With Amazon Prime Day just around the corner, starting July 16 at 3 p.m. ET and running for 36 hours, questions beg: What do I buy? What do I avoid? Do I even play into the hype of what some consider an overblown garage sale?

As in Prime Days past, Amazon Prime Day 2018 will feature deep discounts on a few cool products -- and deep discounts on lots of mediocre merchandise you probably wouldn’t otherwise consider. Expect a mix of hours-long deals and “lightning” deals. The latter pop up quickly and then disappear, either sold out or taken down for lack of interest.


You must be an Amazon Prime member, of course, to shop on Prime Day. We’ve already told you about the benefits of Amazon Prime throughout the year. But if you’re considering forking over $119 to join just to shop Prime Day, read this first. Here are some of the best deals for Amazon Prime Day 2018.
