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 sale, which 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.
As in-flight entertainment screens go extinct, it's becoming more important to BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) when traveling. While purchasing iPads for everyone in your family could be costly, there are some great alternatives, such as Amazon's Fire tablets and Kindles, which are reasonably priced. And with today's discounts, you can score one for as little as $30 — or $10 if you were targeted by Amex for this offer.
