, what are you waiting for? Get your Amazon wish lists organized and may the sales be in your favor!
