Amazon Prime Day 2022 is here, and so is back-to-school shopping — talk about a match made in heaven! While back-to-school shopping can be fun and exciting, it can also be expensive — from the cost of tech needs to essentials for your new dorm room, your wallet may be silently screaming for help as you add everything to your cart — and especially if you’re balling on a budget. 

Thankfully, Amazon Prime Day, which runs from July 12 through July 13 this year, offers some amazing deals on so many of your back-to-college needs, from things you need (or want) for your dorm room to new tech accessories. To take advantage of this once-a-year sale, make sure that you have an Amazon Prime membership — and luckily, college students get a discounted membership!

Here are some back-to-college Amazon Prime Day deals — from tech items to dorm room essentials to desk supplies — that you won’t want to miss out on this year.
