When is Prime Day 2021?
This year, the Amazon Prime Day event actually spans more than one day — it spans two days. Prime Day 2021 will take place from June 21 to June 22, so we’ll get two full days of deals. We’re also expecting different deals on the two different days — so if you’re looking for a particular item and don’t see it on the first day, it’s worth checking back on the second day.
What is Prime Day
Amazon Prime Day is Amazon’s massive annual shopping event. This year, the event spans two days, and will bring with it some of the best deals of the year. Those deals include Amazon’s own products, but also include third-party products. We’re expecting thousands of deals during Prime Day 2021.
What smart home deals are expected on Prime Day 2021?
Smart home devices are now commonplace, and as such, we’re expecting a huge range of smart home devices to get heavy discounts for Prime Day 2021, across all smart home ecosystems.
For starters, there will likely be discounts on a ton of HomeKit devices. All kinds of great HomeKit devices have been released over the past few years, including devices like the Logitech Circle View Doorbell, Level Lock, and so on. These devices integrate with your other Apple products and let you control them in the Apple Home app.
Google Assistant devices will almost certainly get some great discounts too. Devices like the Google Wi-Fi routers, Philips Hue bulbs (which also work with HomeKit and Alexa), and more, will get steep discounts.
Of course, given that this is an Amazon event, you can expect to get some huge discounts on Alexa-compatible products. For starters, we expect serious discounts on Amazon Echo speakers. But we’ll likely also get deals on products like the Ecobee4 Smart Thermostat, Ring Video Doorbell, and the Wemo Wi-Fi smart plug.
Do I need Amazon Prime for Prime Day?
Yes, you need Amazon Prime to take advantage of Prime Day deals. If you don’t have Amazon Prime, you can get a 30-day trial and get the deals that way. Alternatively, you can simply sign up for a subscription. Some will get discounts for Prime too — for example, students can get Prime for 50% off. There are other great deals for Prime members too — for example, Prime members can currently get channels like Starz and Showtime for $0.99 for two months.
How do I prepare for Prime Day?
If you want to prepare for Prime Day, it’s probably a good idea to make sure that you have an Amazon Prime subscription.
