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.
- 7/16/19 @ 1:46pm: Amazon's matching some of Newegg's hot prices on Ryzen CPUs. (Be sure to check out the best competing sales that Newegg's running on PC parts, too.)
- 7/16/19 @ 12:42pm: Added two Astro gaming headset deals to our gaming headsets and mics section. These prices undercut the last best sales by $30 to $40.
- 7/16/19 @ 3:30am: We've added deals for bluetooth trackers and home theater audio gear, along with more bargains on cameras, headphones and movies. (Harry Potter fans are in luck right now.)
- 7/15/19 @ 1:53pm: We've added more PC part, audio, storage, and networking deals.
Note: In order to participate in Amazon Prime Day, you must be an Amazon Prime member. You can sign up for a free 30-day trial to take advantage of these sales prices, and then cancel before you’re charged for the $120 yearly membership fee. For more details (and other ways to get Prime for free), check out this article.
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.

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.

(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.
Soundbars, speakers, and audio equipment

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.

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.

[Liquid Cooled Ryzen 7 2700X, 16GB RAM, RTX 2080 8GB, 1TB SSD, Wi-Fi]
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.
- $269 - Acer Aspire 5, 15.6" Full HD IPS Display (A515-43-R19L)

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.

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.

Best Smart Home deals
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:
- Echo (2nd Generation) - $50 (50% off)
- Echo Dot (3rd Gen) - $22 (56% off)
- Echo Plus (2nd Gen) - $110 (27% off)
- Echo Show (2nd Gen) - $160 (30% off)
- Echo Show 5 - $50 (44% off)
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.
Smart locks, alarms, and doorbells
- Ring Wi-Fi Enabled Video Doorbell (first gen) with Echo Dot (3rd Gen) - $70 (53% off)
- Ring Alarm 5 Piece Kit + Echo Dot (3rd Gen) - $119 (52% off)
- Ring Alarm 8 Piece Kit + Echo Dot (3rd Gen) - $144 (55% off)
- Yale Assure Lock SL with Z-Wave Plus - $153 (30% off)
- Ring Video Doorbell Pro with Echo Dot (3rd Gen) - $169 (43% off)
- August Smart Lock Pro + Connect, 3rd gen - $175 (37% off)
- Ring Alarm 14 Piece Kit + Echo Dot (3rd Gen) - $199 (58% off)
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.
Smart security cameras

- Arlo Pro Wireless Home Security Camera System 5 camera kit, Cloud Storage Included - $509.07 (38% off)

- Kasa 1080p HD Cam Outdoor by TP-Link - 49% off
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."
Smart light bulbs

- Kasa Smart WiFi Light Bulb, Tunable White (KL120) - $23 (33% off)
- Kasa Smart WiFi Light Bulb, Multicolor (KL130) - $21 (23% off)
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.
- Kasa Smart WiFi 2 Outlet Outdoor Plug by TP-Link - $30 (25% off)
- Kasa Smart WiFi Plug Mini by TP-Link - $40 (27% off)
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.
