First things first: to enter the offers, you must be an Amazon Prime subscriber. You can start with a free 30-day trial for the service, then let it renew automatically or cancel it once the test is over.

Following the cadence established in previous years, Amazon will launch new Spotlight offers and Lightning offers throughout the Prime Day (s). Then, while some of the savings will last throughout the two-day period, others will and will come in a matter of hours, or less.

Below you will find only the best deals on Android phones, 4K TVs, tablets, smart screens, gaming technology, PC components, speakers, headphones and much more. We will be monitoring sales, updating this page with new additions and eliminating inactive ones along the way.

  • Google Pixel 3A XL costs $ 479.99, its usual price, but it comes with an Amazon gift card of $ 100 with the purchase. The Google Pixel 3A is a great value, as it uses the same great Pixel 3 camera for a fraction of the price. If you're not waiting for Google Pixel 4 to launch later this year and do not need a phone with a lot of power, the 3A XL should be right for you.

  • Moto G7 costs $ 229.99 (usually $ 299.99)

  • Razer Phone 2 costs $ 399.99 (usually $ 649.99)

  • Nokia 7.1 costs $ 249 (usually $ 349). This phone runs the latest Android 9 Pie software (and timely software and security updates are guaranteed until the end of 2020, as part of Google's Android One initiative). They work only in GSM operators (AT & T, T-Mobile, Cricket, T-Mobile Metro), and if you are in one of those operators, this is a good value, as long as you do not expect it to be a flagship. Speeds and performance of the stellar camera.


  • The iPad (last generation, Wi-Fi, 128 GB of storage) costs $ 299 (usually $ 329). Apple's sixth-generation iPad is an excellent tablet if you're looking for an iPad that does not cost you more than $ 500. Dieter Bohn called this the "best tablet under $ 500" in 2018, and although he now faces more competition Since the launch of the new iPad Air and iPad mini, this is still a fantastic value. This is also the lowest price we've seen for the 128GB model for $ 30.

  • iPad Pro 10.5 (previous generation, Wi-Fi and LTE, 256GB storage) costs $ 629 (usually $ 929)

  • iPad Pro 10.5 (previous generation, Wi-Fi and LTE, storage of 512 GB) costs $ 699 (usually $ 1,129)

  • Amazon Kindle Paperwhite with 32GB of storage costs $ 109.99 (usually $ 159.99). If you are in the market for a new electronic reader, do it this way. Chaim Gartenberg spent time with almost all electronic readers in the market, but this one stood out as the best in terms of features with its waterproofing, a very clear and sharp 300ppi screen, and backlighting. It also has much more internal storage than the traditional 8GB model, which can be filled with Audible audiobooks.

  • The Amazon Fire 7 tablet will cost $ 29.99 (usually $ 49.99)

  • The Amazon Fire HD 8 tablet will cost $ 49.99 (usually $ 79.99)
