Prime Day, Amazon’s annual sales bonus, began and continues through Wednesday, October 14, with tons of exclusive deals for Prime members. And, of course, Best Buy, Target and Walmart, along with every other big retailer under the sun, wouldn’t want to miss the action. They all offer great discounts of their own – and you don’t have to be a Prime member to take advantage of them.
In the case of Best Buy, it is an early sale on Black Friday. Some (but not all) of the prices are guaranteed to match Best Buy̵
We will update this story regularly when new offers arrive and others expire.

Sony has measured more than Bose in the wireless noise-canceling headphones game over the past few years, but the Bose QuietComfort 35 II is not yet sneezing.

Pound for pound, the TCL 6 series is a better TV than this. But at the time of writing, this model is $ 1,400 and this Samsung sells for just under $ 1,200. Advantage: Samsung. Oh, and did we mention it’s 75-inches?

A solid phone for only $ 100? Yes, there are some trade-offs here, including a relatively low 720p screen and only 32 GB of base storage. But consider the pros: The screen is luxurious 6.4 inches, works with Android 10 and has three rear cameras. Moto G Fast vs. Moto E: Here’s a Motorola phone under $ 200 to buy.

High-definition video, quick alerts that (mostly) recognize what triggers the motion sensor and support for the three main smart assistants, Siri, Alexa and Google Assistant, make the Arlo Pro 3’s security camera setup win. Usually the price is a violator of the deal, but at a discount of $ 200 you will not find many systems with so many features at a lower price. The Arlo Pro 3 is the outdoor home security camera you need to beat.

One of the best-sounding small Bluetooth speakers, the Bose SoundLink Revolve is equipped with 12 hours of battery life and a tripod base underneath. There is no built-in voice assistant that can be a transaction violator for some. But if all you’re looking for is a miniature Bluetooth speaker that sounds great, you won’t get into Bose much cheaper. Amazon has it at the same price during Prime Day. Mini Bluetooth speaker, maximum sound.
