Amazon Prime Day 2021 isn’t happening in Canada, as the online retail giant announced last month it was being postponed here, due to COVID-19.

But on Wednesday, Amazon announced Prime Day is happening in the U.S. and other nations, starting on June 21 at midnight PDT (3am EDT), until June 22.

Prime Day is Amazon’s biggest shopping day offering exclusive discounts for Prime members only.

Amazon’s Prime Day 2021 will be taking place in the U.S., the U.K., the United Arab Emirates, Turkey, Spain, Singapore, Saudi Arabia, Portugal, Netherlands, Mexico, Luxembourg, Japan, Italy, Germany, France, China, Brazil, Belgium, Austria, and Australia.

“Prime Day is a celebration of our Prime members, and we’re excited to bring members great deals across an incredible selection, whether members want to shop and save on top brands, buzzworthy items, or small business collections,” said Jamil Ghani, vice president of Amazon Prime. “Since we launched Prime Day in 2015, it’s delivered great new ways to shop, gift, watch movies and TV, and even dance, and we’re excited to carry on that tradition.”

While Canadians will be missing out on Prime Day, there might be some unofficial sales happening anyways on the interwebs to compete. Stay tuned.
