Amazon Prime Day 2021 is just days away, and that means one thing – it's time to get primed (sorry). This year's edition of Amazon's biggest annual sale event will take place on Monday 21 June and Tuesday 22 June. You can expect two days of brilliant bargains, from laptops to Lego, and pretty much everything in between.
To get the best Prime Day 2021 deals, you'll need to be an Amazon Prime member. Fortunately, that doesn't have to cost you anything. With a 30-day free trial, you can sign up to Amazon Prime and cancel at any time without payment being taken.

What to expect from Amazon Prime Day 2021
Amazon Prime Day is Amazon's biggest annual sale. It's usually a summer event, although Prime Day 2020 was put back to October due to the Covid-19 pandemic. This year's hotly awaited event is back to a summer slot, taking place over 21-22 June.
As Amazon sells such a wide variety of products, you can expect to find a huge range of discounts during Amazon Prime Day. In the past, we've seen offers on everything from iPads and phones to mattresses, furniture, shoes and colouring pencils. We're expecting a range of good deals this year as part of Prime Day. And you'll find a roundup of all the best deals right here.
Customers will particularly be looking for discounts on Apple devices (see our guide to Apple Prime Day deals). As well as that, Amazon will almost certainly push its own products and Alexa-compatible products.
