What is Amazon Prime Day?

Amazon's Prime Day has become the biggest shopping event of the year, with savings available only to members of Amazon's Prime service. It started 8 years ago and has been a hugely popular sale with markdowns on thousands of products across several categories.

When is Amazon Prime Day?

Amazon Prime Day traditionally takes place in July, and the first event was held on July 12th and 13th.

Although Amazon's second Prime Day event has been rumored, it has been officially confirmed and is called the Prime Early Access Sale. It will take place on October 11th and 12th 2022.

Does Prime Day have sales on everything?

Not everything is on sale for Prime Day, but a lot of products are. You'll usually find huge discounts on top-rated brands and items that you know and love.

What are the deals not to miss?

It is too early to tell what products will be put on sale.

But if history repeats itself, some of the best deals will be on Amazon Devices, like the Fire TV Stick 4K and the Fire TV.

Amazon Alexa's will likely be on a huge discount for Prime Day!

Is this year's Prime Early Access available to only Amazon Prime members?

Yes, the Early Access Sale will only be available to Prime Members. But if you’re not a Prime member, don't worry. You can still sign up for Amazon 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.

How do I find the best deals?

You can save a lot of money by getting familiar with popular sales pages, like these one:

  • Deals of the Day: These sales last for a full 24 hours.
  • Lightning Deals: These deals last for only a few hours and are available to Prime members 30 minutes before they go live.
  • Savings and Sales: Here there are ongoing deals throughout the event on select brands and products.
  • Amazon Coupons: Find instant savings in this section.

We also recommend setting up a Wish List on Amazon, where you can identify your must-have items before Prime Day. Then once the sales go live, you will be able to add them to your cart stress-free!

If you haven't downloaded the Amazon app already, it's a good idea to do so, as it allows you to see deals that interest you and be notified when they start.
