When is Amazon Prime Day 2021?

Prime Day 2021 is live through June 22.

Will Walmart hold a sale during Amazon Prime Day 2021?

Walmart is holding its Deals for Days event now through June 23. It started a day before Prime Day and lasts one day longer.

What deals does Walmart have during Prime Day 2021?

Here are some deals you can expect in the next few days:

How will Walmart Plus membership play into Amazon Prime Day 2021?

Right now, there aren’t any event-specific perks that Walmart Plus members will get. However, they will reap the same benefits they do year-round when shopping the sale, from free same-day delivery to gas discounts to the newly-added Rx for less.

If you’re interested in trying the membership, there’s a 15-day free trial. If you sign up now, you’ll be covered during the Deals for Days event.

15-Day Free Trial (small)

Are there benefits to shopping from Walmart during Amazon Prime Day 2021?

The first major benefit to shopping from Walmart during Prime Day is that you don’t need a membership to get the deals. If you are already a member of Walmart Plus, then that means you can enjoy free two-day shipping on your orders.

Another perk is that Walmart has many physical stores where you can pick up your order if you don’t want to wait to receive your package at home.

Amazon Prime Day, on the other hand, is only for Prime members and access to the event is one of many membership benefits. Amazon offers a 30-day free trial if you want to access Prime Day deals, in addition to Walmart deals, this week.

Amazon’s newest Ring Video Doorbell is 25% off for Prime Day 2021

If you buy through our links, we may earn money from affiliate partners. Learn more.

Amazon Ring Video Doorbell - Prime Day 2021 Deals on Ring Video Doorbell

Table of Contents: Masthead Sticky

Amazon Prime Day 2021 ends at the end of the day today, and there are still huge deals for a huge range of products, devices, and services across almost every category you can think of. One of the big products that get tempting deals on Prime Day 2021 are Amazon’s own Ring smart home devices, like smart video doorbell and home monitoring cameras.

Just remember that, if you’re trying to get a Prime Day deal through Amazon, you’ll need to be an Amazon Prime subscriber or start a free trial. Also, be sure to follow our Prime Day liveblog for all of the latest deals as they come in.

The Best Amazon Prime Day Ring Video Doorbell deals

Ring’s Video Doorbells can be easily added to almost any front door, even those that don’t have an existing doorbell or those that aren’t wired to power a doorbells, as some models come with a rechargeable battery option. With a Ring Video Doorbell, you can monitor what’s going on outside your front door at anytime and anywhere, as long as you have a data or internet connection. You also get alerts when someone rings your doorbell, and you can see and communicate with that person through the Ring mobile app.

On Prime Day, we’re only seeing one deal for a new Ring video doorbell – the newest Wired model released in 2021. It comes with everything you’d need or want in a video doorbell, but users who want higher resolution and more advanced features may feel a little left out here. Otherwise, there are some bundled options that come with Ring cameras or the Chime that extends the doorbell chime to your home, rather than just your smartphone.

Video Doorbell Wired (2021) (medium, Preferred: Amazon)Video Doorbell Wired with Ring Chime (medium, Preferred: Amazon)Video Doorbell Wired bundle with Ring Indoor Cam (medium, Preferred: Amazon)

The top Amazon Prime Day Ring Camera deals

Ring’s indoor and outdoor cameras let you check in on your home from anywhere, as long as you have a data or internet connection, even when you’re away from home. For indoor use, the best option is the standard wired Ring Indoor Cam. If you’re looking for a battery-powered camera that doesn’t need wired power, inside or outside, the Ring Stick Up Cam is a great choice.

Stick Up Cam (medium, Preferred: Amazon)Spotlight Cam (medium, Preferred: Amazon)Floodlight Cam Wired Plus (2021) (medium, Preferred: Amazon)

Which Ring Video Doorbell should you buy? We break down the models.

The newest Wired Ring Video Doorbell is the cheapest and simplest option you can buy, but it still comes with pretty much everything you’d want in a smart video doorbell, including streaming at a sharp 1080p resolution, night vision, two-way communication, and alerting you to motion via your phone. It uses the existing power wiring from your old doorbell if your home is already wired for that, so it’s a better value buy than the standard Ring Video Doorbell or the Ring Video Doorbell 4 that include rechargeable batteries (as well as the option for using existing doorbell power wiring). Regardless, the standard Ring Video Doorbells don’t have deals so far on Prime Day 2021.

The Ring Video Doorbell Pro 2 is a tough sell at its high price tag, especially since it’s not getting the Prime Day treatment. The camera has a wider field of view, but it’s tough to justify its cost when the non-Pro models are so good and inexpensive.

Remember that you’ll need to subscribe to the Ring Protect Plan to record and keep captured video for up to 60 days.

Are smart doorbell cameras worth it?

Speaking from my own experience, I personally questioned whether I really needed a smart video doorbell when I installed one a few years ago. Since then, I’ve found my smart video doorbell to be an invaluable and essential part of my house. The ability to see what’s going on outside my front door when someone rings my doorbell, or when it detects movement outside, is priceless.

It’s been especially reassuring while I’m away from my house. I’ve been able to check in to my home’s primary point of entry from anywhere at any time, even overseas, as long as I have an internet connection. If a smart video doorbell camera is within your budget, it’s a worthwhile purchase.

The best Amazon Prime Day 2021 Ninja Foodi deals include $100 off the Ninja Foodi Deluxe XL Cooker and Air Fryer

Ninja Foodi Pressure Cooker - Prime Day Ninja Foodi Deals 2021
We recommend the Ninja Foodi for its its high-performing pressure-cooking and air-frying functions.

Table of Contents: Masthead Sticky

Amazon Prime Day 2021 is here and runs through June 22. We’ve found major discounts across Amazon’s product selection, including kitchen appliances and pressure cookers like the Ninja Foodi.

While multicookers are popular for their many functions, the Ninja Foodi takes it a step further with nine useful cooking features for preparing delicious foods. You can pressure cook, air fry/crisp, sear/sauté, bake, broil, steam, slow cook, dehydrate, and make yogurt using the Ninja Foodi. It’s been so popular that other multicooker brands like Instant Pot have released their own versions.

Home and Kitchen reporter James Brains recently tested the cooker, and loved its pressure-cooking and air-frying functions but doesn’t recommend using its slow-cooking function. Brains remained impressed with many of the Foodi’s other functions, and you can get it at the best price during this year’s Prime Day sale. In order to shop these great deals, you’ll need to be an existing Prime member or sign up for a membership.

What to consider when buying a pressure cooker

What you want to look for in an electric multicooker or pressure cooker is contingent upon what you’ll use it for, of course. There are plenty of great models on the market, and some do certain things better than others.

While we appreciate Ninja for its value as a combination cooker, one of our favorite multi-use appliances is the Instant Pot Duo Crisp Pressure Cooker with Air Fryer (8 Qt), which took home top spots in our guide to the best pressure cookers and our guides to the best air fryers and the best sous vide machines. We love it because it can replace major cooking appliances and takes up very little room. If you’re looking for the best of the best, we recommend the Instant Pot.

Amazon Prime Day 2021 has finally arrived, and that means more deals. The Amazon shopping event takes place on June 21 and 22 and includes tons of discounts on Apple devices.

The best Prime Day deals on Apple products so far include discounts on the AirPods, AirPods Pro, iPad, and iPad Air. But remember that deals tend to sell out quickly, so it’s a good idea to act fast if you find a deal you’re interested in.

Many deals are exclusive to Amazon Prime members, and you can sign up for a free 30-day trial if you don’t already have a subscription. Prime memberships start at $13 a month after the trial ends.

The best Macbook deals for Amazon Prime Day 2021

Starting in early 2020 Apple launched a number of new MacBook Air and MacBook Pro models.

The key difference compared to older models, is that the latest MacBooks include Apple’s M1 processor, a chip that offers faster performance. We recommend the more affordable Air for most people, but the Pro is still a great buy for shoppers who crave a bit more power, slightly longer battery life, and superior speakers and microphones. You can read our full comparison of the latest MacBook Air and MacBook Pro here.

The newest MacBook Air (256GB) is back down to $900 with coupon. That matches the lowest price we’ve seen so far, and it’s not clear if it will dip down any lower once Prime Day starts.

You’ll also want to keep your eye on the price of the MacBook Pro with Apple’s M1 Chip. Earlier this year, the price went down to $1,099, which is $200 less than its full price. It’s on sale right now for $149 off, so a better deal could be available on Prime Day.

The best Prime Day deals on AirPods and Beats headphones

Prime Day 2021 is the first since the launch of the AirPods Max, Apple’s premium over-ear headphones. The AirPods Max saw a $50 discount just ahead of Prime Day, but the price has already jumped back up for most color options. That said, the Sky Blue model is available for a modest $20 discount. We’re hoping to see bigger deals once Prime Day arrives.

The AirPods Pro, standard AirPods, and AirPods with wireless charging case have seen many deals over the years, so we expect big discounts on Prime Day. You can check out our full breakdown of the best AirPods if you’re torn between different models.

The AirPods Pro have maintained a price around $200 from October 2020 through May 2021. The lowest we’ve seen them sell for was $169. You should expect a similar discount for Prime Day 2021.

Amazon typically sells the AirPods with a wireless charging case for $150 to $170. Meanwhile the standard AirPods typically sell between $120 to $140. We recommend jumping on any Prime Day 2021 deal prices that are lower than those ranges.

Aside from Apple’s headphones, there are a number of Beats-branded headphones to keep an eye on during Prime Day 2021. These include the Beats Solo3 Wireless Headphones which have already dropped to $120.

The best Apple Watch deals for Prime Day 2021

There are a number of Apple Watch models to choose from but we recommend the 40mm, Series 6 (GPS) model thanks to its health features. We didn’t see the Series 6 fall in price during Prime Day 2020, but it fell by nearly $50 the following month. We recommend any deal that brings the Series 6 below $350.

Other Apple Watch models include the Series 3, the lower-cost alternative to the Series 6 with a wide range of bells and whistles, as well as the Apple Watch SE. The Apple Watch SE hasn’t dropped below $230 on Amazon while the Series 3 hasn’t fallen below its May 2021 price of $198.

The best Amazon Prime Day deals on iPads

Apple’s latest iPad Pro models, starting at $799, launched in May. Despite being so new, the 11-inch iPad Pro is already available for $50 off for Prime Day 2021.

There are also older iPad models that have seen frequent sales on Amazon, including the 2020 iPad Air, the 2020 iPad, and the 2019 iPad Mini. These older iPad models lack Apple’s new M1 processor but they still make good buys for most people. The 2021 Pro models, on the other hand, are really only necessary for creative professionals that need top-notch performance.

The best Prime Day 2021 deals on iPhones

Apple’s iPhones rarely get discounts on Prime Day. The new iPhones were just announced in October 2020, and carriers and retailers will likely discount older models to make way for the new ones.

It’s unlikely that the deals will be on Amazon, though, as the online retailer only sells models that are locked to Cricket Wireless. However, Best Buy is offering a deal that takes $200 off the iPhone 12 Mini, although that’s contingent on a carrier activation with Verizon.

Some older models to keep an eye on include the iPhone 11, the iPhone 11 Pro, the iPhone 11 Pro Max, the iPhone XS, and the iPhone XS Max. You can check out our guide to some of the best iPhones for every budget in 2021 ahead of your next iPhone purchase, as well.

The best deals on Apple accessories for Amazon Prime Day

Apple accessories for the iPhone, iPad, and other products can add up quickly. And now that Apple no longer includes power adapters in the iPhone’s packaging, there’s even more of an incentive to look for discounts on chargers and other accessories this Prime Day.

We have yet to see any deals on high-profile accessories like Apple’s MagSafe Duo charger, which powers up an iPhone and Apple Watch wirelessly at the same time. But there are some discounts on 20-watt adapters that bring faster charging to the iPhone and Apple’s standard Apple Watch charger.

The EarPods with a lightning connector – Apple’s wired headphones option – have been anywhere between $14 to $20 since May 2020. Any deal price lower than that would be worth jumping on during Prime Day.

The best Prime Day deals on Apple AirTags

Since the AirTags launched in April 2021, Amazon has yet to substantially drop their price. The AirTags typically start at $29 and can help you find lost items with Apple’s FindMy app.

Despite no traditional discounts, you can always save $17 by purchasing the AirTags in a four-pack rather than buying four individually.

The AirTags might be too new to get a big discount on Prime Day, but we’ll keep this page updated with any deals if we see them.

The best Apple TV deals for Amazon Prime Day 2021

While it’s unlikely we’ll see major deals on Apple’s latest Apple TV models and accessories during Prime Day 2021, we’re already seeing nice discounts on older models.

This includes the Apple TV 4K (first- gen) and the Apple TV HD (fourth-gen) featuring the original Siri Remote (first-gen). While these models are still quality options for streamers, the newer versions include an improved Siri remote (also sold separately).

When sold for the same price, the newer Apple TV models are a better buy, but if the old versions get big discounts on Prime Day, they could present a better value.

When is Prime Day?

Prime Day 2021 began on June 21 and runs through June 22. Prime members can take advantage of non-stop deals on a variety of products and services over the two-day sale.

This year’s Prime Day comes roughly two months after Apple announced new iPads, AirTags, colorful iMacs, Apple TV 4K (second-generation), and more at its April event. It’s unclear what new Apple products will be on sale during Prime Day 2021, but expect to see deals on older models at the very least.

How to shop for Apple products

Before buying new Apple products on Prime Day, you should keep in mind that discounts tend to appear more often on previous-generation Apple devices. For example, a product like the Apple TV 4K (first-generation) is more likely to go on sale since the new second-generation model was just released in May 2021.

When comparing prices, you should also keep in mind that Apple offers discounted refurbished products on its own website, including previous generations of the MacBook Pro, iPhone, and more. Apple’s trade-in program can also give you additional money toward a refurbished product, as well, when you send Apple your old device.

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 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 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 free $10 gift card promotion and the small business offer have 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’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.

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 are seeing significant drops during Amazon Prime Day 2021. Shoppers can find 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 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 deals on 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

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.

Prime members can get some of the lowest prices of the year on Amazon devices and other products, like headphones, TVs, robot vacuums, and kitchen appliances, from leading brands.

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.

Shopping on Amazon Prime Day 2021 can be a little overwhelming. To help, we’re answering all the most common questions our readers have about the sales event, including important dates, competing sales from Best Buy, Target, and Walmart.

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.

As an early Prime Day 2021 deal, the Bose QC35 II wireless noise-cancelling headphones are already $50 off

Bose QC35 II Prime Day 2021 deals

Table of Contents: Masthead StickyQuietComfort 35 II (medium, Preferred: Amazon)

Prime Day 2021 is just a few hours away, and Amazon has already launched an early deal on one of our favorite pairs of Bose headphones.

The Bose QuietComfort 35 II are on sale for $249, which is $100 off their full retail price and $50 less than their typical $300 street price. Though a good deal, the current discount doesn’t match the all-time low of $199 we saw during Black Friday last year.

The Bose QC35 II deal is currently available to all Amazon shoppers, but most Prime Day deals are exclusive to Prime members. Amazon Prime costs $13 a month or $120 a year. Prime members get access to tons of special discounts throughout Prime Day. The sales event runs from June 21 through June 22.

How do the Bose QC35 II compare to the Bose 700?

The QC35 II were first released in September 2017, which makes them almost four years old. That’s not too old in headphone years, but Bose did release a new set of wireless noise-cancelling headphones called the Bose 700 in 2019. This newer model usually sells for around $379.

Bose didn’t discontinue the QC35 II, which means they’re not considered the “old” model. Rather, the Bose 700 are in a newly minted “ultra-premium” category, while the QC35 II exist alongside them as the standard premium option.

It was around the release of the Bose 700 that the company reduced the retail price of the QC35 II from $350 to $300, and now they’re even cheaper thanks to Prime Day.

Bose’s QC35 IIs are still excellent headphones – especially for this deal price

With the QC35 II headphones, you’re getting deep, rich sound with a healthy dose of bass and balance of mids and highs. They’re also incredibly comfortable with soft ear pads and plenty of room for your ears. Their noise cancelation is top-notch and only bested by Bose’s own 700 headphones, and perhaps Sony’s most recent WH-1000XM4.

While the QC35 II are excellent, they’re not entirely perfect. For one, I expected better build quality for a pair of headphones that used to cost $350. It’s not bad, but they’re made of light and hollow plastic that can easily scuff over time.

Something else to note is that the QC35 II use the old microUSB standard for charging. This could be annoying if you’ve been ditching microUSB devices for products that use the newer USB-C standard. One extra cable you have to carry around isn’t too much of a drawback, however.

There’s no such thing as the perfect device, and this discount more than makes up for any complaints.

Is Best Buy holding a competing Amazon Prime Day 2021 sale?

This year, Best Buy is holding its own Bigger Deal Savings Event to compete with Amazon during Prime Day 2021. It’s also holding Flash Sales during those days, which are daily limited-time discounts on select products.

The sale starts June 15 and lasts through June 22; it features promotions and discounts on laptops, TVs, audio, kitchen appliances, and much more.

What deals will Best Buy have during Amazon Prime Day 2021?

When it comes to tech and small appliances, Best Buy has historically matched Amazon Prime Day’s all-time lows. This year looks to be more of the same, though we expect the best deals to crop up during the tail end of the sale when Prime Day is live.

Best Buy’s Bigger Deal Savings Event promotions include up to $250 off select gaming laptops, up to 50% off small kitchen appliances, and up to $400 off select Samsung Galaxy phones. Browse all of the event’s ongoing deals here.

TVs, pressure cookers, video games, smart home gear, streaming devices, and headphones are categories that we typically see discounted to their best prices. You can also expect to see brands like Instant Pot, Dyson, Roku, Google Home, and JBL.
