Prime Day is popping off on June 21 and June 22, but you shouldn’t limit your search to only Amazon for a good deal over these days. Keep your eyes peeled, as other retailers will crash the party.
It’s almost like clockwork every year. Here in the UK, once Prime Day starts, Currys PC World will start an epic deals event; John Lewis will promote some big gadget discounts; Game will cut the price of some (yep, you guessed it) games, and you’ll see the likes of Box, Laptops Direct and Dell come out of the woodwork with offers of their own.
Put simply, retailers will play a game of chicken with Amazon to see whether they can get a better price and get one over on the company, which makes it the best time for you to buy gadgets, like laptops, phones, monitors and more.
What are the best anti-Prime Day deals?
So, what are the best anti-Prime Day deals? Good question! We’ll find out more about what other retailers have up their sleeves when Prime Day kicks off on Monday, June 21.
I recommend that any Prime Day deal you see, go and search for that same product elsewhere. That way you can be 100% sure that the price you’re getting on Amazon is the lowest. In fact, get the CamelCamelCamel Chrome extension, which does the hard work for you.
But for now, we’re already seeing some movements from the key retailers that will probably fight Amazon with decent deals across laptops, gaming and portable audio.
