If you have just a few minutes to look at deals today, you are not going to want to miss these ones. From all-time low prices to products we haven't seen discounted in months, this list comprises the best offers which are available from each of the categories in this article.
Devices like the Amazon Echo and Fire TV Sticks always receive the best discounts during Prime Day compared to products from other brands, considering it is Amazon's exclusive event after all. Early Prime Day offers already brought a selection of them down to can't-miss prices. If you haven't met Alexa yet, what are you waiting for?
How's your TV at home treating you? If you're one of the many who have yet to discover the glorious clarity of media in 4K, maybe this Prime Day will help you change that. Whether you're searching for a humble 32-inch option or a massive 70-inch screen, there are a few interesting offers to consider in Amazon's selection.
Automating aspects of your home might sound expensive, but stepping into this next phase of home life is becoming more and more affordable every day. You could dip your toes in with something simple like a discounted smart plug, or dive into the deep end with something a bit more serious.
Unlocked smartphones have become far more popular in the past few years, and if you are looking to treat yourself to a new one, Prime Day may be just the time to do it. We have already begun seeing a bunch of deals hit, and there will be some great offers to come as well.
Everyone loves the Instant Pot and its status is well-deserved, however, there are a bunch of other must-see discounted kitchen appliances and gadgets which are worth your time too. Along with the essentials are a variety of enticing offers on products like cookbooks and food.
There are more than a few Thrifter deal-hunters who are obsessed with music; as such, we're always looking for the latest deals on audio equipment, accessories, and even vinyl records, and Prime Day will be no exception. Some great deals have already come down the pipeline with new ones being added daily as the big day approaches.
Last year's Prime Day saw deals on consoles like the PlayStation 4 Slim console and the Xbox One S. Will this year's event discount the upgraded versions of those consoles — the PlayStation 4 Pro and the Xbox One X respectively — or will Amazon focus on offering games and accessories instead? Only time will tell.
Some DIY and home improvement projects leave you with a huge sense of pride, once the job is finished and you can fully take in the fruits of your labor. Saving money on the tools you'll need to accomplish those tasks can feel the same way with deals this good.
Instead of heading over to your local Walmart or Target for products you always buy like paper towels, toothpaste, or vitamins, consider grabbing those products on Amazon. There are always deals to be had on everyday essentials, and the impending Prime Day event has unleashed a steady stream of exclusive discounts for Prime members. These are always great to look through if you're trying to find something to buy with an add-on item.
From Nerf blasters and Lego sets to Disney Princess dolls and baby strollers, this section features kid necessities and toys for all ages. We've already seen a slew of exciting toys on sale in the past few days, making now a perfect time to start stashing toys away for Christmas.
With stores like Best Buy, Target and Walmart shrinking the shelf space available for media like Blu-Rays, DVDs and CDs, Amazon is slowly becoming the best place to find sales on those items, and Prime Day has already had some early discounts on products like TV show seasons and vinyl records. The event is also offering price drops on digital media including digital HD films and e-books.
Though it may surprise you, Amazon is working its way up in the fashion world. Its exclusive brands such as GoodThreads and Buttoned Down rival premium brands with affordable prices already, so getting the opportunity to add some of these clothes to your wardrobe at even lower prices is a deal you'd be wise to check out.
Babies grow quickly, and they need lots of clothes, toys, and things to stimulate their minds. All of that can add up super quickly, but if you're an Amazon Prime member, you can easily reap the rewards of Prime Day and save big on tons of baby gear so that your little one can keep healthy and happy, and you don't have to tear your hair out when you see your empty wallet.
Be sure to check back often, as this page will be constantly adding fresh new deals. If you're looking for deals on Amazon's Echo hardware, Kindle Unlimited, Prime Pantry and more, we've got you covered.
To kick things off, the company slashed $100 on the price of the Echo Show, dropping it down to just $129.99. This is the lowest we've ever seen it go and makes it the same price as the smaller screened Echo Spot. We've seen Amazon offer Voice Shopping exclusive deals in the past during Prime Day, so if you don't have an Alexa device, or want another, this is a no-brainer purchase.
The Echo Dot is also down to $29.99, which is the lowest we've seen it hit this year.
Kindle Unlimited and Amazon Music Unlimited
If you've yet to try out Amazon's Music Unlimited service, you can get a four-month membership for just $0.99. That's right, all four months of unlimited access to all the music in the company's library (which is rather extensive) for just one dollar. Prefer to read books instead of listening to music? No worries, Amazon has three months of Kindle Unlimited available for $0.99 as well. This gets you access to over a million book titles, and you can read as many of them as your heart desires during that time frame.
You can also go all-in on a Kindle Unlimited subscription and save 40% when you checkout with the coupon code PDKU18. This drops the one-year subscription down to $80.32 and the two-year subscription to $143.86. If you want to just buy a few books, you can get $10 towards any Kindle, print, or Audible book purchase when you buy any Kindle book for $5 or more before July 15.
Through the end of July, Amazon is offering Audible subscriptions at just $5 per month to new and returning members. The deal will remain active for three months, after which the service will begin billing you at its regular monthly price of $14.95. You can also choose to cancel the service at any time if you decide it's not for you.
Amazon's In-house brands
Amazon has a bunch of its own brands, and right now it's offering 20% off home, kitchen, and other AmazonBasics gear, 30% off Amazon Elements multivitamins, and up to 25% off Stone & Beam furniture. There are a bunch of other Amazon brands from AmazonFresh to Mama Bear and Goodthreads that will also have discounted items available.
Twitch Prime Games and Gear
For the gamers out there, Amazon is offering a free PC game each day through July 18 via Twitch Prime. There are popular titles like Pillars of Eternity, Q.U.B.E, Hue, and more. You'll also get exclusive in-game look for Warframe and PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, and if you're looking to load up on Twitch apparel, the merch is 50% off right now.
Prime Credit Cardholder Offers
Normally, the Amazon Prime Store Card and Amazon Prime Rewards Visa Card extend shoppers 5% cash back on all Amazon.com orders. You can put the cash back rewards towards your monthly statements or a future Amazon purchase.
Last year during Prime Day, Amazon upped its cash back offer from the standard 5% to 20% on thousands of items exclusively for cardholders. That means smart deal hunters with an Amazon Prime Store Card or Amazon Prime Rewards Visa Card were essentially saving an additional 15% on Prime Day. Eligible items included GoPro action cameras and Garmin fitness trackers. In fact, Amazon's already running some bonus cash back offers for cardholders including 10% back on LG 4K OLED TVs and 20% back on the GoPro Hero action camera.
What's more, Amazon is sweetening the pot by throwing in a free gift card upon approval. New Prime Store cardholders will receive a $20 gift card, while Prime Rewards Visa cardholders will get a $70 gift card. Both the credit card and gift card are automatically loaded into your Amazon account following the approval process, meaning if you apply now both will be ready to use during the big event.
American Express Rewards points
We already know that we will see millions of deals across the world on Prime Day, but did you know that you could drop the prices even lower by just shopping with your American Express points? Amazon frequently offers an additional percentage off select purchases when you checkout and pay for part of the transaction using your Rewards points, and come Prime Day, the company is offering 20% off on a variety of items.
When it comes to saving money, this may be one of the easiest ways you'll be able to do it on Prime Day. The first step is to head to this page and click to activate the offer. Once the offer is activated, you'll want to make sure that your American Express card is one of the payment methods in your account, and that you have linked your accounts successfully. The last, and easiest part, is to find an eligible item, add it to your cart, and pay using at least one American Express Reward point.
This discount can be redeemed on any item physical goods that are sold and shipped by Amazon. You won't be able to redeem it on items sold by third parties, digital goods, or Amazon gift cards. It can only be redeemed once and has a maximum benefit of $100. The offer is currently live, so if there is something you want to buy now, you can save 20%. The promotion can end at any time, so be sure to activate the offer now and link your accounts to avoid missing out.
Of course, to take advantage of any of these offers you need to be an Amazon Prime member. If you aren't already, you can sign up for a free 30-day trial so you can access all these deals and save during the big event.
