The best Prime Day 2022 Home sales
Want to freshen up your place? From mega-popular small appliances to bestselling linens, you’ll find plenty of home sales worth taking advantage of right now. Ramhold recommends making a beeline for Amazon on Prime Day if you’re in the market for small kitchen appliances, like pressure cookers, coffeemakers and blenders. “The bulk of deals at Amazon on Prime Day are home and garden items, and other retailers will be likely to price-match Amazon’s offers. It’s almost a guarantee that there will be some kind of deal on a few Instant Pot models,” she says. No big surprise here, as the Instant Pot has been a Prime Day superstar since the early days. “We also already know that Amazon will have select Vitamix blenders for up to 30% off and up to 50% off select Keurig items.”

The streaming device is down to $40 right now, which is a return to its record low. Not only does this gadget give you access to services like Netflix, YouTube TV and others, but it also supports classic casting from your smartphone and other devices.
Aside from Black Friday, Amazon Prime Day is the best time of year to pick up an Echo device since most of them are deeply discounted. Amazon didn’t disappoint this year — all of its Echo Show smart displays are on sale for Prime Day, key among them being the second-generation Echo Show 8 for $75. That’s $55 off its usual price and a new record low.

You can save 50% off top-rated sets (like this Toshiba 55-Inch Class M550 Series for $350, down from $800)!
Lightning deals are fleeting Prime Day sales that are gone in a flash — some in as few as four hours and while supplies last, so you’ve got to act fast. It’s best to get ahead of the game by navigating to Today’s Deals, then scrolling down to Prime Early Access Deals, where Prime members can see and shop lightning deals up to 30 minutes before they’re released. Of course, Prime Day made Lightning Deals famous, but they’re actually available year-round. Here’s the Lightning Deals landing page.
The Lightning Deals on electronics are always fun: we routinely see up to 50% off bestselling projectors, smart watches, earbuds and walking shoes.
If you’ve been holding out for a Prime Day deal on the Apple TV 4K, there’s no need to wait — the 32GB model has just dropped to $120 or 33 percent ($59) off the regular price. That’s the cheapest we’ve seen yet on Apple’s streaming device that offers features like 4K HDR, gaming, the Siri Remote and more.
When is Amazon Prime Day 2022?
Prime Day is one July 12th and 13th in more than 20 countries. Historically, Prime Day has taken place mid-month, after the July 4th holiday, and in time for back-to-school shopping for states that return to classrooms in late July and early August.
What is Amazon Prime Day?
Prime Day, which began eight years ago, is Amazon’s biggest shopping event for Prime members. The stellar sale includes markdowns on thousands upon thousands of products: tech, kitchen essentials, vacuums, apparel, beauty must-haves and so much more. And the deals are not only on Amazon — in 2022, just about every other retailer will launch competing sales, making it a strategic day to shop for the best deals outside of Black Friday/Cyber Monday.
Some of the biggest deals will be on Amazon Devices, like the Fire TV Stick 4K, and the Echo Dot. Also, Yahoo readers’ most purchased products last Prime Day included Apple AirPods Pro, Crest Whitestrips and Sony WH-CH710N Noise Cancelling Headphones. This year, it’s highly likely you’ll be able to score mega-deals on these items as well — and so much more.
Does Prime Day have sales on everything?
Not everything is on sale for Prime Day, but a lot is. This is usually the day when you’ll find huge discounts on top-rated brands and products you know and love.
Is Prime Day for Prime members only?
Prime member benefits include free two-day shipping and delivery, and same-day or even two-hour shipping for eligible items and locations. It also comes with access to Prime Video, Amazon Music (2 million songs, ad-free!), free two-day delivery on prescriptions from Amazon Pharmacy, free video games via Prime Gaming (formerly Twitch Prime), unlimited full-resolution storage with Amazon Photos and so much more.
Can I get the deals with a free trial membership? If so, How long is the Amazon Prime free trial?
Yes, you can enjoy the perks of Prime Day — and all of the other benefits of being an Amazon Prime member — with the free trial membership. The trial membership is for 30 days.
How do I find the best deals?
There are a few things you can do to score big on your favorite items. The first is to get familiar with the popular pages across the site that typically host the best sales:
Deals of the Day: These sales last for a full 24 hours.
Lightning Deals: These deals last for only a few hours, while supplies last. Prime members get access to these sales 30 minutes before they go live to the public.
Savings and Sales: Ongoing deals throughout the event on select brands and products.
Amazon Coupons: You’ll find instant savings in this section.
We also recommend setting up a ‘Wish List’ at Amazon. That way, you’ve identified your must-have items before Prime Day, and once the sales go live, you can add them to your cart stress-free.
If you haven’t already done so, downloading the Amazon app is a must, as it allows you to watch the deals you’re interested in and get notified when they start.
