When is Prime Day 2022?

Prime Day 2022 has already happened — but that doesn’t mean that the deals are done. Amazon has actually announced a second major shopping event for the year, which it calls the Amazon Prime Early Access Sale. We’re not quite sure what kinds of deals to expect just yet, but we do expect some pretty huge savings.

What is the Amazon Prime Early Access Sale?

This is the first time we’ve seen the Amazon Prime Early Access Sale, and Amazon describes it as a way for customers to get early access to deals that you would normally have to wait for Black Friday for.

What is Prime Day?

Amazon Prime Day is Amazon’s biggest shopping event of the year. During the event, Amazon offers huge discounts on its own products, like the Amazon Echo and Fire TV. But all kinds of third-party companies offer deals of their own during the event too — so no matter what you’re looking for from Prime Day, there should be something for your needs.

Do I need Amazon Prime for Prime Day or Early Access?

Yes, you do. Amazon Prime is required for Prime Day and the Prime Early Access Sale. If you don’t currently have Amazon Prime, you can sign up for a 30-day trial. There are also some discounts available for Amazon Prime — for example, students can get Amazon Prime at only half the price. Prime members can get some other great deals as well — Prime members can currently get channels like Starz and Showtime for $0.99 for two months.

How do I prepare for Amazon Prime Day?

The first thing you’ll want to do to prepare for Prime Day or the Early Access Sale is to make sure that you have an Amazon Prime subscription. This will allow you to actually take advantage of the Prime Day deals. It’s also worth making a list of the deals you want to take advantage of, and bookmarking our roundups that relate to those product categories. Here’s a list of some of our Prime Day deal roundups:

Is Prime Day worth it?

Prime Day and the Early Access Sale are definitely worth keeping an eye on, and so is the Amazon Prime Early Access Sale. That’s especially true for products that you’re already planning on buying, as you may find a steal — but it’s also worth checking out the other deals from Prime Day.
