Amazon Prime Day 2021: The Dates and Deals You Need to Know
Get ready for some serious summer savings—Prime Day 2021 will feature 2 million deals on Amazon’s hottest products.
Amazon is already known for its low prices, but the best deals of the year come on Prime Day, when the site drops prices on big-ticket items and offers unbeatable deals you won’t find anywhere else. In 2020, Prime members saved a whopping $1.4 billion during Prime Day, and with the economy kicking it into high gear, it’ll come as no surprise if shoppers take advantage of even more deals this time around. Read on to find out all of the key details about Prime Day 2021, so you’ll be ready to shop.
When is Prime Day 2021?
Prime Day 2021 will start at 12 AM Pacific Daylight Time (PDT) on Monday, June 21, and end at 11:59 PM PDT on Tuesday, June 22. If you feel like the last Prime Day just happened, you’re not imagining things. While Prime Day has traditionally taken place over the summer, it was delayed in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic and was held in October instead.
