Amazon Prime Day 2021: best deals available now
Amazon Prime Day 2021 is coming this Monday and Tuesday, starting June 21 through June 22. Early Prime deals have already started showing up, and many more deals are going to come on Monday.

Prime Day is a 2-day shopping spree held every year, with generous discounts across all product categories, including tech like phones, tablets, headphones, smart watches, and Amazon's own line of Kindle readers. The only catch: you have to be a Prime member.

Now, from June 7 to June 20, encouraging members to shop at small businesses, Amazon gives Prime members a $10 credit after a purchase from a small business that they can spend on shopping during Prime.

In this article, we will have the best Prime deals available for you as they show up.

Are BestBuy, Walmart, Target having a Prime Day Sale?


It's not only Amazon deals that we will see on Prime Day. Many other retailers slash prices around Amazon Prime Day, so you might get lucky with some good sales on phones at Walmart, Best Buy, and Target. Last year at Best Buy Prime deals were quite generous, both on iPhones and Samsung Galaxy phones, as well as other products.

Prime Day deals at Target were under the banner "Deal Days" and the discounts there are going to be available for the full 3 days. Walmart deals for Prime Day are also going to happen; there, the shopping event's name is "Deals for Days 2021".

What is Amazon Prime Day?


  • Amazon Prime Day is the biggest Amazon shopping event, usually held over two days in the summer.

Prime Day allows customers to benefit from generous discounts over the entire range of products Amazon sells: from tech to home and garden.

What happens on Amazon Prime Day?


Well, simply said – Amazon discounts a lot of products over a two days, and Amazon Prime members can purchase items with generous discounts. Other big retailers also give discounts at that time, to compete with Amazon, so deals appear almost everywhere. For Prime Day deals, you do need Prime membership, which we explain in detail further down in this article. The good thing is that other big retailers, such as Best Buy, Walmart, and Target, also slash their prices around Prime Day, so finding great deals is pretty much a given.

How does Amazon Prime Day work?


First off, Amazon announces that Prime Day deals are available, and you can browse through them in order to make your purchase. To benefit from Prime Day deals, you need to be a Prime member. When deals are announced, you can browse on the Prime Day deals page.

Who can use Amazon Prime Day?


Members with the Prime subscription can benefit from the deals on Prime Day. The cool thing is that you can get a trial for Amazon Prime just in time for the big shopping spree, even if you're not a member. Additionally, deals on other retailers, such as Best Buy, Walmart, and Target, will also be available, so if you prefer to shop from these ones, you can do so, plus you don't need a Prime membership for them.

Are Prime Day deals worth it?


There is not a definitive answer on whether or not Prime Day deals are worth it. We’ve seen both scenarios previously, and last year as well – we’ve seen extremely good products at very low prices, but we’ve also seen discounts that were too modest to be a deal worthy of Prime Day.

Our advice here is to add a few items that you like to your cart without ordering. Amazon will inform you of any price changes. That way you will know if the item's price has been bumped up artificially prior to Prime Day to make the Prime Day discount seem more substantial.

On top of that, we've made a guide on how to shop Prime Day deals, so you may want to check that out to avoid any mistakes and to make sure you will get the best out of this Prime Day shopping spree.

How long is Amazon Prime Day?


Amazon Prime Day is a two-day shopping event with an exact duration of 48 hours. However, that was not always the case: the first Prime Day deals event was a 24-hour-long shopping event, then in 2017, it stretched to a 30-hour one. 2018 again had a stretch as it grew in popularity and that year, Prime Day lasted 36 hours.

In the last couple of years, Prime Day lasted exactly 48 hours, and it seems the same scenario will unfold in 2021. We have no reason to believe it could be longer than that, but the future can never be predicted for sure. Who knows, maybe in future years the duration of Prime Day deals can grow even further? No, let's keep it real: most likely, it will stay at the 48-hour mark.

What are the best Amazon Prime Day deals?


First off, we expect to see the biggest discounts on Amazon products: Amazon Kindle, Fire tablets, Amazon Echo speakers. What's more, Amazon usually offers discounts on Samsung Galaxy phones, Google Pixel phones, Apple AirPods, smartwatches by Apple, Samsung, Garmin, and Fitbit.

Additionally, mid-range phones by Motorola, Sony, LG were also generously discounted over the two-day event last year. As far as iPhones are concerned, you can find refurbished units with big discounts among the iPhones deals on Prime Day, as we saw last year. Although they are not new iPhones, they have been renewed to look and work like brand new.

OnePlus phones will also see a generous discount during the big shopping event. The OnePlus 8 should be discounted by almost half of its price for Prime Day.

Let's look at an example of what you can expect to see: in 2020, the Galaxy Note 20 (fresh out of the oven at the time) got a huge $200 discount, and so did the Galaxy S20+. In the tablet market, discounts were ranging between $50 and $180 for Samsung Galaxy Tab S6, while the iPad Mini and the iPad Pro saw discounts of around $50.

In the AirPods Prime Day deals department, you could save $50 on true wireless earbuds such as the AirPods Pro and the AirPods second-gen. The same applied to Galaxy Buds+ last year. As far as Apple Watch Prime Day deals are concerned, prices were down by around $30-$50. We had the same situation with Galaxy Watches, while some models from Garmin saw a bigger, $100 discount, reminding us of Black Friday.

Prime Day offers generous deals on products from small and medium-sized businesses; however, we saw pretty much everything discounted on Amazon Prime Day. Whether it is a phone, a tablet, wireless headphones, or a smartwatch that you are interested in buying, Amazon Prime Day will most likely have it discounted for you. The same applies to laptop deals, TV deals, camera deals, and Bluetooth speakers.

Should you wait for Black Friday?


It's typical for Black Friday to bring more deals and greater discounts compared to Amazon Prime Day. There’s more competition between retailers, and customers are more willing to spend during the holiday shopping season. But then again, Black Friday is still half a year away, which makes Prime Day 2021 an excellent opportunity to get a new phone, tablet, computer, or accessory at a bargain price. 

Do I need Amazon Prime to shop on Prime Day?


In order to benefit from the Amazon Prime Day discount, you do need an Amazon Prime membership. If you don’t have one, you can get a free 30-day trial just in time for Amazon Prime. The Amazon Prime membership assures fast delivery and a great shopping experience, so if you’re planning to be a long-term Amazon customer, it’s great to get yourself the Amazon Prime membership.

What is Amazon Prime membership?


Amazon Prime is a paid membership subscription that gives you quite a lot of perks if you shop from Amazon often. Members of the service benefit from the big Amazon Prime Day two-day sale. But it’s not only Prime Day: Amazon Prime members also have shipping benefits, such as free two-day delivery and free same-day delivery in select areas, streaming benefits, reading benefits, and other shopping perks.
