If you haven’t realized already, we’re shopping fanatics here at StyleCaster. If there’s a sale going on, chances are, we’re covering it. If there’s a trend you’re seeing everywhere, the odds are, we’ve reported on it. So, now that Amazon has confirmed when Amazon Prime Day 2022 is taking place, we’ve got alarms already set on our phone to remind us of when the big day will be. Remember: Amazon Prime Day 2021 took place over the course of two days, and set the precedent for some major discounts.

Last Prime Day, we saw incredible sales on everything form AirPods and Apple Watches to Fire Sticks and Levi’s jeans. Practically every brand we know and love offered up some sort of discount as part of the big day, so you can probably expect the same type of eye-catching discounts this year. But that’s enough speculating. Let’s get down to the nitty-gritty.

What is Amazon Prime Day?

Amazon Prime Day is a savings event that takes place on where its Prime members can save big on the majority of brands that the site is home to. As we all know by now, you can buy pretty much everything on Amazon, including designer handbags and groceries, so this savings event can save you a lot of money on basically anything you need.

Think of it like Black Friday, but explicitly on Amazon and over the course of two days.

What Day is Amazon Prime 2022?

Amazon Prime Day 2022 will be two days starting Tuesday, July 12, and will run through Wednesday, July 13. This timeframe makes sense to us. Prime Day usually falls in July and at the beginning of a week. Except, of course, when it was a whole month earlier in 2021 (or in October in 2020—that was a wild time.

Prime Day begins a minute past mignight on PT, so 3:01 a.m. EST, and goes for just under 48 hours. So, this year, Prime Day 2022 will begin on July 12 at 3:01 a.m. for east coasters, and 12:01 a.m. for pacific coasters. Then, it would end on July 14 at 2:59 a.m. for east coasters, and July 13 at 11:59 for pacifc coasters. Man, time change is confusing.

Is everything on sale on Prime Day?

Pretty much everything on Amazon is on sale for Prime Day. Usually with Prime Day, lightning sales will be going on during specific time frames. These are usually the biggest discounts on super popular items, which is why the time these goodies are on sale is so limited. But, you can also find longer-lasting sales going on during Prime Day. Usually, brands like Levi’s, Adidas and Apple will have sales going on for the entire two-day extravaganza.

If you’re looking for electronics, those will likely be on sale during Amazon Prime Day 2022, as well fashion and beauty products we love.

Per Amazon’s press release about the big day, you can expect 55% off “select Amazon devices, up to 50% off Fire TV, and more deals from top brands like De’Longhi, Dove, and SodaStream.” Fire TVs and Smart TVs will be on sale for as little as $89.99. This year, you’ll also be able to use the payment plan Affirm to buy items at once, but pay over time. Amazon said: “From June 28 through July 11, Prime members can get 0% APR on three equal monthly payments when they spend $50 or more on eligible products on Amazon upon credit approval by Affirm. For example, a $300 purchase might cost $100/month over three months at 0% APR.” Not bad.

What is different about Amazon Prime Day?

Amazon Prime Day is different form other sales days because it takes place only on Amazon and includes the biggets discounts for Amazon products, like Alexa smart speakers and Amazon Fire TV Sticks. The two-day savings event features deals on name brands and also smaller niche ones that you can only find on the website. You can usually shop incredible discounts from designers, too.

It’s important to note that Amazon Prime Day is for Prime Members, so you have to be sure to have a membership or to have signed up for a free 30-day trial ahead of time to get the most savings as possible.

What should I buy on Prime Day?

This Amazon Prime Day 2022 you should plan to buy big-ticket tech items as well as Amazon products to get the most bang for your buck. Amazon Prime Day 2021 bestsellers included Instant Pots, 23 & Me DNA testing kits and huge packs of protein. Hey, like we said, you can get basically everything on sale for Prime Day, so why not stock up on a bulk pack of gains?

StyleCaster readers bought top-rated mascaras, butt-lifting leggings and artistic oversized rugs in droves over the course of Amazon Prime Day 2021.

We recommend buying Amazon products, like Fire TV Sticks and clothing essentials on Prime Day, as well as Apple products and, yes protein. Usually grocery essentials like Quest bars or bulk packs of soaps and cleaning supplies are on sale during Prime Day, so if you want to save money on those items, that’s the best time to do so. There are also typically incredible robot vaccum deals, as well as sales for clothing brands like Adidas, Levi’s and Calvin Klein.

Also, don’t forget about any streaming sales that might be ongoing. For Black Friday this past year, Amazon offered up some major discounts for its streaming service that included others like Paramount+ and HBO Max.
