Everything You Need to Know About Amazon Prime Day 2021

When is Amazon Prime Day 2021?

Despite the name, Prime Day is a 48-hour sale that will kick off on Monday, June 21 at 12:01 am PT and end on June 22 at 11:59 pm PT. While Prime Day usually takes place in mid-July, this year the company has elected June to host its sale extravaganza. Even last year, the company was forced to postpone Prime Day to October 13 & 14 in the US due to Covid-19 complications.

Who Can Participate?

You probably know this already. Only customers with Amazon Prime membership will be able to participate in this 48-hour sale. 

Not a Prime customer? Don’t worry. Amazon offers a 30-day free trial to Amazon Prime membership to first-time customers, so you won’t be missing out on this sale bonanza. For everyone else, Prime membership costs about $119/year or $13/month with special discounts for students, EBT, and Medicaid recipients.

Where will Prime Day be Celebrated?

Prime Day will be celebrated in multiple countries including the US, the UK, the UAE, Turkey, Spain, Singapore, Saudi Arabia, Portugal, Netherlands, Mexico, Luxembourg, Japan, Italy, Germany, France, China, Brazil, Belgium, Austria, and Australia. 

Sadly, Prime customers in India and Canada will be left out from this two-day event due to the ongoing Covid-19 situation.

What Will Be on Sale During Prime Day 2021?

A lot of things. This year, Amazon has promised over two million deals during this 48-hour sale. Everything from Amazon Echo devices to Apple products will be on sale. Beyond that, one can expect great deals on laptops, TVs, headphones, and smart home devices as well.

Amazon Prime Day Shopping Tips

While it’s easy to get carried away during such big sales, there are a few shopping tips that you should remember to get the most out of the Prime Day deals.

1. Prepare a Wishlist

While Prime Day 2021 will last for 48 hours, there’s no guarantee that all of the deals will too. Some of the lightning deals usually only last for a few hours or even minutes due to limited quantity. So be prepared with your wishlist beforehand to make the most of it.

That said, if you miss out on any of these deals, don’t lose heart. Other big retail giants like Walmart, Target, and Best Buy are also expected to match (or even undercut) some of the deals offered on Prime day. So make sure to check these websites as well. 

2. Check Price History

Sellers on Amazon are known to hike up prices right before such sale events to trick customers with fake price drops. Thus, check the price history of every product that you intend to buy with the websites CameCamelCamel or Shopbrain. You can also use the Camelizer extension for Chrome to quickly look up the price history of a product.

3. Watch Out for Fake Reviews

When buying products from lesser-known brands or sellers on Amazon, don’t be fooled by their over the moon ratings. Always double-check with sites like Fakespot to filter out fake reviews of a product or a seller on Amazon.

Bonus: Get Prime Day $10 Gift Card

Amazon is also offering $10 credit to spend on Prime Day if you spend $10 before June 20 on items sold by select small businesses. You can visit Amazon’s Support Small landing page and look for products list via category and region.
