No doubt you’ll find discounts on everything you need to start checking family and friends off your holiday gifting list as well as deals on everyday essentials you’ve been meaning to stock up on.
With so many items on sale, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed, but don’t fret: CNN Underscored has rounded up all the Prime Day deals you need to know about below. If you see something you like, act quickly — stuff is known to sell out fast on Prime Day. We’ll be updating this post throughout the day as the sales come and go, so be sure to check back often.
Our pick for best over-ear and noise cancellation headphones is seeing quite the deal. Sony’s WH-1000XM4 are down to just $298 from $348 and a $25 Amazon gift card is thrown into the mix. These headphones are not only comfortable with improved padding but deliver balanced robust sound, class-leading noise cancellation and long battery life.
Our top pick for best earbuds for working out are down to their all-time-low on Amazon for Prime Day. Powerbeats Pro feature a comfortable and stable design with an ear-hook that wraps around your ear, deliver robust sound with ample bass and offer fast pairing for Apple devices.
Whether you want to expand storage on your smartphone, tablet or even a Nintendo Switch, SanDisk is here to help. With 128GB ($19.99), 256GB ($23.49), 400GB ($45.93), 512GB ($79.99) and 1TB ($182.99) all discounted you can’t go wrong with any size.
The Note 20 Ultra might have just launched in August, but it’s seeing an epic $250 off discount. It’s currently the best android smartphone on the market in our eyes and features top of the line hardware across the board like a 6.9-inch Super AMOLED display, a triple camera array with 50x space zoom and a zippy processor.
Apple’s entry-level AirPods still best most other true wireless earbuds out there. With the H1 chip inside you’ll get fast pairing across all Apple devices (and easy switching with iOS 14) as well as hands-free “Hey Siri” support. Better yet, you get five hours of playback and over 24 hours of playtime with charges from the carrying case.
With an eero mesh Wi-Fi system you can improve your whole home network and provide more room for many more devices. You’ll strategically place these eero nodes around your home to spread coverage further – up to 5,000 square feet. And eero will intelligently connect your device from node to node for the best coverage.
These on-ear noise canceling headphones are our runner up pick in the category and are over $100 off. The Solo Pro features a comfortable and modern design in fun colors with terrific hardware inside. These will fast pair with Apple devices thanks to the H1 cheap, feature active noise cancellation and even sport a transparency mode.
The Surface Pro X is Microsoft’s next-gen 2-in-1 with a custom ARM processor powering Windows 10 and both Wi-Fi + Cellular connectivity out of the box. You get an expansive 13” screen inside an incredibly portable build at just 7.3-millimters thick and 1.7 pounds. You can bundle it with a TypeCover and a Surface Pen for $1,285, down from $1,569.98.
With Apple’s 2020 iPhone family likely being announced today and rumors saying no power plug in the box, it’s a good time to pick one up. And the Anker Nano not only is incredibly compact, but it can fast charge your iPhone (or really any smartphone) at 20-watts.
You can really never go wrong with an Echo Dot, especially at just $18.99. It’s the easiest way to add Alexa to a room, but you’re getting more than just a virtual assistant. Alexa can be your DJ from a variety of sources or even turn your Echo into a Bluetooth speaker. Better yet, you get to pick your color: Charcoal, Heather Gray, Plum or Sandstone. You can even bundle an Echo Dot with an Amazon Smart Plug for just $23.99, down from $74.98.
The most affordable Echo is even more affordable right now. The Echo Flex is down to just $9.99 and is the simplest way to add Alexa to a room, as you simply just plug it into an outlet. There are even attachments like a motion sensor, nightlight or LED clock that can clip into the bottom to give this some more utility.
If most of your tasks are web-based, you really can’t go wrong with a Chromebook. And the Acer 514 is a 14” Chromebook powered by an Intel Celeron chip with 32GB of storage. Fear not on that last spec though, ChromeOS mostly lives in the cloud. And this is a great device for streaming, emails, word processing and even school work. Plus you can venture into the Play Store and run some Android apps.
SanDisk 128GB microSD card with 12-months of Nintendo Switch Online ($39.99, originally $69.98; amazon.com)
If you have a Nintendo Switch or Switch Lite, this deal is for you. You can score a 128GB microSD card (which equals more storage for games and save files) and a year of Nintendo Switch Online for just $39.99. These two together would normally cost just shy of $70. And that online subscription lets you play with friends across the globe and access over 70 classic Nintendo titles.
The Echo Studio isn’t just the biggest Alexa smart speaker made by Amazon, but it’s the loudest with the most robust sound. In our testing, we found that it can really pump out the jams with strong bass. That’s thanks to five speakers inside and support for Dolby Atmos which mixes the music for your room.
Our TV luxury pick is seeing a mighty fine discount this Prime Day. The Sony A8H OLED 4K TV is just $1,298 for the 55-inch and it provides one of the best pictures of any TV we tested. The A8H delivers superior contrast with pitch black darks, vibrant hues and even softer pastels. It’s the complete package and features an Android TV smart interface.
Apple’s AirPods Pro are our top pick for best true wireless earbuds and for good reason. They’re epic across the board with seriously impressive active noise cancellation, comfortable silicone tips that seal off the ear, fast pairing with Apple devices and nearly five hours of battery life with ANC engaged. And they’re $50 off right now.
Looking for a pair of seriously long lasting true wireless earbuds? Those would be the Galaxy Buds_+which sport 11 hours of playback from the earbuds and up to 22 hours when you factor in the case. They also boast a wide soundstage and a sleek design that doesn’t stick out from the ear as much.
Just over $400 for a 5G enabled phone with a big 6.7-inch display? That’s the Galaxy A71 5G and at $419.99 it’s down to an all time low price. It boasts a sleek design and a three camera array on the back. You’ll find a selfie cam in a pinhole notch on the front.
We just declared the Galaxy Tab S7 the best android tablet and it’s now seeing a fresh discount on Amazon.com. You can score this 11-inch tablet for just $549.99 and that price includes the S Pen. Out of the box it’s running Android 10 with a Samsung One user interface on top. It will be zippy-fast thanks to a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor inside as well.
The 8th Gen iPad is just a month old and it truly delivers extreme value at full price. But for nearly $30 less, it goes into epic territory. This 10.2-inch iPad bests nearly any other tablet at this price point thanks to the A12 Bionic processor inside. With it, you can take full advantage of iPadOS 14 and any application from the App Store.
Amazon’s entry level smart screen, the Echo Show 5, is down to just $44.99. With the 5.5-inch screen and single speaker you won’t only hear Alexa’s responses, but she’ll add some visuals into the mix. The addition of a screen also lets you take video calls, watch a movie and even learn to cook. You can even bundle it with a Blink Mini Indoor Smart Security Camera for just $49.99, down from $124.98.
The Echo Show 8 is Amazon’s middle smart display -— it’s larger than the Echo Show 5 with an 8-inch display and better speakers inside. It keeps all the functionality of an Alexa smart speaker but adds in visuals. You can watch a movie or a TV show, learn how to cook, stream music and even video call with friends or family. You can bundle it with an Amazon Smart Plug for $69.99, down from $158.98.
