When is Prime Day 2021?

Details around Prime Day 2021 aren’t fully final. However, the retailer has confirmed that it will be taking place some time between May and June, reports Today.

“We’re excited for the return of Prime Day and look forward to providing our members with incredible savings, while investing in opportunities for our small business selling partners, and continuing to ensure the safety of our employees," a spokesperson confirmed to the outlet. "We’ll share more details soon and customers can also say, 'Alexa, keep me posted on Prime Day' to stay informed.”

What is Prime Day?

Amazon launched Prime Day in 2015 as an opportunity to give shoppers huge deals. The day was originally a July event. Last year, the company delayed it until October amid the pandemic. However, they also made it a two-day event, and reported a 60% increase in sales over 2019.

How long will this year’s Prime Day last?

While final details have not been confirmed, various outlets suspect that this year’s Prime Day could last two days in a row, or even occur on two separate days between May and June.
