The best Amazon Prime Day deals of 2018


— Our editors review and recommend products to help you buy the stuff you need. If you make a purchase by clicking one of our links, we may earn a small share of the revenue. However, our picks and opinions are independent from USA Today’s newsroom and any business incentives.

Editor’s note: We will be updating this post regularly until Prime Day winds down. Be sure to check back often for the latest deals and offers that are actually worth your time.

Prime Day is officially underway. With thousands of retailers adding new deals throughout the 36-hour sales event, the Reviewed staff is working tirelessly to scour the online shelves and bring you only the best deals. We’ve tested many of these items ourselves and are confident they are high-quality products at better-than-usual sale prices. Those we haven’t tested, we put through a stringent vetting process to ensure that not only are the deals actually a good value, but that the items are what they claim to be.

Amazon Prime Day runs from Monday, July 16 at 12 p.m. PST (3 p.m. EST) through Tuesday, July 17 at 11:59 p.m. PST (July 18 3 a.m. EST). To access the savings, you need to be a Prime member. You can get a free trial that lasts 30 days, shop Prime Day, enjoy free 2-day shipping, and try the other membership perks. Then, you can keep it if you like it (it costs $119/year or $12.99/month) or cancel without paying a dime.

We are updating this post every few minutes, so pin this tab to your browser or leave it open on your phone and check back often to see what’s new. Something missing that you swore was there before? That means the deal is no longer available. These sales move fast, so you should too.

Top Prime Day Deals

Amazon Devices

It’s no surprise that Amazon’s deals on its own devices are some of the best, but these are all the lowest prices we’ve ever seen on these devices, so it’s the perfect time to take the plunge (or grow your collection).

Amazon Services and Exclusive Brands

  • Whole Foods: There are lots of deals in-store at Whole Foods for Prime Day. And if you spend at least $10 at a Whole Foods any time between now and the end of Prime Day and get $10 to spend on Prime Day deals. You’ll need the Whole Foods app, and it must be synced to your Amazon Prime account (or you can give the cashier the phone number associated with your Prime account).
  • Amazon Music Unlimited: New subscribers can get 4 months for $0.99. It’s typically $7.99/month for Prime members and $9.99/month for everyone else to stream millions of songs from phones, Amazon devices, desktops, and more.
  • Audible: New subscribers can save 66% on their first 3 months of Audible. It usually costs $14.95/month regardless of whether you have Prime, but this deal basically gives you 2 months free (at $5/month for 3 months).
  • Prime VideoSave up to 50% on movie rentals, with some as cheap as $1.99.
  • Amazon BasicsSave up to 20% on select AmazonBasics products, from electric kettles and paper shredders to hangers, blankets lightbulbs, and more.
  • Amazon furniture, bedding, lighting, rugs, and decorSave up to 25% off Amazon brands like Rivet, Pinzon, and Stone & Beam. I own this Rivet side table (sorry, it’s not on sale right now) and absolutely love it.
  • Amazon brand everyday essentialsSave 30% on select grocery, baby, household, beauty, supplements, and other Amazon-branded everyday items.
  • Amazon HandmadeSave 20% on a whole bunch of handmade goods from individual creators and small businesses in Amazon’s Handmade section. You can find home goods, jewelry, artwork, pet supplies, and more.
