The year’s biggest deals event is here. Well, almost.
Amazon has officially announced that Prime Day will take place on July 12-13 this year. The two-day sales event features hundreds of deals on entertainment, tech, home goods, fitness and fashion — all in one place. While the majority of deals will go live on July 12 at 12 a.m., there are already dozens of early-bird deals that are already up on the site. In the meantime, you can bookmark this page (amazon.com/primeday) for the latest details on the event, and to make sure you have the full 48 hours to snag the best deals.
As always, you need to be an Amazon Prime member to access the offers. Amazon does have a Daily Deals tab on their site any customer can shop through year-round, but come July the best sales won’t be available to non-Prime members. An Amazon Prime membership costs $14.99 a month (or $7.49 a month for students). But if you aren’t already a member, you can sign up for a 30-day free trial here.
So, what types of deals can you expect on Prime Day? Last year saw huge price slashes on Apple devices such as AirPods, Macbooks, iPads and Apple Watches; Amazon devices like Roku Sticks, Fire TVs and Echo Dots; and coveted home goods like Dyson vacuums and Nespresso machines.
We’re particularly excited about sales in home entertainment. Premium soundbars from brands like Sonos and JBL will likely see significant price drops, in addition to projectors, projector screens and smart TVs. And gamers, worry not: consoles such as the PS5 and Nintendo Switch will also likely see steep discounts.
Check in here for the latest updates on Prime Day, and a running list of the best deals. In the meantime, check out the best Amazon device deals for Father’s Day.
