The highly anticipated annual Amazon Prime Day sales event is coming back for its ninth year, and we’ve got all the details shoppers should know ahead of time, including a few early deals.

It’s no secret that this is one of the biggest shopping events of the year, but it only lasts two days, which is why so many people aim to prepare as much as possible. You’ll see massive markdowns across all categories like home, kitchen, beauty, apparel, tech, pets, and so much more at shockingly low prices.

When is Amazon Prime Day 2024?

Although Amazon hasn’t officially announced the exact dates of when Prime Day 2024 will take place, we do know that it’s slated to happen sometime in July. Last year, the two-day sale was on July 11 and 12, but the powerhouse retailer is known to mix things up. No matter the dates, it will be the same parade of deals with tons of Lightning Deals popping up throughout.

With that being said, it’s beneficial to check back often to ensure you don’t miss out on any of the best deals. You never know what might go on sale at any given time, and there’s no telling how long highly sought-after items will stay in stock.

What is Prime Day?

If you’ve never heard of Prime Day before, you’re in for a real treat. Some refer to it as “Christmas in July” since many of the discounts are comparable to those you might see during other major sales events like Black Friday and Cyber Monday. One of the perks is that this is a two-day sale that lasts a full 48 hours and gives shoppers a chance to fill their carts without feeling too rushed. Of course, you shouldn’t wait too long to make your selections as popular items will sell out, but you have more than a few hours to make your purchases.

All you need to do in preparation is to sign up for a Prime membership for only $14.99 per month or $139 a year. New users also have the option to start a 30-day free trial that automatically renews once the trial ends.

Not only does a membership grant you access to thousands upon thousands of markdowns during Prime Day 2024, but it also unlocks several other bonuses. The membership also gets you free two-day shipping, hidden discounts throughout the year, Prime Video, Prime Gaming, and Prime Reading. You’ll even get 30-minute early access to Lightning Deals every day.
