When is Amazon Prime Day 2022?

Get ready to click “Add to cart,” because one of the most highly anticipated annual online shopping events is back. Mark your calendar, Amazon Prime Day 2022 kicks off at 3 a.m. ET on Tuesday, July 12 and runs through July 13. You can take advantage of incredible savings from brands like Casper, De’Longhi, ELEMIS, iRobot, Levi’s, SharkNinja, SodaStream, Sony, and more.

Prime Day is packed with some of the coolest things to buy online—everything from those coveted Amazon hidden gems to weird items on Amazon to things you can buy on Amazon for under $1 will be part of the sale. But the savings are exclusively for Prime members, so if there were ever a time to investigate the benefits of Amazon Prime, it’s now. Prime Day is such an event that it has even garnered competition, with rival sales like Walmart Prime Day happening around the same time.

Amazon Prime Day deals continue to be announced on everything from eggs (yes, really) to electronics. So if you still don’t own an air fryer, this could be your chance to grab one, and at a great value. There is something for everyone on your list, like Amazon Prime gifts and relaxing sleep products on Amazon. Don’t miss the deals on smartwatches, mixing bowls, printer paper, hair dryers, comfy tank tops, yoga mats, bedding, pet toys, and lawn chairs. And with special offers on the Ring Doorbell, you can watch the boxes arrive at your doorstep.

The best part? You don’t even have to wait until Amazon Prime Day 2022 officially begins to start scoring deals and prizes. See below for the special promos surrounding this year’s sale.
