Don’t miss these rival sales competing with Amazon Prime Day
Amazon Prime Day 2022 arrives on 12-13 July. Prime Day offers thousands of exclusive discounts site-wide. Of course, to pick up a Prime Day discount, you’ll need a Prime membership. The service costs £7.99/US$14.99 per month (or £79/$139 for the year).
