Amazon Prime Day 2022 Is July 12 & 13 — Here’s What to Know, Plus Deals to Shop Now
The biggest day in online shopping is almost upon us: Prime Day. Yes, we can all finally stop Googling “When is Prime Day?” because we’ve received word that the highly anticipated event is just around the corner. Amazon Prime Day 2022 is officially kicking off at 3am ET on July 12 and runs through July 13, which means you’ve got plenty of time to get your wishlists ready. Whether you’re looking for gifts for your favorite home chef or kitchen finds to upgrade your own space, we guarantee that this is one epic sale you won’t want to miss, with Black Friday-level prices on popular products from big brands.
Do I Need to Be an Amazon Prime Member to Participate?
Yes, you do need to be an Amazon Prime member to score big on Prime Day. If you haven’t signed up yet and aren’t totally sure if you want to, no worries! You can sign up for a 30-day trial and decide whether or not you want to commit once the sale is over — and you may just find it to be more than worth it. With a Prime membership, you get a ton of benefits, like free two-day delivery on millions of items, exclusive discounts all year long, savings at Whole Foods, and access to Amazon Original TV shows, stand-up specials, documentaries, and movies. Once the 30-day trial period is over, membership costs $14.99/month, with discounts if you’re a student, a customer with an EBT or Medicaid card, or someone who opts in for a year-long subscription.
The Best Deals to Shop on Prime Day 2022
Although we don’t know exactly what will be on sale on Prime Day 2022, we’re confident we’ll see some amazing home and kitchen finds. Last year, we saw huge discounts on small appliances like air fryers, Vitamix blenders, toasters, and toaster ovens, as well as a range of Dyson vacuums to keep your floors clean. We even saw Le Creuset knock $70 off their cast-iron skillet grill! You’ll also likely find the best savings of the year on hot ticket Amazon devices, including Echo and Alexa, Kindles, Fire Tablets, and Fire TVs and Sticks. While early members-only deals begin on June 21, you don’t have to wait that long because we’ve found incredible discounts on tons of editor- and reader-favorites, such as an under-$20 nonstick fry pan and the popular magnetic measuring spoons.
