When is Prime Day 2022?
Update: We have confirmation! Prime Day's two-day event is happening on July 12th and 13th this year.
Amazon loves to make us wait but so far, we know Prime Day is coming in July. 2021's shopping days fell on June 21st and 22nd, so we won't be surprised if a mid-month Monday and Tuesday event happens this year as well.
What should we expect to be on sale?
In a word: Everything.
