Amazon Prime Day is here. The mega-site's annual shopping extravaganza is today, Tuesday, July 12, and Wednesday, July 13 (ending at 12pm PT). As it happens, most other major retailers and brands — we're talking Walmart, Best Buy, Nintendo, Target, Nordstrom and more — have launched adjacent sales that are on par with the savings you'd see on Black Friday. Deals are especially good this year as retailers offload overstock ordered earlier in the pandemic when consumer spending was high — a trend that's cooled this year as inflation has risen. The result? Unprecedented deals to clear out excess inventory. That's good news for shoppers — scroll and you'll see why.

Our favorite Prime Day 2022 deals right now:

Thanks to 4K Ultra HD, you'll get four times the number of pixels of Full HD screen, so colors absolutely pop. Link the TV up to other smart-home devices and enjoy easy access to tons of apps, from Amazon Prime and to Netflix.

Amazon device deals: The best prices all year

As savvy shoppers know, Amazon's own line of tech devices are always among Prime Day's brightest stars. “Generally the best deals will be on Amazon-owned devices, with Echo Dots and Fire tablets being hugely discounted on Prime Day,” says Kristin McGrath, savings expert for RetailMeNot.“You can look for 55% off select Amazon devices, up to 50% off Fire TVs and more during Prime Day sales. Ring doorbells are usually discounted heavily for Prime with savings of up to 35%. The Echo Dot is at its lowest price ever, at $20 (for the 4th generation version).”

This model is a Fire TV Edition, giving you access to 4K movies and TV shows from Netflix, Hulu, HBO Max, YouTube, Disney+, Prime Video, SlingTV, Paramount+, Peacock and more without a separate streaming box or stick. It's also Alexa-enabled.
