The Verge | June 16, 2022
Amazon’s annual shopping event, Amazon Prime Day, will officially kick off at 3AM ET / 12AM PT on Tuesday, July 12th, and run through Wednesday, July 13th, the company announced today.
This year’s Prime Day is a few weeks later than it occurred last year, but it’s maintaining its summer timing, as opposed to during the height of the pandemic in 2020 when Amazon delayed the event until October. And if you’re in the market for toys, tech, home goods, or pretty much anything else, it may be one of the best times to save money outside of the Black Friday / Cyber Monday holiday shopping season. It’s almost a guarantee that there will be some of the lowest prices to date on Amazon’s own products, as well as discounts on an assortment of other tech. Early deals start on June 21st, when Amazon will offer up to 55 percent off a range of Amazon devices, including the latest Kindle Paperwhite, the fourth-gen Echo Dot, and a number of other products.
Amazon didn’t provide exact details regarding what will be on offer, but it did say that the 48-hour sale will feature “the lowest prices ever” on select products from Beats, Bose, Sony, iRobot, and a number of other well-known brands. If past years are any indication, however, many of the deals to take the form of robot vacuums, noise-canceling headphones, and 4K TVs, as well as other types of electronics. Amazon will also be offering a wealth of additional promotions during Prime Day, including free games through Prime Gaming, discounts on services like Amazon Music Unlimited, and more.
Like previous years, Prime Day deals are available to Prime members living in the US as well as a number of other countries, including Austria, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Luxembourg, Mexico, the Netherlands, Portugal, Singapore, Spain, the UK, Poland, and Sweden. Amazon also says it plans to hold Prime Day events in India, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, and Egypt later this summer.
