What day is Amazon Prime Day 2021?

When is Amazon Prime Day 2021? Prime Day 2021 ran between Monday, June 21, and yesterday, June 22. USA TODAYPrime Day 2021 is over, but you can still get tons of amazing Amazon deals—shop them all

The bad news is it keeps going in and out of stock, but the good news is if you do manage to catch it at Amazon, it’s still down to Prime Day’s all-time low price!

Believe it or not, there are actually still so many Prime Day deals that are available at Amazon. Yes, Prime Day ended yesterday. But tons of third-party sellers still haven’t adjusted their prices back to normal. Some of the hottest remaining Prime Day 2021 deals include the #1 best-selling myQ smart garage door opener on sale for under $25 (plus get a $40 credit with the Amazon Key promo), the newest Nest Thermostat on sale for an all-time low price of $99.98, the flagship Nest Learning Thermostat for $199, a popular Windows 10 laptop and 128GB microSDXC bundle for just $219.99, a sleek and luxurious rainfall shower head for just $15.11, a huge $80 discount on the Apple Watch Series 6, Apple’s 10.2-inch iPad for just $299, the hot new Roku Express 4K+ for just $29.99 and two more Roku deals, TP-Link Kasa mini smart plugs for an all-time low of $6.07 each, an incredible 2K camera drone that folds up as small as a smartphone for just $59.39 with coupon code PDP6DEAL, the popular Yeedi k600 robot vacuum for just $89.99, and more. You can even get the stunning YABER Pro V7 portable home theater projector that normally costs $600 on sale for only $259.99 — that’s a whopping $50 cheaper than it was on Prime Day!

On top of all that, there’s another wildly popular deal we need to tell you about.

The Depstech WF010 borescope is best described as a crazy wireless camera that lets your iPhone or Android device see inside just about anything. Just snake the semi-rigid tube into anything and the WF010 beams live video feed to your phone. You can record video or capture still photos, and you can even use attachments like a little hook to help fish jewelry or keys out of tight spaces. It’s an awesome accessory to have on hand, and it was on sale for $28.85 instead of $36 for Prime Day 2021.

That is the lowest price ever for this model, and it’s a tremendous value. Incredibly, it’s also still listed at that price on Amazon right now! All of Depstech’s other borescopes are also back on sale with Prime Day’s deep discounts, but we definitely expect these deals to disappear soon. Don’t miss out!

NEW YORK (Reuters) -The S&P 500 shook off concerns about a more hawkish Federal Reserve to post a record high this week, but activity in some areas of the market indicates concern over potential volatility ahead of key economic data and corporate profit reports. U.S. President Joe Biden’s embrace of a $1.2 trillion infrastructure spending deal has helped buoy indexes to fresh records, after worries that the Fed may unwind its easy money policies sooner than expected led to a brief swoon earlier this month.

Amazon turns in record Prime Day, despite lower growth

Prime Day 2021 generated solid sales growth for Amazon but had less of an impact than the 2020 event, industry observers say.

Amazon’s gross merchandise sales on Prime Day, held June 21 to 22 this year, totaled $11.19 billion worldwide, up 7.6% from $10.39 billion on Oct. 13 and 14, 2020, according to estimates from Digital Commerce 360. The e-commerce research and media firm said Prime Day 2020, which Amazon said it pushed back due to COVID-19, saw a more than 45% sales gain from $7.16 billion in 2019, when the annual sales event was held July 15 to 16.

BofA Global Research estimated that Amazon tallied $9.55 billion in total Prime Day gross merchandise value (GMV), up 7% from $8.95 billion in 2020, which represented a 54% increase from $5.8 billion in 2019. BofA broke down its Prime Day 2021 GMV estimate into $5.6 billion in first-party sales (direct from Amazon), up 5.5%, versus $3.95 billion from third-party sellers (via Amazon’s marketplace), up 10% year over year.

“We currently estimate 28.6% year-over-year GMV growth for Amazon in 2Q 2021, which would be 24.2% without Prime Day,” BofA Global Research analysts Justin Post and Michael McGovern wrote in a June 23 research note. “Overall, Prime Day results seem to point to relatively lower growth than usual, but still good enough to support solid 2Q GMV growth on a tough 2Q comp. We see potential for Amazon to gain market share in e-commerce in a post-pandemic recovery.”

Digital market researcher eMarketer had forecast Amazon’s Prime Day 2021 GMV sales to reach $11.79 billion globally, marking 19% growth from $9.91 billion in 2020, which represented a 43% gain from $6.93 billion in 2019.

Seattle-based Amazon hasn’t reported Prime Day 2021 dollar sales figures. However, the e-tail giant noted that it achieved record volume for this year’s event, with its third-party (3P) sellers outpacing its first-party (1P) growth, in part lifted by the Amazon-funded “Spend $10, Get $10” promotion for marketplace purchases. Published reports peg the base of Prime members at roughly 200 million worldwide and 150 million in the United States.

“Members shopped and saved more this year than any other Prime Day, including in best-selling categories around the world like electronics and Amazon devices,” Amazon said in a blog post on Wednesday. “Prime Day 2021 was the biggest two-day period ever for Amazon’s third-party sellers, nearly all of which are small and medium-sized businesses, growing even more than Amazon’s retail business. Prime members in 20 countries shopped more this Prime Day than any previous Prime Day and scored deep discounts across home, fashion, beauty, and electronics. Prime members purchased more than 250 million items worldwide and saved more than any Prime Day before.”

BofA estimated that Amazon sold 255 million items during Prime Day 2021, up from 240 million in 2020 and 175 million in 2019. Amazon said its top-selling categories worldwide for Prime Day this year were tools, beauty, nutrition, baby care, electronics (including Amazon devices), apparel and household products. The best-selling products in the U.S., Amazon reported, were the Waterpik Electric Water Flosser, Orgain Organic Plant-Based Protein Powder, 23andMe Health DNA Test, iRobot Roomba 692 Robot Vacuum and Instant Pot Duo Plus 6 Quart 9-in-1 Pressure Cooker.

“This year’s Prime Day came only eight months after last year’s Prime Day, a much shorter time period than the 15 months between Prime Day 2019 and 2020. Amazon also did not add any new countries to Prime Day this year, after adding two last year and four in 2019,” BofA’s Post and McGovern noted. “Amazon did disclose that 250 million items were sold, which represents a 20% two-year CAGR from 175 million items sold in Prime Day 2019, but likely limited growth versus 2020. Given the shorter period of time since the last Prime Day, the lack of new countries added, and the lack of new disclosures, we believe this was a relatively lower growth Prime Day versus prior years.”

The average Prime Day order this year was $44.75, down from $54.64 on Prime Day 2020 and $58.91 on Prime Day 2019, reported Numerator. The consumer data specialist’s Prime Day Tracker, in tallying final results for the Amazon event, found that 11% of households who shopped Prime Day placed five or more orders and 55% made two or more orders. On the dollars side, 52% of Prime Day shoppers spent more than $100, for an average household spend of $106.41. Sixty percent of Prime Day orders were for $30 or less, while 10% exceeded $200.

Numerator’s analysis is based on 30,806 Prime Day orders from 12,956 unique households and 3,132 verified Prime Day buyer surveys. Of Prime Day shoppers polled, the top categories cited for purchases were health and beauty (28%), consumer electronics (28%), household essentials (27%), apparel and shoes (27%), home and garden (26%) and smart home devices (17%). Almost one in five (16%) of Prime Day shoppers said they purchased groceries from Amazon.

More than half (53%) of Prime Day buyers only considered Amazon for their purchase, Numerator said. In comparison, 26% considered Walmart/Walmart.com, 21% Target/Target.com, 10% warehouse clubs, 9% department stores, 8% Best Buy/BestBuy.com and 7% grocery stores.

According to Digital Commerce 360’s analysis, nearly 51% of the top 250 North American retailers a “widespread” sales event on their e-commerce sites during Prime Day 2021. Among the top 100, including Walmart and Target, 57% offered a wide-ranging sale and 35.7% held a competing Prime Day sale, including similar language such as “Prime,” “two-day sale” or “no membership required,” with the latter targeting the requirement of Prime membership to access Prime Day deals, Digital Commerce 360 said.

Citing data from Adobe Analytics, BofA Global Research said U.S. e-commerce sales during this year’s 48-hour Prime Day event climbed to $11 billion ($5.6 billion on day one and and $5.4 billion on day two), up 6% from $10.4 billion in Prime Day 2020. That would signal a key achievment for Prime Day, as it would exceed the total for Cyber Monday 2020.

“If recent trends are any sign of what’s ahead, total U.S. online spend for Prime Day promises to surpass last year’s Cyber Monday, when U.S. e-commerce hit $10.9 billion to become the biggest shopping day of 2020, according to the latest Adobe Digital Economy Index,” Taylor Schreiner, director at Adobe Digital Insights, said last week in a blog post on Prime Day predictions. “Overtaking Cyber Monday will be a major milestone after last year’s Prime Day spending of $10.4 billion (total for both days) exceeded the $9 billion for Black Friday and the $5.1 billion for Thanksgiving Day.”

The best Amazon Prime Day deals you can still get today | Engadget

Engadget 25 June, 2021 - 10:45am

The 10.2-inch iPad is on sale for $299 right now. It's the most affordable of Apple's tablets and we like its improved performance, familiar design and support for the first-generation Apple Pencil.

The MacBook Air M1 laptop is down to $899, which is a record low. If you're looking to upgrade your notebook, this is one of the best options for most people right now. The Air M1 earned a score of 94 from us for its incredibly fast performance, excellent keyboard and trackpad, good battery life and lack of fan noise.

Apple's Mac Mini M1 is down to $600 thanks to an automatically applied coupon. This has Apple's latest chipset along with 8GB of RAM and either 256Gb of 512GB of storage. It's a good replacement for an aging Mac Mini or an upgrade from another desktop you've run into the ground over the past few years.

Apple's colorful iMacs with 8-core GPUs are $50 off right now at Amazon, bringing them down to $1,450. We gave this desktop a score of 89 for its remarkable performance thanks to the M1 chip, lovely 24-inch Retina Display and its thin-and-light design.

The Samsung T7 portable drive in 500GB has dropped to $70, or $30 off its normal price. It has the familiar design that the previous T5 drives have but it supports read speeds up to 1,050 MB/s and write speeds up to 1,000 MB/s. We also like that it comes with USB-C to C and USB-C to A cables, so you can use it with basically any laptop, smartphone or other machine you may have.

Google's Nest Audio smart speaker has dropped to $75, which is $25 off its normal price. We gave it a score of 87 for its great audio quality, minimalist design, stereo sound capabilities and Google Assistant chops.

The latest Nest Hub is down to $80, which is $20 off its normal price. This model just came out a few months ago and includes a new sleep tracking feature. We liked its speedier performance, clearer and louder audio and its subtle, pleasant design.

One of our favorite budget robot vacuums, the Anker Eufy RoboVac 11S, remains on sale for $130. That's $100 off and a return to its record-low price. Not only is this one of the slimmest robo-vacs we've tried, but it cleans hard floors and carpets thoroughly and it comes with a remote that you can use to manually direct the vacuum, set schedules and more.

LG's 2021 C1 OLED 4K TVs have dropped in price, so you can grab the 55-inch for $1,497, or about $300 off its starting price. The C1 is the mid-tier lineup that includes the company's latest processor, HDMI 2.1 support and NVIDIA G-SYNC and FreeSync compatibility.

My Best Buy members can get the 48-inch LG CX OLED 4K smart TV for $1,250, or $250 off its normal price. It's free to sign up for My Best Buy and it's worth it to get a bit of extra money off all of the retailer's current sales. OLED sets are the ones to get if you care about having the deepest blacks and most vibrant color reproduction, and this model has LG's a9 Gen 3 processor, support for Dolby Vision, Atmos, HDR10 and HLG plus Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa integration.

Both Amazon and Samsung have the 55-inch Neo QLED 4K smart TV for $300 less than usual, bringing it down to about $1,500. But if you go through Amazon, you can use the code 3L7A4244KXXK at checkout to get $100 in promotional credit to use at Amazon in the future. This set uses mini LED technology to create intense pictures, and Quantum HDR technology produces vivid colors. You're also getting built-in Alexa and motion enhancements up to 4K 120Hz.

The Nest WiFi pack with one router and one extension point is down to $189, or $80 off its normal price. We gave this mesh system a score of 84 for its unobtrusive design, simple installation process and built-in smart speaker capabilities.

The Roku Streaming Stick+ is $10 off right now, bringing it down to $39. We consider this to be the best all-around streaming stick for most people thanks to its easy installation, simple on-screen interface, wide variety of supported streaming services and its handy private listening feature.

The latest Roku Ultra is down to $70, or $30 off its normal price. This is the most powerful Roku set-top box you can get, and it supports 4K streaming, HDR and Dolby Vision, plus a handy voice remote that lets you search for content more easily.

The Beats Solo Pro are back on sale, this time for a record-low of $149. We liked these on-ear cans for their excellent sound quality, good ANC and hands-free Siri capabilities.

Samsung's Galaxy Chromebook 2 is on sale for $449 at Best Buy, or $599 for the upgraded, Core i3 model. While not an all-time low, it's still a good sale on a much improved Chromebook. We gave this version a score of 82 for its impressive screen, good keyboard, loud speakers and solid performance.

Eufy's SpaceView baby camera kit is down to $140 thanks to a $20 coupon you can clip on the product page. It has a large 5-inch display with a clear 720p feed, night vision, two-way audio, can pan 330 degrees and tilt 110 degrees for a full view of the room, has a 1.5 to 2x zoom and audio and motion alerts. And we like that it works on a closed system, so there’s no risk of it being hacked through your WiFi connection.

A two-pack of Anker's 20W Nano fast-charger is 20 percent off when you clip a coupon on the product page, bringing the final price down to about $25. Not only are Anker charging devices reliable, but we also like this one for its compact design — it's roughly 50 percent smaller than Apple's own 20W adapter. And while this charger is great for iPhones, it can also be used to quickly power up other USB-C devices, too.

On the heels of the new Thermapen One announcement, the Thermapen Mk4 has been discounted to $69. It's the best instant-read thermometer we've used so far —the backlit display makes it easy to read in almost any situation and the display rotates depending on how you're holding the pen. Plus, you never have to remember to turn it off because the pen automatically turns on when you pick it up and will shut off after some time of no use.

Buy Thermapen Mk4 at ThermoWorks - $69 

One of our recommended VPNs is running a good sale on a two-year subscription. You can sign up for NordVPN for only $89 for the first two years, which comes out to $44.50 per year. We like NordVPN for its speed, its no-logs policy, the thousands of servers it has to choose from and that one account supports up to six connected devices.

Are any of you out there wondering whether or not some of those fantastic deals made Amazon’s list of Prime Day 2021’s best-sellers? Well, we now have our answer because Amazon has revealed the list of Prime Day’s best-selling products.

We bet you can’t guess the #1 best-seller in the United States during Prime Day 2021. No, it wasn’t an Instant Pot or an Amazon device like a Kindle. It was actually the Waterpik Electric Water Flosser, which was on sale with a deep discount. That Prime Day discount is now gone, but interestingly, the #2 best-selling from Amazon’s big sales event — Orgain Organic Plant-Based Protein Powder — is still on sale with a 15% discount!

Also of note, Amazon said the #1 best-selling product globally from Prime Day 2021 was the Fire TV Stick 4K. If you missed out on that sale, it’s worth noting that the Prime Day deal is gone but you can still save 20% if you hurry.

These were the five best-selling Prime Day deals in the United States, according to Amazon:

Orgain Organic Plant Based Protein Powder (still 46% off!)

Here are some more details from Amazon’s note to the press on Wednesday morning:

Best-selling categories worldwide for Prime Day 2021 included tools, beauty, nutrition, baby care, electronics including Amazon Devices, apparel, and household products.

Top-selling products worldwide for Prime Day 2021 included iRobot Roomba 692 Robot Vacuum, Keurig K-Slim Coffee Maker, Apple Cider Vinegar Gummy Vitamins by Goli Nutrition, and Crest 3D White Professional Effects Whitestrips.

Prime members worldwide saved while gearing up for back to school purchasing more than 600,000 backpacks, 1 million laptops, 1 million headphones, 240,000 notebooks, 40,000 calculators, and 220,000 Crayola products.

Tens of millions of customers viewed Prime Day product demonstrations and try-on hauls, heard directly from creators, and more during Amazon Live live streams throughout Prime Day.

And here are some more tidbits from Amazon’s Prime Day 2021 wrapup press release:

Members took advantage of incredible savings on Amazon Devices throughout Prime Day.

Fire TV Stick 4K with Alexa Voice Remote was the most popular item purchased during Prime Day with customers purchasing more Fire TV 4K streaming media players on Prime Day this year than any previous Prime Day.

Customers purchased a record-setting number of Fire TVs, from brands including Toshiba and Insignia, during Prime Day and the two weeks leading up to this year’s event.

Customers purchased hundreds of thousands of Amazon Fire tablets and Fire Kids tablets this Prime Day, including the all-new Fire HD 10 tablet, Fire HD 8 tablet, and Fire HD 8 Kids tablet.

In the days leading up to Prime Day, Alexa helped make shopping easier for tens of millions of customers, including by proactively finding deals on items in customers’ carts and enabling them to get important reminders.

Nordstrom Just Dropped Some Insane Fitness Deals Ahead Of Anniversary Sale

Yahoo Lifestyle 24 June, 2021 - 01:03pm

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale has historically been every luxe online shopper's favorite holiday. It's the best time of the year to restock on your high quality essentials or finally grab those designer wish-list items you've been thinking about for months. Even better: Some of the best deals in past years have been on fitness gear. Last year, deals included $60 off brand new Nike sneakers, over $30 off Spanx's iconic faux leather leggings, and 50 percent off Adidas leggings, just to name a few.

If you can't wait to shop those deals, the great news is that you don't have to. Though Nordstrom's 2021 Anniversary Sale will happen from July 28th to August 8th (starting early, on July 16th, for cardmembers), the retailer already has some great deals on bestselling workout gear and fitness apparel. Some insane deals include 40 percent off Free People leggings and Wacoal's high-support sports bra, and 50 percent off Alo Yoga's cult-favorite, high-waisted leggings.

Now that summer is upon us, there's never been a better time to stock up on some cute two-piece sets and leggings, whether you plan on working out in them or just lounging and brunching in them. Usually, workout gear (like socks, sports bras, leggings, and deodorant) can get expensive to restock. But with deals this good, feel free to hit "Place Order" on all the you've been eyeing in your (virtual) cart without any guilt.

See below for 20 of the best fitness deals that Nordstrom dropped early for all the fitness gear and athleisure lovers ahead of the 2021 Anniversary Sale, including up to 50 percent off summer essentials like biker shorts, sneakers, and hoodies:

Athleisure is one of the greatest gifts fashion has given us in years, and one of the best things to come out of that is the return of biker shorts. These ribbed ones are just as trendy as they are comfy.

These Nike sneakers are brand new, so the fact that they're on sale is kind of a big deal. Most sizes of the air-cushioned, breathable mesh paneled shoe are under $100 right now.

How Amazon took this made-up shopping ‘holiday’ from zero to $11 billion

Deseret News 23 June, 2021 - 11:01pm

It’s quite a feat to take a made up shopping “holiday” from zero to $11 billion in six years.

But that’s exactly what Amazon just accomplished this week in a two-day, online shopping frenzy that generated more revenues than 2020’s record-breaking Black Friday ($9 billion) or Cyber Monday ($10.8 billion.)

Amazon Prime Day launched in 2015 to celebrate the company’s 20th anniversary and currently offers insider deals to its 200 million Prime subscribers who pay $119 a year for memberships that include one-day shipping, access to streaming content on Prime Video, discounts at Amazon-owned Whole Foods grocery stores and other perks.

Widespread home isolation under COVID-19 restrictions helped drive 50 million new Prime subscribers since last January to the company Jeff Bezos launched from his Seattle garage in 1994. And while not all of the $11 billion in online shopping revenue flowed to Amazon (and the company is famously reticent when it comes to releasing its own revenue numbers) analysts with Adobe Digital Economy Index team reported the $5.6 billion spent on Monday, along with the $5.4 billion on Tuesday, pushed the 2021 Prime Day growth for all retailers more than 6% over last year’s $10.4 billion haul.

Within this year’s Prime Day sales volumes, some Amazon competitors saw big jumps over last year, with Adobe reporting large retailers (over $1 billion in annual online sales) up 29% over 2020 and small retailers (less than $10 million in annual online sales) getting a 21% lift.

This “halo effect,” where other retailers work to siphon off some of the millions of shoppers Prime Day draws to Amazon’s site, continues to gather steam even in a year that industry watchers said was notable for less dramatic sales prices and tactics than previous iterations.

“U.S. retailers continued to benefit from strong shopping momentum on the second Prime Day, catapulting total online spend to $11 billion for both days,” said Adobe Digital Insights director Taylor Schreiner in a statement. “This is despite relatively muted discounts across most categories, suggesting that there’s a pent-up demand for online shopping as consumers look forward to a return to normalcy.”

Himanshu Mishra, a researcher and professor of marketing at the University of Utah’s David Eccles School of Business, said Amazon’s success in cultivating a sense of mild panic among shoppers has helped the e-commerce giant build Prime Day to its current levels.

“One of the main drivers of Amazon’s success with Prime Day is its ability to create a perception of scarcity,” Mishra said. “Deals may or may not be outstanding, but they invariably disappear in a short time. So they capitalize on the fear of missing out.”

Mishra also believes that even though Prime Day’s halo effect provides a short-term boon for some retailers, the biggest winner is Amazon.

“It will increase sales of retailers who partner with Amazon, but it is unlikely to represent major gains for Amazon’s competitor,” Mishra said. “As it has done in past years, it will only lead to bigger market share for Amazon.”

Data from marketing analytics website eMarketer shows Amazon is on track to grow its 2020 share of all U.S. online retail business of 39.8% to 40.4% in 2021. And while that .6% may seem minuscule, it represent billions in new revenue and is predicted to be the largest gain for any retailer in the coming year.

BYU marketing professor Jeff Larson said he’s not surprised by Amazon’s success in building an artificial shopping holiday and points to the company’s high focus on three critical tenets: build a large group of regular customers, make transacting as simple and painless as possible, and effectively share knowledge about products and discounts with that audience.

“Clearly, Amazon has accrued a huge amount of power,” Larson said. “And that’s because whoever controls the end user, the consumer, controls the market.”

The methods and strategies Amazon has employed to build that market dominance are coming under increasing scrutiny as federal lawsuits and multiple federal legislative proposals aiming to curtail the power of U.S. big tech companies continue to move forward.

But while Democratic and Republican officials have found some bipartisan moments in their shared criticism of alleged anticompetitive practices of U.S. Big Tech companies, the conduct being questioned has not dissuaded consumer interest in their products.

In an opinion piece for The Hill, Joshua Brown, industry commentator and CEO of Ritholtz Wealth Management, wrote that legislators comparing the conduct of companies like Amazon, Apple, Facebook and Google to the market power abuses of early 20th-century industrialist robber barons with names like Andrew Carnegie and John D. Rockefeller is simply off the mark.

“The monopolies of past eras of American history attracted the ire of antitrust proponents because, upon attaining a certain size within their industries, they had become abusive to everyday consumers who found themselves with a limited amount of choice,” Brown wrote.

“What’s tricky about today’s alleged monopolists is that they’ve actually used their size to do the opposite. Consumers have not been harmed by Amazon’s dominance over e-commerce, they actually love it.”
