Best Early Amazon Prime Day Deals of 2022
When is Amazon Prime Day 2022?
Amazon Prime Day is a 48 hour sale. At the moment we don’t have exact dates, but it was held last year at the end of June. This year it will be in July, but the exact dates are still unknown.
Selling to this Amazon Prime subscribers is one of the benefits of a Prime membership.
Some deals, like last year’s Audible and Music Unlimited early promotions, offer really solid savings that aren’t likely to improve on Prime Day itself.
However, most sales during Amazon Prime Day itself are generally better than early discounts. If you can’t wait or don’t think you’ll be able to snag Lightning deals that don’t last long while on sale, it may be worth shopping early.
What deals can we expect during Amazon Prime Day 2022?
Amazon Prime Day deals usually match or come close to the Black Friday and Cyber Monday discounts. For Amazon brands like Echo, Ring, Eero, Kindle and Fire, it would be the best time of the year to shop, with many products hitting all-time lows.
We also expect to see brands like Apple, Instant Pot, Shark, JBL, Eufy, and iRobot offer solid deals during the event as well, across many retailers. In fact, many of the retailers mentioned above already have sales.
Be prepared to act quickly, though: The best deals will generally be short-lived and limited in stock.
What should I buy during Amazon Prime Day 2022?
Amazon Prime Day has historically been one of the best times outside of Black Friday and Cyber Monday to shop for tech and home goods. Expect to see deals on Alexa smart speakers, Kindle e-readers, video doorbells, instant pots, vacuum cleaners, Bluetooth speakers and laptops.
What stores offer Amazon Prime Day discounts?
Although Prime Day is Amazon’s bargain event, other retailers often offer discounts and price matches as well. Walmart, Target, Best Buy, and Kohl’s are a few stores that hold sales during Prime Day, and we expect other stores to get discounts as well.
It may be best to shop these alternative options if you don’t have an Amazon Prime account, although first-timers can get the first 30 days for free. Be sure to wait until Prime Day approaches to sign up if you plan to cancel.
