Infallible tips and tricks to not miss the best offers of the Amazon Prime Day 2022

There is now little time left for the beginning of Amazon Prime Day 2022, probably one of the discount marathons in which it is most difficult to find your way. The event, reserved for subscribers of the Amazon Prime fast delivery service, lasts 48 hours, but there are advance offers before the actual discounts begin. While Amazon promises "millions of offers", the discounts displayed on the platform are often misleading or untrue. Add to this the frenzy for limited-time flash offers and reduced stocks due to ongoing problems in the global supply chain, there is a risk of overspending on the products you decide to buy.

For this, we have come up with a guide that answers all your questions: what time do the discounts start and end? How do you know if an offer is really advantageous? Find the answers to these (and other) questions below.

When is Amazon Prime Day 2022? This year, Prime Day falls on July 12 and 13. The calendar is similar to that of previous years, with the only exception of the 2020 edition, which was held in the fall due to the pandemic.

What time do the discounts start? The first offers have already begun, but the Amazon event officially kicks off at midnight on Tuesday 12 July. The sales will last 48 hours, until 23:59 on Wednesday 13 July.

Are Prime Day offers reserved for Prime members? Officially yes. To take advantage of the Amazon Prime Day discounts, you must be subscribed to Amazon Prime. A free 30-day trial is available for new accounts (signing up for the service brings many benefits, which you can find collected here). The trial period will allow you to take advantage of the discounts, but remember to unsubscribe to avoid automatic renewal. Some discounts are also available to non-subscribers, but the offers may not be as good.

Is it worth it? WiredLeaks, how to send us an anonymous report It depends. For some items, Prime Day prices tend to be among the lowest of the year. The speech mostly applies to Amazon devices, such as Kindles, Fire tablets, and Echo devices. However, there are other factors to consider as well. Prices fluctuate throughout the year and some products are discounted very often. Even if the price is good, a discount applied to a product that is always on sale must be seen from a different perspective.

The huge amount of offers promoted by Amazon during Prime Day is at the same time a blessing and a curse. Truly enticing discounts can be hard to spot: the sheer volume of discounted products is such that making a selection can seem like a huge undertaking. On the other hand, there is a good chance that the item you want is on offer. We've seen fantastic discounts on Prime Day in the past, from bargain Kindle prices to unmissable deals on Nintendo Switch. The hard part is finding the real pearls amidst the confusion.

How do I know if an offer is valid? Always check the prices. Looking for the price of a product is the most important thing in determining the value of a discount. Don't be fooled by deceptive marketing jargon or inflated recommended prices. The simplest strategy is to Google the items you are considering purchasing, in order to check the price of multiple retailers.

One tool we like to use is Camelcamelcamel, which tracks Amazon prices. in time. Just paste the Amazon link or the Asin code (found in the "Product Details" section on the Amazon item page) into the Camelcamelcamel search bar to see the lowest price recorded by an item, the average price and frequency. of price fluctuation. Some discounts, such as Lightning Deals, are excluded from the price history, but it's still useful to see how much an item has been sold in the past.

We also really like Keepa, which has an extension (available for different browsers) that shows the recent price history of products directly on the Amazon page, without having to open a new tab. Another great service is Honey, which can potentially save you money thanks to promotional codes, as well as keeping track of the price history of various retailers on the web (here is an explanation of how it works).

Please note that these services may not always work. Having the opportunity to see how much a product cost just before the discounts started (and if the maximum sale price has increased) can still be very useful. The combination of these tools can help you figure out if you should spend your money on a product on offer.

What is a flash offer? See more Subscribe to Gadgetland and other Wired newsletters! Arrow Lightning Deals are discounts that Amazon activates suddenly and for a limited time (only for a few hours). While not exclusive to Prime Day, Lightning Deals are especially common during the event. Once an item is out of stock, it is possible to join a waiting list (but not always).

Products that end up in Flash Deals are often items that are bought on impulse, such as make-up products and skin care or toys. Prime subscribers can see upcoming offers on Amazon's website and mobile application (sometimes the app will warn users before a flash offer starts).

How to buy a product first is out of stock It is always a disappointment when a discounted item is out of stock. If you know when an offer is starting, keep an eye on the product page around the start time. Sometimes you may even have the option to add an item to your cart before the offer begins, so you can then refresh the page and grab it.

How not to get carried away It's easy to fall into Prime Day trap. For example, you may find a really good deal on a product that you don't really need. In this case, don't buy it. Make a list of the items you wish to purchase before the event and save the links. When Prime Day begins, take a look around to see if they are on sale and use the tips we've listed above to make sure it's a really good deal. Don't buy a product just because it has a good price.

If you want to make the most of Amazon Prime Day 2022, you might as well think about making a list of gifts to give to friends and family. You can buy them during Amazon's discount marathon if the price is cheap, or wait until Black Friday to find similar, if not better deals.
