Memorial Day sales have come and gone, but there are more ways to take advantage of amazing sales and deals. If you're on the hunt for deep discounts and massive sale offers from brands like Apple, Vitamix, and Dyson, then get ready for Amazon Prime Day, summer's premier sales event.

When is Amazon Prime Day 2024?

Amazon's Prime Day for 2024 is just around the corner—this July to be exact. Although the specific dates haven't been announced yet, last year's Prime Day took place on Tuesday, July 11, and Wednesday, July 12, starting at 3 a.m. EST on Tuesday and ran through the end of Wednesday.

What is Amazon Prime Day?

Amazon Prime Day is a massive sale hosted by Amazon annually. The retailer offers exclusive discounts and deals to Amazon Prime members that typically last for 48 hours and features a wide range deals across various categories such as beauty, tech, home, fashion, and more. These discounts can be substantial, often rivaling those seen during Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

How much is Amazon Prime?

In order to participate in the sale, you'll need a Prime membership, which costs $14.99 a month. You can opt for the annual membership ($139) which saves you roughly $40. College students can join Prime for just $7.49 per month or $69 a year.

What are the best Amazon Prime deals to shop now?

The first round of deals will be announced on June 10, 2024, but you can check out these deals that are live now.

How many times a year does Prime Day happen?

Amazon Prime Day is typically held in July, however in the summer of 2020 (due to the pandemic), the retailer pushed back its summer sale to October. Since then, this additional sale has remained and is known as "Prime Early Access Sale." This October sale offers more opportunities to take advantage of deep discounts ahead of the holiday shopping season. Therefore, while Amazon Prime Day has traditionally been a once-a-year event, the retailer has fallen into the trend of hosting a second major sale in October, effectively making it twice annually.

Are all items on sale during Prime Day?

Since Amazon sells just about everything you can image, Prime Day offers sales and deals on almost everything in its inventory. If you can't wait until July, you can check out the bargains that are always available on the site. Happy shopping!
