Itâ€™s summertime again, and that means that along with beach vacations and pina coladas, itâ€™s also the season for Amazon Prime Day, and your opportunity to grab some great deals.
This year, Amazonâ€™s making Prime Day a two-day event â€”Â a full 48 hours compared to last yearâ€™s 36 â€” so thereâ€™s even more time to shop. However, as with Prime Day in prior years, the deals will come and go â€” some are only posted while quantities last, while others are limited for different reasons, although fortunately Amazon will be continually posting more new deals through the day, so itâ€™s not a static event and youâ€™ll want to keep checking back.
This year Amazon is promising over a million deals on a wide range of products, but of course as the name implies youâ€™ll need to be an Amazon Prime member to take advantage of the deals; fortunately, Amazon is still letting you sign up for a free 30-day trial membership â€” as long as youâ€™ve never been a Prime member before â€” in the hopes that youâ€™ll like it enough to keep it. If youâ€™ve previously had a Prime membership, you likely wonâ€™t get the free trial, but you can still just sign up for a single month for $12.99 and cancel later if youâ€™re simply looking to take advantage of the deals.
In terms of actual Apple hardware, Amazon is offering some pretty great discounts of up to 40 percent on select Apple Watches.
This means you can score an Apple Watch Series 3 GPS 42mm for only $199 â€”Â thatâ€™s $110 off its regular price â€”Â and the Series 3 GPS + Cellular version is only $30 more, at $229, which is a full 40% off.
If the Apple Watch Series 4 is more your style, thatâ€™s on sale too, but only the GPS version, at least for now, with 17% off the aluminum AppleÂ Watch SeriesÂ 4 (GPS, 44mm), which is selling now for $354.
Itâ€™s worth keeping an eye on Appleâ€™s 11-inch iPad Pro, as weâ€™ve heard reports of up to $125 off on the 64 GB version, although this is one of those deals that may come and go over the course of the Prime Day event.
On the other hand, Appleâ€™s 10.5-inch iPad Pros are also going for 30â€“38 percent off, depending on capacity and cooler:
- Apple iPad Pro (10.5-inch, Wi-Fi + Cellular, 256GB) â€“ Silver â€”Â $629
- Apple iPad Pro (10.5-inch, Wi-Fi + Cellular, 256GB) â€“ Gold â€” $649
- Apple iPad Pro (10.5-inch, Wi-Fi + Cellular, 256GB) â€“ Rose Gold â€” $649
- Apple iPad Pro (10.5-inch, Wi-Fi + Cellular, 512GB) â€“ Rose Gold â€” $699
Amazon is also offering $80 off on Appleâ€™s entry-level iPad, with the 32GB model selling for $249.
Appleâ€™s Headphones: AirPods and Beats
You can pick up Appleâ€™s AirPods with Wireless Charging Case for only $179 today, or get the version with the standard charging case for $145.
Appleâ€™s Beats Solo3 Wireless On-Ear Headphones are also on sale for $139.99 â€”Â an additional $55 off the already low price that Amazon usually sells them for, while the Beats EP wired on-ear headphone can be had for $65, if youâ€™re willing to go with the white version; prices for the other colors range from $70â€“$80.
- 15-inch, 2.6GHz 6-core 9th-generation IntelÂ CoreÂ i7 processor, 256GB (Latest Model) â€“ $209 Off
- 15-inch, 2.3GHz 8-core 9th-generation IntelÂ CoreÂ i9 processor, 512GB (Latest Model) â€“ $240 Off
