When is Prime Day 2021?

Prime Day is happening right now. The Prime Day 2021 event actually takes place over two days — June 21 and June 22. That means you’ll have a little extra time to snag those deals before prices go back up.

What is Prime Day?

Prime Day is Amazon’s biggest shopping event of the year. On Prime Day, you’ll find deals on all kinds of different products. That’s especially true of Amazon’s own products, like the Amazon Echo — but third-party companies also offer their own deals during the event.

Do I need Amazon Prime for Prime Day?

Yes, you do. Prime Day deals will only be available to Amazon Prime subscribers. If you don’t have an Amazon Prime subscription, you can get a 30-day trial. Also, there are some Amazon Prime discounts available — 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.
