The two-day event is confirmed to be taking place on 12 and 13 July (The Independent)

Believe it or not, Amazon Prime Day is almost upon us again. The date for the 48-hour shopping bonanza has been confirmed for 12 and 13 July and we’re now officially just days away. In the meantime, the retailer dropped a whole host of early offers on 21 June, so there’s plenty of deal-hunting to get on with before the big day.

Since starting out in 2015 as a celebration of Amazon’s 20th anniversary, the now annual event has since become one of the biggest flash sales of the year.

The 48-hour bonanza sees prices slashed across tech, gaming, clothing, beauty, alcohol, fitness, TVs and plenty more. It’s also your chance to save on homeware and kitchen appliances – from air fryers and mattresses, to cordless vacuums and coffee machines.

Home to brands including Shark, Simba, Ninja, Tower, Eufy, Swan and Nespresso, Prime Day is one of the best times in the year to stock up on pricey items. And we’ve already had a sneak preview of some of the upcoming savings, including up to 30 per cent off on large appliances from brands such as Bosch, Candy, and Samsung, as well as on small kitchen appliances from Panasonic and Toshiba.

With last year’s event being Amazon’s biggest yet, the stakes are even higher for 2022. As such, we’re here to help you prepare your shopping lists and answer all of your burning questions ahead of the sale, from the early deals you can shop now to whether you need a Prime membership.

When is Amazon Prime Day 2022?

Amazon has confirmed that this year’s Prime Day sale will take place on 12 and 13 July. But, early deals dropped from 21 June onwards, which is the earliest that discounts have ever dropped for the event. In previous years, the early bird offers usually began around 10 days prior to the main event.

More recently, rumours have even been circulating of a second Amazon Prime Day. The event could take place in October, according to leaked memos reported by Business Insider, and while talk of Prime Day No.2 has flown around before, it has never actually taken shape – this year, though, it’s all still to play for.

Discounts on Amazon’s own devices started on 8 July, meaning you can already bag great savings on select devices, including 42 per cent off the Echo dot 4th gen (Was £49.99, now £29, Amazon.co.uk), 40 per cent off the Echo show 5 2nd gen (Was £74.99, now £44.99, Amazon.co.uk), 71 per cent off Ring home security (Was £124.98, now £35.99, Amazon.co.uk) and much more.

The best early Prime Day deals 2022

Shark corded stick vacuum cleaner [HZ500UK] anti hair wrap, purple: Was £249.99, now £178, Amazon.co.uk

 (Amazon)
(Amazon)

There’s no better time than Prime Day to invest in a vacuum cleaner and this corded offering from Shark is one of Amazon’s top deals. At a healthy 29 per cent off, it features anti hair wrap technology which removes hair from the brush roll as you clean. LED lights work to highlight any hidden dust and dirt, and the flexible head makes hard to reach spots easy to get to. Because it’s corded, there’s no chance of being left in the lurch and losing charge halfway through vacuuming - plus the top detaches to become a handheld vacuum. Although we haven’t tested this vacuum specifically, a similar Shark model landed the top spot in our review of the best corded vacuum cleaners, where our tester said they were “bowled over by the suction” of the upright vacuum and that it was an “ingenious two-in-one machine”.

(Amazon.co.uk)

Named best overall in our food blender round-up, this Ninja blender is now an impressive 34 per cent off on Amazon. “This is a brilliant blender which won’t just churn out your favourite smoothies, but a wide range of other drinks, too (we were particularly impressed with its ability to produce delicious milkshakes),” raved our tester. They also added that “the powerful 1,000W motor and precision-engineered blades result in some seriously quick blending, and made light work of items such as nuts and grains.”

(Amazon.co.uk)

Two De’Longhi coffee machines featured in our best bean-to-cup coffee machine round-up, so although we haven’t yet tried this model, we can attest to the brand being pretty great. And with a discount of 26 per cent, this one is even more tempting. Claiming to make all coffee shop favourites – and two cups in a single brew – as well as frothing milk for flat whites and cappuccinos, it seems hard to fault at first sight. So, if you’re a coffee connoisseur, it may be well worth giving this machine a go.

A newer model of this robot vacuum, the Neato D10, featured in our best robot vacuum round-up. While it might be a little older, this one has the same D-shaped design which is one of this vacuum’s biggest advantages as it can get to hard-to-reach corners any round model would struggle with. It has up to 100 minutes of run time and with 26 per cent off right now bringing it down to £279, it’s a lot more budget-friendly than its sub-£500 brother.

Crowned “best for side sleepers”, our tester said: “The foam that Panda uses for this ultra-supportive pillow is really firm – not uncomfortably so, it has plenty of squish – making it perfect for side and front sleepers, and its thick bamboo case is soft, cooling, and hypoallergenic.”

Now with 22 per cent off, the version for toddlers is also dust mite free and boasts an antibacterial bamboo cover that should be a doddle to take off and pop in the wash.

A similar Flymo model with the same rear roller earned a spot in our round-up of the best lawn mowers; our tester praised the roller for “laying a discernible stripe on our lawn, while the compact design allowed us to cut close to hard borders and also made the mower very easy to move around while cutting.”

Our tester was very honest in their review, sharing, “we’ll be upfront: when we first saw this stand mixer next to the lineup of cool retro-styled models, we weren’t sure if we liked it. But as we used it, it grew on us very, very quickly”. The weight and easy to store design both topped the list of why they loved it, as did the price point – and now that it’s even cheaper, surely it’s a no brainer.
