Amazon Prime Day 2021 Is Set For June 21 and 22
With its delayed date and fulfillment challenges, Amazon Prime Day 2020 was unlike any other. With the challenges experienced in 2020, many shoppers were unsure of what to expect in 2021.
Have no fear avid Amazon Prime Day shoppers! For those of you who were worried you would miss it this year, Amazon Prime Day is coming. Amazon Prime Day will run from June 21-22 this year. Which is one month earlier than the usual July date.
More than 20 countries are expected to be participants in Amazon’s yearly retail shopping event. Prime Day has only grown bigger since its launch in July 2015, and we do not expect this year to be any different. There will even be deals on electronics, home goods, video games, toys, and more. There are even daily deals leading up to Prime Day.
How Will Prime Day 2021 Be Different?
Over the past year, consumers reduced their overall spending and transitioned from in-person shopping to online shopping. Amazon held the top spot for online shopping destinations throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. Last year, Prime Day was held in October, months after shockwaves of the COVID-19 pandemic were felt across the country.
Many consumers experienced financial challenges in 2020 and made adjustments to their spending habits. As more consumers continue to make adjustments to their spending habits throughout the year, we anticipate that many shoppers will commit to participate in this year’s Prime Day to find as many deals as they can. More consumers are looking for ways to save money with Promotions, Lightning Deals, Coupons, etc.
This year’s Prime Day event can result in big changes for businesses and consumers.
What Deals Are You Looking To Find?
If Amazon Prime Day 2021 is anything like Amazon Prime Day 2020, there will be an array of fantastic deals. The top Amazon Prime Day deals we expect this year include the following:
- Amazon Echo dots, along with other Alexa products that you can add to your collection
- Smart home devices
- Apple products, including AirPods
This year, Amazon is already promoting some of their Prime Day deals on the website, including great savings on smart home devices and savings on household and daily essentials. There will also be deals on the Blink Indoor Cameras, Ring Video Doorbell, and Samsung’s 43-inch 4K TV. If you have your sights set on a new pair of AirPods, a smart home device, or if you want to find out what the hype is surrounding 4K resolution televisions, Prime Day is your chance to get one or all of those things at an amazing price.
Prime Day Shopping Tips
As you prepare to get out your credit cards and debit cards to participate in this year’s Prime Day, now is a great time to brush up on your cybersecurity skills so you can shop smarter and safer. We know that cybercrime rises during shopping seasons, and we want to help you outsmart the cybercriminals if you are going to participate in Prime Day 2021.
Use Amazon’s official app and/or website
The app has proven to be a convenient way to shop on Amazon, but it is also safer because it is the official application. If you are going to use the website, ensure you check for misspellings before using the website. Domain spoofers use variations of the Amazon domain, so it is important to ensure the website is correct, and you should also check for misspellings in any emails you receive.
Secure your Amazon account
If you have not enabled Multi-Factor Authentication on your Amazon account, you may want to do so now. As an Amazon user, you are likely aware that Amazon has been using this feature for quite some time.
Use a secure network
If you plan to shop, we recommend doing your shopping on a secure network. You will want to avoid doing your online shopping using a public or open Wi-Fi network.
Use complex passwords
As tempting as it may be to use simple passwords because they are easy for you to remember, we recommend using strong passwords.
If you are shopping online, we recommend only sharing the bare minimum that is needed to complete your transaction.
