When Is Amazon Prime Day?

Prime Day happens once a year, and it's been known to take place around Amazon's birthday, July 15 (although last year, Prime Day 2021 took place in June, and in 2020, Prime Day took place in October). At the end of April, Amazon revealed in a press release that Prime Day would take place in July for more than 20 countries. And earlier this month, the retailer announced that Amazon Prime Day would officially kick off Tuesday, July 12 and go through Wednesday, July 13.

What Is Prime Day?

Amazon Prime Day is an annual two-day shopping event that rewards shoppers, particularly Prime members, with exclusive savings. It's designed to give shoppers Black Friday-level savings across the entire site, with new deals popping up throughout the day. While the dates change every year, shoppers can typically expect the worldwide event to fall in between Amazon's Memorial Day and Black Friday sales. For 2022, Amazon Prime Day is taking place on July 12 and July 13.

How Long Is Prime Day?

Shoppers have 48 hours to shop the sale, and past Prime Days have kicked off at 12 a.m. PST on the first official day and ended at 11:59 p.m. PST on the final day. If you're worried about having such a small timeframe to shop, we have the ultimate pro tip. Two words: early deals. Every year, Amazon is known to treat shoppers to an array of savings in every category ahead of Prime Day's official start date. The early Prime Day deals can start weeks in advance so shoppers have ample opportunities to save on the products they have on their wishlists.

Do You Need a Prime Membership to Shop Amazon Prime Day Deals?

As we've mentioned, the two-day shopping event is catered to Prime members, but it's not exclusive to them. In fact, non-subscribers can also join in on the fun with savings of their own. However, being a Prime member does make you privy to loads of secret markdowns and deals before, during, and after the sale. If you're not looking to add a new subscription to your list, you can sign up for a free 30-day membership trial to gain access to every single Prime Day deal.

It's also incredibly easy and fast to sign up for a membership. Shoppers have two options: First, you can enroll for $14.99/month (or $7.49/month for students), which can be canceled at any time. Aside from access to Prime Day, membership perks also include complimentary 2-day shipping, access to Prime Video, exclusive discounts at Whole Foods, and more than 30 other perks.

What's on Sale on Prime Day?

The retailer has marked down thousands of items across its categories, including home, beauty, fashion, tech, outdoors, pets, and more. Last year, shoppers saved upwards of 50 percent on best-sellers and new arrivals like Travelpro luggage, Apple AirPods, Adidas activewear, iRobot Roomba vacuum cleaners, and Panasonic cameras, as well as smart TVs, Echo home devices, and Amazon Fire Sticks.

What are Some Amazon Prime Day Shopping Tips?

Now that Amazon is here, follow these useful hacks to make your Prime Day shopping as stress-free as possible.

  • Ask Alexa: It's no surprise that Alexa is your best resource for a successful Prime Day. During the sale event, you can use your Echo Dot or Alexa-compatible device to follow the deals and notify you in order to stay up-to-date on price drops and new savings on specific products. Trust us, this will be a game-changer.
  • Get Watch A Deal notifications: Don't have an Alexa? Then, we recommend signing up for Watch A Deal notifications to stay in the loop during Prime Day. The feature is available through the Amazon mobile app and incredibly easy to set up: Just go to your settings, select "Programs and Features," and tap on "Deals." Then, click on "Upcoming" and find the deals you're interested in. All that's left to do is click "Watch This Deal" and you'll be notified when the item goes on sale.
  • Check the Movers & Shakers List: If you want to join in on the Prime Day fun but don't know what to shop for, the Movers & Shakers section is going to be your best friend. It's a constantly changing list that showcases and tracks Amazon's biggest sellers in all of its categories in a 24-hour time period.
