If you’ve been anxiously awaiting news of Amazon’s biggest shopping event of the year, you won’t want to miss out on the latest Prime Day 2021 announcement.
The online retailer recently revealed that their global shopping event will take place on June 21 and 22 in many countries across the globe. Unfortunately, Canadians won’t be able to shop the sale just yet as Amazon has paused Prime Day in Canada for now.
Details around when Prime Day in Canada will return are still scarce, but that doesn't mean you can't still start prepping for its eventual return.
Amazon has stated that Prime members saved over $1.4 billion during Prime Day 2020, so you know that you can expect plenty of deals and discounts upon its return.
Looking back at 2020’s top-selling items is also a way to gauge what you might find included in this year’s sale, so we’ve done the work for you and gathered some of the most-purchased products from around the world. From Canada to Japan, take a look at Prime Day 2020’s bestselling global items.
