Best Amazon Prime Day deals

by John_A

Prime Day, Amazon’s huge yearly sales event, is finally upon us. The company’s ongoing battle to compete with other annual sales has largely been successful, with last year’s Prime Day becoming Amazon’s biggest retail day yet and netting more worldwide product sales than Black Friday. Prime Day deals include just about everything from home appliances to electronics, including Amazon’s own ever-growing lineup of gadgets and smart home devices, offering massive savings for Prime members to enjoy.

As there are thousands of products going on sale, we’ve hand-picked some of the best Prime Day deals available for this year’s event so you don’t have to spend hours scouring Amazon for the hottest discounts. Note that these deals will only last until the end of Tuesday, July 11, and are only available to Prime members.
