Tips for Prime Day
This year’s Prime Day is actually spread over two days, July 12th-13th, 2022. It begins on Tuesday the 12th at 3 AM EDT and lasts for exactly 48 hours.
While there are sales every minute of Prime Day, there are some strategies to maximize your savings. Amazon releases “Lightning Deals” that last for limited periods on Prime Day.
Some of the best deals are usually during the times that people arrive at work, since most online shopping occurs when people are sitting at a desktop computer. Experts recommend waiting until 9:00AM-12:00AM EDT to make purchases.
Amazon also offers coupons. This year there is also the ability to earn a $10 credit by collecting four digital “stamps” when you perform tasks like watching a show on Prime Video. If you plan to see either Lightyear or Elvis in theaters, you can get a $5 Prime Day credit when you buy a ticket here.
Finally, you can get a $200 Amazon Gift Card when approved for an Amazon Prime Rewards Visa Signature Card on Prime Day. Apply for it here.
Take note that you will need to be a Prime member to take advantage of these deals. For more info, check out our list of 8 things to know before signing up for Amazon Prime in 2022.

Be wary, though, because there is some “junk” out there in this category. Two brands that we’ve vetted and trust are Antennas Direct and Mohu. Both have high quality products and excellent customer service.
