Amazon Prime Day – With Prime Day moving back to July as the unofficial start of the Back To School sale season, Amazon’s shopping holiday has grown to become one of the summer’s most anticipated occasions.
Unbeknownst to you, Amazon Prime Day is a two-day online shopping extravaganza during which the online juggernaut unveils millions of discounts for Amazon Prime customers.
During Prime Day, discounts are typically available on everything from cases to clothing to computers to cars.
The majority of other online businesses provide significant discounts during Prime Day in an effort to entice customers while their wallets are still open.
Prime Day is no longer just limited to Amazon. As the whole e-commerce industry joins in on the frugal free-for-all, even things not typically sold on Amazon are poised for a price reduction.
When is Amazon Prime Day?
Although we don’t know, by the end of the month, we ought to have a general idea. Amazon has disclosed the overall Prime Day timeline at their investor announcements for the past two years.
Last year, they stated that “Prime Day will take place in July in more than 20 countries.” In 2021, they stated it would be “later in Q2,” indicating June.
Even though it’s only mid-April, more information about Prime Day should be available by the end of the month, or at the latest, at the start of May.
Amazon Prime Day was held on July 12–13 of last year, and although we anticipate it will happen again in July, there is no assurance that it will.
Mid-July used to be the time for Amazon Prime Day from 2015 to 2019, but the epidemic in 2020 forced a change.
After the epidemic and a global shipping issue put a chokehold on supply that summer, Amazon Prime Day 2020 took place October 13–14, 2020. The next year, it was June 21–22, 2021.
The first time a July Prime Day was hosted again was in 2022, though Amazon held a smaller version of the event dubbed Amazon Prime Early Access on October 11 and 12, 2022.
Even though Prime Day originated in the US, it was held in 20 countries last year and featured more than 2 million bargains.
There are a lot of bargains to sort through, but unlike in the past, Prime Day offerings rhyme.
What Deals Are Planned For Amazon Prime Day?
During or close to Prime Day, almost everything on Amazon is discounted in some way. Discounts will be offered on all types of Android phones and peripherals, as well as smart TVs, tablets, computer accessories, and PCs.
As Amazon targets parents who need a Chromebook that won’t break the bank or break with a little misuse, Prime Day has historically been a terrific time to purchase one.
Between spring and fall smartphone debuts, summer is the smartphone doldrums, so if you know what you want, there’s a decent chance Prime Day will have it at a discount.
Amazon has already reduced the price of the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra by hundreds, and we anticipate that it will do so once more on Prime Day, in addition to offering even greater discounts on the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Flip 4 in advance of their successors.
Because Samsung often hosts an Unpacked event for its foldable and wearables in August, Prime Day is a great opportunity to purchase a foldable phone at a competitive price before the release of the newest cutting-edge version.
Speaking of Samsung, Prime Day 2023 will probably be a wonderful opportunity to get a Galaxy Watch 5, especially because it hasn’t seen many reductions over the $30-$50 range.
This is because the company has released new watches in August for the past two years. The Galaxy Watch 4 reached a low point of $140 during Black Friday, and if we’re lucky, the Galaxy Watch 5 might also fall under $200.
Since offers for the Pixel Watch have been scarce, we may expect to at least receive a fair discount on Galaxy Watches.
Although deals on smart home items seem to be ongoing, the best models will be receiving more significant discounts.
Around shopping holidays, Philips Hue typically offers some good bundles, and Google’s Nest brand frequently offers discounts on both bundles and individual devices.
The popular wired Nest Doorbell (2nd Gen) is one to keep an eye on, though you can be sure that every Ring and Blink camera on the market will see a sale.
Deals on titles for the PS5 and Xbox Series X, as well as Switch and PC, should be significant even though we might not see significant discounts on the PS5 or Xbox Series X.
And microSD cards are absurdly affordable, so you should definitely pick one up whether you need one for your Switch, your dashcam, your phone, or a real camera.
It’s also expected that various inside and outdoor security cameras will go on sale.
There will undoubtedly be tens of thousands of sales on anything from coolers to clothing to chargers, but since we’re an Android blog, we’ll be gathering all the tech bargains you need to see.
We’ll be looking through them all, from ridiculously low pricing on USB-C cables to lightning discounts on 4K TVs.
Does Amazon Prime membership require you to participate in Amazon Prime Day?
Yes. Only Amazon Prime members can take advantage of Amazon Prime Day deals, but you are not required to pay $140 for a yearly subscription.
Around the event, you can join up for a free Amazon Prime trial and still get access to the offers. Once the event is done and your gifts have arrived, be sure to set a reminder to terminate your Prime membership. Alternatively, you may elect to keep it.
These days, Amazon Prime offers much more than simply free delivery and access to the site’s top deals.
Amazon is constantly packing its subscription with new services in an effort to keep customers coming back year after year.
These services range from special Whole Foods discounts to access to hundreds of thousands of movies and TV shows with Amazon Prime Video to a respectable Amazon Prime Music collection and beyond.
