Here’s everything else you need to know about Fall Amazon Prime Day 2022

Amazon Prime Day is one of the biggest sales of the year, and while anyone can shop on Prime Day, most of the best deals are available exclusively to Prime members. Amazon also offers Amazon Prime Member Early Access Deals — some are already available! This means members get a head start to shop the hottest deals before everyone else (while supplies last, of course).

Alexa can also get you early access to some major Prime Day deals – no secret password or puzzle-solving necessary!

So, if you’re not an Amazon Prime member yet, it’s a great idea to sign up before tomorrow’s big Prime Day event or even take advantage of Amazon Prime’s FREE 30-day trial. Either way, you’ll have the best shot at scoring all of the hottest Amazon Prime Day deals!

What deals can you expect to see during Fall Amazon Prime Day 2022?

While most of the Prime Day deals won’t be announced until just before (or during) the sale, Amazon has released some select deals early.

The Summer Amazon Prime Day Sale included deals on popular brands like Beats, Casper, ELEMIS, Levi’s, iRobot, SharkNinja, Amazon Essentials, and Carter’s. Plus, the lowest prices ever on select products from Sony, Bose, and GE! We expect to see many of these brands offering deals at the upcoming Fall Prime Early Access Sale too. 🙌

Get the most bang for your buck on Fall Amazon Prime Day 2022 (and every day)!

Another way to score huge savings at the Fall Early Access Sale is to apply for an Amazon Prime Credit Card if you don’t already have one. This credit card is a team favorite among us Hip2Savers because the perks are truly the best. It’s a total no-brainer if you’re a Prime member and a frequent Amazon shopper!

When you’re approved for an Amazon Prime Rewards Visa Card, you’ll instantly get a FREE $50 gift card! Plus, Amazon Prime members earn 5% back every day on Amazon and at Whole Foods Market, 2% back at restaurants, gas stations, and drugstores, and 1% back on all other purchases.

Prime members also get a whopping 10% cash back (and sometimes more) on rotating Amazon categories and products, so it’s easy to watch your rewards stack up fast.

    I have the Amazon Visa card and that is all I use on Amazon (and woot) shopping. Where would I see what categories are the increased percentage back? (“Prime members also get a whopping 20% cashback on rotating Amazon categories and products, so it’s easy to watch your rewards stack up fast.”)

    • Mrs C

      If you go to your Amazon account and scroll down to “Your Amazon credit cards” scroll down a little more to “see all benefits” you’ll find all you need to know. Hope this helps!

      • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

        Thanks a bunch for your helpful response, Mrs. C! Much appreciated! 🤗

      • CJ

        Thanks so much, Mrs C!!!

  2. Nikki

    That’s crappy. I’ll be working those days.

  3. nicole harding

    for the music do you have to have a subscription to stamp the card?

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Nicole! Amazon Music is a streaming service included with your Prime membership at no extra charge – so you would be able to listen to a song with prime music, as long as you are already an Amazon Prime member, to collect the stamp. Hope this helps! 💕

  4. Lisamarie

    Which TV is shown in the picture that was posted?

      • Lisamarie


      • dbjohnson039

        Actually looking to get one of these for my home office….any idea if they will be on sale during Prime Day?

  5. Sara

    Prime Day, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday through Christmas Day on Amazon are a pain in the butt. Lightning Deals work fine until these sale periods. Every time the ability to watch an upcoming deal disappears until several days after the sale. This happens on both the app and the website. I miss almost every gift card deal because of this. I have to refresh the deals page every five minutes to have a chance at catching any good deal. My time is worth more than that. This problem is why I am going on a cruise on Cyber Monday. I’m tired of dealing with this crap. I won’t feel bad if I forget to go to Amazon during any of these periods.

  6. riss

    I hope this year is better than the past few years. It’s beenmeaning, to say the least.

    • riss

      ***it’s been meh

  7. Csandst1

    Agree that deals aren’t great. I rarely buy anything. Last year I was the worst “sale” and I use that term loosely.

  8. Casey

    Have been unimpressed with recent prime day sales. I do appreciate targets competing deal days, usually some decent home and toy deals.

  9. Wren

    Also unimpressed in years past.

  10. Chantel

    I don’t shop Amazon. I really just don’t find that it can compete with the other options. IF it will ship to my area it still takes at least 2 weeks to get it. It is worse than shipping used to be in the pre 2 day shipping days Target is my go to. Recently,I have found that Walmart has really stepped up in both pricing and shipping speed. Even without a membership I was able to get an item I needed for a last minute kid’s birthday in 2 days. It was also cheaper than Amazon by far. Walmart and Target both employ in my local community and offer drive up and regular shopping. I really don’t understand the allure of Amazon. They just can’t compete.

  11. Aimee

    I did the stamps and got them all. Was sent the email saying I got $10 credit but can’t find it anywhere in my account. It has been over 48 hours.

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Hey there Aimee! I had luck going back to my original email from Amazon and clicking through there. You could also try switching to a desktop if you are on a mobile device to see if that helps. Hoping it shows up for you in your account soon! 🥰

    • Hartsell

      I couldn’t “see” it either, but when I made a purchase, it took $10 off.

      • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

        Hey there! Thanks so much for pointing that out for readers! After completing your Stampcard, your $10 reward may appear on your account as a $10 off “coupon” rather than a $10 reward applied to your gift card balance. In this case, it may also be automatically applied to future purchases after you’ve earned this reward. 💕

    • rin75

      For the stamp requiring a “prime eligible purchase,” how do you know what qualifies? I tap the “Go shopping” tab once I clicked on the stamp but the items I want to buy are not listed.

  12. Sylvia

    I’m already a prime member and they keep offering me $125. reward to get one. They just started this a couple of days ago with me. So I don’t know if it’s the same deal or something different.

  13. Karri

    Was wondering if Apple watches would be a good deal now or should I wait until Black Friday??

  14. Daisysocrazi

    You can also get a year free with Grub Hub.

  15. TJ

    I signed up for the walmart+ a day ago and never received a promo code. Any advice?

  16. Laura Lynn N.

    Regarding the $10 credit for completing the Stamp Card (if it appears you haven’t received it). Amazon may also apply it to any Subscribe & Save order(s) you have. I found out after contacting Customer Service that part of my credit was applied to an existing S&S order and part to a new one. When I reviewed the invoices, it was listed as a credit with the title Prime Savings. I think it’s crazy that they did it this way, but one of my S&S items is currently delayed shipping, so I guess they thought that was the best way to apply the credit.

  17. Marilyn Painter

    I am on my d-i-l’s Prime account so I am not the main Prime member. I have less privileges – basically just the free shipping. Worth it!

    Question: Do I need to be the main Prime member to qualify for the $200.00 credit if I open an Amazon Visa credit card?

  18. Bryant

    I literally watched a Prime Video last night on my Fire TV but did not receive a stamp of it. Do I have to watch it online for it to count?

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      So sorry for the trouble, Bryant! On this post, readers were having luck watching from a logged-in device, but also directly through the link on the Stampcard email. Personally, I streamed a quick Prime kids show, and it was marked completed within 24 hours. Hoping this is helpful! 💕

  19. Karajayne3

    Mine is only offering 150.00 is there a way to get the 200.00

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Hey there! I think that the offer could vary by account. You might be able to contact customer service to see if they have other offers available for your account. Hope this helps! 💗

  20. AngieM

    Best Buy is in on this sale also

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Sweet! Thanks so much, AngieM! 🥰

  21. chickie00

    I got all but the movie stamp. It’s been almost 48 hours since I did it, but I won’t hold my breath that I’ll get it before Prime is over. ah well. I didn’t even realize it started so early. oops!

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Hoping it comes for you soon! 🤞💗
