When Is Prime Day 2022?

Amazon Prime Day 2022 will kick off on Tuesday, July 12 and last through Wednesday, July 13.

While the biggest Prime Day deals don't usually drop until the two-day event is well underway, you can expect to see a lot of discounts hitting the site over the next few weeks. Because there are literally thousands of products on Amazon to choose from, it's easy to feel overwhelmed, but you'll get more out of this online shopping super-sale if you go in with a strategy (shopping lists help) and target big-ticket items that rarely get marked down.

To that end, below are 10 of the best early Prime Day sales on products that we don't expect to drop much lower in price, so if you've had any of these fan-favorites on your Amazon wishlist (or in your cart as "Saved for Later" items), you might want to grab them now while these offers are still good.
