Amazon Prime gift card deals

Amazon is offering some excellent Gift Card deals for Prime Day 2022. Here are the best of them!

Get $12.50 if you spend $50

Amazon is actually offering some excellent gift card promotions for Prime Day 2022. Notably, Amazon will give you $12.50 in credit if you spend $50 or more on an Amazon Gift Card or eGift Card. You can still get that credit if you get the gift card for yourself, so it may definitely be worth trying to calculate how much you’ll spend on Prime Day and buying gift cards to cover that cost. Head here for the deal page!

There are other Gift Card deals too — though perhaps not as easy as the one above. For example, you can get $20 in Amazon credit if you spend $75 on essential home products, like dishwasher detergent and paper towels.

How to prepare for Prime Day 2022

If you’re preparing for Prime Day 2022, you will need to sign up for an Amazon Prime account. Amazon Prime membership is currently $14.99 per month or $139 per year. You can start a free 30-day trial on Prime close to the dates of the sale.

You’re only eligible for the free trial if you have not been a member in the past. If you do not wish to retain your membership after the sale, make sure you cancel before the one-month trial ends.

We recommend making a list of the types of new products you’re in the market for. That will make it easier to make sure you find everything you need and make sure that you don’t get sucked into buying things you don’t necessarily need. Also as we have pointed out, early Prime Day deals start weeks before the actual shopping event.

Here’s a list of other key Prime Day 2022 coverage:

How to find the best Prime Day deals

Price check everything

When shopping on Prime Day, the most important rule is to price check whatever you’re buying. CamelCamelCamel is a website that can help out with this. It tracks price lows, so you’ll be able to see if the item you’re looking at was cheaper at some point than it is right now.

There’s also a Chrome extension called Camelizer, which you can install and click on anytime you want to look at the price history of a product. If you’re an Amazon Prime member and are shopping on Amazon.com, any big brand should be displaying the correct pricing.

Watch out for shady reviews.

You should always be on the lookout for fake reviews. Although Amazon has removed many bogus reviews from its website, there are so many that it’s become near-impossible for Amazon to keep up.

Fakespot can analyze the quality of reviews on any Amazon page and assign a letter grade indicating whether the product has mostly fake or real reviews. ReviewMeta is a similar site that looks for suspicious terminology or repeated phrases in reviews and offers a failing or passing grade. 

Try to scan for in-depth reviews on any item you’re about to purchase. If most of the reviews on an item consist of the same generic phrases, there’s a high chance that the reviews are fake.

Avoid buying junk

Amazon and many of its 3rd party sellers are sitting on a stockpile of unsold items. As a result, you can expect to see a fire sale on a range of off-season items and apparel during Amazon Prime Day 2022. It’s advisable to buy only things you actually need to avoid the trap of not-so-useful purchases.

Don’t be afraid of refurbished items.

If you’re looking to make huge savings, a refurbished item may be the best route. Amazon tends to offer solid refurbished Apple Watch deals. There’s also an Amazon warehouse website listing deals on pre-owned, used, and open-box items.

FAQ

What is Amazon Prime Day?

Straight from the source, here’s what Amazon says about its once-a-year shopping event.

Prime Day is an annual deals event just for Prime members, with more than one million deals worldwide. You’ll find our best deals on products you want, and special offers across everything from music and video to reading and Alexa-enabled devices.

Amazon

When is Amazon Prime Day 2022?

Amazon has announced that Prime Day 2022 will take place on July 12 and 13. It’s a two-day shopping event this year, meaning that you’ll have multiple chances to pick up that perfect deal.

Is Prime Day once or twice a year?

When Prime Day first started, it was a one-day event. At some point in the last couple of years, Amazon decided the shopping extravaganza was too big for only one day of deals. Prime Day should be a two-day shopping event this year. That said, those days are consecutive — so don’t expect another Prime Day later this year.

Are things actually cheaper on Amazon Prime Day?

Yes! Not only does Amazon discount its products on Prime Day, but plenty of other companies also get in on the fun too. Lots of things are cheaper on Amazon Prime Day, so it’s well worth taking advantage of the event.

Do other retailers have Prime Day deals?

Technically speaking, no. Prime Day is exclusively an Amazon event. However, many other large retailers launch promotions of their own to take advantage of the huge online audiences around Prime Day.

Is Prime Day worth it?

Yes. If you’re in the market for a new device or product, then Prime Day is absolutely worth taking advantage of. You have to be an Amazon Prime member for these deals.

Do I need Prime for Prime Day?

Yes. You will need Amazon Prime to take full advantage of the Prime Day 2022 deals. Amazon Prime offers things like free two-day shipping, access to Prime Video, and more. It’s worth it for those who regularly shop on Amazon for the shipping alone. Amazon has discounts for some people too — like students.
