Today, we'll share these discounts and more happening during Prime Day. In addition to Prime Day, many retailers are introducing their own opposing mega sales, so there will also be even more opportunities for discounts at Target, Best Buy, and more.

Many of the Prime Day deals we'll be sharing below are time sensitive, so if you're interested be sure to browse and purchase quickly. As usual, you'll also need an Amazon Prime membership to gain access to the sales.

AirPods With Wired Charging Case

A notable new low price has hit the AirPods with Wired Charging Case. You can get it for $114.99, down from $159.00. This is an Amazon all-time-low price on this model of the AirPods.

Inventory clearing day. As always folks, be careful that it wasn't cheeper before today as a lot of prime deals are a wee bit sketchy. And like all sales, this is a clear out of old stock.
