Prime Days 2022 revealed: July 12-13

Amazon has officially revealed that Prime Days 2022 will be July 12 and 13 in 2022, which, according to my calendar are Tuesday and Wednesday. This event is open to Prime members only.

If you are not a Prime member, you can still participate by starting a strategic 30-day Prime free trial that includes July 12-13 time window. Amazon is well aware of this and encouraging it because they know that a sizable percentage of those who start 30-day free trials will stick around as paying Prime members for eternity 🙂

Alternately, if you are not eligible for the free trial, but you also don’t want to commit to the $140 per year plan [back in our time kids, Prime was $100 per year but we had to climb up the internet hill backwards at dialup speeds to get it!], you can start a $15/month month-to-month membership and keep it only for the time window that covers the July 12-13 Prime Dayz.

Remember, a Prime membership also includes access to Amazon’s videos and movies, so you can factor your TV/movies streaming/watching schedule into the decision when to start your 30-day free trial!

A Prime membership includes many other benefits as well. To give you a general sense, we have a Prime Benefits round-up post at the main blog, but note that it was last updated in late April 2018, that’s *GASP* four years ago 🙂 Time sure does fly!

Kindle YMMV: Spend $15+ ebooks Get $5 e-credit

We have another variant of the Kindle eBook Credit offer. This is YMMV, may be only pre-selected customers and requires simple offer activation (eg by visiting the offer page while logged on to your designated Amazon account).

The offer this time is this: spend $15+ and get a $5 ebook promotional credit that must be spent within 21 days of issuance.

The purchase window to get to $15+ is June 13-24 in 2022. As in previous incarnations, the whole purchase window counts as long as you activate the offer within the window. So if you activate on the 23rd, all purchases from the 13th on-wards still count towards the $15+ target…

At the Monday Woot dailies there’s a broad price-range of Viewsonic projectors ($110 to $1000), and refurbished Microsoft Surface bundles from $170 to $420…

If you want a Chromebook-type laptop price but running Windows 11 in S Mode instead, the headliner of the Monday Best Buy dailies is a 14-inch ASUS for $130. Yes, one hundred and thirty dollar(e)s! New condition with 1-year warranty! The trade-offs? Intel Celery 4020, 4GB RAM, 1360×768, and a very claustrophobic 64GB of on-board storage.

S-Mode is easy to get rid of if you don’t want it, just a setting change. But note that once you get rid of S-Mode, you can’t bring it back!

Yes, someone opened the door at an ASUS warehouse and used up whatever leftover parts they found. They should have called it “The Leftovers” 🙂 But did I mention it’s just $130? 🙂
