Insider Reviews Black Friday 2021 collage image featuring gifts like Instant Pot, Sardel 12-inch Skillet, Apple Watch, TV and Nike SuperRep Go

Black Friday has arrived and some of the best discounts are available at Amazon. TVs, kitchen appliances, smart home devices, video games and more are all down to some of the lowest prices we've seen this year. Amazon's huge catalog and willingness to price match competitors makes it one of the best places to find Black Friday deals, especially for Prime members.

It's also a great time to score discounts on Amazon devices like Kindles, Echo smart speakers, and Ring doorbells. Although plenty of deals are expected to carry on through Cyber Monday, snagging a discount sooner rather than later can help you avoid shipping delays and secure hot ticket items like Apple AirPods before they sell out.

Here at Insider Reviews we test products across all categories to determine what items are really worth recommending. Below, we highlighted the best Amazon Black Friday deals available right now on products we think are worth the money. Keep checking this page as we'll be updating it with new deals as often as we can.

Amazon Black Friday FAQs

When does Amazon's Black Friday sale start?

Black Friday is an annual sales event that traditionally happens at the end of November, after Thanksgiving, and it's followed closely by Cyber Monday. This year, Black Friday and Cyber Monday land on November 26 and November 29, respectively.

Amazon began early Black Friday discounts in October with a series of Epic Daily Deals. Now, the official Black Friday Sale is live and will carry on through Cyber Monday. 

What should I buy from Amazon's Black Friday deals?

Amazon is the everything store — which means if something is on your shopping list, it will likely see a discount during Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

We're already seeing huge discounts on Amazon's in-house brands, Fire devices, Kindles, and Echo smart home gadgetry that matches what we saw during Prime Day. Plus, we expect to see several of Amazon's services dramatic markdowns like we saw on Prime Day, tweaked slightly. 

On top of that, the sale will encompass every product category Amazon offers, which is to say, everything. Tech, beauty, home and kitchen, fashion, and smart home are some of the categories to be on the lookout for. 

Last year, we saw discounts of up to 50% on streaming sticks, voice assistants, headphones, and more. 

There are two deal types you should be aware of during Black Friday: daily deals and Lightning deals. The former are one-day offers, usually grouped by brand or category, and change at the end of the day. The latter are limited-time offers, often less than 24 hours, released throughout the day.

Each is limited by stock. So, it's not unwise to reorganize your shopping behavior; create the order first and agonize about the purchase afterward (you can always cancel the order before it ships without any penalty.) 

How we're selecting the best Amazon Black Friday deals 

  • We only choose products that meet our high standard of coverage, and that we've either used ourselves or researched carefully.
  • We will compare the prices against other retailers like Target and Best Buy and only include the deals that are the same or better (not including promotional discounts that come from using certain credit cards).
  • All deals are at least 20% off, with the occasional exception for products that are rarely discounted or provide an outsized value.

Do I need to be a Prime member to shop Black Friday at Amazon?

Unlike Prime Day, which requires a Prime subscription, Amazon's Black Friday sale is open to everyone. 

However, shopping on Amazon costs more and takes longer without a Prime membership. That said, if you're like most Americans and plan to do most of your holiday shopping during Black Friday, we strongly suggest you become a Prime member.

A Prime membership costs $13 a month, or $119 for a full year, which may seem steep, but it's still completely worth it. Of course, you could sign up for a 30-day trial, or just pay for a month-long membership. (You're in the window where you can start now, shop Black Friday and Cyber Monday, and not have to pay for the subscription.) Amazon also offers discounted Prime memberships for a few select groups.

No matter how you spin it, subscribing to Prime is the best way to make the most out of Amazon during Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

Can I order online and pick up in a store?

Unlike Target, Best Buy, and Walmart, Amazon shoppers are unable to shop at a store.

However, Amazon offers a few ways to ship your orders in addition to the standard two-day shipping, including free same-day shipping (which may be hard to come by during Black Friday), Amazon Day scheduled deliveries, and Amazon Hub Locker pickup, which offers a self-service delivery location, or locker, to pick up and return your orders.

Best tech and gaming deals for Amazon Prime Day 2021

Outside of Black Friday, Amazon Prime Day is when we see the steepest discounts on TVs, speakers, headphones, laptops, computers, games, and, of course, Amazon-branded devices.

Like last year, we don't see any discounts on the still-scarce Playstation 5 and Xbox Series X consoles. However, we found a ton of discounts on peripherals, like controllers, as well as some games. During the duration of Amazon Prime Day, Nintendo is dropping the price on several digital games through its eShop during its Digital Deals event.

PC gamers can find deep discounts on monitors, mice, mechanical, and keyboards. However, don't expect to find any graphics cards on sale - those, too, are also in short supply.

We're seeing popular brands like Razer, Steelseries, and Logitech drop prices on their gaming products to all-time lows during Prime Day 2021.

Frequently asked questions

When is Amazon Prime Day 2021?

Amazon's annual Prime Day event kicked off today, June 21. The shopping event finishes up today on June 22. But don't worry if you can't shop during that time - we expect to see several discounts last a few days after the end of Amazon Prime Day.

What is Amazon Prime Day 2021?

For the unfamiliar, Amazon Prime Day 2021 is an exclusive shopping event for the site's 150-million-plus Prime subscribers. Introduced in 2015 in part to celebrate Amazon's 20th anniversary, the first Amazon Prime Day was a one-day-only retail holiday for Prime members that sought to overtake Black Friday as the sales event of the year.

During Amazon Prime Day 2021, we're seeing prices to drop to all-time lows, beating out prices we see over Black Friday and Cyber Monday. The sale covers every product category Amazon offers: tech, beauty, home, kitchen, fashion, and smart home. So far, we're already seeing all-time lows and great prices on everything, from headphones and fitness trackers to iPads and Instant Pots.

A Prime membership costs $13 a month or $119 a year and delivers other benefits, like free two-day shipping, rewards at Amazon stores like Whole Foods, and hundreds of streaming movies and TV shows from Prime Video. New subscribers can try Prime with a free 30-day trial and gain immediate access to Prime Day deals.

How to find the best Amazon Prime Day 2021 deals

If you want to shop during Amazon Prime Day 2021, bookmark the Amazon Deals Page. This is where Amazon will host all of its deals, alongside its limited-time Lightning deals.

In previous years, Amazon Prime Day deals have been time- and stock-sensitive. We've seen the best ones sell out quickly, restocked later in the day or on the second day. Some discounts will last through both days of the sales event, but others are exclusive to the first or second days.

While Amazon is the main destination for Amazon Prime Day deals, we know several retailers, including Target, Kohl's, and Walmart, will be offering competing sales, with matching prices or additional bonuses.

Are Amazon Prime Day deals worth it?

For the most part, yes. Like Black Friday and Cyber Monday later this year, Amazon Prime Day often brings many terrific bargains on tech, home goods, smart home products, and outdoor gear.

Many of the deals we've seen match the best prices offered throughout the year. However, not all of the discounts will be worth your time. Before you buy, make sure to compare the prices with historical data with CamelCamelCamel and Amazon's competition. Of course, we'll evaluate all of the offers for you during Amazon Prime Day 2021.

How can I save more during Amazon Prime Day 2021?

There are several avenues to save during Amazon Prime Day 2021.

First, you can take advantage of the early offers made available by Amazon, such as buying from small businesses.

Second, Amazon Prime Rewards Visa Card or Amazon Prime Store Card cardholders can also earn 10% cash back on small business purchases during the duration of the 'Spend $10, get $10' promotion.

Amazon will likely offer increased cash back rewards on select items, so make sure to make your Amazon Prime Rewards card your default payment method.

Be sure to follow Insider Reviews on Facebook and Twitter, and bookmark our Amazon Prime Day page. During the lead-up and the sales event, our team of journalists will evaluate prices, compare competing sales, and highlight the best offers.

Also, make sure to sign up for our newsletter to get the best deals directly in your inbox.

Who can access Amazon Prime Day deals

Only Amazon Prime members can take advantage of this event. Signing up is easy, though, and a membership comes with many more benefits than just Prime Day deals access and free two-day shipping. New members can sign up for a free 30-day trial with full benefits before committing.

Last year, Prime members in the following countries participated in the event: the US, the UK, the United Arab Emirates, Turkey, Spain, Singapore, Saudi Arabia, Portugal, Netherlands, Mexico, Luxembourg, Japan, Italy, Germany, France, China, Brazil, Belgium, Austria, and Australia.

Where to find alternative sales during Amazon Prime Day 2021

Amazon Prime Day started as, unsurprisingly, an Amazon-centric sale event. Of course, that didn't stop other retailers from offering their own competing sales.

In the past few years, retailers offering competing sales included Walmart, Target, Best Buy, Kohl's, and Bed Bath & Beyond. This year should be no different. While we don't expect any retailer to match the breadth of Amazon Prime Day offerings, we found that the retailers generally match some of the "doorbuster" sales on stuff like iPads and TVs, and there are some better offers, as well.

Walmart's "Big Save Event" is live now, a day before Amazon Prime Day 2021, and lasts until June 23.

Target's "Deal Days" event also live now and ends June 22. From what we saw last year, we can expect comparable discounts and matched prices. Whether you're shopping for the latest tech or want to save on essentials, you can find bargains during Target's Deal Days.

Best Buy's "Bigger Deal Savings Event" is already underway until June 22 and includes up to $250 off select gaming laptops, up to 50% off small kitchen appliances, and up to $400 off select Samsung Galaxy phones. However, we expect even more deals in the coming days.

Kohl's Wow Deals event will be held in-stores and online for the duration of Amazon Prime Day: June 21 through 22. Shoppers will earn $10 in Kohl's Cash for every $50 spent during the two-day event, and Kohl's Card members will get an additional 15% off on Wow Deals sales and promotions.

Bed Bath & Beyond's 'Beyond Big Savings Event' runs from June 20 to June 22. You can now save up to 50% on everything. For extra savings, get a one-year Beyond+ membership for $29 and enjoy 20% off and free standard shipping on all orders.

Which is better for deals: Amazon Prime Day or Black Friday?

It depends on what you're shopping for.

Amazon Prime Day is, first and foremost, an Amazon event. This means Amazon Prime Day offers the best deals on Amazon products. So, expect to see deals on Amazon Echo smart speakers, Fire TVs and streaming devices, Kindle e-readers, Audible, and Amazon Music Unlimited subscriptions.

Black Friday, on the other hand, doesn't "belong" to any particular store. This means that shoppers can expect sales and savings from more retailers, outside of those few that compete with Amazon during Prime Day.

Additionally, Prime Day is better for scoring deals on products selling for under $100 and products you'll buy more than once per year, like clothing, food, and beauty products, while Black Friday is for once-a-year and rarer purchases like TVs, gaming consoles, and laptops.

Frequently asked questions

When is Amazon Prime Day 2021?

Amazon's annual Prime Day event kicked off today, June 21. The shopping event finishes up the following day on June 22. But don't worry if you can't shop during that time - we expect to see several discounts last a few days after the end of Amazon Prime Day.

Early Amazon Prime Day 2021 deals

Amazon has launched a series of early Amazon Prime Day 2021 deals, and we've collected the best ones here.

  • Audible Premium Plus: Prime subscribers can get Audible Premium Plus for $6.95 a month for four months - a $32 savings. Those who take advantage of this deal will also get an audiobook of their choice each month - including best sellers and new releases. After four months, Audible Premium Plus is $14.95 a month.
  • Amazon Music Unlimited: Prime members who haven't tried Amazon Music Unlimited can get four months free. Amazon Music Unlimited grants members access to more than 70 million songs ad-free and millions of podcast episodes.
  • Wondery+: Prime members can get four months of ad-free listening on Wondery+ for free. For those unfamiliar, Wondery+ is Amazon's "immersive podcast listening experience" with originals like "Dr. Death," "Even the Rich," and "Business Wars."

Just like last year, Amazon offered several avenues for shoppers to collect credits ahead of Amazon Prime Day 2021.

  • Get a $10 credit to use on Amazon Prime Day when you spend $10 on items sold by small businesses through June 20.
  • Amazon Prime Rewards Visa Card or Amazon Prime Store Card cardholders (with an eligible Prime membership) can also earn 10% cash back on small business purchases during the duration of the 'Spend $10, get $10' promotion.

Unfortunately, shoppers: the small business offer has ended.

What is Amazon Prime Day 2021?

For the unfamiliar, Amazon Prime Day 2021 is an exclusive shopping event for the site's 150-million-plus Prime subscribers. Introduced in 2015 in part to celebrate Amazon's 20th anniversary, the first Amazon Prime Day was a one-day-only retail holiday for Prime members that sought to overtake Black Friday as the sales event of the year.

During Amazon Prime Day 2021, we're seeing prices to drop to all-time lows, beating out prices we see over Black Friday and Cyber Monday. The sale covers every product category Amazon offers: tech, beauty, home, kitchen, fashion, and smart home. So far, we're already seeing all-time lows and great prices on everything, from headphones and fitness trackers to iPads and Instant Pots.

A Prime membership costs $13 a month or $119 a year and delivers other benefits, like free two-day shipping, rewards at Amazon stores like Whole Foods, and hundreds of streaming movies and TV shows from Prime Video. New subscribers can try Prime with a free 30-day trial and gain immediate access to Prime Day deals.

How to find the best Amazon Prime Day 2021 deals

If you want to shop during Amazon Prime Day 2021, bookmark the Amazon Deals Page. This is where Amazon will host all of its deals, alongside its limited-time Lightning deals.

In previous years, Amazon Prime Day deals have been time- and stock-sensitive. We've seen the best ones sell out quickly, restocked later in the day or on the second day. Some discounts will last through both days of the sales event, but others are exclusive to the first or second days.

While Amazon is the main destination for Amazon Prime Day deals, we know several retailers, including Target, Kohl's, and Walmart, will be offering competing sales, with matching prices or additional bonuses.

Are Amazon Prime Day deals worth it?

For the most part, yes. Like Black Friday and Cyber Monday later this year, Amazon Prime Day often brings many terrific bargains on tech, home goods, smart home products, and outdoor gear.

Many of the deals we've seen match the best prices offered throughout the year. However, not all of the discounts will be worth your time. Before you buy, make sure to compare the prices with historical data with CamelCamelCamel and Amazon's competition. Of course, we'll evaluate all of the offers for you during Amazon Prime Day 2021.

How can I save more during Amazon Prime Day 2021?

There are several avenues to save during Amazon Prime Day 2021.

First, you can take advantage of the early offers made available by Amazon, such as buying from small businesses.

Second, Amazon Prime Rewards Visa Card or Amazon Prime Store Card cardholders can also earn 10% cash back on small business purchases during the duration of the 'Spend $10, get $10' promotion.

Amazon will likely offer increased cash back rewards on select items, so make sure to make your Amazon Prime Rewards card your default payment method.

Be sure to follow Insider Reviews on Facebook and Twitter, and bookmark our Amazon Prime Day page. During the lead-up and the sales event, our team of journalists will evaluate prices, compare competing sales, and highlight the best offers.

Also, make sure to sign up for our newsletter to get the best deals directly in your inbox.

Who can access Amazon Prime Day deals

Only Amazon Prime members can take advantage of this event. Signing up is easy, though, and a membership comes with many more benefits than just Prime Day deals access and free two-day shipping. New members can sign up for a free 30-day trial with full benefits before committing.

Last year, Prime members in the following countries participated in the event: the US, the UK, the United Arab Emirates, Turkey, Spain, Singapore, Saudi Arabia, Portugal, Netherlands, Mexico, Luxembourg, Japan, Italy, Germany, France, China, Brazil, Belgium, Austria, and Australia.

Where to find alternative sales during Amazon Prime Day 2021

Amazon Prime Day started as, unsurprisingly, an Amazon-centric sale event. Of course, that didn't stop other retailers from offering their own competing sales.

In the past few years, retailers offering competing sales included Walmart, Target, Best Buy, Kohl's, and Bed Bath & Beyond. This year should be no different. While we don't expect any retailer to match the breadth of Amazon Prime Day offerings, we found that the retailers generally match some of the "doorbuster" sales on stuff like iPads and TVs, and there are some better offers, as well.

Walmart's "Big Save Event" is live now, a day before Amazon Prime Day 2021, and lasts until June 23.

Target's "Deal Days" event also live now and ends June 22. From what we saw last year, we can expect comparable discounts and matched prices. Whether you're shopping for the latest tech or want to save on essentials, you can find bargains during Target's Deal Days.

Best Buy's "Bigger Deal Savings Event" is already underway until June 22 and includes up to $250 off select gaming laptops, up to 50% off small kitchen appliances, and up to $400 off select Samsung Galaxy phones. However, we expect even more deals in the coming days.

Kohl's Wow Deals event will be held in-stores and online for the duration of Amazon Prime Day: June 21 through 22. Shoppers will earn $10 in Kohl's Cash for every $50 spent during the two-day event, and Kohl's Card members will get an additional 15% off on Wow Deals sales and promotions.

Bed Bath & Beyond's 'Beyond Big Savings Event' runs from June 20 to June 22. You can now save up to 50% on everything. For extra savings, get a one-year Beyond+ membership for $29 and enjoy 20% off and free standard shipping on all orders.

Which is better for deals: Amazon Prime Day or Black Friday?

It depends on what you're shopping for.

Amazon Prime Day is, first and foremost, an Amazon event. This means Amazon Prime Day offers the best deals on Amazon products. So, expect to see deals on Amazon Echo smart speakers, Fire TVs and streaming devices, Kindle e-readers, Audible, and Amazon Music Unlimited subscriptions.

Black Friday, on the other hand, doesn't "belong" to any particular store. This means that shoppers can expect sales and savings from more retailers, outside of those few that compete with Amazon during Prime Day.

Additionally, Prime Day is better for scoring deals on products selling for under $100 and products you'll buy more than once per year, like clothing, food, and beauty products, while Black Friday is for once-a-year and rarer purchases like TVs, gaming consoles, and laptops.

Best tech and gaming deals for Amazon Prime Day 2021

Outside of Black Friday, Amazon Prime Day is when we see the steepest discounts on TVs, speakers, headphones, laptops, computers, games, and, of course, Amazon-branded devices.

Like last year, we don't see any discounts on the still-scarce Playstation 5 and Xbox Series X consoles. However, we found a ton of discounts on peripherals, like controllers, as well as some games. During the duration of Amazon Prime Day, Nintendo is dropping the price on several digital games through its eShop during its Digital Deals event.

PC gamers can find deep discounts on monitors, mice, mechanical, and keyboards. However, don't expect to find any graphics cards on sale - those, too, are also in short supply.

We're seeing popular brands like Razer, Steelseries, and Logitech drop prices on their gaming products to all-time lows during Prime Day 2021.

Best Amazon Prime Day 2021 tech and gaming deals

Outside of Black Friday, Amazon Prime Day is when we see the steepest discounts on TVs, speakers, headphones, laptops, computers, games, and, of course, Amazon-branded devices.

Like last year, we don't expect to see any discounts on the still-scarce Playstation 5 and Xbox Series X consoles. However, we may see discounts on peripherals, like controllers, as well as some games. During the duration of Amazon Prime Day, Nintendo is dropping the price on several digital games through its eShop during its Digital Deals event.

PC gamers can look forward to deep discounts on monitors, mice, mechanical, and keyboards. However, don't expect to find any graphics cards on sale - those, too, are also in short supply.

Popular brands, like Razer, Steelseries, and Logitech, have been known to drop prices on their gaming products to all-time lows during Amazon Prime Day.

Frequently asked questions

When is Amazon Prime Day 2021?

Amazon's annual Prime Day event kicks off soon at midnight PDT on June 21. The shopping event finishes up the following day on June 22. But don't worry if you can't shop during that time - we expect to see several discounts last a few days after the end of Amazon Prime Day.

Early Amazon Prime Day 2021 deals

You don't need to wait until June 21 to get deals. Amazon has launched a series of early Amazon Prime Day 2021 deals, and we've collected the best ones here.

  • Audible Premium Plus: Prime subscribers can get Audible Premium Plus for $6.95 a month for four months - a $32 savings. Those who take advantage of this deal will also get an audiobook of their choice each month - including best sellers and new releases. After four months, Audible Premium Plus is $14.95 a month.
  • Amazon Music Unlimited: Prime members who haven't tried Amazon Music Unlimited can get four months free. Amazon Music Unlimited grants members access to more than 70 million songs ad-free and millions of podcast episodes.
  • Wondery+: Prime members can get four months of ad-free listening on Wondery+ for free. For those unfamiliar, Wondery+ is Amazon's "immersive podcast listening experience" with originals like "Dr. Death," "Even the Rich," and "Business Wars."

Just like last year, Amazon is also offering several avenues for shoppers to collect credits ahead of Amazon Prime Day 2021.

  • Get a $10 credit to use on Amazon Prime Day when you spend $10 on items sold by small businesses through June 20.
  • Amazon Prime Rewards Visa Card or Amazon Prime Store Card cardholders (with an eligible Prime membership) can also earn 10% cash back on small business purchases during the duration of the 'Spend $10, get $10' promotion.

Unfortunately, shoppers: the free $10 gift card promotion has ended.

What is Amazon Prime Day 2021?

Introduced in 2015 in part to celebrate Amazon's 20th anniversary, the first Amazon Prime Day was a one-day-only retail holiday for Prime members that sought to overtake Black Friday as the sales event of the year.

During Amazon Prime Day 2021, we expect prices to drop to all-time lows, often beating out prices we see over Black Friday and Cyber Monday. The sale covers every product category Amazon offers: tech, beauty, home, kitchen, fashion, and smart home.

Prime 30-Day Free Trial (medium)

Amazon Prime Day 2021 deals to expect

Amazon Prime Day drops some most exceptional deals we see all year, and we can predict what brands and product categories will see deep discounts based on Prime Days past.

Most of Amazon's wares and services will see significant drops during Amazon Prime Day 2021. Shoppers can expect some of the best discounts on stuff like Kindles, Echo smart speakers, Fire TV streaming devices, Eero routers, and, of course, their services, including Kindle Unlimited, Audible, and Music Unlimited.

Additionally, we expect to see tons of discounts on electronics, home goods, and gaming devices. Instant Pots, LifeStraw water filters, and robot vacuums were some of the most purchased products during last year's Amazon Prime Day. That's to say nothing about all of the competing sales that are likely to pop up during the sale event, from retailers like Target, Best Buy, and Walmart.

How to prepare for Amazon Prime Day 2021

If you want to shop Amazon Prime Day 2021, you'll want to start by becoming an Amazon Prime subscriber. You can pick up a monthly subscription for $13, but we think it's wiser to pay the $119 annual subscription.

For first-time subscribers, there's a 30-day free trial to take advantage of. While the upfront subscription cost may give you pause, we think that the benefits of an Amazon Prime subscription are worth the fees year-round.

Secondly, you'll want to download the Amazon app. It's handy for Prime Day, to receive alerts for when deals are activated.

How to find the best Amazon Prime Day 2021 deals

Ahead of Amazon Prime Day 2021, you should bookmark the Amazon Deals Page. This is where Amazon will host all of its deals, alongside its limited-time Lightning deals.

In previous years, Amazon Prime Day deals have been time- and stock-sensitive. We've seen the best ones sell out quickly, restocked later in the day or on the second day. Some discounts will last through both days of the sales event, but others are exclusive to the first or second days.

While Amazon is the main destination for Amazon Prime Day deals, we know several retailers, including Target, Kohl's, and Walmart, will be offering competing sales, with matching prices or additional bonuses.

Are Amazon Prime Day deals worth it?

For the most part, yes. Like Black Friday and Cyber Monday later this year, Amazon Prime Day often brings many terrific bargains on tech, home goods, smart home products, and outdoor gear.

Many of the deals we've seen match the best prices offered throughout the year. However, not all of the discounts will be worth your time. Before you buy, make sure to compare the prices with historical data with CamelCamelCamel and Amazon's competition. Of course, we'll evaluate all of the offers for you during Amazon Prime Day 2021.

How can I save more during Amazon Prime Day 2021?

There are several avenues to save during Amazon Prime Day 2021.

First, you can take advantage of the early offers made available by Amazon, such as buying from small businesses.

Second, Amazon Prime Rewards Visa Card or Amazon Prime Store Card cardholders can also earn 10% cash back on small business purchases during the duration of the 'Spend $10, get $10' promotion.

Amazon will likely offer increased cash back rewards on select items, so make sure to make your Amazon Prime Rewards card your default payment method.

Be sure to follow Insider Reviews on Facebook and Twitter, and bookmark our Amazon Prime Day page. During the lead-up and the sales event, our team of journalists will evaluate prices, compare competing sales, and highlight the best offers.

Also, make sure to sign up for our newsletter to get the best deals directly in your inbox.

Who can access Amazon Prime Day deals

Only Amazon Prime members can take advantage of this event. Signing up is easy, though, and a membership comes with many more benefits than just Prime Day deals access and free two-day shipping. New members can sign up for a free 30-day trial with full benefits before committing.

Last year, Prime members in the following countries participated in the event: the US, the UK, the United Arab Emirates, Turkey, Spain, Singapore, Saudi Arabia, Portugal, Netherlands, Mexico, Luxembourg, Japan, Italy, Germany, France, China, Brazil, Belgium, Austria, and Australia.

Where to find alternative sales during Amazon Prime Day 2021

Amazon Prime Day started as, unsurprisingly, an Amazon-centric sale event. Of course, that didn't stop other retailers from offering their own competing sales.

In the past few years, retailers offering competing sales included Walmart, Target, Best Buy, and Kohl's. This year should be no different. While we don't expect any retailer to match the breadth of Amazon Prime Day offerings, we found that the retailers generally match some of the "doorbuster" sales on stuff like iPads and TVs, and there are some better offers, as well.

Walmart's "Big Save Event" is live now, a day before Amazon Prime Day 2021, and lasts until June 23.

Target's "Deal Days" event also live now and ends June 22. From what we saw last year, we can expect comparable discounts and matched prices. Whether you're shopping for the latest tech or want to save on essentials, you can find bargains during Target's Deal Days.

Best Buy's "Bigger Deal Savings Event" is already underway until June 22 and includes up to $250 off select gaming laptops, up to 50% off small kitchen appliances, and up to $400 off select Samsung Galaxy phones. However, we expect even more deals in the coming days.

Which is better for deals: Amazon Prime Day or Black Friday?

It depends on what you're shopping for.

Amazon Prime Day is, first and foremost, an Amazon event. This means Amazon Prime Day offers the best deals on Amazon products. So, expect to see deals on Amazon Echo smart speakers, Fire TVs and streaming devices, Kindle e-readers, Audible, and Amazon Music Unlimited subscriptions.

Black Friday, on the other hand, doesn't "belong" to any particular store. This means that shoppers can expect sales and savings from more retailers, outside of those few that compete with Amazon during Prime Day.

Additionally, Prime Day is better for scoring deals on products selling for under $100 and products you'll buy more than once per year, like clothing, food, and beauty products, while Black Friday is for once-a-year and rarer purchases like TVs, gaming consoles, and laptops.

Google's Chromebook laptops have come a long way since they were introduced back in 2011. Nowadays, Chromebooks offer some of the best values in computing - offering terrific performance at affordable prices.

Of course, Chromebooks aren't for everybody. Chromebooks don't run on a traditional operating system, like Windows or macOS. Instead, a Chromebook is essentially a laptop made for browsing the web and running apps. This means that certain niche tasks are difficult, or downright impossible, to do, like 3D editing.

However, for those who need their computer for basic tasks like e-mail, browsing, and streaming movies, Chromebooks are worth considering, especially for the price.

Better still, we regularly see discounts on these already-affordable, Chrome-based machines. Here, we've gathered some of the best deals available.
