When is Amazon Prime Day 2022?

Amazon Prime Day is back for a second time this year, with Amazon confirming Prime Day 2022 will run from October 11-12.

We are no strangers to the event falling in October with it being pushed back to October 13 in 2020 due to Covid-related delays.

But it's the first time the retail juggernaut has had two Prime events in one year, and we are going to keep an eagle eye to see if this will be a trend next year.

You need to be an Amazon Prime member to shop the sale – you can sign up here. You'll then get added perks like early access to lightning deals, so it's worth it to bag savings.

As with any subscription service, it comes with a price, recently raised to £8.99 per month, or £95 per year, but if you just want to sign up for the event you can utilise the 30-day free trial period – which we'll even walk you through how to cancel (we all need to watch the pennies).

What Amazon Prime Day deals to expect?

The best deals will likely be on Amazon's own devices, including Echo Dots, Fire tablets, Ring video doorbell and Kindle e-readers, so keep you eyes out for even bigger price drops.

You'll even find offers on its subscription services, such as Audible, Amazon Music Unlimited and Kindle Unlimited, often seeing a huge 3 month long trial periods.
