Update: Amazon Prime Day 2019 has ended. Check back in summer 2020 for coverage of the next Prime Day

Amazon's shopping holiday has begun and will run through the end of today, Tuesday, July 16. The equivalent of Black Friday in July, this year's Prime Day features a number of great deals on components such as processors, graphics cards and storage drives as well as savings on PCs, peripherals and monitors.

Although shoppers must be Prime members to participate, anyone can sign up for a free 30-day Prime membership trial.  Below, you'll find a continuously-updated list of our favorite Amazon Prime Day deals.

Tom's Hardware sorts through thousands of deals to offer the best prices from the trustworthy retailers.

What Is Amazon Prime Day?

Prime Day began in July 2015 when Amazon celebrated its 20-year anniversary with 24 hours of deals exclusively for Prime members. The event was a hit, so the following year Amazon branded it as a "deals holiday" comparing it to Black Friday. In 2017, Amazon expanded Prime Day from 24 hours to 30 hours. In 2018, Amazon expanded Prime Day again adding six hours for a total of 36 hours of deals. Prime Day 2019 will last for 48 hours and will be celebrated in 18 countries.

I'm not a Prime Member. How Can I Shop Prime Day deals?

To participate in Prime Day, you need a Prime membership. If you're already a subscriber, you're good to go. Otherwise, you can start your free, 30-day Prime membership trial at any time. After your trial is up, you'll be charged $119 for a full year of Prime unless you cancel. (Or you can opt to pay $12.99/month for Prime membership with no commitment. Just keep in mind, paying monthly for a full year is pricier than doing an annual payment).

Can Prime Student Members Shop Prime Day Deals?

Amazon Prime Student is a budget version of Amazon's traditional Prime membership. To qualify, you must be enrolled in college and have a valid edu-based e-mail address. Prime Student members get six free months of Prime (instead of the usual 30-day trial) and they only pay $59/year for membership, which is 50% cheaper than a full Prime membership. Prime Student members benefit from many of the same Prime perks such as speedy, 2-day shipping, Amazon Video streaming, and the ability to shop Prime Day deals. (Sign up for your free 6-month Prime Student trial here).

    I wonder if they'll have the same problems like they did last year where for the first half of the day the site was down for most of the country? All most of saw was just that picture of the dog. Once the site was back up, most of the best deals were already sold out.

    So many front page posts about Prime day. If I didn't know any better, I'd say Amazon was sponsoring these "ads".

    Everyone and their mother is probably googling about prime day, I would highly doubt anyone is sponsoring prime day ads given how widespread it already is.

    Saw an article saying that the employees were going to do a walk out on Prime Day. So what? As long as the orders process I don't care if I save $100 today and have to wait a couple of extra days to get it.

    True! I've been browsing on sites myself for good deals. The employees are going on a "strike" tomorrow, but not exactly the whole day. It would be nice if Jeff Bezos gets to fix these issues with his employees. These good deals won't be good enough if there aren't any workers packing stuff so...
