Perhaps you've asked yourself one question: When is Amazon Prime Day? It's understandable, seeing that the shopping site delayed its biggest sales event of the year to October last year just ahead of the holiday shopping season due to the coronavirus pandemic. But this year, Amazon has returned to its regularly programmed annual Prime Day season, summer.
The behemoth online retailer announced on June 1 that Prime Day 2021 kicked off on Monday, June 21 at 12 a.m. PT and end on Tuesday, June 22 at 11:59 p.m. PT. Now is the time... and soon!
The confirmation comes after sites like CBS News, Wirecutter, Bloomberg and other outlets reported that Prime Day 2021 would take place over two days in late June, with a second shopping event in the fall so you can shop for holiday gifts (yeah, you and your bank accounts will want to build some stamina).
What will be available for Prime Day?
We're still learning more about exactly what will be on sale for Prime Day 2021. Like every Prime Day sale that's come before it, this year's sale event surely had early Prime Day deals up for grabs for shoppers like it would during the holiday season -- like TV deals, laptop deals or a deal on an iPad, Macbook or Apple watch. But if there were any specific products we'd advise to keep on your radar to get the best Amazon Prime Day deals, it's Amazon products. Perhaps you've been keeping some Amazon devices (like an Amazon Kindle e-reader to go with a Kindle Unlimited subscription, a Ring Video Doorbell, a Fire TV Stick, Fire tablets or an Amazon Echo smart speaker) in your cart over the previous year. Well, now's your chance to finally get a one for yourself -- at a lightning deal. In the past, asking Alexa would've scored you exclusive Amazon Prime Day deals. This year, be sure to ask Alexa "What are my prime day deals?" to hear the best lightning deals at Amazon's huge day.
If last year's epic Summer Sale was any clue, we're seeing incredible fashion deals on women's clothing, men's clothing, shoes, designer handbags and so much more from brands like Levi's, Ray-Ban, and Amazon's own fashion brands.
This is also the perfect time to get a head start on your holiday shopping. Along with Amazon's expansive line of products, Prime Day shoppers will be able to find everything they could need; laptop deals, home and kitchen gear, clothes, toys and so much more. And if you aren't sure where to start, don't worry—we'll be keeping you posted on all of the Prime deals we'll be bookmarking for ourselves.
