Amazon Prime Day 2021: date, deals, news and expectations
Amazon Prime Day 2021 seems far away right now; however, it's never too early to start preparing for a massive shopping event like the next Prime Day.

Amazon 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, Fire tablets, and Echo speakers. The only catch: you have to be an Amazon Prime member.

We still don't know the exact Amazon Prime Day 2021 date, but we'll keep this article updated with news and information around Amazon's big shopping event. Here's what we know so far and expect to see on the next Prime Day.

Although Amazon Prime Day 2020 was delayed to October, in previous years, the big shopping event was held during the summer. In 2019, it was on July 15 and 16, respectively Monday and Tuesday. Usually, two weeks before the event its date is officially announced by Amazon, so around June 28, so the official Prime Day 2021 date may be announced on or around June 28.

On Amazon Prime, the biggest discounts are usually on Amazon products: Amazon Kindle, Fire tablets, Amazon Echo speakers, and others. What's more, Amazon usually offers great discounts on Samsung Galaxy phones, Google Pixel phones, Apple AirPods, smartwatches by Apple, Samsung, Garmin, and Fitbit.
