Amazon has finally announced the dates for Prime Day in the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Egypt and other GCC countries. Prime Day is an annual two-day sales bonanza held by the retailer.

Amazon Prime Day 2022 is scheduled for Saturday, July 23 and Sunday, July 24 , the retailer divulged in a press release this morning. 

Exclusive to Prime members in the UAE, Amazon also recently launched a new 10% discount on Amazon Home Services for all Prime members, with no discount cap, on unlimited orders, applied directly at checkout. The new offer applies to over 95 on-demand professional services including car rentals, home cleaning, beauty, moving, pet grooming, repairs, and more, available to order from home through a hassle-free experience.

While Prime Day is designed for customers who are signed up for the Amazon Prime subscription service, a handful of deals are usually made available to all. That means even if you aren't willing to part with the membership fee you could still bag a discount or freebie next month. Of course, the very best will be exclusive to Prime members.

Luckily, if you've not signed up before, the retailer has a handy 30-day free trial (opens in new tab) for its Prime service. Redeem that today and it will cover you all the way through this year’s early Prime Day sales, the main Prime Day event and beyond. You also get immediate access to a number of other Amazon Prime benefits, including speedy same-day or next-day delivery, Amazon’s best Prime Video shows, Prime Gaming and a whole host more extras such as. 

Amazon Prime Day 2022 is now live in the UAE, Saudi Arabia and other parts of the Middle East. Here are some great deals to check out:

Amazon Prime Day 2022: what deals to expect

As for the deals we expect to see on Prime Day – which has grown to resemble something close to Black Friday and Cyber Monday in recent years – the best discounts are typically on Amazon’s own products. 

This means it's the best time of the year to buy tech such as Echo smart home gadgets, Kindle readers, Ring security devices and so on as they will be close to 50% off. 

Deals on major brands such as Samsung, Bose, Braun, Nutricook, Black+Decker, LEGO, and Philips will also feature. 

That being said, we occasionally see deals on higher-ticket items from other major brands such as Apple, LG, Nintendo and Sony on everything from laptops, TVs, games consoles and smartwatches. Though, naturally, these tend to sell out fast. 

All Prime Day deals generally run across both days – July 23 and 24 this year – but Amazon will sometimes drop limited-time and limited stock lightning discounts. We’ll have the low-down on all the best deals when they do go live next month, so stay tuned to TechRadar for the details.
