When is Amazon Prime Day 2022?

Since 2015, Prime Day has typically taken place in mid-July. However, Amazon changed the event date to October in 2020 and late June in 2021 due to the pandemic and shipping delays. A recent press release shared with Shop TODAY officially confirmed that the 48-hour event is set to happen on July 12 and 13, and early deals kicked off on June 21.

When are Prime Day early deals?

Amazon announced that it will be releasing early deals three weeks before the big two-day event is set to happen. Now through Prime Day, Prime members can look forward to discounts as much as 55% off "select Amazon devices, up to 50% off Fire TV, and more deals from top brands like De'Longhi, Dove, and SodaStream."

How long is Prime Day?

Prime Day 2022 will last for 48 hours, beginning Tuesday, July 12 at 3 a.m. EDT and ending Wednesday, July 13.
