When is Prime Day?

Prime Day speaker deals 2021: Prime Day is coming

(Image credit: Amazon)

The dates haven't been officially confirmed by Amazon as yet, but we're predicting the event will take place in either June or July this year. Typically Prime Day has fallen in July, although last year it was bumped to October because of Covid. 

We'll keep you updated right here, and we'd recommend you bookmark Amazon's own Prime Day hub page.

Do I need an Amazon Prime subscription?

The short answer is yes. If you want to take full advantage of Amazon’s best Prime Day speaker deals you need to be a subscriber. You could always sign up for a free trial closer to the event, scoop up the best bargains, then cancel once you’ve had your fill. 

As of right now, a monthly Amazon Prime subscription will cost you £7.99/$12.99 (which can be cancelled at any time) and a yearly option is £79/$119.

But it's worth keeping an eye on non-Amazon retailers too as not all the action will happen within Amazon's four walls. In fact, you might not needed that Prime membership at all.

Where to find the best Prime Day speaker deals

Deals will be everywhere in the lead up to and during Prime Day, so much so that we’d forgive you for assuming they'll just fall into your lap. But it's worth doing your own research to uncover the very best offers. 

We’d recommend heading straight for Marshall, Amazon, Argos, Currys and John Lewis in the UK, and Marshall, Amazon, Walmart and Best Buy in the US. In our experience these have always been the best places to pick up a great speaker bargain.

If you really can’t be faffed with shopping around, give this page a bookmark and we’ll share all the best Prime Day speaker deals we can find right here.

How can I prepare for Prime Day?

Research, research, research! Doing a recce ahead of time is the key to bagging a bargain when the big day arrives. Narrow your choices down to a few so you know exactly what you’re looking for. Set a strict budget too. The deals can seem really enticing on the day, but don’t spend more than you’ve budgeted for.

Buying guides

These guides should help you zero in on the Prime Day speaker deals to look out for.

Prime Day speaker deal predictions

Whichever speaker you’re after, it’s likely you’ll find a good deal on it somewhere around Prime Day.

Marshall always gets involved with these major shopping events, so you can be sure to see some discounts, whether you’re after the Uxbridge Voice, or the classic Stanmore II Bluetooth.

We’re also hoping to see money off the portable Sonos Move, Bose Soundlink Mini II, the earth-shattering Ultimate Ears Wonderboom 2 and the Amazon Echo Studio, which tops our loudest Bluetooth speakers guide.

What else should I look out for on Prime Day?

If you've been thinking about picking up an Amazon Echo device, Prime Day could be the time to get a big discount. We're looking out for big discounts applied to the fantastic Echo Studio, in addition to the compact Echo Dot. Last year we spotted deals on Echo devices that included free subscriptions to their Music Unlimited streaming service, too.

Prime Day speaker deals: Last year's deal highlights

Not sure what to expect? Here are some of our Prime Day speaker deal highlights from last year:

JBL Boombox: was $399, now £189
You want volume? You got it. The JBL Boombox is fully loaded to fill a room with wall-to-wall rock. In the absence of live music, this thing is built to get close to the sort of volume more used to hearing at a gig.

Marshall Stockwell II Black And Brass: Was £169.99, now £115
Marshall introduced this wee box of magic earlier in 2020 and it's quite something. Portable and water resistant, the Black And Brass not only delivers great audio, but it charges lightning fast: Plug it in for 20 minutes and you'll get six hours of portable playtime.

Amazon Echo Dot: Was £49.99, now just £29.99
With smart control over your devices, as well as multi-room and multi-Echo pairing, the Echo Dot is a versatile smart speaker that gives you flexibility. It's available in four different colours, and its size means that it is equally at home as your speaker for playback while practicing, entertaining you while you cook or as a bedside alarm. At this price, we reckon most people bought two and built a stereo pair!

Marshall Kilburn II Portable Speaker: $249.99, now $199.99
The Kilburn II is perfect for listening to your music out in the fresh air, as it carries an IPX2 water-resistant rating, so it can cope with a splash or two of water. A single charge will also give you more than 20 hours of play time.
