Amazon announced the 2022 dates for Prime Day, and people are understandably freaking out. This year's highly-anticipated sale event will take place on July 12 and 13, and folks are already planning their summer shopping around those dates.
But here's a tip: You can get really incredible deals on Amazon right now. Rather than waiting until Prime Day, when items you're eyeing may be sold out or only available in a handful of colors or sizes, shopping early means you can get exactly what you want. And yes, you can still save money, too.
If you need new knives, bed pillows or a portable Bluetooth speaker for outdoor gatherings this summer, buy those items on Amazon this weekend. The prices are already low, and you'll be able to start enjoying them weeks before Prime Day. And be sure to check out more must-shop deals on Amazon below.
