Amazon's biggest sale event of the year is happening. Prime Day 2022 will be July 12 and 13 according to an announcement released Thursday. Amazon shoppers snagged deals on air fryers, electronics, TVs and more. If you're trying to plan your sale strategy for this year, we're here to help. Here's how we're planning to shop Prime Day sales this year.

What Is Amazon Prime Day?

Prime Day is Amazon's biggest sale of the year. (Even bigger than Cyber Week and Black Friday!) The sale will last for two days (July 12 and 13) and boasts the best deals on kitchen tools, appliances, televisions, electronics, home goods, fashion and more on Amazon's site.

Do You Need to Be a Prime Member?

If you didn't sign up for Amazon Prime shipping last year, now's the time to do so. You'll only be able to take advantage of many Prime Day prices as a Prime Member. It costs $119 for a year or $12.99 per month, and if you're a student, don't forget to take advantage of special pricing discounts on a Prime membership.

When Do Prime Deals Start?

Amazon's Prime Day deals will start as soon as June 21 this year. Amazon shoppers will find Amazon devices, TVs, and subscriptions to Amazon Music, Wondery+, IMDbPro, Amazon Live and Audible Premium on sale. Plus, Prime members will be able to snag discounts on groceries with Amazon Fresh Store benefits. We'll be keeping an eye on some of our favorite kitchen brands including Le Creuset, GoWise air fryers and smokers for sales and deals, too. You'll also find home and electronic deals you don't want to miss in the days leading up to Prime Day. The official Prime Day start date is July 12 and 3am PDT.

What Should You Buy on Prime Day?

Best-sellers and larger appliances tend to sell out first on Prime Day. So, if you've had your eye on the Instant Vortex air fryer for months now, or have been dying to buy a KitchenAid stand mixer for less, start with those products first. Add them to your cart and buy immediately. They may not be there when you're ready to shop a couple of hours later.

And don't forget to check out our must-buy lists. We love shopping — and writing about it — so when you're feeling overwhelmed by the thousands of products on sale for Prime Day, we're here to help. Starting the morning of Prime Day, July 12, we'll be putting together lists of the best sale prices for top products we swear by. If you're not sure where to start, these picks are a way to narrow your Prime Day shopping strategy with ease.

Deals to Shop While You Wait for Prime Day

These are some of our favorite kitchen items available on Amazon, and we'll be watching them to see if they go on sale for Prime Day, July 12 and 13. Check back with us to find out what products are officially on sale for Prime Day this year starting June 21.
