Prime Day, Amazon’s made-up summer shopping extravaganza, is back again, and this year, it’s going into overtime. Prime Day is now a 48-hour event, giving you two days to get your hands on some discounted goods.
Amazon’s self-made holiday originally began as a celebration of its 20 year anniversary, and has grown into a true shopping spectacle, comparable to Black Friday. Prices will be slashed on lots of tech, including popular consumer electronics, games, smart home gear, and other gadgets you didn’t think you needed until now. This year, Prime Day starts on July 15 at 12 a.m. PT and ends at 11:59 p.m. PT on July 16. If you’re already in possession of an Echo device, on July 13 you can ask, “Alexa, what are my deals?” and get access to select discounts early.
While Amazon may have already shown off its own sales, other companies are still waiting until the last minute to reveal their best deals. We’ll keep you posted on the most eye-catching discounts for the coolest gadgets, but here’s what you can get ready to purchase this Prime Day:
Amazon’s own line of Fire tablets is getting a hefty discount. Its least expensive Fire 7 is getting a $20 discount, making it $29.99. You can get two for $49.98, just in case you want one for each hand. On the other end of the price spectrum is the Fire HD 10, available for $99.99. Want another one just in case? You can save $120 when you buy two Fire HD 10 tablets for $179.98.
As for Amazon’s Kindle e-reader, you can save a few bucks on those and get started reading some of the most popular titles without spending a penny more. During Prime Day, buying any Kindle will net you a $5 e-book credit, as well as three free months of Kindle Unlimited, Amazon’s Netflix-for-books service available on its Kindle devices.
Amazon’s cheapest Kindle will run you $59.99 on Prime Day, saving you $30 in the process. Want a quality e-reader that can survive being used in the tub?
