Amazon Prime Day's Back for a Second Day. Here Are the Best Deals.

Prime Day arrives October 13-14 with a bevy of sales on, well, everything.

Grace Han/Thrillist

A lot of shoppers want to avoid Amazon whenever possible. That could be because of the way the company has responded to unionization efforts or to make sure the ubiquitous site doesn't put your favorite bookstore out of business. But it happens. Especially in the middle of a pandemic, when it's safer to order delivery than it is to peruse store shelves.

That's doubly true during Amazon Prime Day on October 13 and 14, which acts as a sort of premature Black Friday sale. Like last year, Amazon Prime Day 2020 will run for two days with a deluge of sales on thousand and thousands of products, including laptops, kitchen appliances, TVs, video games, home items, sports gear, travel gear, and of course, Amazon's own devices and services. You can even score a bunch of food and drink deals -- ranging from groceries to booze -- throughout the two-day shopping frenzy.

Amazon's nearly never-ending lineup of deals is the main event, but don't forget that competing retailers are vying for a piece of the Prime Day pie with their own sales events this week. Savvy customers will find equally good -- if not better -- discounts from stores like Target, Walmart, Best Buy, GameStop, and many others. It might as well be the Olympics for hardcore comparison shoppers. Between all of the blowout sales, best of luck not ending up with three 55" TVs, a Roomba for every room, a fancy new KitchenAid stand mixer for all your holiday baking, and enough AirPods to get you through the next 10 years. Hopefully.    

Amazon updates its sales throughout Prime Day's 48-hour run, which can be a bit overwhelming. Unless you're looking for a specific TV model, game, or, say, Instant Pot, there are an anxiety-inducing number of products on sale, and the sale kind of asks you to be constantly refreshing the page to find the best deals. To make life a little easier during an already anxiety-inducing time, we've sifted the pages and pages of offers to extract the best deals and discounts on items you actually want. Bookmark this page and check back throughout the day (both days!), as we'll be updating as new products are added to the sale, as sale times end, and as items sell out. 

Here are the best deals you're going to find on Prime Day.
