The annual Amazon Prime sale
Once again it is that time of year. The annual Amazon Prime sale is upon us once again, increasing the profits of a company that already has a lot of money.
Amazon Prime Day 2021 has yet to be officially announced, but we know when it’s likely to take place-we’ll talk more about that in a moment.
Let me clarify that Prime Day is Amazon’s Black Friday, which will probably happen this summer. Some great deals will be available, but do you really need to care?
Prime Day, what is it?
You can get steep savings on many items through limited-time flash deals. It’s kind of like Black Friday, but a little bit different. It’s always a multi-day affair. There are a lot of deals on Amazon because it is the everything marketplace. When looking for something specific, such as a specific computer model, you may wait until a reasonable sale window from the retailer (typically during the holidays).
Unless you’re particularly picky about a specific item, you may find a great deal. But you may need to keep looking for it.
A 48-hour worldwide shopping bonanza, Prime Day now features lots of deals, discounts, and sales records.
According to estimates, Prime Day sales reached a record 10.4 billion U.S. dollars worldwide in 2020, making it the most successful shopping event in Amazon history. Consumer spending increased by 45 percent over the two-day event in comparison to 2019, a result evidently attributed to the effects of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
When is Amazon Prime Day 2021?
As of right now, there is no confirmation of that, but we know for certain it will take place before the second quarter. We still don’t have an official date from Amazon, but rumour has it that it will be in June.
Are there any good deals to be found?
Depending on what you’re interested in, you’ll find great prices on Amazon-specific products, such as the Echo Dot, at a discount. However, savings on non-Amazon items can be a little unpredictable.
- Prime Day sold 175 million items in 2019 alone.
- The online catalogue was browsed by millions of Prime members in 18 countries that year for deals and bargains.
- The top-selling product category on Prime Day for American Prime Day-goers in 2020 was electronics.
- The Kindle, the Echo smart speaker, and the Fire tablet are among Amazon’s best-selling products, as Amazon primarily promotes its own brand of digital devices.
The best way to avoid bad deals is to be aware of what is out there.
You need to be extremely cautious when reading reviews. One option is to install an extension like Fakespot, which prevents counterfeit reviews and fake content. Other options include CamelCamelCamel, which tracks prices on Amazon so you can see if a deal is really a steal.
Should I skip Prime Day?
It’s true that Amazon is a massive corporation that made Jeff Bezos the richest man in the world, but it is under fire for labour atrocities and union-busting. Then there’s the whole trash issue where the platform gets caught selling. Not so good!
