If you ever wished Black Friday was more than once a year, welcome to Amazon Prime Day 2021. During Prime Day, Amazon Prime members can get discounts, deals, and quick delivery on thousands of items from Amazon. And if you’re looking to upgrade your home entertainment system, it’s the perfect day to stock up on smart TVs, monitors, soundbars, and more. Amazon Prime Day is the 48-hour event where members can find massive discounts on these types of items and many more across the site.
It’s nearly impossible, however, to scour through all of the Amazon Prime Day sales in every single category, so we’re sorting through the best Prime deals for your home theater. We’d also suggest taking a look at a site like CamelCamelCamel to check on an item’s original price to make sure you’re making the best use of your Prime Day. During Amazon Prime Day, there are also “Lightning Deals” only available for a short period of time, so you’ll need to continually check on specific products you’re interested in (we’ll also update them here to try and help you nab the best prices before they expire). It’s important to remember, though, that Prime deals are only available to Prime members but it’s easy to sign up for a 30-day free trial here.
