Amazon is holding its second-annual Prime Day on July 12th. It’s a made up holiday when the company will offer deep discounts on a number of products. Amazon is promising more deals than you get on Black Friday… although some deals will probably be a lot better than others.
In the week leading up to Prime Day, the company has been running a series of other promotions, and today’s deals are particularly noteworthy, with a great price on a high-capacity external battery, a super-cheap Amazon Tap, and $10 off any order over $20 placed through the Alexa voice service between now and July 12th.
Note that you need to be an Amazon Prime member to get any of those deals… but you can sign up for a 30-day free trial membership and cancel it if you don’t want to pay $99 per year for the free shipping/music/video/eBook service.
Here are some of the day’s best deals.
