Sure, beach trips, cookouts, and s’mores are great—but no summer is complete without scoring a few Prime Day deals. So when is Amazon Prime Day 2022? And exactly how much stuff is going on sale this year? To help you make the most of your time and money, we tracked down everything we know about the shopping event so far—including its exact date, the deals you’ll want to shop, and the competing sales expected to bring the heat. Let’s get into it.
When is Amazon Prime Day 2022?
It’s official: Amazon Prime Day 2022 will take place on July 12 and 13. The retailer just announced the dates, and it’s looking more like Prime Days than Prime Day. It’s a welcome return to form for the sales event, which typically falls in July. (During the first year of the pandemic, it was bumped to October, and it fell in June last year.)
But Amazon isn’t the only retailer getting in on the Prime Day action: Each year at around the same time, a slew of other mega-retailers (often including Walmart, Best Buy, Target, and Nordstrom) hold their own rival sales. It’s basically Black Friday in July, and each summer the competition gets stiffer with earlier deals and better discounts. Thankfully for you, that means low prices just about everywhere you love to shop.
Who can shop Amazon Prime Day?
Fittingly, the best deals are reserved for Amazon Prime members, who get access to lightning deals, free two-day shipping, and extra benefits like Prime Video and Amazon Music. If you don’t have a membership, you might get lucky with a few unofficial Prime Day deals from select sellers, but you’ll be missing out on all the member perks. Need more convincing?

What are the best Amazon Prime Day deals?
We thought you’d never ask! Most sales are still under wraps, but you can already score a few early deals on Amazon devices, like Echo Dot smart speakers, Kindles, and Fire Tablets (along with select wardrobe essentials from the retailer’s in-house brands). History gives us a pretty good indication of what to expect from the rest of the site: Previous years have included deep discounts on premium beauty, trending fashion, tech like smart gadgets and laptops, and all things home. (Oh, and don’t forget the sex toys.) Prepare for thousands of deals on pretty much everything you could ever want, from Apple Macbooks to iPads, Instant Pots to air fryers.
