In case you missed the announcement a few days ago, Amazon announced the second iteration of Amazon Prime Day, set for July 12th. In the meantime, the retail giant has been offering several Countdown Deals each day to whet your appetite for the big day. These deals have included a decent variety of items, and you can keep track of the deals as they happen at the Amazon Prime Day landing page. We’re detailing a couple of the tech-related deals that you can get as they come up on the Countdown Deals. There are a few items of interest in today’s deals, so let’s get to it!
Just a reminder before we begin: as with last year, Amazon Prime Day deals and Prime Day Countdown Deals will be open to Prime subscribers only. Not a Prime member? Sign up for a free 30 day trial and see what Prime has to offer. Already a Prime member but want to give the gift of Prime to a friend or family member? That’s easy to do as well. Without further ado, on to the deals!
