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 one-day salewhich you can read about at the end of the post.

As a reminder, these discounts are available exclusively to Amazon Prime members beginning at 3:00pm ET. 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.

On top of all of the discounts on items, such as 58% off Bose headphones and 40% off Fire Tablets, Amazon Prime members can get $5 in promo credits for spending at least $25 on Amazon gift cards. All you need to do is add the gift cards to your card and apply promo code GCPRIME18 at checkout. The credit will be applied to your account within two days after the purchase is completed, or, in the case of physical gift cards, shipped and will be valid until September 2, 2018. More information about the promotion can be found here.

Don’t forget, you can maximize your rewards on Amazon purchases by using a credit card such as the Amazon Prime Rewards Visa Signature, Chase Freedom Unlimited and Citi Double Cash Card.
