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, the biggest discounts are 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 get some discounts. 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.
In the AirPods Prime Day deals
department, you can save around $50 or more on true wireless earbuds such as the AirPods Pro and the AirPods second-gen. The same applies to Galaxy Buds+ last year. As far as Apple Watch Prime Day deals
are concerned, prices were down by around $30-$50 last year. 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, pretty much everything is somewhat 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.
