Amazon Prime Day Begins June 21: How To Get Offers Now – CNET

97 0


Amazon Prime Day officially runs June 21-22, but discounts started earlier this month. With other retailers like Target and Walmart announcing their own sales events, Prime members can take advantage of the few Amazon deals currently available.

The streaming platform Twitch, which Amazon acquired in 2014, will be in the spotlight this year during Prime Day. Offers in the Twitch Merch Shop have already been published and Amazon continues to offer members a 50% discount on their first Twitch channel subscription.

There are several ways to save. Take a look at our quick guide How to win on Prime Day for the best preparations. On the Amazon homepage, members can use the Lightning Deals, which are available for a limited time window. There are also small business promotions – $ 10 credit for spending $ 10 on small business products starting June 7th.

If you have an Alexa powered gadget, you can get some exclusive offers by using your order to place the order. Amazon’s other devices – Echo speakers and displays, Fire TV streamers, Eero mesh routers, and so on – will also have big discounts, many of which will rival (or even beat?) Black Friday. We made some predictions for Prime Day pricing for Amazon devices, so be sure to stop by if you are planning on making a purchase. Waiting can definitely be worth it.

What about offers now? The Fitbit Sense was recently dropped to its lowest price ever – $ 240 – and the Roku Ultra 2020 4K UHD streamer was on sale for $ 69, which is the lowest price we’ve ever seen (during Black Friday 2020).

We expect the best prices of the year (or close to) for things like Sony WH-1000XM4 headphones, Apple iPads and AirPods, Fitbit fitness bands, Instant Pot stoves, TVs, exercise equipment, and more. With a little planning ahead, you can save even more. Below are some tips on how to save money on Prime Day. And be sure to stop by Amazon’s own Prime Day page for updates.

When is Amazon Prime Day 2021?

Isn’t it time to call it “Prime Days”? Because for years it has not been just a single day. It’s another 48-hour event that goes like this.

  • Prime Day begins on Monday, June 21st at 12:01 a.m. PT (3:01 a.m. ET).
  • Prime Day ends on Tuesday June 22nd June at 11:59 p.m. PT (Wednesday, June 23 at 2:59 p.m. ET) – but some deals often extend a few hours into the next morning, if not longer.

A number of early discounts in the run-up to the main event are already available.

What will be on sale during Amazon Prime Day 2021?

As always, anything and everything. But this is definitely the time of year to look for deep discounts on Amazon gear, including:

Granted, this stuff sells all the time – a recent Mother’s Day sale resulted in savings that rival Prime Day on many of these devices – but the absolute lowest prices are usually reserved for Prime Day and Black Friday.

We also usually see better than usual deals on things like Instant Pots, Apple AirPods, Bose headphones, and Roku streamers. Make no mistake: this might be Amazon’s party, but plenty of other stores and sellers will join in.

What other stores are participating in Prime Day 2021?

This may be an Amazon event, but that won’t stop other stores from taking part in the promotion. Walmart has already announced a Deals for Days event, which will take place June 21-23. Likewise, Target’s recently announced Deals Day event will take place June 20-22. Expect Best Buy, Kohl’s, and other stores to do large sales of their own. Best Buy, for example, is likely to compete heavily on TV deals. We will update this as more events are announced.

What are the best offers so far?

As we get closer to the main event, there will be plenty of Prime Day deals to prepare for. Right now these are the best things we could find.

Amazon and its partners will be making a ton of announcements over the next two weeks.

Which Amazon Prime Day offers can I get right now?

At a certain point, an “Early Prime Day Deal” becomes a semantic question. Amazon, for example, is offering its discounted Fire TV models as early Prime Day deals – but trust me when I say they have all-day deals every day. You can check out my Cheapskate page for the latest and greatest information, sign up for the Cheapskate newsletter (see the “Sign Me Up” box below), send deal texts straight to your phone, and so on.

You can also follow me on Facebook and Twitter. And check out Amazon’s Daily Deals page, where the retailer markets its limited-time and semi-permanent deals. Spoiler alert: the quality of the deal varies greatly from day to day.

What is the Amazon Prime Day concert?

This year, Amazon is using some new tricks to promote the huge event. The retail giant has announced a three-part concert series called The Prime Day Show, with performances by Kid Cudi, HER and Billie Eilish. Each concert is expected to have its own unique theme and the livestream will begin on Thursday June 17th. If you can’t tune in on the day it is posted, the streams will be available for 30 days.
