What is Prime Day?

Prime Day is an annual sales event held by Amazon and its retail affiliates like Samsung and Apple that lasts for 48 hours. Prime Day is responsible for some of the most significant discounts on must-have tech. Deals will include Amazon's proprietary tech like the Echo line of automation hubs and Kindle E-readers, and you can expect to see sales of laptops to wearables.

For those who already have an Alexa-enabled device in their homes, you can remain up to date by asking Alexa to "keep me posted on Prime Day."

When is Prime Day 2022?

The next Amazon Prime Day(s) will happen on July 12 and 13, 2022. Sales typically begin at midnight PDT on day one and end at 11:59 PM PDT on day two.

What's on Sale for Prime Day?

We're likely to see deep discounts on many of Amazon's first-party products like Kindles and the Echo line of automation hubs. However, if last year's deals (see below) are any indication, we'll also see some exciting sales on high-ticket items like laptops and wearables.

Starting June 21, a selection of Amazon's Fire TVs, tablets, Kindles, and smart home tech will be on sale for up to 55% off. See the full details in Amazon's Prime Day press release.

What to Expect on Prime Day 2022

Tech and electronics always make up a large part of the best Amazon Prime Day deals, primarily because the company has such a significant footprint in the smart home and digital assistant markets.

Beyond all the sales on Amazon's lineup of products, tons of other excellent tech stuff is also likely to be available on the cheap. Previous years brought killer deals on some of the best tablets, earbuds, and smartwatches. Apple products tend to see rare discounts on Prime Day, so if you've been holding off on picking up Cupertino's latest, it may be the perfect time to open your wallet.

It's also an excellent time to keep an eye on the competition. Best Buy and Walmart traditionally run sales to counterprogram against Prime Day, so it's worth stopping by their sites (or dropping by a brick and mortar outlet, if you're feeling bold) to see what's on offer.

Are There Deals at Other Retailers?

In an attempt to counterprogram against Amazon's massive deals bonanza, outlets like Walmart have launched their own sales events. The Walmart Big Save promised huge discounts, particularly when paired with their Walmart Plus program, which will net you free delivery and access to a bunch of member-specific sales. Target has also run a similar promotion, alongside a handful of other smaller retailers, to try to capture some of that Prime Day zeitgeist (and some of that Big Buying Energy).

What to Watch for on Prime Day

While many of the best Amazon Prime Day deals are what they appear to be (great discounts on flagship products), some of these sales are too good to be true. Beware of sellers trying to offload inventory, including products not selling because of poor construction or deceptive claims. Before buying anything, look at reviews (both on Amazon itself and editorial sites like Lifewire).

It's also worth keeping abreast of tech news around new releases, as Prime Day is also an excuse for retailers and manufacturers to ditch stock of previous models of an item before the latest model launches. That's not necessarily a bad thing and can result in some pretty spectacular price cuts on the last iteration of a product. However, if you prize having the latest and greatest, educating yourself on when the next generation will arrive can prevent buyer's remorse.
