Walmart Prime Day deals 2022: what to expect in this year’s sale – TechRadar

Walmart is just one of the big retailers that take on Amazon with its own yearly Prime Day sale. This year should be no different with a myriad of bargains across the entire site – encompassing everything from super-cheap TVs, appliances, mattresses, and tons of cheap tech. 

Last year’s Walmart Prime Day sale came in the form of the trailers ‘Deals for Days’ event, which like Amazon, ran for two days in mid-June. This year, we’re expecting that date to be pushed back to mid-July, which is the traditional calendar slot for Amazon Prime Day. Right now, nothing’s been announced, however, so it’s a good idea to bookmark this page and revisit it closer to the event. 

We’ll not only have all the details in regards to dates once they’re confirmed but we’ll also have the best Walmart Prime Day deals themselves as soon as they land. We’re still a way off yet but it’s likely this sales even will be one of the biggest, if not the biggest, outside of Black Friday and Cyber Monday in November.

In the meantime, we’re updating this page with everything we know and what to expect in the upcoming sales. If you’re interested, you’ll find a selection of last year’s best Walmart Prime Day deals just down below.

When will Walmart’s Prime Day deals begin?

As of writing, no date has been announced for Amazon Prime Day 2022. That said, we’re fairly confident that this year’s event will fall in mid-July, most likely either Monday 11th to Tuesday 12th, or Monday 18th to Tuesday 19th. In recent years Amazon has held a two day event and its always been during the second or third week in July.

The one exception to this was last year, when Amazon decided to push the dates for its mega-sale forward a full month. It did this because of general worries at the time of supply chain disruption due to the pandemic. Now things are returning back to normal we expect the retailer, and others like Walmart, to revert back to the usual mid-July start point.

Walmart Prime Day deals: what to expect

Last year’s Prime Day deals at Walmart encompassed everything from premium mattresses to cheap laptops. It was, quite probably, the biggest online sale of the year outside of the usual Black Friday and Cyber Monday candidates. 

While it’s hard to single out one area as being particularly good in the Prime Day deals at Walmart, last year’s sale was great if you were on the hunt for a super cheap TV or home appliances. Favorite brands like Instant Pot and Dyson in particular saw some of their lowest prices all year and we’d be surprised if they weren’t featured again in 2022. Alongside these staples, it’s also highly likely that Walmart will be competing with Amazon and Best Buy to offer cheap laptops and discounted Apple products.

Will you need Walmart+ to get the best deals?

Good question. Traditionally the answer has been no. Non-Amazon Prime Day retailers like Walmart and Best Buy have generally offered their best prices to everyone regardless of memberships, unlike Amazon itself. 

Over the past year or so, however, we’ve seen these retailers offer more and more incentives to those who are signed up to their premium membership services – such as early access to sales events or PS5 / Xbox Series X restocks. Because of this, it might just be the case we see something similar for Walmart’s Prime Day deals, with members getting early access. The retailer did this very thing back on Black Friday last year, so it’s not out the realms of possibility.
