Now: $1,879.98 | Was: $2,249 | Savings: $369.02 (16%)
Alienware machines are designed and tested specifically for high performance gaming, and their latest m17 R3 line tackles that with spades. A fully-featured gaming rig that kicks out up to 300 frames per second and running off the RTX 2070 SUPER, this is a future-proof rig that's well worth the price tag. The 1TB SSD is a godsend as well for the price. For over $360 off, you'd be hard pressed to find a reason NOT to buy this machine if you've been eyeing it.

What is Amazon Prime Day 2021?

Amazon Prime Day is the second largest sales day of the year (next to Black Friday), and is a two day sale that offers one of the largest selections of discounted products and deals all year. While Prime Day has become somewhat of a "Black Friday" type savings event, it's a sale that tends to focus more around Prime Day devices, smart tech and Amazon brands.

There are, however, supposed to be over 2 million individual products going on sale this Prime Day. So while the focus of what you'll see when browsing Prime Day deals is turned squarely on Amazon's line of products, just about everything you can think of gets a discount during the two day event. 

What day is Amazon Prime Day in 2021?

Amazon is holding its Prime Day sale on Monday, June 21 and Tuesday, June 22, and will officially kick off at 12:00 AM PT / 2:00 AM CT / 3:00 AM ET). 

While it was initially suggested that Prime Day would return to a July timeframe, a comment from the CFO during a quarterly earnings report this year lead many to believe it would be held earlier. That turned out to be very right, with Prime Day 2021 being bumped up a full month ahead of schedule.

Amazon has also been toying with the idea of adding an additional sale day later in the year, similar to Amazon Prime Day, yet held around the time of Black Friday. Two Amazon Prime Day sales in a single year? They just may be the ones crazy enough to do it!

Are Prime Day 2021 deals worth it?

The question of "Are Prime Day deals worth it?" gets asked quite a lot around this time, and quite frankly there's a yes and a no answer to this one. Depending on what exactly you're hoping to buy, Prime Day could be the perfect chance to get the best discount while it may be more beneficial to wait until Father's Day sales, Labor Day sales or even Black Friday / Cyber Monday sales.

That said, Prime Day deals are definitely worth if when it comes to electronics, smart tech and of course Prime services. Most Prime services, including Prime Video and Amazon Music Unlimited  get some pretty sweet offers for newcomers and Prime members alike.

Other home goods also should also see some solid sales during Prime Day. Last year, family games were some of the top deals of the year. Offers on Lego sets, board games and the like were abundant and offered savings of up to 40% on some of the hottest toys and games available.

So are Prime Day deals really worth it? Head on over to the Amazon Prime Day sale to find out!

How to find the best Prime Day deals this year

Shopping Amazon Prime Day can be an exhausting and overwhelming experience if you aren't prepared for what's ahead. While Prime Day 2021 is some of the most fun deal hunters will have all year, it can easily go bad if you aren't sure what of to look for – or how to look for it. Here are some helpful suggestions to shopping Amazon Prime Day 2021 and tips on how to save the most money this year.

Don't just shop at Amazon: This may be a weird one to hear, considering this is Amazon Prime Day we're talking about, but hear us out. Since Prime Day has gotten so dang popular over the years, many retailers out there are trying to get in on the action by running their own Prime Day-like sales alongside Amazon. If you've got a favorite store you like to shop at, don't be afraid to shop there as well. You'll be surprised what kind of discounts you can find.

Trust your gut on reviews: Here's the thing with Amazon's review system, it's not very good at filtering out useless and unhelpful feedback. If you head to almost any major product released in the past year, you'll see one star reviews with one sentence clearly expressing dissatisfaction and nothing else. You may even find "fake reviews" to help deter you from a good product or even steer you towards buying a bad product. If it's something you truly want and it's on sale, reviews may help but at the end of the day it's your money!

Compare prices: This applies to everything. Clothing, electronics, you name it. If it's on sale during Prime Day, chances are every seller who has it is dropping their prices. What you may not know, however, is that it may be cheaper in some cases to check out alternative sellers. Don't be afraid to click that "see other buying options" button from time to time.

Is Prime free on Prime Day?

If you have not had an Amazon Prime account before then, yes, you can get a free Prime trial for Prime Day (or for any other day). Amazon offers all customers a free 30-day trial of Prime, while students get a massively generous six-month free Prime trial. You can cancel at any time during the trial and you won't be charged a thing.

If you decide to pay for Prime once your trial ends, that'll cost you $119 a year. Student Prime accounts cost just $6.49 a month.

If you live in a household where someone else has a Prime account then you can form an Amazon Household and share some of their Prime benefits at no cost to yourself – including unlimited one-day delivery plus same-day delivery in eligible areas ,and access to those all-important Prime Day deals. You'll also get 30-minute early access to Lightning Deals with Prime Early Access.

Here's how to get your free Prime account and how to set up an Amazon Household.

Giving back on Amazon Prime Day

On Prime Day this year, Amazon’s charity initiative AmazonSmile, will offer Prime members the opportunity to double the usual donation rate (1% instead of 0.5%) to the charity of their choice throughout the entire 48-hour event.

For Prime members activating AmazonSmile in their app, there’s even more to gain for charities, as AmazonSmile will also donate 5% of the net purchase price (10X the regular rate) on the first qualifying AmazonSmile purchase on Prime Day. This special rate is for every Prime member who activates AmazonSmile in their Amazon App from 2nd June through the end of Prime Day 2021 on 22nd June.

It's worth noting that the donations come from Amazon and do not cost the customer or the charity anything.

Will there be a second Prime Day in 2021?

There have never been two Prime Day events in a single year before but the Recode report linked above says that Amazon explored the idea of a second Prime Day for Autumn 2021. Whether it will go ahead or not is not known. Recode writes: "It's unclear if such an additional event is still under consideration."

If there is second Prime Day in 2021, we'd expect it to take place in mid-October, so that it has a bit of distance from the Black Friday sales, which are likely to kick off up to a month ahead of Black Friday itself, which falls on Friday 26 November this year. Tuesday 12 and Wednesday 13 October would align to last year's delayed Prime Day, should Amazon wish to continue with the precedent it set in 2020, and following that second Prime Day sale event (if it happens) I'd expect to see early Black Friday sale deals start to drop from the beginning of November.

Is Amazon Prime Day happening in Canada and India?

Prime Day will not take place in June in Canada or India due to the current Covid-19 situation. Amazon confirmed to CNBC that it is pausing the event in both countries. It did not provide a rescheduled date. In the same report, CNBC says that Amazon confirmed that Prime Day will continue on schedule in the UK, US, the United Arab Emirates, Turkey, Spain, Singapore, Saudi Arabia, Portugal, Netherlands, Mexico, Luxembourg, Japan, Italy, Germany, France, China, Brazil, Belgium, Austria and Australia.
