Keep reading for all you need to know about Prime Day 2022 before the big sale arrives. 

What is Amazon Prime Day? 

Amazon Prime Day is the retailer's annual two-day shopping event that promises the lowest prices of the year on nearly everything you can think of. It occurs only once a year, and typically starts at 12:01 a.m. PT on Prime Day day one and runs through the end of day two. While the coronavirus pandemic has disrupted Amazon Prime Day dates in 2020 and 2021, this year the retailer has returned to its usual Prime Day month of July to host the massive sale event. 

When is Prime Day this year?

Amazon Prime Day 2022 will be Tuesday, July 12 and Wednesday, July 13. We expect deals to go live throughout the two days, with certain retailers launching early deals weeks prior to the actual event. You can even find early deals already live in Amazon's Goldbox deals section

Is Prime Day only for Prime members?

No. Many Prime Day deals will be accessible for non-Prime shoppers, but Prime members can expect to find plenty of ultra-low prices and deals exclusively for them, as well as get free two-day shipping on their purchases (plus a host of other benefits such as a Prime Video subscription and discounts at Whole Foods Market). Amazon also offers a 30-day trial for its Prime membership, which you can sign up for here.

What's on sale on Prime Day? 

You can expect nearly every category on Amazon to launch major discounts, and in prior years the retailer has offered huge markdowns on home appliances, kitchen gadgets, clothing and shoes, beauty products, furniture and home decor, plus electronics. If you're looking for items you'll need this summer, you can expect to snag air purifiers, fans, jeans and dresses, and more seasonal and year-round essentials for way less than usual.
