Fall Amazon Prime Day is almost here! 🙌🍂

We’ve been waiting and speculating about the dates of the Prime Early-Access Sale, otherwise known as Fall Amazon Prime Day 2022, and now it’s almost here!

Set your alarm & get ready because in just a week you can start enjoying Prime Day deals! The 2022 Prime Early Access Sale will take place on October 11th and 12th.

The Fall Prime Day allows us to shop the hottest deals — sometimes even better than Black Friday! It’s an exclusive savings event for Prime members only and shopping is a great way to score the best prices on everything from electronics to beauty.

With Amazon Prime Day becoming such a huge event in recent years, we’ve also seen other big-box retailers like Target and Walmart step up their game to compete with the incredible Amazon savings.

Walmart is getting ready to launch some big savings, recently announcing on their Twitter page that shoppers should get ready for major savings and new rollbacks on October 10-13! We’ll keep an eye out and see what Walmart has in store for us!

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 the Fall 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 Fall 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!!!

    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.

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

    • riss

      ***it’s been meh

  4. Csandst1

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

  5. Casey

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

    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.

    • shandabell

      I can’t find any of my save and subscriptions items anywhere cheaper than Amazon and the price is locked it! Tide, Clorox wipes, cereal, nuts, Folgers, Maxwell House, etc. I’m sure it’s what products you buy and prefer. My shipping is always extremely fast! Walmart and Target have a minimum of $35 now.

  7. 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.

  8. Daisysocrazi

    You can also get a year free with Grub Hub.

  9. SAM

    Not seeing the free trial for Amazon Music when clicking the link. Is it still available?

      • SAM

        Thank you 🙂 I ended my subscription about two weeks ago, so maybe it’s too recent for even the three month offer to show up. Thanks so much again!

        • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

          You’re welcome! Thanks for the update! ❤️

  10. bremoeller

    Does anyone know if the 40% off Floor care at target includes Dyson stick vacuums?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      I’m not seeing those marked down at the moment when searching through. We’ll keep an eye out! 👀

  11. Ivy

    I’m finding that Amazon is less and less worth the yearly membership myself. The more it goes up an the less impressive the event are the less I feel like renewing. Now Walmart makes it more appealing to switch to them. Amazon really disappointed me this last year. Nothing is 2 days anymore even though they advertise it as such and customer service just blames COVID. Walmart gets it to me in less than 2 days most of the time. So does home Depot for that matter. I just can’t get excited about Amazon anymore. I really think that I’ll let my sub drop this October.

    • Claudette (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks for the honest feedback, Ivy!🥰

  12. Emily R

    Last prime day I was able to score 23 + me for a decent price. I know you can’t predict the future, but do you think this roundup of sales will produce discounts on 23 +me. I want to buy some for my family. I got an email discount for 10% off but was hoping for more.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      We’ll be sure to keep an eye out, Emily R! 👀🤞❤️

  13. shandabell

    I thought for sure I recently received an offer for a $200 GC sign on bonus for the Amazon credit card. Then I wanted to sign up for a college student Prime account for my son. I’m so bummed because I can’t find it!
