Amazon Prime Day 2022 is just around the corner and we’ve rounded up everything you need to know about the e-tailer’s biggest shopping day of the year.
When Is Amazon Prime Day 2022?
Amazon has announced that Prime Day 2022 will take place on July 12 and 13. Aside from a slight scheduling change (due to Covid) in 2020, Amazon Prime Day dates have always been in the middle of summer, and this year’s Prime Day date is no different.
Similar to previous years, Amazon Prime Day is taking place over two days once again this year, giving shoppers 48 hours to score a deal and discount online. You can bookmark this page and also check amazon.com/primeday for the latest details about the official 2022 Prime Day deals.
Do You Need to be an Amazon Prime Member to Shop the Deals?
The short answer is yes. While Amazon has a Daily Deals page that offers discounts and sales to anyone shopping on the site, the best Prime Day deals are reserved exclusively for Amazon Prime members. There are a ton of other benefits to an Amazon Prime membership, which we’ve rounded up here.
If you’re not an Amazon Prime member, you can get a 30-day free trial right now which will get you access in time for Prime Day.
What Are the Best Prime Day Deals?
In previous years, Prime members have been able shop more than two million deals, including discounts on top name brands like Levi’s, Samsung, iRobot and more.
Amazon also typically discounts its family of Alexa-enabled devices and smart home accessories during Prime Day. Last year’s best-sellers included the Echo Dot and the Fire TV Stick 4K, both of which were marked down in price (they’re both on sale right now too).
Amazon also had discounts last year of up to 50% off from top brands including Samsung, Sony, Ring, iRobot, Keurig and more.
Prime Day fashion deals also make up a large part of Amazon’s sales. The biggest discounts come from its in-house Amazon Essentials and Goodthreads brands, though last year also saw discounts up to 40% off from brands like Nike, adidas, Calvin Klein, Splendid and Alo Yoga.
