Amazon Prime Day deals 2021
(Image credit: Future)

Amazon Prime Day is just around the corner, with Prime Day deals landing kicking off on June 21 and running through June 22 in 2021. That means it's nearly time for the annual 48 hour sales extravangaza to begin and we're already seeing early offers on a range of Amazon devices and brands. Amazon Prime Day has become synonymous with cheap smart home gear, but we're also expecting a massive range of Prime Day deals on laptops, 4K TVs, headphones, and more this year. To take part you will need a Prime membership, however those without a subscription are in luck - Amazon is offering a 30 day free trial right now

While Prime Day deals do touch on a wide range of products, we see the best offers on Amazon's own devices. That rings true for the early Prime Day deals already hitting the shelves this week. The Amazon Echo Dot and Amazon Echo are both available for record low prices right now, with discounts that we don't see being beaten during the main event. 

You do have to pick up two speakers to get this excellent offer, though, with a two-pack Echo Dot bundle available for $49.98 (was $99.98) and the main Echo sitting at $119.98 (was $199.98) for two. 

However, we're also seeing early Prime Day deals on devices that have only recently hit the market. The Echo Frames are seeing their first price cut, now down to $174.99 (was $249.99), meanwhile the latest generation Echo Buds are available for $79.99 (was $119.99). The fact that both of these devices are so new to the shelves, and have only just seen their biggest discounts ever, means we're unlikely to see them dropping their prices again once Amazon Prime Day 2021 fully kicks off next week. 

Of course, we're expecting this year's Prime Day deals to hit a wide range of tablets, laptops, TVs, headphones, smartwatches and more. However, the bigger brands are usually kept for sales much closer to the main event. While many of these hotter items will likely take extra price cuts when Amazon Prime Day does officially begin, there are still a range of non-Prime deals up for grabs; some of which may not be beaten next week.

Amazon Prime 30 day free trial
Amazon is offering a free 30 day trial of Prime right now, so that everyone can get involved in the sales extravaganza. You will have access to all of this month's upcoming Prime Day deals as well as all the usual perks as well. Just be aware that this will auto-renew at $12.99 per month once your trial is up.

The best early Prime Day deals

Amazon has already kickstarted its early Prime Day deals, with a range of discounts on smart home devices and services, while also offering a range of ways to stack up some Amazon credit ahead of the big day. You can find all the Prime-only discounts on a dedicated Amazon store page as well.

Echo Auto: $49.99 $14.99 at Amazon
Save $35 -
This early Prime Day deal offers a massive 70% discount on the Amazon Echo Auto. Considering this is the lowest price we've ever seen on the car-friendly Alexa plug in, we don't expect it to drop any further for the official sales next week.

Save $21 -
Prime members interested in testing out Amazon's new cloud gaming service can grab the Luna controller for just $48.99. That's $1 lower than the $49.99 sales price from the last few months which means there may be a little more movement on this price when Prime Day deals do land.

Save $50 -
Amazon Prime members can get two 4th generation Echo Dots for the price of one when you apply code PDDOT2PACK at checkout. That means you're getting each speaker for just $24.99 - $4 less than the lowest price we've ever seen on this model. Considering this is a newer release, we wouldn't expect that price to be beaten next week.
View Deal

Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K | Luna Controller: $119.98 $73.98 at Amazon
Prime members can bundle up here, grabbing a 4K Fire TV Stick and the Luna Controller for just $73.98. Even with the early Prime Day deals sitting on both devices separately you're still getting an extra discount when you buy them both together. Right now these two items would cost you $88.98, but there's an extra $15 off here.
View Deal

All-new Echo Buds: $119.99 $79.99 at Amazon
Save $50 -
Amazon has the all-new Echo Buds on sale for $79.99 -  $20 less than the record-low price. Amazon's wireless earbuds feature active noise cancellation and work with Alexa to stream music, make calls, get directions, and more. Considering these are a fairly new release and haven't yet seen discounts of this quality, we expect this is going to be the best price we'll see for a while yet.

Insignia 24-inch 720p TV: $169.99 $99.99 at Amazon
At just $99.99, this Insignia TV is offering excellent value. Sure, you're only picking up a 720p resolution on a particularly small 24-inch display, but grabbing a smart TV with plenty of apps and Alexa compatibility for under $100 feels great.
View Deal

Save $75 -
Prime members can take advantage of the first ever price cut on the Echo Frames, now down to just $174.99. The smart glasses work with Amazon Alexa so you can make calls, listen to podcasts and control compatible smart home devices completely hands-free. We wouldn't recommend waiting on this one either, considering both that this is a new release and the first discount we've ever seen it would be particularly surprising if there was a cheaper price available next week.
View Deal

Toshiba 43-inch 4K UHD Fire TV: $349.99 $239.99 at Amazon
Save $110 -
Amazon currently has this Toshiba 43-inch HD TV on sale for just $239.99. You're getting smart capabilities with the Fire TV experience built in, and the Alexa remote allows you to adjust the volume, change the channel and browse for movies completely hands-free. Last year's Prime Day deals on Fire-enabled TVs didn't drop further below these early discounts, which means we're fairly confident these won't drop much further in the next week.
View Deal

Insignia 50-inch 4K UHD Smart Fire TV: $379.99 $299.99 at Amazon
Amazon is once again leading with early Prime Day deals on its Fire-enabled TVs. Last year we didn't see prices drop any further than these early offers, and stock quickly ran out once competition heated up. That means we'd recommend jumping on this excellent price sooner rather than later.

The best Amazon deals for non-Prime members

While there are a few early Prime Day deals available, there are plenty more Amazon offers flying around right now that don't need a Prime membership. While these aren't technically official Prime Day offers, you'll still find some excellent prices up for grabs.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild: $59.99 $39.99 at Amazon
Save $20 -
This $20 saving the Breath of the Wild only appears very rarely, and we haven't seen it beaten since 2019. We're more accustomed to a $47 price tag on this particular Switch gem, and considering it's easily one of the best in the catalogue we don't see that price falling any further for a while.
View Deal

Nintendo Switch Pro Controller: $69.99 $59 at Amazon
Save $10 -
The Nintendo Switch Pro Controller is back down to this fantastic $59 price tag at Amazon. That's $10 off its MSRP, and while we haven't quite seen this gamepad hit its launch price in the last few months you're still getting a great discount here if you'd prefer a more traditional gaming experience.
View Deal

View Deal

Apple AirPods 2019: $159 $128.98 at Amazon
Save $31 -
We regularly see this $30 discount on the 2019 AirPods, and it hasn't given way through all the major sales events its seen so far. That means we don't expect much of an improvement in this year's Prime Day deals, though stock does start to run thin with more eyes on the site.
View Deal

Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro: $199.99 $169.99 at Amazon
Save $30 -
Samsung only released the Buds Pro earlier this year, which is why this $30 discount is unlikely to be beaten in next week's full wave of Amazon Prime Day deals. We have seen this price once before, but the ANC true wireless earbuds have never dipped below $169.99 in their short time on the market so far.
View Deal

Beats Studio 3: $349.99 $199.99 at Amazon
Save $150 -
The Beats Studio 3 headphones have taken an excellent $150 price cut this week, dropping them all the way down to $199.99. That's a price we've only previously seen once and that was right at the start of the year - so you're getting a Black Friday-beating discount here. We don't expect these cups to drop any further next week, then, making them an excellent early purchase.
View Deal

iPad 8th generation (32GB): $329 $299 at Amazon
Save $30 -
Amazon currently has the latest 8th generation iPad available for its lowest price yet thanks to a $30 discount. This is a particularly popular offer but you'll find the Space Gray, Gold, and Silver models available here. While we may see an extra $10 or so off this base model, competition around Prime Day means that these are going to fly off the shelves, so it's worth bearing in mind if you don't think you'll be able to get to the offers early in the morning.
View Deal

Apple AirPods Max: $549 $499 at Amazon
Save $50 -
Apple rarely goes beyond a record price low too quickly after it's set, especially one higher end devices like the premium AirPods Max. If you're after some luxury cups, then, we'd take Amazon up on this offer before the Prime Day crowds loot all the stock, especially considering we don't expect the price to drop any further for the time being.

Amazon Prime Day deals FAQs

When is Amazon Prime Day?

Amazon Prime Day 2021 will take place on June 21 and 22. However, we're already seeing early Prime Day deals landing on the site, and we expect these offers to ramp up as we turn the corner to the big day as well. That means we'd keep an eye out for any discounts heading your way over the next couple of weeks. 

What is Amazon Prime Day?

Amazon Prime Day is fast becoming one of the bigger sales events of the year. The annual savings event offers up 48 hours of discounts on everything from the latest tech to homeware, fashion, personal care and garden furniture. However, these Prime Day deals are reserved for Prime members so you'll need to grab a Prime free trial before things kick off.

How do you prepare for Amazon Prime Day deals?

As Amazon Prime Day 2021 approaches, you'll want to get your homework underway. Whether you're hopeful for some big TV price drops or a new laptop, it's worth making sure you know exactly what you want to get from this year's Prime Day deals. 

That means going beyond the brand or model you are looking for, and taking note of the specs and features that are important to you. In the heat of the moment there's going to be a lot of prices and specs flying around, and to get the best Prime Day deals possible you'll need to know exactly what you're looking for. 

Plus, your first choice model may not even be discounted which means you'll also want to find out which features you're willing to sacrifice for a lower price and what you would be willing to spend above your budget if there was bags of extra value in a slightly higher cost. 

That also means doing a little research on what prices you can expect to see. Camelcamelcamel is a good starting place for finding out the record low price of your chosen items, as well as their Prime Day deals last year. Aim for a middle ground between these two costs, as factors like demand, launch dates and any releases since Prime Day last year may effect both prices.

Now that we're fully in the run up to Amazon Prime Day deals, you can also get some cash in the bank ready for some discounts. Amazon is again offering a $10 credit for Prime Day when you spend $10 on small business products, starting June 7. 

How do you find the best Prime Day deals?

The best Amazon Prime Day deals don't always make themselves immediately apparent. However, they do sell out fast so you'll need to go in with a game plan. Here's our top tips for bagging the best Prime Day deals for you. 

1. Find an Amazon Prime free trial...
Amazon Prime Day is technically reserved for Prime members only, however Amazon usually offers free trials in the lead up to the event to make sure it has as large a customer base as possible. If you're not already subscribed, you'll find free trials available up to three weeks in advance but be sure to time your membership to run over the Prime Day dates once we know them.

2. ... but don't rely on it
Last year we saw more retailers participating in Prime Day-esque sales in order to steal a little of Amazon's pie. We expect stores like Walmart and Best Buy will be running their own discounts over the same period this year, which means you'll want to be shopping around to find the best Prime Day deals possible - because some may not even be on Amazon at all.

3. Know what you want to buy...
If you're coming into Amazon Prime Day with your eyes on a prize, you're already in a fantastic position to scoop up a saving. Knowing what you want to buy means you can filter through to the exact product you're after without having to wade through the lightning deals, wasting time while doing so. Check the specs, features, and any design considerations you're after beforehand and, if possible, check out some options in-store so that you know exactly what you're looking for on the big day.

4. ... but stay flexible
That said, it's unwise to rest on the assumption that the particular TV or tablet you're after will be on sale. You can waste a lot of time trying to find any discounts on the particular model you're after if there are just no savings to be found - and you may be missing out on more valuable Prime Day deals in the process. It's great to go in with a brand and model in mind, but think about what you want to get out of it and be flexible with these specs and features for the best value possible. 

Similarly, you'll want to build some flexibility into your budget. While it's never a good idea to get caught up in the moment and break the bank, it's worth shopping around similarly specced models to see if you can't pick up far better value just by springing an extra $10 or $20. 

5. Get in there early...
When Prime Day itself rolls around, you'll want to be one of the first through the doors to give yourself the most time to find the best offers for you. High profile discounts on the year's hottest tech do run out quickly, so we wouldn't wait around too long if you do stumble across the perfect price. 

6. ... but check back throughout the event
Just because you've managed to secure your dream deal straight out the gate doesn't mean Amazon is done. New deals are released throughout the entire sales window, which means you may find a better option worth cancelling your original order for.

Amazon Prime Day vs Black Friday - should you wait?

Both Amazon Prime Day and Black Friday generally offer discounts on the same kinds of devices, but there are a few differences between the sales events that hold bearing over both the value on offer and the ease of actually getting the deals into your basket. 

Amazon Prime Day deals are largely focused on Amazon itself, with others like Best Buy and Walmart competing against them. Competition among shoppers is also significantly reduced on Prime Day, which all together means that deals are generally easier to find, easier to price check, and won't run out of stock so quickly. 

However, Black Friday is set across a much larger range of retailers, often with prices that manage to come in just a little cheaper and a wider variety of brands on sale. That does mean a lot more work to make sure you're getting the best offer possible, and keeping a close eye out for limited stock flash sales that make up for most of those lowest price records. However, with more competition between retailers we do tend to see slightly heavier discounts in November. 

Of course, you may also simply want your tech sooner. If so, we wouldn't recommend waiting too long for a discount. There's no guarantee that prices will be any different come Black Friday, and with such an increase in competition you're also less likely to come across the best deals before they're gone as well. 

What should you expect from Amazon Prime Day deals 2021?

Amazon Prime Day deals are a little easier to predict than other major sales events. For starters, we can safely assume that there will be some excellent prices on the latest Echo devices, Fire tablets and other Amazon-owned brands like Ring, Blink and Eufy. However, aside from these smart home devices there's likely to be plenty more of the year's top tech on sale as well. 

After an increase in demand brought on by the pandemic, Amazon struggled to fully stock its Prime Day laptop deals last year. However, we're expecting a wider range on the shelves in 2021, and while an earlier start may mean fewer 11th gen Intel processors on the market we're likely to see far more 10th gen models available for far lower prices this year. 

If you're in the market for a new display, Prime Day TV deals are some of the more competitive on the site so you'll need to get in fast. Indeed, we saw many of the best Prime Day deals run out of stock here last year, but we are expecting the Fire-enabled models and cheaper TLC and Hisense screens to make a comeback in 2021. 

Apple was a particularly strong category for Amazon Prime Day last year, and we're expecting to see more of the same in 2021. While the new 8th generation iPad, iPad Air 4 and M1 MacBooks were still in their infancy last year, we still saw a few discounts which was particularly promising considering these premium gadgets rarely take early price cuts. We've already seen lower prices than those offered by Prime Day last year, however, so expect some excellent deals in this arena - and potentially some even better iPad Pro offers as well. 

The best way to predict the best Amazon Prime Day deals for 2021 is to take a look at last year's offerings. You'll find all the biggest discounts that were available back then just below, so you can benchmark your expectations.

What happened in last year's Prime Day deals?

Last year, Prime Day was delayed until October 13-14, in an unprecedented move for the sixth annual shopping event. It made sense: consumers were facing an economic downtown over the summer, and the delay also gave Amazon time to deal with the huge increase in orders it had seen during lockdown.

Despite concerns around stock and shipping during the pandemic, Prime Day was even bigger than the year before, with an extra $3.24bn-worth of products sold globally.

Some $10.4 billion-worth of goods were sold in total, so what were people buying? Well, according to Amazon - and our data mirrors the findings - the best-selling products globally were (as usual) Amazon’s own devices: the Echo Dot and Fire Stick 4K. 

Other top sellers included the iRobot Roomba Robot Vacuum, LifeStraw Personal Water Filter, LEGO Star Wars Stormtrooper Helmet, Bose QuietComfort 35 II wireless headphones and Fitbit Versa 2 smartwatch. Robot vacuums, in particular, were hot products on our pages. 

The best Amazon Prime Day deals from last year

Amazon Echo Show 5: $89.99 $44.99 at Amazon

Last year's Amazon Prime Day laptop deals

From super cheap Windows laptops to powerful gaming rigs, there were a few laptop deals that could our eye over Amazon Prime Day last year. While the range of offers available wasn't as large as in recent years, likely due to demand driven up by the pandemic, you could still score a discount on a range of machines.

Lenovo IdeaPad S150 14-inch laptop: $331 $252 at Amazon

Last year's Amazon Prime Day audio deals

Last year's Amazon Prime Day deals brought a record low price on the AirPods Pro and some excellent discounts on Sony's leading headphones as well. Whether you were looking for true wireless earbuds or the biggest over-ear cups you could find, headphone deals were offering big savings. This year we've already seen new Samsung Galaxy Buds taking their first price drops and the AirPods Pro price has already dropped a further $10 when on sale, so we're looking forward to some even better offers in 2021. 

Samsung Galaxy Buds+: $149.99 $119.99 at Amazon

Sony WF-1000XM3 true wireless earbuds: $229.99 $178 at Amazon
We rated the Sony WF-1000XM3 true wireless earbuds highly last year, and though we had seen this $50 discount for a while now, it was an excellent price for the power you're getting in these noise cancelling buds.

AirPods Pro: $249 $199 at Amazon
Amazon had been battling it out with Verizon over the AirPods Pro price over the summer, but this $199 price tag was the lowest we've seen yet once Prime Day rolled around. A previous $219 sales price was holding fast until these Prime Day deals, but an extra $20 off makes this a stunning offer.

Sony WH-1000XM4 Wireless Headphones: $349 $298 at Amazon
These Sony cans are the best noise-cancelling headphones you can buy – and having only just launched ahead of Prime Day last year, this $51 discount is a real bargain. You could also grab a gift card at the same time if you were really speedy.

Last year's Amazon Prime Day tablet deals

Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite: $349.99 $249 at Amazon

The latest iPad Pro was seeing a $50 discount on the 12.9-inch, 128GB configuration. That's not a lot of storage considering the power you're getting under the hood, but if you're a keen iCloud user this is well worth a look.
