Amazon has confirmed that Prime Day 2022 will be in July in more than 20 countries, returning to its customary month after a two years of pandemic-related shifts. In 2020, Prime Day moved to October, and in 2021, it was in June.
The company shared this initial information on Prime Day 2022 while announcing their first quarter results on Thursday, April 28. "Prime members will be able to save on products from national brands and small businesses across every category," the company said in a statement.
Here's a rundown on what to expect on Prime Day 2022, what makes this year different, and where we expect to see the best deals.
What is Amazon Prime Day?
Prime Day, which began eight years ago, is Amazon’s biggest shopping event for Prime members. The stellar sale includes markdowns on thousands upon thousands of products: tech, kitchen essentials, vacuums, apparel, beauty must-haves and so much more.
When is Amazon Prime Day 2022?
While we don't have specific dates just yet, Amazon has confirmed that Prime Day will be in July 2022 in more than 20 countries. Historically, Prime Day has taken place mid-month, after the July 4th holiday, and in time for back-to-school shopping for states that return to classrooms in late July and early August.
Does Prime Day have sales on everything?
Not everything is on sale for Prime Day, but a lot is. This is usually the day when you'll find huge discounts on top-rated brands and products you know and love.
What do we know so far about Prime Day?
This year, Prime Day is back to heat up our summers, launching in July in more than 20 countries.
With folks wanting to treat themselves after a tough year, this year's Prime Day could be record-setting. In a May 2021 survey from Criteo, four out of five US consumers (81 percent) said Prime Day gets them in the mood to shop.
Other retailers will be riding the Prime Day train as well — Walmart, Best Buy, Target and GameStop all clapped back with their own sales last year.
What are the deals not to miss?
No one knows exactly which products will go on sale. But if history repeats itself, and we suspect it will, some of the best deals will be on Amazon Devices, like the Fire TV Stick 4K, and the Echo Dot.
Yahoo readers' most purchased products last Prime Day? Apple AirPods, Crest Whitestrips, and Sony WH-CH710N Noise Cancelling Headphones. This year should follow suit, offering major markdowns across categories.
Is Prime Day for Prime members only?
Yup. But if you’re not a Prime member, there’s still time to sign up and take advantage of the savings. Prime plans are $14.99 per month (or $139 per year), and you get a free 30-day trial at signup.
Prime member benefits include free two-day shipping and delivery, and same-day or even two-hour shipping for eligible items and locations. It also comes with access to Prime Video, Amazon Music (2 million songs, ad-free!), free two-day delivery on prescriptions from Amazon Pharmacy, free video games via Prime Gaming (formerly Twitch Prime), unlimited full-resolution storage with Amazon Photos and so much more.
You’ll also get exclusive access to deals. Check out all the Amazon Prime 2022 perks here.
Can I get the deals with a free trial membership? If so, How long is the Amazon Prime free trial?
Yes, you can enjoy the perks of Prime Day — and all of the other benefits of being an Amazon Prime member — with the free trial membership. The trial membership is for 30 days.
How do I find the best deals?
There are a few things you can do to score big on your favorite items. The first is to get familiar with the popular pages across the site that typically host the best sales:
Deals of the Day: These sales last for a full 24 hours.
Lightning Deals: These deals last for only a few hours, while supplies last. Prime members get access to these sales 30 minutes before they go live to the public.
Savings and Sales: Ongoing deals throughout the event on select brands and products.
Amazon Coupons: You’ll find instant savings in this section (read all about it here).
We also recommend setting up a ‘Wish List’ at Amazon. That way, you’ve identified your must-have items before Prime Day, and once the sales go live, you can add them to your cart stress-free.
If you haven’t already done so, downloading the Amazon app is a must, as it allows you to watch the deals you’re interested in and get notified when they start.
