- Amazon Prime Day 2021 is a huge savings event with deals rivaling Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
- It takes place June 21 and 22, but there are several early deals available now.
Amazon Prime Day is less than a week away, but that isn’t stopping Amazon and other retailers from offering early deals ahead of June 21. If you’re shopping for grads or Father’s Day, these discounts are worth taking advantage of.
Below, we’ve rounded up some of the best deals available now in the run-up to Amazon Prime Day 2021. You can also find answers to frequently asked questions about the event.
Following previous years’ example, Amazon Prime Day will be a 48-hour event and it’ll land on June 21 and 22.
This Amazon Prime subscriber-only event is one of the many perks of a Prime membership.
However, as a rule of thumb, most deals available during Amazon Prime Day itself are probably better than early discounts we’re seeing now. If you can’t wait, or don’t think you’ll be able to camp out short-lived Lightning Deals during the sale, we’ve highlighted the best deals available above.
The deals we see during Amazon Prime Day usually rival discounts we see during Black Friday and Cyber Monday. For Amazon brands like Echo, Ring, Eero, Kindle, and Fire, it’ll be the best time of year to shop, with many products hitting all-time lows.
Be prepared to act fast, though: the best deals will generally be short-lived and limited in stock.
Amazon Prime Day has historically been one of the best times outside of Black Friday and Cyber Monday to shop for tech and home goods. We expect to see deals on Alexa smart speakers, Kindle E-readers, video doorbells, Instant Pots, vacuums, Bluetooth speakers, and laptops.
Though Prime Day is an Amazon deal holiday, other retailers turn up to offer discounts and match prices too. Walmart, Target, and Kohl’s are the few stores with confirmed sales during June 21 and 22, and we expect other stores to hold sales too.
These alternative options may be better to shop if you don’t have an Amazon Prime account, though first-timers can get their first 30 days free.
If you don’t have an Amazon Prime membership, you should sign up for a free 30-day trial to participate in Prime Day deals.
