Amazon Prime Day 2021: When is it and what’s on sale?

It’s that time of the year again–no, not Black Friday, time isn’t that much of an illusion yet. It’s about time for Amazon Prime Day 2021! If you’re wondering what’s on sale and when Prime Day starts, check out the below.

When is Prime Day 2021?

Normally, Amazon has its Prime Day celebration in July, with enough advance warning for consumers to prepare their wallets, and for retailers to prepare their counter-sales.

However, last year, Amazon delayed Prime Day to October due to the pandemic, so many were wondering if the same would happen this year. According to Recode sources, the corporation is aiming for Prime Day to be in June this year, but there’s no solid confirmation yet.

What are the Amazon Prime Day Deals of 2021?

Right now, without a concrete date on Prime Day 2021, we don’t have any details on what will be on sale. However, make sure to bookmark this page, as we’ll be updating it regularly as we know more!

But, we can expect there to be plenty of deep discounts on gaming hardware and software, TVs, all sorts of tech, and more! Let’s take a look at the highlights of Prime Day 2020.

Prime Day Amazon Device Deals

You know that with any Prime Day, there will be some incredible deals on Amazon devices. Last year, there were deep discounts on the Amazon Echo, Fire HD tablets, and basically everything Amazon-branded under the sun.

For Prime Day 2021, we expect all of these items to be on sale again. We might also see something involving Amazon Luna, you never know!

Prime Day Nintendo Switch Deals

Of all of the big consoles, the Switch is most likely to get discounts during Prime Day 2021. While I wouldn’t expect a direct discount, there’s likely to be some good bundle deals to take advantage of… and they’re probably going to fly out of stock quick.

Last year, there was also a deal on Nintendo Switch Online Family Memberships last year! Hopefully, we’ll see that again this year.

Prime Day PlayStation Deals

PlayStation 5

Given that PlayStation 5 stock is still practically non-existent, it’s unlikely we’ll see any actual discounts on PS5 consoles for Prime Day 2021. That said, it’s quite possible for Amazon to hold stock specifically for Prime Day. Keep an eye out!

That said, there are sure to be deals on PS5 games, and deeper discounts on PS4 games and consoles as Amazon attempts to reduce stock. Prime Day 2021 will likely be a great time for collectors to stock up on last-gen stuff!

Prime Day Xbox Deals

Like the PS5, it seems pretty unlikely there will be any deals on Xbox Series X or S consoles. While Microsoft’s stock situation seems better for the new generation of consoles, there probably won’t be much incentive to actually discount the console at this time. There might be extra stock reserved for Prime Day 2021, though.

But, you can be sure to see nice discounts on Xbox One consoles, bundles, and games. With almost complete backwards compatibility on Xbox Series consoles, you know whatever you get will be ready for whenever you get the new console.

There may also be a deal on Game Pass! There wasn’t last year to my knowledge, but you never know.

Prime Day PC and Laptop Deals

Prime Day 2020 was great for various PC parts. I know I saved a lot on a new motherboard last year and some RAM from Newegg! You can be sure that there will be more PC deals for Prime Day 2021.

Even better, though, might have been the laptop deals. Last year there was an incredible discount on the Razer Blade 15, which is not… a razor blade, but a high-end gaming laptop. There were great discounts on productivity laptops too. We can only hope these deals get repeated (or are even better) for this year’s Prime Day.

Prime Day TV Deals

Honestly, it’s not a big sales event like this if there aren’t TV deals. Last year, we saw deals on Toshiba Fire TV, high-end LG sets, and everything in between. You know for a fact there will be a ton of great TV deals for Prime Day 2021 too! 

But, you know when it comes to TVs you need to make sure you get a good set, and that isn’t always the set on the deepest discount. Check back here and we’ll find the best of the best TV deals.

What is Amazon Prime Day?

Amazon Prime Day is an actually two-day event, where Amazon discounts 1,000s of items. Between Lightning Deals, Daily Deals, and flat discounts, there are more than enough items for anyone to spend money on.

Make sure to bookmark this post! We’ll be rounding up the best of the best deals during the event so that you don’t need to sift through everything yourself.

Is Amazon Prime Day only for Prime members?

Yes, Prime Day is only available to Amazon Prime members, although a lot of competing retailers will make it a selling point that they don’t require a membership to participate.

But, if you haven’t signed up for Prime before, you can head to the Prime landing page in the US or UK to sign up for a free 30-day trial. Then, you can take advantage of all of the available deals.

What stores are holding Prime Day-style sales?

Most retailers know that launching competing sales during Prime Day is a good idea. If people don’t have Prime, or if they have a better price on an item people want, that’s money in their pockets, after all.

Best Buy, Walmart, and Target normally have their own sales on Prime Day in the US, and Tseo, Currys PC World, and Smyths hold sales in the UK.

Is Amazon Prime Day free?

Since Prime Day does require a subscription to Amazon Prime, it’s not precisely free. However, if you’re already a Prime member, there are no additional costs to incur.

That’s all the info we have right now! You can keep this page bookmarked and give us a follow on Jelly Deals so you’re the first to know about all the latest Amazon Prime Day 2021 news.
