It felt strange to have Prime Day in October last year, but it has paid off now that yet another Prime Day is arriving just nine months later. Amazon’s main Prime Day event kicked off on June 21st, and the wonderful barrage of blink-and-you-miss-it deals has continued through Tuesday the 22nd.
While countless lightning deals have come and gone, not every Prime Day discount has to be a surprise. And if you’re willing to look beyond the products featured by Amazon and consider third-party Amazon vendors, you’ll find Prime Day is somehow even bigger than it initially appears (especially with all the alternative sales held by competitors). You might even find a killer deal on something that you’d never heard of. Live a little!
In addition to the usual suspects (read: Amazon devices and services) the best Prime Day 2021 deals so far have been on headphones, Nintendo Switch games and everyday home goods. We’ve even seen a few nice deals on tools included for good measure.
Of all the sales that have caught our attention so far, we’re most excited about this Amazon Warehouse deal that offered renewed AirPods Pro for $90.25. As you might expect, this deal sold out pretty fast, but we’re hoping for more rare discounts as the festivities continue.
There’s bound to be something for everyone in the thousands of sale items on-offer, but Slickdeals’ editors have our eyes on a few specific sales. Don’t forget – keep an eye on the Frontpage if you want to stay updated on the latest and greatest deals, and don’t forget to set a Deal Alert if you’re looking for a markdown on a certain item.
Check out a selection of the deals and offers we’re most excited about.
Perks for Prime Subscribers
Before you dig into the massive catalog of discounts during the big event, check out these limited-time offers available to any current Prime subscriber.
- Get a free $10 Amazon credit with purchase of $40 worth of Amazon gift cards. Since this deal is basically free money, it’s pretty much always popular with our community. Make sure to apply promo code GCPRIME2021 to receive the full discount.
- If you’ve never checked out Prime Wardrobe, now is a great time to try Amazon’s “try before you buy” clothing service. From now through the end of June 22nd, first-time Prime Wardrobe customers can save $15 on an order over $100. To access the deal, enter the promo code PRIMEW15OFF when you check out. You can test out most apparel products in the Prime Wardrobe section before you buy them, so what do you have to lose?
- You can give your kids three months of educational fun and entertainment for just $0.99 thanks to a Prime Day discount on Amazon Kids+. The app is packed with books, movies, games and TV shows intended to give your children a safe and interesting environment to explore. The same three-month subscription normally costs $29.99, but you can get a better deal by choosing a longer plan once your free trial ends.
- Did you know that you can actually purchase invaluable family mementos from Amazon? They really do have it all. From now through Prime Day, Prime subscribers can claim 21 free photo prints from Amazon Photos. To access the deal, enter the promo code PRINTS21 when preparing to submit your order. Prime members receive free standard shipping on their Amazon Photos order.
Spend and Save on Subscriptions and Services
Amazon Prime isn’t just a streaming platform with a free shipping scheme — there are plenty of extra services, members-only offers and subscriptions included with your Prime subscription. This really pays off when Prime Day rolls around, as many of these subscription deals and card offers can be redeemed and enjoyed long after the big event has come and gone.
A few noteworthy offers:
- New Audible subscribers can save over 50% on a four-month Premium Plus subscription to Amazon’s audiobook service (now $6.95, originally $14.95). You have until June 30th to claim this deal, and you don’t need to do anything to access it – as long as your account isn’t already linked to an Audible subscription.
- Hungry from all that deal-hunting? If you sign up for Panera Bread‘s myPanera Now program and place an order on June 21st or 22nd, you can save 40% on your online Panera order and earn a $3 Amazon Prime credit to spend during Prime Day.
Now that newly released 2021 4K TVs have been available for a few months, we’re starting to see better and better TV deals. Amazon has already offered some exciting 4K TV deals for Prime Day (especially on budget-friendly selections from Insignia and Toshiba), and it seems like new TV offers are set to continue into the second day of deals.
On top of that, Amazon is offering up to 50% on thousands of movies and TV rentals as part of Prime Video’s annual Prime Day sale. Once you’re all set up with your new TV, you can keep yourself entertained without breaking the bank.
