Amazon Prime Day 2024: Get ready for Amazon's biggest shopping event of the year! (Amazon)

July is inching closer and, with it, Amazon Prime Day — the retailer's annual summer savings spectacular where you can score a ton of top sellers across categories at a mega markdown, from beauty and home to tech and outdoors and oh so much more. In past years, we've seen Prime Day deals numbering in the thousands for the two-day event, and we're expecting nothing less this year, including big price cuts anticipated on outdoor essentials, kitchen upgrades, tech and more, with top sellers discounted from big brands like Apple, Ninja and even Amazon itself.

To make the most of the experience (and the sales!), it's important to plan ahead if you want to make every dollar count... and that's where we come in. To ensure you're properly prepped, we're sharing everything we know now about Amazon Prime Day 2024, including a few early Prime Day deals you can "Add to Cart" right this moment. Keep on scrolling for the savings scoop on all the best Amazon deals!

Amazon hasn't released the official dates of their Prime Day sales event for 2024, but we do know that it will once again be sometime in July. Last year's summer Prime Day ran from Tuesday, July 11 to Wednesday, July 12. July Prime Day was set on a Tuesday and Wednesday in 2022, as well. So the smart money's on another round of mid-week madness. In any case, you don't have to wait to start shopping markdowns — read on to see some of our fave items that are already on sale at Amazon.

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. If you're not yet a member, don't sweat it — You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more all year 'round.) Not ready to join the club yet? Well, you can sign up for Amazon Prime at any time, including during PD itself. Along with the exclusive savings, you'll also be able to take advantage of benefits like free shipping.

Information on specific markdowns is soon to come, but we already have a tantalizing taste of the deals in store at Amazon Prime Day 2024. They include sweet savings on timely categories like warm-weather fashion finds, outdoor must-haves, and classics like electronics and kitchenware. Plus, it's almost guaranteed that the retailer will be offering big deals on their house-brand products, like Kindle, Fire TV, Echo, Ring and more.

Like last year's Prime Days, we're expecting mega markdowns on big brands like Apple, Ninja and Samsung, along with discounts on Yahoo reader favorites and highly reviewed bestsellers. Unlike Black Friday, where holiday shopping reigns supreme, Prime Day is particularly well-timed for checking a host of items off your own list, like travel necessities, summer-entertaining supplies, and upgrades for the home, office and even your beauty routine.

Stick with us here at Yahoo to stay apprised of all the emerging deals for Amazon Prime Day 2024. We'll have category experts on deck to keep you up to date on all the marked-down must-haves. We'll also be comparing prices with other retailers (and delving into price histories), so you can be sure you're getting actual deals — and this coverage will extend throughout all of Amazon Prime Day, so check back often for updates.

Plenty of other online retailers try to get in on the savings action, so sales will often start a little earlier at places like Target, Home Depot, Lowe's, Sephora and more. We also know that Walmart's own version of the event, Walmart+ Week, will be hitting on June 17 and lasting through June 23. Like Prime Day, this event is exclusively for Walmart+ members — becoming a member couldn't be easier; simply click here and you'll have the option to start with a free 30-day trial to see how you like it.

Prime Day deals technically won't be live until July. However, Amazon is already rolling out impressive early markdowns as a lead-up to Prime Day. Snap up these steals now.

Making breakfast at home can be one of the most tedious if you don't have a slick skillet that'll keep food from sticking.

That would be the Tramontina Professional Nonstick Fry Pan, which happens to be marked down big-time at Amazon. Who doesn't love a sizzlin' sale?
