The Amazon Prime Day deals have officially finished, with the home deals on handy products such as vacuum cleaners, steam mops and air fryers coming to a close. This money-saving event was scheduled for the 12th and 13th July and has now sadly come to an end. However, could there be more home deals to discover on the horizon?
Prime Day may have originated with Amazon, but that doesn't mean that you can't find great deals at other retailers as well:
Amazon US The home of official Prime Day deals
Best Buy A great range of home tech offers
Dell If you need a new computer or laptop
Samsung For home appliances and entertainment needs
Walmart Likely to have a sale with plenty of savings
Despite Amazon Prime Day usually being an event that only occurs once per year, there have been rumors that we might be seeing a second Prime Day in 2022. TechRadar reports that there have been leaked notices showing Amazon asking retailers to submit lightning deals by 22 July for an event called 'Prime Fall'. Lightning deals are limited-time savings that run out in a matter of hours, giving consumers only a short window of time to take advantage of those deals on Prime Day.
While 'Prime Fall' hasn't been confirmed by Amazon, it's worth keeping in mind that there might be another big Amazon sale later in the year. And, of course, if a second Amazon Prime Day doesn't materialize, we'll still be covering Black Friday in November.
To access Amazon Prime Day, you need to have an active Amazon Prime membership, which is currently $14.99 a month (or $139 a year). The good news is that the first 30 days are free if you're a new customer. Aside from being able to access savings on Prime Day, the subscription also includes free delivery on selected products, Amazon Prime Video, Prime Reading, Try Before You Buy and many more benefits.
While the deals below might have finished, it's worth taking a look to see what kind of discounts you could expect to see on a second Amazon Prime Day and Black Friday…
What is Amazon Prime Day?
Just in case you've been living in total self-isolation for the past year (usually that's a joke, but after the past few years, it isn't), Amazon Prime Day is a yearly sales event from the House of Bezos, which slashes prices on a wide variety of consumer goods. It usually runs for around 36-48 hours, and it happens around the end of June or start of July every year.
Amazon Prime Day is exclusively for people with Prime membership, so you won't see the deals unless you're signed up. However, we know that by the end of 2018 more than 95 million people had signed up for Prime, which accounted for half of the site's global usership. If we assume that Prime sign-ups have risen at the same level as users, then at least 50% of all Amazon customers will be able to take part.
Over the course of Prime Day, discounts are released in several different ways. Let's talk about them below.
When is Amazon Prime Day?
In 2022, Amazon Prime Day took place on Tuesday, July 12 and Wednesday, July 13. However, early Prime Day deals started going live on the site from June 21.
We'll update this article with the details of the next Amazon Prime Day as soon as we have them. Expect to access plenty of epic deals before the official date.
How does Prime Day work?
Assuming you've signed up for Amazon Prime and you've logged into your account, you'll see discounts across the whole site. In previous years, Amazon Prime discounts have been clearly marked across the site's 12 million+ products, so you know that you're getting the deal because you're a Prime Member.
There are always deals that run throughout the whole of Prime Day, which you can access at any time. Then there are daily Amazon Prime Day deals, which run for 24 hours, or until stock is depleted. And finally, there are Lightning Deals, which appear every few minutes, and run until all the stock of a particular item has been bought up. Sometimes Lightning Deals run for hours, sometimes minutes. Depends what the product is.
Once you've checked out with all your stuff, that expedited Prime delivery will see the products in your home within a few days. It used to be overnight in most areas, but since the explosion in at-home shopping during 2020, deliveries – while still free – can take a little longer.
How to get the best Amazon Prime Day deals
1. Sign up for Amazon Prime membership
The first thing to remember with Amazon Prime Day is that you need to be an Amazon Prime member to take part. While many people will already be members, many aren’t. Signing up for Amazon Prime is easy. If you’ve never been a member before, you can make use of the 30-day trial that allows for free Prime membership. If you want to cancel when the month is up, you can do so easily and it won’t have cost you a dime - besides what you spend on Prime Day itself, of course.
If the free trial is not an option for you, Prime membership currently costs $12.99 a month or $119 for a year. You’ll get faster delivery options, Prime Video, ad-free music streaming on Prime Music, and access to unlimited photo storage and Prime Reading all thrown in, so there’s little not to like.
