Amazon Prime Day 2022: Everything we know so far

blank

It’s almost that time again: Amazon Prime Day! Then Amazon celebrates its subscription service with two-day discounts on hundreds of different products in all categories. This way the company can ensure you get the most out of your subscription with exclusive discounts.

On this page you’ll find everything you need to know about Amazon Prime Day, including how to find the best discounts and how to prepare for this mini-vacation of online shopping.

What is Amazon Prime Day?

Every year since 2015, Amazon has reserved two days for exclusive discounts on numerous products in all the departments they cover. But this isn’t just a way for Amazon to set themselves apart from the rest of the retailers, as they want to make sure customers keep coming back to them, even if it’s not Black Friday or the Christmas season when we all shop for gifts us and our loved ones. Amazon isn’t exactly transparent when it comes to detailing the success of its big shopping holiday, but last year they sold over 250 million items worldwide during their 48-hour Prime Day event, so rest assured there’s a lot of them will give offers around.

Amazon tends to offer discounts on many products compared to some of its competitors. But what makes Prime Day special is its exclusivity. The only people who can take advantage of these discounts during those 48 hours are Prime members. It sometimes happens with special, one-off “Blitz” offers throughout the year and also during the Black Friday and Christmas seasons.

But no fear! You can participate in Prime Day even if your Prime membership is a free trial. But if you’re already a heavy Amazon customer and are interested in its video and music streaming services, or subscribe to ad-free streamers on Twitch, the monthly or annual Prime subscription (£7.99/£79 each) can end up being one Bargains for you, especially since these services come bundled with free next-day delivery on many, many products.

When is Amazon Prime Day?

Amazon has confirmed that Prime Day 2022 will take place in July, with no fixed date beyond that. In the first year of the pandemic in 2020, this year’s event was held in October, and last year Amazon mistook it for a June event. We expect the two-day sales event to start in mid-July, either on the 11th or 18th, but there’s no confirmation yet. When a firm date is announced, we will update this section.

Course of Prime Day:

  • 2021: 21.-22. June
  • 2020: 13.-14. October
  • 2019: 15-16 July
  • 2018: 16-17 July
  • 2017: 11.-12. July
  • 2016: July 12
  • 2015: July 15

How to find the best deals on Amazon Prime Day

Our first piece of advice is get Amazon Prime. You can do this via a free trial (and even if you had one before, you might be offered one again if it’s been a while). Or you can double-check your current subscription to make sure it doesn’t end in early June before Prime Day, or just play it safe and subscribe to a monthly or annual subscription. This guarantees that you are always seeing the best prices on the site, as some discounts are only available to Prime members throughout the year.

One thing you can do if you’re already in the market for something is to add it to your list in your Amazon account. In fact, you can make many lists on the site, so you can create one for this year’s upcoming Prime Day. If there has been a discount since you added an item to your list, there will be a small indicator on the product page letting you know the discount that is now being offered.

But if you’re a casual shopper and want to see what all the fuss is about, your best bet is to visit Amazon’s Daily Deals page. These are quite extensive and categorized into different departments and product categories, so you’re sure to find something that you not only want, but probably need. On Amazon Prime Day, under each special offer is a certain amount of stock indicated by the availability percentage. It is therefore highly recommended to get up early and log in to ensure you don’t miss anything if you are late for the game.

A simple trick to try for a planned purchase is to add it to your cart in preparation for Prime Day. This is an effective strategy because when you log back in, the item may still be available but at a new, lower price, allowing you to click the buy button. But stay alert as prices can also go up. So if you’ve found something for a good deal, buy it early to avoid disappointment.

Don’t forget the marketplace sellers, either. They’ll be busy on Prime Day offering one off deals on their products, and these often involve checking a box on the product page to activate a small or substantial discount. But remember, all retailers know the Prime Day event, so check the prices to see if the competition is offering a deal on something you might also want to buy as they don’t want to miss out on this shopping holiday from Amazon.
