For Amazon Prime Day 2019, the number of deals have increased dramatically. Amazon’s competition has grown, too—but still, this annual summer sale has a long way to go before it rivals Black Friday.
Still, during our hours of poring over deals, we found respectable deals in multiple categories—you’ll find everything from chargers to TVs on the cheap. Tech enthusiasts can find a few diamonds in the rough, too. Overall, it’ll pay off to check out both Amazon and rivals like Dell, Walmart, and Newegg, especially if you’re shopping for a laptop.
Deals will roll out continually over the course of Prime Day (between July 15 12 a.m. PT and July 16 11:59 p.m. PT), so be sure to check this page regularly for updates. We’ll update this article as new deals and new pricing information become available.
The discounts listed below were picked based on information available at press time, Amazon user reviews, and our own experiences with the products when applicable.
We’ve listed the most notable all-day deals below, sorted by category. Our picks focus primarily on PC and Android gear, as well as entertainment and smart-home products. Dedicated Apple fans will want check out our round-up of the best Prime Day bargains on Apple gear.
Be aware that all-day deals can run out of stock before Prime Day is over.
As for Lightning Deals, the company has again increased the number of those short, timed sales. Because they vary in duration and can end with an abrupt halt if their allotted inventory runs out, we won’t list the best of those. We do have some tips to help you make the most of Lightning Deals, though.

This category grows larger and larger each year, so we’ve highlighted only the best deals below. For more Amazon Kindle and Fire tablet deals, check out our separate story for the lowdown.
All of these particular Amazon house products are at their lowest prices ever. The full-sized Echo in particular has gotten a tidy reduction, but the Fire TV sticks also sport prices that undercut Black Friday 2018’s sales. And two freshly revamped Kindles, each sporting a new feature (a front-light for the entry-level model, and waterproofing for the Paperwhite), also get discounts despite their newness.
This year, you can grab Samsung and Google phones at great prices. You can catch all the details in our smartphone deals article.
Here are a few highlights:
Other configurations—and phones—are available as well.
Need a few spare cables? Amazon is running a deal on its AmazonBasics cables for Android phones and iPhones, with a variety of colors and lengths, all for excellent prices.
Need to charge multiple smartphones and/or tablets? Amazon’s in-house brand has several options at all-time lows, so whether you have just a handful or a whole horde of devices to juice up, you’re covered.
Fans of bluetooth audio devices are in luck this Prime Day, as two popular brands slash prices on a few beloved products. The Jabra Elite 65t true wireless earbuds are a particularly good deal, as they match an all-time low price that last available during Black Friday 2018.
Never lose your keys or wallet again with these all-time low prices on Tile’s popular bluetooth trackers. The latest generation comes with replaceable batteries, which gives them far longer longevity than previous iterations.
Looking for a new fitness tracker or smartwatch? We’ve got you covered with our separate deals list that covers Fitbits, Garmin bands, Apple Watch, and more.
DNA test kits have exploded in popularity in the last year—and for Prime Day, tests from the two most popular services are on sale. Of the two, 23andMe’s kit boasts the biggest discount; you’re essentially getting its upgraded test for the list price of its basic test. (For more information about DNA testing and the different companies offering them, you can check our reviews.)
Last year’s DVD, Blu-Ray, and 4K Blu-Ray sales favored sci-fi fans. For 2019, the selections are more scattered across genres, and a few of the deals aren’t quite all-time lows. (Though they are still very good prices.) The best bargains are The Sopranos: The Complete Series Blu-Ray collection, the How to Train Your Dragon 3-movie set, and the Mission: Impossible 6 movie collection.
With the exception of the Denon turntable, all of this home theater audio gear matches previous best prices. Sales are relatively rare on this equipment, though, so even a non-all-time-low willl help those who’ve been waiting for some kind of discount.
Amazon has its Fire TV sticks on sale, but there’s more out there that can be had for less than usual. Head on over to our round-up of the best Amazon Prime Day deals for cord-cutters for all the details.
We expect more TV deals to come (check out our best Prime Day TV deals round-up for updates on those), but this one isn’t a bad one to start with. This popular Sony model comes with HDR support and an IPS screen, and serves as an affordable mid-tier option for those torn between quality and price.
The Amazon deal gods smiled upon the PC for Prime Day 2019: We’ve never seen quite so many deals. However, those same deities might have been a little tipsy when selecting their chosen bargains, because the opening spread is a bit eclectic. If you’re in the market for a Chromebook in particular, you’re in luck—there are quite a few to choose from.
Gaming Headsets and Mics
All of these keyboards are at an all-time low, but this is the first time we’ve seen this version of the K95 at $110. That price shaves off another $20 off the previous best deal.
We’d pen a Dr. Seuss poem if we could about these Chromebooks, but let’s just say instead that no matter the screen size, processor type, storage size, or form factor (traditional vs. convertible), these Amazon Prime Day Chromebook sales should have you covered. Every one of them is at an all-time lowest price or very near to it.
These days, it’s once again cheaper to build a PC instead of buying a pre-built, since GPU, SSD, and RAM prices are back to normal prices. (In the case of SSDs, they’re actually cheaper than what used to be normal.)
That said, these three PCs do provide good value for pre-builts—they’re pretty close in cost to their DIY equivalents, and when you factor in cost of labor and time saved, the extra cash you’ll spend is a very fair amount.
Of note are the Aspire 5, Aspire E 15 (one of our favorite budget laptops), the HP Envy 13, and the Helios 300. The Aspire E 15 is down to an all-time low (it’s finally dipped below the $300 mark!), while the Envy 13 stuffs in quite a bit of kit (like a 4K touchscreen) for the price you’ll pay. For gaming laptops, the Helios 300 packs the latest hardware for a very tidy price.
As for the Razer laptop—well, a 1060 Max-Q hardly sounds like a bargain these days, but when you factor in the Razer premium (which is about as bad as the Apple premium), this actually is a deal.
Looking for more laptop deals? We’ve crawled through sales on Dell, Newegg, and more—check out our findings here.
Corsair (now parent company of Elgato) has gone all out this Prime Day and discounted multiple items favored by streamers. Each item is below its all-time low, and in the case of the 4K60 Pro and Key Light, even less than its last best price.
Like the PC deals, the PC component bargains are also a little bit random. You’ll find some great parts in the mix, though. The most interesting of them is the Threadripper 2920X, which is now available for a song thanks to the recent Ryzen 3000 launch. You’re in luck if you need tons of PCIe lanes for your next build on the cheap.
Looking for even more component sales? Newegg’s been offering competing sales, which have easily matched Amazon’s best and one-upped them.
Fans of tempered glass are in luck: Prime Day’s best case sales all feature a glass panel, and you get both affordable and premium options to choose from. We’re partial to the Thermaltake C36 and its 200mm fans, but all of these options are at their lowest prices ever.
We’ve seen prices in this range before, but that doesn’t stop this RX 570 from enjoying a respectable discount.
Hard disk drives
Whether you need massive amounts of storage for your desktop PC or a NAS, these all-time low prices have you covered. In particular, the Seagate IronWolf 6TB and WD Red 10TB drives have the best discounts.
Solid-state drive prices have been in free fall for months now, so we recommend that you wait if you don’t have a urgent need for a high-capacity SSD. Even with the looming threat of tariffs, we think that Black Friday will have better prices. However, if you need a 2TB or 4TB SSD now, these prices are superb.
Prime Day 2019 includes a healthy amount of bargains on external storage—all prices listed are the lowest we’ve seen. We’re partial to the $77 4TB Canvio drive, especially if you need something inexpensive to take with you on the go. It’ll work with a gaming console like the Xbox One S or PlayStation 4, too.
These deals aren’t earth-shattering, but they are actually the best we’ve seen for these inexpensive flash drives.
The prices on the lower-capacity SD and microSD cards are about average for sales on flash media. The standouts are the 400GB and 512GB cards, which have hit an all-time low prices.
Of the networking gear on sale, several of the Nighthawk routers are very good deals—down to their lowest prices yet. Both Netgear and TrendNET have power-over-ethernet switches at affordable prices, too, which are useful if you’ve recently hopped on board the Ubiquiti train but have been trying to minimize your costs.
This dongle might not be the sexiest tech purchase, but with laptops being almost comically thin (looking at you, MacBook Pro), this networking accessory is a must-have for environments with weak Wi-Fi.
As Prime Day chugs along, we’ve spotted more mesh router deals—and among them are some lowest-ever prices on the popular Netgear Orbi system. You’ll capture savings between a few dollars to a few Hamiltons on these particular sales. If Netgear isn’t your jam, you can also snag some user-favorite systems from other maufacturers at great discount, like the TP-Link Deco hybrid mesh/powerline kit. Right now it’s a full $50 lower than the last best price.
It wouldn’t be Prime Day without some killer deals on smart-home devices. From speakers to doorbells, alarms, cameras, and everything in between, Amazon has pulled out all the stops, with enough deals to turn any house from boring to brainy. Here are the best deals we’ve found so far:
We’re big fans of Amazon’s Echo speakers, naming the Echo Spot as our top smart speaker and the Echo Dot as the best entry-level smart speaker in our roundup. While the Echo Spot isn’t part of this sale, however, the brand new Echo Show 5 is, with Amazon slashing $40 off its price tag to bring it down to $50. We’re still in the process of reviewing the five-inch Show, but it left a great impression in our hands on, with a great compact design and excellent Alexa support. And if you don’t want a screen in your smart speaker, the other options here are great too, with most at or near all-time-low prices.
If you’re looking for peace of mind in your smart home, there are some great options here. The August Smart Lock Pro is one of the best locks in the business, earning our pick as the best retrofit smart lock in our roundup. We also like the Ring Alarm system, calling it “an absolute bargain” with a “smooth-as-silk installation process” and “everything it needs to grow into a comprehensive smart home system,” so any of the nicely discounted options (which include varying amounts of sensors, motion detectors, and keypads) here will serve you well. And finally, the Ring Doorbell is on sale for the lowest price we’ve seen. Both models come with a free Echo Dot for Alexa integration, but keep in mind that the Pro is one for wired connections, so if you don’t have an existing doorbell, the all-time-low price on the first-gen WiFi model is the way to go. And finally, the Yale Assure Lock SL with Z-Wave Plus is a fantastic improvement over the Bluetooth model, even if it does eat through batteries pretty quickly.
Nest might get all of the attention in the security camera space, but TP-Link’s Kasa Cams are excellent low-priced options, and the deals here make them even more attractive. The cameras capture “tack-sharp images in both 720p and 1080p resolution, with rich colors and even lighting … with robust features you often don’t see at this price.”
The Kasa Smart WiFi bulbs don’t score as high as the Hue bulbs, but they’re still solid options for anyone looking for affordable smart lighting in their homes. With three options—a color-tunable bulb (KL130), a white-tunable bulb (KL120), and a white dimmable/non-tunable bulb (KL110)—all pumping out 800 lumens. of light, and easy scheduling and presets in the app, the Kasa bulbs offer everything you need to get your smart home running, with no hub required.
TP-Link’s Kasa plugs are among our favorite for turning dumb devices smart. The two-outlet outdoor plug is affordable and functional, and offer “enough compelling upgrades here … to justify paying the premium,” as we wrote in our review, and the indoor Plug Mini is easy to use and reliable.
