Amazon dropped some big news, and it’s what we’ve been waiting almost a year to hear. The online retailer confirmed Amazon Prime Day 2021 will once again be a two-day sale event, and it’s coming up soon! Get out those calendars and circle June 21 and June 22 as Amazon Prime Days, and get ready to shop and save.
This year’s Amazon Prime Day event is the earliest we’ve seen scheduled — usually it happens sometime in July. This is a welcome change after last year’s Prime Day got delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
What can you expect to find the best savings on during the two-day Amazon Prime Day sale? We’ve got a rundown on what Amazon has confirmed, as well as our best guesses on what must-have items will have the best deals.
Here’s what you need to know about Amazon Prime Day 2021.
When Is Amazon Prime Day 2021?
Amazon Prime Day 2021 kicks off at midnight PDT on June 21 and runs through June 22. The event is open to Prime members in the U.S., the U.K., United Arab Emirates, Turkey, Spain, Singapore, Saudi Arabia, Portugal, Netherlands, Mexico, Luxembourg, Japan, Italy, Germany, France, China, Brazil, Belgium, Austria and Australia.
How Many Items Will Be Discounted During Amazon Prime Day 2021?
According to Amazon’s official announcement, “more than 2 million deals” will be available globally for its Prime customers.
“The two-day shopping extravaganza will offer Prime members over 2 million deals across every category, including fashion, electronics, toys, home décor, automotive, and more. Plus, early deals and promotions are already underway,” the announcement said.
What Will The Best Deals Be During Amazon Prime Day 2021?
Amazon didn’t give any information on specific items that will be included in its Prime Day deals. However, we’ve drawn on items that were popular sellers past Prime Day sales to determine what’s likely to be discounted come Prime Day.
HD TVs are often on sale during Prime Day. If you’re looking something right now, this Insignia 24-inch HD Smart Fire TV has Amazon Fire services built-in, which includes a voice remote with Alexa functionality, streaming service accessibility for programming, apps, games and more. It has a 720p resolution for a clear picture at a great price: It retails for $169.99, and the current Prime Exclusive Deal is $99.99, a 41% discount.
The Instant Pot was uber-popular in multiple countries two years in a row, so odds are it will be on sale this year, too. In 2018, some Instant Pots were on sale for 41% off and sold out early, so Amazon ended up discounting a different multi-cooker instead.
If you want to jump on the savings early, take a took at the Instant Pot Duo Plus 6 Quart 9-in-1 Pressure Cooker. It’s on sale right now for $99.99 (marked down from $119.99) and you can get an early Prime Day Deal of a $10 credit when you buy $40 or more on select Amazon Gift Cards.
Been wanting an air fryer but waiting for a good deal? Amazon Prime Day 2021 may be a good time to finally take the leap. This handy kitchen appliance’s popularity rivals the Instant Pot, so we’re betting Amazon slashes prices on a few models. Right now, there’s an early Prime deal on the Ultrean 4.2-Quart Air Fryer. It’s marked down to $69.99 from the regular $99.99 retail price. This deal also includes the extra $10 if you purchase $40 or more on select Amazon gift cards.
Fitbit Fitness Trackers
In a previous years, Fitbit trackers, including the Fitbit Sense Advanced Smartwatch, were included in Amazon Prime Day deals. Keep an eye out for this watch or other fitness tracking products to be part of an Amazon Prime Day deal this year, too.
Spend $10, Get $10 Deals From Small Businesses
Amazon will highlight products from small businesses this year for Prime Day, too.
“To make it easy for customers to support small businesses this Prime Day, Amazon has curated collections to connect customers with small businesses at amazon.com/supportsmall,” Amazon announced. “Customers can shop across collections, including from Black-owned, woman-owned, and military family-owned small businesses.”
Amazon also has a Spend $10, Get $10 deal for Prime Day. From June 7 through June 20, Amazon will offer a $10 credit to use on Prime Day to members who spend $10 on select U.S.-based small business products and brands in Amazon’s store, including products from Amazon Handmade and Amazon Launchpad.
In addition to the Spend $10, Get $10 deal, Amazon will offer a special deal for Amazon Prime Rewards Visa Card or Amazon Prime Store Card customers: a 10% cash back promotional on all small business product purchases.
