What is Amazon Prime Day, again?

Here's a brief recap, in case you're not familiar with it: Prime Day, which began eight years ago, is Amazon’s biggest shopping event for Prime members. This hugely popular sale features markdowns on thousands of products across a slew of categories — tech, kitchen essentials, vacuums, apparel, beauty must-haves and so much more.

When is Amazon Prime Day?

Amazon's second Prime Day event for 2022, called the Prime Early Access Sale, will take place on October 11th and 12th. Prime Day traditionally takes place in July, and the first Prime Day 2022 event was held on July 12th and 13th.

Does Prime Day have sales on everything?

Not everything is on sale for Prime Day, but a lot is. This is usually the day when you'll find huge discounts on top-rated brands and products you know and love.

Is Prime Day just at Amazon?

Technically, Prime Day is just an Amazon thing. However, Walmart and other big retailers tend to run big sales at the same time to try to get in on some of the buying action.

What are the deals not to miss?

No one knows yet which products will go on sale. But if history repeats itself, and we suspect it will, some of the best deals will be on Amazon Devices, like the Fire TV Stick 4K and the Fire TV.

Yahoo readers' most purchased products last Prime Day? On-ear headphones from Beats and Sony, Crest Whitestrips, Ninja air fryers, Apple AirPods, the Apple Watch and iRobot Roomba robot vacuums. This Prime Day should follow suit, offering major markdowns across categories. Here are some stellar deals that are already happening:
