Amazon Prime Day 2024: The best deals you can get for 2024

Snag Prime Day tech deals that take up to 50 percent off our favorite gadgets.

Engadget

Amazon Prime Day 2024 is here, so Prime members can finally take advantage of the long-awaited discounts across Amazon’s site. The online retailer has hosted its main, annual shopping event in July (almost) without fail for a decade, and it typically brings some of the best prices of the year to clothing, household goods, and yes, even consumer electronics.

This year is no different — a number of our top picks for the best tech you can buy right now have been discounted for Prime Day. Most Prime Day deals are exclusively available to Prime members, but there are always a few stragglers that anyone with an Amazon account can get. We’ve gathered the best Prime Day deals on tech that we could find here. We’ll be updating this post regularly throughout the duration of Prime Day, so check back to see the latest discounts.

If you're looking for even more Prime Day deals, check out Engadget's Prime Day hub where you'll find all of the best tech deals you can get for the shopping event this year. In addition to Amazon devices, Prime Day is typically a great time to pick up big-ticket items like tablets, laptops and robot vacuums, and accessories like power banks, streaming devices, Bluetooth speakers and the like.

Apple’s AirPods Pro have dropped to $169 for Prime Day. They have excellent ANC, good sound quality with spatial audio support and hands-free Siri access. The latest model has a wireless charging case with a USB-C port and MagSafe compatibility.

The Pros are the best pair of wireless earbuds that Apple sells and one of our top picks overall. They'll be hard to beat if you live in the Apple ecosystem and appreciate the conveniences provided by the buit-in H1 chip.

$169 at Amazon

A four-pack of AirTags is on sale for $75 right now. They can access Apple's vast Find My network to make it easier to see where your items are, and newer iPhones with ultra wideband connectivity can use on-screen directions to locate lost stuff that’s still nearby.

If you have an iPhone, these are the Bluetooth trackers to get. Just remember that you'll have to pick up an AirTags case or holder if you want to attach them to your keys.

$75 at Amazon

The 10th-gen iPad has dropped to $299 for Prime Day. It’s the best iPad for those on a budget thanks to its modern design, USB-C charging, solid battery life and solid performance for the price. It’s even compatible with an optional folio keyboard if you want to turn it into a productivity machine.

While we recommend the latest iPad Air for most people it's hard to beat the value of the 10th-gen model, especially when you can snag it on sale like this.

$299 at Amazon

The Apple Watch Series 9 has been discounted to $280 for Prime Day. The Series 9 adds an upgraded SiP, on-device Siri processing and a handy Double Tap gesture feature that makes it easier to interact with the Watch’s UI even when you can’t tap its touchscreen.

We consider the Series 9 to be the best smartwatch available today, period, and it's a no-brainer accessory for iPhone owners. If you want to spend less and get most of the code features found here, you should consider the more affordable Apple Watch SE.

$280 at Amazon

Amazon’s smallest smart speaker, the Echo Dot, has dropped to $25 for Prime Day. It’s one of the best smart speakers you can get right now thanks to its compact design, physical button controls that compliment voice commands and its solid sound quality for its size.

The Kids version is also on sale for $28 for this sale.

$25 at Amazon

The Echo Show 8 has dropped to $85 for Prime Day. This is our current top pick for the best smart display with Amazon’s Alexa thanks in part to its 8-inch touchscreen, 13MP camera that supports auto-framing for better video chats and its built-in Zigbee smart home hub.

The 2023 model supports Visual ID, which will show personalized information on the device’s display depending on who’s using it, and video streaming from Netflix, Hulu, Prime Video and other services.

$85 at Amazon

The base Kindle is on sale for $85 for Prime Day. It’s our top pick for the best budget ereader out there, and it’s an even better value when you can snag it on discount. In addition to giving you access to Amazon’s vast Kindle ebook library, the entry-level Kindle has a good number of page customization options (for text size, font, margins, etc) and Audible integration, which lets you listen to Audible audiobooks if you have a pair of Bluetooth headphones.

$85 at Amazon

The Sony WH-1000XM5 headphones are on sale for $298 right now. They excel thanks to their excellent sound quality and ANC, improved design, 30-hour battery life and handy extra features like multi-device connectivity and Speak to Chat.

These are our top pick for the best headphones on the market today — it doesn't get much better than the XM5. If you're on a tight budget and still want the core features in these cans, consider the previous version, the Sony WH-1000XM4.

$298 at Amazon

The Sony WF-1000XM5 earbuds have been discounted to $228 for Prime Day. The XM5 earbuds stand out thanks to their improved design, good sound quality, impressive ANC and special features like adaptive sound and Speak to Chat.

These are the best true wireless earbuds to get at the moment. Sony packs in more features here than most other companies do in their flagship offerings, and these buds are representative of that.

$228 at Amazon

You can pick up the Beats Fit Pro earbuds for just $150 right now during the Prime Day sale. These are our top picks for the best headphones for running thanks to their comfortable, IPX4 design, great sound quality with adaptive EQ, good ANC and transparency mode and solid battery life.

$150 at Amazon

The Bose QuietComfort Ultra earbuds are on sale for $229 right now. Bose has consistently provided the best wireless earbuds for noise cancellation, and the QC Ultra are the latest and our top pick at the moment. In addition to stellar ANC, these buds support spatial audio, gesture controls for volume adjustment and a formidable battery life.

$229 at Amazon

The Roku Streaming Stick 4K has dropped to $30 for Prime Day. One of the best streaming devices available today, this model supports 4K HDR content, long-range Wi-Fi, Apple AirPlay and private listening through the companion mobile app.

$30 at Amazon

The Sonos Ray soundbar has dropped to $219 for Prime Day, which is the best price we've seen it. In our testing, it provided good sound quality for both TV audio and music, impressive bass performance for a soundbar of its size and an attractive, compact design.

It earned a spot on our list of the best soundbars thanks to all of those features. Plus, at this sale price, it's a relatively affordable way to upgrade any TV's audio.

$219 at Amazon

The Google Pixel 8a has dropped to $449 for Prime Day. This is our top pick for the best midrange smartphone you can get right now, as it builds off of the solid foundation found in Google’s Pixel 7a. The 8a boasts a colorful 120Hz OLED touchscreen, excellent cameras, solid performance and a good battery life.

$449 at Amazon

The Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra has dropped to $1,199.99 for Prime Day. This is probably overkill for most users, but nevertheless, it’s our top pick for the best premium handset in our best Android phones guide. It stands out for its luxe build quality, speedy performance, excellent cameras and handy new AI tools.

$1,200 at Amazon

Our choice of best MacBook overall is down to $750 from $1,099 — the $899 sale price represents an 18 percent discount and there's an additional $50 coupon that will bring the final price down to $750. This sale is available for the 256GB model with 8GB of RAM and no AppleCare+ included.

Apple's 2024 MacBook Air has a 13.6-inch Liquid Retina Display that can support one billion different colors. We gave it a 90 in our review thanks to offers like a 1080p FaceTime HD camera, three mics and up to 18 hours of battery life.

$750 at Amazon

The base 13-inch M2 MacBook Air has dropped to a record low of $799. This was already our favorite budget MacBook and now it's an even better deal at this price.

While you can get the technically more powerful M3 MacBook Air now, most people won't notice the performance differences between the two. If you're coming from an older, Intel-based MacBook, any M-series machine will feel like a big upgrade. This M2 laptop excels thanks to its stellar performance, excellent screen and thin-and-light design.

The Razer Blade 15 with an Intel Core i7-13800H processor, 16GB of RAM, a 1TB SSD and an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 GPU is on sale for $1,600. That’s the lowest price we’ve seen for this config and $100 less than its street price over the past couple of months. This model includes a 15.6-inch, 16:9 display with 1440p resolution and a 240Hz refresh rate.

The Blade 15 is the “premium” recommendation in our gaming laptop buying guide. It’s more than a year old at this point, and even with this discount, it’s not as good of a value as our overall top pick (the ASUS ROG Zephyrus G14, which isn’t a part of Amazon’s sale). Instead, you’d get a Blade for its design, which is marked by clean lines and a sturdy, all-black aluminum finish. (It is a fingerprint magnet, though.) This config is powerful enough to play modern AAA games in 1080p or 1440p beyond that — again, the latter may require you to tune down settings in certain games to see very high frame rates — and it comes with a healthy array of ports. You can also upgrade its storage and memory. It can get hot, and its battery life isn’t great, but it’s at least a little more appealing at this price if you want a 15-inch gaming machine and are particular about your notebook’s look and feel.

Another config with an RTX 4060 GPU is on sale for $1,300, which is a new low and $200 less than the street price we’ve seen over the last month. That model is meant more for 1080p gaming, however, and it won’t be as futureproof with AAA games going forward.

$1,600 at Amazon

The Sonos Era 100 speaker is on sale for $199 right now, which is an all-time low. In our testing, it impressed with excellent sound quality (along with even better stereo-pair sound), easier TruePlay tuning, Bluetooth and in-line support and a simple yet attractive design.

It's on our list of the best smart speakers you can get thanks to its Alexa compatibility and it's ability to work with Sonos' own voice assistant. However, you don't have to use any voice assistant at all if you don't want to (and it notably does not support the Google Assistant).

$199 at Amazon

This Dyson V15 Detect Plus vacuum has dropped to a record low of $570 for Prime Day. The V15 Detect is our top pick for the best cordless vacuum you can get right now because it has fantastic suction power (making it great for pet owners as well as anyone else), a lightweight design and good battery life — plus it comes with a number of useful attachments.

$570 at Amazon

You can snag an Amazon-exclusive bundle of the Dyson Airwrap for $125 off thanks to Prime Day deals. Normally priced at $675, this bundle is now on sale for $550 for Prime Day.

In addition to the Airwrap and its storage case, the bundle includes six attachments: two long barrels, three brushes and the Coanda smoothing dryer, plus a filter cleaning brush, a detangling comb and another storage bag. That's enough to achieve a bunch of different hairstyles with one tool, and you get a couple of ways to store the machine when you're not using it or when you need to travel with it.

$550 at Amazon

The Roomba Essentials Combo machine is on sale for $190 for Prime Day. This model ups the ante a bit by adding in mopping capabilities to the usual robot-vacuum formula. It’s the most affordable vac-and-mop machine that iRobot makes, and it’s an even better buy at this sale price.

Admittedly, not everyone will need (or want) mopping capabilities in their robovac. But it's a convenient feature to have, especially if you have a mix of hard and carpeted floors in your home.

$190 at Amazon

This Shark AI Ultra robot vacuum is half off and down to only $294.99 right now. A version of one of our top picks for the best robot vacuums, it supports cleaning schedules and home mapping, plus it comes with a self-emptying base that can hold up to 60 days worth of debris. The base is also bagless, so you don't have to buy and replace proprietary garbage bags in it over time.

The TheraGun Mini 2.0 has dropped to $149 for Prime Day, a sale price that represents a $50 discount. The runners on the Engadget staff appreciate this percussion massage gun for its compact size, three speeds and swappable attachments.

Actual massages are expensive and most people don't have the time or the funds to get them regularly. Athletes and those who could benefit from giving a little extra love to their muscles will appreciate how easy the TheraGun Mini makes it for them to do it themselves at home.

$149 at Amazon

The Fitbit Charge 6 is on sale for $100 for Prime Day, which is an all-time low. This is the most capable fitness tracker than Fitbit makes, completely with a built-in GPS for mapping outdoor workouts, automatic activity tracking and all-day step, calorie and sleep tracking.

The Charge 6 sits at the top of our list of the best fitness trackers you can get precisely because it has such a comprehensive feature set. It also has a seven-day battery life, so you won't have to worry about recharging it for days on end.

The Ninja Creami ice cream maker is on sale for $150, which is $50 off the list price and within a dollar of its all-time low. The machine earned a high score of 90 in our review, with our reviewer saying it “makes your frozen dreams come true.” 

He liked how quickly and easily it made ice cream, and was impressed with its ability to make other treats, like sorbets and froyo. And even though this took up a bit of space in his small kitchen, it's something he's willing to make room for. 

$150 at Amazon

The Breville Smart Oven Air Fryer Pro is now $300 after Prime Day takes 25 percent off the $400 list price — that’s the lowest price we’ve seen over the past year. 

The Breville Smart Oven is what we recommend for an air fryer and toaster oven combo. It’s huge, with the capacity to accommodate a five-quart dutch oven, which almost makes it an auxiliary oven — ideal for those who entertain or are cooking for a crowd. 

Despite the "smart" in the name, this isn't app-connected, rather, the term refers to internal technologies that adjust and direct the heat as you cook.
