🤔 Amazon Prime Day: what is it?
As in previous years, Amazon Prime Day is held over two days. For the 2021 edition, these are the dates of Monday 21 and Tuesday 22 June that were retained. During these two days, members of the Amazon Prime program can take advantage of exceptional flash sales and deals on millions of products.
The subscription costs 5.99 euros per month or 49 euros per year. It quickly becomes profitable given the many advantages it offers. Indeed, the Prime subscription allows its members to benefit from exclusive promotions but also from the Amazon Prime Video catalog, the Amazon Prime Now service, the Twitch Prime platform and an Amazon Music subscription.
Another strong point is the free and unlimited delivery in one day. It is essential and strongly recommended for people who are used to regularly ordering from Amazon. In addition, it is without engagement, which means you can cancel it at any time.
If you are an Amazon Business customer, you can also take advantage of Prime benefits through the Business Prime program. The latter is reserved for small and large companies, but also for local communities, public bodies and non-profit associations.
To benefit from it, you must take out a Business Prime subscription offered from € 50 per year, excluding VAT. The latter allows the use of the program up to three users. If your business has more users, you can opt for the € 150 per year plan which gives privileges up to ten users.

🤔Why Amazon has advanced its Prime Day?
Usually, Amazon Prime Day takes place in July. Last year, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, it was pushed back to October. This year, it will take place earlier this time. Amazon has indeed announced that its Prime Day 2021 will be held on June 21 and 22. The firm also said it will support merchants to help them promote their products.
🆓How to take advantage of Amazon Prime for free?
If you don’t want to purchase a monthly or annual subscription to Amazon Prime, and if you have never had one, it is possible to enjoy Amazon Prime free for 30 days. If you don’t want to pay in the following months, just go to your Amazon Prime account settings and unsubscribe.
Quick and easy handling that can be done right after subscribing to the trial offer: you will continue to benefit from it for 30 days and make sure you do not forget to do so before the first withdrawal.
🎁How to take advantage of a 10 euro voucher?
Like last year, Amazon intends to support small and medium-sized businesses hit hard by the economic crisis left in the wake of the coronavirus. With this in mind, the site offers a voucher of 10 euros for any purchase made in the Amazon store of a small or medium-sized business.
This voucher is only redeemable during Amazon Prime Day 2021, June 21-22. In order to qualify, you must spend € 10 at a merchant before June 20, 2021 and still be an Amazon Prime subscriber during Prime Day. Prime Day thus gives small and medium-sized businesses the opportunity to sell their products to millions of Prime members around the world. “
⛔How do I unsubscribe from Amazon Prime?
If you want to end your Amazon Prime membership, whether you are still in a trial period or have purchased a paid monthly or annual subscription, it’s very easy. Here is the process to follow.
If you are still in a trial period

This is normally automatic within 3 to 5 working days from the moment you have followed the steps and have not used your Premium account since you were debited for 49 euros for example to obtain delivery within one working day. In this case, we recommend that you click here to contact Amazon support.
🤷♂️Is it better to wait for the good deals of Black Friday?
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Prime Day takes place this year almost 5 months before Black Friday which will normally be held on November 26, 2021. If last year only 40 days separated the two events, that’s it. otherwise this year. As a reminder, Black Friday from the United States is a period of promotions which takes place on the last Friday of November and which precedes Cyber Monday.
The question of waiting until Black Friday is therefore legitimate for some Internet users. That said, in this particular context and the fact that Prime Day has been brought forward, better to take advantage of it if you can afford it. Some discounted items may no longer be available during Black Friday.
In general, promotions on Amazon are more attractive on Prime Day than on Black Friday. This is especially the case with recent products. On the other hand, if you are eyeing an older article, we advise you to reserve your assets for Black Friday.
👍What are the products to watch for during Prime Day 2021?
During Prime Day, Amazon highlights its products. This is the perfect opportunity to equip yourself with one of your Echo devices, one of your Kindle e-readers or even a Fire TV. These products are the subject of great reductions which allow them to be had at the best price of the year.
High-tech products are also no exception to Prime Day flash sales. If you are planning to buy a smartphone, tablet, or laptop, then now is the time to do so. A large number of manufacturers take advantage of the event to sell their stocks.
Among them we find Google with Chromebooks, Apple, Samsung, Xiaomi or even Huawei. There is also a good chance that the Apple iPhones of the previous year are at a reduced price (the iPhone 11) but also the MacBooks and the Galaxy S / Note.
Regarding the world of video games, don’t expect next-gen consoles to be on sale. With the shortage affecting the entire planet, it is indeed unlikely that we will see any offers on these during Prime Day. That said, subscriptions to PlayStation Plus and popular video games could be subject to attractive discounts.
Finally, we are also counting on major promotions on wireless headphones and earphones. Now will probably be the time to fall for a pair of AirPods Pro or a Bose or Sony headset without breaking the bank.
🔔How to take advantage of Prime Day 2021 good deals?
Prime Day lasts 48 hours. Compared to other major shopping events of the year, it’s relatively short. The offers are offered as part of flash sales which have a limited time. As parts in stock are only available for a few hours, they tend to sell out very quickly. In order to get your hands on the product that interests you, it is therefore advisable not to waste time and be responsive.
To do this, we advise you to check in advance, before the start of Prime Day, that your Amazon Prime account is still active and to have your contact details up to date. Also prepare upstream the complete list of articles that interest you. Thus, you will save time when the big day comes. You will not have to consult promotions that do not interest you.
