Amazon’s annual exclusive sale is coming back for an even bigger celebration in 2021. Prime Day is the sale every Amazon Prime member should be looking forward to. With hundreds of ways to save and hundreds of dollars off famous items, shopping during Prime Day is also a smart way to win back the expense of Amazon Prime’s membership fee.

During past Prime Day sales, Amazon hasn’t skimped on its products in the least. We’ve seen items in just about every category go on sale, from home and kitchen appliances to clothes, furniture, toys, phones, laptops, and of course, just about every Amazon gadget there is. You name it, there’s probably been a Prime Day sale on it. And if the sales of previous years are to be any indicator, Prime Day 2021 is already slated to be one of the best shopping events of the year.

Top 2021 Prime day offers & sales

As it stands, Amazon has not revealed any official early Prime Day offers, but won’t deter other companies from serving up early discounts and sales. We can pretty much guarantee that all of Amazon’s devices, including the Echo, Echo Dot, Ring Video Doorbell, Blink cameras, Kindles, and more will all be on sale.

Based on the past few years, you can also expect things like DNA testing kits, Instant Pots, unlocked phones, and more to all be available at all-time low prices.

Until Prime Day starts, you’ll want to make sure you’re an Amazon Prime member because otherwise, you won’t be able to take advantage of any of the discounted prices at Amazon during the case. Amazon Prime costs Rs.999 annually or you can pay on a monthly basis for Rs. 129 for 1-month and Rs. 329 for 3-months. There’s also a Prime Student discount that lets students sign up at 50 percent off the normal rate.

Starting a free 30-day trial of Amazon Prime right before Prime Day is also a good way to get in on the deals and try out Amazon Prime at no extra cost.

All Amazon’s Prime Day offers are only for Amazon Prime members! You can start a 30-day trial, free of charge, to access all offers and two-day delivery, and to access the Prime Video streaming services and more when you are not yet a member.

When is Prime Day 2021?

When Primary Day 2021 takes place, Amazon has not yet unveiled. Although the event of the last year was postponed to October, Prime Day is possibly to be back at its usual position in mid-July this year. This page will be updated with additional details.

When do Prime Day deals begin?

It’s not yet announced Prime Day 2021. But the event this year will possibly take place in the middle of July and there will be several Prime Day offers live on Saturday at 1:30 pm. Amazon also enjoys providing early prime day offers, so as summer months come close, you’ll want to keep an eye on this page.

Will Prime Day 2021 be delayed?

While Prime Day is likely to be delayed again, as in 2020, sales this year will probably take place in mid-July as normal. Prime Day has been Amazon’s way to prize Black Friday halfway through the year for more discounts, but Prime Day’s proximity to Black Friday doesn’t help shoppers the way it was originally meant. Moreover, Prime Day 2020 has been postponed because of uncertainties about delays in shipping and the critical items that must be shipped before any other item.

What deals should you expect on Prime Day 2021?

There’s no easy way to tell Amazon what’s going to be discounted before we get the official word from Amazon, but we have a few suggestions after all these years of coverage. It is almost a certainty that the whole Amazon equipment will be on sales, such as the Fire TV Sticks, echo speakers and screens, Kindle, ring gear, and more. Prime Day also brings record low prices for many of these appliances. These products are typically the best deals for Prime Day.

Beyond all the usual suspects, common electronics such as TCL Roku TVs and Sonos speakers, as well as Apple’s items such as iPad and Apple Watch, fittings, Instant Pot kitchen appliances, Keurig, and more are also being sold.

Shoppen or wait until Black Friday 2021? Shop Prime Day deals?

Prime Day 2020 was held just six weeks before Black Friday last year which gave some shoppers pause about whether to buy on Prime Day or wait for Black Friday. This year, we’re expecting the shopping activities to be even more spread out. Although it’s possible that Black Friday will feature some new offers, Prime Day notoriously will deliver deals that we don’t see again until Black Friday as well. You should expect Prime Day to give you an early shot at Black Friday savings and not think too much about whether prices will drop in a few months as they likely won’t drop much lower than we see on Prime Day in most instances.

What kind of prime day offers is going to be there?

Amazon will have a few different deal models going on Prime Day. There are a few different types of offers you can expect to see during the festival, including Gold Box deals, Lightning deals, Discount deals, and direct price drops. – of these is a little different, so here’s what you can expect from each type:

Gold Box Deals of the Day: These are Amazon’s regular offers, and usually for these, the company has plenty of stock to satisfy orders on it all day long. We have seen Gold Box deals sold out in the past, but it’s much less often that these sell out than the other forms of deals.

Lightning Deals: Like an actual bolt of lightning, these deals will come and go quickly. On an average day, Lightning deals appear to last for about six hours, but on Prime Day it’s possible that the most common deals will go in the blink of an eye. You can usually enter a waitlist if it sells out, but it won’t guarantee that you will eventually get the product.

Coupon Deals: Many sellers will be selling coupon codes as a way to help customers save on Prime Day, and these take a little more effort. Others will provide landing pages that automatically clip the coupon code for you, and others will require you to manually enter them during the checkout process. The few seconds of extra work can sometimes save you big, though.

Direct Price Drops: For an overwhelming majority of sales on Prime Day, you’ll visit the website and the price will only be reduced.

These price cuts span all of the categories that Amazon covers. If you’re in the market for kitchen appliances or knives or happen to need a new TV, computer, clothes, or even a new mattress, chances are it will be on sale during Prime Day.

What is Amazon Prime Day?

Underneath all the ads and marketing jargon you’ll read about Amazon Prime Day is a very big shopping festival that kicks off in the middle of July each year. It used to be a one-day affair, but Amazon has since extended that. In 2018 the company ran it for 36 hours, and in 2019 it extended to 48 hours. Amazon claims that Prime Day is bigger than Black Friday and Cyber Monday, and basing it off on what we saw last year, it is entirely possible that the company will pull it off again this year.

The shopping event is exclusive to members of Amazon’s Prime program, which provides free 2-day delivery on millions of items, access to Prime Content, photo storage, and much more. An Amazon Prime membership now costs Rs.999 a year, but you can get a free 30-day trial to get all the benefits without shelling out any cash. Yeah, that means that you’ll be able to shop all the Prime Day sales, get the free 2-day delivery, and all without paying anything for it. Bear in mind that after the 30 days Amazon will bill you for the year in full, so you’ll want to set a reminder to cancel if you don’t want to keep it.

Would other retailers be seeking Amazon Prime Day?

With certainty, we can say yes. Other retailers like Walmart, Target, Best Buy, eBay, Newegg, and plenty of others will be joining in on the fun. Some will start promotions aimed specifically at competing with Prime Day offers, and some will simply match the deals and discounts from Amazon.

We’ve seen eBay go all-in on its own deals in years past, and with the state of things right now we wouldn’t be shocked to see more rivalry do the same.

What’s Amazon Prime Day’s history?

To help celebrate its 20th anniversary, Amazon kicked off Prime Day back in 2015. Since then, the organization has expanded the case, making it a little bigger each year. 2021 will mark the seventh anniversary of Prime Day as we know it. The festival began as a one-day promotion that had a random mix of items on sale and has grown into what was a 48-hour event last year that provided well over 1 million offers.

Beyond only discounting its own hardware, Amazon features discounts on famous products from Bose, Instant Pot, TCL, KitchenAid, and several other major brands. The growth hasn’t been perfect for Amazon, however. In 2019, the organization encountered almost two hours of downtime at the beginning of the event due to the additional traffic and in 2020, the entire event had to be postponed until October due to extenuating circumstances from the on-going pandemic.

How does Amazon Prime Day work?

Prime Day is not as easy as some other major shopping days, and that’s not such a bad thing. There are some things that you’ll want to keep in mind, particularly if you are looking for deals on specific items. In 2019, Amazon launched offers in batches every three hours while in 2020, some of the promotions were focused on six-hour blocks. It’s also left to be seen how the sale will be running throughout 2021.
