When does Prime Day end - and is it really the end?

We’re nearing the end of day two of Amazon Prime Day, with little time left to take advantage of all those deals. But the question is, just how much time do you have left? It depends on what part of the globe you call home, so we'll give you as many timezones as possible. 

Unlike Black Friday in which deals reach far beyond the end date of the actual day and into the weekend, Amazon Prime Day ends after the second day and rather abruptly too. Even if a company here and there extends its own deals, there's no guarantee that a best spotlight or lightning deal will go past the last day.

Here's when Prime Day 2022 will end in your time zone:

What time does Prime Day 2022 end?

For bargain hunters in the US, Amazon Prime Day 2022 ends at the following time:

  • 2.59am EDT on Thursday, July 14
  • 11.59pm PDT on Wednesday, July 13

As for folks shopping in Europe, Amazon has made the end of Prime Day relative to your time zone. Amazon UK's Prime Day ends at 11:59pm BST on Wednesday, July 13. French and German shoppers have until 11:59pm CEST, and so on.

Similarly, for those in Australia, Prime Day ends at 11:59pm AEST on Wednesday, July 13.

And how long do Prime Day deals last?

Good question. As we've mentioned, this year's Prime Day deals officially end at midnight tonight. The good news is that Amazon will be continually releasing new deals between now and midnight, so there's plenty of time to bag a bargain (if it's not already midnight).

Just bear in mind that these deals will run for differing amounts of time - firstly, depending on what type of Prime Day deal each one is; and secondly, on how long stock actually lasts. There are two main types of Prime Day deal: 

Deals of the day
These promotions run for a set amount of time, or until the product sells out. New ones are released throughout the day, and you’ll see a timer on the product page, showing you have long you have left to claim each deal - and in reality, the good ones have been on sale for quite some time and are already selling out, so be quick.

Lightning deals
These are fast promotions in which a limited number of discounts are offered on an item for a short period. These deals don’t last long, but if you have Prime, you get 30-minute early access.

You’ll need a Prime membership to get access to most of these deals, but if you’re not signed up, you can still take part with a free 30-day trial of Prime (opens in new tab). Amazon says it’ll be releasing lots of new deals throughout the entire 48-hour sale, so there’s still plenty of time left to grab a bargain. However, many deals have already sold out too so if you see something you like, it’s a good idea to grab it while you can. 

What to buy before Prime Day 2022 ends

You came here to find out when Prime Day ends, so clearly you're hoping to get some last-minute shopping in before Amazon metaphorically puts up the 'Closed' sign and shoos everyone off of the site.

So far, we've seen savings of up to 55% on the Kindle Paperwhite, Echo Show 5, Fire 7 Tablet, and Echo Dot, to name just a few. The retailer has also already launched a huge selection of budget-friendly Fire TVs, with prices starting at just $89.

You can control your smart home setup, as well as play music, check the forecast, set timers, and more, all with the power of voice commands

It's a bargain if you need a laptop for light use and basic tasks, such as browsing, sending emails and media streaming. Note: this deal has proven popular so the black, sage, and blue colors have all sold out. If you're interested, we'd strongly recommend picking up a tablet in the remaining plum color before Prime Day. Amazon may bring in more stock, but don't count on it.

It may not be the most powerful or feature the best quality display, but it is easily the best value iPad in the range. Do we think it'll go lower on Prime Day? Possibly, but this is more likely just a warm up ahead of bigger discounts on other models.

This TV features support for 4K resolution, HDR, and Dolby Digital, as well as Dolby Vision. This significantly improves the picture quality with a richer and wider color palette, and is usually reserved for more expensive sets. This, and the fact that we gave it 4 out of 5 stars in our Amazon Fire TV Omni Series review (opens in new tab), is the reason why we'd pick this one up over anything else.
