As packages stream out of warehouses, Amazon has released some figures for Prime Day, as they do every year after the big sales event. While last year’s big achievement was simply surpassing the previous year’s Prime Day in sales, this year’s Prime Day surpassed even last Black Friday and Cyber Monday in sales, making yesterday the biggest sales day ever in Amazon history.
Last Prime Day, the best-selling item was the Amazon Fire TV Stick for $24.99 (37% off), but since Fire TV device’s didn’t go on sale for Prime Day this year in the US, the Amazon Echo Dot at $34.99 (30% off) was the best-selling product of the day across Amazon globally. However, the Fire TV line didn’t stay completely out of the limelight, since the Element 55″ Fire TV Edition television at $399.99 (38% off) was the best-selling TV deal in Amazon history, even though it sold out in under 4 hours.
With just a few hours left in the day, Amazon’s 3rd annual Prime Day is starting to wind down. What did you buy? Let’s hear about the deals you snagged in the comments.
Since the Prime Day Fire TV Edition television deal has sold out, and doesn’t look like it’ll be returning anytime today, here is a collection of the best Prime Day TV deals that have already gone live. I’ll be continuously updating this throughout the day as new deals go live. Read more ›
Today’s Prime Day Deals on Fire Tablets are lower than any of these tablets have ever been in the past, but the real killer deals come with the available Fire Tablet Variety Packs that Amazon is offering. In the past, there was usually no point to buying the tablet packs because you would end up spending the same amount whether you purchased a pack of tablets or if you purchased them individually. This Prime Day however, Amazon has done tablet packs right and stepped up the savings for buying 2 or 3 Fire tablets at a time. The 3 pack of Fire 7 Tablets is $79.97, which is a savings of $10 over buying them individually at today’s $29.99 sale price. The 2 pack of Fire 7 Kids Edition Tablets are $119.98, which is a savings of $20 over buying them individually at today’s $69.99 price. The 3 pack of Fire HD 8 Tablets is $119.97, which is a savings of $30 over buying them individually at today’s $49.99 sale price. Lastly, the 2 pack of Fire HD 8 Kids Edition Tablets are $149.98, which is also a savings of $30 over buying them individually at today’s $89.99 price. If you’re buying any of the Fire Tablets today, consider buying the multi-packs to get that extra savings. You can try to find a friend or family member to split the tablet pack with, or just save the extra tablets to give as gifts later in the year.
If you’ve picked up a new Amazon Echo Dot for the new all time low price of $34.99 today, or if you already have one, one of the best accessories to have is a Bluetooth speaker. Whether it’s just a little mini speaker for when you want a bit more volume than the Echo Dot can produce, or if it’s a higher end speaker with room filling sound, the Echo Dot becomes much more useful with an available Bluetooth speaker nearby. Here’s a rundown of the top Prime Day Deals on Bluetooth speakers. I’ll be updating this list throughout the day as new deals go live and old ones expire. Read more ›

Can’t decide between the Amazon Echo Dot deal for $34.99 and the Amazon Tap deal for $79.99? Well, you can have the best of both worlds for less than the price of the Amazon Tap. That’s because the VAUX Speaker & Portable Battery for the Echo Dot just went on sale for $39.96. It essentially converts the Echo Dot into an Amazon Tap by adding a speaker and rechargeable battery. I’ve never tried the product myself, so I can’t speak to its quality, but it has a great 4.2 star review rating. It claims to have 6 hours of battery life and includes a pair of 52mm Speaker Drivers. While it’s not as small and sleek as the Amazon Tap, it seems like the ultimate option to have portability coupled with the better far field microphone array in the Echo Dot. A look at the device’s price history reveals it has never been on sale before today.

If you missed out on yesterday’s great deal on the Element 55″ Fire TV Edition television, this new deal that just went live is your next best bet. On sale is a bundle that includes the Element 50″ Fire TV Edition television, Sound Bar, and Digital Antenna for $499.99. That’s $160 off the regular price of all three items purchased separately. The included 50″ Fire TV Edition television normally sells for $549.99 on its own, so you’re essentially getting the Sound Bar and OTA DIgital Antenna for free, plus saving $50. The previous deal on the 55″ television was one of the fastest things to sell out this Prime Day, so act fast if you’re interested in this deal.

Amazon Warehouse has expanded the selection of items that qualify for 20% off today only. This is where you’ll find the absolute lowest prices, as long as you don’t mind lightly used and like-new returned items. Example deals include a Kindle Paperwhite for $49, Amazon Tap for $68, Xbox One for $154, Samsung 55″ 4K TV for under $700, LG 55″ OLED TV for $945 , and much more. Many of the best deals are specific to one-off items, so once they’re purchased, they’re gone, so act fast.
Amazon just launched a new promotion where Amazon Visa and Amazon Store Card holders will receive 20% cash back on thousands of items. There are over 4,000 items that qualify, so your best bet is to use the category selector on the sidebar to click through a few that interest you. Some standout deals include a GoPro HERO5 Black for $319 and GoPro accessories. The Jaybird X3 Bluetooth headphones can be had for $79.99, which matches the lowest price they’ve ever been. Hundreds of Ray-Ban sunglasses are included, as is software from Adobe. There are also about a dozen Disney Pixar toys with bonus cash back rewards and dozens of Swiss Army knives to save on. With this bonus 20% reward, many of these items are at all time low prices, so it’s worth taking the time to browse through. The discount will appear on your next card statement as cash back.
The Amazon Echo Show is unfortunately not on sale during Prime Day, but you can save a little if you buy it bundled with a security camera. The Echo Show and Arlo Camera Bundle is on sale for $303.99, which is $75 less than the price of buying each item individually. These two items are being bundled together because you can ask Alexa on the Echo Show to display the camera feed directly on its built-in screen. This bundle does include the Arlo home base, so you can add additional cameras at anytime. The only other discount available for the Echo Show is a savings of $100 if you buy two and use promo code SHOW2PACK during checkout, but that promotion cannot be combined with this bundle.

Amazon currently has select colors of the Echo Dot Fabric Cases on sale for $9.99 and the Amazon Tap Sling Cover on sale for $14.99. These are normally priced $14.99 and $19.99 respectively.

The colors on sale are Indio (blue), Charcoal (black), and Sandstone (white). The Echo Dot case also comes in 3 leather colors, but those are not on sale. As for the Amazon Tap case, it’s great at protecting the device, especially if you have kids who use it or plan to take the Tap outside. The colors on sale are Green, Magenta, Tangerine, and White. The Amazon Echo Dot is still on sale for $34.99 and the Amazon Tap is still on sale for $79.99.

If you still haven’t signed up for 4 months of Amazon Music Unlimited for just $0.99, today is the last day. This offer ends tonight at midnight, along with all of the other Prime Day Deals. The beauty of this offer is that there is absolutely no commitment necessary. You can literally cancel the subscription immediately after signing up, and continue to enjoy access to over 30 million songs for 4 months without worrying about remembering to cancel later. If you decide you like the service, you can decide to re-sign up once the 4 months are over. This is by far the best music subscription deal around.

The Moto G5 Plus 64GB Prime Exclusive Phone is on sale for $179.99 for Prime Day. That’s a whopping $60 off its already great price as a Prime Exclusive phone. This is for the higher end 64GB model that comes with 4GB of RAM, instead of just the 2GB on the 32GB model. This phone is compatible with all major US carriers, including AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon, and Sprint. It is currently one of the flagship phones in Amazon’s lineup of Prime Exclusive Phones.

The Element 55″ Fire TV Edition television deal for Prime Day has now sold out. At nearly 40% off the regular price, the $399.99 deal was too good for many to pass up. While the deal was live, it had a timer counting down until midnight. There is a very slight chance that a second Prime Day Spotlight Deal for the TV could start at midnight PT, with additon units reserved for the actual Prime Day itself. So if you missed out on the deal, try to hold out a few more hours.
Amazon has over 200 movies on sale for $10 or less for Prime Day. Many are recent 2017 releases, like The LEGO Batman Movie, Logan, Life, Get Out, A Dog’s Purpose, The Great Wall, Split, and many others. There are also many full TV Show seasons for $10 or less. Now would be a great time to use any digital No-Rush credit you may have earned recently.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like the Amazon Fire TV or Fire TV Stick are going to be discounted this year for Prime Day. If you’re itching to get a deal on a streaming media device, then the NVIDIA Shield TV for $179.99 is your best option. This is only $20 off the regular price of $199.99, but the new 2017 Shield TV, which now includes both a remote and game controller, has never been on sale before, so this is the lowest price it has ever been.

Amazon is running a Prime Day promotion where you will receive 15% cash back on select Samsung electronics when you use an Amazon Store Card or Amazon Visa Card at checkout.
