Amazon Prime Day: The 16 Absolute Best Deals

We think these top sixteen items are the best can’t miss deals of Prime Day. Topping the list is Amazon free credit, because nothing beats free money. But there are also crazy good prices on new 2021 LG C1 series OLED TVs, top-of-the-line Sony and Bose noise cancelling headphones, the latest Apple AirPods, a portable SSD that’s finally affordable, both LotR and The Hobbit in glorious 4K, and more.

The Best Amazon Prime Day Switch, PS4/PS5, Xbox Video Game Deals

Unfortunately there haven’t been too many deals on video game hardware and accessories. The few that we do have, however, are pretty good, like the Nintendo Switch Lite with free memory card, 40% off Xbox Game Pass, and the Razer gaming chair and NVIDIA Shield media streamer at the lowest prices ever. The video game deals, however, are pretty great. Many of the deals are better than what we saw during the Nintendo eShop Digital Sale or the Sony Days of Play Event.

The Best Amazon Prime Day Gaming Laptop Deal Is Back

The most popular Amazon Prime Day gaming laptop deal is available again. It’s no surprise that this computer sells so well, considering it’s hard to find any Razer laptop for under $1000. It’s one of the thinnest gaming laptops on the market, and it only weighs 4.5 pounds, It’s also a capable gaming rig thanks to its Intel Core i7 processor and GTX 1660 Ti graphics.

Better Than Amazon Prime Day: The Best VR Headset Deal

Surprisingly, the best VR headset deal comes not from Amazon, but from Walmart. The Reverb G2 normally sells for $599, but right now there’s a huge $200 discount bringing it down to $399. That’s only $100 more than the Quest 2 for some huge upgrades. The Reverb G2 boasts the second highest resolution of any VR headset with 2160×2160 pixels per eye, manual IPD adjustment, a far more robust headstrap, inside-out tracking so you don’t need external sensors, and off-ear headphones.

Better Than Prime Day: The Best Gaming Monitor Deal Is Back

Once again, there’s a best Amazon Prime Day deal that isn’t from Amazon. This Alienware AW3420DW gaming monitor retails for $1500 at Dell and it’s $1000 on Amazon, but Dell dropped the price to an insane $615.99. Dell makes very good gaming monitors, and its AW3420DW is one of the best 34″ gaming monitors out there. It boasts a 3440×1440 21:9 resolution, G-SYNC, 2ms response time, 120Hz refresh rate, and an IPS panel that boasts a 98% DCI-P3 color gamut and super wide viewing angles.

The Best Amazon Prime Day Micro SDXC Memory Card Deals

If you’ve needed more storage for your Nintendo Switch, smartphone, or camera, then Amazon Prime Day is the perfect time to score a memory card at a ridiculous price. No other time of year (except maybe Black Friday) will you find a 400GB Micro SDXC card for only $37.99.

The Best Amazon Prime Day 4K TVs and Fire TV Deals

If you thought that getting the newest generation OLED TV was out of your budget, think again. The LG C1 series OLED TV, which pretty much everyone justifiably considers to be one of the best TVs ever, has dropped to a new price low. The 55″ model is $300 off and the 65″ model is $400 off. For some people size matters, and if you’re one of those people, you might want to look at the massive 82″ Samsung TV for only $1199.99. It even includes $100 Amazon credit.

Amazon Prime Day Apple Watch, AirPods, iPad, MacBook Deals

Amazon Prime Day is no good without some great Apple deals, and this year Amazon delivers. You can score a pair of Apple AirPods Pro for $189, or if you don’t need the noise cancelling, pick up the AirPods for nearly half the price. Apple Watches, iPads, Macbooks, there are discounts for all of them. Unsurprisingly, the best Apple deals go in and out of stock very quickly, so if an item you’re looking for is out of stock, check back later and Amazon may have sneakily refreshed its inventory.

The Best Amazon Prime Day Wireless Headphone Deals

We think that the formidable Sony WH1000XM4 headphones will be the best seller on Amazon Prime Day. The audio quality and noise cancellation are the best we’ve experienced, and the price has never been lower. However, personally, we think the Bose 700 is a better deal. It carries a higher MSRP and yet it’s $20 cheaper, it’s harder to find on sale, it’s performance is on par, and it’s prettier.

The Best Amazon Prime Day Echo Dot and Fire TV Deals

Log into your Amazon Prime account to get these prices

These Echo and Fire devices deals are a staple of every Amazon Prime Day so far. This year, however, Amazon spices things up a little. The fact that the Fire TV Stick is 50% off isn’t very surprising (it’s the same price every Prime Day), but Amazon throws us an extra bone by giving us three free months of Disney+, Hulu, and ESPN+. Now you can save money AND catch up on Loki, Wandavision, Raya and the Last Dragon, Boss Level, Shadow in the Cloud, and more.

The Best Amazon Office and Gaming Chair Deals

Whether you prefer the sleek styling of a racing-style gaming chair or the minimalist aesthetics of office chairs, you won’t go wrong choosing either. Both chairs, built properly, can provide hours of ergonomic comfort while you work or game. The Steelcase Gesture is almost never discounted except during SteelCase’s annual 15% off sale. This Amazon Prime Day deal takes off even more – 20% off – plus an additional 6% cashback if you use your Amazon Prime Visa Card.

The Best Amazon Prime Day 4K Blu-ray Movie Deals

The movie deal quality this year is particularly impressive: both The Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit Extended Edition 4K Trilogies for $59.99 each, every Harry Potter movie in 4K for $72.99, The Dark Knight Trilogy in 4K for $34.99, The Back to the Future Trilogy for $29.99. These prices are insane and any movie collector would be even more insane not to take advantage of this.

The Best Amazon Prime Day Gaming Monitor Deals

If you’re a PC gamer and you’ve got the money, do yourself a huge favor and pick up a real gaming monitor. I survived on non-gaming monitors for decades and figured that all those gaming features were gimmicks I didn’t need. Ignorance is bliss because after I found out what I was missing, I spent too much money on a nice gaming monitor. You can jump onto the bandwagon too (and end up a few hundred dollars richer than me) by picking up one of these excellent monitors on sale.

The Best Amazon Prime Day Portable SSD Deals

The price of portable SSDs have dropped significantly in the past few months. Even during last year’s Black Friday, we wouldn’t have recommend splurging for a portable SSD because the value wasn’t there. This time around, however, SSDs have finally reached a price point that *almost* competes with hard drives. For example, you can pick up a 1TB portable SSD drive with USB Type-C interface for about $70. If you consider all the advantages they offer, the scales might finally have tipped in favor of SSDs.

Better Than Amazon Prime Day: The Best RTX 3080 Gaming PC Deal

No this is not a deal from Amazon, but we had to add it in here because for many people, this the deal that we’ve been waiting for. Dell has the absolute best “Amazon Prime Day” RTX 3080 PC deal in the guise of this 2021 Alienware Aurora R12 gaming PC equipped with an RTX 3080 video card for only $2199.99. You will not find any other PC, no matter the brand, equipped with an RTX 3080 at this price.

The Best Amazon Prime Day Intel EVO Laptop Deals

There are very few Intel Evo certified laptops available. To receive the Intel Evo certification, a laptop has to pass a series of strict qualifications that emphasize portability and battery life. The laptop must be equipped with an Intel Tiger Lake CPU with Xe graphics and have at least 8GB RAM and 256GB SSD. It must be housed in an ultra-thin chassis and feature a backlit keyboard, precision touchpad, and pen support. The battery must be able to run for at least 16 hours of video playback or 9 hours of “strong” performance. It must also be able to charge 4 hours of battery life in 30 minutes. You must be able to wake the computer from sleep mode in less than 1 second. It must have a USB Type-C charging port, Thunderbolt 4, WiFi 6, and a fanless or near fanless design. All of this produces a laptop that is the road warrior’s ultimate dream. All the laptops listed below are Intel EVO certified.

The Best Amazon Prime Day WiFi 6 Router Deals

Most people could probably do without a WiFi 6 router, but prices have come down far enough that WiFi 6 routers now compete with WiFi 5 routers. WiFi 6 introduces technology that offers faster and more stable bandwidth when multiple devices are connected to the same network. It also has a higher theoretical bandwidth, which can come into play if you have multiple computers transferring data over your network simultaneously. During Prime Day you could pick up a WiFI 6 router for as low as $69.99.

The Best Amazon Prime Day Wireless Gaming Headset Deals

Wireless headsets are the way to go; you do away with the clunky wires that get in the way, and nowadays the latency is next to nothing. There are a few headsets discounted on Prime Day. They’re mostly higher end headsets that range in price from $70 all the way to $140. They all have excellent reviews so you won’t go wrong with any of them.

The Best Amazon Prime Day Toys, LEGO, and Board Game Deals

They are plenty of board games for sale, but unfortunately they go in and out of stock very quickly. The best deal in our opinion is Gloomhaven: Jaws of the Lion for only $29.99, the lowest price we’ve ever seen for this board game. It’s highly rated over at BGG, it’s very well priced even at MSRP, and it’s much easier to get into than the original Gloomhaven game.

The Best Amazon Prime Day Subscription Deals

These subscription deals are actually some of the best Amazon Prime Days you’ll find. Amazon is offering 2 month subscriptions to several of its most popular streaming services for only $0.99. That includes Paramount+, AMC+, and STARZ. Subscriptions are sneaky; they seem inexpensive but over time the cumulative cost might end up being one of your most expensive purchases.
