When is Amazon Prime Day 2022?

Amazon has announced that Prime Day 2022 will take place on July 12 and 13. It’s a two-day shopping event this year, meaning that you’ll have multiple chances to pick up that perfect deal.

Do I need Prime for Prime Day?

Yes. You will need Amazon Prime to take full advantage of the Prime Day 2022 deals. Amazon Prime offers things like free two-day shipping, access to Prime Video, and more. It’s worth it for those who regularly shop on Amazon, for the shipping alone. Amazon has discounts for some people too — like students.

Is Prime Day worth it?

Yes. If you’re in the market for a new device or product, then Prime Day is absolutely worth taking advantage of.

Prime Day is once or twice a year?

When Prime Day first started, it was a one day event. At some point in the last couple years, Amazon decided the shopping extravaganza was too big for only one day of deals. Prime Day should be a two-day shopping event this year.

What is Prime Day?

Straight from the source, here’s what Amazon says about its once-a-year shopping event.

Prime Day is an annual deals event just for Prime members, with more than one million deals worldwide. You’ll find our best deals on products you want, and special offers across everything from music and video to reading and Alexa-enabled devices.
