Amazon Prime Day is almost here and we’ve rounded up everything you need to know about the e-tailer’s biggest shopping day of the year.

When is Amazon Prime Day 2021?

Amazon has confirmed that Prime Day 2021 will take place over two days this month, on Monday, June 21 and Tuesday, June 22.

Traditionally taking place in July, Prime Day was moved to October last year as a result of the pandemic. Amazon launched Prime Day in 2015 as a one-day shopping event, with the e-tailer and its merchants slashing prices on thousands of items across the site. Prime Day has since expanded to include 48 hours of deals, with Amazon Prime members getting early access. Amazon says sales from Prime Day often surpass Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales combined, and last year’s event had more than one million deals available to Prime members online.

Amazon typically discounts its family of Alexa-enabled devices and smart home accessories during Prime Day. Last year’s best-sellers included the Echo Dot and the Fire TV Stick 4K, both of which were marked down in price (they’re both on sale right now too).
