Amazon has just released the dates for Prime Day 2022. It’s going to be the biggest sales event so far this year. Here’s everything you need to know to start saving.
When is Amazon Prime Day 2022?
Amazon Prime Day will be on July 12 and 13 this year. The massive online retailer released the dates of its biggest annual sale this morning. Amazon is notoriously secretive about Prime Day’s dates. In April of this year, Amazon announced that Prime Day would be in July, but it kept the final date under wraps. Unlike big holiday sales like Black Friday and Memorial Day, Prime Day’s date changes every year. Amazon always holds its release dates back until a few weeks before the event. Bringing Prime Day back into July is a return to tradition for Amazon. It’s historically been held in July since its creation in 2015. In 2020 it was pushed back to October due to the pandemic, and in 2021 it was pulled back to June 21 and 22.
What to expect for Prime Day 2022
Tens of thousands of products go on sale during Prime Day. You can expect tons of Prime Day deals on everything from popular tech to little knickknacks. Based on previous Prime Days, we can expect to see Amazon products get hefty discounts. Alexa smart devices like the Echo Show will likely drop to next to nothing. Amazon Fire TVs and TV sticks will drop too. In fact, the Fire Stick 4K was the most popular item overall last year, according to Amazon.
But it’s not just official Amazon products getting discounts. Amazon said that Roomba robot vacuums and Keurig coffee makers were among some of the most popular products during last year’s sale. Even big-ticket items will get nice price cuts, like Prime Day MacBook deals and Prime Day AirPods deals.
Prime Day is the perfect time to upgrade your household tech essentials. They’ll be great Prime Day 4K TV deals on brands like Samsung, LG, and Vizio. Students, professionals, and enthusiasts have a great opportunity to upgrade their computers with Prime Day laptop deals and Prime Day gaming laptop deals.
You don’t need to wait until July 12 and July 13 to start shopping, though: Early deals will start June 21, with huge savings on Amazon devices.
