Amazon Prime Day is the universe’s (and Jeff Bezos’) way of telling you “Hey, isn’t it time to treat yourself?” You’re right, the universe/Jeff Bezos. Amazon Prime Day is your opportunity to justify buying stuff because it’s all on great deals. We guarantee we’ll be buying lots of things this Amazon Prime Day.

When is Amazon Prime Day?

Prime Day 2022 starts on Tuesday, July 12 and the sale ends on Wednesday, July 13. 

Prime Day sales are for Prime members only, so be sure to sign up for your free 30-day Prime membership trial if you plan to make any purchases.

Best TV and streaming accessories to check out on Amazon Prime Day

Amazon Prime members don’t have to wait til Black Friday or Cyber Monday to get TV and streaming deals. We expect to see a ton of sales on 4K HDR TVs, streaming devices (like the Roku, Google Chromecast, and NVIDIA SHIELD), and other useful accessories to make your TV-watchin’ prime.

Prime Members can also tune in to the Prime Day concert featuring the goddess SZA performing with Taylor Swift, Dua Lipa, and Becky G.

Amazon Fire TV Recast

This Over-The-Air DVR comes in two versions:

  • 2-tuner: 75 HD hours (squeeze in a long 8-season dragon show)
  • 4-tuner: 150 HD hours

More tuners means more shows to watch and record at the same time. Extra storage means you won’t have to delete older shows to squeeze in new episodes of Riverdale and Supergirl. Pair it with an HD TV antenna to get a nice library of recorded shows and movies.

HD TV antenna

We’ve recommended the best HD TV antennas to get a ton of live HD channels for cheap—at least all your local networks. The 1byone Digital Amplified Indoor HD TV antenna is featured as a best-seller, but it’s worth looking at all of Amazon’s HD TV antennas to find the best deals.

And good news: these antennas will work with your Amazon Fire TV Recast.

Fire TV Cube

This 4K HDR streaming device includes voice commands for your TV, along with anything else connected to your Amazon Alexa systems like the Echo and Echo Dot. This is one of the best TV streaming devices out there, and it integrates with your smart home setup too.

Fire Tablets

Whether you’re looking at a Fire 7, Fire HD 8, or Fire HD 10 tablet, you’ll get a good deal on a mobile device that can handle streaming TV from apps like Amazon Prime Video, YouTube with Live TV, and Sling TV.

Oh, and remember books?

They’re digital now, and available on your Fire Tablet through Amazon in the Kindle format.

Samsung Sound Bar

A sound bar helps you immerse yourself in movies and shows by bringing you clearer, bigger sound. If you’ve ever relied solely on a TV’s volume, you’ll notice the volume spikes during action-packed scenes, while the dialogue is nearly inaudible. You should fix that because not all of your friends love reading subtitles (even though we do).

Best internet accessories to check out on Amazon Prime Day

If you need to spice up your internet setup for gaming, streaming, or plain ol’ web browsing, Amazon Prime Day sales can help you save some cash.

TP-Link Cable Modem

The best part of buying a cable modem is you won’t have to rent it. Some companies charge $10 to $20 per month to lease a modem, so save yourself the money—and trouble—and just get your own. Just make sure it’s compatible with your internet provider. This TP-Link cable modem works with Xfinity by Comcast, Cox, Spectrum, and more.

Samsung Chromebook

If you want an easy way to stream on the bus or work on the train, an Samsung Chromebook 4 is a convenient solution to your long commute.

You can also connect your Chromebook to an HDTV to turn it into a streaming device for the big screen. Plus, this Samsung Chromebook has a long battery life of 11 hours, so you can stay on the move without having to look for an outlet.

TP-Link Kasa Smart WiFi 2 Outlet Outdoor Plug

It’s summertime, so why not do a little work outside? Or take your laptop to the backyard with a blanket and stream while you sip on a cold drink?

Either way, this outdoor Wi-Fi plug will extend your internet’s range up to 300 feet. No need to choose between being a binge-watching hermit and a nature-loving hippie—now you can do both.

Best home security and smart home devices to check out on Amazon Prime Day

If you’ve had your eye on that sweet Ring Video Doorbell, or that Ring Stick Up Cam, or basically anything else in the Ring family, Amazon Prime Day is the day to treat yourself.

You can get a slick discount price on Ring cameras and home security equipment, as well as Amazon Alexa devices so you can control your new smart stuff with just your voice.

Echo Dot

This little smart assistant is here to make your life easier. The Echo Dot can do all the standard voice assistant stuff (check the weather, play music, set alarms, etc.), as well as give you a voice-activated hub for any smart home devices you want to use. Turn off lights, arm your security system, or lock your doors with just a few words.

Ring Video Doorbell

Tell package thieves to hit the road. No, seriously, you can tell them yourself through the Ring Video Doorbell’s two-way audio feature.

This video doorbell gives you a crystal-clear view of your doorstep throughout the day, and it’ll send you motion-activated alerts if anyone comes to call.

Package deal

Amazon is also offering a Prime Day package deal for the Ring Video Doorbell 2 and the Echo Dot. Get both for only $169.

Ring Alarm Home Security System

This was already one of the cheapest and best home security systems, and now it’s even cheaper for Prime Day. If you’ve wanted to get an alarm system but have been holding off because of the expense, Ring Alarm can give you peace of mind without costing you an arm and a leg.

Best cell phone and accessories to check out on Amazon Prime Day

There are some really rad cell phones and accessories out there, but they’re usually so expensive. With Amazon Prime Day in full swing, things are a bit more affordable. If you’ve been waiting to bite the bullet on something, Amazon Prime Day might be the time to finally add it to your cart.

Apple Airpods Pro with Wireless Charging Case

From personal experience, I can say that your life improves by at least 25% when you buy Airpods. The Amazon Prime Deal shaves $20 off the final price, which may not sound like much, but these beauties rarely go on sale, so get ‘em while you can.

Samsung Galaxy S9+ G960U 64GB Unlocked 4G LTE Phone

Unlocked phones are always more expensive than you think, but during Amazon Prime Day, you might be able to save a ton of money on a Samsung Galaxy S9+. If you’re thinking of switching over to a Samsung device, now’s the time to do it.

Are you ready for Amazon Prime Day?

Hopefully, you’ve been saving those Amazon gift cards—because now’s the time to use them. You probably won’t find a better price than the ones you see during Amazon Prime Day. So go ahead, take the plunge and get yourself that something-something you've been wanting.

Any lightning deals catch your eye this Amazon Prime Day? Did you finally buy that instant pot, Fitbit Alta, or noise-cancelling headphones you’ve wanted for so long? Please let us know in the comments below.
