First, the when. Usually, Amazon Prime Day is in July. However, Amazon confirmed the event will happen before the end of the second quarter, aka before the end of June. CNET states that the exact dates are not yet known, so check Amazon’s site frequently for up-to-date information.
How long does it last, and what will be available? Even though this is called a “day,” it usually lasts several days, and it also includes early discounts. Amazon is known for having regular sales, but lower-than-usual prices can be seen during this time. CNET notes, in particular, that shoppers should watch for deals on Echo smart speakers, Fire TVs, Kindle e-readers, Ring security devices, Instant Pots, Apple AirPods, and Roku streamers.
Why should one care about Amazon Prime Day? The Chicago Tribune says it best: “For many, Amazon products and services are an integral part of life.” From controlling lights and thermostats with Alexa to watching shows on a Fire TV and reading on a Kindle, these are popular items — which could be on sale soon!
