Amazon Prime Day is upon us. All the waiting, the speculating, the saving, has come down to this one moment.
Prime Day is Amazon’s greatest invention; a completely random mega sale not tied to any major holiday period like Black Friday sales are to Christmas. Saying that, no one here in Australia is complaining because it happens to coincide with the end of the financial year and ideally, just in time for our tax back bonuses.
Amazon’s made-up holiday dedicated to “epic deals” and working its warehouse workers to the bone is fast approaching, and so, apparently, are pretty convincing phishing scams disguised as emails from the tech giant.Read more
With hundreds of sales to sift through before the deals close after Tuesday (US deals will be available through Wednesday), it’s always nice if someone can give the TL;DR of it so with that in mind, here are the best tech sales we’ve found offered on Amazon’s Prime Day.
- Acer Chromebook 11: $242.99
- Acer 13.3″ Chromebook R13: $449.99
- ASUS E406: $370.51
- ASUS VivoBook Flip TP412: $897
Some smart phones are also being slashed in Prime Day deals with the most notable being the Samsung S10e is going for $728, nearly $200 off it’s normal retailing price on Amazon.
Amazon Prime Day has officially kicked off, and we've already spied a pretty great deal if you're in the market for a new flagship phone. The Samsung Galaxy S10e is arguably the best bang for buck handset in the S10 range, and you can now get it for $238 cheaper.Read more
