When is Prime Day 2022? 

Per Amazon's press release, Prime Day is July 12 and 13 this year.

What is Prime Day? 

Since its establishment, Prime Day has become a roaring success for Amazon, its retailers, and its customers. It's one of the biggest sale events of the year filled with huge discounts across all of Amazon's categories.

Most of the deals will be available during the entire two-day event, although there will be some Lightning Deals available for only a couple of hours. You must be a Prime member to take advantage of the deals, but if you’re not currently a member, you can sign up for a 30-day free trial to get access.

“Amazon has a policy that brands must discount their Prime Day deals by at least 20 percent from their lowest price in the last 90 days,” says Ian Sells, CEO of Rebate Key, a program that offers coupons and cash back for online purchases. So, you really are getting a great deal. “Really any category can see huge discounts,” Sells says. “If you have time, look through all the deals that go live every hour and see if you can find some gems.”

What Other Brands Offer Prime Day Deals? 

Prime Day started as an Amazon-only event, but other retailers have gotten in on the action as well. In 2020, Target ran “Target Day Deals” on October 13 to 14, the same dates as Prime Day that year. WalmartHome DepotKohl’sBed Bath & Beyond, and Nordstrom also offered big deals to compete with Prime Day. This year, expect that most major online retailers will do the same, and plan to check all of your favorite sites for sales.

What Categories Are Best to Shop? 

You’ll score the best deals on practically everything. From electronics and appliances to kitchen essentials, there are a ton of products to shop at a fraction of the cost. Last year, high-ticket items like Apple AirPods, the Amazon Echo, and the Instant Pot were Prime Day bestsellers, and it’s likely that the same will be true this year. Our readers particularly loved cookware sets, espresso machines, blenders, and vacuum sealers.

Vincent Sciano, a senior PR manager at Semrush, says that in 2020, Prime Day caused a 4.4 percent increase in Amazon’s monthly traffic. And according to Amazon, sales were up 60 percent on Prime Day in 2020, which actually lasted two days, compared to 2019. 

What Item Sold Best in 2021?

During 2021's Prime Day sale, the Cuisinart Stainless Steel 12-Piece Cookware Set was the number one top seller. The Vitamix 5200 Blender and the iRobot Roomba 692 Robot Vacuum came in second and third place respectively.
