Prime Day deals

Prime Day is a great time to purchase new tech while still getting solid deals. If your family members or friends are tech-obsessed early adopters, use Prime Day as an opportunity to get ahead on your Christmas shopping list.

While Amazon hasn’t announced its full sale yet, here are a few deals to watch for:

  • Samsung is sure to have a sale on its array of products on the site, including its latest Galaxy model.
  • For anyone who’s living an Alexa-free life and wants to get in the game, Amazon will likely be offering deals on Echo Dot devices. There’s also the Fire TV Recast, which allows users to store up to 75 hours of programming.
  • If past Prime Days are any indication, you can expect Prime Day deals on other smart home products, including Ring doorbells, alarm systems and video cameras. Expect deals on Amazon’s Blink Mini indoor cameras, as well.
  • You can also find early access deals on Shark Robot vacuums. If you’re searching for a practical yet thoughtful gift for yourself or a family member, check out deals on Instant Pot products.
  • Book lovers who like taking their books on the go in audio form can save $50 on a year of Audible Premium Plus. For those who prefer to read on a device, Amazon is offering deals on Kindle Unlimited for new customers at the time of publishing.
  • The newest niche Amazon is shooting for is high fashion, so it’s no surprise that it’s rolling out some larger deals here. Fashion lovers can save up to 30% on select Vineyard Vines clothing for men, up to 15% on select fall fashion from Shopbop and up to 30% on select styles from Calvin Klein.
