Here are the best Amazon Prime Day 2019 deals so far
iCrowd Newswire - Jul 15, 2019
If you’re reading this, then Amazon Prime Day 2019 is underway. Prices have fallen for countless products, including tech, and you’ll be able to shop the deals for 48 hours, until 2:59AM ET / 11:59PM PT on Tuesday, July 16th.
First things first: to get in on the deals, you need to be an Amazon Prime subscriber. You can get started with a free 30-day trial to the service, then either let it auto-renew, or cancel it once the trial comes to an end.
Following the cadence set in years past, Amazon will be rolling out new Spotlight deals and Lightning deals throughout Prime Day(s). So, while some of the savings will last throughout the two-day period, others will come and go in a matter of hours — or less.
Below, you’ll find nothing but the best deals on Android phones, 4K televisions, tablets, smart displays, gaming tech, PC components, speakers, headphones, and much more. We’ll be monitoring sales, updating this page with new additions, and striking out inactive ones along the way.
Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K streaming device is $24.99 (usually $49.99). Plugging this into your TV is an affordable way to get access to 4K content on Prime Video and Netflix. This is the cheapest price yet, and the best time to buy, since Google recently (finally) brought its YouTube app to Fire TV.
Amazon Fire TV Cube streaming device is $69.99 (usually $119.99)
Sony 65-inch 4K HDR TV (model XBR65X850F) is $849 (usually $1,095)
Toshiba 43-inch 4K HDR LED TV with Fire TV built-in is $189.99 (usually $329.99)
Insignia 50-inch 4K HDR LED TV with Fire TV built-in is $249.99 (usually $349.99)
Polk Audio Command sound bar with Alexa voice support is $199.99 (usually $299.99)
Caavo Universal Remote and Smart Home Hub with lifetime coverage is $123 (usually $154, clip the 20 percent off coupon on the product page). If your entertainment center is a nightmare to navigate, Caavo can make it easier. You can ask it to find things with your voice, then it will automatically find the right HDMI input that can display it on your TV. This model has lifetime coverage, so no monthly fees, addressing one of the biggest downsides presented in Nilay Patel’s review.
Beats Solo 3 Wireless on-ear headphones are $139.99 (usually $199.99)
Bose SoundLink over-ear wireless headphones are $159 (usually $229)
Bose SoundSport wireless headphones are $139 (usually $199.99)
Jabra Elite 65t truly wireless headphones are $119.99 (usually $169.89). These are our runner-up truly wireless headphone pick, falling short against the AirPods. However, if you have an Android phone, these are the best option, and they’ll also suit iPhone users who can’t find a good fit with AirPods.
Jabra Move on-ear wireless headphones are $69.99 (usually $99.99)
Status Audio CB-1 wired over-ear headphones are $44 (usually $69)
Samsung Galaxy S10 (128GB storage, all configurations are $300 off) is $599.99 (usually $899.99). This may be the best deal that Prime Day 2019 brings along. $300 off of Samsung’s 2019 flagship Android phone is a steal. It’s $50 more than the S10E, though it’s a far better deal since it has a bigger AMOLED display, more RAM, and more cameras. It’s compatible with all carriers in the US, too.
Samsung Galaxy S10E (128GB storage) is $549.99 (usually $749.99)
Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus (128GB storage, all configurations are $300 off) is $699.99 (usually $999.99)
Samsung Galaxy Note 9 (128GB storage) is $649.99 (usually $999.99)
Samsung Galaxy S9 (64GB storage) is $349.99 (usually $649.99)
Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus (64GB storage) is $449.99 (usually $819.99)
Google Pixel 3 (64GB, all configurations are $260 off) is $539 (usually $799)
Google Pixel 3 XL (64GB, all configurations are $260 off) is $639 (usually $899)
Google Pixel 3A XL is $479.99, its usual price, but comes with a $100 Amazon gift card with purchase. Google’s Pixel 3A is a great value, since it uses the same great camera from the Pixel 3 for a fraction of the price. If you aren’t waiting on the Google Pixel 4 to release later this year, and aren’t in need of a phone with a serious amount of power, the 3A XL should suit you well.
LG G8 ThinQ is $499.99 (usually $849.99)
Moto G7 is $199.99 (usually $299.99)
Razer Phone 2 is $399.99 (usually $649.99)
Nokia 7.1 is $299 (usually $349). This phone runs the latest Android 9 Pie software (and is ensured timely software and security updates until late 2020, as part of Google’s Android One initiative). They work only on GSM carriers (AT&T, T-Mobile, Cricket, Metro by T-Mobile), and if you’re on one of those carriers, this is a good value, so long as you aren’t expecting flagship-like speeds and stellar camera performance.
iPad (latest generation, Wi-Fi, 128GB storage) is $299 (usually $329). Apple’s sixth generation iPad is an excellent tablet if you’re looking for an iPad that won’t cost you north of $500. Dieter Bohn called this the “best tablet under $500” in 2018, and while it’s now up against more competition since the new iPad Air and iPad mini released, this is still a fantastic value. This is also the lowest price we’ve seen for the 128GB model by $30.
iPad Pro 10.5 (previous generation, Wi-Fi & LTE, 256GB storage) is $629 (usually $929)
iPad Pro 10.5 (previous generation, Wi-Fi & LTE, 512GB storage) is $699 (usually $1,129)
Samsung Galaxy Tab A (8-inches, 16GB storage) is $119 (usually $178)
Samsung Galaxy Tab A (10.1-inches, 16GB storage) is $159.99 (usually $279.99)
Amazon Kindle e-reader is $59.99 (usually $89.99)
Amazon Kindle Paperwhite with 32GB storage is $109.99 (usually $159.99). If you’re in the market for a new e-reader, make it this one. Chaim Gartenberg spent time with almost every e-reader on the market, but this one stood out as the best in terms of features with its waterproofing, a very clear, crisp 300ppi display, and backlighting. It also features much more internal storage than the traditional 8GB model, which you can fill with Audible audiobooks.
Amazon Fire 7 tablet will be $29.99 (usually $49.99)
Amazon Fire HD 8 tablet will be $49.99 (usually $79.99)
Amazon Fire HD 10 tablet will be $99.99 (usually $149.99)
Apple Watch Series 3 (GPS, 38mm) is $169 (beats the previous best price by $30)
Apple Watch Series 3 (GPS + LTE, 38mm) is $229 (usually $379). This is the cheapest price for the rarely-discounted LTE-enabled Apple Watch. With this model, compared to the GPS-only model, paying a monthly fee to your carrier will allow you to call or text people without carrying your phone around.
Apple Watch Series 3 (GPS, 42mm) is $199 (usually $309)
Apple Watch Series 4 (GPS, 40mm) is $324 (usually $399)
Apple Watch Series 4 (GPS, 44mm) is $354 (usually $429)
Garmin Vivoactive 3 Music is $178.49 (usually $279.99)
Garmin Fenix 5 is $399.99 (usually $599.99)
Connected home / security
Amazon Echo smart speaker costs $49.99 (beating the lowest price yet by $15)
Amazon Echo Show 5 smart display is $49.99 (usually $89.99). Amazon only just released this smaller take on the Echo Show smart display. Now, it’s half of its usual price. Per Dan Seifert’s review, this model has better sound quality than other similarly sized displays, like Google’s Nest Hub, and now it’s far cheaper, too.
Amazon Echo Show smart display is $159.99 (usually $229.99)
Ring Video Doorbell is $69.99 (usually $99.99)
Ring Video Doorbell Pro with free Echo Dot (third generation) is $169.99 (usually $273.99)
Ring Alarm 14-piece security kit is $199 (usually $329)
A two-pack of Blink XT2 security cameras for outdoor and indoor use is $99.99 (usually $179.99). Blink’s new cameras have better battery life than the predecessor (two year lifespan via two AA batteries) and enhanced motion detection. A single camera usually sells for $99.99, and now you can get two for the same price.
Netgear Orbi mesh Wi-Fi system is $199.99 (usually $289.83)
Accessories / Portable Storage

Samsung T5 1TB USB-C drive is $149.99 (usually $249.99)
SanDisk Ultra 400GB microSD card is $44.99 (usually $66.01). Last year’s Prime Day saw this microSD card at around $139. Now it’s less than $50. What a difference one year can make!

Pokémon: Let’s Go Eevee for Nintendo Switch is $29.99 (usually $59.99). Nintendo’s own games rarely drop in price, and this is the biggest price reduction that we’ve seen for a Pokémon: Let’s Go game.
Nintendo Switch Joy-Con controllers (all colors) are $59.99 (usually $79). This is a good opportunity to snag an extra set of Joy-Con for multiplayer games, to switch up your color style, or in preparation for the Nintendo Switch Lite, which doesn’t come with its own set of swappable Joy-Con.
Nintendo Switch console includes $35 eShop gift card for $299
Laptops / Desktops
Asus ROG Zephyrus S laptop (144Hz 1080p 15.6-inch display, 8th Gen Intel Core i7, GTX 1070, 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD) is $1,249.99 (usually $1,390.85). We generally don’t recommend that you buy a laptop with outdated processors or graphics cards, but this gaming laptop (shown above) is a fantastic value. The inclusion of a 144Hz refresh rate display makes up for slightly older parts, though this machine should be plenty fast for most of today’s popular games.
iBUYPOWER desktop (9th Gen Intel Core i7, RTX 2070, 16GB RAM, 240GB SSD + 1TB HDD) is $1,199 (usually $1,649). It’s tough, but possible, to build a superb gaming PC for $1,000. If you don’t want to deal with piecing things together yourself, this iBUYPOWER desktop is a good value, with the latest generation Intel Core i7, and a moderately powerful RTX 2070 graphics card.
CyberPowerPC desktop (9th Gen Intel Core i9, 16GB RAM, RTX 2070, 1TB SSD) is $1,499.99 (usually $1,849, starts today at 11AM ET)

Its Flow feature, enabled by Logitech’s companion software, allows you to drag and drop files between two different computers, be it a macOS or Windows 10 machines. It’s a more elegant solution than uploading to the cloud, or passing around a USB stick to pass around files.
