Welcome to the final few hours of Amazon’s latest Prime Day event, Prime Big Deal Days. Though a few of the deals we saw yesterday are no longer available, quite a few remain. And no, not all of them are the leftovers nobody really wanted in the first place.

Once again, our team of reviewers and expert deal hunters has rummaged through thousands of Prime-exclusive deals and pulled together a wealth of discounted gadgets we’ve tested and can personally vouch for. We’ve collected many of them below, though we’ve also curated category-specific guides for earbuds, Apple devices, gaming accessories, smart home devices, and a host of other tech categories.

Although many of the deals are set to expire at midnight tonight, we’ll be continuously updating each roundup and adding new deals as we encounter them. We’ve also included deals from retailers other than Amazon, so you can save whether you’re an Amazon Prime subscriber or not.

Prime Big Deal Days spotlight

Best Prime Day Apple deals

  • You can buy the red 41mm Apple Watch Series 8 with GPS for $299.99 ($100 off) from Amazon. The last-gen watch may not offer Series 9 perks like support for Apple’s double-tap feature, but it’s still an excellent wearable with features the latest Watch SE lacks, like EKG, SpO2, and temperature sensors. Read our review.
  • If you don’t mind opting for Apple’s oldest and most basic wireless earbuds, the second-gen AirPods with the Lightning charging case are back down to their all-time low of $89 ($40 off) at Amazon. They don’t stack up to newer buds in the audio quality department, but they’re extremely reliable and perfectly fine for listening to music and podcasts.

Best Prime Day headphone and earbud deals

  • The Beats Powerbeats Pro wireless workout earbuds are matching their all-time low price of $149.95 ($100 off). They’re a little long in the tooth, but their ear hooks offer one of the most secure fits for rigorous exercises and long runs. Read our review.
  • The last-gen Beats Studio Buds are selling for just $89.95 ($60 off). The newer Studio Buds Plus may offer better sound and a slick see-through model, but the older Buds remain a compact and comfy option on a much tighter budget. Read our review.
  • Google’s Pixel Buds A-Series are matching their all-time low of $59 ($40 off) at Amazon. The pricier Pixel Buds Pro may be getting the software update love from Google, but these entry-level earbuds are still very good for the money and create a tight seal in your ears to block outside sounds in lieu of proper noise cancellation. Read our review.
  • You can pick up the Echo Buds with Active Noise Cancellation with a wired charging case for just $64.99 ($55 off) on Amazon right now. The comfortable second-gen earbuds remain a nice upgrade over the new base model, namely because they boast active noise cancellation and better water resistance. Read our review.
  • Amazon is selling its latest Echo Buds earbuds with a semi-open ear design for $34.99 ($15 off). They may look a little generic, but the affordable buds offer a tight integration with Alexa voice commands.
  • Skullcandy’s Jib True 2, another cheap pair of wireless earbuds we recommend, are on sale at Amazon for $27.99 ($12 off). We’ve seen them go for less — they once dropped to a mere $16.99 — but the current price isn’t bad considering they offer serviceable sound, IPX4 dust and water resistance, and built-in Tile tracking.
  • If you’re looking for a dirt-cheap pair of wireless earbuds, the JLab Go Air Pop are down to $16.44 (about $9 off) on Amazon. The reliable earbuds feature a handsome-enough design, decent sound quality, IPX4 water resistance, and a robust 32 hours of playback with the included charging case, all for less than $20.

Best Prime Day smart speaker and smart display deals

  • Amazon’s Echo Studio, the largest of its smart speaker offerings, is now available for a new low of $154.99 ($45 off) on Amazon. The Alexa-based speaker supports Dolby Atmos and offers some big, spacious sound that can fill a large room. Read our review.
  • The latest Echo Dot Kids is also selling for just $27.99 ($32 off) on Amazon. It’s the same entry-level Dot as above but is decorated with either an adorable dragon or owl design.
  • Amazon’s latest Echo speaker is on sale at Amazon right now for $54.99 ($45 off), nearly matching its all-time low. The Alexa-based smart speaker shares a lot in common with Amazon’s latest Echo Dot — including the ability to serve as a Wi-Fi extender if you’re on an Eero network — but offers better sound. Read our review.
  • The second-gen Echo Show 8, the middle child in Amazon’s Echo display lineup, is down to $59.99 ($70 off) on Amazon. The last-gen display isn’t as fast or as capable as the third-gen model, though you can still use it to check the weather, news, and other info. It also supports video calling via its 13MP camera. Read our review.

Best Prime Day charger-related and battery pack deals

  • If you want a three-in-one wireless charger for a phone, Apple Watch, and pair of wireless earbuds, it doesn’t get much cheaper than the Anker 335 Foldable 3-in-1 Wireless Charging Station for $18.99 (about $12 off). Just be aware you’ll have to provide your own Apple Watch charger that slots into the ring holder.
  • Nomad is selling its new Base One Max 3-in-1 MagSafe Charger for $150 ($20 off) on its site. The wireless pad simultaneously charges a MagSafe iPhone, a pair of AirPods, and an Apple Watch — just be sure to get a 30W or higher USB-C power adapter to plug it into.
  • Anker’s 747 Charger is selling for $71.91 (about $38 off) at Amazon when you clip the on-page coupon for 10 percent off. The beefy 150W charger has enough output to charge a 16-inch MacBook Pro and similarly sized laptops; it also offers three USB-C ports and one USB-A port.
  • The smaller Anker 715 Charger has fallen to a new low of $29.91 (about $40 off) on Amazon with an on-page coupon. The tiny 65W charger offers just a single USB-C port but can still manage to charge even a 13-inch MacBook Air.
  • The awkwardly named and even more awkwardly pictured Ainope 10,000mAh USB-C power bank is on sale for $28.69 ($21 off) at Amazon. The compact charger has two USB-A ports and one USB-C port that also doubles as the power bank’s charging slot.

Best Prime Day TV, soundbar, and streaming device deals

  • You can currently get Roku’s Streaming Stick 4K for $37 ($12 $13 off) at Amazon. It’s one of the simplest streaming devices to use, one that includes solid specs like Dolby Vision HDR and support for Dolby Atmos. Read our review.
  • Amazon is throwing in a $10 gift card when you buy the Google Chromecast with Google TV (4K) at its full price of $49.95.

  • Lenovo’s Legion 5i Pro, usually $1,599.99, is down to an attractive $1,249.99 ($350 off). The 5i is consistently one of our favorite gaming laptops, bringing stellar build quality and great performance at a price that’s very affordable (as gaming laptops go). Read our review.
  • Elgato’s Ring Light is selling for a new low price of $125.99 ($74 off) at Amazon. The large, 2500-lumen LED creates a soft and pleasing light on you for Zoom calls and streaming. It comes with a desk mount, allowing you to mount a camera within the center of the light.
  • If you want PC speakers with a bass-y subwoofer and colorful RGB lighting, the SteelSeries Arena 7 are on sale at Amazon for $239.99 ($60 off).

  • Anker’s 565 USB-C Hub is on sale for a new low of $54.99 ($50 off) at Amazon.

  • If you prefer to pick up a Ring Video Doorbell for as cheap as possible, the wired version is on sale for $34.99 ($30 off) at Amazon.

  • The Amazfit Band 7 is on sale in select colors for $39.99 ($10 off) at Amazon. That’s not quite as good as its all-time low of $37.99, but it’s still a terrific price for a super affordable fitness tracker that can track your heart rate and other basic metrics. Read our review.

  • The Polar Pacer is 22 percent off on Amazon, dropping it to $179.99. Polar is not as well known as Garmin, but they’ve got a reputation for making multisport watches that lean heavily on training features, GPS accuracy, and battery life rather than productivity. This is a good price for a Garmin running watch alternative that gets you a similar experience.

Best Prime Day gaming deals

  • Hallmark’s Nintendo Entertainment System Console Ornament is on sale for $16.16 (about $4 off) at Amazon. The tiny NES replica has a little copy of the Super Mario Bros. in it, and when you press its power button, it lights up and plays the classic Mario theme with sound effects.
  • The PDP Victrix BFG Wireless Controller for PlayStation 5, PS4, and PC in its Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II-branded black and gold design is on sale at Amazon for $169.99 ($30 off).

  • The Nintendo Switch version of Octopath Traveler II, a tactical RPG that pulls heavily from classic Final Fantasy titles, is on sale at Amazon for $42.25 ($17 off). You don’t have to have played the prior game to enjoy the game’s storyline or attractive “HD-2D” sprites, either, as it’s just as welcoming to newcomers as returning players.
  • Mario Golf: Super Rush on the Switch is selling for $39.99 ($20 off) in either physical cartridge or digital form at Amazon.

Best Prime Day Verge favorites and miscellaneous deals

  • If you’re as big a K-pop stan as some of our staff, you need to check out this Lego Ideas BTS Dynamite kit selling for $68.99 ($31 off) at Amazon. It depicts the seven band members in the setting of their “Dynamite” music video. (And for some reason, it’s meant for ages 18 and up? Why does that seem a little… odd?)
  • The Xpower A-2S Electric Duster is on sale for $43.20 ($11 off) at Amazon when you click the on-page coupon. These types of dusters are beloved by some of our staff for how much they help clean up dusty electronics and the tucked-away areas around them.

  • The PetCube Bites 2 Lite, a notable alternative to Furbo’s aforementioned offering, is on sale at Amazon for $74.10 ($55 off). It’s got a lot of the same features — including a 1080p camera, two-way audio, and a built-in treat dispenser — but it offers a wider field of view and better digital zoom. The tradeoff, however, is that it doesn’t swivel.
  • The 32-page Rocketbook Core is down to $20.39 (about $14 off) on Amazon, a new all-time low. In a way, the reusable smart notebook offers the best of both worlds, allowing you to jot down notes and quickly store them in popular cloud services like Google Drive.
  • Coway’s Airmega 200M is down to $139.99 ($90 off) at Amazon, nearly the best price we’ve seen on the slim, relatively compact HEPA air purifier.
  • Happy Salmon is selling for just $8.63 ($4 off) at Amazon. The kid-friendly party card game by the Exploding Kittens creators is something you can play to completion in just a few minutes. It’s a great ice breaker for adults and children alike, getting everyone out of their seats and quickly causing a raucous. Just try not to make those salmon so happy you end up with bruised forearms (you’ll see what I mean).
  • The new AeroPress Clear is on sale at Amazon for $39.95 ($10 off), its best price to date. The Clear model is the same AeroPress we know and love here at The Verge, only it uses a clear type of plastic called Tritan that allows you to easily see the brewing process.
  • If you’re planning on traveling this fall or winter, Epicka’s Universal Travel Adapter One is on sale at Amazon for $18.39 (about $7 off).

  • Air fryers may function as glorified convection ovens for your countertop, but they can be very handy. Cosori’s 1800W Air Fryer Oven Combo is on sale for $139.99 ($20 off) with a variety of accessories that allow for small-batch baking, roasting, and toasting. That’s in addition to the usual basket of french fries or nugs, of course.
