(Pocket-lint) – Een van de grote verkoopdagen online is Amazon Prime Day. Deze dag wordt in het midden van het jaar gehouden en Amazon verlaagt de prijzen voor een breed scala aan producten, waaronder mobiele telefoons.
Dit biedt vaak de mogelijkheid om tegen een gereduceerde prijs een toestel te bemachtigen en voorgaande jaren waren er veel toestellen om enthousiast over te worden.
Hier is alles wat je moet weten over de telefoonaanbiedingen die je op Prime Day 2022 kunt verwachten.
When is Prime Day 2022?
That’s a closely guarded secret of Amazon. Over the past couple of years we’ve seen the date moving around. In 2019 it was 15 July, in 2020 is was delayed until 13-14 October and in 2021 it was 21-22 June. However, it has been confirmed that Prime Day will be held in July in 2022 – and we expect it to be in the middle of the month – perhaps 12 or 19 July.
The Prime Day sales are natural counterpoint to the Black Friday sales and give Amazon the opportunity to move on stock in a mid-year sale and give you the chance to grab a bargain.
What devices will be discounted on Prime Day?
There are usually discounts across a range of manufacturers including Apple, Samsung, Oppo, OnePlus and others.
If you’re looking for an iPhone deal you might be in luck – with Prime Day coming some 9 months after the launch of the iPhone 13, it’s likely that will be included in the sales, but the bigger discounts are likely to be on the older iPhone 12. As there’s not a huge difference between these devices, the smart shoppers might want to snap up the 2020 iPhone instead of the latest model.
Samsung launched the Galaxy S22 family in early 2022 and if previous years are anything to go by, Prime Day will likely be a good time to get a discount on some of those latest models – we saw £245 off the price of the S21 Ultra is 2021 and with Samsung it’s definitely worth waiting to buy if you want the best deals. OnePlus often discounts too, as does Oppo.
We have left some examples of devices discounted in 2021 below for your reference.
Are there genuine deals on Prime Day?
You do need to shop carefully on Prime Day. While some of the cited discounts might be questionable, the prices offered are usually competitive. Often, these will be around the lowest that these phone have been offered for, but they may have seen similar prices in previous sales, around Black Friday for example.
Prices do sometimes fluctuate and it’s important to keep your eyes on when Prime Day actually starts, as it’s a short event and you normally only have 24 hours to make your purchase, because those devices will return to the full retail price.
Do I need to be a Prime member?
Yes – that’s the catch with Amazon Prime Day – it’s an exclusive sales event for Prime subscribers. That means you’ll need to get yourself Amazon Prime to get access to the best prices on the day. If you’re not already a Prime Member, there’s a 30-day trial, so you can sample the benefits – free delivery, Prime Video, Prime Music, Prime Reading and more.
