Amazon Prime Day 2022 Is Almost Here—& We Have Every Detail You Need to Know
When it comes to getting a good deal, Amazon delivers all year round. But that doesn’t mean we’re not excited to score some mega discounts during this year’s Amazon Prime Day—a major bonus for Prime members. (Not you? Sign up for a free trial here.) Next month, the retail giant is slashing prices on everything from electronics and kitchen gadgets to mattresses and nursery items, for 48 hours only.
What is Amazon Prime Day?
Amazon Prime Day is pretty much like Christmas, but it lasts for two days instead of one. It’s an unofficial holiday that was created to celebrate the company’s birthday, and it’s exclusive to Amazon Prime members. It typically includes rarely discounted categories, like electronics, air fryers and vacuums. In addition to daily reductions, the retailer also features lightning deals (which only last for a certain amount of time). Seriously, if you aren’t already signed up, you should do so ASAP. New Prime customers get a free 30-day trial, so there’s nothing to lose.
When Is Amazon Prime Day 2022?
Historically, Amazon Prime Day lasts a complete 48 hours and things are no different this year. The sale starts on July 12 at 12 a.m. PT and ends on July 13 at 11:59 p.m. PT.
What Deals Can I Expect on Prime Day?
Unfortunately, Amazon hasn’t shared any Prime Day deals (at least not yet). But here are just a few of the sales we saw last year:
- Up to 20 percent off swimwear
- Up to 20 percent off AirPods
- Up to 30 percent off TVs
- Up to 35 percent off smart home gadgets
Do You Need a Prime Membership to Shop Amazon Prime Day Deals?
Yes, but if you aren’t already a Prime member, you can sign up for a free 30-day trial. Once it’s over, you’ll be charged $15 per month (plus tax), or you can choose to do an annual payment of $139. (FYI, students get a discounted rate of $7.50 per month.) Not only do members get free two-day shipping, but they also get access to Prime Video and Prime Try Before You Buy, among other perks.
