The Amazon Prime Day deals have landed. It's the first day of two days of Prime Day deals so brace yourself for some big savings on, well, everything.

But we'll be focussed on all things tech, as Prime Day 2021 has already served up good discounts on all kinds of AV devices, from up to 40% off Fire TVs and up to 70% off Echo devices

Of course, you have to be an Amazon Prime member in order to take advantage. Don't have Prime? Register for Amazon's 30-day Prime free trial now for a sneaky way to bag some deals for free (just remember to cancel before the end of your free trial if you don't want to continue).

The online retail giant has turned its annual Prime Day sale into a serious shopping event thanks to low prices and speedy delivery. From a single day of deals, Prime Day grew to two days (and more) of special offers in 2019 and stayed that way in 2020. 

We'll once again sort the best Prime Day deals from the rest, so bookmark this page for all the best deals. We're also rounding up the best Prime Day TV deals and Prime Day headphones deals on separate pages as we know they're always some of the most popular products on offer.

So without further ado, let's get to those Prime Day deals...

What is Amazon Prime Day?

Prime Day is Amazon's take on Black Friday. While every online retailer gets involved in the now annual Black Friday bargain bun fight, Prime Day is all about Amazon.

The special day of deals is a members-only affair, so you'll need to be a Prime member to take advantage of the offers. Thanks to Amazon's 30-day Prime free trial, there is always the option to sign up, bag a few bargains, and then cancel your membership. 

Prime members are then able to take advantage of limited time only 'Lightning deals' as well as broader Prime Day deals across the site.

Amazon promises new deals every few minutes, with the deals dropping on the website and on the Amazon app (which gave members an early heads-up on the deals). 

As well as the US, Prime Day 2021 will take place in the UK, India, United Arab Emirates, Spain, Singapore, the Netherlands, Mexico, Luxembourg, Japan, Italy, Germany, France, China, Canada, Belgium, Austria, Australia, Turkey and Brazil.

When is Amazon Prime Day 2021?

Amazon has officially confirmed that Prime Day 2021 will take place on 21-22 June. In other words, the big event starts on Monday!

Prime Day is usually a summer affair but it was was all change in 2020. The coronavirus pandemic caused Amazon to push back its plans, and Prime Day 2020 wasn't held until 13th and 14th October – just a few weeks before Black Friday, another of the year's biggest sales events.
