It’s summertime again, and that means that along with beach vacations and pina coladas, it’s also the season for Amazon Prime Day, and your opportunity to grab some great deals.
This year, Amazon’s making Prime Day a two-day event — a full 48 hours compared to last year’s 36 — so there’s even more time to shop. However, as with Prime Day in prior years, the deals will come and go — some are only posted while quantities last, while others are limited for different reasons, although fortunately Amazon will be continually posting more new deals through the day, so it’s not a static event and you’ll want to keep checking back.
This year Amazon is promising over a million deals on a wide range of products, but of course as the name implies you’ll need to be an Amazon Prime member to take advantage of the deals; fortunately, Amazon is still letting you sign up for a free 30-day trial membership — as long as you’ve never been a Prime member before — in the hopes that you’ll like it enough to keep it. If you’ve previously had a Prime membership, you likely won’t get the free trial, but you can still just sign up for a single month for $12.99 and cancel later if you’re simply looking to take advantage of the deals.

In terms of actual Apple hardware, Amazon is offering some pretty great discounts of up to 40 percent on select Apple Watches.
If the Apple Watch Series 4 is more your style, that’s on sale too, but only the GPS version, at least for now, with the aluminum Apple Watch Series 4 (GPS, 44mm) selling for $399.
It’s worth keeping an eye on Apple’s 11-inch iPad Pro, as we’ve heard reports of up to $125 off on the 64 GB version, although this is one of those deals that may come and go over the course of the Prime Day event.
On the other hand, Apple’s 10.5-inch iPad Pros are also going for 30–38 percent off, depending on capacity and cooler:
- Apple iPad Pro (10.5-inch, Wi-Fi + Cellular, 64GB) – Silver — $579
- Apple iPad Pro (10.5-inch, Wi-Fi + Cellular, 256GB) – Gold — $649
- Apple iPad Pro (10.5-inch, Wi-Fi + Cellular, 256GB) – Rose Gold — $649
- Apple iPad Pro (10.5-inch, Wi-Fi + Cellular, 512GB) – Rose Gold — $699
Amazon is also offering $80 off on Apple’s entry-level iPad, with the 32GB model selling for $249.
Apple’s Headphones: AirPods and Beats
Apple’s Beats Solo3 Wireless On-Ear Headphones are also on sale for $139.99 — an additional $55 off the already low price that Amazon usually sells them for, while the Beats EP wired on-ear headphone can be had for $65, if you’re willing to go with the white version; prices for the other colors range from $70–$80.
- 15-inch, 2.6GHz 6-core 9th-generation Intel Core i7 processor, 256GB (Latest Model) – $209 Off
- 15-inch, 2.3GHz 8-core 9th-generation Intel Core i9 processor, 512GB (Latest Model) – $240 Off
There will undoubtedly be more Prime Day goodness to come as Amazon continues to debut new deals over the course of today and tomorrow, so be sure to check back as we’ll post any new deals we discover as they come up.
