What is Amazon Prime Day?

Prime Day is an event created by internet retailer Amazon. It’s a global shopping day, started for the company’s 20th anniversary in 2015, where some of the best deals on the web are on offer. It’s an event for Prime members, where thousands of deals are released at timed intervals. Many of Amazon’s proprietary technology goes on sale, including the Kindle and Echo Dot. However, it’s not just Amazon-branded items that will be up for grabs. The last few years have seen some amazing bargains across all of the site’s categories.

This year we’ll also see Prime Day Launches: exclusive new items and special-edition products for a limited time. Scroll down to see the latest VR deals and prices of popular headsets.

At the moment it’s hard to tell exactly what will be on sale. Usually, the weeks leading up to the event have some pretty fantastic bargains. However, last year saw some incredible savings on top VR headsets such as the HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, and PlayStation VR. Although many of these prices have fallen since last year, Prime Day could be a great opportunity to finally pick up a headset. With many new VR devices on the market, who knows what deals we’ll see? You can look at a comparison of the best VR headsets here on WhatVR to get prepared.

Prime Day vs PlayStation Days of Play

Even though Prime Day deals are usually excellent, Sony has recently been running their PlayStation Days of Play promotion in the US and UK. A wide variety of retailers have slashed prices on the PlayStation VR and associated accessories and games. It seems unlikely that Prime Day deals will be able to go any lower than the current Days of Play deals, which run from 8th – 18th June. However, even if Amazon can only match the prices, there’s never been a better time to pick up the PlayStation VR, a headset that we liked a lot.
