Amazon finally announced the official dates for Prime Day 2024, and here's the skinny: This year's summer Prime Day spectacular will begin on Tuesday, July 16 and run through Wednesday, July 17. This is a touch later in the month than normal — last year's summer Prime Day ran from Tuesday, July 11 to Wednesday, July 12. If you want to get super granular, we have those details too: the event officially begins at 3 A.M. EST, and will run a full 48 hours.

Amazon Prime Day, a tradition that the retailer launched in July 2015, is a massive site-wide savings event exclusive only to Amazon Prime subscribers. We know you may be saying, okay, this is all well and good, but what are the sales?? Information on specific markdowns is soon to come, especially now that we have the official dates, but we already have a hint at some of the deals in store for Amazon Prime Day 2024 — you can check out our favorite early Prime Day deals already on deck right here.
