(Pocket-lint) - Amazon's Prime Day sale will start 21 June and end 22 June this year. The company shared a press release early Wednesday to confirm the dates.

Keep in mind Bloomberg previously said the annual, multiday event would be set for those two days. Plus, Amazon itself recently announced during its first-quarter earnings conference call that it would move Prime Day 2021 to the second quarter. More specifically, Amazon executives said Prime Day would land in June. It also said this year's sale will be a two-day event.

Add it all up, and we've known Prime Day is just weeks away.

Prime Day 2021 kicks off at 12am PDT (3am EDT) that Monday and will offer Prime members over "two million deals" worldwide across a range of categories. Amazon said you can also expect "never-before-seen exclusives" from Prime Video, Amazon Music, and Prime Gaming, and more. 

Amazon's shopping extravangza usually happens in summer, though last year's event was pushed to October due to the pandemic. Last month, Recode claimed Amazon could hold two Prime Day events in 2021. The first will be in June, obviously, but then the second could occur in October. 

For reference, in past years, Amazon held Prime Day on the following dates: 

  1. 15 July 2015
  2. 12 July 2016
  3. 11 July to 12 July 2017
  4. 16 July to 17 July 2018
  5. 15 July to 16 July 2019
  6. 13 October to 14 October 2020
