Lifewire - Amazon Prime Day 2021

Chloe Jeong / Lifewire

As Amazon Prime Day has come and gone, we’ve stopped updating this post with sales and can’t promise the ones below are still available. Check back later this year for updated deals.

The final day of Amazon Prime Day is upon us, and there's a big bounty of sales happening. Amazon's slashed prices on a bunch of its in-house smart home tech, and the biggest manufacturers are getting into the game as well, including Apple and Samsung.

Make sure you have a Prime membership (sign up for a free 30-day membership here) to see the deals and shop. Don't want to manage another membership? Bed, Bath & Beyond, Walmart and Samsung are all hosting competing sales, so be sure to check those out.

What is Prime Day?

Prime Day is an annual sales event held by Amazon and its retail affiliates like Samsung and Apple that lasts for just 24 hours. Prime Day is responsible for some of the largest discounts on must-have tech. All of Amazon's proprietary tech like the Echo line of automation hubs and Kindle E-readers, but you can expect to see sales on everything from laptops to wearables.

When is Prime Day 2021?

Amazon Prime Day starts Monday, June 21 and ends on Tuesday, June 22, 2021. Sales begin at 12 AM PDT on June 21, and end at 11:59 PM PDT on June 22.

For those that already have an Alexa-enabled device in their homes, you can remain up to date by simply asking Alexa to "keep me posted on Prime Day".

What's on Sale for Prime Day?

We're likely to see deep discounts on a ton of Amazon's first-party products like Kindles and the Echo line of automation hubs. However, if last years deals (see below) are any indication, we'll also see some exciting sales on high-ticket items like laptops and wearables. For now, we've gathered the best deals you can get ahead of Prime Day.

What to Expect on Prime Day 2021?

Tech and electronics always make up a large part of the best Amazon Prime Day deals, primarily because the company has such a big footprint in the smart home and digital assistant markets.

Beyond all the sales on Amazon's own lineup of products, tons of other great tech stuff is also likely to be available on the cheap. Last year brought killer deals on some of the best tablets, best earbuds, and best smartwatches, and we'll likely see similar fare in 2021, as well as discounts on Bluetooth headsets and speakers. Apple products tend to see rare discounts on Prime Day, so if you've been holding off on picking up Cupertino's latest, it may be a good time to open your wallet.

It's also a good time to keep an eye on the competition. Best Buy and Walmart traditionally run sales to counterprogram against Prime Day, so it's worth stopping by their sites (or dropping by a brick and mortar outlet, if you're feeling bold) to see what's on offer.

Are There Deals at Other Retailers?

In an attempt to counterprogram against Amazon's massive deals bonanza, outlets like Walmart are launching their own sales events. The Walmart Big Save kicks off this month again and promises huge discounts, particularly when paired with their recently launched Walmart Plus program, which will net you free delivery and access to a bunch of member-specific sales. Target is also running a similar promotion, alongside a handful of other smaller retailers, to try to capture some of that Prime Day zeitgeist (and some of that Big Buying Energy).

While you're waiting for the deals zeppelin to alight on earth and grace us with all of its radiant sales, check out our roundups of some of the best tech on the planet (some of which will probably also feature in Prime Day sales).

What to Watch for on Prime Day?

While a lot of the best Amazon Prime Day deals are exactly what they appear to be (great discounts on flagship products), some of these sales really are too good to be true. Beware of sellers trying to offload a ton of cruft, product they've overstocked that's not selling because it's poorly made or doesn't do what it purports to. Pay attention to reviews (both on Amazon itself and on editorial sites like Lifewire) before you pull the trigger on any deal that you're unsure of.

It's also worth keeping abreast of tech news around new releases, as Prime Day is also an excuse for retailers and manufacturers to ditch stock of previous models of an item before the latest model launches. This isn't necessarily a bad thing and can result in some pretty spectacular price cuts on the previous iteration of a product, but if you're someone who prizes having the latest and greatest, educating yourself on when the next-gen is coming can save you some serious buyer's remorse.

Here are the best deals you can still shop for.
