Amazon Prime Day 2021: When is it and how to get the best deals

(Image credit: Future)

Amazon Prime Day was an eventful one last year. For a while there was uncertainty around whether the event would actually happen, especially when its usual mid-July date came and went, with no sign of or word from Amazon. 

But eventually the retail giant revealed its plans to run the 48-hour online shopping bonanza on 13-14 October, and, with over a million deals globally on offer, Prime Day did not disappoint deal hunters. Among the best offers were Amazon devices and top tech, which included impressive discounts on the then newly released M1 MacBook Pro and MacBook Air. 

In this article we're going to have a guess at when Prime Day 2021 might happen, and take a look at some top Amazon deals available now. Be sure to bookmark this page for updates on Amazon Prime Day 2021, plus all the best offers as they arrive.

Amazon Prime Day 2021: When is it?

Amazon Prime Day 2021 dates have yet to be officially announced just yet, but based on previous years we can make an educated guess. If this year's event follows suit of every other bar 2020, we can probably expect it to fall on Monday 12 July and Tuesday 13 July. 

That said, if the coronavirus pandemic continues to impact the world the way it currently is, there is every chance Amazon will push this back to later in the year like it did in 2020. Amazon tends to announce the official Prime Day dates around two weeks before the event takes place, so if our prediction is correct, we'd expect to hear something from the retail giant themselves by the end of June 2021.
