Remember that pricing on Amazon is subject to change at any time.
When Is Prime Day 2021?
Amazon officially confirmed that Prime Day 2021 will be returning to it's normal Summertime slot this year. While the event has historically been mid-July, it was moved to October in 2020 due to the pandemic last year causing massive shipping delays.
We have OFFICIAL word now that Amazon Prime Day 2021 will take place on JUNE 21 and 22 this year!
While we still have a few more weeks – it's not too early to start predicting what kinds of deals we expect out of this year's sale.
What is Amazon Prime Day?
Prime Day is a HUGE 2-Day Amazon event that typically takes place in July (as we know this year we get the deals early in June!). This retail holiday is open only to Amazon Prime members exclusively. The 48-Hour sale brings in major revenue for Amazon months before Black Friday sales start. It's like Amazon's very own early Black Friday – and just like Black Friday, this is a shopping event you'll want to plan for so you don't get overwhelmed.
What are the Best Amazon Prime Day Deals and Coupons you can get?
In 2020, we saw some of the Best Amazon Prime Day Deals, EVER. We are expecting either the same caliber of deals, or maybe even better this year!
Last year we saw a TON of deals on Amazon products, huge savings on TVs, as well as Amazon Prime Day Coupons for things like groceries, pet care, and more. We also saw quite a few early prime day deals pop up too as well as Amazon Promotional credits.
The $10 credit freebie was one of the favorite deals last year so we are definitely hoping to see that one again!
- $10 Credit for Prime Day with a $10+ Purchase from Whole Foods
- $10 Credit for Prime Day with a $10+ Purchase from Small Businesses
(Small Businesses and Whole Foods got a huge boost when Amazon offered a FREE $10 Credit to spend on Prime Day with any $10 purchase)
Best Prime Day Deals from 2020
Here are some of the most memorable deals we saw during last year's event:
Insignia 32″ Fire TV – $119.99
iRobot Roomba Vacuum – 38% off
Coleman Montana 8-Person Tent – 50% OFF!

Here's what you need to know to get ready for Prime Day:
1. Sign up for Amazon Prime
You have to be a Prime member to shop Prime Day – so at the beginning of June you'll want to sign up for a FREE 30-Day Trial. Bonus -you'll get to enjoy that Free 2-Day shipping for the whole next month 🙂
2. Get Free Amazon Shopping Credits
Usually, leading up to Prime Day, Amazon will offer ways to score free Amazon credit (such as trying Amazon Video, ordering though Alexa, or adding Amazon Cash to your account!). We will definitely keep an eye out for these deals for you.
3. Know the answer to “When is Prime Day” 🙂
Amazon's 2021 Prime Day is now confirmed to be June 21 and 22. Typically, deals will be going live as often as every 5 minutes for 48 hours! And, be sure to keep up with Passionate Penny Pincher by email so you never miss a deal (you can sign up for PPP emails right over HERE and never miss a deal!)
4. Alexa Voice Shoppers Get Early Deals
Did you know that using your voice to shop gets you extra early deals? Customers shopping with devices powered by Alexa (like an Echo or Echo Dot) can get access to select deals a little earlier!
5. Prep For Lightning Deals
You may want to bookmark the page on Amazon for these deals – they tend to go FAST and are only offered in limited quantities.
6. Use the Waitlist and Add Items Early to Your Cart
If there’s something you want, add it to your cart to save yourself one little step for once the deal goes live. Even if you're CONSIDERING it, add to your list. Even if you have NO IDEA what’s going to go on sale for Prime Day – go ahead and add items you’re wanting to “your list” and then when/if they go on sale, you’ll get a notification so you can hop on the deal!
If you've never added items to your list – it's easy! Just click “Add to List”.
Also, if it is showing the product is out of stock, feel free to join the waitlist. There are so many times I’ve joined the waitlist and ended up getting the deal after a bunch of people backed out.
7. Score $$ for Slower Shipping
I know one of the best benefits of Prime is fast shipping, but if it's something you don't need RIGHT away, choose “No Rush Shipping” and you can get a $5.95 Credit to be used towards Prime Pantry orders!
Will stores like Walmart and Target do a Prime Day Sale?
Most likely, yes. Last year, Target rivaled Amazon with the Target Deal Days and even matched some of their prices. Walmart featured a similar sale during this time period last year – and since Walmart recently launched Walmart Plus, I would definitely expect them to be bringing some competition this year!
