Amazon Prime Day traditionally falls in July, but we’re being treated to an early sales extravaganza this year with a fast approaching June 21 kick-off. 2020 became the retailer’s most successful event since it first launched in 2015, but Amazon is promising an even bigger Prime Day 2021 with over two million discounts spanning 48 hours.
You don’t need to wait for premium gaming hardware to go cheap, however, as Prime Day deals are already starting to trickle before they pour. Roccat and Razer have slashed the prices of their peripherals, Thermaltake has cut the cost of its power supplies, and one of the best mouse pads for gaming is down by 15%. If last year is any indication, we should eventually see some reductions from Logitech, Corsair, Cooler Master, and a few other household brands, too.
Unlike Black Friday and Cyber Monday, you’ll need an Amazon Prime subscription to take part and access exclusive deals. Fortunately, there’s a 30-day free trial and it comes with a bunch of lasting benefits, like free delivery, entertainment from Prime Video, Music, and Reading, unlimited photo storage, and Twitch Prime.
Start padding your wishlist with the best early Prime Day deals in 2021:
BEST GAMING MOUSE DEALS
You’re going to want a reliable gaming mouse by your side when you’re in your next one vs. one, as it can mean the difference between winning or taking the L. Fortunately, plenty of brands have cut the price of several gaming mice ahead of Prime Day:
Best Mouse Pad Deals
A mouse is only as good as the surface it glides across, so it’s worth investing in a sleek mouse pad to complete your setup. Even better if it has an RGB trim to synchronise with the rest of your peripherals.
Best gaming keyboard deals
Whether you’re in the market for a gaming keyboard with mechanical keys, RGB lighting, and dedicated media keys, or want something a little simpler and compact, we’re sure to see reductions across all the big-name brands. The Corsair K95 is actually a step up from the flagship K70 that tops our list of best gaming keyboards, and now you can get it at a discount.
Best gaming headset deals
Gaining the edge over your opponents has never been easier, or cheaper, as the best gaming headsets keep getting better. Good quality sound means you can react to footsteps before you’ve been spotted, and a crisp microphone lets you relay that information to your team. Check out these post-Prime Day headset deals:
