All the best Amazon Prime Day deals 2021

Amazon Prime Day 2021 is here. The two-day savings extravaganza usually takes place in July but will be held in June this year. Now that the sale is underway you can find the best Amazon Prime Day deals just below.

For now, here’s everything else you need to know, plus any early offers currently live.

When is Amazon Prime Day 2021?

It’s been announced that the date for Amazon Prime Day 2021 is 21st – 22nd June.

This is much earlier than the usual July slot but also a lot earlier than last’s year event, which was delayed to October due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Interestingly, Recode‘s external sources speculated that holding the event in June could be an attempt to bring Amazon’s 2021 second quarterly earnings in line with its revenue from the same period in 2020, which grew by 40% due to lockdown. The Prime Day date announcement seems to confirm those speculations.

Prime Day Amazon Device deals

It wouldn’t be a Prime Day sale without some significant savings on Amazon devices. Do you really need another Echo or Alexa in your home? Probably not, but it’s hard to say no when they’re available at half their recommended price.

Prime Day Nintendo Switch deals

It’s hard to find decent Nintendo Switch deals at the moment, which means if you’re still waiting to get your hands on one, it’s likely you’ll be paying full price for the base model or the Switch Lite – which is why it’s worth waiting until Amazon Prime Day to get one.

There were some great Switch deals in last year’s Prime Day, where you could pick up a Nintendo Switch with either Animal Crossing or Mario Kart for £299.99, or a Switch Lite with Minecraft for just £199.99.

We’re expecting more of the same this year, and hopefully some even better deals given the release window for the Switch Pro model – an upgraded version of the console – is expected this year.

Prime Day PlayStation deals 

Given there’s still such high demand for the PS5, it’s unlikely we’ll see any console deals pop up in this year’s Prime Day sale, but it would be reasonable to expect some new stock to go live on one of the dates. That’s great news, as the PS5 is still completely sold out everywhere at the time of writing.

As for what else we can expect this year, it’s likely we’ll get some PS5 DualSense controller bundles, similar to what was on offer with PS4 controllers last year. While the PS5 console is sold out everywhere, Amazon still has plenty of PS5 accessories available. 

If we all get our rings of sincere prayer out, we might finally get a discount on the Demon’s Souls Remake for PS5, too. It’s still 60 quid from most retailers, which, let’s be honest, nearly six months after its release is still very expensive. 

And if you simply can’t wait to get your hands on a PS5, you can keep up with stock updates in advance of Prime Day by following us on Twitter. Make sure you check out the PS5 section of the Jelly Deals site too, where we’ve recently covered some amazing deals on headsets and how to save loads of money on your PS Plus subscriptions

Prime Day Xbox deals 

Now that the Xbox Series X is out, it would be reasonable to expect some great deals on Microsoft’s other Xbox consoles, such as the Xbox Series S and the Xbox One console variants. Given how impressive the Game Pass line-up is, there are still plenty of reasons you should grab a cheap Xbox console if you haven’t already, and Prime Day is probably your best chance to do that. 

You could pick up a 1TB Xbox One S console with FIFA 21, a one-month Game Pass trial and 14 days of Xbox Live for £249.99 last year, as well as Doom Eternal, a relatively new release at that point, for just £19.99. 

Speaking of Bethesda games, the publisher loves randomly taking chunks off its titles when the opportunity for a good sale comes around. We expect we’ll see Doom Eternal again in this year’s Prime Day, as well as its DLC.

Prime Day PC and Laptop deals 

If you’re currently on the lookout for a new SSD for your laptop or desktop, we’d recommend waiting until Prime Day rocks up. Last year, Amazon reduced the price of its Crucial MX 2TB SSD by 50 quid and the 1TB SSD by 20 quid, so if you’re tired of slow speeds, just hang on for a little longer – it’ll be worth it. 

Expect plenty of deals on external hard drives too, as these have popped up every year in the Amazon Prime Day sale, such as the Seagate Portable 2TB Hard Drive which was reduced to £49.99 last year.

Prime Day TV Deals 

Samsung TV 2021

If you’ve finally upgraded your base PS4 model to a PRO or PS5, or if you’re planning on playing the latest Xbox games in glorious 4K definition, you’ll want to make sure you’re enjoying them in the best quality possible on a decent TV. 

There are plenty of TVs to choose from in the Amazon Prime Day sales, and some of the most popular choices from last year were the Samsung 2020 55” Q6OT QLED 4K TV and the slightly cheaper Philips 43PUS7304/12 43” 4K TV (now sadly discontinued) at the amazing price of £385. Given they’re now selling for £600 used, that’s one heck of a bargain. 

Expect to see plenty of TVs popping up this year, and we’ll be weighing in with some top tips from the experts at Digital Foundry on which sets are best suited for gaming on the PS5 and Xbox One Series X.

What is Amazon Prime Day? 

If you like saving (and spending) money, probably one of the best days of the year. Amazon Prime Day is a massive 48-hour sale that takes place every year, where shoppers can save loads of money on the latest video games, gaming accessories, PC and laptops, technical appliances and loads more. 

While the vast majority of items included in the sale will be available for the entirety of Amazon Prime Day, some of those that are in high demand (the PS5, for example) may only be available for a very limited period. This includes Lightning Deals too, which are only available for a limited time and with limited stock. 

To make sure you don’t miss out on the latest discounts, we’ll be posting these deals the moment they go live, so you can be one of the first to grab whatever you need at a bargain price. Keep checking this page regularly as we’ll be constantly updating it closer when Prime Day 2021 starts to creep up. 

Is Amazon Prime Day only for Prime members? 

You’ll need to have an Amazon Prime Subscription to access the Amazon Prime Day discounts. Thankfully, there’s an easy way to access Amazon Prime Day 2021 for free if you haven’t subscribed to Prime before. 

If you’re based in the UK, you can click here, or here if you’re in the US, to sign up for a 30-day free trial that allows you to take full advantage of the deals in this year’s sale. Just make sure you sign up within 30 days of Amazon Prime Day 2021 taking place. 

After this free trial ends, an Amazon Prime membership will cost you £79/$99 for a year or £7.99/$10.99 a month. 

Honestly, you could easily save £79.99 in a couple of purchases if you’re planning on spending big. A subscription is well worth the cost in our opinion. You get next-day delivery on most items from the site and you’ll be able to watch some of the amazing exclusive films and TV series on Amazon Prime Video, which will soon include a live-action Resident Evil series featuring the Wesker kids and a Fallout series penned by the creators of Westworld. 

What stores are competing with Amazon Prime Day? 

Amazon isn’t the only retailer set to benefit from Amazon Prime Day. Other retailers, such as Target, Walmart and Best Buy in the US, and Tesco, Asda, Curry’s PC World and Smyths to name just a few in the UK, are well aware that these two dates in the calendar send people into a shopping frenzy.

As a result, expect to see plenty of other amazing discounts on the websites of Amazon’s competitors. And if they’re worth your time we’ll be sure to post them onto the Jelly Deals website and Twitter to make sure you don’t miss them.

Is Amazon Prime Day free?

As long as you’ve got an active Amazon Prime subscription, you won’t have to pay anything extra to access the deals on this year’s Prime Day.

Are there any other upcoming sales on Amazon? 

It’s unlikely there’ll be any other major sales taking place on Amazon before Prime Day 2021, but you can always follow us on Twitter to keep up to date with the latest discounts and promotions available on Amazon in the US and UK.
