Amazon Prime Day Live Blog: The Best Deals Worth Checking Out

Today kicks off Amazon's annual Prime Day shopping event, offering customers with an Amazon Prime subscription the chance to save money on nearly countless items across the retailer's storefront.

Since we routinely share great deals on Apple products and accessories being sold on Amazon, we've launched a live blog today that will track notable Prime Day discounts from Apple accessory makers like Anker and EasyAcc, as well as other interesting sales as they go live. Prime Day will officially begin this afternoon at 3 p.m. ET and continue for 36 hours afterwards.

Note: MacRumors is an affiliate partner with Amazon. When you click a link and make a purchase, we may receive a small payment, which helps us keep the site running.

Before that time, Amazon has debuted early access Prime Day discounts on its own range of Alexa and Echo devices, with up to 50 percent off of products like the Echo Look, Fire TV Stick, Fire HD 10 tablet, and more, which are expected to last throughout Prime Day.

In contrast to deals that last for a majority of the event, there will also be limited-time lightning deals that appear at different times throughout the day and night, and only last for an hour or so.

In this live blog, we'll be tracking lightning deals, longer-lasting discounts, and competitor sales as products get marked down throughout Prime Day, so be sure to bookmark this page and check back for new bargains as Amazon's mid-year shopping event continues into Wednesday morning.

Prime Day is over for 2018 – check back next year!

Amazon acknowledged that the Prime Day deals aren't their best prices on those items.

But MacRumors wants to be sure to get in on this by posting affiliate links and making money off anything you order.


So? Gotta make money somehow.

What's incredible is people believe these are good deals because Amazon says so. I've never seen anything listed on Amazon Prime Day, Black Friday, or Cyber Monday that was anywhere close to the lowest price per camelcamelcamel

Personally, I'm not buying anything today in solidarity with the European Amazon workers on strike this week. No judgment of anyone who is buying stuff on Prime Day, but thought it was worth letting people know that the strike was happening, in case that aligns with your beliefs. Here's a link to more info: https://www.vox.com/2018/7/16/17577614/amazon-prime-day-strike-boycotts

(And sorry to MR for not supporting the affiliate links today--some other day.)

Looks like Amazon didn’t account for the traffic increase...

On the app it tells you an error occurred, on the web it gets you stuck in a UI loop that doesn’t indicate an error, but still shows no products.

Everything I've seen so far is pretty crappy. Not half as good as last years deals.

Nearly countless... is that anything like very unique?

Yes, MR does disclose their affiliate relationships, and that's all well and good. Yet the disclosures provide the impression that MR is a charity that we can support with these purchases. In reality, this site is a for-profit business.


Annnnnnnnnnd affiliate revenue is a part of how they make their profit. Again, not seeing the point of confusion here.

What a fiasco for Amazon's IT dept.


IT costs too much. Amazon is too busy adding services nobody wants.
