I know this is a Prime Day/Amazon live blog, but I’d be doing you a disfavor as deals editor if I didn’t mention the Best Buy Black Friday in July sale. Yeah, it’s a silly name and I normally roll my eyes and Black Friday in July sales, but our deals writer Millie has picked out 65+ good sales at Best Buy that will end today. Check out her full roundup below. Also, here are 5 Best Buy sales you won’t find at Amazon (because they’re Best Buy exclusives).
Best Buy Black Friday in July sale
Back to school season is here! If you’re shopping for a new laptop (that can double as a good gaming rig) Amazon has some noteworthy sales. It has systems from Acer, Lenovo, MSI, and Asus on sale from $599. If you’re on a particularly tight budget, our UK computing editor Dave is a fan of the Lenovo IdeaPad Gaming 3 for $599. It sports a 15.6-inch FHD display, AMD Ryzen 5 6600H CPU, 8GB of RAM, 256GB SSD, and an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050 GPU. That should be sufficient to play many games at low to medium settings (and get school work done too, of course).
Gaming laptops: deals from $599 @ Amazon
This is the kind of deal that’ll save you money now and down the line. Amazon has discounted various Brita water pitchers with deals from $14 for a small pitcher or $26 for the XL dispenser. A 24-pack of Poland Springs costs about $10 here in New York, so if you drink a lot of water (like I do) this deal will pay for itself very fast. Yeah, you’ll need to buy new filters every 3 months or so, but it’s better than the dozens of plastic bottles you’ll otherwise go through.
Brita Water Filter sale: deals from $14 @ Amazon
I’ve been saying I need a new vacuum for the past year. This is the deal that might make me pull the trigger. What I really like about this vacuum (other than its cool looks) is that it features a washable HEPA filter that can capture allergens and bacteria. My current (and antiquated) Dirt Devil barely picks up dirt. It also has a wand and hose that’ll make it easier for me to get to hard-to-reach spots. It’s been cheaper before ($359 in 2020), but this would be its second-lowest price of all time.
Dyson Ball Animal 2: was $599 now $393 @ Amazon
I’m 100% team iPad. However, I realize that even on sale — iPads are expensive. Enter the Amazon Fire Max 11. This is Amazon latest and greatest Fire Tablet designed to compete with the iPads and Pixel Tablets of the world. It sports a 2K 11-inch (2,000 x 1,200 pixels) display, 4GB of RAM, and 2.2Ghz Mediatek chip. In our Amazon Fire Max 11 review we said it’s the best tablet Amazon has ever made. If you’re happy with Amazon’s apps (like Prime Video or the Kindle app) and just want a nice big tablet to watch videos or read books on, the Fire Max 11 is a great choice.
Amazon Fire Max 11: was $229 now $149 @ Amazon
Amazon Fire Max 11 w/ Keyboard: was $319 now $239 @ Amazon
G’afternoon, all! Deals editor Louis back this afternoon for another day of Prime Day deals. These are Prime Day’s final hours and I’m shocked to see a lot of good sales still available (like those epic price lows on the Apple Watches). However, things are starting to sell out. So if you see something you’re interested in — don’t wait too long because you might miss the deal. On that note….on to the deals!
Hair’s a deal that’s hot from the desk of colleague Kate Kozuch. It’s a blow drying brush that she swears buy and it just went on a very rare sale. Right now you can snag the Drybar Double Shot Oval Blow Dryer Brush for just $108 on Amazon, which is 30% off the regular price.
The Drybar Double Shot Oval Blow Dryer Brush is a premium-feeling hair styling tool that lets you achieve salon-worthy blowouts at home. The 2.44-inch barrel is great for creating volume in long and thick hair. The Drybar Single Shot Round Blow Dryer Brush is on sale for $106, too, and it’s ideal for shorter hair, bands and more defined curls.
Drybar Double Shot Oval Blow Dryer Brush: was $154 now $108 @ Amazon
Sometimes the best Prime Day deals don’t come from Amazon. Case in point: The Xbox Series X is just $449 at Dell right now. That’s $50 off and the lowest price we’ve ever seen for this console.
The Xbox Series X features 12 teraflops of graphics power, 16GB of RAM, 1TB SSD, and a Blu-ray drive. This stylish black box can run games at 4K resolution and 60 frames per second without breaking a sweat. Yes, the PS5 has better selection of exclusive titles, but as you’ll see in our Xbox Series X review and list of best Xbox Series X games, this console has plenty to offer.
Xbox Series X: was $499 now $449 at Dell
🖼 + 📺 = Awesome. How about a TV that’s truly different? Samsung’s The Frame is a work of art and QLED TV in one, displaying artwork when you’re not enjoying the best streaming services. Right now you can get Samsung’s The Frame for just $987, down from $1,497, which is the lowest price we’ve seen yet.
In our Samsung The Frame review, we liked the 4K picture quality, solar-powered remote and all the customization options. Plus, it comes with a slim-fit wall mount. The viewing angles could be better, but this is a fantastic TV at a great price.
Samsung 55-inch The Frame: was $1,497 now $987 @ Amazon
Prime Day FREEBIES! You won’t find lower prices than free on Prime Day. And that’s exactly what I’m talking about with Rory Mellon’s roundup of things you can get for free on Amazon Prime Day. Yes, you need an Amazon Prime membership in order to score some of the free stuff listed, but if you’re a member you should definitely take advantage!
The freebies include 40+ PC games through Prime Gaming, 3 months of Audible, a year of Grubhub Plus and more.
See: 7 things you can get for Free on Prime Day
OUR TOP PICKS! It’s day 2 of Prime Day and it’s time to have some fun. That’s why I polled the entire staff to ask them about their favorite Prime Day deals. From our streaming editor and audio editor to our TV editor, there’s plenty of great recommendations that should help you find great discounts on some of our favorite gear.
My favorite deal comes from colleague Henry T. Casey, who recommends these awesome self-gripping cabled ties for just $9 in a 50-pack. Be sure to check out all our top picks!
Grabbing the Sony LinkBuds S for $128 at Amazon for Prime Day would be a smart pick for anyone looking for some user-friendly true wireless earbuds with active noise-canceling (ANC) who’s also got a Prime subscription. Sadly this isn’t a deal for normal Amazon customers.
When we reviewed the LinkBuds S, we really enjoyed how comfortable they were to wear, and how easy they were to control, especially with the ambient awareness mode that adjusts the ANC depending on what the noise around you is like. Sony’s WF-1000XM4 earbuds remain the top pick, but for value-minded buyers, the LinkBuds S could be the better buy.
Sony LinkBuds S: was $199 now $128 @ Amazon
You can buy the iLife V3s Pro robot vacuum cleaner for just $99 at Amazon this Prime Day, the lowest price it’s ever been seen at. Excellent if you need a cheap but effective way to keep your house clean with minimal supervision.
Once set up, the V3s Pro will easily tackle the dirt on your floors and carpets, particularly on hardwood floors and when facing off against pet hair. In fact, it’s the top model on our best robot vacuums for pet hair guide, so you can’t do better for an automated cleaner if you’ve got a dog, cat or other furry friend around the house.
iLife V3s Pro: was $159 now $99 @ Amazon
It’s not a big discount, but the best offer on a Nintendo Switch right now is for the Neon Blue/Red Switch, currently $284 at Amazon. From what we can see, all other Switch models are at their regular price for Prime Day.
We adore the Nintendo Switch for its dual home/portable console purposes, and for its convenient multiplayer set-up thanks to its JoyCon controllers acting as either one or two inputs depending on what you need. And of course, this being a Nintendo console, you get access to some of the biggest names in gaming, such as Super Mario, The Legend of Zelda and more.
Nintendo Switch (Neon Blue and Neon Red): was $299 now $284 @ Amazon
If you’re looking for a family tablet this Prime Day, then know that you can get a 256GB iPad 2022 for $529 thanks to Amazon.
This isn’t the base model, but since that’s only got 64GB storage by default, you’re better off with this more spacious 256GB version. Otherwise it’s all the same. That means you get Apple’s newly redesigned entry-level iPad, complete with a larger display, support for the original Apple Pencil or Magic Keyboard accessories, and a FaceTime camera mounted on the long side of the screen. It’s perfect for making video calls, streaming video, browsing social media or playing games.
iPad (2022, 256GB): was $599 now $529 @ Amazon
We at TG require plenty of coffee to keep us going through the onslaught of deals that Prime Day brings. If you too need a steady supply of caffeine, then take a look at this Breville Barista Express deal for $549 at Amazon
Our Barista Express review is already a glowing endorsement of this product, thanks to excellent grind adjustment, an effective built-in steam wand and the option for four different brew basket sizes depending on how much espresso you want. But with $200 currently taken off the standard price, we like it even more.
Breville Barista Express Espresso Machine: was $749 now $549 @ Amazon
Credit to a spotlight article from TG’s senior security editor Anthony Spadafora for this one! If you’ve got an Xbox Series S, but wish it could be a bit more portable, than take a look at the UPspec xScreen, on sale for $159 at Amazon.
This plugs into the ports on the back of the console to give it an 11.6-inch display, in the style of a chunky laptop. You can then use it as a miniature gaming rig, or even take it on tour with a big-enough external power supply. All you need is your regular Series S AC adapter and you can run both the Xbox and the xScreen simultaneously.
xScreen: was $199 now $159 @ Amazon
Deal events like Prime Day are always a good time to go hunting for a new pair of AirPods to accompany your iPhone, iPad or Mac. That’s why we’ve got a whole page dedicated to the best Prime Day AirPods deals.
Check that page for the latest details, but as I’m writing this, here are the best offers on AirPods we can show you:
For Prime members, Amazon’s offering the Samsung Galaxy S23 for $599, in your choice of four colors. The other Galaxy S23 models are on sale too, but this one’s definitely the best value of the bunch.
For your money, you’ll get a compact 6.1-inch Android phone with excellent cameras, including a 50MP main sensor and a 3x telephoto zoom module, a bright and colorful display, and a strong chipset that outperforms the majority of other Android phones on the market right now. This is why we call it the “best Samsung phone for most people” on our best phones guide, and don’t hesitate to recommend it to you now.
Samsung Galaxy S23 (128GB): was $799 now $599 @ Amazon
There’s always great offers to be had on electric toothbrushes over Prime Day, and this year is no exception. You can now get the Oral-B iO Series 9 Electric Toothbrush for just $237 at Amazon, down from $299, and that includes three replacement brush heads.
Toothbrushes won’t come much more advanced than this — there are seven cleaning modes in total to choose from, including Daily Clean, Whitening, Sensitive and even Tongue Clean. But, what sets it apart is its AI tracking capabilities. By connecting this toothbrush to your phone via Bluetooth, it can track your cleaning pattern to ensure a thorough clean. The display gives this electric toothbrush a quality feel as well, plus the included travel case is a handy addition.
Check out the best electric toothbrushes if you need a design suited for a kid, or one which also functions as a flosser.
Oral-B iO Series 9 Electric Toothbrush with 3 Replacement Brush Heads: was $299 now $237 @ Amazon
I’d personally recommend this Prime Day deal. You can now get the Revlon One Step Volumizer Hot Air Brush for just $33 on Amazon. I’ve been using its predecessor for the past year — the results are so good that it’s replaced my regular hair dryer. It even stops me from using the straighteners so much.
Combining hot air with its rounded brush shape, it straightens and curls as you run it through your hair, making it great for de-frizzing. There are four settings to choose from on this updated model, including a cool setting should you want to set your style or simply avoid the heat. This is a great price considering the overall difference it can make to your hair care routine.
To read my full review, here’s I tried this popular hair dryer and brush in one — and it’s awesome.
Revlon One Step Volumizer PLUS 2.0 Hair Dryer and Hot Air Brush: was $69 now $33 @ Amazon
Coffee makers won’t come much cheaper than this — you can now get the Keurig K-Express Coffee Maker for just $49 this Prime Day, down from $79. Not surprisingly, this is the lowest price we’ve seen for this machine. While we’ve yet to test this model, so you won’t find it on our best Keurig coffee makers page, we like its compact design and simple control panel.
There are three cup sizes to choose from; 8, 10 and 12 oz, plus a strong brew option should you be happy to wait for a more bold flavor. The 42 oz removable water tank can hold enough for four cups at a time too.
Keurig K-Express Coffee Maker: was $79 now $49 @ Amazon
Waiting for a great deal on a Bluetooth portable speaker? Now’s your chance. You can get the Marshall Emberton Bluetooth Portable Speaker for just $94, down from $169. This speaker provides 20+ hours of playtime on a full charge, plus its water resistant design means you don’t need to worry about accidental spills.
Weighing just 1.5 pounds, this speaker won’t get cumbersome to carry around, and with one button to do it all, the control panel doesn’t intimidate either. Marshall’s is a household name for audio as well, so you know it’s going to sound good.
Marshall Emberton Bluetooth Portable Speaker: was $169 now $94 @ Amazon
If you want a robot vacuum which boasts the latest technology, this is the Prime Day deal for you. You can now get the Samsung Jet Bot AI+ for just $664 on Amazon, down from $1,299. This robot vacuum offers intelligent cleaning thanks to its object recognition abilities. This means it will actively avoid any obstacles it crosses, and we indeed found it to be a gentle cleaner when we put it to the test — no bumping into furniture necessary. The self-emptying base means you won’t have to empty the dust bin so regularly too.
We also liked that it automatically adjusts its power based on the floor type, and offers alternative cleaning patterns. If those features weren’t enough, you can even live stream its progress via the onboard camera from your phone — handy to keep an eye on your pets. Its cleaning performance was decent too, with an overall pickup score of 89.5%. We have seen stronger cleaners though — check out our best robot vacuums page to see our winners. See our Samsung JetBot AI+ review for more info on this robot’s performance.
Samsung Jet Bot AI+: was $1,299 now $664 @ Amazon
If you’ve always wanted to treat yourself to a dutch oven, but can’t afford this often pricey cookware, now’s your chance. You can get the Amazon Basics Enameled Cast Iron Covered Round Dutch Oven for just $43 this Prime Day — that’s a great price for cast iron. Such a material distributes and retains heat well, creating delicious soups and stews with ease. It’s oven safe up to 400°F and with a 7.3 quart capacity, it will serve 6 people or more.
This deal is only available in the red colorway though, although you can also get the same product in green or gray on sale with a reduced 6 quart capacity.
Amazon Basics Enameled Cast Iron Covered Round Dutch Oven 7.3 quart: was $62 now $43 @ Amazon
The Govee Smart LED Strip Lights can improve the atmosphere in any room you choose, and if you act fast, you can get them for just $19 at Amazon. These smart strips of light can be fitted around your furniture to create backlighting — often advertised behind the bed frame or surrounding your TV for cinematic effect. Once set up and connected via the Wi-Fi, you’re free to control the lights from your phone to create a mood.
There are over 16 million colors to give you exact control as well as preset scenes, should you need help deciding. Add to that, you can even sync the lights to your music for a full party effect. And with 20% off this Prime Day, such technology won’t come much cheaper.
Govee Smart LED Strip Lights, 16.4ft: was $25 now $19 @ Amazon
There’s no need to order print of your favorite photos, because there are plenty of devices that can do it for you. And you don’t have to buy an enormous printer with a bunch of functions you’ll never use. You’re better off with a dedicated mobile photo printer, like the Kodak Smile Instant Digital Printer — which is now $84 over at Amazon.
The printer connects to your phone via Bluetooth, and you use the Kodak Smile app to make physical copies of your favorite shots. The app lets you edit and preview shots before they print, and the Kodak Smile printer pops out 2×3 photos with a sticky-back — offering you more options for display.
The best part? The Kodak Smile doesn’t use any ink or toner, which isn’t true of larger printers. That means you won’t run the risk of it drying up, or be forced to buy overpriced cartridges. However you will need the right photo paper, which currently costs $10 for a pack of 20.
Prime Day is a great time to spruce up your kitchen, and one deal vying for space on your countertop is the Ninja Foodi Smart XL 6-in-1 Indoor Grill — which is currently on sale for $220, down from usual $279 price tag.
This countertop machine can grill, air fry, roast, bake, broil and dehydrate food, which should prove useful for a variety of cooking needs. The mix of 500 degree cyclonic air and grill grate means you can also char grill the food just as you would on an outdoor grill — but without all the smoke and flames.
The Smart XL Indoor Grill is exactly as the name suggests, with various settings and a thermometer to ensure you cook your food perfectly — which will be particularly useful with steak. There’s plenty of room too, with grill space for up to 6 steaks, 243 hot dogs, or whatever combination of foodstuffs you prefer.
Ninja Foodi Smart XL Indoor Grill: was $279 now $220 @ Amazon
If you’re an Android user on the hunt for a new smartwatch, then you may be interested to hear that the Google Pixel Watch is now $249 over at Amazon. That’s $100 off the usual price, which is great deal for one of the best smartwatches around. Especially if you’re a proud Pixel owner.
The Pixel Watch offers a great minimalist design, complete with a full suite of Google services and Fitbit-powered fitness tracking. That means you get the best of Google, and a full Fitbit experience, all in a single device. The battery should also last you a full day, and Google regularly drops new updates — just as it does for Pixel phones.
Google Pixel Watch: was $349 now $249 @ Amazon
If you’ve got a lot of devices that need charging, the last thing you want is a bunch of cables and charging cradles cluttering up your space. That’s where multi-device charging stands come in, and the Belkin 3-in-1 wireless charger is now available for just $79 in Amazon’s Prime Day sale. That’s $40 off the normal price.
For your money you get space to wirelessly charge an iPhone, Apple Watch and a pair of AirPods — provided you have a wireless charging case. Phones recharge at 7.5W, while AirPods and Apple Watches charge at 5W. That’s not hugely fast, but it should get you back to 100% overnight. Built-in LEDs will make sure you can see all that information at a glance too.
Belkin 3-in-1 Wireless Charger: was $119 now $79 @ Amazon
Prime Day is always a great time to save money on Amazon’s own devices, and there are always savings to be had on Ring doorbells. If you’re looking for something low-cost, you can grab the wired Ring Video Doorbell with a chime for as little as $49 at Amazon — down from $79. The wireless option is also discounted from its usual $134 price tag, and will now cost you $79.
The Ring Video Doorbell offers 1080p footage of everything outside your front door, even in the dead of night. There’s also built-in motion detection, to detect people before they ring, and a microphone for talking to whoever might be there. Perfect for home security, and dealing with package deliveries when you’re otherwise engaged.
However you will need a Ring Protect Plan subscription for the full experience, and the ability to save footage to the cloud. Those start at $4 a month.
Ring Video Doorbell with chime: was $79 now $49 @ Amazon
If you’re after a solid pair of cheap wireless earbuds this Prime Day, look no further than this deal on Google’s Pixel Buds A. Normally these buds would cost you $99, which is already a reasonable price, but now you can pick up the Google Pixel Buds A for $59 at Amazon — a 40% saving.
As we noted in our Pixel Buds A review, these buds are affordable and capable, comfortable and offer a slick design. Not to mention the fact they have Google Assistant built in. Sound quality wasn’t the best, but that’s often the case with cheap earbuds, and the solid battery life might help make up for it. That’s 5 hours of music playback per charge, which jumps to 24 hours when you take the charging case into account.
Google Pixel Buds A: was $99 now $59 @ Amazon
Investing in a portable battery pack is the perfect way to ensure your phone doesn’t die on you at the worst possible time. But wiring your phone into a bulky battery isn’t always convenient, which is why magnets can help out. Like the Anker 622 Magnetic Battery, which is now $39 at Amazon — $30 less than the normal price.
Built for iPhones, but not officially MagSafe branded, this battery attaches to your phone’s rear magnets and begins wirelessly charging. With 5,000 mAh of capacity, this will be enough to fully charge an iPhone and have a little left over for later.
The Anker 622 Magnetic battery also designed to be as sleek as possible, which means you don’t need to worry about carrying around a bulky-oversized battery pack. Plus is has a stand, which means you can prop up your phone while it’s recharging.
Anker 63222 Magnetic Battery: was $69 now $39 @ Amazon
Gamers will know the pain of storage management, especially if they own an Xbox Series X or Series S. Games these days are so big, and they have to be run from internal storage or a specific kind of SSD. And the Xbox SSDs have historically, been outrageously expensive — in part because you could only get them from a single company.
Thankfully times are changing, and Prime Day has seen the Xbox Series X|S 1TB expansion card drop to $139 — its lowest ever price. That’s $10 less than the pre-Prime Day price, and $80 less than the original $219 price tag.
It’s still rather pricey for 1TB of storage, especially since 1TB PS5 SSDs can be bought for under $100, but it does mean expanding the space in your console is a little more affordable. And that’s especially exciting for anyone with a 512GB Xbox Series S.
Seagate Storage Expansion Card for Xbox Series X|S (1TB): was $149, now $139 @ Amazon
If you won’t have much time today but don’t want to miss out on any deals, you can try our Prime Day AI chatbot for a little extra help. Powered by tech from OpenAI, the people behind ChatGPT, our bot will surface product and deal recommendations from both Tom’s Guide and our sister sites.

Prime Day and other events (like the Steam Summer Sale!) are a perfect time to fill out your video game catalog without overspending. And we’ve just noticed another good Nintendo Switch gaming deal to bring to your attention.
This Amazon Prime Day sale on Kirby’s Return to Dream Land Deluxe can’t quite match this excellent deal on Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, but for Switch fans its still worth scooping up. This delightful platformer was only released on Nintendo’s system in February and now Amazon has slashed 25% off to bring it down to just $44.
Kirby’s Return to Dream Land Deluxe: was $60 now $44 @ Amazon.
Sometimes the smaller, everyday deals are just as important as big ticket items when it comes to saving money. So while this Prime Day is offering amazing deals like a brand new MacBook Air 15 (M2/256GB) down from $1,299 to $1,249 there’s a much smaller deal that just caught our eye.
Regular old AA batteries are an essential because you’ll almost surely need them for the TV remote, kids toy or perhaps a smoke alarm. That’s why we’re pleased to see Amazon Basics AA rechargeable batteries have been given a sizeable discount. You can pick up a 12-pack of the 2,000mAh AA rechargeables for $12 at Amazon now. That’s a 46% saving on these household essentials that would usually set you back $23.
Amazon Basics 12-Pack Rechargeable Batteries: was $23 now $12 @ Amazon
We’re well into the second 24 hours of Prime Day now and we’ve been noticing some great headphone deals on AirPods, Sony and Bose products so far this year.
Audio brand JBL is getting in on the action too, with up to 60% off JBL Headphones and Earbuds at Amazon right now. These offer some great discounts on mid-tier headphones that sound good but won’t break the bank. All we’d say is don’t wait too long, though, as headphones deals are often among the most popular Prime Day deals and stocks can run out quickly.
If you love movies and long to own loving treatments of classic films, the Criterion Collection is something you should explore. Right now is a great time to do so, because many Blu-Rays and boxed sets in the Collection are half off at Amazon.
We’re winding down the blog for the evening, but don’t worry — in just a few hours we’ll be back to keep you updated on all the latest and greatest Prime Day deals. In the meantime, why not rummage through Amazon’s Criterion Collection deals? Here are a few of my favorites to get you started:
Repo Man: was $39, now $19 @ Amazon
In the Mood for Love: was $39, now $19 @ Amazon
Stalker: was $39, now $19 @ Amazon
Bruce Lee: His Greatest Hits: was $125, now $62.50 @ Amazon
WALL-E 4K: was $50, now $25 @ Amazon
Godzilla Showa-Era Films, 1954–1975: was $225, now $139 @ Amazon
If you’re one of many who play games on both a PS5 and your PC, one of the best gaming monitors for you and you specifically is on deep discount for a limited time!
I’m talking of course about the Sony Inzone M9, Sony’s PS5-friendly PC gaming monitor. In our Sony Inzone M9 review we called this display a fantastic device for both PC and PS5 games that’s among the finest we’ve ever tested. The 27-inch display can hit 4K resolution with a 144Hz refresh rate, and since it has HDMI 2.1 ports it plays nicely with the PlayStation 5’s variable refresh rate tech.
Amazon’s knocking $100 off the usual $900 asking price for a limited time, so act fast if you’re interested!
Sony Inzone M9 gaming monitor: was $899 now $798 @ Amazon
I’ve been thinking about replacing my Kindle for ages, and I think today is the day I take the plunge.
That’s because Amazon has a decent discount on a number of its devices today, including the 2021 Kindle Paperwhite. In our Kindle Paperwhite review we were awfully glowing about this capable e-reader, complaining chiefly about the price increase over earlier models.
Now that Amazon is knocking roughly $50 off the price of a new one it’s a great time to pick one up for an awfully reasonable price. Don’t miss out!
Amazon Kindle Paperwhite (2021): was $139 now $89 @ Amazon
Shopping for a new tablet? Apple’s iPad mini is a great choice if you want something that’s easy to hold in one hand, and right now is a good time to get one because they’re on sale for cheaper than ever before at Amazon.
Right now you can still get a new 2022 iPad mini with 64GB of storage in Pink, Space Gray or Starlight (Purple appears sold out) for $379. That’s not a ton of storage unfortunately, but it is a savings of over $100 on this usually $499 tablet.
So if you don’t mind the idea of not having a lot of room for storing movies and games, take advantage of this chance to snap up an iPad mini for over $100 off.
Apple iPad mini 2022: was $499 now $379 @ Amazon
Amazon is discounting a slew of great Nintendo Switch games as part of this summer Prime Day, making this a smart time to stock up on Switch games for you or someone you love.
If you want an engaging tactical romp featuring some familiar faces, don’t miss out on a chance to save some cash on Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope. Amazon’s knocking roughly $20 off the price of this delightfully odd strategy game, which sees Mario and pals teaming up with Ubisoft’s Rabbids to battle enemies in turn-based tactical battles.
Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope: was $59 now $39 @ Amazon
The Dell XPS 15 OLED is a great Windows 11 ultraportable that hits a sweet spot between price, performance and portability, and if you splurge for the 3.5K OLED screen upgrade it feels like a premium laptop.
That’s why it’s so nice to see Dell delivering a decent $500 discount on the OLED-equipped XPS 15 as part of its “Black Friday in July” sales event, which is basically a Prime Day knock-off. This model is a cutting-edge XPS 15 with the OLED screen, a 13th Gen Intel Core i9 CPU, an Nvidia GeForce RTX 4060 laptop GPU and 32GB of RAM, making it a decent gaming laptop in a pinch.
Dell XPS 15 OLED: was $2,799 now $2,299 @ Dell
If you work from home or even at the office and are tired of having a cramped wrist from moving your mouse across your desk, you might want to consider using a trackball mouse instead. With a trackball mouse, you move a ball at the top of the mouse instead of the mouse itself which can help reduce wrist strain and fatigue.
I’ve been using this trackball mouse from the Japanese company Elecom for the past year and it’s really helped boost my productivity. This is because the Elecom EX-G Pro has eight fully customizable buttons including a tilting scroll wheel which you can program any way you want. For instance, I have one button programmed to switch applications with a single press and copy and paste mapped to either side of the scroll wheel. Right now, the Elecom EX-G Pro is just $49 at Amazon which is its lowest price yet. Switching to a trackball mouse certainly takes some getting used to but once you switch, it’s hard to go back to a traditional mouse.
Elecom EX-G Pro: was $75 now $49 @ Amazon
And that will be all from me. I’ll be back tomorrow with some more deals and I hope you find exactly what you’re looking for on Prime Day.
Vari is known for making some of the best standing desks and even though most of the company’s desks carry a premium price, that isn’t the case with all of them. In fact, the Vari Essential Electric Standing Desk is just $239 at Amazon right now. While it may not have all the bells and whistles of the Vari Electric Standing Desk, you’ll be hard pressed to find a better made standing desk at this price.
The Vari Essential Electric Standing Desk is also great for smaller apartments and home offices as its only 48-inches wide and 24-inches deep. Despite being more compact, it still has a weight limit of 150 pounds and its T-Style legs provide stability at any height from 27.5-inches to 47.5-inches. Its laminate desktop is not only durable but it’s also really easy to clean. If you have a bit more to spend though, the Vari Electric Standing Desk is also on sale for Prime Day.

Whole home Wi-Fi! Upgrading to one of the best mesh Wi-Fi systems isn’t something you’ll regret, especially after you see the difference it makes at home since you won’t have to worry about internet dead zones any longer.
Right now the eero Pro 6E in a three-pack is just $399 at Amazon. That’s $150 off this fantastic mesh Wi-Fi system’s normal price. As the name suggests, the eero Pro 6E is eero’s first mesh router with Wi-Fi 6E support which means in addition to the 2.4 and 5 GHz bands, you’ll have access to the new, faster 6 GHz band too. Eero has also added a 2.5 Gbps WAN port at the back for multi-gig internet plans but there’s also a gigabit Ethernet port at the back of each device. The eero Pro 6E three-pack can cover up to 6,000 square feet with a strong Wi-Fi signal which is more than enough coverage for most homes.
Besides being incredibly simple to set up and configure, the eero Pro 6E and other eero devices work great with Alexa. In fact, if you have a 4th or 5th Gen Echo Dot (which are also on sale for Prime Day) you can use one of Amazon’s smart speakers as a mesh Wi-Fi extender to increase your range even further.
eero Pro 6E: was $549 now $399 @ Amazon
Hey everyone! Senior security and networking editor Anthony Spadafora here. For the next two hours, I’ll be bringing you some of the best networking and work from home-related deals available on Prime Day.
While there are loads of great deals on Amazon right now, it’s also worth checking other online retailers since they’re also getting in on the shopping spree. For instance, here are 5 Dell deals that are better than Amazon Prime Day sales which include big discounts on laptops, desktops and monitors from both Dell and Alienware.
Likewise, Best Buy is currently running its own Black Friday in July promotion and Target has its Circle Week deals to check out and you can save even more with our Target promo codes. Here’s a glance at some of the top deals available on Dell’s online store right now:
Here’s an item I’ve had on my wishlist for some time.
Currently, Amazon is selling the Belkin Belkin MagSafe 3-in-1 Wireless Charging Stand (2nd gen) for $127. With this, I can finally charge my iPhone 13 Pro, AirPods Pro and Apple Watch SE all on one device. Best of all, this is the cheapest price for this charger, which makes it a phenomenal deal to take advantage of.
Belkin MagSafe 3-in-1 Wireless Charging Stand (2nd Gen): was $149 now $127 @ Amazon
That’ll do it for me! Hope you all find some awesome deals during Prime Day. I’ll be back tomorrow for more updates!
The Sony Inzone line of products might feature PS5-like aesthetics but the company is also marketing it for general PC gamers. One of my favorite Inzone products is now on sale thanks to Prime Day and it’s a great deal for those looking for a relatively affordable 4K gaming monitor.
Right now, the Sony Inzone M9 gaming monitor is on sale for $798 at Amazon. That’s $101 off the original $899 price, which is definitely a nice chunk of change. The Sony Inzone M9 has all the bells and whistles needed to play the best PC games and the best PS5 games. And based on my testing it’s a product I highly recommend.
Sony Inzone M9: was $899 now 798 @ Amazon.
If you’re like me and believe that real books are good but digital books are better, then Amazon Prime Day is a perfect time to save big on the best Kindles. You can’t go wrong with any of the latest Kindle models out there, but I recommend the one that’s my personal go-to for reading digital books and novels.
Right now, you can get the Kindle Paperwhite (2021) for $89 at Amazon. This e-reader normally retails for $139 — meaning you’ll save $50 thanks to this deal. Honestly, I’m kind of jealous considering I paid around $120 for my Kindle Paperwhite. But that’s okay since I can make up for that by sharing this deal with all of you. This latest version of Kindle Paperwhite is the best yet.
Amazon Kindle Paperwhite (2021): was $139 now $89 @ Amazon
Hey, all! Computing Writer Tony Polanco here. For the next hour, I’ll drop some of the best computing and gaming-related deals I can find.
Let’s start off with the new MacBook Air 15-inch. This is one of my favorite laptops due to its excellent M2-powered performance, exceptional 15-hour battery life, and gorgeous design that’s reminiscent of the 2021 MacBook Pros. Right now it’s $1,249, which is just $50 off its regular price. However, we’ve seen it go as low as $100 so it’s possible it may drop to that price again. Regardless, this is still a great deal to take advantage of.
MacBook Air 15 (M2/256GB): was $1,299 now $1,249 @ Amazon
It’s easy to overspend on Prime Day. Whether it’s the onslaught of e-mails from Amazon or the frenzy of competing sales from stores like Best Buy and Walmart — everyone is pressuring you to buy something. So my colleague Katie has written a primer on 7 mistakes to avoid when shopping this Prime Day. It includes tips on everything from finding coupons to buying stuff without factoring additional costs. Bottom line — if you don’t need it, don’t buy it.
7 mistakes to avoid on Prime Day
I’ve been meaning to get a new monitor as my 30-inch Dell is really starting to show its age. (I’ve had it for over 10 years). I’ve always liked the styling of Samsung’s monitors and this Prime Day sale is knocking Samsung monitors to as low as $89. That said, the one that’s jumping out at me the most is the Samsung 34-inch Odyssey G5 for just $399. It was $30 cheaper back in March, but rarely ever does it get this cheap.
Samsung Monitor Sale: deals from $89 @ Amazon
There’s one deal I get every Prime Day, but it isn’t a big-ticket television or Apple product or hot new gadget. My top Prime Day deal: vitamins.
Prime Day usually knocks at least 20% off my favorite gummy vitamins from SmartyPants. Sometimes, they’re almost a whopping half off! Sure, vitamins are not glamorous or exciting, but they’re good for you. I like SmartyPants gummies because they’re easier and more delicious to take than a pill. They come in different formulations targeted at women, men and children. With this deal, I’m stockpiling enough to last me for months.
SmartyPants Daily Gummy Multivitamin Adult: was $47 now $26 @ Amazon
Who doesn’t love a deal on dinner? One of the best perks of Amazon Prime is a free year of Grubhub+. With it, you pay $0 delivery fees on applicable orders and exclusive member-only offers.
And during Prime Day, Grubhub+ members can take advantage of a limited-time discount of $15 on orders of over $25 with the code GRUBPRIME. This offer is valid until July 12, 2023 at 11:59PM PT.
Grubhub+ membership: FREE with Amazon Prime
Most of the time, I write for our streaming section. There are a ton of big discounts on hardware, but some of the best Prime Day streaming deals are on services. Through Prime Video Channels, you can get some of the top streaming services at almost shockingly low prices. That includes Starz for just $1 month, for the first two months. The premium network is airing Outlander season 7 right now, so you can see Jamie and Clare deal with the dawn of the Revolutionary War. Plus, you can binge all of the hilarious Party Down revival. Are we having fun yet? If not, you can be soon.
Starz: was $9.99 now $0.99 per month @ Amazon
Hey, senior writer Kelly Woo here. I just got back from a trip to London, so I shared some of the TikTok-approved travel items that are really worth the hype. The first one on the list is the Trtl travel pillow, an ingenius scarf-like wrap that supports your neck as you nod off to sleep. I’ve found it works better than a regular, memory-foam travel pillow and it barely takes up any room in your bag. With this Prime Day deal, you can get it for 25% off regular price!
Trtl Travel Pillow: was $59 now $45
As I mentioned earlier, I’m team Apple Watch. However, the Fitbit Charge 5 is also an epic fitness tracker that’s significantly cheaper than the Series 8. It’s so good we named it the best Fitbit you can buy overall. It comes with built-in GPS, a bright, always-on display, and many of the same high-tech features you’ll find in Fitbit’s more expensive trackers, including an electrodermal activity sensor (EDA) and an electrocardiogram sensor (ECG). It’s hit this price point a few/rare times in the past, which is the cheapest I’ve ever seen it sell for.
Fitbit Charge 5: was $149 now $99 @ Amazon
It’s a great day for iPad deals. Almost every iPad is on sale right now at its lowest price ever. From the previous-gen 10.2-inch iPad to the iPad Air, Amazon has knocked down iPad prices to record lows. The iPad Pros, unfortunately, are on sale, but have been cheaper before. For instance, the 12.9-inch iPad Pro is on sale for $1,049, but sold for $999 earlier this year. It’s still a good deal, but I would personally wait for that $999 price tag again. Here’s a glance at what’s on sale:
With all of the raging fires happening this summer, you might be thinking about buying your first air purifier. The Honeywell HEPA Air Purifier (HPA300) is a good value pick. It has among the highest CADR ratings for smoke, dust, and pollen of the units we recommend, and it can filter slightly larger rooms effectively. It also has four speeds (compared with three on most units), a programmable timer, and adjustable control panel lights. In our Honeywell HPA300 review we said it’s a reliable air purifier built for larger rooms (up to 465 square feet). This is just $3 shy of its all-time price low from back in 2017!
Honeywell HPA300 HEPA Air Purifier: was $269 now $149 @ Amazon
Louis here — I’m gonna interrupt the flow of this live blog with a deal you can’t get at Amazon. Right now Best Buy has the Roku 75-inch Plus Series QLED 4K TV on sale for $799. That’s $200 off and its lowest price ever. We named this TV the best budget TV of 2023. It uses quantum-dot LED technology to produce vivid colors and increased brightness. And in everything we watched, we found that the TV lived up to Roku’s claims. This TV is a Best Buy exclusive, so you won’t find this deal at Amazon. Also, the 65-inch model is on sale for $599 ($50 off), but the 75-inch offers the biggest savings ($200 off).
Roku 75″ Plus QLED 4K TV: was $999 now $799 @ Best Buy
Amazon isn’t typically our go-to store for mattress deals. You’ll find lower prices and better discounts (in the form or freebies and bundles) when you shop directly from a mattress brand. However, our sleep expert/editor Ruth did spot one deal worth calling out. Amazon has the Casper Original Foam Mattress (queen) on sale for $906. That’s $30 shy of its all-time price low, which we saw back in 2020!
Casper Original Mattress (Twin): was $895 now $626 @ Amazon
Casper Original Mattress (Queen): was $1,295 now $906 @ Amazon
Price check: $1,036 @ Casper
Summer Fun! Here’s a hot deal that just came in from my colleague Kate Kozuch. Right now the XGIMI MoGo 2 Portable Projector is just $299 at Amazon. That’s $100 off for a recently released model that’s packed with all the features we think you’re looking for out of a portable projector. It’s a great option for your next outdoor movie night.
Powered by 400 ISO lumens, the XGIMI MoGo 2 Portable Projector is a superb projector for the price. Not only does it project a screen up to 120 inches, but with the built-in smart TV interface, dozens streaming apps are ready to use. You could hook up your laptop or smartphone as well. Get it for an all-time-low price right now!
XGIMI MoGo 2 Portable Projector: was $399 now $299 at Amazon
🚨 LOWEST PRICE EVER: Ding ding ding! This is the Prime Day phone deal to get if you’re looking to get a great Android phone for very little money.
Right now you can get the Google Pixel 6a for just $249 on Amazon, which is $100 off the regular price and the lowest price I’ve ever seen for this handset. The lowest previous price on Amazon was $299.
So what do you get for your money? In our Google Pixel 6a review we called it the “total package.” You get excellent photos from the 12.2MP main rear camera and 12MP ultrawide shooter, a bright 6.1-inch OLED display and Tensor-powered capabilities like Magic Eraser in a compact design. Yes, the battery life could be better but this is an unbeatable deal.
Google Pixel 6a (Charcoal): was $349 now $249 @ Amazon U.S.

Hi, this is editor in chief Mark Spoonauer pitching in to help you find the best Prime Day deals. And as the owner of a new puppy this sale is right up my alley.
Right now you can get the Bisseel Little Green Multi-Purpose Portable Carpet Cleaner for just $86 on Amazon, which 30% off the regular $123 price. This handy device can help remove pet spots and stains from your carpets and upholstery, as well as your car’s interior.
Despite being portable, the large capacity 48-ounce tank gives you several cleanings between refills, and the the Spot & Stain formula that’s included has Febreeze built in so everything can smell fresh again in no time.

From smoothies to nut butters, this NutriBullet Blender Combo could come in very handy if you’re trying to eat healthy. It packs 1200 watts of power and comes with a 64-ounce blender, 32-oz cup, 24-oz cup, two to-go lids, easy-twist Extractor blade, and a recipe book. Heads up — if you’re a Costco member, they have a lower price.

Kids may be enjoying summer break, but retailers will soon kick off their back to school sales for 2023. (A few of them already have!) One of the most sought after back to school items for students of all ages is a new laptop. Our resident laptop expert — and fellow native New Yorker — Tony has created this roundup of his favorite Prime Day laptop deals. The list includes MacBooks, a few gaming rigs (that also make great school laptops), and a great budget option in the MacBook Air M1. (For a mix of various deals, check out our Prime Day laptop deals coverage).
7 can’t miss laptop deals from a laptop reviewer/expert
If you want to dive into the world of Apple Watches, but don’t have a big budget — this is the deal for you. The current-gen Apple Watch SE is on sale for just $199. That’s its lowest price ever beating its previous all-time low by $20. We named the Apple Watch SE the best smartwatch for iPhone users on a budget. In our Apple Watch SE (2022) review we loved it for its combination of features and price. Counting your steps and measuring your heart rate or just some of the cool things it can do. It also features Emergency SOS, Fall Detection, and Crash Detection, which can be invaluable in case of an accident. I personally prefer the Apple Watch 8 because it has an always-on screen that’s invaluable when you’re working out. It’s also on sale at its lowest price ever of $279. But if that price is still too steep — the SE is a solid buy.
Apple Watch SE 2022 (GPS/40mm): was $249 now $199 @ Amazon
For the past 3 or 4 years I’ve been using Prime Day to stock up on groceries and household items. I know, they’re not as exciting as say a sweet MacBook deal, but grocery deals are the unsung hero of Prime Day if you ask me. For Prime Day 2023, Amazon is leaning hard on Amazon Fresh deals. They’re offering $1 grocery deals, BOGO deals on select brands (like Ben & Jerry’s), and a buy 3 get 30% off sale as well. We all need to eat, amirite?
Amazon Fresh: $1 grocery deals @ Amazon
A bad bout of runner’s knee put my running on hold for most of 2022, but after a few months of rehab I’ve been running on the treadmill and ready to hit the outdoors again. If you’re looking for a good pair of running shoes, there are a lot of Prime Day deals available on Saucony, Brooks, and Asics. Our fitness editor Jane wrote a roundup of her top picks and it’s worth checking out. She ran the London Marathon earlier this year and is an expert at all things fitness/running related. Tom’s Guide fitness writer and personal trainer Sam also recommends these shoes which she used when she ran the London Marathon.

If you need of a new set of ‘phones, today is the day to make your purchase. Amazon has the Bose QuietComfort 45 on sale for $199. That’s cheaper than the $229 price low we had seen for these headphones in the past. Small footnote though — only the Midnight Blue color is selling at this price. Other colors are $229. In our Bose QuietComfort 45 review we said that these are “a no-brainer for Bose fans” and rival the Sony WH-1000XM5 headphones for the best headphones in 2023. Like the Sony, the Bose QC45 offer high-end active noise canceling — some of the best ANC we’ve experienced on any set of headphones. We also loved the surprisingly useful Bose Music App that can be downloaded for free.
Bose QuietComfort 45: was $329 now $199 @ Amazon
In addition to tech and kitchen devices, I’ve noticed that Prime Day is also a good time to stock up on apparel. One of the biggest sales I’m seeing today is on GAP apparel. Amazon is taking 50% off men’s and women’s GAP clothes. The sale includes basic items like socks and tees (these are the cheap ones going for under $9) as well as jeans, shorts, and polos (on sale from $16). There are even a few fall/fleece items if you wanna get your fall shopping started early.
GAP Women’s: 50% off deals from $5 @ Amazon
GAP Men’s: 50% off deals from $3 @ Amazon
I haven’t made any major Prime Day purchase yet, but this is the deal that will probably break me. Amazon is taking up to 20% off a wide selection of gift cards. The sale includes Roblox, GAP, DoorDash, GrubHub, Panera, Old Navy, Uber, and a bunch of other big names. Now if you’ll pardon me for this brief post, but there’s a GrubHub card with my name on it.
Gift Cards sales: up to 20% off @ Amazon
Just in time for those summer trips to the beach or those backyard get-togethers, Yeti is knocking 50% off its Ramblers and Wine Tumblers for Prime Day. After discount, deals start at just $12. This is the biggest discount I’ve seen on Yeti’s insulated tumblers. As a matter of fact, if you go to Yeti’s website, you’ll see they’re all selling at list price. On the downside, neither Amazon nor Yeti are discounting the coolers or the bags, but it’s still a pretty solid Prime Day deal overall.
Yeti 50% off sale: deals from $12 @ Amazon
The Samsung 65-inch QN90C QLED 4K TV is among the best QLED TVs to ever hit our testing bench. That’s what my colleague Kate said in her Samsung QN90C Neo QLED TV review. The TV has amazing HDR brightness, ample viewing options, and strong picture performance. Simply put: This is the QLED to beat in 2023. All sizes are on sale at their lowest price ever (the 55- and 65-inch models are the sweet spot).
Samsung 55″ QN90C QLED 4K TV: was $1,997 now $1,597 @ Amazon
Samsung 65″ QN90C QLED 4K TV: was $2,797 now $2,097 @ Amazon
I have a small confession to make. I’m not a Star Wars fan. Yeah, I saw the original movies in the theater as a kid, but…they…didn’t do much for me. However, a lot of my friends are Star Wars fans and THEY will appreciate this deal. Amazon has the Lego Star Wars The Razor Crest set on sale for $97. That’s the cheapest it’s ever been. Note that this is supposed to be an Amazon exclusive, but it looks like the LEGO store also sells it, albeit at full price.
Lego Star Wars The Razor Crest: was $139 now $97 @ Amazon
I stream most of my content these days, but if you have a Blu-ray player (or want to start a collection), here are some of my fave Korean horror movies on sale today. Not all of them are horror-horror, but I promise you they’re unique and completely unpredictable. Note that The Wailing has been as cheap as $9 in the past, but that movie is so epic I’d pay twice the current price for it. If you only buy one — The Wailing would be my rec.
Parasite: was $22 now $10 @ Amazon
The Wailing: was $29 now $15
I Saw The Devil: was $16 now $12 @ Amazon
Midnight: was $19 now $14 @ Amazon
I’ve been tracking deals for over a decade now. The more you do it, the easier it is to predict deals and remember price lows. But I realize not everyone tracks deals for a living, so one of my favorite tools to use is called CamelCamelCamel. (I use the browser extension called the Camelizer). They both operate the same way — they track the price history of items sold on Amazon. They’ll show you how cheap it’s been in the past so you can see if something is really a true deal or just a blah sale. It’s not a bulletproof tool; there are certain products it doesn’t track and sometimes you’ll get a blank price history. But it’s still a tool I recommend and use everyday.
Look at that beautiful pie! As I mentioned earlier, I’m a native NYer (Hell’s Kitchen, baby!), so I’m picky about my pizza. Sadly, this also means I have no room/outdoor space for this oven. But if you do — we named it one of the best outdoor pizza ovens, especially if you’re on a budget. It runs on wood pellets and can reach temps upwards of 950 degrees (we measured more than 1,000 degrees on occasion). Just take a look at the pies that Mike (Tom’s Guide EIC) made using it.
Ooni Frya 12 Pizza Oven: was $349 now $295 @ Amazon
I never thought a weighted blanket would make much of a difference in my sleep, but it totally does. I own the Luna Weighted Blanket and I love it. We named it the best weighted blanket you can buy overall because it does a great job of relaxing you in bed. For me, I’m less restless when I use it to sleep. Heads up that it doesn’t have a removable cover, but you can buy a duvet cover for it. It’s on sale for $59 (down from $79) and there’s an extra 5% discount on-page coupon that drops it to $56. It’s a steal at this price and worth the investment if you’re a restless sleeper.
Luna Weighted Blanket: was $79 now $56 @ Amazon
Happy Prime Day, all! This is Louis here — deals editor at Tom’s Guide coming to you from a balmy NYC. (Is it fall yet?) Quick little intro here: I’ve been deals editor at Tom’s Guide for close to 7 years now. Prior to that I was covering deals and tech for other sites like Digital Trends, Business Insider, Dealnews, and Cnet. I’m a native New Yorker (born and bred) and the only thing I love more than a good deal is a good grandma slice of pizza. As the headline in this live blog states, this is not my first time at the rodeo. I’ve been covering deals for over 10 years. So let’s get started!
Own an iPhone, Apple Watch and AirPods? Then you should definitely check out this awesome accessory. Right now Amazon has the Belkin Belkin MagSafe 3-in-1 Wireless Charging Stand (2nd gen) for $127, which is $22 off.
The appeal is that you can charge three devices at once while saving space. And with iOS 17 on the way, you’ll be able to use the new StandBy feature and use your iPhone as a smart display, complete with the time and widgets. This is the lowest price ever for this product so you’ll want to act fast.
Belkin MagSafe 3-in-1 Wireless Charging Stand (2nd Gen): was $149 now $127 @ Amazon
LOWEST PRICE EVER: As someone holding on to a aging Apple Watch Series 4, this the Prime Day Apple Watch deal I would scoop up for myself. If you hurry you can get the Apple Watch Series 8 for just $279 on Amazon, which is $120 off the regular price.
The Apple Watch Series 8 features a new skin temperature sensor for sleep and cycle tracking. It also sports new advanced safety features like Crash Detection, which leverages the wearable’s improved motion sensors for instant help when you might need it most.
In our Apple Watch 8 review, we called it the best smartwatch hands down. It offers a great display that’s easy to read outdoors, a new workout interface for watchOS 9 and longer battery life with low power mode. I would act fast on this Prime Day deal.
Apple Watch Series 8 (41mm/GPS): was $399 now $279 @ Amazon
It’s time to get your game on without breaking the bank. The HP Victus packs all the specs you need to play the best PC games medium settings, and right now you can get the HP Victus 15.6-inch for just $679 at Best Buy, which is a steep $220 discount versus the $899 retail price.
The Victus features an Nivdia RTX 3050 GPU, 8GB of RAM and a fairly robust 512GB hard drive, plus an eight-core, 13th gen Intel Core i5 CPU. Our favorite feature is the 144Hz 1080p display — a high refresh rate that should result in smooth gameplay.
This is not a system we have reviewed but our sister site Tom’s Hardware gave this system an excellent 4 out of 5 star rating.
HP Victus 15.6″ (RTX 3050/8GB/512GB): was $899 now $679 @ Best Buy
Here’s an easy recommendation that comes straight from my colleague Henry T. Casey who had a chance to review this tablet. Right now you can grab the 8.3-inch iPad mini (64GB) on sale for $379 at Amazon. That’s the lowest price ever and $100 less than its regular price.
This iPad mini offers the same thin-bezel design and Apple Pencil 2 support as the iPad Air and iPad Pro but in a more portable size with an 8.3-inch Liquid Retina display. You also get a speedy A15 Bionic CPU, 12MP wide camera and USB-C connectivity.
In Henry’s iPad mini 6 review, he loved its performance, sharp and bright display and excellent webcam. The only thing missing is Magic Keyboard support. But overall this is a stellar iPad Prime Day deal.
8.3″ iPad mini 6: was $499 now $379 @ Amazon [LOWEST PRICE]
🚨 LOWEST PRICE EVER: I don’t use emojis and all caps often when I write but in this case I’m making an exception. And that’s because the excellent Sony WH-1000XM5 headphones are just $328 at Amazon right now. That’s the lowest price ever for these noise canceling cans, which sit atop our list of the best headphones.
The WH-1000XM5 are Sony’s flagship noise-canceling headphones. They feature large, over-ear cushions, excellent active noise cancellation, and up to 40 hours of battery life, or up to 30 hours with ANC enabled.
In our Sony WH-1000XM5 review, we praised these headphones for their engaging sound, impressive noise cancellation, stellar call quality and long battery life. Our only complaint is that they can get a bit hot around the ears when listening and what was a high price. Not anymore! So act fast on this deal.
Sony WH-1000XM5: was $399 now $328 @ Amazon
I am one of those people who haven’t upgrade to a video doorbell yet, but deals like this are just too tempting to ignore. If you act fast you can grab the eufy Video Doorbell Dual for just $129 on Amazon. That’s $70 less than the usual price.
One of the best things about this video doorbell is that it packs dual cameras, so you shouldn’t have any blindspots when it comes to looking for things like packages at your door. There’s also both human and package detection, as we noted in our eufy Video Doorbell Dual review. And with 2K resolution and HDR support, the footage looks pretty crisp.
The best part? You don’t have to pay a monthly fee because this video doorbell offers local storage.
eufy Video Doorbell Dual: was $199 now $129 @ Amazon
If you want to improve the air quality in your home — and there’s been lots of bad air quality in the U.S. this summer — you won’t find a better Prime Day deal than this one. Right now you can snag the Blueair Advanced Air Purifier 7470i for $288, down from $599. That’s 52% off one of the best air purifiers we’ve tested.
In our Blueair 7470i review, we praised this model’s effective and quiet performance, sleek design and especially its smarts. The Blueair app provides live data on the quality of your air, including varying particle levels and information on carbon monoxide and sulphur dioxide. If you don’t have your phone to hand, the quality of air is displayed via the LCD screen too — color coding helps to indicate this. Plus there’s information on the local temperature, filter lifetime remaining and humidity.
This air purifier can cover a large space, with a suggested room size of 418 sq. ft. Its average CADR scores of 275 across dust, smoke and pollen, mean it will effectively filter a range of pollutant sizes from the atmosphere.

This is Editor in Chief Mark Spoonauer stepping in for Louis for a while, and I’ve also been covering Prime Day deals for 9 years. So I know a good Prime Day TV deal when I see one. And this one isn’t at Amazon.
Right now the LG A2 48-inch 4K OLED TV is just $599 at Best Buy. That’s a whopping $700 off. In our LG A2 OLED review, we said it offers outstanding picture quality, a great smart TV platform and solid sound, plus low input loag. It offers Dolby Vision/HDR10/HLG support, LG’s webOS platform and built-in Google Assistant/Amazon Alexa.
Yes, the refresh rate is only 60Hz panel (120Hz is better) and there’s just three HDMI ports. But otherwise this is a great Prime Day TV deal.

These days a kitchen isn’t complete with one of the best air fryers, and Prime Day is the ideal time to save on a well-reviewed model. For example, the Ninja AF150AMZ Air Fryer is on offer for $99 at Amazon right now. That’s a solid $60 off compared to its full retail price of $159. But be warned, discounted Ninja appliances are always popular so we don’t expect this Prime Day deal will stick around long.
Not only does this Ninja model fry delicious and crispy foods, but it can roast, reheat and dehydrate meals — features not often found on most air fryers. Plus, its XL capacity makes it ideal for large families, or cooking in bigger batches. Best of all, cooking requires little or no oil, making it a healthier option to traditional deep frying. Sadly this isn’t a two baskets model, but for under $100, it’s a great value pick, especially for budding home chefs that are looking for a first air fryer.

Our fitness editor has tested dozens of exercise bikes, and their favorite is currently on sale for Prime Day. The Peloton Bike is on sale for $1,145 at Amazon which is a sizeable $300 discount. Yes, it’s still expensive even at this reduced price, but it’s a great deal if you’ve had your eye on a Peloton for a while.
The Peloton Bike has a 22” touchscreen which allows you to view all of the classes on the Bike with ease. The Bike has a neat footprint, which is about the same size as a yoga mat at four feet long and two feet wide, and a metal cage at the back for two lightweight dumbbells, which can be used in abs and arms classes on the bike.

Sticking with audio products, Apple’s top-tier AirPods have been discounted for Prime Day 2023. Right now, the AirPods Max are on sale for $449 at Amazon. However, these premium cans have dropped to $429 in the past.
Nevertheless, this is still an excellent deal for Apple’s premium, retro-style headphones. They feature large, over-ear cushions, active noise cancelation, Spatial Audio, and a 20-hour battery life to enable you to listen all day. In our AirPods Max review, we labeled them “exceptional noise-canceling headphones with a luxurious design, sophisticated soundstage and clever computational features.”

The UE Wonderboom 3 is already one of the best cheap portable Bluetooth speakers and now it’s even better value. Currently, the UE Wonderboom 3 is on sale for $88 at Amazon. That’s not the lowest price ever, but it’s still a Prime Day bargain.
The compact speaker is IP67 waterproof and delivers up to 13 hours of rich 360-degree sound, helping to make it the perfect companion for BBQs, pool parties and music festivals. In our review, we said “The UE Wonderboom 3 is an ultra-portable Bluetooth speaker with impressive sound quality for the size, and can be paired with another for even stronger performance.”

If you’re feeling a little bleary-eyed this morning, this Nespresso Vertuo Coffee and Espresso Maker for $129 at Amazon could be exactly what you need to perk up. This is the lowest price we’ve ever spotted for this coffee maker.
This stylish unit works with Nespresso Vertuo capsules, available in 30 aromatic blends. It can make various sizes including 5-, 8-, and 18-oz coffees, as well as single and double espresso. It uses a one-touch brewing system and looks luxurious thanks to its black-matte rose gold finish.

It wouldn’t be Prime Day without some epic MacBook deals, and this discount on the excellent MacBook Air 15-inch M2 has caught our eye. This desirable laptop packs Apple’s powerful M2 chip, a gorgeous Liquid Retina display and the range’s trademark sleek design. It’s not as powerful as the latest MacBook Pro models, but it’s packing a punch that is more than enough for most users. While it’s the bigger sibling of the 13-inch model, the MacBook Air 15-inch M2 still remains one of the thinnest and lightest laptops in its class.

The best deals aren’t exclusively at Amazon right now, take for example Best Buy’s Black Friday in July sale which is also offering big savings on everything from 4K TVs to home security equipment. That includes the Nest Cam (Battery) on sale for $119.
This is TG’s favorite outdoor security camera overall. We rate the Nest Cam (Battery) so highly because of its excellent video quality, great battery life, and the fact that you get person, package, and vehicle detection for free — something that many other companies charge for. Of course, you will have to sign up for a subscription ($6/month) if you want to save videos, but the price could be worth it.

The WD_Black SN850X is one of the best PS5 internal SSDs and the 1TB model is on sale for $66 at Amazon. That’s a saving of more than $110 and an excellent deal for a PS5 accessory that is rapidly becoming practically essential as the average install size of current-gen games continue to balloon.
The latest iteration of the best-selling SN850 drive, this SSD boasts a read speed of 7,300 Mbps and a write speed of 6,350 Mbps, which comfortably meets Sony’s requirements for a PS5-compatible SSD. Plus, it comes with a heatsink pre-installed so is ready to slot into your console straight out of the box.

The Google Pixel 7a was already a contender for one of the best cheap phones, and thanks to Prime Day it’s now even more affordable. Right now, the Google Pixel 7a is on sale for $449 at Amazon, that’s a $50 discount and the lowest price ever for the Android smartphone.
In our Google Pixel 7a review, we were highly impressed by this device and its host of premium features at a less-than-premium price. Its stunning 6.1-inch OLED display packs a 90Hz refresh rate, and, in our tests, we saw a max brightness reading of 931 nits. As expected with a Pixel phone, the cameras are top-tier landing the Pixel 7a on our best camera phones. The main shooter outshines even the Pixel 7 with a 64MP lens. And there’s a 13MP ultrawide and 13MP selfie lens to boot. Plus, the Tensor G2 chip shines when it comes to performance.
Google Pixel 7a: was $499 now $449 @ Amazon
Looking to upgrade your PS5 setup? The Sony Inzone M9 sports a PS5-like look and is the perfect pick for gaming on a console or a PC. Even better, the Sony 27″ Inzone M9 gaming monitor is on sale for $798 at Amazon. That’s a Prime Day discount of $100.
As explained in our Sony Inzone M9 review, this is one of the finest gaming monitors we’ve ever tested. With its vibrant 27-inch 4K LCD display, 144Hz refresh rate, 1ms response time, VRR support and G-Sync compatibility, PC and PS5 games look and run phenomenally on this monitor. Naturally, it makes the cut for our roundup of the best gaming monitors. Overall, the Inzone M9 was a brilliant deal at $899 and now with a Prime Day discount it’s even easier to recommend.

I purchased the LG C2 OLED TV last year and while I love its picture quality, it downright sucks for audio. So I’ve been playing around with the idea of adding a soundbar to my setup. The Bose Smart Soundbar 900 is one model I’m looking at. In our Bose Smart Soundbar 900 review, we said it has every feature you could want in a high-end soundbar. That includes multiroom audio, Alexa/Google Assistant support, and it can be expanded into a full home theater setup with add-on wireless Bose surrounds and a wired subwoofer. It’s now tied at its lowest price ever.

This is one of my favorite Prime Day deals right now. Prime members can get the Amazon 43-inch 4K Omni Fire TV for just $99, which is the cheapest 4K TV I’ve ever seen. Even on Black Friday I’ve never seen a 4K TV this cheap. There are a few caveats here. First, you’ll need to log into your Prime account and request an invite to buy this TV. (It’ll go on sale during Prime Day). Also, in our Amazon Fire TV Omni review we said it’s solid for gaming thanks to its low lag time, but there are better options for picture quality. That said, at $99 it’s an epic deal for a small living room, bedroom TV, or as a TV for a kids room.

I normally wouldn’t recommend a laptop that’s 3 years old. However, as a Mac user I know that Mac devices tend to hold onto their worth for much longer than say a Windows laptop. (I’m writing this on a 2015 iMac that still runs smooth). So to see the 2020 MacBook Air 13-in on sale for $749 is an epic deal in my opinion. It’s especially great for cash-strapped students (back to school season is right around the corner). Two years ago this MBA hit this price point at Best Buy via a student-only deal (back when Best Buy did student-only deals). It never hit this price point again….until now.

Yes, this is a very predictable deal, but there are a few reasons I’m highlighting it. A lot of folks — myself included — have old Echos in our home. So if you’ve been looking to upgrade — this is the Echo Dot you want. First, this is the cheapest it’s ever been. (The previous low was $34). Additionally, we named it the best smart speaker and best smart home device you can buy. In our review we said the LED clock display really makes a difference and we also like the built-in Eero WiFi extender and the room temperature sensor.
