Amazon Prime Day 2022 is almost here, which means you’ll soon be able to score deals on travel gear and other items on Amazon. For this year’s event, Amazon is touting its “lowest prices ever,” with exclusive member deals already rolling out.
You’ll likely notice discounts at other stores like Walmart, Target, Best Buy, and Backcountry, all of which have offered their own version of Amazon Prime Day in the past (in some cases continuing sales after Prime Day).
Read on to find out more about the biggest shopping event of the summer.
What is Amazon Prime Day?
Amazon Prime Day is an annual two-day event where Amazon and its sellers offer deep discounts on items such as appliances, technology, toys, and more. Like Black Friday and Cyber Monday, it’s meant to drive spending and reward consumers (or in this case, Amazon Prime members).
Do you need to be an Amazon Prime member to take advantage of Prime Day deals?
Yes, the online shopping event is exclusive to Amazon Prime members. If you’re not a member, you can sign up for a 30-day free trial (if you haven’t been an Amazon Prime member in the last 12 months) to take advantage of the offers. Unless you cancel within 30 days, your subscription will automatically renew for $14.99 per month (or $139 per year). Prime membership benefits that are useful for travel and at home include:
- Free One or Two Day Shipping
- Two-hour grocery delivery service
- Access to streaming services, such as Prime Video and Amazon Music
- Prime Gaming with free games and a Twitch channel subscription
- Kid-friendly books, educational apps and more via Amazon Kids+
- Amazon Photos for unlimited photo storage (vacation) and 5 GB of video storage
