With the Prime Day 2021 dates now officially on Monday, June 21, and Tuesday, June 22, we’re expecting great things to come from the Prime Day monitor sales that will roll out next week as part of this year’s Prime Day deals. This annual blowout event is the best time of the summer to shop if you’re looking to buy a new monitor or upgrade your existing desktop setup, so read on as we take a look at what Prime Day monitor deals came last year, provide some sage advice as to whether you should buy a new monitor on Prime Day or hold out for a later sale, and highlight some bargains you can shop right now.
Prime Day monitor deals tend to be pretty good considering that technology is often the main focus of the Prime Day sales. That means it’s pretty likely you’ll see some good discounts on brand-name monitors this summer.
It’s likely we’ll see key discounts on big brand names like LG, Samsung, HP, LG, and Dell. Effectively, all the biggest names in monitor technology will be keen to discount their products during these Prime Day monitor sales. If you’re looking for specialist products like a 4K monitor or gaming monitor, these are likely to see price cuts, too.
Last year was a bumper year for Prime Day monitor sales, in part due to increasing numbers of people working from home. That meant we saw discounts across the board, encompassing both home office-based monitors and gaming devices. There were discounts on the likes of basic Dell and HP monitors but also big price cuts for Alienware curved gaming monitors, so there was something for every scenario.
Not all high-end devices were substantially reduced, but typically, Prime Day monitor sales brought with them discounts of at least 10% on many big-name brands with 20% or more available on select items if you got in fast.
The key consideration here is whether or not you need a new monitor right now. If your existing setup works well for you, only consider an upgrade if any Prime Day monitor deals you see are really that good (and on something you really want). Plan ahead with your budget so you know exactly how much you’re willing to spend. It’s very easy to spend hundreds of dollars on a monitor, but that doesn’t necessarily mean you need to.
