Amazon Prime members look forward to Prime Day every year. This sales event helps them save big as it offers discounts on thousands of items. If you’ve been eagerly waiting to know when this year’s Prime Day will kick off, you’ll be glad to learn that Amazon has officially confirmed the dates for Prime Day 2024. From home appliances to PC hardware, you’ll have the chance to save a lot of money on everything, so make sure your credit cards are ready.

When will Amazon Prime Day 2024 start?

According to Amazon, this year’s Prime Day will kick off on July 16, at 12:01 AM PDT, and will conclude on July 17 at midnight PDT. This means you will have two full days to get the most out of the sales event. However, do keep in mind that the deals will most likely start popping up early, so you’ll need to keep an eye out for them a few days before Prime Day. Although these deals may not be labeled as Prime Day, they are still essentially part of the event.

What can you expect from the sales event?

Prime Day is well known for offering some of the biggest discounts of the year. You can expect to see deals from major brands including Sony, Samsung, HP, ASUS, Dell, Razer, and more. During specific hours, Amazon will introduce new deals every five minutes. This means you’ll need to stay sharp to catch the best offers.

As for the discounts, they’ll be different for every product. However, you can expect to save more than $100 on several items. Overall, you’ll see millions of deals across more than 35 product categories when the event kicks off.

How to prepare for Amazon Prime Day 2024

To get the most out of Prime Day 2024, you’ll need to be a Prime member. If you aren’t one yet, now would be the perfect time to sign up for it. The best part is that Amazon offers a 30-day free trial, which can help you experience the benefits of Prime. After the event ends, you can either end your subscription or continue with it.

Another strategy is to browse Amazon now and add your favorite products to your Amazon wishlist. This way, you can quickly check if any of the items are on sale when the event kicks off.

Of course, we’ll also be constantly updating our deals section with the best Amazon Prime Day deals. So we’d recommend keeping our page bookmarked in your browser so you can return to it easily. Setting up price alerts on certain products can be very helpful too, as you’ll get notified if the price drops.
