Prime Day 2022 will be here soon!
Amazon has announced the dates of this year’s Prime Days 2022: The event willl take place July 12-13 and will offer sales from national brands and small businesses across every category. We can take a guess at some of the products that will likely be on sale based on previous Prime Day deals.
If you’ve never shopped Amazon Prime Day, expect to see deals on more than 2 million products. That’s an awful lot of discounted items to wade through, which is where we come in. As the editorial staff of Simplemost and our sister site, Don’t Waste Your Money, we spend a lot of our time reviewing products and finding deals in order to help readers make the smartest buys possible. We’ve used that expertise to generate a list of the Prime Day deals you really don’t want to miss.
If you are reading this and thinking you’re not able to take advantage of these deals because you’re not a Prime member, keep in mind you can become a member and start shopping discounted items the same day. If you’re not sure you want to sign on for the $14.99 per month cost of Prime, Amazon offers a 30-day free trial. The retailer also offers discounted plans for students ($7.49/month) and for qualified recipients of government assistance ($6.99/month).
So, what deals are we likely to see this Prime Day? Take a look at a few of our best guesses and keep checking back.
The Fire TV Stick is a particularly popular Prime Day item. While there are a few different models, this Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote has the most reviews, with 184,382 customers giving it a full 5-star rating.
Regularly $40, prices on Fire TV Sticks have been slashed by as much as 50% or more on previous Prime Days, so expect a pretty good discount.
This 6-quart Instant Pot is one of the brand’s more popular models and was a bestseller on Prime Day 2021, so chances are it (or a different version of the InstantPot) will be on sale. It can cook everything from soup and rice to cake and yogurt. Regularly priced at $130, it is currently $95, but it’s a good idea to wait and see what the Prime Day price will be on this model or a similar one, as chances are you’ll be able to get a better deal than the one currently being offered.
With more than 52,000 reviews, the 6-quart Instant Pot has an average rating of 4.7 out of 5 stars, with 84% of customers giving it a full 5 stars. Reviewers say it is easy to use and many reviewers say they use it every day. One reviewer who gave it 5 stars says they never put it away and it cooks everything to perfection.
“Perfect, pasta, boiled eggs, rice, chicken, broccoli. Everything,” they wrote. “The secret is the fact that you can time everything to the perfect time setting. No need to get the latest most expensive unit. They all do the exact same thing.”
Another bestseller during Amazon Prime Day 2021, the 23andMe Health + Ancestry Service: Personal Genetic DNA Test will likely be on sale. The test includes health predispositions, carrier status, wellness and trait reports, along with a DNA test to learn more about your ancestors and maybe even find relatives you didn’t know you had.
Regularly priced at $199, it is currently on sale for $149, but prepare for an even bigger discount for Prime Day 2022.
While we can’t promise this exact model will be on sale, chances are good that there will be at least some robotic vacuums on sale, so you’ll want to keep an eye out.
The iRobot Roomba i3+ EVO is regularly priced at $549, but is currently $399, so if it’s on sale for Prime Day 2022, it will likely be even more affordable. The vacuum learns your home and creates a map so you can direct it to clean any room you want, anytime you want. The vacuum’s automatic disposal allows it to empty itself into an enclosed bag that captures 99% of particles.
With 8,256 5-star reviews, customers say it has great suction power, is good for pet hair and has good battery life. One customer who gave it a full 5 stars wrote that it is the best robot vacuum they’ve ever had.
“I love that I can use Alexa/Google to start the vacuum and I love that I can use it over and over and over again without ever touching it or needing to empty the bin,” they wrote. “I have a 1000 sqft open floor plan with tons of furniture and different rugs and the navigation system is fantastic.”
If you’ve been considering adding security cameras or an alarm system to your house, the popular Ring security cameras and alarm systems are usually included in Prime Day deals.
Ring products include a variety of indoor and outdoor cameras and the very popular doorbell camera, plus you can add a Ring Protect Plan for extra security. The doorbell camera is regularly priced at $99, but is currently on sale for $85. You can likely expect it to be cheaper during Prime Day, so keep an eye on Amazon’s Ring product page.
If you’re wanting to beat the heat this summer, you can save $198 on this Easy Set Pool with Cartridge Filter Pump, now priced at $147. A savings of 53%, the pool measures 12ft x 30in, it is made of puncture resistant 3-ply durable material and can be assembled in just 10 minutes.
With nearly 10,000 5-star reviews, customers say the pool is is a great value, big enough for multiple people, easy to set up and many say they use it every day in the summer.
