The biggest annual sale for Amazon is on Prime Day, and for the second consecutive year, it won’t happen in July. Last year, Prime Day was moved to October due to the pandemic. However, this year it was moved higher, due to Amazon’s financial reasons. He wants the numbers of the Prime Day show up on its second quarter earnings, typically the slowest quarter, so it’s now June.
Amazon Prime Day is once again a two-day event, taking place on June 21st and 22nd. Although the Prime Day offers have already started.
With Amazon Prime Day coming very soon, here’s everything you need to know before the big day.
When does Prime Day take place?
Amazon has now officially confirmed that Prime Day will take place from 21 to 22 June 2021, making it a 48-hour shopping vacation, similar to the last two years. It will probably stay two days for the foreseeable future as well, officially. But Prime Day sales usually last a little over two days.
Along with the Prime Day announcement, Amazon has also kicked off a series of Prime Day deals. Allowing you to save a lot on different products and services right now.
What Prime Day offers are already available?
There are a number of Prime Day offers that are already available and you can check them all out here.
You can buy a new Fire TV starting at $ 99. With the 50 ″ Toshiba 4K Fire TV that costs $ 309.99. Which is really an amazing deal actually.
Also available right now are some great deals on Fire TV devices and Echo devices. Like the Echo (4th generation) it retails for $ 79. While the Echo Dot (4th generation) retails for $ 39.99 and the Echo Dot with clock (4th generation) is for $ 44.99. Among many other offers.
There will also be more Prime Day deals going on as we get closer to Prime Day, in a few weeks.
What offers can we expect to see?
Amazon hasn’t announced the Prime Day offer list yet, but we can expect to see offers on all product categories sold on Amazon’s website.
We’ll also see some hefty discounts on Amazon’s hardware. Including Fire TV, Fire tablet, Echo, Ring, Blink smart speakers, and more. We may even see some discounts on Amazon’s new products announced on September 24th.
Based on the deals we’ve seen in previous years for Prime Day, we might also see some hefty discounts on Instant Pots, DNA kits, smartphones, smart TVs, and many other products. Instant Pots is always the big seller for Amazon on these big shopping days, so if you’re looking to grab one, this might be the best time to do it.
Robot vacuums like Roborock, iRobot, Neato and others will also discount their products.
Amazon will offer extended trials for its services like Music Unlimited and Audible. In previous years, we’ve seen Amazon offer four months of Music Unlimited for just $ 0.99.
Do I just have to wait for Black Friday?
During Black Friday, you will undoubtedly find the best offers. If it’s something you need right away, your best bet is to buy on Prime Day. But if it’s just something you want, but don’t need it right away, then there’s nothing wrong with waiting until Black Friday. Where there are still about five months left, it’s hard to gauge whether things will be cheaper on Black Friday than on Prime Day. In all honesty, the prices are likely to be nearly the same.
Especially since we don’t know the prices for Black Friday yet and can’t make a good guess yet.
However, Black Friday will have more offers at other retailers. So, if you’re not determined to buy from Amazon, then Black Friday might be the best time to shop. Although many retailers like to compete with Amazon on Prime Day.
Do I need to be a Prime member to take advantage of these offers?
Prime Day was created as a way to increase Prime memberships. So yes, you will need to be a Prime member to take advantage of these offers. And there’s a 30-day free trial you can sign up for – or six months if you’re a student – and take advantage of Prime Day.
Sellers will also discount products that are not officially part of Prime Day. So the answer is yes and no. Take advantage of There Prime Day offers, you will need to be a Prime member. But not all Prime Day offers are limited to Prime members.
