It's Day 2 of Amazon's October Prime Day, and we've hit the late afternoon hours. Translation: Now is the time to get shopping, as the sale will end at sunset tonight (12am PT, 3am ET), and we won't see deals this good again until Black Friday and Cyber Monday. That's right — you only have a few more hours to save! Didn't realize that there was a second Amazon Prime Day in October this year? No worries, some of the best deals are still in stock, and we have them all here. But the savings is not exclusive to Amazon. As per usual, Prime Day inspires all the major retailers and brands — we're talking Walmart, Target, Home Depot, Bed Bath & Beyond and Wayfair to name just a few — to mount their own sales bonanzas (offering savings you'd typically see only on Black Friday) on top brands like Apple, iRobot, SodaStream, Nintendo and more.

What is Amazon Prime Day, again?

Here's a brief recap, in case you're not familiar with it: Prime Day, which began eight years ago, is Amazon’s biggest shopping event for Prime members. This hugely popular sale features markdowns on thousands of products across a slew of categories — tech, kitchen essentials, vacuums, apparel, beauty must-haves and so much more.

When does October Amazon Prime Day end?

Amazon's second Prime Day event for 2022, called the Prime Early Access Sale, will take place on October 11th and 12th. It begins on Tuesday, October 11th, at 12am PT, and ends on Wednesday, October 12, at 1:59pm PT.

When is Amazon Prime Day?

Amazon's second Prime Day event for 2022, called the Prime Early Access Sale, will take place on October 11th and 12th. Prime Day traditionally takes place in July, and the first Prime Day 2022 event was held on July 12th and 13th.

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.

Is Prime Day just at Amazon?

Technically, Prime Day is just an Amazon thing. However, Walmart, Target and other big retailers tend to run big sales at the same time to try to get in on some of the buying action.

Is this fall's October Prime Day for Amazon Prime members only?

Yup. But if you’re not an Amazon 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 one-week trial for $2 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.

Can I get the deals with a free trial Prime 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 $2 trial Prime membership.

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.

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.
