After being delayed several months due to COVID-19, Amazon Prime Day 2020 is still happening, and it’s live right now on Amazon’s website with thousands of deals available, with more to come over the next 48 hours. As usual, you’ll need a Prime membership to shop the sale, and a 30-day free trial is available.
Despite happening later than usual this year due to the coronavirus pandemic, Prime Day is bringing steep discounts on some of the best games for Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Prime Day is also an excellent opportunity to snag consoles and PC hardware at a discount, and you’ll also find sweet deals on gaming accessories, merch, Blu-rays, collectibles, and practically anything on your wish list. If you’re looking to shop in the Prime Day sale, we’ve got you covered. Below, we’ve rounded up the very best deals so far and everything else you need to know.
Keep in mind you’ll need to be logged in to see Prime Day prices. On a listing, look for the blue Prime Day Deal label–your price at checkout will be indicated to the right of it.

Best tips for Amazon Prime Day
To get the most out of Prime Day, it’s best to know exactly what you’re shopping for. Otherwise, it’s easy to get sucked down the rabbit hole of Amazon’s endless lineup of deals. While Black Friday offers you a lot of time to plan for the exact deals you want to take advantage of, Prime Day deals are generally kept secret until the event kicks off, so you’ll want to be ready at your computer that day to snag anything you want. The best deals are sure to sell out quickly.
There are different types of Prime Day deals to be aware of, and understanding what these are can help your planning. Prime Day really kicks off about a week beforehand with early access or countdown deals. Throughout the event, you’ll also see spotlight deals–these run for 24 hours and can take place during the lead-up to Prime Day as well as the event itself. Lightning deals tend to be some of the best discounts of Prime Day, but these are limited-time, limited-stock items that will sell out fast. The best way to keep up with those is through the Amazon app on your phone as well as the upcoming deals page on Amazon. Hit “watch this deal” to get notified when it starts. Finally, there will be thousands of Prime Day-exclusive deals that run the entire duration of Prime Day, which will likely be 48 hours this year. These offers are still likely to sell out if they feature popular items, like the Nintendo Switch.
