Prime Day was launched four years ago to celebrate Amazon’s 20th anniversary and call attention to its membership service. This year, the 36-hour sale starts at 3 p.m. ET on Monday, July 16 and runs through Tuesday night, July 17. Amazon is offering more than one million deals for Prime Members, and our staff will be combing through them looking for the best discounts on home and electronics products.

Some vendors offer deals to all shoppers on Prime Day, but most of the discounts are reserved for Prime subscribers. A Prime membership gives you access to Amazon’s streaming video service, Twitch Prime, Amazon Music and free two-day shipping on over 100 million products. Amazon recently increased the membership price from $99 per year to $119, or $12.99 for a monthly membership. Amazon offers a discounted membership rate to college students, and students also get a longer trial period – 6 months instead of 30 days.

Prominent retailers like Walmart and Best Buy also participate in this summertime Black Friday event, so keep this page bookmarked because we will be scouring the web for the best home and electronics deals.
