Black Friday Prime Day is finally here, and Amazon has a ton of amazing deals in store. But with thousands of products to choose from, and new deals starting as often as every five minutes, it’s easy to get lost and think that you’re actually in the Amazon. To help you on this hunt, we here at TPG are scouring Amazon all day to find the best deals that might be worth a look. And while the discounts are exciting in and of themselves, there are also ways to maximize your return on Amazon spending during this two-day sale, which you can read about at the end of the post.

Although the sale officially runs from today through tomorrow, some deals aren’t available for the full 48 hours and quantities are limited, so if you’re interested in an offer, you’ll need to act quick. As a reminder, these discounts are available exclusively to Amazon Prime members. If you’re not currently an Amazon Prime member, you can sign up today for a free trial to take advantage of the sale. In addition, Prime Student allows college students to receive a free six-month trial membership.

It’s easy to get 5x points (a 5%-10% based on TPG valuations) on gift card purchases year-round with cards like the Chase Ink Business Cash and Chase Freedom. However, you may be able to save even more on your gift card purchases today and tomorrow. Amazon is currently 20% savings on gift cards to retailers like iTunes, Fandango and The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf. There’s even an offer to get a bonus when purchasing Amazon gift cards. We’ve included a sampling of what’s available below, but your best bet is to scroll through the entire list of discounted gift cards here.
