Stop twiddling your thumbs waiting for July to experience Amazon Prime Day 2021— it’s coming a whole month early. Yes, you heard that right, Amazon Prime Day is closer than you think. The new shopping extravaganza is going down Monday, June 21st at 12 a.m. PDT through Tuesday, June 22nd at 11:59 p.m. PDT, so you better be ready.

Year after year, Prime Day proves to be a bigger and better sale extravaganza than the year before. In fact, even in the middle of the pandemic, 2020’s Prime Day sales reached an estimated $10.4 billion USD worldwide, making it the most successful shopping occasion in Amazon history (according to Statista). So it is easy to say that we have some huge deal expectations for this year’s Amazon sale.

Expect Pre-Prime Day Deals Leading up to Amazon Prime Day 2021

As you know, Amazon likes to keep their best sale event as hush-hush as possible. What we know for certain is the timing of the sale: June 21st through June 22nd. You can expect thousands of hot deals in every category, from fashion to home goods to tech, as well as pre-Prime Day deals and early sales to whet your shopping appetite. Last year, Amazon’s early Prime Day deals included 33% off select smart TVs plus opportunities to earn $10 toward Prime Day shopping.

A quick look at past sales shows that the best Prime Day deals have been on Amazon-branded goods, such as the latest Echo and Fire TV models and Amazon’s line of household goods.

3 Saving Hacks To Make You a Prime Day Pro

It’s time to gear up for the massive amount of sales and deals coming your way. Overwhelmed by the millions of deals going on simultaneously? We’ve got your back. These three hacks will turn you into a Prime Day shopping rock star:

  1. Start With Slickdeals: Use Slickdeals for Amazon Prime Day 2021 to save time by only seeing the deals that are worth your money. Keep your eye on the Slickdeals Prime Day page, as well as the forums. Our 12M+ Slickdeals users are also quick to find hidden deals and price mistakes, like the notorious 2019 Prime Day moment when the $12,000 Sony DSLR lens was mispriced for under $100.

  2. Make Your List Early: Prime Day is a great time to stock up on gifts on a budget. Make a list of upcoming birthdays and holiday wish lists so you know which deals to focus on. Set Deal Alerts for items on your shopping list, so you’ll know when to snag the best discounts during the sale. Deal Alerts can be set for specific items — i.e., a Blink Mini Indoor Security Camera, or you can set an alert to receive discount news on general categories, like kids’ toys.

  3. Study Past Sales: Want to know a secret? Prime Day sales follow similar patterns each year. You won’t find the exact same deals as last year, but by reading through 2020’s best Prime Day deals, you can get some insight as to what to expect for 2021.
