What Is Amazon Prime Day?

Prime Day is a two-day sales event that Amazon hosts every year. During the sale, you can find discounts on over 2 million items across virtually every category, including lightning deals with a limited amount of discounts offered. Throughout the sale, you can find major deals on everything from the biggest kitchen brands to top-rated smart home devices.


When Is Amazon Prime Day 2022?

In 2021, Prime Day was on June 21 and 22, but it was previously always held in July (aside from the October sale in 2020). This year, Amazon is back to its July schedule with Prime Day kicking off on Tuesday, July 12, and running until Wednesday, July 13.


What to Buy During Amazon Prime Day

It's almost impossible to sift through the millions of deals that Amazon has to offer during Prime Day, so going in with a game plan is crucial to getting the most out of the mega sale.

Last year, we got the inside scoop from RetailMeNot on the best things to buy during Prime Day, including back-to-school items, kitchen appliances, home decor, and smart home gadgets. This year, we can expect the same categories to trend, with back-to-school essentials taking the lead considering the usual midsummer timing of the sale.
