Prime Day 2019 is just 1 day away, with early access deals dropping today at 3 p.m. ET. Amazon has even offered a sneak preview of deals you can expect from the upcoming July 15 start date this year. We may not know exactly what the first official Prime Day deals will be this afternoon, but chances are pretty good we’ll see Amazon Alexa-enabled devices like Echo smart speakers, Kindles, and Fire TV sticks getting discounts.
Walmart is also having a massive sale today. The summer shopping event is slated to last through Wednesday, July 17, outdoing Amazon’s 48-hour deals event buy an extra day.
Whether those deals will extend to 4K TVs, laptops, or smartphones is undetermined, but there are plenty of those deals going on right now ahead of Prime Day anyway. If you’re looking to save this weekend, we’ve gathered the best Prime Day deals so far below. From the latest MacBooks to electric bikes, We’ll be regularly updating this page with the freshest deals throughout the day.

How do I get early Prime Day deals?
Amazon has announced that you will be able to shop some select deals on devices as early as Sunday, July 14 at 3 p.m ET. All you need to do is ask “Alexa, where are my deals?” to your smart speaker to get access to exclusive member-only savings.
Should I sign up for Amazon Prime today?
Considering the event is just a weekend away, right now is the time to sign up if you haven’t already. If you want to avoid paying for a full year of this service, you can always become a Prime Member by picking up a free 30-day free trial ahead of Monday, July 15. Just make sure you cancel it before your 30 days are up to if you really don’t want Prime.
Prices for Echo, Ring, Fire TV, and Kindle Devices
Amazon Prime Day is mostly well known for having steep price cuts on its flagship devices, and 2019 isn’t going to be an exception to that. With Google Home discounts already live, you can expect Amazon to match or lower their prices even further this year — maybe even as early as tomorrow.

What Prime Day deals can I expect on Monday?
Though Prime Day deals tend to change every year, we have a pretty good idea of what to expect from the preview. From wireless headphones to Alexa-enabled smart speakers, here’s what we think will be discounted for Prime members on Monday.
Prime Day Amazon device deals: We will see price cuts on Echo Dots, Echo Shows, Fire TV Sticks, Amazon Fire Tablets, Kindle e-readers, and Ring Home security devices. Some of these will get discounts as early as Sunday, July 14.
Prime Day headphone deals: This will be one of the best times of the year to snag a pair of wireless headphones or wireless earbuds for a great price. Brands like Sony, Bose, and Beats are all likely to drop awesome deals.
Prime Day smartphone deals: The majority of the savings will likely be on unlocked Samsung Galaxy options. We will also probably see some great savings on OnePlus, LG, and possibly even a few decent iPhone deals.
Prime Day laptop deals: Though previous years have shown us that Prime Day will not offer some of the best laptop deals around, we expect 2019 will be different. We are hoping to see MacBook deals, Chromebook deals, and iPad deals.
Prime Day Apple deals: Apple Watches, iPads, iPhones, MacBooks, external USB-C ports, and more are likely to get price cuts.
Tips for shopping on Prime Day 2019
Prime Day may be known for its deals, but like any buying holiday, it’s up to the consumer to shop responsibly. To help you out, here are some tips for spotting good deals and avoiding pitfalls so you can make the most of your Amazon Prime membership:
Make sure you aren’t the victim of a phishing scam
Some Amazon Prime members have recently been victimized by a phishing scam just in time for Prime Day. There are some ways to avoid this, but you should watch out for anything suspicious to make sure you don’t get your information stolen.
Filter your deals through a trusted source
The easiest way to ensure you find the best possible deal is to have someone do all the hard work for you. If you bookmark this page for later, we’ll have our entire editorial staff digging through the depths of Amazon to deliver the savings to you. If you have trust issues, though, we’ll let you in on few of the tricks and techniques we use for spotting great deals.
Do a quick Google search
One quick Google search on a specific product will often pull up pricing information across the board. If it’s actually on sale, then prices from the likes of Walmart, Best Buy, and the manufacturer page will likely be higher.
Check price histories
There’s a website called CamelCamelCamel that tracks and displays the price history of any item sold on Amazon. Though this only works for Amazon products, it’s an easy way to see whether you’re getting the best deal historically.
Read the warranty
Warranties, in general, are a way of making you feel safer about making a purchase. But if you don’t actually read what your warranty entails, you may regret it later when it becomes necessary.
Read the fine print and comments
A lot of retailers will hide important details where you are least likely to look. Most commonly, this happens with third-party sellers who are trying to get a leg up on their competition by offering deep savings on refurbished tech.
