Amazon Prime Day 2018: new tech deals and great discounts

The annual Amazon Prime Day is still in full swing (yes, it lasts more than an actual day), and that means great discounts on fantastic tech products and multimedia, alongside everything in Amazon's vast, vast inventory. In this article, we'll tell you what to look out for and help you find the best tech deals. We've just added even more great sale items, so check it out!

What is Amazon Prime Day?

Amazon Prime Day 2018 marks the 23rd anniversary since Amazon's website went live selling books. To celebrate, Amazon offers a ton of deals only for Prime members.

The official sale period is July 16-17, 2018, but many deals start earlier.

The sales event started at 12 PM Pacific/3 PM Eastern and lasts for 36 hours, making it the longest it has ever been. Over this time there'll just be too many deals to keep track of them all, but we've taken the time to present the best of the best tech-focused discounts for you.

What is Amazon Prime? 

In order to get the Amazon Prime Day deals, you need to be an Amazon Prime member. Being a member has its benefits well beyond being able to join in the Amazon Prime Day sales festivities.

With an Amazon Prime membership you'll get free next day shipping on any purchase through Amazon Prime, and most common items on the site plus free same-day delivery on select items. You also get access to over one million songs with tons of playlists and stations. You can stream popular movies and TV shows for free, including original content from Amazon. And, for you avid readers out there, you can enjoy over 800,000 free e-books. Plus, as of June 27, Prime members get exclusive discounts at Whole Foods.

An Amazon Prime membership is only $119 per year or $12.99 per month. But you can sign up for a free 30 day trial of the program now risk-free and get access to this year's Amazon Prime Day event. Head over and give it a try, signing up is quick and easy.

Can I do Amazon Prime Day shopping without an Amazon Prime membership?

Sort of. If you don't have an Amazon Prime membership, then your best option is to grab a 30-day Amazon Prime free trial. If you've done this previously and your trial's expired, another option is to find a family member who's an Amazon Prime subscriber and ask to join their Amazon Household account.

A cheap, but not free, method of joining the Amazon Prime Day extravaganza is by being a student, in which case you're entitled to get an Amazon Prime membership for 50% off the usual price. For a limited time, students also get a 6-month free trial. You can sign up here.

What are the best Amazon Prime Day deals? 

Throughout the actual sale we will update this page with all of the best tech deals, so you won't have to search through the mountain of products to find the hidden gems.

    I use Prime about once a week for ordering, and the rest of the time for streaming television & music. They've "up'd" the tv part and have a lot wider selection. Still has a way to go, but getting better.
