Hype is building for Amazon Prime Day 2021 which is less than two weeks away now, and while we know there'll be massive savings on offer, mystery still surrounds the exact deals we'll be able to shop.

Last year, Aussies saved millions on both everyday and big ticket items over the two-day shopping event, while globally, Prime members enjoyed $1.4 billion worth of discounts.

The best indication we have of what will be on sale come June 21 and 22, is what sold well last year, so we've collected the Prime Day best sellers from around the world for 2020 so you can start your wish list.

Of course, the only caveat is that to shop the Prime Day sales, you have to be a Prime member, however they have a 30 day free trial which will include access to Prime Day.
