The best of Amazon Prime Day 2016

Posted July 12th, 2016 at 6:00 am


Last year Amazon hyped the first ever “Prime Day” as a huge event that would feature the most deals ever. While that may have been true in terms of how many items were discounted, the vast majority were unappealing, and it was deemed as a huge disappointment. Today is the second Prime Day and so far it’s offering a much better slate of deals.

For those who don’t have Amazon Prime, you can sign up for a free trial (Try Amazon Prime 30-Day Free Trial) in order to qualify for all the deals plus all the many other benefits that come with membership.

Many of the deals are limited in quantity and could sell out quickly. This post will be updated as new deals are added throughout the day or others expire. Buying through Amazon links helps support the website and directly funds future game giveaways! [Update] Prime Day is now over. Hope everyone was able to take advantage of any deals of interest!
